Make the pause test (press pause and turn on) press Pause , 5 sec. if print qualiti is ok and you dont see some lines across the print, the problem is not the printer.
if you see some withe lines across the print, you need to replace the print head.

Bar code printed on sato m5900 Rve printer will not scan. Same bar code printed on HP laser WILL scan. Font used is ID Automation 39 - prints at 6 pitch


Are you printing in thermal transfer mode or on thermal direct stock? Sounds like your image is not black enough for your scanner. Things to check: adjust printhead temperature, change ribbon stock, change thermal-direct stock, adjust scanner's sensitivity.

I wish to connect a bar code scanner to my Keyboard Display Unit for inputting data when printing labels. Can you provide information relating to pin outs, protocols and how to set this up? Thanks


By Keyboard / Display unit I'm assuming your using a PC, thin client or dumb terminal. If you are using a PC then the easiest way to do this is to get a bar-code scanner with a USB interface, no programming should be required with possibly the exception being of adding a "Enter" (CR LR) after each scan.

If you have a dumb terminal then you may need to look at trying to use an RS232 connection (if one exists) or a keyboard wedge solution where the scanner is plugged into the keyboard port along with the keyboard.

In any event pin outs would vary depending upon the scanner you want to use and the device you are connecting the scanner to.

Hope this helps

Have a Zebra 105SE that prints the FEED test just fine, but will not print the PAUSE test nor will it print a bar code label from the computer. The FEED test prints vertical bar codes while the PAUSE test...


Check to see if the pause light is on also. Make sure you are using the correct printer driver. (105se)
Try in ZPL and then try in ZPLII.
Check Delimiter character 2CH
Check Format prefix 5EH
Check Control prefix 7EH

The printer will print a bar code but the reader will not read it. the reader reads the bar code from a second printer just fine


Sounds like there are some elements worn off of the printhead causing some of the bars to not be printed. To test, create a label that prints a thick black line or solid black box across the width of the label (assuming a 4" label). Any vertical white lines that show indicate elements that are not functioning.
You could also put one label above the other, lining up the barcodes and you'll probably see bars that are missing from the label that won's scan.
The only ways to correct the problem are to install a new printhead or move the barcode field on the label so that the missing elements fall in the spaces between the bars.

Hope that helps !
