Can not reload lables in the gun


Depending on the type of gun that you have, loading will vary. Here is the most common style of label loading:
Loading
  • At the back of the pricing gun, there's an opening with two spindles to hold a roll of labels. There's also a slot and two small, black rollers, where you'll place the first label to begin feeding them into the gun.

    Insert a roll of labels into the gun opening so that the beginning of the roll is at the back and comes up over the top of the gun. Insert the beginning of the roll into the slot, squeezing the trigger halfway. Push the labels through the gun until they come out at the front. Thread the labels up and under the black plate on the front of the gun and then under the rubber roller. Squeeze the trigger again and pull six or seven labels out. Discard the labels, leaving the paper backing. Thread the paper backing into the underside of the gun, next to the handle, in the direction indicated by the arrow. Push the paper backing while squeezing the trigger until the gun begins dispensing labels.ixzz18ERFHy

      Printing
    1. If the print on the labels is off-center, place a penny in the slot on the right side of the gun and hold it in place. Using another penny, turn the adjuster on the left side of the gun in a clockwise direction, printing test labels to check your correction. Keep turning the adjuster until the print is centered.

      To replace the ink cartridge, turn the latch on the right side of the gun to an upright position. Pull the door out. The ink roller is on the end of the door in a plastic holder. Push the holder apart slightly to remove the old ink roller and insert a new one. Replace the door and turn the latch to hold it in place.

    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 !

    How to feed labels on zebra s4m


    The issue that is causing the problem is when users tear off the label they are actually partially pulling on the next label causing it to peel away a little then when it feeds it will jam. Only reliable way to stop this is once the user prints tell them to press feed and feed 1 label through.

    Also, what I did was to first back all of the labels out and back into the reel. Turn machine off, then back on. With the peel lever down, as mentioned above, begin to load the labels as shown. The light will blink and it will make a noise as it senses the label. It will begin to draw the label in and you need to make sure you create tension on the labels as they are being pulled in. I accidentally did this by holding pressure against the reel, and sure enough, the thing pulled the first label into place and quit frickin blinking!!! Labels printed fine afterwards!

    1. Try just storing your labels in a cool dry place before using them. Peeling labels are usually a sign the glue is poor or weak.
    2. When tearing you labels off, feed them out before tearing them off, then hit the auto-align. See if that helps it.
    3. Try pushing a normal playing card under the metal cutter that tears the labels and pull it up and through the front to bend the blade slightly outward. This will hopefully allow the labels to pass underneath.

    Blinking amber light will feed labels but doesn't print on them


    I have had the same problem and just got my printer working. I moved the peel lever to the lower postion and the printer now works without any problem. The user guide says to postion the lever to the up position (inactive) but that caused the amber blinking lights (not recognizing the label properly)when loading labels. Hope this helps
