Zebra tlp 2844-z stops after printing first label

We've swapped our old computer with the new one and installed all drivers and established the network connection to Zebra printer. When it prints the labels it stops after printing first label about 99% finished. Then it flashes red or it might be amber I'm not sure. Does anyone know what do I need to do? Paper is setup correctly 4x6. It prints configuration without any problems. Could it be memory issue? I'm printing from Adobe Reader.

TIA

This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.

SOURCE: Zebra TLP 2844 Controlling the font size w/iSeries??

Hi Burgymon,

The font that is used under the barcode will use the last font properties described prior to the barcode in the output. You may want to suppress the human readable option and create a separate text field to display the text version of the barcode contents.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z appears to print from the iSeries/AS400 but nothing prints no error message Set up same as other Zebra printers that are working printing bar codes


check the connection configuration (if is com port, check speed, flow control and others)
Try to install locally with segull drivers (www.seagullscientific.com) if you need, reset to factory defult. print a test label from the driver. if is comunicate, is not printer problem, is connection problem with your software.
