Flashing Green Light on the Zebra Printer
On most of the Zebra printers, the indicator light is available at the top panel. It flashes yellow, green, and red lights. Customers can check the Zebra printer hand manual to identify what each color signifies.
However, the interpretation of the flashing green light on the Zebra printer can be confusing for the users. This is because the flashing of the green light on different Zebra printer models indicates different processes.
If you own a Zebra printer with a Zebranet wireless option, then you may have experienced a flashing green light. The blinking of the green light indicates that the device is associated with your network and has passed the authentication check but the signal Zebra printer is receiving from the WLAN is weak.
The blinking of the ethernet status indicator on your Zebra printer could also mean that the device is unable to detect the presence of any nearby active network.
Zebra printers are also used for printing barcodes. Similar to other printers they also have the status bar at the top of the printer panel. It has LED indicators.
The flashing of the green light on Zebra Printers mid of printing indicates the progress of data transfer to the printer. The green LED will continue to blink as the Zebra printer receives the data.
As soon as the printer receives the full data the green light will get stable. At the time of green light blinks, the Zebra printer will hold its printing operation.
Steps to Stop The Zebra Printer Flashing Green Light
We now know the cause of the flickering of the green light on the Zebra printer. So, let us now understand the necessary actions required to eliminate the issue of green light flashing.
When you see the speedy blinking of the green light on the Zebra printer, then check the network connection.
- Firstly, Turn OFF the printer
- Now, disconnect the ethernet cable.
- Now, connect the ethernet cable back to the port and the Zebra printer.
- Turn ON the printer. The green will be at rest.
If the problem continues to persist, then you can take the following action.
Check the quality and specifications of the ethernet cable. If you own Zebra printer models P320i, P420i, or P520i, then confirm that ethernet cable is 10BASE-T with RJ-45 connectors. Also, the network speed of the port should be 10 HALF.
However, if the Zebra printer continues to flash a green light, then you should disconnect the printer from the WLAN and connect with a good network.
After the following action, the green light will be stable and signify that the printer is receiving string signals from WLAN.
When you transfer a large file from your device to the Zebra Label printer, it will flash a green light and hold down the operation in mid. In the Zebra printers GK888T, GK888D, R402, DA/DT402, LP/TLP2824-Z, LP/TLP 2844-Z, and TLP 3844-Z, you can find this issue. Since the data is large, the Zebra printer will flash the green light for a longer duration.
Only when the printer receives the full data, it will resume its operation. Thus to reduce the time of green light blinking, you need to transfer small files. If the Zebra printer flashes a green light twice, then it indicates that the device is at pause. Simply pressing the feed button at the top will resume the operation.
