I just got an Orbit scanner with Keyboard wedge interface. Upon connecting it to the PC. The test beep is heard. After that the lasers can be seen blinking. But the scanner is not reading any codes. Not even the programming codes. I can not get further than this I do not know any other way to program the scanner but by scanning barcodes. I downloaded the programming software, but they only refer to rs232 interface.
How can I fix this ? Oh yes I tried more than one computer with no luck

<p>Bar code symbols are composed of a number of adjacent bars
and spaces of different widths of pre-defined codes. A barcode scanner is used
to read or scan the bar code symbol to represent the information to decode.
Once the symbol is scanned by a handheld reading device or another, can then be
used by computer software to track inventory and perform other functions.
Microsoft Excel is a computer application that use bar code information can
make the business perform. <br />
<p>1. Insert bar code scanner to your computer using the
"interface cable keyboard wedge". The keyboard wedge interface cable
looks like the printer port of your computer, and differs only in that a
connection between the scanner bar code and serial number of your computer or
USB port. The cable is provided as a peripheral pattern with hand-held bar code
scanners. <br />
<p>2. Open Microsoft Excel on your computer after the bar code
scanner connected to your computer. <br />
<p>3. Links on the Excel cell to the bar code to enter and bar
code scanning to load it into Microsoft Excel. <br />
<p>4. View the data in Excel file is translated into a vision
of the bar code information. <br />
By Keyboard / Display unit I'm assuming your using a PC, thin client or dumb terminal. If you are using a PC then the easiest way to do this is to get a bar-code scanner with a USB interface, no programming should be required with possibly the exception being of adding a "Enter" (CR LR) after each scan.
If you have a dumb terminal then you may need to look at trying to use an RS232 connection (if one exists) or a keyboard wedge solution where the scanner is plugged into the keyboard port along with the keyboard.
In any event pin outs would vary depending upon the scanner you want to use and the device you are connecting the scanner to.
You will need to scan the barcode that configures the LS scanner to use keyboard wedge or even the set all defaults barcode. You will be able to find both of this on the product reference guide that you can download from www.symbol.com in the support page.
the scanner turns on automatically as he he receives power from the host interface.
Please check the cables and connection.
For RS232 interface would you need an external power supply.
USB can power the scanner without external power supply.
By Keyboard Wedge installation please connnect also the Keyboard.
it looks like the scanner lost the settings. As power is there, so connection is ok. The several (four) beeps after reading the barcode means communication error.
Please try to find the original sheet with configuration barcodes or download it from support.symbol.com website, you would need to scan the barcode for IBM PC/AT & IBM Compatibles from Keyboard Wedge Chapter.
first you need to know what the interface is
if its keyboard wedge programme for keyboard emulation.
if its serial you will need some type of pos programme to run it in
if its usb it should be plug and play
hope this helps
