Question about Zebra LP 2824 Printer
I have a zebra lp2824 printer which I cannot print from. I am using zebra seagul printer driver for this. The printer was working fine last week however I can no longer print to it.
I have tried the following:
Uninstalled and installed the drivers again.
Tried to print test page,however after a few attempts at it, it prints a long list of numbers like 2s0L0265 etc
I tried printing from the bartender software and it just prints t^t^t^.
I have also tried to connect the printer to a dofferent PC and have tried to print a test page from it(just to ensure that there is not a spooler service problem). The second PC had seagul drivers installed on it which were previously working however even trying to print a test page to it, it does not the same thing that after a few attempts it prints a list of numbers.
Your help will much appreciated. Thank you.
Sounds like you put your printer into line mode. Line mode prints code so you can see what is sent to the printer to look for possible mistakes in the code.
To switch from line mode back to page mode.
