The printer will print one label correctly, then feed out a blank one. when the next label is printed, the printer reverse feeds the blank label into the printer to print the next one, but not far enough...


This sounds like a size issue, meaning that your label has too many lines and that kicks to the "next page".

MY ZEBRA LP 2844-Z IS PRINTING BLANK, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Since the LP2844 is a direct thermal printer, the first thing to check is to make sure you have direct thermal labels - regular label stock won't work. Just quickly scrape your thumbnail across the label, the friction will cause a black line if the label is direct thermal.

Having problems with printer margins. It will print the first label correctly then the next 4 or 5 it will mess up the margins and print out on two labels


You Have to set label size in the printers driver. A hundred diferent label sizes can be used but the driver must know the size to layout the bitmap correctly

Goto printers and faxes then right click on your zebra printer driver. Left click properties and then left click the advanced tab, then left click printing defaults button. In the zebra designer driver size is on this page. The Zebra Universal driver you click a few levels deeper by clicking paper output then paper size. If your size is not listed in the drop down arrow then click customize, then highlight user defigned on the upper left off the screen and enter your correct label size.

Printing solid black across the label.


Sounds like a defective printhead.

Reinstall the old one to see if the problem remains or not.

Poor Quality (black line)


Check the temperature settings. If all of the text and barcode is clear and not fuzzy, check the platten roller for low areas, cuts, or other deformity.
