Depending on the scanner your currently using it might need to be programmed to read the specific symbology. Call me 847-847-7835 x202

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Voyager scans into hyer terminal but not Notepad

Did you read the installation and configuration manuals? I download them from this website:
http://tinyurl.com/359pwh

Your scanner might note be configured correctly.

here are the guides I downloaded:
http://tinyurl.com/2sakgf

http://tinyurl.com/33gh4g

And the MFG website where you can download the material:
http://www.metrologic.com/corporate/products/pos/ms9520/

The scanner and host system must use the same communication protocol. I have a feeling the scanner is not configured correctly. The USB and serial connectors are 2 different types of configuration, but there are more.

You can also download the drivers and POS software from there website.

SOURCE: 4 beep error when scanning barcode

The four beep error is a communications error. Usually it indicates the scanne is not configured properly. If the scanner is connecting with the CBA-K01-S07PAR cable and you are using a PS/2 keyboard you should have scanned the IBM PC/AT barcode from Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide.

If you do not have a PS/2 keyboard attached and are using a USB to PS/2 adapter you should scan the IBM AT Notebook from that same page. If the scanner does not start working immediately you may have to reboot your system. If the scanner still does not work the CBA-U01-S07ZAR USB cable might be a better choice.

If you are not connecting with either of these cables and are still getting the four beep error a call to the Motorola support center may be in order. Their phone number is 800-653-5350.

The barcode reader eclipse ms5145 powers on,the laser light blinks and beeps at scan by not scan the barcode


It could be either one of two things, first of all will this unit scan any barcodes, or is it just one particular one it will not scan. If nothing scans and if no special programming was added to the scanner I would consider defaulting the unit back to factory settings. This procedure can be found in the manual that came with the scanner or here is a link http://www.honeywellaidc.com/CatalogDocuments/00-02544%20Rev%20K%202-11.pdf *** If you are going to do this please confirm that no special programming was done to this *** but normally they are ready to scan right out the box. So scan the barcode to "enter/exit configuration" the unit will beep tree times, then scan the "recall defaults" and the unit will beep once. Then scan the "enter/exit configuration" once more. Then try to scan a retail barcode. Hope this helps.

I have a barcode scanner Symbol S/N M1J82M51E. When scanning the item barcode it makes very low volume. How to increase the bipping scanning volume for the Symbol Scanner?


1. Press and hold the trigger for an extended period of time (approximately 5 seconds). The scanner cycles through three settings (Low, Medium, High) emitting a 2-beep tone at each setting.
2. To select a particular setting, release the trigger after you hear the desired 2-beep tone.

I just got an LS4006i scanner with a ps2 connection. When I plug it in, it beeps 3 times. When I scan a bar code, it beeps once and the lite turns green, a slight pause the 3 beeps. nothing comes up on the...


The cable has to have a PS/2 keyboard connected to it and you must be connected to the keyboard port. Unfortunately this scanner did not support "Notebook" mode where you could make it think it was connected to a laptop and leave the keyboard connection open. The other thing to check is that the "IBM PC/AT" barcode is scanned from Adobe page 55 of 182 of the LS400Xi Product Reference Guide.

3 Beeps after trying to scan


If you are receiving three quick beeps (all the same tone) before a scan the battery is low. If the scanner is more than two years old the battery may need to be reconditioned. It is recommended the battery be reconditioned once a year. The latest revision of the LS4278 manual is here:
http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=6983404apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=134112767&stateId=0%200%2014115220

Print page 28 of 414 and scan the Battery Recondition barcode. The scanner will discharge the battery then charge it up again. It goes through this two times so you need to leave it on the charger a while for this process to complete. Hopefully this will resolve your issue. If not, you may need a new battery.

If the beeps are low, medium, high the procedure above still may work, but you might want to call Motorola for assistance. Sometimes hearing the beeps helps to diagnose the problem.

Are you able to please give me the reset instructions for a symbol scanner? model: LS4278


Hi, I would be happy to assist you in resetting your LS4278, but it would be helpful to know how you are connected. The Set Defaults barcode will reset all of the scanner settings, but it will also cause you to lose the "pair" (communications) between the scanner and cradle. If you try scanning a barcode at this point you will receive a single beep followed by four error beeps. This just means the scanner is not talking to the cradle. Scan the barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner should give a high low high low series of beeps followed by a short low short high. The short low short high indicates the scanner is talking to the cradle again and you are ready to scan.

If you are connected through the USB port and scan a barcode and get one beep, but do not see data on your host try unplugging the black power supply cable from the cradle. Try scanning your barcode again and it should show up on the host.

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 support.symbol.com website, you would need to scan the barcode for IBM PC/AT & IBM Compatibles from Keyboard Wedge Chapter.

StratosE ms2122, it scans it beeps but nothing appears.


most barcode systems will scan and beep when presented with a valid barcode (if the barcode conforms with a valid format). This just means it is powered up (it does not require any input from the computer to do this) I believe you have a driver issue, which controls how the scanner communicates with your computer. please check that you have up to date drivers and software from the manufacturer's website and that you can find the device listed (by name) in your Device listing Gareth
