Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld

1 Answer

Transfer info from the digital weight scaleto quickbooks

Think what you are doing: scanning a barcode or key-entering an item number, and then pressing F5, key-entering weight and hitting Enter. Right? Your scanner integrated with your keyboard. Make the scanner work for you.
Look closely at barcode of scale printed label, there are two parts: item number and weight or price (price is not good for POS, you have to make your scale to print weight). First part always starts from 200 next three digits are programmable PLU from the scale (I programmed 301 for Dutch cheese), enter 200301 as an UPC for Dutch cheese into QB POS (I am using 6.0 version) QB POS will represent it as 0020100000304 it’s OK. Use the same POS item number and PLU of your scale in case you need edit an item.
My barcode scanner is Symbol LS-2208 (most of Symbols will behave same) Download small program 123Scan from Motorola or Symbol website. This program has almost no help, but after several tries you will figure out how to program ADF rules (scanners manual also helpful). All you need just a few steps in one rule: recognize barcode from the scale which always starts from 200, then send first 6 digits as UPC, then send function key F5, then send next 4 digits as weight, and send Enter. (the above is a solution taken from a post on the net)

If I do the above how does the scanner differentiate between the digital scale from the barcode and other items that I scan in a retail store?

You would need to add an criteria or the rule, like barcode length or type. Than is the the scanner able to understand which barcode should be handled by the specific rule.

How do i send a string of actions after scanning one barcode on symbol ls2208


You will have many issues doing this, the best way is to create a barcode with all this info in it.
Its normal to have 1 or 2 post amble events but not that many.

We are using a Metrologic MS9520 (keyboard wedge) with QuickBooks. It won't scan barcodes provided by Quickbooks, even though it's supposed to be compatible. We've downloaded about every driver, config,...


What I would first is to bring the barcode scanner back to factory defaults. To do this you will need the manual that came with the scanner, on the first page is a bar code that say "enter/exit configuration mode" scan that first and you will hear three beeps, then scan the bar code for "recall defaults" and rescan the bar code to "enter/exit configuration mode" then retry using your scanner, if this does not work bring up "notepad" on your computer and try to scan any bar code form any retail item. This should scan, if it does net then it could be a defective scanner. See page 2 on the manual link

I have the LS4071 scanner and I'm using it with Quickbooks for my retail store. When I scan an item the code scans perfectly in the "Item" window but it does not advance to the "Description"...


Yes...you need to set-up the scanner with a new "Suffix" -- contact the Symbol Help Desk at 1-800-653-5350 and they will help you.

I would like to transmit EAN-13 bar code without check digit, but closed by ENTER.


If you would like the LS2208 to transmit only the first twelve digits of an EAN-13 barcode followed by an enter you will have to write an Advanced Data Formatting rule using barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide found here: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=114420371&stateId=1%200%20114410810

The barcodes you will print and scan in the order they are listed are:
Begin New Rule
EAN-13 (from the Critera pages of the ADF section)
Send Next 12 Characters
Send Enter key
Save Rule

If all other barcodes require an enter key make sure you scan Scan Options, Data Suffix, Enter (from the same manual or from the Quick Start Guide) before scanning the ADF rule above.
