Turn up the darkness setting. Here is a video on how to clean a printer, it isn't the same model but the procedure on the printhead is the same. At about 50 seconds into the video it shows the printhead which is basically the same on the LP2824. http://www.racoindustries.com/thermal-label-printer-cleaning.htm

I use a LP2824 with Quickbooks POS, and every day i will print something and the printer will stop halfway throught the job. The only solution i have found is reinstalling the drivers, then an hour later...


its usually clogging within the printhead, remove the roller and give it a clean, also download fresh drivers incase there is some kind of corruption within the driver you are using, . finally clean the print head by opening the lid and cleaning the upper inside of the lid. (it is black in colour)

All of the sudden my bar codes are not fully printing. Missing some lines on the bottom. Also the numbers are not printing rel clear. Have ran this label before and no problem. Now it is all bar codes.


Try cleaning the printhead, then print the zebra test print. (see user manual) or just print a solid black box 4" wide by 1" long. If you have white vertical lines through it you may need a new printhead.

If print test is good try increasing the heat/darkness setting

Recalibrate the printer and you should be good to go. Do this by turning the printer off, press and hold the button and turn on the power. When the light flases red let go and it will calibrate, at the end it will do a printout. Reboot the printer and your fixed.

Zebra LP2824 not printing


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.
  1. Turn printer off.
  2. Press and hold the feed button down. And switch printer on.
  3. Release the feed button when the LED flashes red.
  4. When the LED flashes green, press down the feed button.
  5. When the LED flashes amber release the feed button.
  6. Try printing now that the printer is back in page mode which is used for print your labels; line mode prints the labels code.
  7. Do this fast or else it wont work if you are slow.

LP2824 Zebra printer software


Try downloading ZebraDesigner Pro here.
It should have a familar MS-Paint type interface. A small learning curve.
