Question about Zebra Eltron Orion LP2443 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Printer problem I'm trying to install a zebra LP2443 printer using the add printer wizard and I keep getting "unable to install printer. Operation could not be completed". The print spooler service is up and running. The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is up and running. I have tried deleting the printupg.pnf, I actually deleted all .pnf files, that did not help. I'm using the newest driver from the zebra web site. The operating systems is windows 2000. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Heather Connecten my zebra/eltron orion 2443 with serial cable to usb cable and installed drivers. Chose usb virtual ports, all of m, no respons. Tried every port but it does not communicate. Any idea what else i could try? Reinstalled, rebooted, deleted, different port etc, tried it all.

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

Zebradesigner for xml ''error in processing zpf and lvr files''

Somehow, the correct printer driver is not installed when setting up Zebra Designer for XML.

To fix it, clck on "Start->All Programs->Zebra Designer for XML->Add Printer".

A wizard opens, select "Next" and choose the printer you are designing labels for. Click on "Next".

Select "Update existing printer driver(s)". The driver gets updated and voilá!, now you can export your label desgins.
