Question about PSC QuickScan 6500

Open Question

Have been using the PSC Quickscan 6500 for a long time with Follett's Sagebrush Library Management System. Have switched to LibrayWorld's web based Library Management System and immediately ever time I scan a patron or book barcode there is an asterisk at the begining of the number and the end of the number. The system will not recognize my numbers with these asterisks. Am scanning same barcodes that I always have.

That scanner has been constrained to accept a digit length of 12 or less .. probably IPC codes which are 12 digits in length.

Do you know the symbology of the barcode you are scanning? (i.e. UPC, EAN, I2of5, C3of9 etc).

SOURCE: scanner is putting an asterisk before and after

Hello mtechman. The first thing you should know is that some people use Code39 barcode 'fonts' to create their barcodes. With these, the creator will need to put an asterisk before and after the barcode's 'human data' to transmit a 'start/stop' command. Sometimes, the barcode already has a start/stop command integrated so the asterisks that are put in the 'human data' are extraneous and are perceived as part of the code that needs to be transmitted. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there really isn't a good way to remove those asterisks.
However, I think this will fix your problem. I have the programming manual hosted on my company's website for our clients (www.shiftintoblue.com/resources/QS6000_configuration.pdf). Take a look at page 63. This page has the options on whether to transmit start/stop characters (the asterisks). This should take care of your problem. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Scanner won't scan library barcodes.


The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library. NET UPC Barcode Reader

Driver for psc quickscan 6000 plus scanner


Hi!

Your PSC QuickScan 6000 should not require any drivers. If this unit plugs into your keyboard port, you should be able to scan a barcode and view the data results in a text editor, such as Notepad. This technology is called "Keyboard Wedge" and consists of a cable with three ends. The first is plugged into your hand-held scanner. The second and third are rather close together and are at the end of the cable. This cable is called a "Y" cable because it resembles the uppercase letter "Y". The bottom part of the "Y" plugs into your scanner, while the first upper part plugs into your computer. The second upper part of the "Y" should be a female plug, allowing you to plug your keyboard into it.

Now if you are using a Keyboard Wedge scanner with a USB keyboard, the female end of the "Y" cable would not have anything plugged into. Unfortunately, the scanner will most likely not operate properly if no keyboard is attached to the keyboard port.

I suspect you may have an RS232 or "serial" scanner. Does your scanner have a power supply that plugs into a standard wall outlet? If so, you may have a serial interface scanner. You could use a program called Com to Keyboard, which would convert RS232 or "serial" data into keyboard data. This is a free program, however, it is a resource hog and may slow your system down.


Feel free to call if you have any additional questions.
Good Luck & I Hope this helps!

PSC 6000 Plus not scanning


There are a few questions:

What kind of cable do you use?
USB, SERIAL, PS2

What kind of computer?
Normal computer or Laptop?

Then...

When you recieve the scanner like new you always have to program it.

First you do

Reset to factory defaults.... Never do this with working scanners

then

you have to program it.

First the Connection type
and then if needed a computer type.

After that you usually have to scan a suffix.

This means when you scan a barcode it needs to do something after.

normally it doesn't give Enter after you scan.
That is what the suffix is for.

and then you scan additional symbologies to scan

Like Code 39, UPC A etc. etc.

It needs to be programmed with the manual you recieved.
if you don't have it you can download here.

http://www.scanning.datalogic.com/sitefiles/manuals.aspx

go down in the list to quickscan 6000
and programming manual.

please don't print all the pages. only what you need.

If you need more help i will hear it.

good luck.

Problems with very small Barcodes


Default settings set a global limit of 4.

You can set the global minimum code length by following the instructions in the user manual on page 24:

1) Start
2) Set Global Min Length
3) Scan the number on page 303: I.e. '0' followed by '3' to set length to 3
4) Set
5) End

GP5385 incompatible with EAN 13


Dear Akiong, Please try to reset your scanner configuration, using some utilities from it's manual book (usually available at it's case/box), restore it by scanning it to factory configuration,or scan a label that would enable all symbologies.

PSC QuickScan GP5385-104342 RS-232 / DOESN'T WORK!


I think the problem you all are having is that this model of scanner requires a "decoder" to work correctly. It is another box which goes in-line between the scanner and the RS-232 port or ps/2 port of the pc. I'm not 100% positive about this, but I am pretty sure this is the problem. You need to look on e-bay for a psc barcode decoder.
