Question about PSC QuickScan QS6500BT (QS65B3040100401) Barcode Scanner

Troubles with connection?

Hi there! I've a problem with QS6500BT Scanner... There's an orange light blinking under the aerial sign on base and it beeps three times repeatedly. It looks like base can't establish connection with a scanner, but scanner is fine, charged and placed onto it... I tried to turn-off/turn-on the base, checked it's connection to computer - everything's just fine, but the problem is still unresolved. I also tried to walk away with a scanner and then to come back in time, so I left the range of signal - nothing. Can anyone give me an advise of how to fix that problem? Thanks!

Re: Troubles with connection?

If this item is second hand it may have been associated with more than one scanner, You should be able to log into the base station and read the error logs, and check the scanner associations. you could always try a factory reset, but you would have to re-associate the scanner and configure the base station again Gareth

Hi, I need to know how to program the DB Power barcode scanner model # BCE0008

Unfortunately, this is all I can find for instructions.
Operation Instructions:
1. Connect the USB receiver to the host (e.g.: PC)
2. Pull the trigger to start the scanner. It works on two beeps.
Notes: 1. The charging port on the scanner is for battery charging only. Do not connect it to data cables.
2. The LED light at the scanner bottom is on and red under charging and off when charging is finished.
3. During working, the scanner will auto shut down in case of not in use for 20 second.
4. The receiver was paired to the reader at factory. Do not pair again unless necessary. When self pairing is needed, please first read the code CHANNEL SETTING. (Before setting, please reset the receiver until the light turns long green. Reset it to the light off when setting is finished.
Package Including: 1 x Wireless Barcode Scanner 1 x Receiver 1 x Charging Cable 1 x Instruction

Honeywell 2020-5 suddenly stopped scanning. The lights are on the charger base, but the scanner seems dead.

I guess there is a problem with the base station. Let me tell my story:
I got a 4820 scanner with 2020 base. All worked fine till I experimented with scanning images. After a few images (which I cannot retrieve/receive properly due to lack of software) the scanner seems dead. From time to time a short buzz sounds when triggered, but no light or else.
So I bought another 4820, a slightly different model. Seems to work fine but has to be paired with the base to get the data. Now after pairing this scanner shows the same issues as my first and refuses to scan.
I installed QiuckView and HSM-USB-Serial-Driver on a virtual machine at my MAC to flash firmware to base and scanners. But the base device does not show up in the program (althought it is shown in the USB device table). Maybe I can try on a native WindowsPC ...

The most unlikely scenario is that all the bases are defective. If you power your PC off every night, you should purchase a power supply so the scanners can continuously charge. Another issue may be that you need new batteries (also unlikely if they stopped working at the same time). Also try swapping scanners and bases (one scanner from one base and place it with another base) make sure you firmly place the bottom of the scanner in the base to verify there is a good connection with the charging pins.

Hello Patty,
This is a fairly common problem with these little guys. First thing is to make sure the power plug is "all the way" into the base. Sometimes the base will have a little o-ring that will kind of pop the plug in. I've fallen victim to this many times.
If the power plug is in all the way, then the base is the culprit. Are you using a USB cable to connect the base to your PC?

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.

Datalogic QS6500BT barcode scanner and 2D codes

Usually some symbologies are disabled at default.

i think you need the manual and scan the barcode to enable it for scanning.

the links is:

it's chapter 6-191 or page 279 in pdf.

you have to begin with scanning "Start" en end with scanning "END"

becarefull with printing this page and not the whole manual. there are 336 pages.

good luck
