    After providing my e-mail I received 2 solutions.

    1 for prefix INSERT and 1 for prefix INSERT+ENTER.

    Regardles of the application for wich I had to use the prefix, at least 1 of the solutions would have been the answer to my question.

GryphonGM4100 i need to set global prefix. I select"enter Programming mode"->SetGlobal Prefix-> 02 ->"exit programming mode"(x2). It works If i select only 4 characters (ex:0202), but i need only two.

yes dear each two numbers represent one character.
If you go to ASCII chart two hex number represent one number , so to get prefix like for example these two characters AB you need to scan 40 for A and 41 for B so these 4 characters.

Best luck to you.

How to program a bar code scanner to have 2 Tilde in prefix

Hi, to program two tiles before the data you must use Advanced Data Formatting bar codes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. You will need to print and scan the following barcodes:
Begin new rule
Send tilde
Send tilde
Send all data that remains
Send enter key (if you need an enter after the data )
Save rule
Go to the Motorola Solutiond Support Portal and search for LS2208 PRG. The guide has also been stored on

Default Barcode as the one used in the manual

I don't have a manual with me tonight .. but I think its a code 3 of 9 with a twist. If the codes in your manual only have 2 barwidths (narrow and wide) my memory is correct. If there are more than 2 barwidths its c128.

A standard c3 of 9 barcode has a start-stop pattern that decodes into an '*'

When '12345 is rendered into a C3of9 barcode the code actually holds *12345*

Barcode readers spot the code by looking for the *. Metrologic's codes are using a different start stop pattern. Again if memory services me they use a '#' so this makes the code "unreadable" by all but a verifier. It also means that most barcode production programs can't print it ...becuase they impose the standard for start/stop patterns.

The easy way to create one of those cards (for Metrologic) is to forget all the yadda I'm giving you. Instead figure out which pages you need . Next copy the pages of barcodes you used to get the setup correct. Then do a cut and paste job onto a blank page of paper. It goes quite quickly and the barcodes copy well.

If none of that helps then PCscan a page of codes in your manual and email the image to me. My eyeballs are (sadly) calibrated to read barcodes and I can quickly tell you what you've got.
Good lucuk

Letter G appear at the end of barcode

you have a "suffix" programmed into the barcode scanner. this is a common feature and allows for auditing (like a user signature) these can be removed, The code book should have pages of option programming barcodes, in which you should be able to find a section on programming prefixes and suffixes, there should be a control barcode which clears all suffixes. This should solve your problem
