Just installed my 2844

When I print a shipping label from Paypal TWO labels come out. One prints the bottom third of the label (no address or return address) the second label prints instructions.

Bask11,
sounds like the printer needs to regap itself. Turn the printer off, hold the feed button down and while holding the feed button, turn the printer back on. As soon as it flashes, let go. It will regap itself. When it stops moving, press the feed button once and there should be a priinted line that says 'out of dump'. The printer should be ready to go then.

Check that your printer setup software is "setup" correctly (AKA printer properties in "control panel" or "devices & printers").

Look at the "label size" and orientation (portrait or landscape) in the printer setup, that may be wrong and cutting off the rest of the printout. If you indicate more printer buffer size that what there is, that to might cause problems.

Other things to check for: Do you have the correct print driver for your OS?

Make sure you have the correct printer selected in Ebay. I don't use Ebay to print labels out with my thermal printer, but I use paypal and I believe they are very similar if not the same. Also, in paypal anyways, you have to have the correct run-time version of JAVA installed in order for it to work properly. Don't know about ebay, but that might be something to look into.

My lp 2844 will not print


Firstly is your label Thermal Direct?(DT)
To test quickly score your fingernail across the surface of the label, if it leaves a black mark then it is DT
If there is no mark then it is probablly Thermal Transfer(TT) and requires a ribbon, which you cannot use on the LP 2844, only on the TLP2844.

If you have DT labels then go into the printer driver via Printers & Faxes and the Printing preferences and change the darkness to level 7.
Try printing again.
If it works then cahnge the darkness again until you get a satisfactory print darkensss.
If it still does not print then change the darkness to maximum, does it print?
If not then I think you have a duff printer, return it to the company that supplied it for repair.
Any problems contact Lancer labels

TLP 2844 skips over labels


The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.

UPS Thermal 2844 Connection problem(USB)


Add the printer as a Local LPT1. Then go into the properties and switch the port to a USB port. Try a test label. If it doesn't print, go back to properties of the printer and switch it to another USB until it does. If all else fails there is a remove utility included with the Zebra drivers you downloaded. You can remove all zebra related drivers and printers and then reboot. The PC should redetect the printer when you turn it on.
