When I turn on my scanner, it stays on for about 5 seconds, at which time you hear a beep, and then the scanner turns off. Unfortunately, I dropped my scanner several days ago. When I dropped it, it landed with the buttons side down. I tried changing the battery and the AC adapter, but that did not solve my problem. Could it have anything to do with it landing with the buttons side down?

Re: Scanner turns it self off
Try doing a reset on the scanner, and make sure your battery is good. For the one that dropped it, remove the battery, remove and reinstall the APCO card, bci25d, and then try powering it with the wall adapter, leave the battery out. If it turns on and stays on you might just have a bad battery, they fail and there is plenty of reports online of battery failure causing weird problems.
For the next post regarding your problems to get it to stay on and the APCO card. Remove the card completely, reset the scanner, and then reinstall the card. Make sure its off and the battery and wall adapter are disconnected when removing and replacing the card for safety. After replacing the card leave the battery out and plug in the wall adapter and try turning it on, again eliminating the battery as the possible problem. If it won't turn on you have a bad wall adapter, if it turns on then off yet you could still have a bad wall adapter, get a voltmeter and check it. If it now turns on and stays on you have a bad battery, replace it. You mentioned there is no charge to the battery, how did you check that, is it acting like the battery is not charging? That can also just be symptoms of a bad battery.
The adapter for the 250D is the AD600U, 12v 500ma.

Unfortunately, this is all I can find for instructions.
1. Connect the USB receiver to the host (e.g.: PC)
2. Pull the trigger to start the scanner. It works on two beeps.
Notes: 1. The charging port on the scanner is for battery charging only. Do not connect it to data cables.
2. The LED light at the scanner bottom is on and red under charging and off when charging is finished.
3. During working, the scanner will auto shut down in case of not in use for 20 second.
4. The receiver was paired to the reader at factory. Do not pair again unless necessary. When self pairing is needed, please first read the code CHANNEL SETTING. (Before setting, please reset the receiver until the light turns long green. Reset it to the light off when setting is finished.
Package Including: 1 x Wireless Barcode Scanner 1 x Receiver 1 x Charging Cable 1 x Instruction

enroll finger print at random no user ID 1 + # + master code + # first scan place finger on the scanner and remove when the scanner light turns off second scan replace same finger when the scanner lights back up you will hear a single beep if enrollment is successful
Plug the AC adapter into the
back of the scanner and into a wall electrical outlet. Screw the antenna
into the receptacle on the back of the scanner (extend the antenna to
full length for best reception).
Set the squelch level to allow
signals to be heard by turning the squelch knob counterclockwise. Rotate
the volume knob clockwise until you hear static. Slowly turn the
squelch knob clockwise until the static noise disappears.
Start programming frequencies into the scanner by pressing the "Manual" button.
Press the up arrow or down arrow key until the channel you wish to program is visible on the display.
Use the numbers on the keypad to enter the frequency for the local transmitter you wish to receive.
Press the "E" key to complete the process of entering the frequency.
Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each additional frequency you wish to monitor.
Press the "Scan" key to start
the scanning process. The scanner stops on a channel when it detects a
signal strong enough to hear over the squelch setting. Two seconds after
the signal stops, the scanning process resumes.
turn off scanner hold down the state/highway the number 2 and 9 then while holding the 3 buttons turn your scanner back on while holding the state/highway, 2 and 9 buttons if you did everything correct you will see a clear message show up and about 2 seconds later hear a beep
1. Press and hold the trigger for an extended period of time (approximately 5 seconds). The scanner cycles
through three settings (Low, Medium, High) emitting a 2-beep tone at each setting.
2. To select a particular setting, release the trigger after you hear the desired 2-beep tone.
Hi. This is normal. Unless you made a backup, you will have lost a lot of system programming. Firstly you must make sure you have initialised it with the code for scanning and not check tracking. To do this:
Turn key to program mode
This will print the memory allocation. Next to file 16, you should see a figure in the thousands (usually 6000).
Next you need to allocate the I/O port for the scanner.
Turn key to program mode
Now perform a flag clear to set the new I/O:
Turn key to PROGRAM mode.
Turn power off at wall.
Hold RECEIPT FEED down - keep your finger on it.
Turn power on at wall.
Wait 5 seconds, then let go of RECEIPT FEED.
You should see "FFFFFFFFFF" on display.
Turn back to REG mode and try it. You might have to log a clerk back on after the flag clear. See how you get on.
To turn on the keylock, hold down key for about 3 seconds until the scanner beeps three times and appears. To turn it off, hold down key for about 3 seconds until the scanner beeps three times and the key disappears
