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

Re: setup issue

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 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

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.

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.

Can't install Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner on a PC (Wedge cable)

You will need to scan the barcode that configures the LS scanner to use keyboard wedge or even the set all defaults barcode. You will be able to find both of this on the product reference guide that you can download from in the support page.

The scanner must be set to the IBM PC/AT host type. Unfortunately, these scanners are not plug and play. They do not detect the keyboard host on power up so the host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. It should remember that host type until you set defaults. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. Print and scan this barcode. The scanner should start working immediately.

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 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.

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,

Locked Metrologic MS9520-37 (keyboard wedge) after unintentional programming

You programmed it for usb interface, but the scanner is keyboard wedge. Try pointing the scanner at the "recall defaults" barcode in the manual as you plug the scanner back in.

Datalogic Heron D130 (Barcode Reader) Header setup

Whether or not you can set this feature depends on which interface type you are using if you are using wedge interface then the procedure is described below: The extended Header/Terminator keys for Wedge Interface users can be customized by defining them through a simple keyboard setting procedure. For example, the Numeric Keypad keys can be set for use as Headers or Terminators by substituting the default extended keys using this procedure. The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting command. Press and release a key to set it. Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use (refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys. Example: If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4". Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the reader, otherwise repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this corresponds to the normal use of your keyboard. Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the reader emits 2 beeps. Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by "CAPS LOCK". Check page 31-33 of the "heron reference manual", downloadable near the bottom of this link page; Hope this helps :)
