Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

My printer makes a loud noise when printing a line across a label (left to right) and now most of the time it completely stops at that line and binds up the printer. It's like it is welding itself to the label at the line that goes across the label now. Any suggestions to what I need to replace or fix?

10 years and first problem to repair. When you turn on and select DVD or any other selection a very loud cracking noise comes through right speaker only. So loud (with volume tuned off too) that I fear...


I think your receiver is damaged.

Try this.

Mark the speaker wires on the back of the receiver. label the speaker connected to the left channel "Left" and the speaker connected the the right channel "Right"

Also pay attention to the polarity (positive an negative) making some type of marking on your speaker wire so you can reconnect them correctly.

Disconnect both left and right speakers.

Connect the speaker wire that is labeled "Right" to the receiver's left speaker connections only then turn your receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back, this speaker is damaged. I am guessing that the speaker is fine.

Now connect the speaker that was labeled "Left" to the receiver's right speaker connections and turn the receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back like it did before but now playing through the "good" speaker there is a problem with your receiver.

If so, your receiver is 10 years old. Isn't it time for an upgrade? Try ebay for good used equipment deals.

Noise while printing - Diagnosis Pt 1


<p>Unexpected noise (such as clicking, thumping, or grinding) from an branded device are heard during printer operation.<br /> <br /> <span><b>NOTE: </b></span><br /> Noises can be caused by a number of things, some of which may not be addressed in this document. This document deals strictly with the isolation and potential resolution of known noises through troubleshooting.<br /> <p>The following table describes some of the noises to be expected in a printer functioning normally:<br /> <span>Noise occurs:</span> <br /> <span>Additional information:</span> <br /> During power-up<br /> When the printer periodically makes humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/left side of the printer, the printer is actually cleaning the ink cartridges. This is a normal operation for the printer. This sequence may happen in the following conditions:<br /><br /><br /> <ul> <li> <p>Before and/or after printing<br /> <li> <p>During power on <br /> <li> <p>After the printer has been on standby/idle for some time<br /> <li> <p>After replacing a cartridge<br /> <li> <p>In the middle of a long print job (such as printing many photos)<br /></li></ul> During printing*<br /> <ul> <li> <p>Paper pickup: There will be some noise during paper pickup due to the movement of rollers and gears.<br /> <li> <p>While printing: The unit has printed a few lines or the paper has been fed into the printing area. There will be some noise during printing due to the movement of rollers, gears, carriage and paper (paper feed and ejection).<br /></li></ul> During paper ejection*<br /> At the end of the print job, there is a louder clicking noise as the paper is being "pushed off" to the output tray.<br /> During copying/scanning<br /> The scanner may make pulsing and dragging noises as it scans portions of the document or it may make a long rolling sound if it is doing a continuous scan. After scanning, it will make a long dragging noise as the scanner is brought back to the home position (could be on the left or right side).<br /> Post-printing with no additional jobs in the queue<br /> Post-completion of a print job and without another job in queue: At the end of a print job, there will be a noise on the left/right side of the printer as the pens are being capped. The printer may try to do this a couple of times, which is normal.<br /> Between print jobs<br /> The printer may make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/ left side of the printer during the cleaning of the ink cartridges.<br /> In the accessories<br /> There may be some noise associated with accessories (ADF, duplexer, etc.) during the initial positioning and during normal operation.<br />

Reset printer sensor threshold setting.

Turn on printer whilst holding down line key untill printer beeps.

Use feed key to step to Gap in display.
Load label plus backing under sensor and not volts reading.
remove labels and place backing only under sensor and note volts reading.
use following formula
High reading + Low reading / 0.5 = Value to use
e.g 2.8 + 1.4 / 0.5 = 2.1.

use result to change value of input using line key once set press feed key to set.

To change label start position use the pitch menu.

I have a Konica Minolta C451 bizhub printer and I am trying to make a double sided copy brochure from my printer. The problem is that it prints the 2nd side upside down and I don't know what to do to get...


When selecting duplex printing on the print setup screen change the box labeled binding position from auto, to top binding. If it already set to top then change it to left. This is usually the setting that will cause the duplex pages to print properly when duplexing on the C451. If it does not work you can try left or right binding but top binding I am sure will fix this for you. I have run print jobs in the last week or so where I had to make the same change to my C450.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My zebra only prints the left half? I have tried calibrating, it does nothing. Can you help me out? Thanks


One of two situations exists:
1. If the printing stops with clear stopping edge, then the PRINT WIDTH setting has been changed from the default full width setting of 104mm.
Best way to check this is to take your tallest and widest label and print out a configuration label. This is done by turning off the priner, pressing the CANCEL key and holding while turning on the printer. Release the button when the calibrate led turns off. A config label will print and you can check the setting for PRINT WIDTH.

2. If the printing stops by fading away to the right side, then that is caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. There is more pressure on the left side than the right side. There are two toggles the press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted on each by turning the knob on top. Readjust the right side until printing returns across the label.

Hope that helps !

The printer makes a noise that sounds like a machine gun as soon as it starts to print, but just at that time and each time it prints. The noise does not continue, but stops once the printer starts...


It sounds like the cleaning sled is binding. Likely due to ink sludge build up in the waste station. Look into the printer, on the right side, where the cartridge rest when not in use. If this area looks very inky your printer may need servicing.

Loud ratchet noise


Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

Printer is not working.


There are several things in the front that could be making that noise.The transfer roller,paper guide/top ublique roller and front obligue roller which is on the left side front. It is hard to say. I guess the printer is printing OK. If not what is the printer doing? Do you get any paper jams? Printing light? Can you rub the print off the paper? Any labels stuck? Please answer questions so I can help you. My guess is a roller problem. Which one is hard to say since I can't hear the printer myself.

Loud clicking noise


This is one of the known issues with the HL-5240. This will require a replacement paper tray. Definately the problem if it is more of a clack than a click.
