Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

2 Answers

WordPerfect prints a blank label after each request

I have WP10 and a template has been created for the networked label printer, LP2844 and after each print request a blank label is also printed.

Does this have anything to do with the default printer having duplexing selected? as WP uses the system settings and is some how messing up the Zebra to make it think there is 2 labels, when in reality there is only 1 requested?

The default printer is a Lexmark.

I would think you are printing using a printer driver for the LP2844, not using the lexmark driver. Depending on whose Zebra driver you're using, one setting to check would be to make sure the web sensor is being used for type of media sensor. The names for this setting vary but can usually be found in the printing preferences tab.

Hope this helps a little.....

Printing on edge


Your software label template does not match the size label your printing on. Make sure your label size IE: 2.25" x 1.25" matches the template size in the software, then perform this calibration:

My Zebra ZDesigner LP2844 feeds a blank label after printing a label. How do I make it stop doing that?


Define your label size correctly. Measure your LABEL exactly, do not include the backing paper or the gap. Calibrate the printer. HOW?
Power off printer. Press and hold the green feed button down and power printer on. Count one, two and release green button. The printer will calibrate and move labels and then print some stuff on the label. Wait until it has comletely stopped. wait another few seconds and the press the feed key once. The printer will print "out of dump". You should now be ready to print again.

MY ZEBRA LP 2844-Z IS PRINTING BLANK, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Since the LP2844 is a direct thermal printer, the first thing to check is to make sure you have direct thermal labels - regular label stock won't work. Just quickly scrape your thumbnail across the label, the friction will cause a black line if the label is direct thermal.

My dymo label printer is printing 2 labels at a time. One has the label I want. The other is blank. Can you help me?


There are a few common reasons this is problem can exist.

1.) the incorrect template is used when creating the label

2.) the labels are installed incorrectly - the labels must be loaded and pushed against the left side of the printer and lid closed when printing to ensure the labels don't "wander" out of the sensor's view.

3.) the label sensor is covered by some debris - sometimes a label jam can cause a piece of label to become stuck on the underside of the sensor thus blocking its view.

4.) The labels are defective - if you have another roll of the same size, try it to see if it has the samme issue.

We have a LP2844 printer that prints multiple blank labels sporadically. How do we stop it?


Make sure the label size is set correctly and the printer is calibrated. If this doesn't work download drivers from Nice Lable or Seagul Scientific websites to suit you Printer, these are more adjustable than the original Zebra drivers and handle small labels better.

Why my LP2844 is not appearing anything when I print ? It only ejects blank paper.


Take one of the labels and hold a lighter close to it. The label should react by turning black. If it doesn't, the labels are bad. Try this first and let us know.
