I have a Zebra LP 2844-Z which has been working fine. This morning I have come in and attempted to use it and it only prints about 1/2 inch of the bar code and stops. It also has a green flashing light. The light blinks twice each time. What can I do?

Try this START SETTINGS PRINTER/FAXES in the pop up window go to FILE/SERVER PROPERTIES DRIVERS SELECT THE MFC5440 DRIVER AND REMOVE SELEST THE LP 2844 DRIVER AND REMOVE Now go to www.seagullscientific.com and download the Zebra driver pack, once downloaded run it and install the Zebra Lp2844 to with the USb port.
This should solve the problem, if not please come back.
possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.
If the printer is printing nothing but blanks, try another roll of labels.
If the printer is printing blanks in between labels, it probably needs to be gap sensed. You can do this by: 1. turn the printer off. 2. hold the feed button down and then power the printer back on while still holding the feed button down. 3. release the feed button when the light flashes. 4. the printer will then regap itself 5. when the regapping is done, press the feed button once. It will print on the label that it is 'out of dump' 6. the printer should then be ready to go.
