Symbol ls 2106 handheld scanners

While programming the handheld scanners, the scanners accept every barcode except for the scandata transmission format, which the scanner receives the lo\hi tone which means input error. I have repeatedly reprogrammed the scanners, directly from the manual even, but still not accepting the scandata transmission format. This is important as it allows hands free computing as the user does not have to press the enter key each time he/she scans in information.

Symbol LS 4000i scanner issues

Hello, it looks like the scanner lost the settings. As power is there, so connection is ok. The several (four) beeps after reading the barcode means communication error.
Please try to find the original sheet with configuration barcodes or download it from website, you would need to scan the barcode for IBM PC/AT & IBM Compatibles from Keyboard Wedge Chapter.

Barcode scanner scans and beeps, but will not put the numbers in the computer

There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

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)
