    We are Running Wavelink/Telnet-CE emulating VT100 and We can only read Code 39 barcodes. Where can we find info on how to add Code I25 and 128, UPCA, etc to the list? A regular hand-held scanner reads the I-2-of-5, but not the MC9090-G!!! How can I activate this standard?

For anyone else who has this issue. Goto website.

In the downloads section...
Select your scanner make/model, use + on Wavelink TE, + on windows version IE CE5.0 etc and d/l the Wavelink TE ActiveSync software. There is also a helpful manual in the + Documentation - wltn_s90_ce41_8b_4in1_us_n.pdf.

Your need to reg with (free), to d/l the software.

I edited the MC9090 file from the scanner instead of creating a new one(Apps/TE called termcfg.bin), as i only needed the I 2of5 barcode enabled.

MS ActiveSync - drag file off to PC - Apps/TE called termcfg.bin. Back this file up before making changes.
TE ActiveSync - Open file, add extra options/barcodes, save
MS ActiveSync - drag file back to Apps/TE on scanner, reboot etc. (I also put this in the Apps/TE/Config folder as well, as the same file is located there as well)

Have a new scanner that I used for 6 months with no problems then it wouldn't scan by barcodes. I tried everything to get it to work again but still doesn't. the batteries are all charged and everything...

Find attached the configuration manual. Read pages 23-30.

As I see it, you need to check:
- Simbology you are reading (Code 39, Code 128, UPC, etc)
- Set the barcode simbology you are using.

Settings options are really clear in the manual, you should just follow steps.

MC9190 will not scan a certain barcode, but the MC9090 will, what could be the problem?

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.

We need to convert UPC-A barcode number to EAN-13

Most scanners will convert UPCA to EAN13 as you scan if you have that setting checked. A 0 will be added in front of the UPCA to make it an EAN13. Nothing else changes. You can read about this stuff on Wikipedia.

Enabling NCR 7875 flatbed scanner to read Code 128 barcodes

On a 7876, you need to scan the sequence “17130” is to add 128 tag readability. Not too sure if the 7875 is the same.

Extra zero

The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)

Scanner doesn't scan all barcodes

these scanners are user configurable, to prevent scanning of an inappropriate barcode, only the required barcode schema are enabled, if you look in your code book you will find that there is a page with listings and examples of the various different barcode schemes, in the section before that there should be a list of barcodes that allow you to program the device to use whichever barcode scheme you wish (as long as it is compatible with the scanner)

so you can enable the scanner to read 128, code 39 or EAN and also you can configure prefixes / suffixes depending on your software's requirements
