I have the same problem too. I opened up the printer to see that the small drive gear was broken. I had to send the printer out for repair

I had the same problem. I opened up the unit and found that the small drive gear had lifted up on the shaft and was no longer engaging the other gear. I could have probably noticed this from the battery compartment. I pushed it back down and now the unit works.

CAUSE: my guess would be a stripped gear or a lack of prssure on the "pinch wheel" which would cause a loss of traction on the paper feeder.

SOLUTION: 1- change the stripped gear (if it's stripped)
2- add a layer of adhesive tape on the loose pinch wheel (if it's loose)

both solutions require to open case (to access loose wheel or stripped gear). To determin what the probleme is, try to run a print and try to move or pull gently on the lable ribon while in function. Two possible outcomes are that the gear will only "hook" in some areas if it's stripped. If it's loose the paper will only move while pulling on it.

IT WONT PRINT ANYTHING ALL OF A SUDDEN?


Your manual for the label printer should show you how to print a test label using controls on the front panel. Will it print such a label for you? If so, you more likely have a communication problem between your label printer and your computer(s). You should also be able to push a button to get a blank label to advance and come out of the machine. If you can't get a test label or get it to advance a label the problem is more likely with the printer itself. Make sure your paper sensor inside the machine is not clogged with paper fuzz, etc. Beyond checking your paper and ribbon paths, if you find nothing, you may need to call for a tech to see what is broken. Turning the printer off and back on again sometimes helps.

What in the world!! I have the Smart Label Printer 450, it is not advancing the label, and the power button is flashing. It will not print a label at all at this point, and when it will end up printing a...


Unfortunately, this is usually an indication that the label roll in the printer are too old. This action is by design, compatible labels should have a black rectangle on the reverse side and the Smart Label printer uses the black rectangle to orient the label. This means your Smart Label doesn't think its wasting labels, it's just trying to run through what it considers to be unsuitable labels as fast as it can. If you're only printing one label at a time you can recover some labels by correctly the label's line up after each label you print but there's nothing you can do so that your printer will properly advance its current labels.

Remove the current roll, open a new boxed label roll, remove a sealed roll, cut open the sealed plastic, remove fresh label roll and load it in your Label Printer. Power the label printer back on and press the label advance button, it should correctly line up.

TLP2848Z blinking red, will not print


1: Is it a TLP2844 or a TLP2844Z.

Operationally they are completely different printers. TLP2844 uses ELP (Eltron Programming Language. but TLP2844Z uses ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). You need to calibrate the printer to the labels.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844. Load media. Connect power.
Hold down feed key, power on, count one, two, release feed key. The printer will go through a calibtation routine and print config label. IMPORTANT - When it prints this label you must press the feed key and see the message OUT OF DUMP. Your printer will now be calibrated. Check this by hitting the feed key a few times and printer will feed one label each time feed is hit.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844z.

Load media. Turn printer on and wait for green light (Approx 1 minute)
Press feed key and keep it pressed until green light blinks once, then twice, now release feed key.

Label not advancing to tear-off perforation


Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.

It sounds like it needs to be re gapped. Try this:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to

Advances ticket too far after printing.


your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch
