Question about Zebra Eltron Orion LP2443 Thermal Printer

2 Answers

The print out aligned left on Zebra LP2443 Orion

We have a Zebra Elron Orion LP2443, thermal printer. It works but only the right part is printed on the left side. It's like the printers center (left corner start) has lost it's position.
Tried the latest driver for the LP2443 (in ZUD55725.exe) but then it prints about 30 labels of junk. Driver installed that always before worked is the V397A.exe and the printer running on a parallelport on a Netgear networkprinter (with others printer that works).

If I could adjust the left/right position on the printer everything would be fine.

Kim, sorry there is no left/right adjustment on the 2443 printer, The alignment must be set in both your label design program and in your choosen printer driver. The Zebra ZUD universal drivers are not the best, we always use the drivers found at seagullscientific.com. If you are still experiencing problems after using these drivers, contact me at www.lancerlabels.co.uk

If you can tick rotate 180° in your driver then this should solve your problem

DO I need the software for the zebra eltron lp2443 printer pluse the driver


The only software you need for the LP2443 is the driver from http://www.seagullscientific.com/aspx/thermal_printer_list.aspx#Zebra

Install this driver, then you can use any windows application that uses win drivers.

Or you can download Zebra designer software to design labels from

Deleted printer in error then added can not get correct driver? Will not print just feed.


This is a unsupported printer to zebra at this point so no driver is on the website anymore. Here is a link to a driver that will work.

Won't print


This printer is Thermal Direct (DT) only (ie it does not use a ribbon, the paper is thermally sensitive).

Check your labels are DT material by quickly running the edge of your fingernail across the surface. If it leaves a black mark then it is the right material, if no mark then it is not the right material, contact a label reseller for DT labels.

I have always downloaded them from their website at zebra.com. Never ran into one that I couldn't find. If you know where it was purchased from they might be of help.

Prints only part of label


Fixed problem. Labels were too thin so LED was still being detected to stop progress of labels. Fixed by sticking some backing paper over the sensor and seems to be working fine.

I can't find a driver for my ELTRON LP2443PSA thermal label printer. Please help


Please send me an e-mail to: kserge1@hotmail.com

With the subject line: Eltron Orion LP2443 PSAT Label Printer, and I will be more than glad to help you.

If you will use this subject line, then it will be easier for me to identify that the message that you are going to send me is NOT spam message. Because I get a lot of junk mail per day. Which is about 75% of the total e-mail's that I get in my inbox every day. And usually I do not have time to go through reading all of my messages, so if the message title will look suspicious, or all capital letters, or all small letters, than I may flag your message as "Spam".

I have the same exact printed which I also bought at the end of January, 2009, which I originally received without any drivers at all, but after I spend a lot of time looking, and with hard work, I finally found the correct drivers that I use for this same exact Thermal Label Printer.

Also, just a suggestion: If you are going to use this printer for shipping online, then you can go to www.UPS.com, and get free Thermal Shipping Labels to use with UPS shipping service.

Currently, I have 2 completely compatible working drivers for this label printer. 1 of the drivers is for Windows 2000, or earlier systems, and the other driver is for Windows XP, or later operating systems. I use the second driver, with Windows Vista, and I have no problems using my Thermal Label Printer.

Therefore, I do not remember where I exactly downloaded the 2x drivers for this Thermal Label Printer, and do not have enough time to upload them online, because I am very busy, but, I do have 2x of the drivers downloaded on my computer, in it's own folder, that I can upload later on to some online file sharing site, like www.mediafire.com.

So, if you still need the drivers for this Thermal Label Printer, please send me an e-mail, and I will be more than glad to help you with both getting the drivers, and if I will have time, or if it won't take me very long time, Installing this Thermal Label Printer on your computer.


Hope I could help you. Thank you very much.
