Click start on your computer, go to control panel-printers and faxes folder. Highlight your Zebra printer and select 'printing preferences'. You are looking for a place to turn up the heat settings "Head Settings" or "Heat Settings". These get reset down to the lowest setting when you continually open the cover without turning the printer off first....exposing the printhead to light.

You should first make sure the printhead is clean. If the printhead is dirty and you crank up the darkness, you will blow the printhead elements. Open the printer and from the bottom, you will see the printhead, which has a glass like appearance. There is a green strip from one side of the printhead to the other. Take a que tip with some rubbing alcohol and wipe it clean. I would make sure the printer is turned off before doing so. Just to be safe.

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.....

I am getting a time delay of 30 seconds or more when printing stickers from my Zebra s500 serial printer when printing from a foxpro application.


This is pretty normal, LP2844 Eltron based printers are worse. The problem is the serial port is too slow to take all the instructions the driver is sending. I would printe via the parallel port

ZEBRA LP 2844 PRINTING PROBLEM IN USPS SHIPPING ASSISTANT


Are you sure that the page size is wrong, or are you just guessing because of the way that the label is printing? I would uninstall the driver - delete the printer from printers and faxes and remove the driver from Server Properties (in the file drop down in Printers and Faxes). Go to ups.zebra.com/ctp and get the latest driver - you have to have the UPS version of the driver in order to support pass-through printing. Go into your UPS Ship Asst application and make sure that the generic thermal is not checked.

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page


possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.
