Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Won't print last inch on label

I'm using a Zebra LP 2844-Z, it used to be fine, I've now recently been trying to print after not using it for months and it keeps leaving the bottom inch or so of the label blank. I have tried everything I can think of to alter the margins & label size settings, reseting to default etc but nothing has worked.

Any ideas?

Zebra 2844 Printer was fine...unplugged USB then plugged into a different port on the same computer now it won't print. Says error in the printing status. It is not offline or paused.


This is due to windows which has attributed a new virtual usbport.
Go to the printer port and try another one (the last one for example)

I'm using my LP-2844 in conjunction with Label Matrix software and I've run into a snag with my printer. When switching between jobs, I went from one label size to another (something i've done...


The problem with this type of printer is that you need to callibrate the size of the label in fact the Length. If you change the length then the printer may stop printing correctly ans stalls.
From your driver try to do a calibration of sensors with your labels and this sould work with this model.
Other manufacturers handle the varying length dynamically.

Zebra LP 2844 doesn't feed label all the way out for tearing off. When I print a label everything prints fine, however the last 1/4" or so is still left in the printer. Technically, it's like the printer...


Hi Brian,
When the last label printed is still under the printhead, that means the printer is in "rewind mode". There should be an option for "tear off" mode in the printer driver. This is the mode that pushes the last label printed out to the tear bar. The printer will then "backfeed" when printing the next label. Peel off mode is used if you want to print a label and have it "peeled" off the liner so that you can just pick up the label off the liner and apply it. That takes the rewind option to be installed.
Watch out though, if you are using a label software package, there might be a setting in the label format setup for "tear off" which usually overrides the settings in the printer.

Hope that helps !

Zebra lp2844 printing incorrectly with paypal multi order


Same here... Can't be the printer - has to be something with either the paypal software or the driver since my 'SAMPLE' prints solid as well. Did you ever find a solution?

Look at the stocks tab in the driver. There is an area in your print driver to adjust the width/height of the kind of label you are trying to use.
