    does this happen with every computer or only yours? or don't you have a second computer to try?did you try to reinstall the printer driver? if not, this could help.
    1. plug off the printer and deinstall the driver
    2. restart your computer
    3. install the printer driver (use the newest version)

Zebra lp 2844 intermittent power problem. Green light on & prints fine for a couple of hours then light goes off & stays off. Unplug & disconnect etc - nothing works. Then it decides to come on...

Try changing the power supply. If this does not do it, then the mail logic board could be bad and you will need to have it repaired or replaced.

We have a LP2844 printer that prints multiple blank labels sporadically. How do we stop it?

Make sure the label size is set correctly and the printer is calibrated. If this doesn't work download drivers from Nice Lable or Seagul Scientific websites to suit you Printer, these are more adjustable than the original Zebra drivers and handle small labels better.

I am printing labels from a microsoft rms to a zebra printer and it prints the code vs the item description and price. is this printer not compatiable with the zebra?

your in line mode instead of page mode. turn the printer off and hold the feed button down and turn on. the light will turn red then release. it turns green then push and hold then release when it turns amber. you have to be fast, alot of users take several tries to get it right.
