Why Symbol LS2208 keyboard wedge not scanning correctly?


Do you have more than one of this model scanner? If so, I would test a different one on the same computer to make sure it is not a computer issue. Be sure to test it in the same USB port to get an accurate test.

Having a second scanner would also allow you to switch out the cable connecting the scanner to the computer. The end of the cable which plugs into the scanner is an RJ45/Ethernet end. You will need a flat head screw driver to push down on the tab to release it from the scanner. Swap the cables and see if the problem follows the cable or the scanner. If it follows the cable, you can replace the cable for cheap. If it follows the scanner, I would plug the scanner into the working computer and reset the scanner to factory default using the Symbol Book of programming barcodes.

Try a different USB port with the original scanner.

You can also reset to factory default if you don't have a second scanner using Symbols book of programming barcodes.

How do I get my Symbol LS2208 to recognize EAN128. I need it to prefix [C1 when a EAN 128 is scanned.


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".

Let me know if you need further assistance

What would I put under the suffix and prefix when bar coding? My scanner is Symbole LS 2208


Hello Norma, you can use the suffix or prefix to send characters, which are not included in the barcodes tgehter with the scanned barcode data.
If you dont need any character before or after the data, you can leave it blank.
It is usually used to add an Enter or Tab to switch to the next line, while scanning to some application like excel.

Hello, if all your barcodes have the same structure, it will an easy task. You would need to scan following barcodes from ADF chapter in the Product Reference Guide located at http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880807apdf
Create New Rule Send Characters Up To Space Character in Alfanumeric Section Skip Ahead 1 Send All That Remains Save Rule
This will by all scanned barcodes send all characters up to the space character, skip the space and send the rest of data.

I cannot scan code93


Code 93 is not enabled on default. Scan the Enable Code 93 barcode from Adobe page 190 of 342 from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. You didn't say which scanner you have but most Motorola scanners use the same barcodes. If the scanner does not accept this barcode then look up the PRG for your scanner and find the barcode in that manual. You may also need to scan the Code 93 Any Length barcode from the next page if your barcode is less than four characters.

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.
