How can i send an ascii file to a network shared Datamax Prodigy Plus printer? It is not printing via send file, windows driver send command to printer works. Thanks for any help!


copy file.txt lpt1 is the command to copy the txt file to the printer, but it must be correctly formatted for the Datamax. I don't know Datamax's programming language, but at first glance that file looks like ZPL to me. If it is ZPL the Datamax can't print it.

Failed to load the print preview or failed to print.


You need to run the Wasp software under an Administrative account or Right click the program Icon and select run as administrator (only need to do this 1 time, not over and over again). Once the program loads, set the label printer again by clicking file at the top left and selecting Setup Label Printer. Select your label printer. Now try printing the labels again.

I am trying to install a lp 2824 plus zebra label printer and i need to know whether to select epl or zpl?


You should probably select ZPL, but that depends on which program you will use together with the printer.

Good day, We are currently using a Zebra 2746E, that needs to be replaced, the problem is we have a huge amount of labels designed in Create A Label, is there a way to use a new Zebra S4M with the...


the language from your printers is EPL and the zebra S4m come from factory with ZPL language program, you need to install diferent firmware to the printer,

"...This firmware release includes all features of the previous V4.49 release. It is for use with

the following EPL printer models:

Special Firmware Version Size E53.17.3 3 MB

download the firmware, go to the driver and "send file" and send the file *.zpl to the printer.

My Zebra 105SL printer is printing very slow. How do I upload my Caret file to this printer?


Caret file? Do you mean zpl, the actual label to be printed? If so you can access that from the web interface, just point your browser to the printers ip and follow the menu's. If it's not on a network you can use a command prompt the "type" the message to the com port. Just create a text file with the zpl and save it, then in a command prompt browse to the directory that contains the zpl and issue the command "type zpl.txt > com1" or whatever com it's on.

I have Thermal Zebra Printer TLP2824, I have installed it and


The printer has firmware TLP2844-Z Zebra. This printer uses ZPL commands and not epl. ZebraDesigner can print to a file and have a format command.

Zebra printers & MS Word


HI Les1810,

You should be printing faster with Zebra fonts.
Which driver are you using? Version?
I strongly recommend the Zebra Designer V1.3.08, available at Zebra.com

To isolate the problem, capture the output to a file.
Define a local port as C:\output.txt and set that as the port in driver properties.
Now print your document. The printer commands will be in C:\output.txt.

Send c:\output.txt directly to your printer.
For LPT1, use the DOS copy command to send the file. (Copy C:\output.txt LPT1)
For serial connections, use Hyperterm to send the file.
For network connections, use ftp.
No easy USB method is readily available.

Does this print faster than printing the original document from Word through the driver?
If yes, then update your driver.
If no, debug your communication to the printer (LPT1, serial, network, etc.)

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label length problem


how are you sending the data to the printer and what type of media are you using? you can set the page hight via the ZPL command ^LL ,the value you send with ^LL is in dot, so if I wanted to set the label hight to 10cm I would send ^LL800. Or if you are printing via a windows driver configure the printer to continues media.

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.
