One of two situations exists:
1. If the printing stops with clear stopping edge, then the PRINT WIDTH setting has been changed from the default full width setting of 104mm.
Best way to check this is to take your tallest and widest label and print out a configuration label. This is done by turning off the priner, pressing the CANCEL key and holding while turning on the printer. Release the button when the calibrate led turns off. A config label will print and you can check the setting for PRINT WIDTH.

2. If the printing stops by fading away to the right side, then that is caused by a pressure imbalance across the printhead. There is more pressure on the left side than the right side. There are two toggles the press down on the printhead and the pressure can be adjusted on each by turning the knob on top. Readjust the right side until printing returns across the label.

Hope that helps !

    check for a setting in your printer driver. Are you using a labeling software package ?

    You could also set the printer to Factory Defaults. That will return the width to 104mm but some other parameters will reset as well. To do defaults, turn printer off, then press and hold FEED and PAUSE while turning on the printer. After a few seconds, you can let go and the printer will be reset. Save the settings by pressing MODE 4 times until the three LED's flash. Then turn printer on and off again and you will be back to the full width.

SOURCE: Zebra 170PAX3 not printing the top half of label

If you print a power on test label, see if the print is aligned, id so, use the top of form setttings to get all the print on the label.

As far as a USB, the printer will only take RS232-422,485, and parallel, and you can add the factory Nic card or use an external print server.

My zebra tlp 2824 won't line up to the labels


Either your printer needs calibrated: Calibrate Zebra Desktop Printer

Or your label template size( in the software) does not match the label size. I recommend the calibration then looking at the software label templates.

My Zebra 105SE is printing fine on the left


I think the 105 has an adjustment on the printhead. There are left and right hand adjusters just above the printhead. It sounds as if the right hand one does not have enough pressure on it, try increasing the RH one and see the effect on the print.

Printing half the vertical, no matter what size label in use.


Some drivers adjust the length of the print area, regardless of the length of the label. Do calibrate the label and also verifies that the margins are zero.
