SOURCE: Trying to setup a Zebra TLP 2844-Z on serial port

Two possibilities are the port configuration and the type of serial cable.

The printer has a feature that will try to match itself to the PC's configuration. Press and hold the feed button until the green status led flashes three times. While the led flashes send a ZPL format to the printer (hopefully you can do this through Design Pro by trying to adjust the printer or print labels, but the labels will not print). When the printer and PC are synchonized, the led changes to solid green.

If you can synchonize but still can't print, the problem might be the serial cable; not all serial cables will work. You should use a full null model cable (all pins connected except 1 and 8).

SOURCE: USB PORT FOR ZEBRA Z4M

It will not work with any drivers if you do not have a parallel port. You can get a pci card that has parallel port on it for use with the zebra z4m.
below is a link for the card that cost only $9.99

SOURCE: How Send EPL2 commands to USB

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.

Unable to print Zebra labels on a Zebra 105 SL printer. Sending the label from an I-Series computer through the EntendNet 100x print server to the Zebra printer. Does ExtendNet 100x support Zebra ZPL2...


A print server should just be a 'through-put' device, and the codes should go fine. ZPL-ZPL2 codes are subequently sent as comms to the printer port. Are you using seria; or parallel input to printer?
Yo can capture the codes to a file, and review if they are correct. The file would have to be viewed in a hex editor.(write to a file through the driver)
I routinely use different mfg. of print servers for thispurpose if the printer does not have an internal ethernet port. The only problem I have run into is a problem in network where a slow download is enountered.

My Zebra 105SL printer is printing very slow. How do I upload my Caret file to this printer?


Caret file? Do you mean zpl, the actual label to be printed? If so you can access that from the web interface, just point your browser to the printers ip and follow the menu's. If it's not on a network you can use a command prompt the "type" the message to the com port. Just create a text file with the zpl and save it, then in a command prompt browse to the directory that contains the zpl and issue the command "type zpl.txt > com1" or whatever com it's on.

Printer problem


your problem may be in the serial /usb adaptor that you are using
any reason why you cannot connect the usb cable from the printer directly to a usb port on the computer
like any other printer

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.
