Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

One label printing over two label forms

Is this an alignment issue. The problem is when I send a label print job to the Zebra printer. It starts printing so low on the form and then prints the rest on the 2nd form. It should fit on one form. However after switch off then back on the label will print perfectly. What's happening here?

Always check to make sure the printer is advancing one label at a time by itself before printing. If it does then you know the printer has a good read on the label size. Then if it misaligns when printing then you know the problem is in the printer driver because the printer is only going to do what it's told to do.

So best is to turn printer off, power up, press feed to see if one label feeds ok. If the label feed is off at this point then the printer needs to be calibrated which is done by pressing and holding FEED while turning the printer on.

Hope that helps !

Why is the text printing on Zebra LP 2844-Z label incorrectly spaced?


Zebra printers are not really made to print PDF files, if the only option is PDF I'd recommend switching to print on a laser. Also open the PDF and see if they are correct in the original doc

Zebra QL420 portable printer label gets misaligned frequently


There are two things to consider here: 1) Is the printer set to the correct media handling setting? Look in the manual for the terms BAR-SENSE and GAP-SENSE and make sure that you have sent the correct command to the printer. 2) There is a TOF or Top of Form setting that you can send to the printer to align the perforation of the labels with the tear bar. Look for the syntax in the manual, which is free for download at zebra.com, and make sure that your perfs line up with your tear bar.

Zebra printer 140xilll - Too many print jobs?


It does sound like you have a memory overload when you send the 2nd print job. Each label is getting sent to the printer and filling up the memory. Make sure you are using the printer resident fonts and not a regular windows font. The windows fonts get sent down as graphics and take up memory. What zebra is saying to do is store the format of the label in the printer memory and then just send down the information that changes. For example if you were printing a UPS label the basic format of the label is the same but things such as the addresses and tracking # would change.

Sent too many labels to printer - need to reset


As the previous expert has stated, with the printer paused, press the cancel key to cancel the job. One thing to note, is depending on how your software sends the print jobs, you may say print 1000 labels, but the software sends it one at a time, so basically you have 1000 print jobs in the printer. If you pause the printer, press and hold the cancel key. Hold it for about 2 mins. This should clear the buffer.

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.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Test page print within Win XP


This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.
