Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld

1 Answer

Programmed symbol LS4278 scanners. Tested barcodes successfully. A week later 50% of the scanners had to be reprogrammed. We are using USB connections. Has anyone reported this or experienced this? We are using these in an acute care setting and cannot tolerate scanner failure.

Hello my name is kathy Ditterline and I was having the same problem as you, I have learned that if you have your scanner off for very long it will lose the program. I have learned that if i am not going to use it i don't turn it off i just turn the sound all the way down. I have not lost a thing since i started doing this. I hope this will help. I would be happy for you to let me know if this was a help. k.ditterline@yahoo.com

LS4278 looses it's scanned settings daily, rescan or reboot of PC required.


If you rely on power from the USB, once you power down the PC the scanners do not charge. A simple fix for this is to purchase a power supply. We have these in stock ready to ship. Please call us at 888-317-3440. The part number is PWRS-14000-253R

My canner ls4278 is making a sound and turnin red when i scan


It could be the scanner is not paired to the cradle. The scanner will be once for the barcode and then four times for the communication error. Make sure the cradle has power; it will pull power from a USB port. Scan the pairing barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner will give a high low high low beep and then shortly after give a short low short high beep indicating the radios have paired. If the scanner still beeps four times after doing this, the host type may not be set. If connecting USB scan HID Keyboard from the LS4278 Product Reference Guide.

LS4278 scanner can't read digits


Hi, try scanning French Windows barcode from the USB section of the LS4278 Product Reference Guide. The barcode is on Adobe page 147 of 414. You may also have to scan the Enable Keypad Emulation barcode from Adobe page 150 of 414, but I would do this only after testing with the French Windows setting first. I suggest saving a copy of the document before printing the barcodes just to make it easier to print. Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

How can you use a symbol model ls4278 with a usb converter for the ps/2 plug?


The scanner will probably give you error beeps because you are not using a PS/2 keyboard. All you should have to do is scan the IBM AT Notebook barcode from the LS4278 Product Reference Guide. The link below will take you to the manual and the barcode is on Adobe page 104 of 418. I would suggest saving a copy then printing just the page you need.

If the scanner does not start working immediately you should reboot your computer.

Are you able to please give me the reset instructions for a symbol scanner? model: LS4278


Hi, I would be happy to assist you in resetting your LS4278, but it would be helpful to know how you are connected. The Set Defaults barcode will reset all of the scanner settings, but it will also cause you to lose the "pair" (communications) between the scanner and cradle. If you try scanning a barcode at this point you will receive a single beep followed by four error beeps. This just means the scanner is not talking to the cradle. Scan the barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner should give a high low high low series of beeps followed by a short low short high. The short low short high indicates the scanner is talking to the cradle again and you are ready to scan.

If you are connected through the USB port and scan a barcode and get one beep, but do not see data on your host try unplugging the black power supply cable from the cradle. Try scanning your barcode again and it should show up on the host.
