Question about Zebra Eltron TLP 2844 Thermal Label Printer

Trying to Print USPS Labels from PayPal on TLP 2844

System:
Windows Vista
TLP Etron 2844 Printer.

I have 4x6" labels and I am trying to print labels from USPS. Through the printer settings, I have set the paper size as 4x6". However when the page prints it is a reduced size and seems to have a border of approximately an inch on all side, such that the actually print space is approximately 4x2.5" Inches.

Also Test Page prints correctly, and so I don't think that it is a page offsetting problem.

Thoughts?

Everytime i turn on my zebra tlp 2844-z it prints 2 blank labels.anyone please help me to solve this problem


Are you using the correct labels?
Direct Thermal Printers use different labels than printers with ribbons.
If you print a label using labels from a ribbon printer in a direct thermal printer they will come out blank.

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.
Any problems with this contact us directly at Lancer labels Ltd

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).

TLP 2844 skips over labels


The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.

Problem printing on Glossy Label [butterfly label] using Zebra TLP 2844 EPL


You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.
