TLP 2844 skips over labels

My model 2844 does not print consistently. It will print one and skip over a few labels. I am using 4 x 2 (Running in the 2" direction). I am using a thermal gloss material. The labels are pre-printed. Any ideas?

The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.

I've had this same problem on the TLP2844. We are using 3 x 1 labels to print shelf barcode labels, it prints a few then skips some labels then prints more. The number printed and skipped are not always the same.

What I did was recalibrate the printer. Turn the printer off. Hold Feed button and turn printer on. The printer will begin feeding labels, looking for the gaps. After the calibration is complete a configuration page will print. Press Feed after to return to normal mode.

Hope this helps.

My TLP 2742 skips every other label


Skipping every other label is a software template or size format issue. This means your label size in the computer is not set up to match the label size your printing or you have too much text on your label causing it to print out of the bottom margin causing it to skip to the next label.. Very common issue.

We have labels that may help alleviate your problem as well

The printer prints one label and skips another one


First, I need to admit it. This is the worst printer I have ever used. I had all kond of troubles with it.
The skipping labels problem was my misery for 2 days to. I had to find out that my labels were falling out of the printing area generating a new page (label). Go back fix your width. Make sure your label fits one page (label). Print again. That's what I did. Good luck.

TLP 2844 skips 15-16 labels then prints intended label


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: q456 Q152,24
If that doesn't work, then maybe they can provide the other info mentioned above so we can understand the problem better.

Problem printing on Glossy Label [butterfly label] using Zebra TLP 2844 EPL


You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.
