Barcodes print too long

I just added a LP2824 printer to a new computer. The printer prints barcodes too long. My scanners wont read the barcode. The printer printed the barcodes fine before. Ive gone through the settings and tried just about every combo I could, but still no good.

This is defendant on the program you use to print labels with. The printer responds to either a print job sent to the driver (like a standard windows printer). Or you can send an EPL program to the printer in order to use internal barcode generating features of the printer. The dimensions of the barcode are controlled via the EPL script. See the EPL programming guide avaialble on Zebra's website for more info.

We have 2 Intermec 4420 printers. We printed the same label out on both printers. Our scanner reads one but won't read the label from other printter. Why do you think this is happening?


if you use the same resolution, and the same print speed, check the temperature use to perform the transfer. The barcodes are not correctly printed on one of your printer.

If this is a normal LP2844 and you can't scan the barcodes it is printing, you will have a faulty printhead with a pixel or two blown.

Speed of printing barcodes


Generally the ZM 400 can cope with printing at the lower speeds when printing barcoedes that are the same. You may get pauses if the barcodes are sequential numbers or are all different, then the data to be transfered to the printer cannot cannot keep up with the printer and pauses while it gets more data. We have found that if you can select in your labelling software to print the barcode as a graphic, then it speed up quite a lot. It is a matter of matching your print speed and quality to match your expectations, sometimes you will just have to put up with the pauses.

Barcodes not scanning


Very possible you have a bad printhead. If you have a bad dot in your print area, it can cause barcodes to not scan. Look to see if you have a blank vertical line running down your label.

Ribbon wrinkles when printing barcodes


This is usually caused by temperature of the thermal print head. This is found in the printing preferences of the printer.

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.
