Question about Zebra TLP 2844 Label Printer

1 Answer

Print labels created in ms access

I created a report in Access using the label wizard but can not get it to print correctly on a Zebra 2844 printer. I am not sure what I need to change in Access to get then to print correctly. When they go to print it skips or acts like it is printing to a normal letter sized paper.

Hi I am printing barcode labels on a Zebra Tlp2844-Z. I can print resident barcodes in passthrough mode using the old Zebra driver (1.0.0.43) but the barcode does not print using the ZDesigner driver...


Have you tried creating the barcode / label using the ZDesigner software? It is available free on their website and I'm sure you'll find it easy to use. Hope this helps!

Using MS Access, I am printing labels to a Zebra 110XiIII printer. The output truncates the label to 2" instead of the 3.5" I have the report page settings saved as. I have been through the setup...


First check printer. Change setting "Print Width" to maximum width, save. Switch off. Hold down pause key while switching on (untill all but power light turns off). the subsequent prints should print across the full width. If this is OK fault is with label format.

If you are using windows printer driver check settings there this can over ride printer settings. If using ZPL the problem is most likely in the label format.

Everytime i turn on my zebra tlp 2844-z it prints 2 blank labels.anyone please help me to solve this problem


Are you using the correct labels?
Direct Thermal Printers use different labels than printers with ribbons.
If you print a label using labels from a ribbon printer in a direct thermal printer they will come out blank.

Eltron 2844 prints previous job over and over


Make sure the label size is correct, if the print encounters a gap before it is complete; it will re-print the same label. In MS Word make sure the page size is set to the correct size including any headers and footers and Width etc.

2844 UPS Printer Prints Duplicate Labels


The quick and simple answer is to use a different driver instead of the 2488 driver that UPS provides, that is where the problem lies..
Under printer properties, Advanced Tab, I changed the printer driver to Zebra S4MDT-200dpi and now the printer works fine. Prints labels correctly, and most of all only one label at a time... The drivers are there in the UPS software, just change which one you use and go...

LP 2844 not working with Create-A-Label v3.04


If you are using CAL (Create A Label) you must have a device called a "Dongle" plugged into your parallel (or USB) port. This acts as the activation key for CAL. If there is no dongle then CAL only works in demo mode. That's why printer Icon stays grayed out. The "Dongle" normally plugs directly into the parallel port and one end of the parallel lead plugs into the "Dongle" while the other plugs into your printer.

I would suggest that you download "Zebra Designer" software from the Zebra Website..This will work without any activation.
If you use ZD you must use the correct ZDesigner driver. (Install automatically as part of ZD setup) This driver only works with ZD.


If you need to link to a database then you will have to BUY label software. Zebra Designer Pro, or Nicelabel, or Bartender....etc.

Zebra printers & MS Word


HI Les1810,

You should be printing faster with Zebra fonts.
Which driver are you using? Version?
I strongly recommend the Zebra Designer V1.3.08, available at Zebra.com

To isolate the problem, capture the output to a file.
Define a local port as C:\output.txt and set that as the port in driver properties.
Now print your document. The printer commands will be in C:\output.txt.

Send c:\output.txt directly to your printer.
For LPT1, use the DOS copy command to send the file. (Copy C:\output.txt LPT1)
For serial connections, use Hyperterm to send the file.
For network connections, use ftp.
No easy USB method is readily available.

Does this print faster than printing the original document from Word through the driver?
If yes, then update your driver.
If no, debug your communication to the printer (LPT1, serial, network, etc.)

Improper printing of barcodes


recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size
