Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer
I have a printer that is having several problems. It should print the same information accross on 4 small lables. It does not print at all unless we increase the darkness to 30. Once we increase the darkness to 30 it prints only on the two at teh right of center. The last thing is it is not alinged. It will not print the label in the same place. It takes several times for it to print in the proper location.
For starters you need to calibrate your printer.
Note: If printing in Direct Thermal Mode, default the printer first (4 flashes).
1. Load the labels and ribbon (if used) and close the printer
2. Turn on the printer power.
3. Allow the printer to feed or error out.
4. Press and hold the feed button until the green status LED flashes once, then twice. Release the feed button.
6. The printer will set the media sensor for the label backing being used and then automatically feed until a label is positioned at the printhead.
7. A profile of the media sensor settings (similar to the example in Figure 1) will print. Upon completion, the printer will save the new settings in memory and the printer is ready for normal operation.
8. Press the feed button. One entire blank label will feed. If this does not happen, try defaulting (Hold the FEED button until it flashes 4 times)

I have the same problem, I am told the print head is clogged. there is several products on the market for cleaning them, but none of them seem to work for everyone. including mine.
I found a website selling new print heads for it, but its the same price as the printer was.
I'm throwing it out and buying a HP. which I should have in the first place.
