No signal on motorola mc75 scanner when in metal building

MY wireless Motorola MC75 handheld scanner has no phone signal inside warehouse. Switching the scanner to the wireless feature sometimes works. How do I get better signal strength?

    The scanner will not scan the barcodes. I have set it to wireless on, bluetooth off, phone off. Then try wireless off, bluetooth off, phone on. Even tried wireless on and phone on but bluetoothe is always set to off. The radio signal I am informed isn't working due to the building is metal. I am at my wits end. When it does scan, I have to step outside or drive down the road and sometimes my scan will load...

    yes, I'm aware that the metal building is the problem with signal. Sorry if I confused anyone. What I would like to know is if there is a booster or antanna that actually works to pull in a stronger signal. My DSL service is with att&t.

Information regarding metal building may well be correct as metal buildings can act as a farraday cage blocking radio signals.

How to factory default Mc75 device

Resetting the MC75

There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the MC75 by closing all running

programs. A cold boot also restarts the MC75, and also resets the clock. Data saved in flash memory or a memory

card is not lost.

If the MC75 is not functioning properly, perform a warm boot first. If the MC75 still does not respond, perform a cold


Performing a Warm Boot

Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the MC75 starts to boot release the

Power button.

Performing a Cold Boot
To perform a cold boot simultaneously press the Power button and the 1 and 9 keys.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Scan bar code using motorola MC75

there are several ways to use the scanner: you can have an application directly with scanner drivers implemented. Or you can install the application DataWedge provided by the manufacturer.
The DataWedge application will activate the scanner and the decoded barcode is sent as usual keypad input to the system. The application is running in background, so you can have your favourite simple application in foreground and scan data directly.
To download the DataWedge application please go to website and search for DataWedge, or use this direct link

How to disable gps on mc75 motorola

Hello dmastajam. To be honest, I have never needed to disable the GPS for an MC75. Unfortunately, I don't have one handy at the moment, but I would assume that it will be in the settings and configurations. I usually tell my clients to approach their issues with these as though they were trying to fix the problem on their cellular phone. They find it much easier that way. I hope I could at least point you in the right direction. Good luck!
