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.

My labels do not print clearly, I have a zebra TLP2844


Check the Ribbon type and adjust the darkness levels accordingly, Wax uses less heat and Resin uses more. Another thing to check is if you are using Direct Thermal Labels as this could cause a clarity problem. Also cleaning the Print head with Isopropyl Alcohol each time you change the ribbon will keep the head in good condition.

Hi there! I work with Zebra TLP2844 through


If you are using Bartender, Make sure to use the Seagull Scientific Zebra Driver. The zebra driver works (but not properly) with bartender. Download the driver from Seagull Scientific site. You can also email bartender tech support, their contact details are available from the help screen on the main bartender design screen. I have always found them to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

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 2844 Not printing at all


Antztech,
if the red light is coming on and staying on, it might be a sensor problem. Try pushing on the lid and see if the light goes to green. If it does, it' s the gap sensor. This is how the printer "reads" the labels gaps-the little spaces between the labels. We've solve this in the short term by covering the sensor and manually setting the gap through the programming command prompt,

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.

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.

Printing Round Labels


the issue sounds inpart to be related the set lable length, the printer thinks that the data will not fit on the label and gives the error. also note that the gap sensor is not in the center so the printer will not and can not autodetect the media correctly. you need to tweak the label setup. you could trick the printer by centering the labels over the gap sensor or if you do a autocalibating use the lable size it give you which would be much smaller then 17mm
