Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

We have two of three of these printers all connected the same way and one consistently but sporadically will not print. We have to disconnect all cables and shut everything down and then plug all back in and it will work for a while. The network cables and connectors have been replaced at both ends and the ports have been changed about and there is no change. The printer has actually been moved to another location and the same thing does not happen.

Clinic211, Will a "known good" 2844 work or will it too "develop" same "no print" hang-up symptom when connected at the same location where original problem occured? How far from the "HUB" is the port that is causing the problem? The ZEBRA corp is 17 to 20 minutes drive from me and located in Vernon Hills Illinois USA. 12fixlouie

Computer says unable to communicate with printer : if using firewall unblock UDP port 427..I'm not sure how to do this. This problem occurs sporadically..sometimes the printer works, sometimes it doesn't


Most of the times just skipping that message will let you use the printer. That message is something that has to do with the printer rediscovery just incase the printer get's disconnected.
Checking with your anti virus software provider might help.
Regarding that message though. Try skipping that and try printing.
The printer should work.

2170W wireless connection to mac computers


My suggestion would be to connect an ethernet cable from the printer to the router. This is a more stable connection for the printer on the network.

All of your wireless computers will be able to connect to it and print to it as long as they are connected to the network.

To get the printer back in wired mode, you will need to reset the printer and network card of the printer.

1. Turn off power
2. Hold down go Button while switching back on
3. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 8 times quickly
4. Wait for the unit to finish warming up
5. Repeat steps 1 and 2
6. Wait 2 secondes before letting go and press the go button 7 times quickly this time
7. Wait for the unit to finish warming up then plug in the ethernet cable.

My HP Photomart 8450 prints in black sporadically.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Reverse printing


Have you found a solution for this problem??   I have the same problem; happens sporadically but once it happens there's no fix.  With the particular page I am printing I can't get it to correct itself. I thought at first it was associated with Classic apps but that wasn't consistent.  I just printed from Safari on a wireless iBook and this page is also reversed.  Extremely frustrating!!!!!
Thanks.
