Dmx i4308 skipping every other label


emelish: If is constant the print label and skip label, you have adjust the label size in your software. If the label skip is not constant, then clean the label sensor, position it in better place and perform a quick calibration pressing and hold FEED button by 5-6 seconds and release it. Maybe you can do it once more time. Roberto Martinez

HELLO: PRINTS ONE LABEL


This could have a couple of different causes. Best thing to do is determine if the problem is with the printer or the software. Turn the printer off and back on again. After the power-on self test is done, just press the feed key. Does the printer feed just one label ? If so, then you know the printer has a good calibration on the size of the label. Now print a label. Does it skip one after printing ? If it does, now you know the problem is in the software because the printer is only going to do what it’s told to do. Check all settings in the label software / printer driver to make sure label size is accurate, correct printer driver is being used, etc.

So first check to see if the printer is ok by itself. If it feeds two labels after powering up, then the calibration is needs to be redone. Also make sure the media sensor is positioned over the label. This can cause skipping as well if out of position.

Hope that helps !

Losing half of top line when printing


Label definition in printer driver may need adjustment. Try calibrating printer, printer on solid green light, hold down feed key & release after light blinks 4 times, (blinks once, twice, three times then 4 times) Download the Zebra setup utility and use it to configure printer.

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.

MY TLP2844 SKIPPING LABELS HOW CAN I FIX IT


try feeding just one label the 2 or 3.
if the printer feeds fine, check the format.
there is an unprintable area top and bottom of the label to reflect tolerances on the printer.
I usually like to keep the format 1/8" top and bottom spacing.
If you software, check that you do not have the printing too close to the edge.

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.

TLP 2844 skips over labels


The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.

Zebra TLP 2844 Error Condition


Qusetion, Using USB my TLP2844 detects as a LP2844ps. Weird, huh? Also when I calibrate it the label does not stop at the perferation. When I print half goes on one label and the other half goes on the next label. Someone told me once there was a trick to get it to calibrate correctly. Anyone here know this? When I print a test page, it feed the correct amount of label.

Zebra TLP2844 Prints Centered and Half the Width


create a word template document with the page size the same size as the label. Set the margins to 0 and fill the label up with text. This should make the printer print right the way over the bale.
