Symbol barcode scanner LS4071 + base RL475

Hi, you will need the 25-17821-20 and STI80-0200R cables to connect to PS/2. You must have a PS/2 keyboard for this connection.

If you would prefer to connect to a USB port you should get the 25-17821-20 cable with the STI85-0200R.

The RL-475 was for the IBM, but it also supported Synapse which is the STI cable.

Symbol HotShot LS2106 sounds like it's scanning, however, no data/information is displayed once scanned. Connecting to Windows XP with a USB converted to PS2 cable. Are there reset bar codes available that...

The LS2106 did not support laptop mode so the PS/2 wedge needs to have a PS/2 keyboard attached to the cable. If that does not work I would suggest trying to find a 25-31617-01 Synapse adapter cable and STI85-0200 USB Synapse cable. This would allow you to connect the scanner right to the USB port and it should work without any extra programming. I believe the cost of the two cables (if you have to purchase them new) is almost as much as a new LS1203 scanner with USB cable. At least with the new scanner you would get a three year warranty.

4 beep error when scanning barcode

The four beep error is a communications error. Usually it indicates the scanne is not configured properly. If the scanner is connecting with the CBA-K01-S07PAR cable and you are using a PS/2 keyboard you should have scanned the IBM PC/AT barcode from Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide.

If you do not have a PS/2 keyboard attached and are using a USB to PS/2 adapter you should scan the IBM AT Notebook from that same page. If the scanner does not start working immediately you may have to reboot your system. If the scanner still does not work the CBA-U01-S07ZAR USB cable might be a better choice.

If you are not connecting with either of these cables and are still getting the four beep error a call to the Motorola support center may be in order. Their phone number is 800-653-5350.

Symbol M2004 scanner scans bar code using hyperterminal to test.But it will not scan into word or into my pos maid software.Attached via com port. any ideas

I know this is an old thread but it may be useful to someone.
Model: Symbol M2004-I111 cyclone.
Look up no."73-39696-111" for a pdf of programming instructions.
The large jack plug goes to a security tag demagnetiser. Though mine has only two wires, a black and a red. Scanner works with nothing connected to this end. I think pressing the button on the top of the scanner sends a pulse to the demag. to disable the security tag.
The scanner needs a powered com port to work. Usually only on purpose built till machines not ordinary pc ports.
Good luck i have not been able to figure out the complexities of getting it to do what I want yet (no read all code!).

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.

Ls 9100

The first thing you need to do is set the LS9100 to know it's connected to a synapse cable. Scan the "set all defaults" barcode and then the "set synpase host" barcode. Once you have done this you can program the unit for the specific synpase cable your purchase, such as USB, PS/2, etc.
