Topic or Information

Placing the EPL R Command at the end of the format erases the format resulting in a failure to respond to the print request.

G-Series printer does not respond to EPL Format though 2844 Series printers print labels correctly.

I replaced my LP2844 or TLP2844 printer with a G-Series printer and it is not responding to print requests.

Applies To

All G-Series Printers, 2824Plus Series, ZT Series Printers

Review the EPL Format being used for EPL Command Positions within the format. If you are using the EPL "R" command assure it is positioned at the beginning of the format.

EZPL printers (newer printers) are affected by the location within the label format of commands intended to set the Offset, Darkness, Print Speed, and so on.  Legacy "EPL only" models were tolerant of the location but the R commad will erase the format if not correctly positioned at the beginning of the format.  

As a best practice, position the setup related commands at the beginning of the format to avoid unexpected problems. See the EPL2 Programming Manual for details. Read More>>
