I just added a LP2824 printer to a new computer. The printer prints barcodes too long. My scanners wont read the barcode. The printer printed the barcodes fine before. Ive gone through the settings and tried just about every combo I could, but still no good.
This is defendant on the program you use to print labels with. The printer responds to either a print job sent to the driver (like a standard windows printer). Or you can send an EPL program to the printer in order to use internal barcode generating features of the printer. The dimensions of the barcode are controlled via the EPL script. See the EPL programming guide avaialble on Zebra's website for more info.

Did you make the barcodes using Code 39 or 3 of 9? If so, the scanner defaults to reading between 2 and 55 character Code 39 barcodes. Go to the Motorola Solutions support portal and search for Article ADC-00404 portal motorolasolutions com. Print the article and scan the Code 39 Any Length barcode. Once this is done the scanner will read all Code 39 barcodes.

there is a document you will need to scan to do this, if you want to send me an e-mail i will send you the document
unfortunately it appears that you do not have sufficient Contrast for your barcodes, this will make scanning them difficult, that with the added issues of wear & fading makes the use of barcoded passcards difficult. it's probably better to use RFID or Magstripe cards for this application
