"Fault" , no labels printing

We've turned our printer on/off several times, but every time we attempt to print a label, the fault light turns on, and several blank labels spit out... what can we do?

Zebra LP2844 pulls labels in before printing


Yes, first of all, it is necessary that the labels are pulled backward (other wise you could not print on the upper part of the label). It appears from time to time that it is a problem - generated by the label itself. Try to use a different label (of size and material) to see if the behavior changes ...
Good luck.

On the Zebra it was printing 4x13 labels without a problem. However when I tried to print a 4x6 label it still thought there was 4x13 stock in the printer. I played around with the label format size, even...


I think this is more related to the calibration of the label each time you change the new label size. I use ZM400 and your printer should also have the same setting. Under setting, put the When Head Close setting to Calibration. This will let the calibration perform automatically when ever you load a new label size and close the print head. Well 2 label will be lost every time.

Dear Sir, Madam, We recently installed our Zebra S600 labelprinter together with the Zebra Designer software. But the labelprinter doesn't print out our labels. We've searched the internet and...


It sounds as though it is printing test labels. Switch of and on again to reset.

If no change then try factory reset.

If it is ever necessary to return the printer configuration to factory default values, press the FEED

key and PAUSE Key at the same time while turning the power on. The default values will remain

active until the printer power is turned off. To save the default values in memory, press the MODE

key four times. The Darken, Position, and Calibrate LEDs will cycle on and then off indicating the
values have been saved.

If this does not work then you have a fualty logic board which write off the printer

Using MS Access, I am printing labels to a Zebra 110XiIII printer. The output truncates the label to 2" instead of the 3.5" I have the report page settings saved as. I have been through the setup...


First check printer. Change setting "Print Width" to maximum width, save. Switch off. Hold down pause key while switching on (untill all but power light turns off). the subsequent prints should print across the full width. If this is OK fault is with label format.

If you are using windows printer driver check settings there this can over ride printer settings. If using ZPL the problem is most likely in the label format.

Nothing prints. Anything sent to the printer


Please check the driver to see if the printer is set to Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer. The printer will check for tension on the ribbon if set to TT and the light will go red to alert you to a fault.

Every time I print a label, the label comes out.


Have a look at the way the driver is setup, by sound of it you might have it set for thermal transfer, it needs to be set to direct thermal. Thermal Transfer is for the TLP2844. the next time you print will send the changes to the printer

TLP2848Z blinking red, will not print


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.

Calibration:
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.

Calibration:
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.

Printing not centered


Check the width of the label format.
Normally this printer will center the printing automatically when it receives the instruction to change the coordinates

Will not print on all four lables, and does not print in the same place each time.


for starters you need to calibrate your printer.

Note: If printing in Direct Thermal Mode, default the printer first (4 flashes).

1. Load the labels and ribbon (if used) and close the printer
2. Turn on the printer power.
3. Allow the printer to feed or error out.
4. Press and hold the feed button until the green status LED flashes once, then twice. Release the feed button.
6. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used and then automatically feed until a label is positioned at the printhead.
7. A profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the example in Figure 1) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and the printer is ready for normal operation.
8. Press the feed button. One entire blank label will feed. If this does not happen, try defaulting (Hold the FEED button until it flashes 4 times)

Firmware corrupted? Only prints some random computer text


The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode:
Turn printer power off.
Hold the feed button while turning printer power on.
When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button.
When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button.
When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed.
Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.

This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
