lets start with the basics.
Do a calibration of the label to the printer : -
1/ Turn off the power
2/Press and hold the feed key
3/ Turn on power and wait for the green feed light to flash twice.
4/ Release the feed key
5/ The printer should feed and print the configuration.
Now press the feed key and the label should feed and stop at the gap.
If this does not work , then let me know via this page.or contact me at the link below
hi, - Turn off the printer. - Remove the labels roll and then load it again. - Press and hold the green[feed] button and switch on the printer. - Release the button after it flashes red. - The printer will run a self test. - Turn it off and then on again. - Now print.
you need to calibrate. hold the feed button down intill it flashes 4 times in a row and the quickly let go. it will feed some labels to calibrate and should stop at the tear off. you also have to set label size in the driver to keep from losing calibration.
A constant red light usually means the printer is out of ribbon or labels. It may just not recognize the size of the label so try a manual calibration to set the size.
1. turn the printer off
2. press and hold down the FEED button while turning on the printer
3. Keep holding down on FEED until the led flashed once, then let go
4. The printer will do an auto-calibration on the label.
When it's done, pressing FEED should advance 1 label. It's then ready to go.
This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.
Operationally they are completely different printers. TLP2844 uses ELP (Eltron Programming Language. but TLP2844Z uses ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). You need to calibrate the printer to the labels.
Calibration: If its a TLP2844. Load media. Connect power. Hold down feed key, power on, count one, two, release feed key. The printer will go through a calibtation routine and print config label. IMPORTANT - When it prints this label you must press the feed key and see the message OUT OF DUMP. Your printer will now be calibrated. Check this by hitting the feed key a few times and printer will feed one label each time feed is hit.
Calibration: If its a TLP2844z.
Load media. Turn printer on and wait for green light (Approx 1 minute) Press feed key and keep it pressed until green light blinks once, then twice, now release feed key.
Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels: 1. Make sure that printer power is off. 2. Press and hold the feed button. 3. Turn printer power on. 4. When the status light blinks, release the feed button. 5. The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic dump mode. 6. To begin normal operation, tap the feed button. The printer prints "out of DUMP" and advances a label.
Bask11, sounds like the printer needs to regap itself. Turn the printer off, hold the feed button down and while holding the feed button, turn the printer back on. As soon as it flashes, let go. It will regap itself. When it stops moving, press the feed button once and there should be a priinted line that says 'out of dump'. The printer should be ready to go then.
