TLP 2824 Sebra

My printer starts printing ok, but after few label, the barcode being printed starts moving to the right. It is not the printer, because Y just bought a new one and replaced it. New printer is doing the same. Maybe somewhere in the configuration may be a commnad that makes the image shift to the right?

Re: TLP 2824 Sebra

Is the printer an EPL or ZPL model? i will need to see a hex dump of what you are sending to the printer to pin point the error but it sounds like a label layout issue.
is the barcode content the same on each label? if the barcode content is changing the barcode will grow and move to the right.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels

Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

Just one of the double tags is printed on

I assume by double tags you mean 2 labels across the roll.
You need to tell your software that the roll is 2 across.
If using the software that comes with the printer, Zebra designer.
Set your label width to twice the single label and copy the barcode so that you have 2 across the label, then print

Zdesigner driver, click on properties, click printing preferences, tick the box "rotate 180%" Click apply & ok.

Don't shoot it, they're too hard to cook.

Make sure your program is set for the label size you're using. Also, there is a photo eye under the paper path that picks up the labels. It will, in time come out of adjustment. It can be cleaned with a swab and alcohol.
