Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Not printing on whole label

I am trying to print on a 6-inch label by sending my commands through an AS/400 session. My printer will only print 5 inches of lines and then goes to the top of the label and starts printing from there a second time.

I have tried changing ^LL, I have tried setting continuous media. Nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any ideas why it will only print 5 inches and not the full 6 inches?

Mine was doing this until I followed the steps to recalibrate it. Sometimes it goes back to printing incorrectly and I just recalibrate it again.

Printing labels from SAP ECC 6.0 using smarforms, label prints however the printer commands themselves are showing on the label, not just the information the print commands are to control. Is there...


Hi there

Does this printer connected with your computer? If yes, there is a problem on printer driver. You need to add new printer with same name and if this successfully installed, you can delete the old printer icon.

When there is errors message or wrong command of printing, the usual problem is corrupted driver.

Another way to correct this is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver if the first solution does not work.

If still not working, try this download and install the print diagnostics software. It will helps you to find and fix errors in the windows registry. Here is the link http://www.out-of-warranty.com/print-diagnostic-utility-for-hp-lexmark-canon-dell-xerox-and-everything-else/. Click on the blue text PRINT DIAGNOSTIC UTILITY and it will download automatically. Unzip it to install to your computer.

I hope these solutions solve your problem. Regards.

It begins to print then stops half way


Having the same problem here... very random... send a print job of labels and it will print the whole lot, or freeze at random points but always halfway through a label... no error message... unplug usb and replug doesnt do anything, but unplug and replug power and off it goes printing more lables but may even freeze again after only a few more have come out... also, every day the first print job of the day prints half the label and pauses for about 10 seconds then keeps going...

Ido not have any problem if I print label using Zebra. I wrote codes on Visual Basic 6 to print label using Datamax printer conneccted parallel port with command L to start. The printer printed the text...


Do you have Zebra emulation firmware installed? If not, your printer will not understand the command language that you are sending to it. Datamax has its own language and you will need a branch in your code to support that if the printer does not work with ZPL.

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.

Programmatically printing using C#


You can print labels with windows driver or sending scape commands. If you have problems with the escapes you will design the label with bartender (you have a demo in the CD) and when you have finished with the design you can print to a file. Open that file and you will find all escape command needed to print.

Zebra LP 2844 doesn't stop feeding paper


Hi,
I had the very same problem but I know it could be several different reasons. In my case it was a media calibration issue. To perform calibration switch the power OFF, then pres FEED button and hold it, Power ON still holding and after three red flashes release it. Calibration report will print out. At the end of that print you should get "PRESS FEED TO END". Do it and it should be ok. Let me know if that worked.

Consistantly Intermittent Connection Problems


If you've tried installing the latest drivers and the problem persists it sounds like you have a lemon. The printers have a 2 yr warranty, so I would contact the retailer you purchased from and replace the printer. If your labels are jamming. Try the compatible File Labels available at LabelValue.com. They have both the Dymo 30327 and Dymo 30277 labels in a compatible version.
