Improper printing of barcodes

Hi, My zebra tlp 2844 barcode printer is not printing properly. when given a quantity of more than one piece to print it cuts off the barcode and continues it on the next label. I use the bar-one 6.0 lite software with the zebra printer. Does anyone know how adjust the settings from the software do that the barcode prints on one label again?

Re: improper printing of barcodes

Recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size

Print intensity settings getting lost

Sorry I don't think there is any system of saving the darkness setting, as it is thermal barcode level printer. It will always give you the save color depending on drum heat.

Labels not printing properly

El problema es que la impresora tiene diferentes parametros de impresion, de oscuridad o velocidad. Ajustalos para que sean iguales en el print server como en workstation.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

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.
