This issues looking printer head problem. check the following Steps for cleaning printer head :

Click on the Start button if you have Windows XP. If you have Windows Vista, click the Windows icon that resides in the lower left corner of your computer screen.

Click on "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware." Finally click on "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers."

Right-click on the name of your printer and choose "Printing Preferences." This should open a new window; next look for a tab or button marked Maintenance, or something similar.

Find the button that says "Print heads" or "Clean the Print heads" and click on it. You may be asked to choose which print heads; choose them all if you are. Make sure there is paper and ink in your printer, and that it is turned on ahead of time.

Take out the page your printer has printed and see if there are any grids or boxes missing. If there aren't, then you can just exit the program--your print heads are not clogged. If there are grids missing, then click on the "Cleaning" or similarly worded button.

Once the cleaning process has completed, print another page to be sure that your print heads are no longer clogged. If they are still clogged, repeat Steps 1-5 until your printer is printing clearly. or get more help for Zebra Printers.

Zebra LP2844 pulls labels in before printing


Yes, first of all, it is necessary that the labels are pulled backward (other wise you could not print on the upper part of the label). It appears from time to time that it is a problem - generated by the label itself. Try to use a different label (of size and material) to see if the behavior changes ...
Good luck.

Cannot print multiple copies


Is the printer set for label taken, if it is then it is waiting for the sensor to see the label is gone before printing the next one. Apart from that, check the settings in the driver and make sure it is all set correctly

Only every fourth label Prints


We've been having problems with ours. Make sure that the properties are correctly set, landscape, portrait, 180' rotation, label size, on the printer properties. Then check again through whatever package you are using 'printer properties' and try a print. You may have to re-enter properties each time you print.
