I'm not familiar with Zebra, but usually the flashing is a warning indication that the cartridge needs replacing, or that the cartridge is not one made by the manufacturer. Check with Zebra if their cartridges contain a chip which detects a 3td party product.

SOURCE: improper printing of barcodes

recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size

SOURCE: zebra 105se printer is printing out of the label on the wright side

It would be best if we had more information, or a picture.

For instance if you told me as the label is printing it does not print on the label, and it appears shifted to the right or front, then I would say, you need to re-calibrate the printer for that label.

If you were saying that the printer is printing on the right side of the label as you face the printer and watch the label exit the printer, then I would say, that the label size in the software is wrong, or the transfer ribbon is loaded incorrectly, too far to the right as you face the label exit path, OR the labels are loaded too far to the left as you face the label exit path.

Here is a link to a manual that may help as well.

SOURCE: Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Turn off the printer, then hold down the feed button while you turn it on again. After the configuration label prints, turn the printer off and on again,then try to print your labels.

If the barcodes still don't print, make sure they don't extand past the top, bottom or side of the label. If you software allows you to "clear the label cache" or "re-image the enitre label", try that.

SOURCE: how do I clear the memory on a zebra gk420d?

Download the Seagull scientific GK420 ZPL driver. Version 7.16.

Open the driver file, (Double click on printer icon in printer & faxes folder)

Click Printer, properties, tools, action, reset printer.

Play around with the Seagull driver, it is very useful, you can format memory, read files stored in printer memory, see forms, fonts, images etc.

The forms stored in the G series printers are not cleared by the normal methods which one would use on it's predecessor the 2844 models. The G series will maintain the forms stored in its memory even if you download new firmware, or reset it. This is actually a good thing, as it prevents you from accidentally erasing forms stored in the printer.

SOURCE: ZEBRA Z4M PRINT QUE ERROR

I would say the printers buffer has overflowed, try looking around for a Print Buffer to hook up to the printer. The standard Flash is getting very hard to find.

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Want to reset my Zebra 140XiIII back to factory settings?


I resolved the problem by going into the setup program and then exiting and at that point I was prompted to save my changes and one of the options was to load Default settings. Once I chose this I was able to print on the 4X6 labels correctly, before that the configuration was feeding a label and 1/2 and print across two labels.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label


Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

Zebra LP 2844


The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode:
Turn printer power off.
Hold the feed button while turning printer power on.
When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button.
When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button.
When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed.
Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.

This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
