Problem Printing Barcode labels on Zebra TLP 3842

I have a C# application (.NET 3.5 SP1) that I am printing serial numbers for product for a manufacturing company. I am using Active Reports 3 (ver. 5.2.385.2) to print these labels. However, when the printer(Zebra TLP 3842) has an issue, it seems like the printer queue reprints the print job. This causes duplicate serial numbers to be printed. Does anyone know how to ensure that this will not happen. I would rather not have a serial number print than have duplicate serial numbers.

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

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools (in Clasic view), and double click on Services. Scroll down and right-click on "Print Spooler". Start (or Restart) it and your printers will reappear in the "Printers and Faxes" window, and the spooler will try to send jobs to the printers again.

If you check the Properties of the Print Spooler, on the Recovery tab, you can set it to "Restart the Service". I set mine to Restart on the First Failure and Second Failure, and Take No Action on the Third Failure, in case something really needs attention.

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. The problem is that the printer has different printing parameters, or speed or darkness. Adjust to be equal in the print server as workstation.

How do I stop my printer from skipping a blank row of labels in between each row I print?


I was using LibreOffice Writer to print terminal block labels on my TDP43MY and was having all kinds of problems. (I tried EasyMark too, but had just as many problems.) The printer was constantly switching landscape and portrait modes on me. It would print 2 sets of good labels (portrait) and then the next label would be landscape. It did this no matter if I printed one page at a time or if I printed the whole document. I spent over half a day trying to get it to work, and finally succeeded - read on.

No surprise that the Panduit TDP43MY printer is really a Zebra printer. I discovered this by accident when I first got the printer. I connected it without first installing the driver and windows asked for a driver for a Zebra printer. Knowing it was a Panduit, I rejected windows offer and installed the Panduit driver. I spent a whole day trying to get it to print correctly and decided I would try windows recommendation of a Zebra driver. I did some digging and discovered it is a Zebra TLP 3842 printer. I removed the Panduit driver and installed the Zebra TLP 3842 driver. The version I have says "Windows driver for ZDesigner TLP 3842 Version 5.1.07.6290 Copyright 2016". I then used LibreOffice Writer to print my labels again. Wonder of wonders it printed with ZERO problems! Yeah for Zebra!

Hi, I am having Zebra TLP 2844 barcode printer.I have installed the printer in my machine. I have tried to take barcode labels.From application, for each and every label i need to generate the label in PDF...


The TLP2844 can print from any windows application providing the application can use a windows printer driver.
The page size oof the .pdf needs to be the same size as the physical label size.

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.
