Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

Open Question

Printing is fuzzy. Not clear

When printing a label, some of the address comes out fuzzy and is hard to read. Is there any ink in these printers or how do you get it to be clear again. Do I have to replace the board?

SOURCE: Zebra 2844 Not printing at all

Antztech,
if the red light is coming on and staying on, it might be a sensor problem. Try pushing on the lid and see if the light goes to green. If it does, it' s the gap sensor. This is how the printer "reads" the labels gaps-the little spaces between the labels. We've solve this in the short term by covering the sensor and manually setting the gap through the programming command prompt,

SOURCE: HP Deskjet F2180 Margins incorrect for label printing

I eventually managed to print my labels one sheet at a time by forcing the label top edge down the page. You can insert one or two lines above the label template and adjust the font size to get the right distance. It took a bit of trial & error but got there in the end. Hope it helps you

SOURCE: how do I clear the memory on a zebra gk420d?

Download the Seagull scientific GK420 ZPL driver. Version 7.16.

Open the driver file, (Double click on printer icon in printer & faxes folder)

Click Printer, properties, tools, action, reset printer.

Play around with the Seagull driver, it is very useful, you can format memory, read files stored in printer memory, see forms, fonts, images etc.

The forms stored in the G series printers are not cleared by the normal methods which one would use on it's predecessor the 2844 models. The G series will maintain the forms stored in its memory even if you download new firmware, or reset it. This is actually a good thing, as it prevents you from accidentally erasing forms stored in the printer.

The printer suddenly started printing fuzzy text. I think it is out of alignment but when I try to print the alignment page, it comes out fuzzy too. Is there another way to align the printer and take care...


There are several reasons why the HP All-in-One may fail to align the cartridges. The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The ink cartridge is defective

The code between the labels indicates either you are using labels designed for another model or that it is thinking it has a shippinhg label opr some lareger type installed. IT is more likely to be the first option, you are usinjg the wrong coded labels

Brother mfc 5840 won't print clearly


you need to check the maintainence kit and see if it's full. Also if it isn't, use some iso-proponal alcohol and some q-tips to clean the print section of the cartridge and the cartridge tray.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label


Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.
