Zebra 6M Plus Shows "Checking Onboard Flash"

It sounds like there may be an issue with the onboard flash memory on your printer. Try performing a factory reset (hold down the pause and cancel buttons during startup) to see if that clears the problem. If not, you may need to contact Zebra customer support for further assistance.

Labels sticking to ribbon

If I had a guess...this label material sounds old or stored improperly...possibly to much head pressure....I would suggest some known good material and retry.

Zebra LP 2844 printer will not print anything but the test page

possibly not a real LP2844 but an LP2543, a printer mass produced for and used by UPS. refurbishers change the label and sell as LP2844 because they are almost identical.
if it has an AC-AC adapter, it is an LP2543. LP2844 uses a AC-DC adapter, and all LP2844's have USB ports.

Hi There How do you print a test page from the

Printing the "PAUSE" test will print a nice black box that will show white lines or voids for any printhead elements that are not functioning. Turn the printer off, press and hold the PAUSE key while turning on the printer. After 5-6 seconds, let go of PAUSE and let the power up self test finish.

The test label will starting printing. To stop, press PAUSE. This is also usefull for seeing the "parallelism" of the printhead by looking at the lines that print at the begining of each label. Should be the same number of lines on the left as the on the right.

Easiest way to cancel the pattern is to cycle power.

Hope that helps !

Zebra LP 2844 doesn't stop feeding paper

I had the very same problem but I know it could be several different reasons. In my case it was a media calibration issue. To perform calibration switch the power OFF, then pres FEED button and hold it, Power ON still holding and after three red flashes release it. Calibration report will print out. At the end of that print you should get "PRESS FEED TO END". Do it and it should be ok. Let me know if that worked.

Zebra 2844 won't print anything.

Sounds like you may have taken out more than the fuse. In case there is still life the next thing to try is a printer reset

1) Turn printer off.
2) Hold down feed button whilst turning printer on.
3) Let go of the feed button as soon as it starts to flash and then wait.
4) Printer will measure out 4 labels then print out a Hex dump ending with a not to "Push Feed to Exit"
5) Push feed

Follow the above instructions, if you mess around tapping the feed button (not following the above) you can change the printer between line mode and page mode. To swap that back is another storey.

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.
