Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Hi - I've tried everything to get my Zebra LP2844 to print 4x6 USPS labels directly from Ebay...to no avail. They come out too small, turned the wrong way, etc. etc. Has anyone else had this problem...any idea how to fix. Drivers appear properly installed (I'm on Windows Vista), printer is communicating with computer, I have printer set as default - 4x6 in portrait mode. I just don't get it. Can you help? Thanks, Michael

On the Zebra it was printing 4x13 labels without a problem. However when I tried to print a 4x6 label it still thought there was 4x13 stock in the printer. I played around with the label format size, even...


I think this is more related to the calibration of the label each time you change the new label size. I use ZM400 and your printer should also have the same setting. Under setting, put the When Head Close setting to Calibration. This will let the calibration perform automatically when ever you load a new label size and close the print head. Well 2 label will be lost every time.

ZEBRA LP 2844 PRINTING PROBLEM IN USPS SHIPPING ASSISTANT


Are you sure that the page size is wrong, or are you just guessing because of the way that the label is printing? I would uninstall the driver - delete the printer from printers and faxes and remove the driver from Server Properties (in the file drop down in Printers and Faxes). Go to ups.zebra.com/ctp and get the latest driver - you have to have the UPS version of the driver in order to support pass-through printing. Go into your UPS Ship Asst application and make sure that the generic thermal is not checked.

We are in need of thermal printers and Zebra LP


The LP2844 can only print on Direct Thermal labels.

DT labels have the ink within the label and the labels react to heat. If these labels are to be exposed to direct sunlight they will eventually turn black.

Hint:
If you scrape the label with fingernail you can usually see the black ink on label

The physical size of the labels is this max width 1 inch (MInimum) to 4 inches (Max). Maximum length of label depends on the amount of memory in printer but maximum size for standard LP2844 is 11 inches. With full memory can be 22 inches long.

The labels must be on a 1 inch core.

These printer can handle all label types.

1: die cut Labels - Use gap sensing.*
2: Labels with Black mark on back - Use Black mark*
3: Continuous roll - select continuous *

* Select in printer driver media setting

Use the latest ZDesigner Driver V1.5.10
Download from Zebra Website.

Printer Preferences - Advanced Setup - Media Type.

Zebra LP2844 Thermal Printer won't print from a browser


I posted this problem last week and since that time discovered the problem (at least for me). I had to replace the HD and failed to update a current version of Java. Without Java in place I could call for it to print but the print job would disappear into thin air. After installing a current version of Java the machine began printing again and has worked perfectly.
