Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Problem Printing I have a zebra Printer (model LP 2844). I am having problems printing out labels, it will not run unless I apply pressure and hold down the top of the printer. Anytime I release the pressure the light that is around the green button will change to red and the printing will stop until I apply the pressure and hold down the lid. Is there some type of adjustment that I can do to the printer? Any help would be great. Thanks

    Same problem here :(

    Now, even when I apply pressure, the paper comes out, but blank, with nothing printed on it.

It appears you have a broken latch lock on 1 or both sides of the cover. There is nothing you can do settings wise. You will need to look into the printer for the broken section & probably replace the part(s) that are broken. I have a PDF file I can send you or you can download from Zebra.com RESOURCE LIBRARY section. The PDF is too large to post here. The latch is easy to replace if your slightly technical. Most replacement instructions are in the manual. Let me know if this helps.

MY ZEBRA LP 2844-Z IS PRINTING BLANK, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Since the LP2844 is a direct thermal printer, the first thing to check is to make sure you have direct thermal labels - regular label stock won't work. Just quickly scrape your thumbnail across the label, the friction will cause a black line if the label is direct thermal.

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Light Printing on a Zebra 2844


You will know when the printhead is starting to wear out by seeing white vertical lines. The line is a "void" area caused by an element/elements that are worn away - no image is being produced. Darkness is usually controlled by the printer driver and/or the label software being used.

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page


possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.

Zebra LP 2844 prints blanks


If the printer is printing nothing but blanks, try another roll of labels.

If the printer is printing blanks in between labels, it probably needs to be gap sensed. You can do this by:
1. turn the printer off.
2. hold the feed button down and then power the printer back on while still holding the feed button down.
3. release the feed button when the light flashes.
4. the printer will then regap itself
5. when the regapping is done, press the feed button once. It will print on the label that it is 'out of dump'
6. the printer should then be ready to go.
