Question about Symbol LS2208-7AZK0100S Handheld

1 Answer

LS2208AP Hi i tried to install plug in and play my symbol scanner LS2208AP but it does not read the barcodes. Its a PS2 plug. I plug in another of the same scanner and works. Does it mean this scanner is faulty? I scan the setup for tone volume and it reacts accordingly. How do you explain that?

The scanner must be set to the IBM PC/AT host type. Unfortunately, these scanners are not plug and play. They do not detect the keyboard host on power up so the host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. It should remember that host type until you set defaults. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. Print and scan this barcode. The scanner should start working immediately.

My Symbol LS4278 will not transfer data to the computer. I have the PS2 cable and added a PS2 to USB. I get a beep as if the barcode is read, but it's not transferring the data to the program.


Hello,

Be sure to use a full PS2 to USB adapter not just the plug adapter. The one to use has the cable and a small encoder box in the middle, usually for keyboard and mouse together. We have seen some of the cheaper adapters not pass the proper voltages to the scanner for a good read. The ones we suggest to our customers is made by Belkin part # F5U119VE1SN

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I have an LS4071 with an RL474 base. The cable has the PS2 Keyboard end. Scanner gets a good scan but no data goes into the computer. Testing with notepad open to receive the scan.


When I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector) I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!

If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

VB With MC9090S


Hello,
If you are willing to use VB.NET, then it will be easy. You would need the Symbol EMDK. With that and VS2008 (Express should be fine as well), you only need few coding steps:

1) Add reference to dlls
Symbol.dll and Symbol.Barcode.Dll

2) Finder a scanner
s = Symbol.Barcode.Device.AvailableDevices.First()

3) make a reader
r = New Symbol.Barcode.Reader(s)

4) add data
d = New Symbol.Barcode.ReaderData(1, 1024)

5) enable laser
r.Actions.Enable()

6) enable reading
r.Actions.Read(nrd)

7) add handler
AddHandler r.ReadNotify, AddressOf r_ReadNotify

8) read data in event
msgbox(d.Text)

That is all there is too it. Good day.

I had the same problem with LS4278, you need to configurate your keyboard and scanner in the same regional and language options

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.
