...hello...please check the settings of your printer...sometimes, this problem happens when the printer have encountered a problem while printing...(example: while printing, the ribbon itself stick to the card)....i suggest the best thing to do is to contact your supplier, because sometimes some technical (internal parts) were dislocated or damaged...but, try this first, just always remove the ribbon and place it again, and make a multiple test prints...it works, i've encountered this problem before...

Hi
This error means that your printer machine is not working correctly so I would suggest you to go to the vendor.

My Zebra ZDesigner LP2844 feeds a blank label after printing a label. How do I make it stop doing that?


Define your label size correctly. Measure your LABEL exactly, do not include the backing paper or the gap. Calibrate the printer. HOW?
Power off printer. Press and hold the green feed button down and power printer on. Count one, two and release green button. The printer will calibrate and move labels and then print some stuff on the label. Wait until it has comletely stopped. wait another few seconds and the press the feed key once. The printer will print "out of dump". You should now be ready to print again.

You need to make sure the printer is calibrated correctly. If you press the feed key, does one label come out and stop at the gap? Do the labels have a black mark on the back of the liner? This would tell us if the printer is set correctly. (Mark or gap). We need to make sure the labels are loaded correctly and the printer is set correctly. Then we move to driver and software settings. I have 10 years experience working for Zebra, so I will get you the resolution once we determine the current setup.

I have a blank line across all the cards


If the line is across the card from end to end on the long side in the same spot every time, then try cleaning the printhead. If it is still there then you most likely need a new printhead.

Ribbon Breakage


You can try to lower printhead setting values (color and black), if not resolved then try another ribbon, old ones trend to fail this way.

Printing solid black across the label.


Sounds like a defective printhead.

Reinstall the old one to see if the problem remains or not.
