Barcode Print Issues for Coupons

LaserJet 1100A
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time I print a coupon (from multiple sources, coupons.com and coupons.target.com), the barcode gets blurred together in some spots, making the barcode illegible by scanners.  Below is an example:

I have tried reinstalling the coupons.com printer device software, with no luck.  Any suggestions would be helpful, I cannot seem to find the same problem on any forum.

This appears to be an issue related to job processing or missing font information etc.

 

I believe that you must be using built in drivers available in the Windows 10 OS.  Please check if a Postscript-PS version of driver is available and try to use the same.

 

You may also try to print the job as an image.

I tried the HP Universal Print Driver for Windows PCL6 (64-bit) , tried the post-script driver, with bitmap option enabled or not, still the issue... bad drivers!

I have the same exact problem with my HP LaserJet 6L printer.  The PS Class driver does not work at all - and the standard driver causes the coupon barcodes to print exactly as you have shown in your photo.  HP, can you please resolve this problem for Windows 10 users!!!

Same problem here.

The HP driver is broken on Windows 10.

 

The problems are not limited to barcodes.

I also found smeared letters in some documents.

Finally I got a solution for this Driver problem for HP LaserJet 1100 since Windows 10 by Trevski:

 

"Resolved the issue by installing the HP Universal PCL 5 driver.

 

To install go to HP downloads https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/UPD/4157320/model/4157320

or search for HP Universal Print Driver and go from there.

 

When you get to the download page Windows 10 will be selected and you'll have the option to download a few different packages by clicking the [+] next to Universal Print Driver - none of which are the one we need!

 

You'll need to change the selected operating system to Windows 8.1 64 bit and then click the [Change] button.

You now get an extra option when clicking the [+] .... a PCL 5 driver.

 

Download the PCL 5 driver and install - use that and all should be well."

 

See my post for further details.

 

Thank you Trevski!

Cheers!
