it scans 'k' at start with upc code


It sounds like the scanner has the Symbol Code ID character enabled and you are scanning a GS1-128 (formerly known as UCC/EAN 128) code. You can disable this by scanning the Symbol Code ID None barcode from Adobe page 211 of 460 (Chapter 12 page 3) of the LS9208 Product Reference Guide. https://atgsupportcentral.motorolasolutions.com/content/emb/docs/manuals/6083309a.pdf

what is the upc?


UPC=Universal Product Code
Wikipedia says:
The UPC encodes 12 decimal digits as SLLLLLLMRRRRRRE, where S (start) and E (end) are the bit pattern 101, M (middle) is the bit pattern 01010 (called guard bars), and each L (left) and R (right) are digits, each one represented by a seven-bit code. This is a total of 95 bits. The bit pattern for each numeral is designed to be as little like the others as possible, and to have no more than four consecutive 1s or 0s in order. Both are for reliability in scanning.
Since S, M, and E all include two bars, and each of the 12 digits of the UPC-A barcode consists of two bars and two spaces, all UPC-A barcodes consist of exactly (3 × 2) + (12 × 2) = 30 bars.
The UPC has only numerals, with no letters or other characters. The first digit L is the prefix. The last digit R is an error correcting check digit, allowing some errors in scanning or manual entry to be detected. UPC data structures are a component of GTINs (Global Trade Item Numbers). All of these data structures follow the global GS1 standards.

where is the serial # located on the HP dv9500t laptop? I can find the product # but not the serial # on the label on back of laptop.


The Serial Number (s/n) is a ten-digit alpha-numeric number that is unique to your product. The Product Number (p/n) is a six or seven-digit alpha-numeric number that identifies your product. If there is a pound sign (#) or a dash (-) in the p/n, enter only the letters and numbers before the # or - sign. Both numbers can be found on the Universal Product Code (UPC) or Service Tag sticker located on the back, side, or bottom of your product (see picture below).
