TLP 2844 won't print barcodes

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)

Thanks,

    TLP 2844 won't print barcode labels. I have tried reseting the printer and even tried another TLP 2884. I have the latest drivers from the Zebra site and still not having much luck. It will print out the label except the barcode shows numbers instead of a barcode. Any ideas?

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.

Hi I am printing barcode labels on a Zebra Tlp2844-Z. I can print resident barcodes in passthrough mode using the old Zebra driver (1.0.0.43) but the barcode does not print using the ZDesigner driver...

Have you tried creating the barcode / label using the ZDesigner software? It is available free on their website and I'm sure you'll find it easy to use. Hope this helps!

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.

Hi, I am having Zebra TLP 2844 barcode printer.I have installed the printer in my machine. I have tried to take barcode labels.From application, for each and every label i need to generate the label in PDF...

The TLP2844 can print from any windows application providing the application can use a windows printer driver.
The page size oof the .pdf needs to be the same size as the physical label size.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label

Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

TLP 2844 skips over labels

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.

Zebra TLP2844 Prints Centered and Half the Width

create a word template document with the page size the same size as the label. Set the margins to 0 and fill the label up with text. This should make the printer print right the way over the bale.
