Does the barcode have delimiters? The most common is the asterisks, but
many wedge (ie, tie into printer cord) barcode readers I'm familiar with
can be programmed to accept other delimiters.

To get a result of:

ABC123abc

You need to print it as:

*ABC123abc*

IS your reader configured to read code 39?

There are many code 39 barcode fonts. Have you tried using various
fonts? It may be the reader can not read the font currently in use
properly.

Is the barcode font big enough? Try increasing the font.

If all of the above are fine, then your barcode reader is screwed.

What make and model are you using?
Is it new out of the box?
Do you have the configuration manual.
What characters are in the barcode, exactly?

Most barcode readers I've worked with come programmed to read code39.

You may have to reset the defaults.

You may need to set it to read "Full" ASCII Code39.
