Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer
When the last label printed is still under the printhead, that means the printer is in "rewind mode". There should be an option for "tear off" mode in the printer driver. This is the mode that pushes the last label printed out to the tear bar. The printer will then "backfeed" when printing the next label. Peel off mode is used if you want to print a label and have it "peeled" off the liner so that you can just pick up the label off the liner and apply it. That takes the rewind option to be installed.
Watch out though, if you are using a label software package, there might be a setting in the label format setup for "tear off" which usually overrides the settings in the printer.
Hope that helps !

I had this problem one time, and it was awhile back, but I remember that calibration didn't help me, either. I had to get into some part of the menu, and just barely inch-feed the label to set it, and then print it. I had to do it quite a few times to get it right. The setting "label with gaps" is right. My Zebra also had a slight backfeed, which makes me think maybe a sensor is not working correctly. I would try to clean the machine per the manual, as good as I could, then see if that helps. Then I would play around with different feed settings, to try to get the label situated so as not to trigger another feed. Sorry I don't have a more explicit explanation- it's been awhile since I had to maintain it.
