Hi,
Your scanner is set up for full Ascii mode.
$B = CTRL B
%I = >

Re-program to enable "Code 39" and disable "Code 39 Full Ascii"

In Code 39:
$B = Control key on
%I = Tab

Hope this helps.

Hi, can ls2208 scan a memorex 9840 tape bar code label? Understand that in conform to the Code 39 Barcode Specification. It doesnt seem to work. thank you.


Hello khlai. The quick answer to your question is: Yes. An LS2208 can decode (read) code 39 barcodes. However, since you are reading a barcode on a tape, I would predict that the symbology is actually 'Trioptic Code 39". Trioptic Code 39 is a variant of standard Code 39 that is used for marking computer/tape cartridges. I've uploaded the LS2208 manual to my company's website for you. Just follow these instructions and you'll be right as rain.
  1. Go to www.shiftintoblue.com/resources/ls2208_manual.pdf and save the manual to your computer (or print directly from the web.)
  2. Go to and print page 194 (12-28) that contains the Trioptic Code 39 barcodes.
  3. Take the printed page and scan the barcode labeled "Enable Trioptic Code 39".
Then you're all done! That should fix the problem. If you have any other problems, feel free to send me a message or email me. I hope this helps. Good luck!

If your barcode is $V scan the following barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide.
Begin New Rule
Specific String At Start
$ (from the Alpha-Numeric section of the guide)
S (from the Alpha-Numeric section of the guide)
End of Message (from the Alpha-Numeric section of the guide)
Send Control S
Save Rule

That should do it.

This is the quick start guide for the LS2208. On the first page you will see a section titled Carriage Return/Line Feed. Scan these three bar codes from top to bottom. That's it.
