Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer
My TLP 2344-Z print perfectly from a file but when a try to print directly from my application the printer is blocked and a solid red light replace the green one immediately. From my application, if I print to a file and then send the file to the printer there is no problem. But when a use directly the OUTPUT TO PRINTER the problem appears. I have windows Vista.
Check the DPI setting. With Zebra printers some print at a 203 DPI and others print at 300DPI. You will need to confirm what DPI level the printer supports and verify that the driver in the application is using the correct one. If you do the process to have the printer print its default config I believe it lists the DPI there

Hold the feed button while turning on the printer. After a config label
prints, turn the printer off and then on again, and try printing again.
Also, make sure the lid is closed far enough to engage the lid sensor. If the red light comes on again, press down a bit on the lid, hit the feed button and try to print again.
