Question about Zebra Eltron LP 2824 Thermal Printer

PLEASE HELP - Labels are printing in the wrong direction

I have the LP2824 set up on my Tool Setting machine. It's printing in the wrong direction. Printing across the labels instead of printing lengthwise, "with the label direction".

    The printer is directly hooked to the Zoller Tool Setter and not to the Computer. So any computer functions done, do not affect the printer.

The ups site ahs a solution to your problem. You need to send a ZT command to the printer to reverse direction
The easiest way to do it is to open the printers properties and go to the advanced tab go to Printing Defaults then select Tools then tools again and a window will popup. Enter ZT and press enter. The Send button should now be enabled. Click on it. DO NOT touch anything else. Close all windows and try printing . If this is not the direction you want , rod and this time enter the ZB then enter. There are only 2 commands ZT and ZB

Good luck

My zebra z4mplus printer loads all the labels on the roll and when load the labels in the printer and turn the machine on. How can I make the printer stop loading after one label comes out?

I think your printer is set to print on Continuos media. If you use gap labels, you will need to set the printer from the menu on NOT CONTINUOS, then save the setting. In some cases the software or driver is the one who controls this setting. So you will need to change directly in the printer driver. You will find this option on the General tab (click Properties then) and Advanced tab (click on Printing Defaults). There you will have a list with printing parameters like speed, darkness, media type. Adjust as you need to fulfill your request. But first change directly to the printer, accessing the menu from control panel.

I am trying to print but seems to be out of ink because the labels are coming out blank. There is nothing in manual about print heads or ink. I am thinking I need to replace something and I don't know what...

LP2824 is a direct termical printer, does not use ink of any kind, it means that it requires a special paper for it to print, printhead burns the special paper in specific areas to show the pattern, if you are sure that you are using that special paper and it keeps not printing, is very posible that the printhead need to be clean up or replaced.

In the barcode printer showing ribbon out. I change the print method from " THERMAL TRANSFER TO DIRECT TO DIRECT THERMAL " and saved. Again come the same problem RIBBON OUT. How I solve the problem....

You need to change the print method from thermal transfer to direct thermal. There are three places to do this:
- on the printer itself - in the printer driver (this will override the setting in the printer and be the default setting for any new labels crested) - in the print properties of a specific label (this will override the two settings previously listed) The last option works best if you are switching label stock or ribbon in and out for different labels.

Will print on sticker labels, but not on thick price ticket paper

If you are not using ribbon, the tickets are probably not Direct thermal. Try using a Ribbon and see if it works

Labels spitting out, but blank

sounds like you have thermal transfer labels in the printer, you need direct thermal labels.

expose the labels to some heat and see if they turn black, you can do this by quickly running your finger nail across the labels. if they don't blacken then you have the wrong labels.
