Question about Symbol LS-4071 / LS4071-I111 Barcode Scanner with RL475-I1US Base Station - NO CABLES
I have a heavily used LS4071 that won't scan. It is charging properly. I have changed out the base. I get a good red line, but it won't read the barcodes. I would reset the options, but I can't get it to scan any of the barcodes from the manual. Any idea?

When I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector) I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!
If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

Normally I2of5 comes disabled as default in wavelink software.
You will need to enable it and if you are scanning barcodes of different legths, set both the maximum and minimum to 0 value. This will allow any length.
If you still have problems, get back in touch with me and send me a sample barcode as I have a verifier which will allow me to determine whether there may be a problem or not.

It can read all standard symbologies apart from PDF symbologies unless it is equipped with an imager scan engine.

Print Adobe pages 128 and 129 of 302 of the M2000 Series Product Reference Guide and scan the "Scan Options" "Data Suffix" and "Enter" barcodes. The scanner will give two beeps after the first barcode, two beeps after the second and a warble after the third programming (Enter) barcode.
The manual can be downloaded from this link: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=3969605apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=114420706&stateId=1%200%20114410949
