Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells 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 pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).

WordPerfect prints a blank label after each request


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.

Hope this helps a little.....

ZEBRA LP 2844 PRINTING PROBLEM IN USPS SHIPPING ASSISTANT


Are you sure that the page size is wrong, or are you just guessing because of the way that the label is printing? I would uninstall the driver - delete the printer from printers and faxes and remove the driver from Server Properties (in the file drop down in Printers and Faxes). Go to ups.zebra.com/ctp and get the latest driver - you have to have the UPS version of the driver in order to support pass-through printing. Go into your UPS Ship Asst application and make sure that the generic thermal is not checked.

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 LP2844 Thermal Printer won't print from a browser


I posted this problem last week and since that time discovered the problem (at least for me). I had to replace the HD and failed to update a current version of Java. Without Java in place I could call for it to print but the print job would disappear into thin air. After installing a current version of Java the machine began printing again and has worked perfectly.
