Question about Zebra Eltron LP 2824 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Printer is printing off center

I have a n LP 2824 printer. everytime I print, the print is off center causing my bar code to be unreadable (too far to the right). Currently I have to use a spacer to push the roll over to print in the center. How do you recenter the printer so that I can stop using a spacer. The spacer causes the roll of paer to fall of sometimes.

Doubleclick on that printer's icon, goto properties and select the advanced tab.
Click "Printing Defaults" and if you have the proper driver for this you should see a "paper/output" option
Write down the paper size.
Click on that line and a button will appear.
Click on that button and find the paper size you are using.
Now you can set you margins or change you paper size
Make sure you are using the proper units, the default entry is centimeters. You probably need inches

Printing on edge

Your software label template does not match the size label your printing on. Make sure your label size IE: 2.25" x 1.25" matches the template size in the software, then perform this calibration:

Zebra eltron LP 2824 printing too light

This could simply be old direct thermal labels. Direct thermal labels have a shelf life of about 1 year from the date of manufacture. After that time has lapsed the thermal coating on the labels begins to dissipate and this will cause labels to print light or faded. You can trouble shoot with a roll known to be fresh. You can get one free here to test Labeldomain com .

Our LP 2824 Zebra printer stalls with red light when printing labels. Tried calibrating but it stalls with solid red light before printing out data

Try another roll of labels? If that doesn't help, it may have a problem with the sensor that checks the starting point of the label. These are old so it's easy and cheap to replace with a similar unit.

Prints half of label

Restart your computer. Turn your printer off and back on again. Restart your software for printing lables. When updating the printer drivers, all software needs to be restarted to make sure that the form controls are working properly.
