    Yes I have done all that. I am pretty good with computers. By no means an expert, but all the easy stuff I have tried. Could it be the fact that the application im printing from stops it? I don't know why it would matter. I have made sure the Landscape is on. I have also tried portrait just to make sure the app wasn't reading it wrong. What else may be the problem. This is a label machine for work. I need your expertise.

    Yes I have tried that. I am trying to print out of HTML does that make a difference? When I print from a document it works. On a document I can get it to print but it is only using the very middle of the label. I cannot adjust the margins to have it use the entire label. I tried getting rid of the Header and footer but that didnt help either. Any thoughts?

Generally this is a Barcode printer. In order to print landscape you will need to change the setting from the printer Properties > Printing Preferences > Layout > select Landscape and save it. Again go to your Program/Application, Open the Page Setup , change the Print type/Orientation/Layout to Landscape. Now save it and try print. I think it will help you to fix the issue. Thanks for being with Fixya. Good Luck

Hi

where did you change the setting?

What I would recommend is that you open printers and faxes (start -> printers and faxes or start -> control panel -> classic view -> printers and faxes or printers.)

right click on the printer and select printing preferences
on the layout page change the orientation to landscape.

Now try printing again, if the page still doesn't come out as landscape then in the program your printing from, for example word, You would need to change the orientation there as well.

let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks,
ekse

Cannot print multiple copies


Is the printer set for label taken, if it is then it is waiting for the sensor to see the label is gone before printing the next one. Apart from that, check the settings in the driver and make sure it is all set correctly

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.

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.
