Re: 123Scan File

P370 WILL NOT connect with your terminal or base, so forget about this intent and go for the goal which is loading your programming to your scanner. According to Motorola the work around is simple and faster than trying to resolve this.
Start with Reseting the scanner completly back to Defaults.
In the 123Scan, PRINT Barcodes and the rules ADF Rules of your programming.
Start scanning from
"Parameter Settings" until the last page barcode "Reset Scanner".
That is it. Problem solved.
You will need to do this for every new programming Rule.

How do i program the LS2208 not to send the EAN-13 check digit and send ENTER key / carriage return

LS2208 needs a ADF Rule added to it to send the "Enter" on the end of all code. Scan123 is also an easy solution. Download it if you don't have it. Basically in Scan123 select the type of scanner you are working with, then select the ADF Rules tab. Make a new rule that says ANY Code, Any Length, and then under actions I put Line 1 "Send all that remains" Line 2 "Send Numeric Key <Enter>. Save the rule. Then select the Symbologies Tab, Select UPC/EAN Tab and select what options you want. Then select the Print Icon, Tick Symbologies , ADF Rules & Programming BarCodes boxes. Print them out and then scan them into your scanner. Job done

I have a newly aquired P370 Symbol Scanner and I cannot get it to automatically "enter" (carriage return) after a barcode is scanned. I have reset the default application, and scanned the Suffix...

One of four reasons for this:

1. The scanner firmware does not support it. Firmware less than rev F does not support the enter- I do not think this is your issue though. You check the firmware revision in the main menu option 4 or scan the barcode out of the Product Reference Guide.

2. Custom firmware on the scanner prevents the enter from being sent. Again check the firmware. If it starts with anything other than an N you should consider sending the device in to Motorola to have it upgraded to standard firmware.

3. The cradle firmware is less than G. If the cradle is less than G it will strip the enter off of the data being sent. If the firmware in your scanner is new enough you can check the revision using menu option 4 in the scanner.

4. An MCL application on the scanner. If you see something other than SKU: on the display the scanner has a custom application on it. The application would have to be modified to add the enter or removed from the device.

I need to strip the last character from the barcode when scanned with a Symbol P370 scanner. Is there a procedure for that?

If the barcode is a UPC-A or UPC-E you would scan the Do Not Transmit UPC-A or UPC-E Check Digit barcode from the P370 Product Reference Guide.

If the barcode is something other than a UPC-A or UPC-E the last character can be stripped using Advanced Data Formatting which would require the use of 123Scan. You can download 123Scan from

The P370 is NOT supported by the newer 123Scan2.

How do I get my Symbol LS2208 to recognize EAN128. I need it to prefix [C1 when a EAN 128 is scanned.

you need to scan some of the bar codes found on the manual.
Find the product reference manual -usually found on the cd with the scanner or download from motorola site - and in chapter "symbologies" scan "ENABLE CODE128" barcode.
To have prefix when a code is scanned, scan "SCAN OPTIONS" then " then "ENTER"
Last set the preffix value by scanning "SCAN PREFFIX" then four digits that correspond to the character you want to use as preffix.
If you need more than one character for preffix then you will need the Advanced formatting manual, which ican be downloaded from motorola. In this case you need to create a "rule".

Let me know if you need further assistance

You may need to enter two "rules", each adding an "enter" to the data. This is programmed by scanning special barcodes in the manual, which you can download here:

Suffix with 2 x ENTER

Try programming it by setting up a pair of ADF rules, each adding an "enter". This is done by scanning configuration barcodes from the manual in the correct sequence. You can get the manual here:

Is it possible to send two suffix in symbol ls2208

Yes it is possible.

You will need to create the following adf rule which you can do using 123scan.

the barcodes generated will be the following:

Begin new rule.
Send all that remains
Send Extended key <Enter>
Send extended key <Enter>
Save Rule.

If you can't generate them, I can send you a pdf document with them already created.
