You should have a code book with the scanner setup barcodes in it, you need to enable code 128 by scanning the appropriate codes in the code book.

How do I get my Symbol LS2208 to recognize EAN128. I need it to prefix [C1 when a EAN 128 is scanned.


you need to scan some of the bar codes found on the manual.
Find the product reference manual -usually found on the cd with the scanner or download from motorola site - and in chapter "symbologies" scan "ENABLE CODE128" barcode.
To have prefix when a code is scanned, scan "SCAN OPTIONS" then " then "ENTER"
Last set the preffix value by scanning "SCAN PREFFIX" then four digits that correspond to the character you want to use as preffix.
If you need more than one character for preffix then you will need the Advanced formatting manual, which ican be downloaded from motorola. In this case you need to create a "rule".

Let me know if you need further assistance

Hi, i am trying to configure my barcode scanner LS2208 to put a {TAB} in when scanning


There should have been a sheet or book of bar codes that came with your scanner. These codes will allow you to program your scanner to do most anything, including adding a tab. You simply look at the bar codes and read what they do. you simply scan the one that adds a tab and it will forever add the tab unless you re program it.

If you have lost your book/bar code page, you should be able to go to the manufacturer website and download/print a document with the programmable bar codes.

What is the bar code for the tab key


Hi paulajoy. I believe I can help, but I'm not sure what you mean. What are you trying to do? Configure your scanner to put a {TAB} keystroke in when scanning? Or are you just looking for the code for a {TAB} keystroke? If you are just looking for a code to identify it, the ones I know of are: ^I for Character, 09 for dec, and 09 for hex. If you're trying to configure your scanner, let me know and I'll be happy to help you find the right barcodes in the manual.

I would like to transmit EAN-13 bar code without check digit, but closed by ENTER.


If you would like the LS2208 to transmit only the first twelve digits of an EAN-13 barcode followed by an enter you will have to write an Advanced Data Formatting rule using barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide found here: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=114420371&stateId=1%200%20114410810

The barcodes you will print and scan in the order they are listed are:
Begin New Rule
EAN-13 (from the Critera pages of the ADF section)
Send Next 12 Characters
Send Enter key
Save Rule

If all other barcodes require an enter key make sure you scan Scan Options, Data Suffix, Enter (from the same manual or from the Quick Start Guide) before scanning the ADF rule above.

When i scan a barcode why do i have to push enter?


Go to http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=7188201bpdf&sliceId=&dialogID=111756507&stateId=0%200%2011492385
This is the quick start guide for the LS2208. On the first page you will see a section titled Carriage Return/Line Feed. Scan these three bar codes from top to bottom. That's it.

I have a ls2208 symbol scanner that need to scan code 39.... The example below is return when I scan the following information. It seems to be do stange thing with the first 2 charecters. Can you help?...


Hi,
Your scanner is set up for full Ascii mode.
$B = CTRL B
%I = >

Re-program to enable "Code 39" and disable "Code 39 Full Ascii"

In Code 39:
$B = Control key on
%I = Tab

Hope this helps.

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.
