SOURCE: how do I clear the memory on a zebra gk420d?

Download the Seagull scientific GK420 ZPL driver. Version 7.16.

Open the driver file, (Double click on printer icon in printer & faxes folder)

Click Printer, properties, tools, action, reset printer.

Play around with the Seagull driver, it is very useful, you can format memory, read files stored in printer memory, see forms, fonts, images etc.

The forms stored in the G series printers are not cleared by the normal methods which one would use on it's predecessor the 2844 models. The G series will maintain the forms stored in its memory even if you download new firmware, or reset it. This is actually a good thing, as it prevents you from accidentally erasing forms stored in the printer.

SOURCE: We have a Zebra GK420d

You can enter the internal web page and set the printer from there. Or from the printer driver, you can set the darkness and speed there.
Or in your label printer software.

PP8000B printer just prints garbage..and Cash drawer doesn't open have tried the O POS manager , tried almost everything .. Any suggestions welcome...HELP


Every POS software has commands that opens the cash drawer and prints the ticket. It also controls how long the receipt ticket is, if it prints in color. Then there are two types of cables that communicate between the cash drawer and the printer to pop the drawer. Then there are dip switches in the printer that change how the printer operates according to the software. When it prints garbage, the driver that comes from the POS software is not synced with the printer. Sorry you asked. Call the POS Software company.

How can I change the baud rate on my HP Laserjet 3380?


There is no baud rate to this printer, it's either parallel cable or USB cable. Baud rate refers to the old serial cable connections, com1 or com2. You can add memory to this printer to make it print more documents faster. Try this location:

My system tell me that my serial port is running at 9600 bad. My motherboard is new enough to be running at top speed. What is the problem and is there anything I can do to fix this?


The mother board can be new enough to run at 19200 Baud rate or even more but most of the devices run at a baud rate of 9600. If the baud rate of the motherboard is increased then the communication between the device and the motherboard can become an issue.

If you still want to change the baud rate then the option will be available with the software you get with the device you are using with the serial port.

If I can know the device attached to the serial port then I can help you further.

Kindly Comment.

4800 baud rate communication in vb


You have to change it on both side!
If you are communicating your PC with a serial device, BOTH must have the same speed (serial device: 4800, pc: 4800)
Have you done it?

Most devices DEFAULT settings are 9600 baud rate, N, stopbit1.
But you can change it depending on the device...

Slow Printing


is it serial or parallel?
If it's serial, You can change the com port settings (baud rate) to a higher speed. You would need to change the dips on the printer to read the same Baud rate.
