Print spooler resends data if long delay between labels zebra
We are using the peel off function on a zebra lp2844 with label sensor. if we wait too long between removing the labels the print spooler thinks the printer is out of paper and resends all label data exsample : label 1,2 3,(1 minute delay) label 4,1,2,3,4 this is very frustrating and Zebra can not help at all. we are in a windows terminal server environment and the zebra is on a dlink print server. If we pull the labels constently one right after the other the setup works just fine.

Define your label size correctly. Measure your LABEL exactly, do not include the backing paper or the gap. Calibrate the printer. HOW? Power off printer. Press and hold the green feed button down and power printer on. Count one, two and release green button. The printer will calibrate and move labels and then print some stuff on the label. Wait until it has comletely stopped. wait another few seconds and the press the feed key once. The printer will print "out of dump". You should now be ready to print again.
I would think you are printing using a printer driver for the LP2844, not using the lexmark driver. Depending on whose Zebra driver you're using, one setting to check would be to make sure the web sensor is being used for type of media sensor. The names for this setting vary but can usually be found in the printing preferences tab.
Is the printer set for label taken, if it is then it is waiting for the sensor to see the label is gone before printing the next one. Apart from that, check the settings in the driver and make sure it is all set correctly
The LP2844 can only print on Direct Thermal labels.
DT labels have the ink within the label and the labels react to heat. If these labels are to be exposed to direct sunlight they will eventually turn black.
If you scrape the label with fingernail you can usually see the black ink on label
The physical size of the labels is this max width 1 inch (MInimum) to 4 inches (Max). Maximum length of label depends on the amount of memory in printer but maximum size for standard LP2844 is 11 inches. With full memory can be 22 inches long.
The labels must be on a 1 inch core.
These printer can handle all label types.
1: die cut Labels - Use gap sensing.*
2: Labels with Black mark on back - Use Black mark*
3: Continuous roll - select continuous *
* Select in printer driver media setting
Use the latest ZDesigner Driver V1.5.10
Download from Zebra Website.
Printer Preferences - Advanced Setup - Media Type.
Check the label size is set correctly in the application. Try using a driver from Nice Label or Seagull Scientific websites to suit Z4M (Not Z4M Plus). Recalibrate the printer and try again. Remember to setup the driver correctly because the driver will override the printer settings.
