Question about Zebra LP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

2 Answers

Print continuously I want my zebra lp 2844-z to print continuously. I use my zebra with notepad and I have a document that is approx 100 lines long. The document is actually approx 30 address consecutive labels The labels in the printer are 1.9 inches by 4 inches. However, every time I go to print the printer stops after printing one label. How can I get my zebra printer to keep printing all 100 lines on many labels from this notepad document? (I am not worried about the wording on the labels being lined properly as I will be able to solve this)

I know late, but we just had the same issue and it seems the sensors on the outside and inside needed to be cleaned. once that happenned, labels are not printing out continuously.

I need to print labels and bar codes without installing the zebra driver.


This printer supports EPL if it is a true 2844 not a 2844-z. If you want to print to it directly from programming you can to it that way.

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.

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 Thermal 2844 prints text poorly


Lizardlick,
I found this information in the user manual:
Let the print head to cool for one minute, then use a new
cleaning pen to swab the print elements (the thin gray
line on the print head) from end to end. NOTE: You do
not have to turn off the printer to do this.
If print quality remains poor after cleaning, try the
Save-a-Print Head cleaning film to remove buildup
without damaging the print head. Call your authorized
reseller for more information.
