Symbol handheld scanner problems


scanners are just plug and play.. be sure the scanner is programmed to read the type of bar code you are scanning.. Check the symbol to make sure it is not defaced. Try scanning test symbols of the same barcode type. and last tip, move the scanner closer to or further from the bar code.
