You must make sure that the ribbon is compatible with the label you are attempting to print on. It must be a permanent resin. We use the AXR7+ material. Try to avoid using such a high printer head temperature as this will reduce the life of the head.

The printer driver should be set to Continuous or it will think it is still Gap or Black Mark. Please adjust accordingly

Everytime I turn my Zebra TLP 2844-Z printer on,


The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but the printer has to be told by the driver not to expect ribbon or the red light will come on. Also not having the correct paper height set in the driver will make the red light come on as well so check the advanced tab in the properties of the driver then click printing defaults. In the ZDesigner driver height and width are entered there. In the zebra universal, click paper output and enter the size.

Solid red light. This indicates the printer is in an error state and will not print until the error is cleared. Check to make sure the printer is not out of labels or out of ribbon if it is a TLP model.
A solid red light will occur if
  • the printer is out of labels
  • the printer is out of ribbon ( TLP models only )
  • the printhead is open, not latched down all the way. Press down on the top cover of the printer to see if the error light clears and goes to green.

TLP2844 does not support Line mode.

but the LP2844 does.

If you neeed to use line mode change your printer. from TLP2844 to LP2844.

I had this issue last week.

Light is red and not green


There may be several causes to this problem.
1/ The lid of the printer needs to be firmly shut before the Red light changes to Green.
2/ If the ribbon has come to the end then the red light will come on, change the ribbon.
3/ If you have changed label size and not recalibrated the printer to the label then the RED will come on.
Any error within the printer will bring the RED light on.

Verify that the ribbon fits into position, back and forth. You can also calibrate the label by pressing the button while powering up the printer and release the button.

Solid red light after flashing firmware


These are the 3 things listed as being wrong for the status light being solid red:
1. Media is out. Reload a new supply. Press feed button to
continue.
2. Power-up failure. Switch power OFF then back ON.
3. Printer ready to receive flash programming during
firmware download.


There's a programming manual available for download on Zebra's website: https://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html
It might help.
