Symbol LS4278 scanner loosing program configuration

Installed 500 scanners (Symbol LS4278) in an acute care setting using USB port. All programmed and tested successfully. Three weeks later 50% had to be reprogramed. We are not sure why this would happen.

SOURCE: Are you able to please give me the reset

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.

SOURCE: the scanners won't scan information after being programmed

I would scan default barcode again. If you are using PS2 connectors. Scan barcode for PS2 keyboard. And USB for USB connectors. Most likely it is not seeing the device. Or treating as a keyboard as it should.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Need to reload Symbol PDT 6846 scanners

To configure the terminal Ctrl-C to drop you to a DOS prompt then type cfg11 this will then take you a configuration screen where you can enter wireless and IP settings.

I can’t say about what program you are trying to load. If you get the system to associate then the next step is to configure the host settings.

FUNC-CTL-R at the Connect to Host screen

Password: system

Then you can add host settings.

It’s a shame we fix PDT6846's all the time and if we replace the board reconfigure them for the customer.

If you need any more help then please do not hesitate to contact us:-

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.

Hi my name is christian canola and i purchased a symbol ls2208 barcode scanner from geminicomputers and i downloaded the program 123 scan2 for my barcode scanner and i click on my scanner is connected via...


Hi Christian, if your scanner was manufactured before February 2010 it may not be able to communicate directly with 123Scan2 so you wont be able to upgrade firmware with the program, but you will still be able to use it to create configuration sheets. These are the only two uses for 123Scan2.

To create a configuration sheet without "finding" the scanner click Create New Configuration then choose My scanner is NOT connected. Select the LS2208 and click on the blue firmware button to get into the configuration. When you have completed your configuration click the Print bar codes selection at the top of the window and when the file comes up be sure to click on the Bar code formatting menu and change the Bar code type to 1D One setting per barcode if it is not already there. Older scanners will not work with concatenated 1D barcodes where 123Scan2 puts more than one setting into a barcode.

My Symbol LS4278 will not transfer data to the computer. I have the PS2 cable and added a PS2 to USB. I get a beep as if the barcode is read, but it's not transferring the data to the program.


Hello,

Be sure to use a full PS2 to USB adapter not just the plug adapter. The one to use has the cable and a small encoder box in the middle, usually for keyboard and mouse together. We have seen some of the cheaper adapters not pass the proper voltages to the scanner for a good read. The ones we suggest to our customers is made by Belkin part # F5U119VE1SN

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

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.

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
