TLP 2742 not printing

Hello. I have this printer: Zebra TLP 2742, but I can't get it to print. It's connected through a serial port.

If I start it up with the green button pressed, it flashes with a red LED eight times, and then the LED stays on forever. Someone told me it had to be reseted, but I have no way, nor do I know how to do it.

Can anybody help me, please? Thanks in advance.

No gap detected


This could be caused by a couple of issues:
  • Dirty sensor (use compressed air and blow out printer)
  • Wrong media (using labels with black bars obscuring the gap and making it non-readable by sensor)
  • Wrong label format for size of labels used (make sure label size matches the template size)

When using this now with create-a-label the only


This is a Create a Label issue, not a printer issue. I suggest that you post under that heading, or call their tech support for help. having said that, your 2742 is an EPL based printer, try installing another EPL printer in your application and see if that helps. Other EPL printers: Eltron Orion, 2442, 2543, etc.

Trying to setup a Zebra TLP 2844-Z on serial port


Two possibilities are the port configuration and the type of serial cable.

The printer has a feature that will try to match itself to the PC's configuration. Press and hold the feed button until the green status led flashes three times. While the led flashes send a ZPL format to the printer (hopefully you can do this through Design Pro by trying to adjust the printer or print labels, but the labels will not print). When the printer and PC are synchonized, the led changes to solid green.

If you can synchonize but still can't print, the problem might be the serial cable; not all serial cables will work. You should use a full null model cable (all pins connected except 1 and 8).
