From Zebra TLP2844 To Zebra GX420t - Persisting configuration trough line mode?

Good morning,

 

 

We have some Zebras 2844  using EPL Language, which have been working for nearly 10 years without  issues, recently we needed do add more printers and the someone purchase a couple of GX420t stating that they were EPL compatible.

 

Apparently all the forms we used on the 2844 work on the GX2844t but the page orientation isn´t right!.

So we trying applying a PAGE ROTATION of 180 using the EPL comand ZT.

 

When I try to set the Printer configuration using the ZT command to rotate the page it works, but i'm unable to persist this setting. whenever I power-cycle the printer it looses the configuration.
In the TLP2844 there was a LINE MODE that persisted this kind of setting.
I can't find any reference to Line mode in the GX420t manual I even found references online stating that the GX420t doesn't have it.

 

 

How do I make these settings persist?

 

 

Best regards

Valter

Hello Valter,Here is a link

Hello Valter,

Here is a link to the EPL2 Programming Manual, if you look at page 134, it describes how to set line mode via programming, which will persist (stay on) after a reset has been issued or the printer is power cycled. Otherwise, page 37, details how to make the change manually. Please try to make the change (I would think via programming might be the best way to start) and let me know if that change resolves the issue.

Thank you,

Beverly

Hello Berverly, thanks for

Hello Berverly, thanks for your quick reply, Thank you for the manual it's an updated version of the one I have.
If I read it correctly it say on a note in page 37 that

Note • G-Series printers do not support manually setting Line Mode. It can only be selected by command


This includes the Gx420t, right?
I wonder what do they mean by command. do they mean the

OEPL1 command?

Cheers

Hi Valter,My apologies, I

Hi Valter,


My apologies, I believe I may have been confused what your question was.

Were you asking for a way to keep the rotation change you made using the ZT command persist even after you power cycle the printer? Or were you asking if it was possible to set Line Mode on the GX420t. Also, are you using EPL1 or EPL2?

Thank you,Beverly

​Hi Valter,Can you send the

Hi Valter,

Can you send the ~HQHO command and read the response and post it?  That will help me help you find out if line mode is supported on your GX printer.  You can also try just sending the OEPL1 command, followed by a carriage return and then sending your label.
