Try disconnecting printer from computer, power off and killing any print jobs in the print queue.
Then check that the printer powers on whilst un-connected to the PC, if light stays green, then the problem is related to PC interface. If the light goes red, then it's a hardware fault, maybe remove and replace cartridge, check no paper is jammed and try again.

This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.
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.
