Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer
My boss just got us a used Zebra TLP 2844-Z printer. After (finally) hooking it up to my computer and getting it to print at all, I'm finding that the right quarter or so of any label I print doesn't show up. It starts fading at about the halfway mark, right in the middle, and fades from the halfway point to about the 3/4 mark where no ink is on the page at all.
Does it need to be cleaned (and if so, how?) or is there some other problem that is fixable?
Above (calibration) solution would work on a TLP2844 not a TLP2844-Z.
Reset Z model by loading media, Turn printer on and get a green light (Ready).
Then hold down feed button and wait for flashing led sequence.
Release button after 4 flashes (Performs reset)
1 flash - prints config
2 flashes - performs calibration.
There is no mechanical adjustment of the printhead on desktop models. Try cleaning the printhead with isoproply alcohol and a cotton bud.
