My zebra TLP2844Z can not print because after fiew moments turn on the printer the light button becomes red. How to solv that?


A constant red light usually means the printer is out of ribbon or labels. It may just not recognize the size of the label so try a manual calibration to set the size.

1. turn the printer off
2. press and hold down the FEED button while turning on the printer
3. Keep holding down on FEED until the led flashed once, then let go
4. The printer will do an auto-calibration on the label.
When it's done, pressing FEED should advance 1 label. It's then ready to go.

Hope that helps !

Everytime I print a label it stops short of the


This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.

Prints out 13 stickers with strange characters


Is this a 2844Z? the 2844 is an EPL printer and the 2844Z is a ZPL printer. Since your have described the printer as 2844 but mentioned that you are performing 3-flash proceedures, it sounds like you have installed the wrong driver. uninstall the driver and install the LP2844z driver so that you can send the correct print language to the printer. If this is not the case, then you need to clarify:
What is your model?
Details about the driver installed?
Firmware version of your printer?
Connectivity? (Serial, USB or Parlallel)?
What are the characters that are coming out on the page? ASCII -Extended?

Hi can you help ? My zebra TLP 2824 printer keeps printing out of alignment. I reset the printer by holding the feed button while powering on but instead of printing dump info the label moves for a while...


If you are using a ribbon remove it and perform a calibration, hold down feed key for 2 seconds as you power on, release key and wait for it to complete its calibration, when it has stopped shifting labels (wait for 10 secs to be sure) HIT THE FEED KEY to exit dump mode. If it has successfully calibrated it will feed a label each time you hit feed key. Re-install ribbon, make sure ribbon is pushed formly onto drive sprockets and then re-run the calibration..

If this does not fix problem. download firmware to latest version. This will automatically reset printer to factory default condition.

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.

Everytime I turn my Zebra TLP 2844-Z printer on,


The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but the printer has to be told by the driver not to expect ribbon or the red light will come on. Also not having the correct paper height set in the driver will make the red light come on as well so check the advanced tab in the properties of the driver then click printing defaults. In the ZDesigner driver height and width are entered there. In the zebra universal, click paper output and enter the size.

Zebra Printer TLP 2844-Z - Will not print from application - prints SM 10 53 4D


Hold the feed button while turning on the printer. After a config label prints, turn the printer off and then on again, and try printing again.

Also, make sure the lid is closed far enough to engage the lid sensor. If the red light comes on again, press down a bit on the lid, hit the feed button and try to print again.

Verify that the ribbon fits into position, back and forth. You can also calibrate the label by pressing the button while powering up the printer and release the button.
