Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

Several of my lp 2844's are printing everything in the middle of the label area and sometimes wrapping around, not printing the full width of the label. Other identical printers are working properly connected to the same print server and printing the same label formats. TIA, John

Manual calibration is recommended whenever you are using pre-printed media or if the printer will not correctly auto calibrate. 1. Make sure the printer power is off and that media is loaded. 2. Press and hold the feed button then turn on the printer power. 3. Continue to hold the feed button until the status light LED flashes. Release the feed button. 4. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used. After the printer is done making this adjustment, the roll will automatically feed until a label is positioned at the print head. 5. The configuration settings (similar to the example below) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and remain in diagnostic dump mode. 6. Press the feed button. The printer will dispense another label with the message "Out of DUMP" and be ready for normal operation.
Good luck!! EJ Kudelka

The printer prints one label and skips another one


First, I need to admit it. This is the worst printer I have ever used. I had all kond of troubles with it.
The skipping labels problem was my misery for 2 days to. I had to find out that my labels were falling out of the printing area generating a new page (label). Go back fix your width. Make sure your label fits one page (label). Print again. That's what I did. Good luck.

Just one of the double tags is printed on


I assume by double tags you mean 2 labels across the roll.
You need to tell your software that the roll is 2 across.
If using the software that comes with the printer, Zebra designer.
Set your label width to twice the single label and copy the barcode so that you have 2 across the label, then print

I channged the ribbon and the printer will not print tried several thing but it look like everything goes ok but there is nothing printed on the labels


Check that ribbon is installed correctly. Zebra ribbon only has ink on one side. ink side must be facing label. Use a label to check which side ink is on stick label onto ribbon and peel off.

Zebra LP 2844 spitting out blanks


Look at the stocks tab in the driver. There is an area in your print driver to adjust the width/height of the kind of label you are trying to use.

Prints out 2 labels at once


I've seen this be due to dirty sensor or misconfigured media setting.  Clean the sensor in the middle of the edge on the inside and outside of the printer, then if still having trouble - Inside the printer it should tell you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pages print some info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
You have just made it reconfigure media, and it may know when to stop feeding now.
