Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer

We are trying to set up to run locally on a serial port

Was running on a VMS system. We think there is probably a jumper that needs changing.

Since you have selected your printer as being a 105Se and not a 105Sl you will not be able to set any comm. settings from the front panel. They are all set by either 1 or 2 Banks of dip switches on the back of the printer (Banks 1 & 2 for serial interface printer and just Bank 2 for parallel interface.) Refer to your user's guide manual page 4-2 for how to set the dip switches to the configuration you need.

Label Guy is on the right track, but I would default the printer first. There may be other settings that are off.
The factory defaults of the printer are: 9600 baud, 8 bit word length, no parity, 1 stop bit, and XON/XOFF. The print queue should be set to match that.

Make sure you are using an RS232 serial cable. Not all serial cables are the same.
Make sure that the data being sent is ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). Use the text below to test communications:

^FO20,20^AG^FDTest Label^FS
Sending this script will print one label with "Test Label" on it.

If you can't use the format prefix 5EH (^), you can change to AAH, or the logical not.

The serial port parameters are set from the front panel.

Hit the "Setup" button, then hit the "Next" button (many times) until you reach the Serial Port parameters. You'll be prompted for a password before you get there. The default is "1234", entered with the "Plus and Minus" buttons.

Use the "Plus" and "Minus" button to make changes.

When finished, use the "Exit" button. Select "Permanent" changes and hit the "Save" button.

We need to set up a voice mail for an extension that has not been used in years. When I press intercom 777 and enter extension it tells me to enter password which no one in the office knows anymore. When...

The default password on partner voicemails is 1234. The reason for the call returning to the extension that transferred the call to the new extension is probably because the cover vms isn't set up for the new extension.
To check the vms cover for that extension, at either extension 10 or 11 press feature 00 and press the left hand intercom button twice. The display will say system programming.
Enter #310, the display will sayAutomatic VMS Cover Extension:
enter in the extension number of the new extension.
The screen will say either "1 assigned" or "2 not assigned"
enter in 1 (assigned)
press feature 00 when finished.

The phone rings 3 times and goes to voicemail on the 4th ring. How do I change it to pick up on the 8th ring?

I don't think its a good idea to back the vms cover rings to 8. The furthest I'd go is maybe 6.
Changing the VMS cover rings on a Partner system is done on either ext 10 or 11.
At one of those ext's press the feature key and "00"
next press the left hand intercom twice
the display should say system programming
enter in "#321"
the display should say VMS Cover Rings and ask for an extension number
enter the extension number you wish to change
The current ring data should be displayed
enter in new data (8 ring if you wish)
press feature "00" to logout

Tut systems Expresso MDU Lite-LR. Lost password--need to set to factory defaults

There should be a pin hole switch at the back of the concentrator, to reset the unit to factory setting.

Try pushing the pinhole reset switch with a pencil for ten second. If that does not work , unplug the unit from power, and hold down the pinhole with a pencil while connecting power and starting the concentrator at the same time.
After resetting the concentrator you will have to enter again settings.

Replace jumper settings and restart the computer


I have a card from a 386(not PCI-the older style) that I am trying to get to work with a pentium. When I installed the card into the pentium unit, I couldn't even get bios to boot. A friend of mine took off the jumper connectors and now the pentium boots to windows, but windows doesn't know the card is there. I need this card for the serial port to use my serial mouse. This is the same card and mouse that ran fine on the 386, but I don't have any documentation on the card for Jumper settings. I think it's an IC card but there are no distinguishing markings on the card other than the chipset#(Winbond W83757F9142NAAZ) and a serial#(S/N:8228906). It has pins to connect IDE/FDC/Game port. I've searched the Winbond website but haven't come up with anything on these numbers. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to find the jumper settings so that my serial mouse will work? I've attached a pic if that helps. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recognising floppy disk drive type on DS10

the Only VMS post on fixya ever.
wow. from the dark ages of DEC. VMS. OS.
sounds like bad drive if it can not be mounted.(or disk bad)
sounds like you are 42 years behind the upgrade curve too...
i used to work on all DEC systems. so know that . 1975
the DS10, is now 18 years old.

here is a relic manual, on that

is this your only DS10, of not try the drive on system #2?
ahh its now called OPENVMS,, amazing thing that is.

open vms was ported to ALph chips. 1992
then 2001 port of OpenVMS to the Intel Itanium architecture
so it's an 17 year old OS.

get HP proliant Server G7 up. and win. for sure.

Connecting laptop to phone KX-TA824 not reading COM 1 to connect

Save yourself the trouble and use the USB port :-)

TA's are tricky, I just order a cable for Panasonic from my supplier so I don't pay attention to the pinouts. The cable is a standard DB-9 Female to Female and it fits into my USB to serial adapter from Iogear.

You might just try a USB cable and make sure the serial port parameters are set properly. Change them, or make sure they are 9600,N,8,1 They are programmed in 1.7 of the maintenance console or via the programming phone in system option 800.

If all of that appears proper, it's probably time to look in the device manager of your laptop and make sure your serial port appears. Then, run Hypertrm to see if you can get SMDR. Once Hypertrm works, the Pana software should work.
