Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Unable to print Zebta TLP 2844.

No response from the printing process. The usually green led light button in the front panel is now red light. What does it mean? When we try to print there is no error prompt in the computer to detect whether the printer has the problem or the computer itself. Totally no response.

When you get a red light it means that there is some type of error, either with the lable or the ribbon.

Take a look at the ribbon and make sure that it is properly placed in the grove otherwise it will 'slip' an wont move.

That is the most common problem that we get.

You have to proceed with the callibration.
It's in the manual.
I think it's as follows.
Switch on the printer while pressing on the feed button.
Wait until the led stays red stable and release the button.
The printer will advance the labels and if everything is correct it will feed one label and the led will turn green.
Now your printer is ready for use with this label

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.

TLP 2844 GAP sensor problem (I guess)


I had the same problem. I found out later there was a small piece of label sticking against the sensor, thus blocking the sensor from sensing the end of the label. As soon as I removed the label (open the cover, it is on the top part) it immediately started to work as usual. Hope this helps.

Solid red light. This indicates the printer is in an error state and will not print until the error is cleared. Check to make sure the printer is not out of labels or out of ribbon if it is a TLP model.
A solid red light will occur if
  • the printer is out of labels
  • the printer is out of ribbon ( TLP models only )
  • the printhead is open, not latched down all the way. Press down on the top cover of the printer to see if the error light clears and goes to green.
  • the ribbon spool is slipping on the ribbon spool holder on TLP models:

Hold the feed button while turning on the printer. After a config label prints, turn the printer off and then on again, and try printing again.

Also, make sure the lid is closed far enough to engage the lid sensor. If the red light comes on again, press down a bit on the lid, hit the feed button and try to print again.
