Question about Symbol LS1902T Handheld

Open Question

USB keyboard will not work with LS1902T scanner

I had a USB Logitech keyboard and used a ps2 to usb connector. The USB (keyboard) went into the connector and the other part of the Y cable went into the back of the computer. This worked fine. I have now replaced the keyboard for another Logitech but the keyboard will not work unless I plug the USB directly into a USB port and the scanner makes a funny noise when I scan it.

Please help

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.

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.

A solution to your problem would be to use usb cable to connect the scanner to the POS system. I have had a similar issue in the past where the IBM pos system did not like the cable that the customer had and we've got around this by using usb instead.

I hope this helps you although it may not be the kind of answer that you were looking for,

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.

I have a dell inspiron desktop that has no ps2 port, only USB. From my older computer I would like to use my microsoft ergonomic keyboard that has a ps2 plug. I bought a PS2 to USB adapter but when I...


Hello,

The adapter you purchased is for use with a PS/2 mouse only. The only keyboard adapters will have keyboard and mouse in a "Y" adapter. The single adapters will not work for keyboards because they do not have the conversion electronics to go from PS/2 to USB, mice can work on either one. Do a google search for "usb to PS2 dual port adapter" you can get them for around $2 plus shipping.

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

The keyboard works outside of the windows 7 environment but once it turns on the keyboard and mouse dont work


Have you tried a different keyboard and mouse?, your keyboard and mouse on a different pc?
Is it usb? ps2 wireless?
Only the wireless option would need a driver
Usb will work if they are ok
ps2 may need settings changed in the bios to make it work.

Is there a driver for barcode scanner i am holding Model No - LS1902T-1000 company - symbol tech inc. hotsville n.y.


The barcode scanners are usually using ans Standard PS/2 or USB interface in the same way as keyboard, therefore you dont need an driver.
You would probably need to setup the barcode scanner according to the used connection/interface.
Here is the manual for yur scanner http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=189660311&stateId=1%200%20189654341

The scanner is scanning but no data is transmitted to the PC


I also purchased a Symbol LS4071 and 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 - the connector is split like a "Y") 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.

Hello,
it depends on the configuration of your host and scanner. Usually there it works like this:
Connect the scanner to USB or per Keyboard Wedge Select the correct language set for your Scanner Try to scan your barcode if this will not work - enable the barcode you need to scan with the programming barcode from Manual
The Barcodes needed to set up the device are listed in the Reference Guide at http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5093002apdf

The scanners won't scan information after being programmed


I would scan default barcode again. If you are using PS2 connectors. Scan barcode for PS2 keyboard. And USB for USB connectors. Most likely it is not seeing the device. Or treating as a keyboard as it should.
