Re: QS6000 Plus barcode scanner

You can not change a qs6000 from ps2 to usb by just changing the cable. the interface inside the unit needs to support usb, to check this look at label with the serial number and if it says "I/F=KBW/RS" your our of luck, and can only use ps2 or rs232. if it says "I/F=UW" then you can just scan 3 barcode from the manual to set the interface to usb

Hello I have trouble with laser ls2208 it is PS2 connection but i have only USB on PC so i buy converter ps2 to usb but after connected scanner read product but not send text to pc .

You can try scanning the Keyboard Wedge host type barcode IBM AT Notebook then rebooting your PC. If this does not work you should order a CBA-U01-S07ZAR. This is the USB cable for use with the LS2208. Zebra Technologies support solution ADC-00217 addresses this type of issue. The article was written for connecting to a laptop, but your connection is similar if you do not have a keyboard attached to the cable. This link will take you to the solution which includes the IBM AT Notebook barcode. portal motorolasolutions com Print the article and scan the barcode then reboot your PC.

Drivers for ms5145

A standard PS2 to USB cable will not work with these scanners. You'll need to purchase cable # M009-3MA7C. They are expensive, so shop around for price.

Ive got a second hand psc qs6000 plus barcode scanner. where do download its driver.

If you are looking to program your scanner:

USB Interface
Keyboard Interface

If you are using the USB interface, make sure you are plugging the scanner either directly into the computer, or if you are using a USB hub, it is a powered hub.

I hope this helps.

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.

My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

PSC 6000 Plus not scanning

There are a few questions:

What kind of cable do you use?

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.

good luck.
