Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

I have Zebra tlp 2844 printer and Windows 7 OS. I have installed Zebra TLP2844 and ZDesigner TLP 2844 drivers and I want to use ELP to print text, barcode etc. Printer is connected to computer via USB. I tried everything, to send text from app using Win API, to map it to lpt1 and send files from cmd prompt, to change drivers settings, but notjing works. Printer 1) doesn't react, 2) prints nothing, empty label goes out and 3) prints command like a plaint text. Anyone has a suggestion? Aleksandar

Have you tried creating the barcode / label using the ZDesigner software? It is available free on their website and I'm sure you'll find it easy to use. Hope this helps!

Everytime I turn my Zebra TLP 2844-Z printer on,


The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but the printer has to be told by the driver not to expect ribbon or the red light will come on. Also not having the correct paper height set in the driver will make the red light come on as well so check the advanced tab in the properties of the driver then click printing defaults. In the ZDesigner driver height and width are entered there. In the zebra universal, click paper output and enter the size.

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

There is specific coding you need to use to get it to work. Word documents add special characters to the batch files causing them not to printer properly.

You could try a merge to printer opertion in word and see if that will work. Make sure you to turn the printer on and off before attempting it to reset the control codes.
