Trying to print the data from a Mettler Toledo IND690 Weighing Terminal to a TLP2844 Zebra

We want to print labels, which should contain the data from a weighing terminal, like Gross,/Net & tare weight and a few other varaibles to a Zebra TLP2844 Label Printer, through a Serial 9pin connection. We configure the label in the Zebra Designer Software, with a header, but it seems that this software, which was included with the printer on delivery, don't have the facility/place to create a variable field/s, so we can cofigure a space/feild on the label, enabling us to print data from the weighing terminal once we connect the printer to the Terminal.
Is ther any software that we can get to perform this function? Or any other solution
Your assitance would be greatly appreciated

Zebra Designer (the free version) will not accomplish this. I recommend Bartender Pro from Seagull Scientific

Try LabelMatrix from Teklynx. If you buy the full version, you will get the ability to create code that will give you a 'dynamic' data field to do what you need to do. Software developers use this method to load programs to portables. Otherwise you get a bit-stream type of code that will not make sense since all the software used today is usually WYSIWYG.

SOURCE: Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Turn off the printer, then hold down the feed button while you turn it on again. After the configuration label prints, turn the printer off and on again,then try to print your labels.

If the barcodes still don't print, make sure they don't extand past the top, bottom or side of the label. If you software allows you to "clear the label cache" or "re-image the enitre label", try that.

SOURCE: 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.

We are considering different print drivers. Zebra's tech support is horrible and staffed with lazy, blundering idiots.

I have a brand new zebra tlp2844 I have set it up with a resin ribbon, the print quality is very poor and patchy why is this ?


There are a couple of possible solutions.
1/ Resin ribbons are meant to be used on synthetic labels onle ie vinyl or polyester. If you are trying to print on paper labels then you will get a rubbish print. you need to use either a wax ribbon or a wax resin ribbon.

2/ If you are printing onto a synthetic labels and the print is light, try increasing the "print darkness" some times called contrast or heat or printhead setting.. This can be fount in the printer set up in the labels software you are using or in the print drive under "Print Preference"

What is the defult ip address for the zebra tlp2844?


When received or when a reset is performed, the default IP address is: 10.3.4.102. The best way to confirm this is to force the printing of a configuration label. Look at the configuration label that is printed. That will contain the "current" IP assigned to the printer. You can download the manuals for this from the Zebra web site using the model number to get to the printer specific page. Choose the download tab.

Losing half of top line when printing


Label definition in printer driver may need adjustment. Try calibrating printer, printer on solid green light, hold down feed key & release after light blinks 4 times, (blinks once, twice, three times then 4 times) Download the Zebra setup utility and use it to configure printer.

Hi there! I work with Zebra TLP2844 through


If you are using Bartender, Make sure to use the Seagull Scientific Zebra Driver. The zebra driver works (but not properly) with bartender. Download the driver from Seagull Scientific site. You can also email bartender tech support, their contact details are available from the help screen on the main bartender design screen. I have always found them to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label


Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.
