Re: Zebra LP 2844 prints blanks
If the printer is printing nothing but blanks, try another roll of labels.
If the printer is printing blanks in between labels, it probably needs to be gap sensed. You can do this by: 1. turn the printer off. 2. hold the feed button down and then power the printer back on while still holding the feed button down. 3. release the feed button when the light flashes. 4. the printer will then regap itself 5. when the regapping is done, press the feed button once. It will print on the label that it is 'out of dump' 6. the printer should then be ready to go.

possible was reset to factory defult and the darkness is to low, press the button until flash 5 times and let run untill see the dark print. then press the buton again. Try to print again (flash 1x)
outher possibility is the ribbon in on other way.
other possibility is the labels need to use ribbon (Thermal Transfer), and the printer is run out from ribbon.(run as Direct Termal.
Since the LP2844 is a direct thermal printer, the first thing to check is to make sure you have direct thermal labels - regular label stock won't work. Just quickly scrape your thumbnail across the label, the friction will cause a black line if the label is direct thermal.
Try this START SETTINGS PRINTER/FAXES in the pop up window go to FILE/SERVER PROPERTIES DRIVERS SELECT THE MFC5440 DRIVER AND REMOVE SELEST THE LP 2844 DRIVER AND REMOVE Now go to www.seagullscientific.com and download the Zebra driver pack, once downloaded run it and install the Zebra Lp2844 to with the USb port.
This should solve the problem, if not please come back.
It sounds like they may need to set their "Q" values for the labels they are using. If that isn't it, we may need more info - are they using Zebra brand or custom labels?
To start with, I would ask them to try adding these "Q" value commands:
If that doesn't work, then maybe they can provide the other info mentioned above so we can understand the problem better.
It sounds like it needs to be re gapped. Try this: 1. Make sure that printer power is off. 2. Press and hold the feed button. 3. Turn printer power on. 4. When the status light blinks, release the feed button. 5. The printer advances the media to measure and verify the length of individual labels or tags. The printer then prints a status summary and remains in diagnostic dump mode. 6. To begin normal operation, tap the feed button. The printer prints "out of DUMP" and advances a label.
