My company owns a Zebra 105Se, which is no longer covered by Zebra for service or support. Here's the problem:
When a label is printed, all elements of the label come out fine (text and such), but the bar code appears as a solid black rectangle. I've tried reinstalling the drivers I could find for it but everything I can think of doing doesn't seem to work.
If anyone has some insight on the matter that would be great.

Power off the printer and press and hold the pause key for 5 seconds while powering on the printer. This will start printing a bar across the width of the printhead. You should be able to determine whether it is a printhead issue or platen roller or both. Recycle power to exit diagnostics.
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 controller thinks the printhead is still open. If it is open, close it.
If it's closed, it's likely that the sensor flag on the rear of the shaft has come loose and is no longer interrupting the photosensor. Remove the rear panel and inspect the flag while you move the printhead handle. The flag is supposed to be in the opening of the sensor when the printhead is closed and latched.
