Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Avoid Bending

Do not bend to analyze the elements that can be scanned upright. Try to scan the barcode from a distance standing. Most bar codes have good beaches scanning and can scan products from a variety of distances. If the barcode will not scan without looking, make the product closer to the scanner, such as placing on the disc.

How do I narrow the scan beam on the n410


The scan beam is fixed and can not be adjusted. However moving the n410 closer to the bar code will reduce the width of the beam itself. The narrow beam is designed to accommodate static stands as well as manual use.
Simply hold the n410 a few inches away from the bar code and the beam will be able to read the code underneath. No adjustment except the distance between the n410 and the barcode is required.

We are using a Metrologic MS9520 (keyboard wedge) with QuickBooks. It won't scan barcodes provided by Quickbooks, even though it's supposed to be compatible. We've downloaded about every driver, config, etc. program, and still no results. It will scan other printed barcodes, but locks up. Do we have a faulty scanner?


What I would first is to bring the barcode scanner back to factory defaults. To do this you will need the manual that came with the scanner, on the first page is a bar code that say "enter/exit configuration mode" scan that first and you will hear three beeps, then scan the bar code for "recall defaults" and rescan the bar code to "enter/exit configuration mode" then retry using your scanner, if this does not work bring up "notepad" on your computer and try to scan any bar code form any retail item. This should scan, if it does net then it could be a defective scanner. See page 2 on the manual link
