Hi, Firstly you need to know exactly what 'symbology' or type of barcode you are trying to scan. E.G. 128CODE, ect. Once you know this make sure 'DataWedge' is installed and go to the settings section of the software.ensure that the type of barcode you are printing is selected in the settings. After this is should work.
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
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".
hello, once you have it connected to your computer via usb, serial or keyboard wedge, you scan the barcodes that come in the user guide to set it up, its pretty much a plug and play. you can find the quick start guide at
Hello khlai. The quick answer to your question is: Yes. An LS2208 can decode (read) code 39 barcodes. However, since you are reading a barcode on a tape, I would predict that the symbology is actually 'Trioptic Code 39". Trioptic Code 39 is a variant of standard Code 39 that is used for marking computer/tape cartridges. I've uploaded the LS2208 manual to my company's website for you. Just follow these instructions and you'll be right as rain.
The Quick Start Guide has a Default Barcode. Scan that. Code 39 and 93 should be on by default. If not download the Reference Guide and there are barcodes in that manual that enable/disable all symbologies.
The scanner must be set to the IBM PC/AT host type. Unfortunately, these scanners are not plug and play. They do not detect the keyboard host on power up so the host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. It should remember that host type until you set defaults. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. Print and scan this barcode. The scanner should start working immediately.
