Question about IBM 4039 Model 16L Laser Printer

1 Answer

Missing characters, missing print barcode lines

My IBM 4039 10R laser printer was working perfectly last week, but it start to print funny symbols and missing characters after I installed a Samsung scx 4521F laser printer a few days ago. I have tried to re-install the driver and reset factory defaults, didn?t help. My computer is fine, I tried it on the other printer, the printing is fine. Please help.

    Hi Printerguy

    Thanks for the help, I don't use any network cards, both printers are local printers, two printers are not connected through any networks. I use them individually.

Hi, It's been a while since I worked on these, so I'll go out on a limb (as far as my rating goes) and say that the few times I've seen that happen usually results from a bad network card. Now you may not be using a network card, so if your not then I'm not really sure what would cause that to happen on the printer side. The environments that I've seen that happen in are with an AS400 and the network card just gave out. You most likely tried this, but you might want to make sure that the computer isn't using one driver for both printers. Good luck.

HOW I WANT TO DISABLE ENTER AFTER I SCAN BARCODE..... I USE SCANNER MODEL GRYPHON GD4400

Just download print the GRYPHON quick reference guide (print on laser printer without zooming) and program the scanner to factory default.
Otherwise, you will need to download the FULL reference manual. Then print out the relevant programming barcodes that will remove the last character.

Symbol ls1902t-1000 scans extra characters when scanning a barcode

Download the quick start guide from support.symbol.com and reset to default by scanning the code from the PDF manual. This could either be a programmed ASCII prefix, or an error in the codes you are scanning. Have you seen the same problem with more than one scanner?

I need to strip the last character from the barcode when scanned with a Symbol P370 scanner. Is there a procedure for that?

If the barcode is a UPC-A or UPC-E you would scan the Do Not Transmit UPC-A or UPC-E Check Digit barcode from the P370 Product Reference Guide.

If the barcode is something other than a UPC-A or UPC-E the last character can be stripped using Advanced Data Formatting which would require the use of 123Scan. You can download 123Scan from support.symbol.com.

The P370 is NOT supported by the newer 123Scan2.

How do I disregard the last character on a UPC bar code?

In general you can create an Advanced Data Programming Rule which will say: If you scan an UPC barcode, please send only the first 11 characters of the barcode.
There are programming barcodes in the manual for the scanner or you can use the 123Scan2 application provided at support.symbol.com to create the rule and print out an config sheet.

Our company has several Zebra printers that print out barcodes that are scanned using handheld scanners for many things including inventory management. The labels that come from ONE of these Zebras...

Power off printer. Press and hold pause button while power on. This will print dark black line across the entire label. Check for white vertical lines. If you see any in the area of the label where you are experiencing a problem then the printhead should be replaced. Power off and on to exit diagnostics.
