Turn the printer off.

Release the thermal print head from the platen.

Insert the stock into the printer so that the label is below the printhead and resting above the rubber roller.

Close the thermal printhead so that it is resting on top of the paper.

Some models may have a switch on the printer to switch from transfer roller or thermal. Make sure it is set for thermal.

Turn the printer on.

Load up you UPS software. If this is a first time installation and you are using software from UPS, you may have to tell it in the printer setup setting what printer you are using so that the form settings can be transferred to the printer.

LATELY WHEN PRINTING ON THE DATAMAX I-4212 THE LABELS MOVE TO THE SIDE EVEN THOUGH THE MEDIA GIDE IS IN PLACE.


If the media is trying to walk to the side there is too much head pressure on that side. Adjust the green knobs on top of the print head. Lessen the pressure on the side it is trying to go or add pressure to the other to balance the head pressure.

When i try print the label..no output at the label..how to test whether the ink is function or not


I'm including this link to the users manual:

http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html

But here is the basic troubleshooting info for that issue

No print on the label.The media may not be direct thermal media when printing without ribbon (i.e. thermal
transfer). See the test procedure

Determining Thermal Media Types on page 29.
• For thermal transfer printers, the media may not be outside wound or approved for use in
the G-Series printer. See the following ribbon test procedures: Ribbon Test with Adhesive
on page 32

and Ribbon Scratch Test on page 33.
• Is the media loaded correctly? Follow the instructions for

Loading Roll Media on page 11
in the Getting Started section. For printing using transfer ribbon, see

Loading Transfer Ribbon
on page 14.

Locate your printer driver under devices and printers Right click on it and select "Printing Preferences"

Choose the "Advanced Setup" tab

Change media type to "Direct Thermal"

Be sure that "use printer settings" is NOT selected at the top left

Click OK and you should be good.

Note that any labels created prior to this change will need to be changed inside each label under the label setup.

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

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.

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.

Media settings for thermal labels


The size of the labels you wont have to tell. In the control panel of the printer you will have to tell it to print thermal and that will turn the film transfer roller off.

You may have to tell it the size though in the software you are using.

PLEASE HELP - Labels are printing in the wrong direction


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

Thermal Ribbon has a wrinkle


The thermal print head is damaged. You can try to clean it with a thermal printer head cleaner. That will only help if it is just clogged up with thermal print ink.

Wont print


Check to make sure you have direct thermal labels. You can test this by scratching your fingernail across the label quickly. You should see a black line. This printer uses the same paper as a ups or fedex label. test a ups of fedex label with the fingernail test. Does it look the same? or call Andrew @ 908-725-1699
