Use the Zebra ZUD driver. Latest version V5.5.7.25 (Download from Zebra website). When driver is installed, go to printer & Faxes folder and double-click on the installed printer icon.

Click Printer/properties/printer/advanced (+)/tools (Click on tools) This opens a text box. Type commands in here and send directly to printer. E.G type U click send and it will print a config sheet.

This definately works.

How can i send an ascii file to a network shared Datamax Prodigy Plus printer? It is not printing via send file, windows driver send command to printer works. Thanks for any help!


copy file.txt lpt1 is the command to copy the txt file to the printer, but it must be correctly formatted for the Datamax. I don't know Datamax's programming language, but at first glance that file looks like ZPL to me. If it is ZPL the Datamax can't print it.

How do I restore factory settings to a zebra barcode printer LP-2844-Z


The ^default command has been added to the EPL2 commands, starting in firmware version 4.39. This command will set the printer back to factory settings as long as the printer is in page mode. The command is not supported in line mode at this time. The command is case sensitive.
Syntax: ^default.
You can send the command to the printer via the parallel or serial port.
Parallel:
Open command prompt (DOS prompt) See windows instructions for details.
At the prompt type:
ECHO ^default>LPT1 <enter>
Serial:
Assuming standard communications on the printer of Baud 9600, No parity, 8 bits, 1 stop bit and use of COM 1:
At the prompt type:
Mode Com1:9600,n,8,1 <enter>
ECHO ^default>COM1 <enter>

How do I send EPL commands to Zebra TLP2844 printer through USB port?


You can use the driver to send commands to the Printer via any port you have setup to. See Printer Tab and then select Tools, in there you will find a field to send commands.

Zebra printers & MS Word


HI Les1810,

You should be printing faster with Zebra fonts.
Which driver are you using? Version?
I strongly recommend the Zebra Designer V1.3.08, available at Zebra.com

To isolate the problem, capture the output to a file.
Define a local port as C:\output.txt and set that as the port in driver properties.
Now print your document. The printer commands will be in C:\output.txt.

Send c:\output.txt directly to your printer.
For LPT1, use the DOS copy command to send the file. (Copy C:\output.txt LPT1)
For serial connections, use Hyperterm to send the file.
For network connections, use ftp.
No easy USB method is readily available.

Does this print faster than printing the original document from Word through the driver?
If yes, then update your driver.
If no, debug your communication to the printer (LPT1, serial, network, etc.)

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

USB printing through DOS mode


Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.

Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.

First, get the device name:

In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use 127.0.0.1)

Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.

NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y

This captures the print queue to the shared printer.

You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT

Your copy, print and other commands will work.
