How I can change fontname from epl programming language, There's a command for that, "ES", but I dont know how to use it. Can anyone give me a hand ? Thanks in advanced.


This is not the correct interpretation
To change character set for example in basic you shoud send
Print chr$(27);"A12";
with small character
Print chr$(27),"A01"
The ESC = Escape (27 decimal and 1B in hexadecimal).

Prints out 13 stickers with strange characters


Is this a 2844Z? the 2844 is an EPL printer and the 2844Z is a ZPL printer. Since your have described the printer as 2844 but mentioned that you are performing 3-flash proceedures, it sounds like you have installed the wrong driver. uninstall the driver and install the LP2844z driver so that you can send the correct print language to the printer. If this is not the case, then you need to clarify:
What is your model?
Details about the driver installed?
Firmware version of your printer?
Connectivity? (Serial, USB or Parlallel)?
What are the characters that are coming out on the page? ASCII -Extended?

Print command sent from scale indicator


Change driver setting from portrait to landscape in properties/printing preferences/options page and apply setting. Verify by printing a test page. If test page prints correctly and your application still prints in portrait mode you will have to find equinalent settings page within the application

Prints larger that print preview shows...


Firstly make sure your using the correct drive ZM400 rather than Z4M. if you are using the applications driver make sure of headers and footers sizes and the print area is set correctly. If your using odd sized lables download some new drivers from the Nice Label website, they are far more adjustable that the standard Zebra drivers.

An extra, blank label prints from a Zebra 2746e.


Check media settings in the printer driver. Check version of printer driver. Zebra printersuse an internal printer driver with their Zebra Designer software (Zdesigner driver) or a ZUD (Zebra Universal Driver) for other windows applications. These drivers can be downloaded directly from the zebra website.

Alternatively you can download the seagull scientific driver and use that instead. (used with bartender program)

Label skipping occurs if the media dimensions are not specified correctly. The important ones are label height, and media setting for type of media.

Perform a media calibration before you go changing settings. Power on printer, Hold top and bottom buttons in on control panel for 5 seconds, release bottom button only then when printer starts feeding labels release top button. When printer finishes press feed button.

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.
