    We've having the same issue with a few of ours. To make things even more confusing, it seems to be the printers themselves- if you push the green button to advance the roll it also spits out a bunch of blanks.



    I'm guessing the little IR sensor that detects label gaps is screwed up (since this behavior takes place even without the USB cable hooked up- so no drivers) but it's going to be hard to prove.

    My printer won't even print a label, every time I turn it back on, it just starts spitting out blanks and won't stop, have either of you found the solution, I would really like my labeler to work again.

Zebra eltron LP 2824 printing too light


This could simply be old direct thermal labels. Direct thermal labels have a shelf life of about 1 year from the date of manufacture. After that time has lapsed the thermal coating on the labels begins to dissipate and this will cause labels to print light or faded. You can trouble shoot with a roll known to be fresh. You can get one free here to test Labeldomain com .

Printer TLP2824 thermal printer prints too many labels. Prints one and then spits two more out(blank).


Clean media sensors. The blank labels are a result of the printer trying to calibrate label length.

Don't shoot it, they're too hard to cook.

Make sure your program is set for the label size you're using. Also, there is a photo eye under the paper path that picks up the labels. It will, in time come out of adjustment. It can be cleaned with a swab and alcohol.

Prints half of label


Restart your computer. Turn your printer off and back on again. Restart your software for printing lables. When updating the printer drivers, all software needs to be restarted to make sure that the form controls are working properly.

Labels spitting out, but blank


sounds like you have thermal transfer labels in the printer, you need direct thermal labels.

expose the labels to some heat and see if they turn black, you can do this by quickly running your finger nail across the labels. if they don't blacken then you have the wrong labels.
