Zebra LP2844 print is wrapping horizontally

Zebra LP2844 printing messed up labels. It will print some of the label fine but the barcode and sometimes other parts of the label are wrapping horizontally. The data starts in the middle and goes to the right edge and then finishes on the left. It doesn't do it every time. just occasionally. We can reprint the label and move on but lately is will do it 3 or 4 times in a row.

I have been running in to the same problems as yourself, I have been using the Zebra 2844 printer to print barcode labels and found the same problems. In the end I decided to buy a new printer. I went for the Printronix which I found to be very user friendly and of good quality.

Hope this helps

Epson standard code is totally different. EPL is Eltron printer language. I've not programmed in it, but there should be a programmers manual out there somewhere.

You have to go to printer drivers on your Operative system, then open printer properties, general tab, you will be able to check the horizontal/vertical setting of the label there.

WordPerfect prints a blank label after each request


I would think you are printing using a printer driver for the LP2844, not using the lexmark driver. Depending on whose Zebra driver you're using, one setting to check would be to make sure the web sensor is being used for type of media sensor. The names for this setting vary but can usually be found in the printing preferences tab.

Hope this helps a little.....

This sounds like the Density setting is set to light. The selection is 1-15 I think. In the windows driver look at the advanced settings and you should find Density is one variable. set it to about 11 and see what happens.

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.

Only every fourth label Prints


We've been having problems with ours. Make sure that the properties are correctly set, landscape, portrait, 180' rotation, label size, on the printer properties. Then check again through whatever package you are using 'printer properties' and try a print. You may have to re-enter properties each time you print.
