Zebra LP 2824 Comm port problem

I am having problem communication with the printer through the COMM port. When I send some jobs to the printer, the jobs were displayed in the printer queue and then gone. It looks like the jobs were sent to the printer but nothing came out on the label.

I couldn't send the command "^default" through COMM port.
I did try to hook up other LP 2824 printers with the same computer and they work fine.

Is there anyway to get this to work or anyway to reset this printer to the factory default?

I believe if you hold the button down that has the green ring around it and power it back on it resets the printer to the factory defaults.

Am having problem communication with the printer through the USB port.

There should have been some software that came with the cable. This is a utility that has to run on the system to enable the printer to communicate across the USB to paralell jump.

If the printer doesn't react when you send a print job to it (either prints, or displays an error code on the display) and just sits there doing nothing, it generally means the print job didn't get to the printer. Check your communication settings. The printer comm settings must match the settings in your software. The default comm settings on the printer are:
Baud : 9600
word length: 8
stop bits: 1
parity: none
flow control: dtr
