Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer
It have been a week. I tried many different way to make the printer print but It didnt even print the test page. The printer is connected to printer server. My usb port is printing. However, I need to print using parallel port because I have a few printers only have parallel port. Things that I have been tried: 1. Turn on/off, restart printer, restart printer server. 2. Stop/restart spooler 3. Reload/set service print in services.msc to automatic 3. Add parallel port (I dont know how it help when adding parallel port) 4. Net use mapping parallel port to usb port (I dont know if it works) 5. Setting up a PrintServer using LPR or TCP/IP printing on Windows XP (http://kb.linksys.com/Linksys/ukp.aspx?pid=80&vw=1&articleid=4126) So far, none of them help. I got really frustrated. Please help!
If you tell it to print and the item goes into your Que for printing. In that screen click on the printer tab... In the drop down verify that the "Use Printer OffLine" does NOT have a check mark next to it.

Sounds like you put your printer into line mode. Line mode prints code so you can see what is sent to the printer to look for possible mistakes in the code.
To switch from line mode back to page mode.

when you loaded the driver did you select the correct port? many times I get calls where they hooked upto a certain plug in but chose the wrong port parallel needs the lpt1 port and if there are more then one listed it could be a higher number..lpt2...lpt3. goto the driver in printers and faxes and right click the chose properties then the ports tab and pick the port.

When you connect a printer to your pc the operating system adds a virtual port. Your pc will typically have 3 physical usb ports but can have as many virtual ports as you have devices to connect to it.
1: Ensure that your printer has media loaded and is powered up and ready to print. Connect the USB cable. You should get a message on pc screen saying device (printer) found.
Open printer driver ( double click on the zebra printer icon - Start/control panel/printers & Faxes/) Click print test page. If it doesnt print you will see a printer icon with a red question mark.on your toolbar, double click on this. This will bring up a small window showing status of the print job, Click printer/properties/ports. Select the next free usb port and click apply. Drag the print status window so that you can see the message in the status window change from Error print to error Restarting. repeat trying each of your usb ports until printer works. start with the higheat usb with highest number and work your way down.

Forget about using parallel converter. Just use the USB cable it works best anyway.
Easiest way is this.
1: Turn printer on. (Green light. ready to print)
2: DISCONNECT the usb cable from the PC.
3 DELETE the Zebra LP2844 & Zdesigner drivers from the printers & Faxes folder. Just highlight them and hit the delet key. Don't worry Iknow what I'm doing.
4: Plug in your USB cable back into PC.
Just sit back and wait, your PC will automatically detect your printer and re-load your driver software.

If there are no jobs in the print queue, be certain that your USB cable is snug.
If still a problem and there are jobs in the print queue, go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon.
Note: Here's how to delete a printer icon in Windows 7:
1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Disconnect the USB cable.
Restart your computer.
Reconnect the USB to your computer.
Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.
If still a problem, since you have already changed the USB port on your PC, the USB printer cable or the USB/parallel converter is probably faulty.
Also, test the printer by installing on another computer, if available.
Hope this helps.
