Question about Symbol Spark LS 1004

Getting a symbol spark ls1006 to work with an hp pavilion dv6140ca

Need to get an old symbol spark ls1006 to work with this hp laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition.
I've attached a ps/2 to usb adapter to the spark and attached it to a usb port on the laptop. I open notepad and then try scanning a barcode to test. The symbol laser light is seen scanning. It seems to pick up the barcode no problem and I get the beep. The red scan light turns to the green decode.
Problem is I'm not getting any numbers from the barcode scan showing up in notepad or in the business application that I want to use in the end state.
Is one potential source of the problem that the ps/2 to usb adapter is passive? I've seen that suggested as an issue. If so, what's a good "active' adapter? Is it because I'm trying to use the spark on a laptop? Is there a driver that I should have for the spark? Is there a way to reset the spark?
I'm very new to barcode scanning so any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Brian

    Thanks Allanon101. I'd been to the Symbol site and even spoke to Motorola support for the Symbol products but didn't get anywhere. Your link was different and I managed to find the manual at http://support.symbol.com/support/search...


    Dentinync200, I hope you can find it ok at this link. Let me know if you have problems.


    Now on to the next step: reading the manual!

An active adaptor will generally have short cables on it rather than being once piece of plastic. Also all active adaptors which I have seen will have 2 PS/2 ports, one for mouse, one for keyboard/barcode scanner while a passive will have only one port.

They are fairly simple devices, and any should work equally as well as the next one.

Search for ls1000 or the spark (it's nickname) - you should get the product manual as one of the first hits. You've got to go through programming the the barcode scanne, which is no easy task.

Good luck!

I am trying to run my pdt 3100 on my windows 7 operating system. I just bought a usb to serial DB25 Adapter and connected the docking station to the computer via usb. We bought this device about 10 years...


Hi Michael,
Sorry I could not login to Fixya yesterday,otherwise you should have received the reply mail early, but I just got busy due to some family problems.
Anyways, the product you have mentioned is PDT 3100 and you got to understand a few technical things which I would like to share with you now. First of all the PDT 3100 is 10 years old which is pretty older than the Operating System you are using which is windows 7 which is only 3 years old in market.What I am trying to say is any hardware device needs a driver software to run in a PC but the driver software which your device has was Last modified in 2004 so it is obvious it does not support windows 7.
Pleas check the detail here: http://support.symbol.com/support/browse.do?WidgetName=BROWSE_PRODUCT&TaxoName=SG_SupportGoals&BROWSE_PRODUCT.isProductTaxonomy=true&BROWSE_PRODUCT.NodeId=SG_PDT3100_1_2&BROWSE_PRODUCT.thisPageUrl=%2Fproduct%2Fproducts.do&id=m4&BROWSE_PRODUCT.TaxoName=SG_SupportGoals&NodeType=leaf&NodeName=PDT3100&BROWSE_PRODUCT.NodeType=leaf&NodeId=SG_PDT3100_1_2&AppContext=AC_ProductPage&param_document=sp
Also download the software from here: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB100172&sliceId=&dialogID=261780565&stateId=0%200%2041932917
Please read the instructions carefully and download the software and install it.Don't get disheartened, install the software and see what you get, but I feel technically it should not work. but it will work on any Windows XP PC.so, if you have another PC with windows Xp your device will work.
Thank you for purchasing my service, i will be more happy if I can assist you even better.Do revert back if you face any further issue with the same.
Thank you one again.

LS 1004 Symbol Barcode Scanner


The host type are the Interafces which are supported by the scanner directly (no adapter needed). And the Synapse adapter can even an old scanner connect to new interfaces like USB.
As you state you have the adapter for keyboard wedge. You would just need to download the Reference Guide for the "Synapse Smart Cable" at support.symbol.com a configure it acccording to your connection parameters.

Symbol Spark LS 1004 Problem


What barcode scanner do you have? USB, SERIAL or ps2.

by the way. the old computer is it like NCR, SIEMENS or IBM because then you need to re-program your scanner.

i found a manual where you can set your pc type with barcode scanner. be careful not to scan reset defaults. because you will loose your settings.

look at chapter 4-9 and 4-10

http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=3380601bpdf&sliceId=&dialogID=33708056&stateId=0%200%205522749

If you don't know ask me. we don't want to lose al the settings.

good luck

LS2208 scanner unrecognized by my HP notebook


It is not likely VISTA will run your scanner software as it is very old. However you could check program compatibility mode and set it to run as Win 95/8 Check compatibility in Start/Programs/Accessories or go to my Computer Windows Help[ and type compatibility in the search field But I don't think you will get far.
