Zebra 220 All media feeds out when printer turned on

I am having trouble with the Zebra 220 model printer at my company(I'm sure it's user error). I have just changed the media from a tear off media with a gap to a continuous feed media that has to be cut. When I turn on the printer it runs through it's checks and displays it's IP address but then here is where the problem starts: The media will feed automatically and will not stop until I turn the printer off. I thought if I could change the media type in setup that would fix it but I can't get to the setup before this starts happening. Any advice would be helpful.

Go into the printer set up and turn off all the motions to no on power up, head up.
Change the stock type to continuous.
The unit will not calibrate when started, but should take the label size you send it when you send the format.

1.Double check that the ribbon and the labels are routed correctly. 2.Make sure the media guide is holding the labels against the inside of the printer and not moving to the right away from the media sensor. If the labels are sliding to the right as they come out, increase the left side head pressure on top with a flat blade screw driver. Download the user manual at zebra.com .Check the media type and sensor type, and set for thermal transfer if using a ribbon.

TLP 2844-Z is faded on the right half when it prints


It probably needs a print head adjustment or calibration.
Here is a link for the user guide,(it takes a minute to load and display) you will find cleaning and diagnosing tips :
http://www.systemsprintmedia.co.uk/downloads/ZEBRA%20TLP%202844Z%20MANUAL.pdf

If your zebra label printer is not feeding to the next label correctly it may need to be calibrated. Follow these steps to calibrate the printer:
  1. Turn off printer and have media loaded (on older Transports, with no ON/OFF switch, remove battery).
  2. Hold feed button down, and turn printer back on (on older Transports, re-insert battery) while holding down the feed button.
  3. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button.
  4. Printer light will turn green and advance a few blanks.
  5. After printer stops advancing and prints the internal information, press the feed button one time.
  6. You will get another label with the “Out of Dump” message on it.
  7. Printer is now ready for use.

Zebra LP2844 printer prints garbage


Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).

Prints out 2 labels at once


I've seen this be due to dirty sensor or misconfigured media setting.  Clean the sensor in the middle of the edge on the inside and outside of the printer, then if still having trouble - Inside the printer it should tell you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pages print some info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
You have just made it reconfigure media, and it may know when to stop feeding now.

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.

Error printer zebra 220


Recalibrate. Sometimes the LED is too strong and it will show through the paper or the sensor is damaged. People will jam screwdrivers in there to get the label out. This sensor is found where the label first goes into the rollers.
