Question about Computers & Internet

I was using the UPS LP 2844 on another computer and it was working fine for Zebra Designer-even though it's supposed to only work for UPS. I got a new computer and now I can't get it to work for UPS or Zebra Designer. Can you help?

You don't mention if you try to configure the UPS printer to a network or directly connected to the new computer?

If directly install, Try to check the operating system compatibility of the UPS printer and maybe it is not support with the new computer.

If you are configuring it to a network printer, use the IP address to detect the printer and set it up. Once it find, it will install the required driver for your printer. make sure the operating system is compatible.

I have Zebra LP 2844-Z printer and the barcodes

Here are 3 suggestions.

Check that your label size definition is correct, measure your label height in mm and check that your printer driver settings match.

Perform a calibration. How?? when printer is on labels loaded and green light, hold feed key and wait for 2 blinks then release feed key. (If you release it after 1 flash you will print a configuration label)

If you are using Zebra Designer, download latest version of Zdesigner V2. Install latest printer driver V2.63. This driver & Zdesigner allows you to calibrate the printer directly from within Zdesigner. Go to File/Printer settings/ advanced options and click calibrate at bottom of page. when printer calibrates then tick the box USE PRINTER SETTINGS and printer will now work properly.

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page

possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.

LP 2844 not working with Create-A-Label v3.04

If you are using CAL (Create A Label) you must have a device called a "Dongle" plugged into your parallel (or USB) port. This acts as the activation key for CAL. If there is no dongle then CAL only works in demo mode. That's why printer Icon stays grayed out. The "Dongle" normally plugs directly into the parallel port and one end of the parallel lead plugs into the "Dongle" while the other plugs into your printer.

I would suggest that you download "Zebra Designer" software from the Zebra Website..This will work without any activation.
If you use ZD you must use the correct ZDesigner driver. (Install automatically as part of ZD setup) This driver only works with ZD.

If you need to link to a database then you will have to BUY label software. Zebra Designer Pro, or Nicelabel, or Bartender....etc.
