SOURCE: How Send EPL2 commands to USB

Use the Zebra ZUD driver. Latest version V5.5.7.25 (Download from Zebra website). When driver is installed, go to printer & Faxes folder and double-click on the installed printer icon.

Click Printer/properties/printer/advanced (+)/tools (Click on tools) This opens a text box. Type commands in here and send directly to printer. E.G type U click send and it will print a config sheet.

This definately works.

I am trying to install a lp 2824 plus zebra label printer and i need to know whether to select epl or zpl?


You should probably select ZPL, but that depends on which program you will use together with the printer.

How do I restore factory settings to a zebra barcode printer LP-2844-Z


The ^default command has been added to the EPL2 commands, starting in firmware version 4.39. This command will set the printer back to factory settings as long as the printer is in page mode. The command is not supported in line mode at this time. The command is case sensitive.
Syntax: ^default.
You can send the command to the printer via the parallel or serial port.
Parallel:
Open command prompt (DOS prompt) See windows instructions for details.
At the prompt type:
ECHO ^default>LPT1 <enter>
Serial:
Assuming standard communications on the printer of Baud 9600, No parity, 8 bits, 1 stop bit and use of COM 1:
At the prompt type:
Mode Com1:9600,n,8,1 <enter>
ECHO ^default>COM1 <enter>

How do I send EPL commands to Zebra TLP2844 printer through USB port?


You can use the driver to send commands to the Printer via any port you have setup to. See Printer Tab and then select Tools, in there you will find a field to send commands.

Zebra printers & MS Word


HI Les1810,

You should be printing faster with Zebra fonts.
Which driver are you using? Version?
I strongly recommend the Zebra Designer V1.3.08, available at Zebra.com

To isolate the problem, capture the output to a file.
Define a local port as C:\output.txt and set that as the port in driver properties.
Now print your document. The printer commands will be in C:\output.txt.

Send c:\output.txt directly to your printer.
For LPT1, use the DOS copy command to send the file. (Copy C:\output.txt LPT1)
For serial connections, use Hyperterm to send the file.
For network connections, use ftp.
No easy USB method is readily available.

Does this print faster than printing the original document from Word through the driver?
If yes, then update your driver.
If no, debug your communication to the printer (LPT1, serial, network, etc.)

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

Firmware corrupted? Only prints some random computer text


The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode:
Turn printer power off.
Hold the feed button while turning printer power on.
When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button.
When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button.
When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed.
Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.

This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.

Solid red light after flashing firmware


These are the 3 things listed as being wrong for the status light being solid red:
1. Media is out. Reload a new supply. Press feed button to
continue.
2. Power-up failure. Switch power OFF then back ON.
3. Printer ready to receive flash programming during
firmware download.


There's a programming manual available for download on Zebra's website: https://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html
It might help.
