Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer
EVERY TIME I PRINT A SHIPPING LABEL FROM MY LP2844
TWO LABELS COME OUT BEFORE THE MACHINE STOPS.
IT PRINTS ONLY ON THE 1ST LABEL.
BUT THEN I HAVE TO GET UP AND REWIND THE LABELS BACK ONE
SO AS NOT TO LOSE THAT LABEL
I HAVE TRIED TO RESOLVE THIS IN ALMOST EVERY WAY I CAN THINK OF, FROM RECONFIGURING THE PRINTER TO TRYING DIFFERENT LABEL LAYOUTS
Your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly
2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing
it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
