Question about Symbol MC9060-G

MC 9060 not retaining programming

We have 3 MC 9060 that do not retain there programming and settings if the battery runs out.  Two of these units are only used two or three times a month so I suspect the internal battery is not fully charged.
Is there a way to load and save programs to these units so that all settings are retained even if the units battery runs out.

We have the same problem, and according to our supplier we had to use the Regsave for saving the settings, due to internal proceudres, we haven't use the devices for a year, but now we have to use them again....
We have found this solution in the net, perhaps will help you...., now we are trying to find out the RegSave utility, if you find it, PLEASE e-mail me at THKS
Some brief notes about the use of RegSave on Symbol 90X0 terminals, specifically the 9060 with the 802.11b RF option.

You will need

Unzip this and locate the file RegSaveCED.exe in the 9050 folder.

Connect your terminal as a guest in ActiveSync and explore it using Win Explorer. Locate the c:\applications folder and copy the RegSaveCED.exe file to this folder on the HHT.

Now you can uncouple the HHT and click start menu and Windows Explorer to look at HHT's local files. locate applications folder and locate the RegSaveCED.exe file... double tap

Now screen RegSave EMEA TS appears.

In Registry section press "Create Template File"
Accept \Application\RegSave.tpl option offered
Click Create template and wait forever !

............. time passes ..................

The app rattles through all the registry entries and builds a file with them all in. Just when you assume it'll last forever it stops...

Now back to the main screen ...

Click OK (top right) to exit the app

--- oOo ---

Now set your IP parameters and RF bits... in fact anything you need.

........... time passes ...........

--- oOo ---

Now re-load the RegSave app.

Press the button in the Registry section entitled "Save Current Configuration"

I got some missing file error here which I rode over roughshod... basically it's looking for a registry exception file. You can create this but and it can be a list of ignored keys but for our purposes it doesn't matter so I just said "Yes"

It'll do some stuff regarding comparing and checking for differences, then it saves the changed bits.

Now you can exit RegSave and try rebooting... it should have saved the changes to the Registry and everything should be the same as before

How do i change the cmos battery?

First the safety rules

The inside of a computer is a bad place full of electricity and sharp edges.
On the electricity side always when working on you computer make sure that it's still plugged in to the power socket and the power is turned off, this is to ensure that any static
From you is discharged through the earth. The inside of most computer cases are unfinished metal and has very sharp edges so be careful.

The first signs of a battery failing are:-

1) your clock starts running slowly
2) when you boot (start) your computer it has a problem finding your hardware (no hard drive, no cd rom)

To change the battery you need the following tools

1) a X-point screwdriver
2) an anti-static strap(optional)
3) a new battery (seems logical)

Then unplug all the cables from the back of the computer as you remove them make a note where they came from. (So when you finished you can put them back)

Move the computer somewhere where you can work on it with ease

Remove the cover by locating the screws around the outer edge (back) of the computer
Some computer cases only require you to remove 2 screws on one side then a panel can be removed allowing you access to the computers insides, others you must remove 6 screws and remove the whole case by sliding it to the rear and lifting it off.

Now make sure that you read the safety instructions about static.
Look inside you will see a round silver thing that looks about the size of a 10p piece (quarter). This is the battery itself, carefully lift the retaining clip and slide the battery out. That's it removed now go to your local computer retailer, electrical retailer (Tandy/Radio shack) taking the old battery with you and get a new battery.

Back to your computer insert the new battery by lifting the clip and sliding the battery in.

Reinstall your case and plug all the cables back (you did remember to label them didn't you)

Now for the fun part.

You will now need to go into you bios....

Right the bios is the god of your computer.

To access it, when your computer first starts you will see a black screen with white text.

If you look carefully you will see a line that says something like "press del for setup" or some other key (F2 or ESC or tab) this will take you to god's house where you can make lots of changes to the way your machine works.

It is also the place where you can make your nice computer in to a rather expensive door stop so be careful and don't go playing with anything.

You will now be presented with a blue screen with a lot of options on it,
The one we want is load optimized/default settings.

Press the F10 key and type y the computer should now reboot.

If every thing went well then your computer will now be up and running.

Shizers way: Keep computer running. Lay it on it's side and remove side cover to expose MoBo. Take any thin object, "small screwdriver, knife point, wood shiskabob skewer. Pull back the battery retaining clip. Toss the old battery in the junk receptacle, unless you belong to Greenpeace and want to save the earth. Install the new battery. No need to reset bios because the computer supplies voltage to the cmos while it is running. Reset or re sync clock with internet. Done!

In order to reset the device you will need to perform a cold boot. This will erase all temp data and reset all settings to the factory default it will not however erase any applications which have been downloaded into flash memory cards(assuming they're installed).

Perform a Cold Boot:
Press the primary battery release on the mobile computer to partially eject the battery from the mobile
2. On an MC9090-G, while the battery is partially released, simultaneously press and release the trigger and the
Power button.
3. Push the battery to fully re-insert it in the mobile computer. One audible click can be heard as the battery is fully
4. The mobile computer initializes.

Once it has re-initialized all user data will be removed and all factory default settings will be restored, they should be ready to sell at this point.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Symbol MC9060-G using version 4.20 Build 14053

google remcapture and download it, cold boot your scanner and hook to computer, have remcapture capture the baseline, disconnect scanner and make all settings and changes you need, reconnect scanner and capture the diference then hit save then deploy the save file. if you did it right all of the changes will be persistant. The nice thing about this is when it has problems you cane deploy the save file again and you only have to go through this with one scanner all scanners you use that are the same model number can use the same config file.
