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.

Hi. I'm not sure if this will help you, but I found this website:

UPC Database Item Lookup

According to this website:

"Enter the all digits printed on the UPC bar code, including any numbers to the right or left of the bar code itself, even if they don't line up with the main row of numbers. This should be 13 digits for an EAN/UCC-13, 12 digits for a Type A UPC code, or 8 digits for a Type-E (zero-supressed) UPC code. Anything other than 8 or 12 digits is not a UPC code! (And just because it's 8 or 12 digits doesn't mean it is a UPC.) You must enter every digit here.
If you have a barcode scanner that outputs plain numbers, you should be able to use it to enter the UPC number here."

So, apparently you need more digits to complete the bar code #. But if you have the full barcode, you should be able to enter it on the website linked above, and find the image of the frames that you are looking for. I hope this helped. Thanks!

Explain bar codes


A bar code (often seen as a single word, barcode) is the small image of lines (bars) and spaces that is affixed to retail store items, identification cards, and postal mail to identify a particular product number, person, or location. The code uses a sequence of vertical bars and spaces to represent numbers and other symbols. A bar code symbol typically consists of five parts: a quiet zone, a start character, data characters (including an optional check character), a stop character, and another quiet zone.
A BarCode Readeris used to read the code. The reader uses a laser beam that is sensitive to the reflections from the line and space thickness and variation. The reader translates the reflected light into digital data that is transferred to a computer for immediate action or storage. Bar codes and readers are most often seen in supermarkets and retail stores, but a large number of different uses have been found for them. They are also used to take inventory in retail stores; to check out books from a library; to track manufacturing and shipping movement; to sign in on a job; to identify hospital patients; and to tabulate the results of direct mail marketing returns. Very small bar codes have been used to tag honey bees used in research. Readers may be attached to a computer (as they often are in retail store settings) or separate and portable, in which case they store the data they read until it can be fed into a computer.
There is no one standard bar code; instead, there are several different bar code standards called symbologies that serve different uses, industries, or geographic needs. Since 1973, the Uniform Product Code (UPC), regulated by the Uniform Code Council, an industry organization, has provided a standard bar code used by most retail stores. The European Article Numbering system (EAN), developed by Joe Woodland, the inventor of the first bar code system, allows for an extra pair of digits and is becoming widely used. POSTNET is the standard bar code used in the United States for ZIP codes in bulk mailing. The following table summarizes the most common bar code standards.

Are kitchen bar stools any different from commercial (pubs/bars) bar stools?


Essentially, there is no difference in the function of the stool; however the height varies slightly. Kitchen bar stools are 23-28 inches from floor to seat whereas commercial bar stools measure 29-32 inches.

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

I can't programmed my IT3800LR


Jaquino, there is a programming bar code to reset the device to factory settings in the user guide. I know you said that it is reading other bar codes like they are not programming bar codes, but have you tried this bar code? Usually it works, even when the device is totally hosed, unless there is some kind of hardware failure.

Here's the link to the Quick Start from the company website:
http://www.handheld.com/download.aspx?download=/data/f9e7f996-9ecc-4f49-b604-32fbd754085d.pdf&filename=3800+Linear+Series+Quick+Start

The factory reset bar code is on printed page 4 of the PDF document.
