Re: zebra lp 2844 thermal printer

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
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.

I need to print labels and bar codes without installing the zebra driver.

This printer supports EPL if it is a true 2844 not a 2844-z. If you want to print to it directly from programming you can to it that way.

did you try to calibrate the printer yet? Procedure is the following:

- switch off printer
- switch on again WHILE pushing green button
- release button after first flashing of led
- printer starts calibration process
- after printer finished calibration press green button again once to feed another label and leave dump mode (important!)
- printer prints "out of dump"

Now try to print from your software again. I hope it helps!

Zebra LP 2844 prints blanks

If the printer is printing nothing but blanks, try another roll of labels.

If the printer is printing blanks in between labels, it probably needs to be gap sensed. You can do this by:
1. turn the printer off.
2. hold the feed button down and then power the printer back on while still holding the feed button down.
3. release the feed button when the light flashes.
4. the printer will then regap itself
5. when the regapping is done, press the feed button once. It will print on the label that it is 'out of dump'
6. the printer should then be ready to go.
