Which it shouldn't be doing.
Example:

Should only be printing TEST TEST TEST at position 20,20.

Your in line mode instead of page mode.

  1. Turn printer power off.
  2. Press and hold the feed key, then turn power back on.
  3. When light starts to flash, release finger from feed key.
  4. When light starts to flash again, press and hold the feed key until the light turns red (or amber), then release finger from feed key.
  5. Wait for light to turn solid and press feed key once.
  6. Check to make sure you are in the correct printer mode by printing a configuration label (Click here for configuration label example - Note item C).

Why is the text printing on Zebra LP 2844-Z label incorrectly spaced?


Zebra printers are not really made to print PDF files, if the only option is PDF I'd recommend switching to print on a laser. Also open the PDF and see if they are correct in the original doc

Confuse about which drivers need to install for my lp2824 plus? ZPL or EPL? What's the difference between those? When to use ZPL and when to use EPL?


Hi,
EPL & ZPL are both printer script languages. If the label of your printer has the extension "Z" for ZPL (eg: 2844z-10320-0001) - then use the ZPL Driver.
If the product code has not the extension "Z" (eg: 2844-10320-0001) the unit has the EPL Engine.

How do I get Fedex label printer to print from other programs??


eack software have diferent wais to talk with the printer,
or send the comands to the printer (zpl files) and like this, he can send the printer configuration direcly, or can use setings from the driver.
if you go to Printer and Fax, right click on the printer driver, go to "properties" and print the test-page.
If print text plus the windows logo, that meens the printer is comunicate, now the rest is with the each software.

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.
