How do I restore factory settings to a zebra barcode printer LP-2844-Z


The ^default command has been added to the EPL2 commands, starting in firmware version 4.39. This command will set the printer back to factory settings as long as the printer is in page mode. The command is not supported in line mode at this time. The command is case sensitive.
Syntax: ^default.
You can send the command to the printer via the parallel or serial port.
Parallel:
Open command prompt (DOS prompt) See windows instructions for details.
At the prompt type:
ECHO ^default>LPT1 <enter>
Serial:
Assuming standard communications on the printer of Baud 9600, No parity, 8 bits, 1 stop bit and use of COM 1:
At the prompt type:
Mode Com1:9600,n,8,1 <enter>
ECHO ^default>COM1 <enter>

Lp 2844 will not work with my new laptop


You need a piece of software to create a Virtual com port, make sure you have the comms set correctly 9600, n, 8, 1 and print to that port, you will find it clearly marked in Device Manager. You can get a parallel to USB cable then you can use your driver set to LPT1

Zebra TLC2844 wont print at all


Try to make the self-test first:
Power OFF
Press "FEED" and keep it pressed and turn the power ON again.
Did it print?! if Yes... There must be a cable problem or port.
Is it USB? Serial? Parallel ?
Let's say it's Parallel, go to the command line and type:
"dir >lpt1"
without the quotes and assuming it's connected to 1st parallel port
did it print?!
on serial would be "dir >com1"
or, if it shows up in "Printers", pre-define it and just type: "dir >prn"
Still doesn't work!?
Try with a different cable, or other computer.
You can use it even without installing the drivers...

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).

Zebra LP 2844 parallel communication problem


The printer is installed on the PC using a specific port. If it's installed on the USB port, it won't work on the parallel port. Do you have this printer installed 3 different times? Need more details such as how was it installed the first time? And if it's working on the other 2 ports, why does it have to work on the parallel?

Zebra TLP 2844 Error Condition


Qusetion, Using USB my TLP2844 detects as a LP2844ps. Weird, huh? Also when I calibrate it the label does not stop at the perferation. When I print half goes on one label and the other half goes on the next label. Someone told me once there was a trick to get it to calibrate correctly. Anyone here know this? When I print a test page, it feed the correct amount of label.

How to configure the Zebra S500 using a USB to Parallel adapter?


The Zebra Stripe S500 has a RS-232 SERIAL interface using a DB-25 connector . You'll need a USB to SERIAL converter, not parallel. Be sure that the baud rate and data/stop bits are set the same on the printer and interface converter. Generally speaking, use the fastest setting possible (19200 baud) unless you encounter problems.
