Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld
I have a problem reading EAN 13.I set all parameters to the default values and in barcodes starting with a number different from 0 it's correct...reads 13 characters..but if i have a 13 character's barcode starting with zero read's only 12 characters..skip's the first zero..why??
If the leading digit that is being missed is a zero then the likelyhood is that the barcode is a UPC-A barcode (12 digit) but displayed as 13 by using a leading 0. You can convert the UPC-A barcode to a EAN13 on the MS9520 by using the setting that comes either in the 9520 manual or the start-up guide provided in the box. See Conversion of UPC-A to EAN13

Dear bluegreenash, the EAN 13 has 12 real characters..the first one(13 character) shows the country code and it's called "check digit".The default settings in the bar code scanner do not show the 13 character if the value is zero!!(zero is the code for US and Canada).So,by going to the configuration manual I scanned the setting that enables and shows the check digit character and the problem solved!!thanks for the help!!
