Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Prints out 2 labels at once

My Zebra LP 2844 printer would print out two labels at once (a good one followed by a blank one). I checked allof the settings and everything seems to be correct with 0 margins in between each label. How can I fix this problem? Thanks!

    I have the exact same problem. I get a correct label printed and another blank label. It seems as though there is a formfeed being sent by the printer. I use the same code to print to a Zebra LP 2844-Z and it works fine. Just the LP 2844 is having the problem. I was tryin under VISTA when I first experienced the problem, but another person here tried using Windows 2000 and had the same problem with the 2844.

    I have the same problem except sometimes I will get multiple "form feeds" after it prints a good 4x6 label. This is very annoying and wastes labels. Th only thing that seems to work is using FedEx labels, but I know that is not a real solution. The labels I got from UPS should work fine, but the don't. Is my printer going south?

I've seen this be due to dirty sensor or misconfigured media setting.  Clean the sensor in the middle of the edge on the inside and outside of the printer, then if still having trouble - Inside the printer it should tell you that if you are having printing trouble:

  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pages print some info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
You have just made it reconfigure media, and it may know when to stop feeding now.

    To be clear - random numbers of blank pages would be due to sensor trouble (not seeing the end of the page sometimes) while always 2 pages would be misconfigured into thinking the labels are longer than they really are.

    (Because the fedex labels are a little longer than the normal ones due to the fedex blurb at the bottom)

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
