Hi.. i think you should open up your mobile and take the keypad out and clean it... if you are not able to clean it you can give it to mobile experts.. now a days many mobile owners open up their mobile by themselves.. open your mobile a the back first remove the battries and then open at the front and you can take the keypad out and clean..

How do i get the internet explorer message that appears from time to time off the screen of motorola mc3190 without having to shut it down


The key combination you looking for to close any window or message in a Windows environment is ALT+F4, depending on the type of keypad the Motorola MC3190G are using.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

48-Key Keypad

The ALT functions are indicated in blue on the keypad, so in order to use these, you have to activate the ALT Functions first by pressing the BLUE BUTTON (FUNC) (Right side below ENTER button) and then press the CTRL BUTTON (left side below BKSP button).

After the key combination is pressed, the ALT icon appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the ALT icon appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices.

Now you can press the "D" button to use F4, this will close any window or message that is currently in view.

38-key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC BUTTON (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and then press CTRL button (Middle below UP ARROW button), now you can press the F4 button.

28-Key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and then press the CTRL button (Top right side below RIGHT ARROW button), now you can press number 4 to use F4.

Hope this helps, good luck.

'tab' button doesn't work on Motorola MC3190


You get 3 different keypad models of the Motorola MC3190:
- 28 Key Numeric
- 38 Key Shifted Alpha
- 48 Key Alpha Numeric

So depending on the type of keyboard your model has, using TAB are different across these 3 keypads.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

When the FUNC button is pressed the icon "F" appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the icon "Blue Circle" appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.1 devices.

In order to use the TAB function, do the following:

28 Key Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

38 Key Shifted Alpha - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

48 Key Alpha Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below ENTER button) and press the number 9 button.

How do you enable Wireless on MC9090


If there is an 'X' on the radio icon not a '!' then it has been disabled.

To switch it on hit the wireless icon in the taskbar and select [enable radio].


If the radio fails to switch on then try a warm boot:-

Hold down the power button for approximately 10 seconds until the splash screen is shown.

If it still fails proceed with a cold boot:-


Partially remove the battery, hold down the On/Off button, the trigger and reinsert the battery. When the orange light on the keyboard flashes release the on/off button and the trigger.

If the on/off button or trigger is held down longer than required this occasionally causes the terminal to get caught in a warm boot cycle

If the fault is still not rectified then the device requires repair. Which we can help with as we have a specialised repair centre.


If there is an '!' on the radio icon not a 'X' then the radio cannot associate to an AP due to regulatory issues.

Hit the wireless icon in the taskbar and select [options], a pop up is then display, select [Regulatory] from the pull down menu. Then select your country and switch of 802.11d if not required. Save and exit

Speaker Volume Adjustment on a Motorola MC3190 Handheld Barcode Scanner


We have 'pens' that we can use on the screen, so I was able to click on the 'Window' icon at the bottom left corner, select 'Settings', then 'Control Panel', and double-click on 'Volume and Sounds'. I only work with touch-screen guns, so don't know how to get there without the 'pen'... though finger nails have worked, but it's tough with a small icon in the corner like that. 79c9c46c-b253-46a7-99b3-2b5d2ebe8945.jpg 615ed7cd-03b1-4121-8f14-ab44c21750a0.jpg 8f663bdb-630b-43c1-95d5-5ded8754f944.jpg
I don't know of any way to get it to vibrate. With our gloves, we wouldn't feel it anyway. In a warehouse, having the clicking sound loud enough means we can hear if a box is skipped or an error occurs.

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.

Freezes on the warm boot screen


Hello jumpmaster. When an MC90XX does this, it means that something has gone wrong with the Operating System file execution. Sometimes a cold-boot can fix it (instructions below). If not, then there is a problem with the OS files. If you purchased your MC90XX from Motorola/Symbol you should be able to download a copy of your OS to reinstall. The file will include a readme.txt that will walk you through the process. I hope this solves your problem. Good luck!
  • To Cold Boot
  1. Press the primary battery release to partially eject the battery.
  2. While the battery is partially released: simultaneously press and release the trigger and power button.
  3. Push the battery back in until it clicks.
  4. The MC90XX should power up and start it's boot-sequence.

Dialing through the modem


Ok sometimes PABX systems just don't seem to play well with modems... as a thought put a couple of Commas, a "Pause" B4, AND AFTER ya try to dial the 9, IE: ,,9, As sometime it takes a while for the PABX to "Latch on" to the DTMF tones. Thats all I can think of really.
