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.

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.
