Question about Zebra 105Se Thermal Printer
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. https://support.zebra.com/cpws/docs/s_series/105se_defaulting_proc.htm
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:
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.
