    Install ls2208 USB. Worked for 2 days then stopped emitting light. Computer continues to recognize, Device Manager is happy. Laser is very, very dim.

Symbol has confirmed that there was a batch of scanners sent out with defective lasers. Call them at 800-653-5350 for a replacement. Have the scanner handy to give them the serial number. They were very helpful.

Send all data that remains
Send enter key (if you need an enter after the data )
Save rule

LS2208 has a circle instead of a bar. How do I get the bar istead of the circle?


Why?

Omni directional scanners displays a circle and will scan in any direction as long as the circle is focused on the center of the bar-codes.

Cheaper scanners display a bar because it only scans in one direction.

Hi my name is christian canola and i purchased a symbol ls2208 barcode scanner from geminicomputers and i downloaded the program 123 scan2 for my barcode scanner and i click on my scanner is connected via...


Hi Christian, if your scanner was manufactured before February 2010 it may not be able to communicate directly with 123Scan2 so you wont be able to upgrade firmware with the program, but you will still be able to use it to create configuration sheets. These are the only two uses for 123Scan2.

To create a configuration sheet without "finding" the scanner click Create New Configuration then choose My scanner is NOT connected. Select the LS2208 and click on the blue firmware button to get into the configuration. When you have completed your configuration click the Print bar codes selection at the top of the window and when the file comes up be sure to click on the Bar code formatting menu and change the Bar code type to 1D One setting per barcode if it is not already there. Older scanners will not work with concatenated 1D barcodes where 123Scan2 puts more than one setting into a barcode.

I have a Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner with an RS232 connection. My new computer only has USB. Can I simply buy a new cable for the scanner, or do I have to get a serial-usb adapter to make it work?


You can purchase a USB cable for the scanner. The cable comes out of the handle of the scanner. The part number of the USB cable is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

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.

LS2208 scanner not returning for multiple scans


It sounds like you need to program a Tab after each scan. You will need to download the manual from www.motorola.com so you can access the setup bar codes.

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.
