Question about Datalogic QuickScan® QS6000 Plus (6660120010030201) Handheld Barcode Scanner
I have a PSC QuickScan 6000 scanner that was purchased used. It did not included a cable so I found Part no 8-0424-03 (PS/2 keyboard wedge) to connect it to a PC.
When the trigger is pulled nothing is happens.
I have found that the scanner will work for about 5 seconds when I hit any key on the keyboard but it does not seem to accept or read the barcode. I have tried the reset barcode and going though the setup to create a base program for it, but the scanner never gives me the blinking green light to tell me it is in program mode.

That scanner has been constrained to accept a digit length of 12 or less .. probably IPC codes which are 12 digits in length.
Do you know the symbology of the barcode you are scanning? (i.e. UPC, EAN, I2of5, C3of9 etc).

There are a few questions:
What kind of cable do you use?
USB, SERIAL, PS2
What kind of computer?
Normal computer or Laptop?
When you recieve the scanner like new you always have to program it.
First you do
Reset to factory defaults.... Never do this with working scanners
you have to program it.
First the Connection type
and then if needed a computer type.
After that you usually have to scan a suffix.
This means when you scan a barcode it needs to do something after.
normally it doesn't give Enter after you scan.
That is what the suffix is for.
and then you scan additional symbologies to scan
Like Code 39, UPC A etc. etc.
It needs to be programmed with the manual you recieved.
if you don't have it you can download here.
go down in the list to quickscan 6000
and programming manual.
please don't print all the pages. only what you need.
If you need more help i will hear it.

I think the problem you all are having is that this model of scanner requires a "decoder" to work correctly. It is another box which goes in-line between the scanner and the RS-232 port or ps/2 port of the pc. I'm not 100% positive about this, but I am pretty sure this is the problem. You need to look on e-bay for a psc barcode decoder.

Your PSC QuickScan 6000 should not require any drivers. If this unit plugs into your keyboard port, you should be able to scan a barcode and view the data results in a text editor, such as Notepad. This technology is called "Keyboard Wedge" and consists of a cable with three ends. The first is plugged into your hand-held scanner. The second and third are rather close together and are at the end of the cable. This cable is called a "Y" cable because it resembles the uppercase letter "Y". The bottom part of the "Y" plugs into your scanner, while the first upper part plugs into your computer. The second upper part of the "Y" should be a female plug, allowing you to plug your keyboard into it.
Now if you are using a Keyboard Wedge scanner with a USB keyboard, the female end of the "Y" cable would not have anything plugged into. Unfortunately, the scanner will most likely not operate properly if no keyboard is attached to the keyboard port.
I suspect you may have an RS232 or "serial" scanner. Does your scanner have a power supply that plugs into a standard wall outlet? If so, you may have a serial interface scanner. You could use a program called Com to Keyboard, which would convert RS232 or "serial" data into keyboard data. This is a free program, however, it is a resource hog and may slow your system down.
Feel free to call if you have any additional questions.
Good Luck & I Hope this helps!
