LS2208 barcode scanner with keyboard wedge cable not working with wireless keyboard

I have been using LS2208 barcode scanner since 3 years. I connected it to my PC using Keyboard wedge cable, to which wired keyboard is attached. However recently I purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse. When I disconnected the old keyboard, the scanner stopped reading data. So, can anyone guide me how to make scanner work with the same Keyboard wedge cable without attaching a keyboard to it

Hello I have trouble with laser ls2208 it is PS2 connection but i have only USB on PC so i buy converter ps2 to usb but after connected scanner read product but not send text to pc .


You can try scanning the Keyboard Wedge host type barcode IBM AT Notebook then rebooting your PC. If this does not work you should order a CBA-U01-S07ZAR. This is the USB cable for use with the LS2208. Zebra Technologies support solution ADC-00217 addresses this type of issue. The article was written for connecting to a laptop, but your connection is similar if you do not have a keyboard attached to the cable. This link will take you to the solution which includes the IBM AT Notebook barcode. portal motorolasolutions com Print the article and scan the barcode then reboot your PC.

LS2208 Can get it to work no driver


If your scanner shipped with a keyboard wedge cable and you are using a PS/2 to USB adapter all you should have to do is scan the IBM AT Notebook barcode on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. I suggest saving a copy of the document to your host then printing just that page. Scan the barcode then try scanning your barcode. If the computer still does not see your barcode try rebooting. If this still does not resolve your issue you may want to purchase a USB cable. The part number is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

If you have the CBA-U01-S07ZAR and the scanner is not sending data then you should scan the HID Keyboard Emulation barcode from the QRG that came with the device or Adobe page 109 of 342 of the guide referenced above. I hope this helps.

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 www.symbol.com 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.

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.
