Question about Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label Printer

2 Answers

Will not print on all four lables, and does not print in the same place each time.

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)

How do I align my Citizen CLP 7202e Lable printer print head to align with the lables? Currently it starts printing low on the lable and thus the last 1-2 lines print over onto the next lable


Adjust vertical offset in printer properties. If that doesn't fix it, adjust it under "advanced". Or... you can set the offset in the printer itself. Hold down the left two buttons at the same time. Cycle through the settings until you get to vertical offset.

you need to calibrate. hold the feed button down intill it flashes 4 times in a row and the quickly let go. it will feed some labels to calibrate and should stop at the tear off. you also have to set label size in the driver to keep from losing calibration.

When Printing labels the printer starts to soon and bottom lables are cut in half?


After you press print the window pops up with printing preferences, select preferences and tell the printer you are printing labels, it will allow more time for the label to reach the start position and start at the right place on the label sheet.

Turn off the printer and place your finger on the green feed button. With the button depressed, turn the printer back on. Let the light flash2.gif (ONLY!) four times and release the button. Printer will cycle through 2-3 labels. Press the feed button one more time.
You've just set the printer back to factory default and dumped whatever settings where mucking it up.
If this doesn't fix you, it is an issue between the software you are using (? what kind is it?) and the printer driver.

PRINT WILL NOT STAY ALIGNED ON EACH LABEL-RUNS ONTO NEXT LABEL


Check the tension on the Ribbon Take-up Spindle there is a nut on it that sometimes can loosen or tighten its self and will throw off the lables. Its a nut that has a of couple Hex nuts on the corner, screw the nut to about the 3rd thread from the top of the bolt facing you then tighten the hex nuts on the corners of the nut. Then try printing the labels make sure the media guide also is set to the lable size that is installed.

Printing not centered


Check the width of the label format.
Normally this printer will center the printing automatically when it receives the instruction to change the coordinates

Printer prints blank pages


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.
