    I have a similar problem using a Zebra 170xiiiplus printer. Tech rep said I could print Word document by selecting File/Print and selecting the Zebra printer. The data light flashes, the label advances, but nothing is printed on the label. Please help.

Do NOT use the Zdesigner driver. Ensure that you select the Zebra printer driver or ZUD driver, which can be downloaded from zebra website. Go into the driver settings and select the correct label size. Print a windows test page to verify correct operation, Once the correct windows driver is installed you can then open any windows application, paint, word, excel...etc.. and print to your zebra printer. Do NOT use the Zdesigner driver.

There is specific coding you need to use to get it to work. Word documents add special characters to the batch files causing them not to printer properly.

You could try a merge to printer opertion in word and see if that will work. Make sure you to turn the printer on and off before attempting it to reset the control codes.

TLP2844 won't print


Hi David,

Default the printer so you have a green light.
Print a configuration label so you have the printer's settings.

Check the document you are trying to print.
If your "normal document" is using PCL, it won't print because you aren't speaking the printer's language.
Make sure you are using a Zebra driver and that the label/media settings match your printer. Look at your direct thermal/thermal transfer setting and your media length setting -- especially continuous vs. non-continuous.

This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.

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.

You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.
