Question about Zebra LP 2844 Thermal Printer

1 Answer

2 LABELS COME OUT

EVERY TIME I PRINT A SHIPPING LABEL FROM MY LP2844

TWO LABELS COME OUT BEFORE THE MACHINE STOPS.

IT PRINTS ONLY ON THE 1ST LABEL.

BUT THEN I HAVE TO GET UP AND REWIND THE LABELS BACK ONE

SO AS NOT TO LOSE THAT LABEL

 

I HAVE TRIED TO RESOLVE THIS IN ALMOST EVERY WAY I CAN THINK OF, FROM RECONFIGURING THE PRINTER TO TRYING DIFFERENT LABEL LAYOUTS

Your label length is set incorrectly, there are 2 things it could be
1) your software is telling the printer the label length is longer then the current labels, even if the label size is out my a single millimeter the printer will give you this issue of feed an extra label. you need to change this in your software. you can set a label size smaller then the current label size and it will work correctly

2) you software is not setting a label length and so the printer is going off its internal setting, to recalibrate hold feed and power up the printer letting go after the light starts flashing

it is important to note that label roll will change slightly over time so even though you are ordering the same labels as a year ago the manufacturer will have slight changes from batch to batch

Zebra LP2844 pulls labels in before printing


Yes, first of all, it is necessary that the labels are pulled backward (other wise you could not print on the upper part of the label). It appears from time to time that it is a problem - generated by the label itself. Try to use a different label (of size and material) to see if the behavior changes ...
Good luck.

You can recalibrate it to read the label size by doing the following.

Power off the printer
Hold down the green button
Turn the printer on and about 1/2 second after turning it on, release the green button
It will print out some information and measure the label. Once it stops, hit the green button one last time and then try to print another label.

Zebra LP2844 printer prints garbage


Sounds like you might be using a bad driver, or the printer is in dump mode.
Try hitting the green button and see if it says exiting dump.
If still having trouble, inside the printer it tells you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pagessome info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
This process re-reads the label length (so only do it with the labels you want to use in, or it will waste labels until you do it again with those in it) - but I'm suggesting it only because it enters and exits dump mode (which I have read can cause the garbage when you try to print).
