Symbol PPT 2800 Scanner Problem

One of my 2800's is only throwing a scan beam about 1/2 inch wide. The others are much wider than this, which means that they are usable. Is there any way to adjust this errant scanner that doesn't involve sending it to Symbol and writing them a big check?

There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

It can read all standard symbologies apart from PDF symbologies unless it is equipped with an imager scan engine.

Warm boot the MC55 if that doesn't help then cold boot it, if that doesn't help then reload the Operating system, if that doesn't fix it then send it back to Motorola for a warranty repair.

Does anyone have a successful experience using this to scan outdoors in full daylight?

not sure if you found a solution , but I figure I''ll share mine anyways.
we had the same problem in scanning outdoor so this is what we did:
there are 2 types of MC9090 standard range and short range. the short range works batter for outdoor sine it has a wider longer beam. you will loose in distance , you will have to come closer to scan but it will work ....

let me know if you came up with something else ...

Can the Symbol LS4804-I400A scanner scan a QR code bar code?

No, this is a Laser Scanner. The laser beam can scan the barcode only in 1 direction (1D Barcodes). For QR Barcode (2D) you would need an Imager (Digital Scanner).

Laser beam too short

We can change the scan engine for you if you'd like - it's the only way to solve your issue. You would need a Lorax scan engine (scan up close up to approx 32feet).

Let me know if you'd like more information:
