Question about Symbol LS1902T Handheld

1 Answer

Setup issue I have the keyboard wedge. I selected set defaults then shut down pc. I then select IBM PS/2. I try to scan and it beeps four times indicating it is not setup properly. I don't know what needs done. All I need to do is scan barcodes into notepad to make sure the barcodes we purchase are readable. Typically Code 39, Code 128, and EAN 128. Thanks - melged

    The link you sent for the manual was more recent than what I had.  I am using cable 25-54164-20. I'm not sure if that is considered a smart cable.



    It seems like it should work with just the defaults.  I found this link http://support.symbol.com/support/search... and tried it but it still beeps 4 times like it's not programmed right. 



    I don't have any documentation for the cable I have.  The scanner and cable were in a desk draw for a long time and now I have a need for it.


  • melged Oct 12, 2007

    I discovered what my problem was after I tried it on another computer and it worked fine.  I use a wireless keyboard on my computer and it didn't like that there wasn't a ps2 keyboard plugged into the Y cable.  Once I plugged a regular keyboard into the cable on my computer and re-booted, then it was fine. 



    Thanks bluegreenash for your help!

You need to use a code book to program the gun how to behave (and by what kind of interface it is using) I found this note please look http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=ADC-00084&sliceId=SAL_Public&dialogID=26700221&stateId=1%200%2026686911 you should have a book of barcodes to customise the configuration of gun to behave how you want it to. here is the electronic version http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5093002apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=26700221&stateId=1%200%2026686932

    To add that the first note detailed a problem which means that the gun does not automatically detect a SMART CABLE (a firmware issue)

  • Gareth Cockram
    Gareth Cockram Oct 12, 2007

    yes but if you see the other note it tells you that there is a problem with the default setting on that particular code version and you have to tell the scanner to use the cable manually.



     



    (PS Any cable is a "smart cable" for this scanner as the scanner is supposed to be able to detect which cable it is, hence the "smart" funny labeling I know, but there you are.)

    if you add the option for Keyboard Emulaton to your scanner it should work with the wireless keyb.

Won't read keyboard


usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

Enable PS2 & USB in BIOS You can enable PS2 and USB settings in BIOS by entering the BIOS setup screen when the computer boots. You will need to changes to the appropriate settings in this screen. The exact procedures vary by system, but there are a few common methods that may work if the motherboard manual is not available for guidance. The general procedure is the same for any modern computer system, but the menu arrangement and keystrokes to enter the setup program can vary greatly from one machine to the next. Power on or restart the computer and watch the initial boot screen to find the keystroke required to enter BIOS setup. This is often shown at the bottom of the screen. Typical keystrokes include pressing the "F1," "F2," "F9," "F10" or "Del" key. Press this key when the prompt appears on the screen. You can find the proper key in the computer's motherboard manual or on the website of the motherboard or computer manufacturer. Enter the BIOS setup screen and look for the "Advanced" or "Onboard Device Configuration" menu. Use the arrows to select your choice and press "Enter." Change the settings for the PS2 port by moving the menu choice to the "PS2" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with the options to enable or disable the PS2 ports. Select "Enabled." You can also use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the PS2 port. Change the settings for the USB port by moving the menu choice to the "USB" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with options to enable or disable the USB ports. Select "Enabled." Alternatively, use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the USB port. Save the settings and exit by pressing "F10" or using the "Esc" key to back out of the current menu. Choose to save and exit from the main menu if needed. Follow any additional instructions on the screen to save or navigate the menus. Hope this helps.

I have a Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 motherboard. I want to change the boot menu to boot from the CD. The problem is the up/down arrows won't move the highlight bar from the floppy.


I love using Gigabyte boards in my own Home Theater PCs, so I run across this problem sometimes when I'm setting them up for the first time with a USB keyboard. Pretty sure the problem you're having is the same--the BIOS isn't set to 'recognize' USB keyboards by default, so try the following:
  • Turn it off, and connect an older PS/2 style connecting KB to it;
  • Turn it back on, enter the BIOS, and find the settings page with 'USB Keyboard' in it;
  • Change that setting to BIOS rather than SYSTEM, so next time you boot, it will 'see' your USB KB. Plug in your USB KB before rebooting, then save the settings and reboot the PC again.
  • You can leave the old PS/2 KB plugged in to make sure you can change things, but try your USB keyboard out as well. You should be able to control BIOS settings upon reboot.

Hopefully this was all you needed. If it persists, be aware that some Gigabyte mobos have had BIOS issues galore (eBay is full of Gigabyte BIOS chips).

Reset the BIOS on a Compaq server 740 jumpers settings


Don,t do that insatead:
Entering the BIOS Setup menu Entering the BIOS Setup menu requires pressing a specific key at a specific time. If you fail to enter the Setup menu on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful:
  1. Close all applications that are currently running and restart the computer by clicking Start , Shut Down , Restart the Computer , and then OK .
  2. When the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo screen appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard to enter the Setup menu.

NOTE: An alternate to the above steps, especially if the logo screen disappears too quickly to enter BIOS, is to shut down (turn off) the computer. Wait 30 seconds, turn the power on and press F10 or F1 at the logo screen. Reloading the default settings Complete the following steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup settings:
  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.
  2. Select Load Setup Defaults .
  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).
  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

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.

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.

I need an owners manual


You can download a manual (06656 User's Guide/Programming Guide) at the DataLogic site. They bought PSC in 2005.
http://www.scanning.datalogic.com/sitefiles/result.aspx?m=Product%20Manual&p=53XX&l=english&d=1&t=search&s=NonCurrent

If your cables are connected between your keyboard and PC, be sure to set up the correct Keyboard Wedge Parameters, beginning on Page 34, to allow connectivity.
I'd start by scannig barcodes "CE" and "ZA" to reset to default wedge values. If that doesn't work, I'd procede to sc an "CF" for PC=AT,PS/2.
Pages 36 & 37 address the Caps Lock issue, where the scanned value is in the wrong upper or lower case.

Have a nice day,
