Question about Zebra GX420t Thermal Printer
Turn it on, turn it off, still shoots out 3-6 pages then displays "Alert Paper Out" even though there is a full roll. Holding the "arrow" key and the "green" key until it blinks four times, but it still errors out.

Sounds like you will need to perform the calibration procedure.
when you access the menu system go to advanced menu, the password is 9999, use the keys to navigate to manual calibration and follow the instructions. when it states load backing this is refering to backing paper, so remove the labels from the backing and place in label path. hope this helps

Sometimes debris builds up in the bottom of the cutter assembly preventing the cutter from going all the down. There is a switch inside the cutter which trips the "jammed" error if the cutter can't go all the way down. The cutter can be removed and disassembled to remove the problem. Caution should be exercised. There are washers and springs on the cutter face plate guide screws which have to be removed.

Check their website. It should let you download the user's manual after you've logged in.
I work with these at my work-work, and the manuals are pretty handy to have!

1: Is it a TLP2844 or a TLP2844Z.
Operationally they are completely different printers. TLP2844 uses ELP (Eltron Programming Language. but TLP2844Z uses ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). You need to calibrate the printer to the labels.
If its a TLP2844. Load media. Connect power.
Hold down feed key, power on, count one, two, release feed key. The printer will go through a calibtation routine and print config label. IMPORTANT - When it prints this label you must press the feed key and see the message OUT OF DUMP. Your printer will now be calibrated. Check this by hitting the feed key a few times and printer will feed one label each time feed is hit.
If its a TLP2844z.
Load media. Turn printer on and wait for green light (Approx 1 minute)
Press feed key and keep it pressed until green light blinks once, then twice, now release feed key.
