problems generating/reading Code EAN 13

Topics: Code EAN 13

Hello everyone,
I generated the code 123456789012 and reading it's ok but using the code 670000099149 the barcode reader returns 2120000991493 (difficult to read for barcode reader).
It's a known problem? Am I doing something wrong?

thanks in advance

It seems a wrong barcode recognition for your case. In general, what encoded will be decoded.

My barcode generator & reader solutions: barcode generator & reader SDKs, .net barcode scanner sdk.

There is a bug with EAN 13 barcodes starting with digit 6, in that the used parity in the code is set to OEEEOE (O = odd, E = even), where it should be OEEEOO. I'll attempt to submit a patch, but due to CodePlex being put out of service, and this framework not being updated for 5+ years, I find it unlikely that the patch will be merged in time.
