The physical label size must be set in the printer driver, both in the "Properties" and the "Default" tabs.

Everytime I print a label it stops short of the


This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.

My zebra tlp 2844 is loaded with perforated labels 2''x1.38''. each time it prints a label, it spits out about 20 blank labels, then the light goes red and won't print again.


Calibrate it! Hold down the green feed key while powering on and then release when it flashed red. If this fails, look at the page size in the driver or the "Q" and "q" EPL commands that you are sending from you application. Make the proper dots to inches conversion and try again.

When you say 2 x 1.38, it sounds like the labels are 2" wide by 1.38" long. I do not believe that the length is below a specified minumum, but this information is not on the spec sheet. Try tech support if all else fails.

Prints only part of label


Fixed problem. Labels were too thin so LED was still being detected to stop progress of labels. Fixed by sticking some backing paper over the sensor and seems to be working fine.

Solid red light. This indicates the printer is in an error state and will not print until the error is cleared. Check to make sure the printer is not out of labels or out of ribbon if it is a TLP model.
A solid red light will occur if
  • the printer is out of labels
  • the printer is out of ribbon ( TLP models only )
  • the printhead is open, not latched down all the way. Press down on the top cover of the printer to see if the error light clears and goes to green.
  • the ribbon spool is slipping on the ribbon spool holder on TLP models:

Zebra S4M prints one label then goes to flashing pause light.


most likely it is a printer driver issue. There's 2 drivers, one for 200dpi and one for 300dpi. Use the one for 200dpi. It could also be the label setting is incorrect. Try running a calibration.

Hold the feed button while turning on the printer. After a config label prints, turn the printer off and then on again, and try printing again.

Also, make sure the lid is closed far enough to engage the lid sensor. If the red light comes on again, press down a bit on the lid, hit the feed button and try to print again.

Zebra TLP 2844 Error Condition


Qusetion, Using USB my TLP2844 detects as a LP2844ps. Weird, huh? Also when I calibrate it the label does not stop at the perferation. When I print half goes on one label and the other half goes on the next label. Someone told me once there was a trick to get it to calibrate correctly. Anyone here know this? When I print a test page, it feed the correct amount of label.
