SOURCE: Label Printing Issue

Send the shipping label to the printer first in your software.

This isn't a printer issue. It only prints stuff in the order received.

First:  try a new **** of paper, if that works; it means your paper got damp, or old and stuck together.  Try fanning the stack of paper with your thumb on the edge, like a deck of cards.  If that works, this is why: The most common reason for paper feed issues is Humidity; when paper gets wet or hangs from the tray for weeks or months at a time, they tend to pick up the moisture in their environment...


If that doesn't work and its only four months old: you're very fortunate in that you can still send it in for warranty repair by going to the Manufacturer's website, if purchased in the USA:go to:


If not, try typing canon warranty repair, into your search engine.


I recommend using the phone number instead of the web site because most Customer Service representatives have the authority to email a free shipping label,  Make sure to ask as some companies will not offer unless you do.  Ask for a pre-paid, shipping label along with an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization), they may say no on the pre-paid label but you won't know, for sure, unless you ask.


Make sure to keep your paper in a cool, dry, place, after you get your printer repaired or replaced :)

I have a zebra lb2844 label printer. Does anyone know if it can be used as a receipt printer instead? I am looking for a generic driver that may work as the supplied one wants a label size. (I want to...

Normally this printer s meant to print labels.
To have them work as line printers there is only one thing to do. Start the printer while pressing on the button. When it starts feedingthe paper release the button. After printing the configuration it will act as a line printer. But the best way to use it as a receipt printer is to create a program which will send the information to the printer through a windows driver if your software can do that

some new items usually come with shipping tape, and foam cushions for travel. make sure you check the manual for the unpacking instructions, as it should show where all the little cushions are, to be removed.

I can't find a driver for my ELTRON LP2443PSA thermal label printer. Please help

Please send me an e-mail to:

With the subject line: Eltron Orion LP2443 PSAT Label Printer, and I will be more than glad to help you.

If you will use this subject line, then it will be easier for me to identify that the message that you are going to send me is NOT spam message. Because I get a lot of junk mail per day. Which is about 75% of the total e-mail's that I get in my inbox every day. And usually I do not have time to go through reading all of my messages, so if the message title will look suspicious, or all capital letters, or all small letters, than I may flag your message as "Spam".

I have the same exact printed which I also bought at the end of January, 2009, which I originally received without any drivers at all, but after I spend a lot of time looking, and with hard work, I finally found the correct drivers that I use for this same exact Thermal Label Printer.

Also, just a suggestion: If you are going to use this printer for shipping online, then you can go to, and get free Thermal Shipping Labels to use with UPS shipping service.

Currently, I have 2 completely compatible working drivers for this label printer. 1 of the drivers is for Windows 2000, or earlier systems, and the other driver is for Windows XP, or later operating systems. I use the second driver, with Windows Vista, and I have no problems using my Thermal Label Printer.

Therefore, I do not remember where I exactly downloaded the 2x drivers for this Thermal Label Printer, and do not have enough time to upload them online, because I am very busy, but, I do have 2x of the drivers downloaded on my computer, in it's own folder, that I can upload later on to some online file sharing site, like

So, if you still need the drivers for this Thermal Label Printer, please send me an e-mail, and I will be more than glad to help you with both getting the drivers, and if I will have time, or if it won't take me very long time, Installing this Thermal Label Printer on your computer.

Hope I could help you. Thank you very much.

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.

Military Shipping Labels

If your not getting an error message I would suspect that the margins have somehow been set beyond the printable area. I don't know what the width on a "Military Shipping Label" is but I've had issues with Zebra label printers printing on the very edges of the labels.
