Make sure the serial dip switch settings match your com port on the computer. You need a null modem cable or adapter.

I'm trying to figure out how to connect my Datamax Prodigy Plus Thermal printer to my PC. I have a 25 pin connector on the Printer labeled J2. Also a round plug-in labeled J4. My computer has the same...


If the cable works on the Zebra it should work on the Datamax. It must be a RS232 serial null modem cable.Check the serial port settings and make sure the printer setting match the PC serial port settings. Baud Rate=________? Data Bits=________? Parity=_______?Stop Bits=________? Handshaking=____________?

The typical settings are Baud 9600,8,n,1 Xon/Xoff.
Also make sure of the comm port being used. com1,com2......etc

Running two Zebra's through Easylabel Platinum


When connecting Easylabel to a Zebra through the RS232 port, it's very important that the serial settings match between Easylabel and the printer. Easylabel defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, none parity. The Zebra defaults to 9600 baud, 7 data bits, and even parity. This mismatch causes the data light to flash but no print.

Change the printer setting to 8 data bits and none for parity and the baud rate can be whatever but make sure they match from Easylabel to the printer.

Hope that helps !

I'm inputing ASCII via RS232 would like barcode printout


You will need to send the data using ZPL or the printer won't recognize it , if you don't have experience in this area print through the Zebra Print Driver should work. In your application use Barcode 128 as the font and see how it goes

Zebra 105SE 25 pin serial cable


error can be on the pc.side or the printer's:

check

- if in windows the LPT ports are addressed properly (if u got a many usb ports, then windows adresses these first and skips the older lpt's- same applies when using an external usb-hub/splitter!)

- that there are no dma or irq conflicts
(see device manager)
- if the right driver is installed, if it suits the windows version u are using/has been written for it

- doublecheck printer against another printer
on your pc using same port

- and/or try to connect it to another pc

so u make sure on which side the error ocurs!

least: check the cable itself

Zebra Z4MPlus doesnt communicate with PC


Ok,

This machine has a parallel port. Try to print via parallel cable. If it works, consider staying with it. Serial ports are a pain to manage.
If you absolutely have to do it via rs232 though....
Question 1. Has it ever printed?
If yes, Go into Windows Printers and Faxes control and select the Zebra or whatever printer that you are using. Right click on it and you should get a menu that at the bottom say "Properties", select that, then you should get a new window with tabs at the top. You want the tab for "Ports". Select it and you will see all of the different output ports that you can direct your printing. RS232 is a COM port. So start at COM1, check it and try to print. If that doesn't work, go to COM2, etc.

Last resort, If you can't get control via the printer driver program, you will have to try redirecting the print manually (now you will understand why I said to stay with parallel output).
What you have to do is redirect your printing via the dos "mode" command.
Under "Start Menu" goto "Run" and put in "CMD" and click "OK".

This opens a black square window with a cursor blinking. Type in this:
mode com1:9600,n,8,1 (enter)

mode lpt2=com1 (enter)

Tell your program to use LPT2 if you can and see if it works.
By now a parallel cable instead of RS232 should be looking really good.
Good luck!

Zebra 105 SE Printing Blank Labels


You need the correct driver for the 105Se. The 300 dpi SL driver is not compatible.

Unfortunately, Zebra does not make it's older drivers available online. You will need to locacte someone with the correct driver for whichever version of Windows you are using.

We are trying to set up to run locally on a serial port


The serial port parameters are set from the front panel.

Hit the "Setup" button, then hit the "Next" button (many times) until you reach the Serial Port parameters. You'll be prompted for a password before you get there. The default is "1234", entered with the "Plus and Minus" buttons.

Use the "Plus" and "Minus" button to make changes.

When finished, use the "Exit" button. Select "Permanent" changes and hit the "Save" button.
