Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

1 Answer

My Zebra TLP2844-z has stopped printing and the red light keeps flashing, I have checked that the labels are still ok, I use the thermal direct printing so I don't need a ribbon and everything is closed as normal. Any help would be great. Thanks

Same problem happening to me. I'm betting that the paper sensor (photocell) has gone out.

    same thing happened to me just now..and wiping the sensors clean with alcohol wipes did the trick. Maybe yours could work the same.
    best of luck

That issue can happen aswell if when sending a job to the printer with wrong settings, it will overrwrithe the previose settings of the printer.

My labels do not print clearly, I have a zebra TLP2844


Check the Ribbon type and adjust the darkness levels accordingly, Wax uses less heat and Resin uses more. Another thing to check is if you are using Direct Thermal Labels as this could cause a clarity problem. Also cleaning the Print head with Isopropyl Alcohol each time you change the ribbon will keep the head in good condition.

Every time I print a label, the label comes out.


Have a look at the way the driver is setup, by sound of it you might have it set for thermal transfer, it needs to be set to direct thermal. Thermal Transfer is for the TLP2844. the next time you print will send the changes to the printer

TLP2848Z blinking red, will not print


1: Is it a TLP2844 or a TLP2844Z.

Operationally they are completely different printers. TLP2844 uses ELP (Eltron Programming Language. but TLP2844Z uses ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). You need to calibrate the printer to the labels.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844. Load media. Connect power.
Hold down feed key, power on, count one, two, release feed key. The printer will go through a calibtation routine and print config label. IMPORTANT - When it prints this label you must press the feed key and see the message OUT OF DUMP. Your printer will now be calibrated. Check this by hitting the feed key a few times and printer will feed one label each time feed is hit.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844z.

Load media. Turn printer on and wait for green light (Approx 1 minute)
Press feed key and keep it pressed until green light blinks once, then twice, now release feed key.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label


Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

Zebra 2844 Not printing at all


Antztech,
if the red light is coming on and staying on, it might be a sensor problem. Try pushing on the lid and see if the light goes to green. If it does, it' s the gap sensor. This is how the printer "reads" the labels gaps-the little spaces between the labels. We've solve this in the short term by covering the sensor and manually setting the gap through the programming command prompt,

Zebra TLP 2844 Error Condition


Qusetion, Using USB my TLP2844 detects as a LP2844ps. Weird, huh? Also when I calibrate it the label does not stop at the perferation. When I print half goes on one label and the other half goes on the next label. Someone told me once there was a trick to get it to calibrate correctly. Anyone here know this? When I print a test page, it feed the correct amount of label.
