Are you using thermal paer or thermal transfer?

Get one label and place a cigarrette lighter next to it for less than one second. If the label turns dark like supermarket receipts, then is thermal paper. (In this case let me know and we will try to diagnose what the problem is)

If the label does not turn dark at all, then you have the wrong type of labels for this printer unless you have the option to use ribbon.

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!

How can you configure Zebra printer 105sl (over network) to print labels in IE and have a regular printer from reducing the document size from a thin client?


I have this issue whenever I set my default printer to a label printer. Use the other printer as the default and set to the zebra only when you need it.

Using MS Access, I am printing labels to a Zebra 110XiIII printer. The output truncates the label to 2" instead of the 3.5" I have the report page settings saved as. I have been through the setup...


First check printer. Change setting "Print Width" to maximum width, save. Switch off. Hold down pause key while switching on (untill all but power light turns off). the subsequent prints should print across the full width. If this is OK fault is with label format.

If you are using windows printer driver check settings there this can over ride printer settings. If using ZPL the problem is most likely in the label format.

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.

Same here... Can't be the printer - has to be something with either the paypal software or the driver since my 'SAMPLE' prints solid as well. Did you ever find a solution?

Zebra LP2824 not printing


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.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Test page print within Win XP


This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.
