I had the very same problem but I know it could be several different reasons. In my case it was a media calibration issue. To perform calibration switch the power OFF, then pres FEED button and hold it, Power ON still holding and after three red flashes release it. Calibration report will print out. At the end of that print you should get "PRESS FEED TO END". Do it and it should be ok. Let me know if that worked.

SOURCE: Zebra LP 2844 prints blanks
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.

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.

when submitting the print, un-tick the collate box. Use the properties section to check the speed settings in the driver and try again

With the printer off, press and hold the FEED key while you turn the printer on. When the LED flashes once, let go and a Config label will print.
Hope that helps !
