I want to read only part of the code. From the sixth character up. I tried with the manual to scan the bar code that sets the reading from the sixth character. It does nothing. I tried with the software 123scan that is provided with the scanner..it does nothing. well it does something. errors. when i want to comunicate with a program it says error open port failed (on all 4 com ports). i tried to install the software on another system, instalation error. help :)

usually you need to configure the reader to tell it what kind of barcodes you want it to read and how to interpret & output the codes to your computer (whether you need prefix or suffixes to your codes( for automation))
the user manual for the reader has some bar codes to configure the settings for the scanner.
<p>The primary purpose of bar codes is to encode the unique
characteristics of numbers and letters can be in a format that machines can
easily read. However, bar codes are read by people often also for this reason,
the codes generally include both parties readable and legible. The most popular
bar codes meet a standard called "Code 39". The latest version of the
code with 39 additional characters called "Extended Code 39." Among
other characters, Extended Code 39 allows users to include carriage returns
(CR) in bar codes. <br />
<p>1. Setting the bar code scanner to read "Extended Code
39," Code 39 is not as common support CR. The details depend on the
specific bar code scanning software is used, but you will usually find this
option under "Tools" then "Options." <br />
<p>2. Configure the software to generate bar code to the
"Extended Code 39" is also used. The details depend on the specific
software to generate barcode is used, but you will usually find this option
under "Tools" then "Options." <br />
<p>3. Type "M $" (without the quotes) at the point
where you want the CR model is within the barcode. M $ gives a CR Extended Code
39. <br />
All you have to do is create a rule to transmit only the 12 digits you want. You can create a rule with the Programming manual or the 123scan software. Both of these are available online at support.symbol.com. Here is a short cut: http://tiny.cc/d400s

The number of characters read is defined in your application and the width of the printed bar code. Also the width of the laser or ccd.

you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
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.
In the user manual for this device there should be a code book (or code pages), These are a selection of barcodes which you use to configure the device.
One of the settings is to omit the barcode header (which indicates a type of barcode for instance a PART number might begin with P or a Serial number might begin with an S) This barcode system may have been initially programmed to omit these code letters
Be sure the Flic scanner is set to the factory default configuration by scanning the Defaults bar code given above.
Then check the Format options for Characters to Strip and Characters to Append (see page 10) and make sure these are set correctly.
In order to scan the ?Factory Defaults? bar code in the Flic Operator?s Guide to reset your Flic scanner to the default settings: Select Flicware , Tools , Format and add the appropriate control character(s) in the Characters to Append box.
