I found that the door sensor is faulty, and by holding the door tightly closed, the printer will print. Had sent one back for repair, and also used long strap to hold it tight and it seemed to work.

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Zebra LP 2844 is stalling out on every print.


Maybe the printer is not getting a good calibration on the label. If the status LED is a steady RED when trying to print, then the printer thinks its out of labels. A manual calibrationi could solve that.

1. Turn the printer off
2. press and hold down the FEED key while turning on the printer.
3. keep pressing the key until the status light flashes once, then let go
4. The printer will auto-calibrate for the size of label and then should be ready to use.

Press FEED once after its done and 1 label should feed.

Hope that helps !

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page


possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.

TLP 2844 skips 15-16 labels then prints intended label


It sounds like they may need to set their "Q" values for the labels they are using.   If that isn't it, we may need more info - are they using Zebra brand or custom labels?  
To start with, I would ask them to try adding these "Q" value commands: q456 Q152,24
If that doesn't work, then maybe they can provide the other info mentioned above so we can understand the problem better.

Zebra LP 2844 prints blanks


If the printer is printing nothing but blanks, try another roll of labels.

If the printer is printing blanks in between labels, it probably needs to be gap sensed. You can do this by:
1. turn the printer off.
2. hold the feed button down and then power the printer back on while still holding the feed button down.
3. release the feed button when the light flashes.
4. the printer will then regap itself
5. when the regapping is done, press the feed button once. It will print on the label that it is 'out of dump'
6. the printer should then be ready to go.
