Blank labels being fed

My printer will print a few labels fine but then the alignment gets off and will feed out blank labels and then the light turns red. I try to run the Dump by holding the button and turning on the printer, but all it does it feed blank labels. Any help?

Re-calibrate the printer by switching the printer off, press and hold the feed button whilst turning the power on. Release the button when the light flashes red. Once calibrated try again, if no joy then try a different driver

Printer TLP2824 thermal printer prints too many labels. Prints one and then spits two more out(blank).


Clean media sensors. The blank labels are a result of the printer trying to calibrate label length.

Prints lable every 5 labels the rest are blank


Troubleshoot to see if the problem is with the printer or the software. Turn the printer off and back on again for fresh start. After the POST (power on self test) press the FEED key and see if the printer feeds just 1 label. If it does then you know the optic sensor in the printer has a good read on label size. If it feeds more than one, then it needs to be recalibrated for label size.

If it feeds 1 label, then print a format. Now if it prints 1 label and then feeds blank labels, you know the problem is in the label software you're using or in the printer driver. The printer will only do what it's told to do.

At least this way you can narrow the problem down to the printer or the software.

Hope that helps....

The printer adds an extra line space at the end of every label I print, by the 4th label they aren't usable


You could fix this in the printer, but faster and easier to alter your program's printing function. Check that you are using the correct form template, and either delete one line from your data, The program may be issuing a line feed, or modify the form dimentions.
print on blank paper until you get it dialed in. Hold up to light and lay labels over or under it to see alignment

Not printing all labels


Do a calibration, this should fix the issue. Also make sure that the label stopper (silver peg on label holder) is pressed firmly against the labels. This will stop the labels from sliding around during a print, throwing off the calibration. Also check to make sure the sensors are free of any dust.

Zebra 2746e will skip leaving a blank label while printing.


You need to calibrate. Hold down the feed key while powering the printer on, then let go. The printer will calibrate, print a config label, then fo into dump mode. Press the fee key again to go out of dump. Of your issue persists, there could be a problem with yoru media, or with the commands that you are sending to the printer.

Printing in page mode feeds extra blanc labels


Make sure,
you firmware is right one for that printer because in most of cases it happens due to wrong firmware and bad ADF kits. so check your ADF kids and if you find them fine the install updated firmware on in.
And put job seperator option always as disabled2168eac.gif
once you done with these all then turn your printer off and turn it back on.

post back if any thing changes and rate all answers.

Good luck

Printer keeps printing blanks...


We have found a reset that we use.
We unplug the printer and then we hold down the feed button and we keep holding down the feed button while we plug back in.
It goes through some sort of a reset and this sometimes works.

It sounds like it needs to be re gapped. Try this:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.
