LS2208 barcode problem on Citrix

My company has several LS2208 Barcode scanners. We are unable to get them working in a citrix environment. We try to scan a barcode and it makes some funny noises and then nothing else happens.

Re: LS2208 barcode problem on Citrix

You you using USB versions of the device?

What device is hosting Citrix? (Maybe I should rephrase ... what computer is the LS2208 connected to and does it hold a citrix client)

Be advised that Citrix hosted on specialty devices like table pcs are finicky about the keyboard data timing (a synchronous operation)

Possibility #2 is power sag. When that scanner comes on it requires a lot of current, and often USB power (.5 amp max) isn't enough.

If you have a 15 foot USB cable on the scanner try a 6' striaght cable instead of one of the external power supply cables which provides a power pack and more power.

Reversing first 2 digits of barcode

Attached are the programming barcodes for the LS2208 solve this problem. Print the attached file and scan the barcodes in order 1-10. This will only work on a LS2208. If you scan the Set Defaults barcode it will erase this programming rule.

there is a document you will need to scan to do this, if you want to send me an e-mail i will send you the document

My Symbol scanner sits in a cradle, and the laser goes off and on, rather than remaining on full time. This is a problem, because when I pass a barcode under the unit, I have to wait until it flashes, and...

Yes Symbol LS2208 would be the best... it has an intellistand that enables presentation scanning and easy switching between hands free and hand held models..

LS2208 Can get it to work no driver

If your scanner shipped with a keyboard wedge cable and you are using a PS/2 to USB adapter all you should have to do is scan the IBM AT Notebook barcode on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. I suggest saving a copy of the document to your host then printing just that page. Scan the barcode then try scanning your barcode. If the computer still does not see your barcode try rebooting. If this still does not resolve your issue you may want to purchase a USB cable. The part number is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

If you have the CBA-U01-S07ZAR and the scanner is not sending data then you should scan the HID Keyboard Emulation barcode from the QRG that came with the device or Adobe page 109 of 342 of the guide referenced above. I hope this helps.

Scanner Symbol Ls2208 keyboard not work

The scanner does not detect the keyboard host on power up and is locking up your keyboard. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. The barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. The scanner should start working immediately after the host type barcode is scanned.
