Hi, I just installed a TLP2844 and ran the Dump to ensure it was in Page mode. I created a file from the documentation example (B10,10,0,3,3,7,200,B,"998152-001") but when I print it, the label comes out "as is" rather than with the barcode interpreted. (so it just prints B10,10 ... etc)

Re: TLP 2844 won't print barcodes
The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode: Turn printer power off. Hold the feed button while turning printer power on. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button. When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button. When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button. When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed. Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.
This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
Hi. To use the B,1,2, etc settings you must have the printer as a "generic / text only" If not, windows tries to print system fonts..
To print a label: open driverproperties find the tab for "barcode" create a barcode "name" and select what barcode and settings it should match. The "name" now shows up on your client as a dummy font, select in word or any other windows application and you print a barcode.

To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps. 1. turn the power off 2. hold the feed button down 3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button. 4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button. 5. turn the power off. 6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.
The first thing I would do is to default the printer then run a width calibration. The instruction are in the user's manual that should have come with the printer. If the instruction did not come with the printer I can provide the instruction.
