Switch the printer on with the buttons feed and pause pressed.Press feed to display Sensor adjust. Press pause until transmissive is displayed. With the liner in the cells press on restart until a star is displayed next to the value (around 4.7V) press Pause the calibration is finished. In my opinion, you should check the size of your label and the distance between the labels (label gap) and also check that you have selected the correct detection (Transmissive for gap or relective for black mark)

Paper gap sensor


Ok, this is easily solved in 3 different ways

1) Driver: Download the greatest driver I know, the one developed by the NiceLabel guys: www.nicedrivers.com
you need to go on right click in te driver(Start/Control panel/TEC Toshiba...) choose properties. In options you will have the chance to verify the gap mode(continous/black mark/ etc). You can also calbrate your printer from there.

2) If your printer needed to calibrate, turn-it off, then, by holding the feed button, turn-it on and let go after 3 seconds, or after you see a light. It will calibrate automatically with your label size at that moment, it may also print the printer settings, so be prepared for stoping the baby.

3) If you have a barcode software(did i say I reccomend NiceLabel?), you can set the instructions on 1) directly from printer settings.

Good luck, peace.

There is usually a setting in your label software or printer driver that lets you choose between thermal transfer printing or direct thermal printing. Make sure your setting is on direct thermal.

Hope that helps !

Paper jam error message


This problem is a detection problem, due to a bad sensor selection or incorrect label size.

If the labels are white labels with a separation between each, select TRANSMISSIVE. If the labels are preprinted, select the TRANSMISSIVE PREPRINTED LABELS and set the threshold doing this.

With the printer in ONLINE, press PAUSE once, the message PAUSE appears in the display, press and hold on the PAUSE key, TRANSMISSIVE is displayed, release the key and press PAUSE until labels starts to feed, let feed some labels (5 or 6) and release the key. Press Restart and start to print.

Zebra 2746e will skip leaving a blank label while printing.


You need to calibrate. Hold down the feed key while powering the printer on, then let go. The printer will calibrate, print a config label, then fo into dump mode. Press the fee key again to go out of dump. Of your issue persists, there could be a problem with yoru media, or with the commands that you are sending to the printer.

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.
