Question about IBM Infoprint 6500 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Bar code I am trying to print a 29 character bar code (3 of 9). When I print on the 6500, (from an iSeries), it takes the full 8.5 inches of the paper. When I print on a laser it takes about half that, which is what I need for the barcode reader. I have tried both 4234 and 6408/6412 emulations. If I try to print with a starting position approximately halfway across the page, I get a solid black line. Thanks for your help.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z appears to print from the iSeries/AS400 but nothing prints no error message Set up same as other Zebra printers that are working printing bar codes


check the connection configuration (if is com port, check speed, flow control and others)
Try to install locally with segull drivers (www.seagullscientific.com) if you need, reset to factory defult. print a test label from the driver. if is comunicate, is not printer problem, is connection problem with your software.

I have two printer and on one the label size comes out with the correct font size but when I try to print out the same label on the second one the bar code and human readable is much larger...am I missing...


Yes. You have two printers that have different "dots per inch" print heads. The printer with the correct size font is a 300dpi printer and the second one is a 203dpi printer. That's why the bar code and text is printing larger with the same code being sent to the first printer. The dots on the printhead are larger therefore, larger print.

Change the printer driver on the second printer to Z105SL-300 dpi and the print will be just fine.

Hope that helps !
