    Thanks! I am using a USB cable - do I need to use a parallel port cable instead?

Hello, Nate.

I would suggest that, in Printers and Faxes, you delete the LP2844 icon.

Disconnect the printer's cable from your computer.

Restart your computer.

Reconnect your cable to your computer.

Your computer should 'see" the printer.

Install the printer's new driver.

Hope this helps.

    Hello again, Nate.

    You can use serial, parallel or USB connections. So, USB is good.

How do I use Excel to pring labels with the Zebra LP2844?


I'm going to assume you can already print from the computer to the Zebra. I am also going to assume that since you have Excel, you also have Word. The first thing you need to do is layout the labels in Word. I cannot be more specific because I have no idea what size labels you are using.
Create and print labels

Next you need to merge the values from Excel into Word
Mail merge using an Excel spreadsheet

Here are some videos that might help

Epson standard code is totally different. EPL is Eltron printer language. I've not programmed in it, but there should be a programmers manual out there somewhere.

When I print either a word doc or excel I get nothing printed but only garbled language as 1 line sentence on the paper: Something like this: AQKM!SEU!QAGEQSOUECU=AUUOAQKM!SEU!SESOMUUIOO=711AQKM!


Is it printing like that only on Word and Excel? If not you better uninstall the printer driver and reinstall again.. sometimes installed drivers get mess up specialy if we have done some updates or installation in other software.

Thanks

Zebra lp2844 printing incorrectly with paypal multi order


Same here... Can't be the printer - has to be something with either the paypal software or the driver since my 'SAMPLE' prints solid as well. Did you ever find a solution?

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.

Zebra LP2844 Thermal Printer won't print from a browser


I posted this problem last week and since that time discovered the problem (at least for me). I had to replace the HD and failed to update a current version of Java. Without Java in place I could call for it to print but the print job would disappear into thin air. After installing a current version of Java the machine began printing again and has worked perfectly.
