Ok 2 things either your firmware is outdated or your driver... i do have the same problems due to my driver is not correct...plus when i updated the driver i forgot to set printing orientation and paper size


first go to
http://www.seagullscientific.com/aspx/thermal_95.aspx
scroll down to zebra click download
then install it
you will see 2 printer in your printer and fax in control panel

right click on the LP2844 (not the Zdesign LP2844)
select printing preference

go to page setup tab
choose 4x6 from the drop down menu in(stock)

then apply
also dont forget to go to option to set the darkness uncheck the use current printing setting
go for 12- 14 the default setting is to light sometime might not scan..by usps...


since everytime you updated the driver ...your setting might go on default...that why you'll need to go back and reset the printing pref...

after i did it ...the stamp.com doen't have problem at all

Hp laserjet 3055 has error message on copying "50 fuser error, turn off then on". Restarting brings on the same message when copying.


The all-in-one has experienced an internal hardware error.

1. Turn off the power by using the power switch, and then wait at least 30 seconds.
2. If a surge protector is being used, remove it. Plug the all-in-one directly into the wall socket.
3. Check the cabling connections to the heating element.
4. Turn on the power and wait for the all-inone to initialize.
5. If, the error persists, replace the fuser.
NOTE The device power mustremain off for at least 20 minutes forthe fuser to cool down and correctly reset.
Turn off the power switch, wait at least 20 minutes, and then use the power switch to turn on the all-in-one and wait for it to initialize.

What does error Oxc05d0281 mean


Hi,

This error message means" ink system failure " and to resolve this issue please follow these troubleshooting steps:

Unplug the printer and wait 30 seconds for power to discharge.
2. Plug in the printer.
3. Hold the CANCEL and OK buttons simultaneously, and keep them depressed while you hit the ON button. This resets the printer.
4. When the printer turns on, if you still get the error message, it's OK. Then perform the steps listed

1?Press and hold the “*” key
2?Press the “#” key and release both keys,Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
3?Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons
4?Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
5?Press and release the “OK” button.
6?Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure
7?Press and release the “OK” button.
8?Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
9?Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
10?Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
11?Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
12?Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
13?Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

After you perform the steps listed above, when you are at the step at the end where you are pressing the cancel button until you get to the WELCOME screen, if at some point you see a message, “Inproper shutdown, hit OK”, go ahead and hit OK and the Welcome screen should appear.
One thing that is nice about this method is that it doesn't use up all your ink doing a recalibration.
The error message should not pop up so try to print a self test Press Setup menu on the All-in-One then scroll using the arrow key and select Print Report then select Self Test Report.

all the best
