Printer manufacturers has different standards depending from the varieties of model and brand of printers for example an epson printer model who is older version is not the same speed print with the recent model likewise with the other brand. Therefore calibration of labels is depending to the version of the printer you are using now.

Press pause and feed keys and turn on the printer, release the keys until it begins to move the label. Expected to finish printing, the printer was calibrated.

My Zebra ZDesigner LP2844 feeds a blank label after printing a label. How do I make it stop doing that?


Define your label size correctly. Measure your LABEL exactly, do not include the backing paper or the gap. Calibrate the printer. HOW?
Power off printer. Press and hold the green feed button down and power printer on. Count one, two and release green button. The printer will calibrate and move labels and then print some stuff on the label. Wait until it has comletely stopped. wait another few seconds and the press the feed key once. The printer will print "out of dump". You should now be ready to print again.

How to perform a quick calibration in a Datamax I-class printer


Before to perform a label calibration, check the label and ribbon are installed correctly. Also check the label sensor (the green piece above printhead) is in correct position and clean. To perform, press and hold FEED button and release after 5-6 seconds later. In display you can see CALIBRATION SUCCESS, if not, then do it again. Good Luck. Roberto Martinez.

Printer TLP2824 thermal printer prints too many labels. Prints one and then spits two more out(blank).


Clean media sensors. The blank labels are a result of the printer trying to calibrate label length.

Zebra S400 does not keep the calibration settings. After calibrating or restoring factory settings (like described in the manual) first label prints OK (using BarTender software) then it's off again. Same...


After you calibrate the printer. Press feed a few times. If it feeds a single label each time, then the calibration was successful.Power off and on while holding the cancel button. (config printout). Keep config for reference. Send label print from computer. If it does not work, then check that the printer driver matches the config printout. The computer printer driver will change and overide the settings in the printer

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes


Here are 3 suggestions.

1
Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

2
Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

3
If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Label for zebra tlp 28844-z with 2 columns not aligned


I'm not sure what you mean here but I'm guessing that you mean the labels are not advancing properly meaning the print is not aligned vertically on the labels. If that is the case, two possibilities:
1. The printer just did not get a good calibration on the printer. You can force a calibration by turning off the printer, pressing and holding on the FEED key while turning the printer on. Keep pressing until the status light flashes once, then let go of the FEED key. The printer will calibrate for the label size.
2. If the calibration sequence does not correct the issue, then it's possible that the gap (horziontal) between the labels just happens to be over the media sensor which is located in the middle of the 4" print width area. If that is true then the labels will never calibrate.

Hope that helps !

Printer does not print in correct place after calibration, stops and says paper error


Sounds like the printer is not getting the proper calibration on the label being used. After putting printer in pause and pressing calibrate button, a good calibration is indicated by the labels feeding, a slight hesitation, and the feeding a couple of more labels at a faster speed. If the labels just feed and then stop, that is not a good calibration. Then you have to make sure the top and bottom media sensor are properly aligned.

I have a Zebra Z4M printer. Just put new roll of labels in and they print one, sometimes two and then skip labels in between.


This is a calibration issue. The labels or ribbon are not loaded correctly. If they are, turn the printer off and then back on and the printer will run a calibrate. This should correct it. Once it is complete, you can verify by pressing the feed button and making sure it feeds one label at a time.

During manual calibration of the Z4Mplus the


Let the printer calibrates itself or have a manual calibration in the printer setup. You can also press the keys FEED, PAUSE and CANCEL, turn on the printer and release the keys when feeding the labels.

Reg. zebra S600 lable


I had this happen when I changed from one label to a different size label. It needs to be calibrated. There are several types of calibration to do to the S600. Here is the solution that worked for me.
  1. Check the position of the laser Media Sensor (figure 13). It may need to be moved to match the type of label that will be printed.
For CARD labels, the media sensor needs to be set at the edge of the card so it can “see through” the notch that is cut on the edge where the perforation is.

    1. For STICKY labels, it can “see through” the backing which shows between each sticky label, so the Media Sensor could be set anywhere for it to work, but will probably be set towards the middle.
Set to Factory Defaults. This is so that all of the following steps will work. I do not need to change the steps based on the type of mode that printer is set up in because it will erase all that by setting it to the factory default. (See figure 14 for buttons)

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Hold the FEED and PAUSE buttons down as the printer power is turned on.
    3. Press MODE button four times.
    4. When the defaults are saved to the printer, the CALIBRATE, DARKER, and POSITION lights will all flash.
Test to see if the calibration is set correctly for the label. If not, proceed to the following steps.

  1. Do a Manual Calibration.
Turn off the printer.
    1. Hold the PAUSE, FEED, and CANCEL buttons down as the printer power is turned on, keeping the buttons depressed.
    2. This will run through several labels and do some printing.
    3. Release all three buttons after the CALIBRATION light comes on and then goes back off.
Put the printer into Auto-Calibration Mode.

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Hold PAUSE, CANCEL, and MODE down as the printer power is turned on.
    3. Release the buttons after printer is powered on.
