Zebra Lp2824 Plus And Driver V7.3 追蹤

I'm trying to install the Zebra LP2824 Plus and seagull's driver on Windows 7. Everything seems to install fine. I installed the driver, connected the printer, it set it up plug-n-play and then I reset the driver to the LP2824 v7.3 driver, I've been told NOT to use the '2824plus' driver. I can get the config page to print and even got the test page from Windows to print once. However, it seems after it prints the status light flashes red as if there is no stock in the printer, which there is. I press the feed button and the stock keeps feeding until I open the top to stop it. The status light blinks green most of the time, hardly ever a steady green. We are using this to print ticket stock for a theatre company, eventually need to print tickets from Center Stage Software's WinTix (haven't gotten that far!). I've reset the printer to factory defaults, re-set the page to 2x5.5" which is the size of our stock, unloaded/reloaded the stock, etc. We have an LP2824 we've used for 2 years and it works fine. It's this 'plus' we're having trouble with!

 

Any assistance, ideas, etc will be welcomed. Thank you!

You want to check the sensor on your printer to make sure that there's nothing obstructing it.  On those printers it's common due to the placement of the sensor (right in the bottom middle of the paper path) to pick up some adhesive or to get a piece of a label stuck in the sensor housing.  Make sure it's clear, then you'll want to go through a full calibration of the printer by holding the button until you get 4 green flashes.

I did as suggested above. There didn't seem to be anything blocking it - but wiped it off, blew on it... Calibrated it, printed a test page ok, but then continued to feed ticket stock, stopped and the red light is flashing. Note: We are not using a 'rolled stock' but a ticket stock that is fed through the back, by the green rollers and out the front.

What you're describing is that for whatever reason the printer's not able to calibrate.  Does the card stock that you're using have a gap, or are you using a black mark on the back of them to sense the end of a label?

The ticket stock has black marks on the back of them. We swapped to the 'plus' version of the driver and got the printer to work, printing 1 ticket. However, it is pulling too much of the next ticket so subsequent tickets don't print on the stock correctly. To explain a little bit - before a show we print 'the house' which means I can print 50, 60, 100 tickets at a time. Pre-show walk up traffic, I may print 2 tickets for one customer, print 4 for the next, etc.

 

 

In the 'non-plus' driver, there was a setting Mark Offset that we would set to a negative number (like -1.15), is there an equivlent setting in the 'plus' 7.3.3 driver? I tried setting Set Reset Position Adjustment to a negative number and that didn't seem to do it, besides it only seems to allow a max setting of -.59 in in Rest Position and Set Top Adjustment. I also tried various settings in BackFeed - before, after, none. I set it to a percentage - 10%, again that did it for the first ticket, but not subsequent ones. Any ideas?  I appreciate the assistance! Thank you!!

It sounds like you installed the ZPL variant of the driver for that printer.  Get the EPL one and you'll see the options that you're looking for.
