A-POS Mercury 530 III Inverse Object (on Barcode)

Post by joesatri » Thu Aug 21, 2014 2:20 pm


I have an A-POS Mercury 530 III Printer.

I'm trying to print an INVERTED barcode (printing on black tape using silver ribbon)

The printing must be on both sides (only one side will need to use the inverted barcode).

It allows me to use the inverted object, but when it to the printer, on the priner LCD it says: "ERROR ILLEGAL CODE"

If i remove the "Inverse" object, it prints everything correctly.

Can you please help me find the right settings for this..?

Make sure you're using the latest NiceDriver for your A-POS printer:

Then make sure that you can print a Windows Test Page to that printer without any errors in the physical printer. (If the Windows Test Page causes the printer to go into error state, you may need to reset the printer to factory defaults and/or consult the hardware manufacturer about that specific printer message)

Since you're printing using a non-black ribbon on black media,

...you'll want to specify a color for the barcode object that is not black (shown as red in the designer, but configurable with in the "Advanced Setup" tab of the driver).
