You could use a ps2 splitter cable to connect both the barcode scanner and the keyboard to the pc. You would also have to use the correct scanner codes to ensure that the scanner is configured properly. Alternatively, you could try connecting the scanner with only the ps2 to usb and miss out the extension cable to determine if that is the problem. If the scanner is a ps2 wedge scanner, it will need reprogrammed with the correct scanner codes for usb.

Do you currently have hand-held inventory scanners?

Although you may not be familiar with Legacy's Technology Services, we may already be servicing your barcode scanners, barcode printers and even POS hardware. Many sellers of extended maintenance contracts have used Legacy for years to perform service on devices covered by their contracts.

Maybe you're looking for a specific hard to find part. Chances are I've got it!

We also carry refurbished equipment if you are in the market.

Give me a call for a quote and to discuss your current needs.

I connected it to a laptop using a usb to serial adaptor and bc-wedge serial to keyboard buffer application . i could send data to the reader but not get anything from it. i figured out that i did not bind the reader to the cradle as it says on page 7 of the quick reference book, it works great now any barcode i scan goes where i want it to .... i also connected it to a pc without using the usb adaptor thru the 9 pin serial cable and using the bc-wedge and it works with no problems ... had to make sure com port settings were the same 9600 8 none and 1 in windows and bc-wedge or the output is gibberish..hope this helped...

try the other usb ports. sometimes that works. also make sure that your other usb devices are off if possible. If you are using a usb keyboard try using a ps/2 keyboard. If you have an open usb port in the front try using that instead. I have seen this many times. Good luck.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

There are 4 possible ways in my awareness...
Method 1: Resynchronize your device with the receiver To resynchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, follow these steps. Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put any other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
  1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.

    Note Some newer Microsoft devices are permanently bound to their receiver and cannot be reset. If your device does not have a button, skip to Method 2.
  2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
  3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
  4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
The following example shows the buttons to push to synchronize a wireless hardware device:

USB keyboard and USB mouseIf the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer. PS/2 devices Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device into the PS/2 port while the computer is running.If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations:
  • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
  • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
If you have to change your configuration, shut down the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection. PS/2 keyboard and USB mouseIf you are using a wireless mouse with a USB connector and a PS/2 keyboard, verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Method 3: Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteriesBoth the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. Remove the batteries, and then insert them again. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are having problems with. Method 4: Check for interferenceItems such as wireless routers, radios, cell phones, desktop fans, fluorescent lights, and large metal objects like computer cases and metal furniture may interfere with the signal of the keyboard. Try to keep such items away from the keyboard, and check the behavior of the keyboard.

Do not put the mouse or the receiver near any electrical devices, especially transmitters such as cordless or cellular telephones or other wireless mouse devices or receivers. A distance of at least 8 to 12 inches is recommended. Do not put the mouse or the receiver on metallic surfaces or objects, especially long metallic rails or cables. We recommend that you keep the mouse and the keyboard a minimum of 3 feet from metallic objects.

Need to connect a wired keyboard


Do you have a PS/2 or USB keyboard? If it is a PS/2 keyboard (with a round 6 pin connector), you will need a PS/2 to USB converter. Plug the round end onto the keyboard wire and the USB end into either one of the side USB ports (next to the audio jacks and memory card reader) or one of the back USB ports )next to the DVI port). If you have a USB keyboard, plug into any available USB port. (You could also use a USB hub.) Make sure that you have the ports live (not turned off for security or power-savings).

I hope this helps.

The connection on the rear of the hub should go to a USB connection on the laptop, not a PS/2 connection. A PS/2 to USB adapter is used to connect a PS/2 keyboard or mouse to a USB connection.

PS/2 mouse port not working?


Hello fredbeer,

Besides the obvious checking with your device manager, you can download a port test kit HERE. That will be able to test if it's working. The other thing you can do is switch the keyboard into the mouse port and the mouse into the keyboard port. You should get some errors, if not, one of them will work and the other won't. Hopefully, you'll get the keyboard in the mouse port to work, so you know the port is working. Also, if you have any other PS2 devices that you can test it with.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.

Thanks
