Check the size of the label in your codes or driver.
The length must be correct or else you cannot use it correctly.
You must may be recallibrate the sensors

How do I stop printer from skipping every other label while printing


It sounds like the label length is incorrectly specified either in your software or printers parameter settings - when this happens the printers label sensor is aware that it has over-run a label & automatically proceeds to the next gap / label start.

Depending on the software you are using, it's also possible that a label field extends beyond the boundary of the label (this could be empty space & not necessarily have any content).

Also check that the sensor (usually behind the head) hasn't been adjusted by mistake.

If all else fails, check that you label stock has consistent, readable gaps, you can check the output of the label sensor via the printer menu while manually pulling labels through.

No gap detected


This could be caused by a couple of issues:
  • Dirty sensor (use compressed air and blow out printer)
  • Wrong media (using labels with black bars obscuring the gap and making it non-readable by sensor)
  • Wrong label format for size of labels used (make sure label size matches the template size)

Lable feed not working


- check that i the driver taht you have selected detection transmissive.
- Check in the diag menu >sensor adjustement that there is 2 v difference bewteen the backing and when you are on a label if not the case place the backing under the sensor and press feed 5 seconds (you should have transmiise 4,2 V approx. Check that when you put a label the voltage drops to 0 or is down by 2 volts.

Gap not detected


GAP NOT DETECTED error in displayProduct: T5000rSymptom

GAP NOT DETECTED error in display.
Possible Cause

Dirty media sensors, wrong label length
Recommend Solution

Clean the upper and lower media sensors by spraying them with dry air. This should bedone every time the media (label stock) is changed.

Before running the Auto-Calibrate operation, check the QUICK SETUP or MEDIA CONTROL menu for the 'Label Length' parameter. It should be set to the length of the label, not counting the gap.

Check that the sensor type has been set in CALIBRATE CTRL menu to match the media and ribbon.
"Gap" Select when using media with a liner space between die-cut labels or when using tag stock with notches or holes as label length indicators.
"Mark" Select when using media that has horizontal black marks located on the underside of the label liner or tag stock.
"Advanced Gap" Select when media is gapped but also has a dark background.
This sensor arrangement looks through the ribbon, and will not work if ribbon is too dark.
"Advanced Notch" Select when media has a notch that is placed in a dark line on the back of the stock.

Check the position of the media sensor. It should pass through the center of gaps or marks or notches, but not through pre-printed areas if possible.

Run Auto-Calibrate in CALIBRATE CTRL menu, which sets Gap and Paper Out Thresholds

I get 2 labels(1 with data and 1 blank)for every label printed


THE LABEL SENSOR IS NOT SENSING THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT LABEL

Clean the photo eye that senses the label gap with a q tip and alchol

Open side door release print head and remove label stock you will see small photo eye clean

put printer in manual mode( switch 1 on to and 1 on botom on

turn printer on it should advance one label and hit skip it should advance another

put back in computer mode

should work now if it still skips check yur label desigh=n software and label mode (continuous or sense label)


Best of luck to you

Cant print on butterfly label with Zebra TLP 2844 printer


This is a problem of label sensing.

You are probably using the Gap sensor on the 2844, unfortunately the shape of the butterfly labels means you are sensing the wide gap between the labels in the centre, so it will not print anything in the apparent gap area on both ends of the label.

What your label or system supplier should have done is supplied you with the same labels but with a 3mm wide black mark on the underside of the label backing paper, centred between the labels. You can then change the printer sensor setting in the driver to Black Mark. You will then be able to print anywhere between the black marks.

The label sensor is not detecting the gap between the labels.

Make sure the labels are loaded all the way to the left (as viewed fron the front) and make sure the label guide (near the back of the printer) is set to keep the labels from wandering away fromt he sensor.

There is a pair of infrared emiter and detector located above and below the label path. As label pass between, these measure the leading and trailing edges of each label.

If you haven't already done so, calibrate the printer, by using the "Online", "Calibrate", "Online" buttons. If the "Feed" button doesn't feed just one label, you'll need to adjust the label gap sensors. This can be a bit trick if your labels are very narrow.

There should be a small pcb on a shaft under the label path. Note its current location, then slide it left or right to get a better signal, and try the feed button again. On my Zebras, the sensor is not in the middle of the PCB. Look for a small metal "can" on the PCB and center that.

The upper sensor is more difficult to adjust, but if you manage to spot a very small PCB above the labels, it will be easier to line these up.

Zebra 105SL label issues


I am surprised that you are using that sequence of buttons to solve this problem. I am pretty sure that they want you to go into the "Media Sensor Calibration" setup in the config menu. It is a bit more complicated than what you have described. I also believe that the size of the gap on two of your labels might be out of tolerance (they are usually 1/8" gaps between the labels). The black marks are a problem for the transmissive sensors. You may need to move the transmissive media gap sensor (remember it has two parts: upper and lower). I would usually setup mine for a place beyond the black mark so that you are looking at just the white paper.

To start out:
1. Load the backing of a 6" strip of media (no label attached).
2. Remove a ribbon (if you usually use one).
3. Close the printhead.
4. Press SETUP/EXIT and then NEXT/SAVE until "Media and Ribbon Calibrate" appears.
5. Press "+" to start the calibration procedure. You should see the "Load Backing" in the LCD Display. You already have the backing loaded so continue to the next step.
6. Press "+" to answer the message and the next screen should say, "Remove Ribbon". You have also removed the ribbon.
7. Press the "+" to continue. You should see the screen say, "Calibrating Please Wait". After the sensors are setup by the machine a new screen should appear, "Reload All".
8. Open the printhead, and move the labels until they are loaded correctly to print. Smooth out the ribbon and load it correctly.
9. Withe media and ribbon now loaded, press "+" to continue and the machine should say, "Media and Ribbon Calibrate".
10. Press the Setup/Exit button once. It should say, "Save Changes Permanent". Press Next/Save to finish the process.
11. Do a normal calibration of your stock and print a label.

You are done. The machine will run for the labels you have setup the sensors for. Unfortunately, you must do this for each of the media types. To automate this, you could run a Configuration listing, capture the settings you just created for each type of label. Take these to a programmer to have them send the setup to the machine before the job. This is beyond the scope of this type support to really help you.

Printing Round Labels


the issue sounds inpart to be related the set lable length, the printer thinks that the data will not fit on the label and gives the error. also note that the gap sensor is not in the center so the printer will not and can not autodetect the media correctly. you need to tweak the label setup. you could trick the printer by centering the labels over the gap sensor or if you do a autocalibating use the lable size it give you which would be much smaller then 17mm
