TLP 2844 won't print barcodes

Hi, I just installed a TLP2844 and ran the Dump to ensure it was in Page mode. I created a file from the documentation example (B10,10,0,3,3,7,200,B,"998152-001") but when I print it, the label comes out "as is" rather than with the barcode interpreted. (so it just prints B10,10 ... etc)

Thanks,

    TLP 2844 won't print barcode labels. I have tried reseting the printer and even tried another TLP 2884. I have the latest drivers from the Zebra site and still not having much luck. It will print out the label except the barcode shows numbers instead of a barcode. Any ideas?

The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode:
Turn printer power off.
Hold the feed button while turning printer power on.
When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button.
When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button.
When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed.
Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.

This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.

Hi.
To use the
B,1,2, etc settings you must have the printer as a "generic / text only"
If not, windows tries to print system fonts..

To print a label:
open driverproperties
find the tab for "barcode"
create a barcode "name" and select what barcode and settings it should match.
The "name" now shows up on your client as a dummy font, select in word or any other windows application and you print a barcode.

Canon mx410 how to scan multiple pages into one document


Hi,

What you need to do is select the file type as .png instead of the default .jpg. A .png file will create one file with multiple pages.

Good Luck

Bothers MCF-490CW 4 in 1 || scanner - when scanning multiple pages, what must I do so when I send as an attachment the attachment is one group instead of each individual sheet?


Create a WORD document then paste each images on a page, save the Word document and then send this Word document as an attachment in your e-mail.
If you do net want to send the Word document then you can create a PDF of the Word document and send the PDF file as an attachment.

Hi, when I scan a document through the feeder in the top of my laser jet 3055 it creates individual pdf's for each page. I know it is possible to have one pdf for the entire document but not sure...


Yes, it is possible, all you need to do is one of two things:

One is use the feeder, that inherently knows multiple copies.

Or use the HP scanner software, (installed on each computer) and add a page.

One detail to watch is the size of the file. it gets quite large easily and certainly with multiple pages.....meaning you cannot e-mail the file sometimes...

Reset your output resolution for your document in the 100 to 150 range. Higher resolutions may be needed for some documents, but not most. This keeps the file size usable with a smaller file size.

Flush problem zebra tlp2844


The firmware download utility program comes on the CD supplied with the printer. Use this to download the firmware file to the printer. Check on the zebra website for the latest firmware file. (You should be able to download the Download utility program from the website also. (Steady red may indicate that the printer is set to the incorrect operating mode. Check that you have the correct setting in your printer driver - Thermal Transfer if you use a ribbon, Direct Thermal if not) Easiest way to check is to insert a ribbon and see if printer works)

How to change paper size on axerox phaser 8500


From a Windows Operating System:
  1. From the computer, open the document to be printed within an application program.
  2. Click on [File] on the toolbar, and then click [Print]. The Print window will be displayed.
  3. Click on the [Properties] button, or the [Printing Preferences] button. The Properties or Printing Preferences window will be displayed.
  4. Click on the [Paper / Quality] tab.

    NOTE: Most applications will automatically provide the page size information to the driver. If not, steps 8 - 10 describe how to create a custom page size.

  5. Select the required paper size from the Document Size pull down menu, if available.
  6. If the required custom paper size is not available click on the [My Customer Sizes…] button.
  7. To create a new custom paper size setting click on the [New] button.
  8. In the Name field enter the name to be given to the custom paper size. For example 127 mm x 394 mm (5 in. x 10 in.)
  9. In the Width field enter the width of the custom paper size.

    NOTE: The width should always be the short edge of the paper. For example, if the custom size is 127 mm by 394 mm (5 inches by 10 inches), the width must be set to 127 mm (5 inches) regardless of the orientation of the document or the feed method on the printer.

  10. In the Height field enter the height of the custom paper size.

    NOTE: The height should always be the long edge of the paper. For example, if the custom size is 127 mm by 394 mm (5 inches by 10 inches), the height must be set to 394 mm (10 inches) regardless of the orientation of the document or the feed method on the printer.

  11. Click on [Save]
  12. Click on [Close].
  13. Select the required paper size from the Document Size pull down menu.
  14. Click on [OK] twice to print
From a Mac OSx:
  1. Click on [File] on the application toolbar, and then click on [Page Setup]. The Page Setup window will be displayed.
  2. From the Printer Description pull-down menu, select the correct PPD file for your printer.
  3. Select the custom paper size for your document from the Paper Size pull-down menu.

Zebra TLP2844 Prints Centered and Half the Width


create a word template document with the page size the same size as the label. Set the margins to 0 and fill the label up with text. This should make the printer print right the way over the bale.
