Printing AklphaNumberic Barcode using I2of5 Format

I have a Zebra s4m printer and would like to print Alphanumberic Shipment barcode using i2of5 format. I know i2of 5 format supports only numeric. But we used to print the same barcode using Eltron LP2348 and I have to install this new printer. Can anyone help me here? I would really appreciate it. By the way i'm using the ZPL command to print the label and the barcode as well.

Indeed, I2of5 is numeric, use the 3of9 or 128 A or B to encode alphanumeric characters. Roberto Martinez Mexico bartech9@yahoo.com.mx

Gaps in barcode with Zebra S4M


The gaps run in the direction of the label feed? You have a bad printhead. Bad dots on the printhead prevent it from printing your format in the areas that you see the blank lines.
There is no easy fix other than replacing the printhead. You can prevent (or actually prolong the time between failures) in the future by periodically cleaning your printhead. It's recommended that you clean the printhead after every roll of labels. The printhead is underneath the hinged assembly. Over time, ribbon or adhesive from the labels builds up and causes dots to go bad - creating the blank lines you see. Clean your new printhead with rubbing alcohol.

Gaps in barcode with Zebra S4M


By gaps, do you mean a "void" area ? Over time, the elements on the printhead will wear down and finally they won't transfer heat to the ribbon. This causes a gap or void area. Usually the elements go out one or two at a time. If the area that is worn out is supposed to be printing bars for the barcode, this will cause the scanning problem you are experiencing.

The best way to see if elements are worn out is to design a label that has a thick solid black line across the label or a solid black box. You will see white vertical lines in the areas where elements are worn out. Another method would be to use the widest and longest label you have and print a 'pause" test label. This is done by turning off the printer, pressing and holding on the PAUSE key while turning on the printer. Hold the pause key for 10-15 seconds and when the printer is done with it's power on self test, it will start printing out a test pattern label which includes a nice black area where you can look for the white vertical lines.

Hope that helps !

The barcode printing on the label is very large. I need it to be more 'compact'. How do I change? What are my options? Thanks.


Select the correct label size in the printer setup.Go to printing preference in driver and changet label width and height according to label which you use.Eg: 52MM and 25MM
when label is large double click the barcode and decrease font size according to your label size.

Zebra S4M Lable Printer Not Scanning


You might want to check the barcode ratio, bar width, printer speed and printer darkness. I am assuming that you are creating the barcode in some sort of label design package, correct? You either need wider bars, or make sure you have enough quiet zone on both sides of the barcode, so shrinking it might be the solution as well.

Zebra TLP2844 does not print the barcode label


Can you print the barcode using the software that come with the printer. Zebra TLP2844 come with basic Designer software. Test whether it's printing the barcode or not.

IF it prints the barcode via its software, then you might be having barcode font problem between your application/os and the printer.

recalibrate the label length in the printer(hold feed and power up). from memory bar-one uses the label settings from windows, so go into printers and faxes under control panel and correct the label size
