Calibration problems Zebra TLP 2844-Z

Hi,

We are sending the following .txt file to the printer:

^XA
^FO150,10^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 1^FS
^FO150,30^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 1^FS
^FO150,50^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 1^FS
^FO150,70^BY3
^BEN,60,N,N
^FD12345678^FS
^XZ
^XA
^FO150,10^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 2^FS
^FO150,30^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 2^FS
^FO150,50^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 2^FS
^FO150,70^BY3
^BEN,60,N,N
^FD12345678^FS
^XZ
^XA
^FO150,10^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 3^FS
^FO150,30^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 3^FS
^FO150,50^ACN,20,20^FDthis is label 3^FS
^FO150,70^BY3
^BEN,60,N,N
^FD12345678^FS
^XZ

We have also defined a new label format under "Paper/Output" -> "Paper Layout" and recalibrated the printer.

The first one or two labels often print correctly, but then the printer tends to skip a few labels before it prints the third label (and the red light starts to flash). Sometimes none of the labels are printed correctly, and the text is placed "helter-skelter" on the label ribbon.

Does anyone know how to solve this...?

Regards,
Mari

Your printing a 3 accross label, i think your ZPL command is wrong u must define the X and Y Coordinates of each field.
This is a sample of a ZPL command that i'd wrote. Im using a 1.5 x 1 inch. label

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.
