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.

SOURCE: I have an LS4071 with an RL474 base. The cable

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,

Why won't my Logitech Traackman MArble FX work with Windows 7?


If you are trying to convert your Logitech Trackman Marble FX from PS2 to USB so it will work with Windows 7, you can't just convert the port type - you have to get an "adapter" that converts the PS2 signal to a USB signal. See for ATen - UC 100KMA. WEB SIte:
http://www.aten.com/products/KVM/KVM-Modules-&-Accessories/PS2-to-USB-Adapter~UC100KMA.html#.U5sYrCi4NAE.

It allows you to convert a PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse/trackball with the one device. It's what I use and it works just fine. The regular $2.00 port adapter was useless.

They are on EBAY sometimes for $20 or so. GOOD LUCK. :)

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

How do you disable the HP info center pop up


I had a user with the same problem using a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. This is a similar setup to most Logitech wireless desktop kits, there is one wireless receiver for both devices and it has a USB connector as well as a normally unused PS/2 (it comes with an adapter for the USB so you can use this on an old computer without USB). The user went on a trip and another "helpful" user that was in his office noticed the wireless receiver's PS/2 cable unplugged and decided to plug it in for him. I'm actually amazed that it worked as well as it did but Windows didn't recognize the keyboard correctly (103 key keyboard?). All I did to solve this problem was to unplug the PS/2 conector and load the correct software for the keyboard. I also put tape and a note on the unneeded connector to prevent this from happening again.

Sister moved her PC and now the keyboard's keys are locked.


Must be a PS2 or a IBM connector as SCSI is a hard drive and connector type. Most computer stores sell adapters for these,but considering the price of keyboards she should just upgrade to USB.You can get one for less 10 bucks these days.

Usb keyboard not support windowsxp


Hi,

You using a USB connection wtih a USB cable from Logitech? And, did you keyboard come with a USB to PS2 adapter plug.

Because you would have to use this adapter and then install the Logitech software, once that is done you can shut down and use the USB connector from that point onwards unless you would just feel more comfortable with the PS2 connector.

Otherwise you will need to borrow or use a PS2 keyboard boot up into Windows, install the logitech software, shut down and then try attaching your USB keyboard and you should be fine after that.

You can simply remove the PS2 adapter from the end of the cable to use the USB connector instead.

Remove the green part and use the black USB connector instead.
