Printer dropping every 12th label

I print over 500 labels a week on a tractor feed, and every 12th label is missing. I have to reprint them manually one by one. Any ideas on what the problem could be? I tried going into the default-setting mode, the printer beeps once, the lights blink, but it does not print a message with a prompt. Appreciate any help...

Re: printer dropping every 12th label

You have to tell the computer on what type of paper you're printing on. try changing the settings to "german std fold". also make sure that the area that the data is in is not bigger than the label.

Use a DYMO Label/Writer Cleaning Card #60622. One should have come with your printer. Just remove the labels, run this cleaning pad through a few times, insert the labels, and print.

Can't print labels

I found out that each time you print from the manual load tray, i.e. letters and labels, once you have the paper in the manual load tray press print and then press the demo button to start the manual feed. I hope this helps.

Zebra 2844 Not printing at all

if the red light is coming on and staying on, it might be a sensor problem. Try pushing on the lid and see if the light goes to green. If it does, it' s the gap sensor. This is how the printer "reads" the labels gaps-the little spaces between the labels. We've solve this in the short term by covering the sensor and manually setting the gap through the programming command prompt,
