Re: Scanner Symbol Ls2208 keyboard not work

The scanner does not detect the keyboard host on power up and is locking up your keyboard. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. The barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. The scanner should start working immediately after the host type barcode is scanned.

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.

I have a Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner with an RS232 connection. My new computer only has USB. Can I simply buy a new cable for the scanner, or do I have to get a serial-usb adapter to make it work?

You can purchase a USB cable for the scanner. The cable comes out of the handle of the scanner. The part number of the USB cable is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

No power to keyboard using Y cable to PC for LS2208wedge scanner

If you have not already done so, scan the IBM PC/AT barcode from the Quick Start Guide that accompanied the scanner. If you do not have the QSG you can print the barcode from the Product Reference Guide found at this link:

The barcode you need is on Adobe page 56 of 342.

Can't install Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner on a PC (Wedge cable)

You will need to scan the barcode that configures the LS scanner to use keyboard wedge or even the set all defaults barcode. You will be able to find both of this on the product reference guide that you can download from in the support page.

LS2208 works - Keyboard does not

Check that the wedge is good. It is basically a hybrid spltter that powers both the scanner and the keyboard.
USB keyboard?
If so, you may want to go direct to either a serial port or a USB direct connection

Scanner doesn't turn on

Hello Loverboy,
the scanner turns on automatically as he he receives power from the host interface.
Please check the cables and connection. For RS232 interface would you need an external power supply. USB can power the scanner without external power supply. By Keyboard Wedge installation please connnect also the Keyboard.
