Question about Zebra 105SL Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Bad driver? I had a 105S zebra and have been using it for a year with an MicrosoftAccess inventory program created for us. We print labels from the access program. Everything was going fine until I had to wipe the laptop we printed from. The printer drives had to be replaced and ever since then I get blotchy labels or the lettering is stretched on random labels or the writing is bunched together with the UPC. Have you heard of this problem before?

I am trying to install a lp 2824 plus zebra label printer and i need to know whether to select epl or zpl?

You should probably select ZPL, but that depends on which program you will use together with the printer.

Check to see what printer driver you are using. If you are using Seagull Scientific Bartender, you will need the printer driver from Seagull Scientific for it to print properly. You can download it from the Seagull website. Hope this helps!!

Using copaq 7400 laptop for running zebra 90xiIII

Can you explain in complete sentences what you are trying to achieve here?

It sounds like you:
have 90XiIII printer
have a Laptop running Windows 98
either need or have a driver
either need or have a label printing program
want to print labels with sequential numbers.

Go to and download the Zebra Designer label creation software package. Read the help files. Install the driver for your printer from this application. Create a label and hit print. the sequential label feature may not be available on the free version.

I have a zebra lb2844 label printer. Does anyone know if it can be used as a receipt printer instead? I am looking for a generic driver that may work as the supplied one wants a label size. (I want to...

Normally this printer s meant to print labels.
To have them work as line printers there is only one thing to do. Start the printer while pressing on the button. When it starts feedingthe paper release the button. After printing the configuration it will act as a line printer. But the best way to use it as a receipt printer is to create a program which will send the information to the printer through a windows driver if your software can do that

Zebra label alignment

you can adjust this in the template file for your price tags. how did you create your basic price tag label? in the zebra label creator? if so, make the adjustment there. if you have a .ejf file for your price tag label, you should be able to open it in notepad and add the height in pixel dots with the "q" or "Q" command from the EPL programming handbook. This can be a little tricky, but with some trial and error, you can get it.

An extra, blank label prints from a Zebra 2746e.

Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.

Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)

Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.

Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

2844 UPS Printer Prints Duplicate Labels

The quick and simple answer is to use a different driver instead of the 2488 driver that UPS provides, that is where the problem lies..
Under printer properties, Advanced Tab, I changed the printer driver to Zebra S4MDT-200dpi and now the printer works fine. Prints labels correctly, and most of all only one label at a time... The drivers are there in the UPS software, just change which one you use and go...

Zebra 105 SE Printing Blank Labels

You need the correct driver for the 105Se. The 300 dpi SL driver is not compatible.

Unfortunately, Zebra does not make it's older drivers available online. You will need to locacte someone with the correct driver for whichever version of Windows you are using.
