Re: Decodeing UPC-A Supplemental 2 or 5 code

You should have a code book that came with the scanner, the code book allows you to program the scanner's options, the code book takes you step by step through the programming proccess. each option requires you to scan varios barcodes to "set" the various options one of the options will be to set the barcodes you wish to use, this is set to avoid a misread (confusion between barcode standards)

Cannot read bar code

If it will not read any bar codes, then it must be repaired. If it only reads selective bar codes, then perhaps the one you are trying to scan may not be of the type it recognizes.

This scanner will read the following codes: LS 1004/LS 1006: UPC/EAN, Code 39 full ASC11, Code 128, Code 93,
Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Discrete 2 of 5; LS 1000: undecoded

Scanner won't scan library barcodes.

The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library. NET UPC Barcode Reader

My scanner reads only12 numbers not 13 numbers from barcode what h do?

Perhaps you should ask for replacements and ask for a bar code scanner who reads 13 numbers because even how many times you try it over and over again if the function of the scanner is limited in reading 12 number the results will be the same..Hope it can Help you.

I have an IT3800 scanner and use it in a gift shop. My products have "regular" barcodes, those with 5 digits added and ISBN barcodes. My scanner stopped scanning the extra 5 digits. I went to the IT3800...

What you need is to turn on Digit Addenda for the types of barcode you are trying to scan. Here is the user's guide:
Please check page 7-30, where you will find the codes to turn on the supplements for EAN 13 barcodes (those with 13-digit). Also, if you don't want the scanner to insert a space between the main code and the additional digits, you have to turn off addenda separator (page 7-31)
There are similar configuration codes for other symbologies (like UPC A) throughout the manual.

Hope it helps!
best regards!

Hi, i am trying to configure my barcode scanner LS2208 to put a {TAB} in when scanning

There should have been a sheet or book of bar codes that came with your scanner. These codes will allow you to program your scanner to do most anything, including adding a tab. You simply look at the bar codes and read what they do. you simply scan the one that adds a tab and it will forever add the tab unless you re program it.

If you have lost your book/bar code page, you should be able to go to the manufacturer website and download/print a document with the programmable bar codes.

I would like 2 know the model number/name of a barcode reader , also want 2 convert the 12 digit to 13 digit reading

If you want a cheap but reliable scanner try the LS1203 by Motorola (formerly Symbol) with any Symbol scanner to convert a 12 digit UPC into a 13 digit number you scan the UPC-A Enable System Character Country Code from the appropriate Product Reference Guide. The guides can be found at:

Ean 13 problem

you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
