Error writing to connection: Software caused connection abort: socket write error - java

Hi,

Im trying to print a image using java examples code. This is the java code:

    private void sendImageToPrint(boolean shouldStoreImage, String storePath) {

        File imageFile = new File(filePathTextField.getText());

        if (imageFile.exists() && imageFile.isFile()) {

            Connection printerConnection = null;

            try {

                printerConnection = connectionPanel.getConnection();

                printerConnection.open();

                ZebraImageI image = ZebraImageFactory.getImage(imageFile.getAbsolutePath());

                if (shouldStoreImage) {

                    ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(printerConnection).storeImage(storePath, image, 540, 412);

                }

                ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(printerConnection).printImage(image, 0, 0, 550, 412, false);

            } catch (ConnectionException e) {

                DemoDialog.showErrorDialog(ImagePrintDemo.this, e.getMessage(), "Connection Error!");

            } catch (ZebraPrinterLanguageUnknownException e) {

                DemoDialog.showErrorDialog(ImagePrintDemo.this, e.getMessage(), "Connection Error!");

            } catch (IOException e) {

                DemoDialog.showErrorDialog(ImagePrintDemo.this, e.getMessage(), "Image Error!");

            } catch (ZebraIllegalArgumentException e) {

                DemoDialog.showErrorDialog(ImagePrintDemo.this, e.getMessage(), "Illegal Arguments!");

            } finally {

                try {

                    if (printerConnection != null) {

                        printerConnection.close();

                    }

                } catch (ConnectionException e) {

                }

            }

        } else {

            DemoDialog.showErrorDialog(ImagePrintDemo.this, "\"" + imageFile.getAbsolutePath() + "\"" + " is not a valid path.", "Invalid File Path!");

        }

    }

the error occur when is executed the following code:

  ZebraPrinterFactory.getInstance(printerConnection).printImage(image, 0, 0, 550, 412, false);

and show this error:

Error writing to connection: Software caused connection abort: socket write error

Im using an emulator printer zpl and it works when i send commands fron notepad for instance.
