Zebra LP2824 not printing

Hi

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.

Kind Regards,

Salma Sarwar

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.

  1. Turn printer off.
  2. Press and hold the feed button down. And switch printer on.
  3. Release the feed button when the LED flashes red.
  4. When the LED flashes green, press down the feed button.
  5. When the LED flashes amber release the feed button.
  6. Try printing now that the printer is back in page mode which is used for print your labels; line mode prints the labels code.
  7. Do this fast or else it wont work if you are slow.

Sounds like printer is set to line mode.

Line Mode - EPL1.

Check other posted solutions to show how to change modes.

Easiest way is to download the new setup utility from the Zebra Website.

Zebra LP2824 Not Printing


I had the same problem and could not fix it but called Zebra headquarters and they gave me this solution and it works! It sounds crazy but it works. Turn off the printer on the switch on the side. press and hold the button on the front of the machine while you turn it on. The light will turn red then release the button the light around the button will then turn a solid greed then blink green. While it is blinking green press and hold the button again until it the light turns orange and then release the button. This apparently puts your printer into line mode or something but anyway it works!
