Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer
Hi, I've had my LP 2844 for 1 week now. For the 1st day it worked fine now it only prints "random computer text". I tried re installing the firmware off the zebra website using a parallel cable, c: prompt then typing either " copy 2844_v4_70_1a_dmx.prg lpt1: /b" and also "copy /b 2844_v4_1a_dmx.prg lpt1". both times it seems to print all this computer language for several meters of label for several minutes and usually stops as a red light.
Thanks, in advance for your help. I have been trying for many hours and many days.
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.
