Sounds like an incorrect print driver or a corupted print driver. The driver probably needs to be deleted and then reinstalled. Go to the control panel, and then to add / remove printers. first remove the print driver and then reinstall it. If your printer came with a disk you can use that but sometimes the driver will be updated to fix problems like this so it is best to check online and download the latest version.

If your running this printer off a serial port you may be getting a buffer overrun. I'm guessing that your using X on X off Handshaking so perhaps you could fix the problem by slowing down the baud rate. You need to change this both on the printer and on the PC that's driving it.

You will notice that there may be a slow down in "First Label Out" but it may solve the issue. If that doesn't do it then you might want DTR / DSR handshaking but you may need a different interface cable that support it.

Zebra LP2844 printer prints garbage

Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).

Try calibrating the printer. This can be accomplished through printer driver under 'printing preferences' or the Cognitive Printer Setup Utility.

This error appears when the printer has worked for more than 1 hours continuous, and to protect the printer. Wait a few minutes for printer to cool and continue with your printing.
