The printer is set to the wrong mode, do a reset on the printer to default settings, or factory reset, but you could have installed the wrong drivers for your printer from the install disk you got if it was working before you installed them, so uninstall and let your computer automatically install standard drivers for it or if you need to install the exact drivers, do just that from the install disk, make sure you know exactly the model of your printer

Whats the error message and can you try the printer directly connected into your computer?

Also check what your computer says in the printer status -> start -> printers and faxes -> your printer.

I have installed (hardware + driver) a stripe s600 via COM1 on my desktop; how can i get a test page? i does not work from the test page @ printer properties.


You should be able to print a test page from Windows.
First make sure the device itself can print by holding down CANCEL while you power it up. Release the button when the CALIBRATE light goes off. This should print out a config label.

Here's the manual: http://tinyurl.com/yb2rpd4

I would check all the connections, download the latest drivers from the Zebra website (not the ones on the disc) and reinstall.

Hope this is helpful for you!
If so, please leave a rating!

Pages come out but not printing


Recommendation: Go the the manufacture's website and download the device driver and reinstall the printer. Make sure that the printer is on and connected to the computer before you run the download. Also when finishing installing the printer, print a test page.

Printer port configuration and Zebra trouble


When you connect a printer to your pc the operating system adds a virtual port. Your pc will typically have 3 physical usb ports but can have as many virtual ports as you have devices to connect to it.

1: Ensure that your printer has media loaded and is powered up and ready to print. Connect the USB cable. You should get a message on pc screen saying device (printer) found.

Open printer driver ( double click on the zebra printer icon - Start/control panel/printers & Faxes/) Click print test page. If it doesnt print you will see a printer icon with a red question mark.on your toolbar, double click on this. This will bring up a small window showing status of the print job, Click printer/properties/ports. Select the next free usb port and click apply. Drag the print status window so that you can see the message in the status window change from Error print to error Restarting. repeat trying each of your usb ports until printer works. start with the higheat usb with highest number and work your way down.

Zebra S600, Recieves data, but does not print


Go into the printer driver and select print a test page, does it print out?
If so then try printing from your label software, it should work, if not then it is your software that is at fault.
If the test page does not print out then check all the settings in the print driver, so they are the same as the physical label.
If non of this helps then go to www.lancerlabels.co.uk and do a live chat to Michael.

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.

Doesn't pront the whole picture


Will it print it's own status page? or a page of just basic text? Are you printing a picture? You may need more than 30+ Megabytes of free disk space for the print job to spool.
0) Verify your Hard Disk has enough free space.
1) turn printer off for 1-2 min. Turn back on and try again.
2) Reboot the computer and try again.
3) Shutdown all other programs and try printing again.
4) Try printing from another program. (ie. while reading this, click print ;-) )
5) unplug printer from wall and computer; remove driver; reinstall from original disk.
6) Try printer on a different computer

If this does not help; take two aspirin and call back !

Good luck!
