Lp 2844 will not work with my new laptop


You need a piece of software to create a Virtual com port, make sure you have the comms set correctly 9600, n, 8, 1 and print to that port, you will find it clearly marked in Device Manager. You can get a parallel to USB cable then you can use your driver set to LPT1

My printer and computer are not communicating at


If the software is installed for the printer, there is only two things you can do.

Plug a USB device that's already working into that port. If it's working, It'll install the driver.

If it's not working, try another port. Change your USB cable to another one. Also, in the BIOS, set the USB port to high speed.

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page


possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.

LP 2844 not working with Create-A-Label v3.04


If you are using CAL (Create A Label) you must have a device called a "Dongle" plugged into your parallel (or USB) port. This acts as the activation key for CAL. If there is no dongle then CAL only works in demo mode. That's why printer Icon stays grayed out. The "Dongle" normally plugs directly into the parallel port and one end of the parallel lead plugs into the "Dongle" while the other plugs into your printer.

I would suggest that you download "Zebra Designer" software from the Zebra Website..This will work without any activation.
If you use ZD you must use the correct ZDesigner driver. (Install automatically as part of ZD setup) This driver only works with ZD.


If you need to link to a database then you will have to BUY label software. Zebra Designer Pro, or Nicelabel, or Bartender....etc.

Zebra LP 2844 parallel communication problem


The printer is installed on the PC using a specific port. If it's installed on the USB port, it won't work on the parallel port. Do you have this printer installed 3 different times? Need more details such as how was it installed the first time? And if it's working on the other 2 ports, why does it have to work on the parallel?

UPS Thermal 2844 Connection problem(USB)


Add the printer as a Local LPT1. Then go into the properties and switch the port to a USB port. Try a test label. If it doesn't print, go back to properties of the printer and switch it to another USB until it does. If all else fails there is a remove utility included with the Zebra drivers you downloaded. You can remove all zebra related drivers and printers and then reboot. The PC should redetect the printer when you turn it on.
