Programming a USB PSC QS6000 Plus

We have PSC QS6000 plus scanners using USB cables (new installation). We are having difficulty programming the settings for the Interleaved 2 of 5 leabel. We need to configure it to not transmit the check digit.

The setup documents that come with the scanner do not include settings for the I 2 of 5 label.

When we try to use the programming sheets for the PS2 QS6000, the scanner decodes the barcode instead of going into programming mode.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    my psc qS6000 plus was working just fine then I plugged it into a different computer and it kept trying to install, it finally installed, but now it doesn't work properly. The scanner scans the barcode and beeps, but the number doesn't show up on the computer. I've tried different computers, but it does the same thing on the other ones.

Everything you need is came from your system mechanism. The only way to control your requirements is came from your programm coding.

at the start of the string sending must be filtered and rearrange from your program mechanism.

From what system you need to used barcode scanner? Are you using POS?

Ive got a second hand psc qs6000 plus barcode scanner. where do download its driver.

If you are looking to program your scanner:

USB Interface
Keyboard Interface

If you are using the USB interface, make sure you are plugging the scanner either directly into the computer, or if you are using a USB hub, it is a powered hub.

I hope this helps.

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.

My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

PSC 6000 Plus not scanning

There are a few questions:

What kind of cable do you use?

What kind of computer?
Normal computer or Laptop?


When you recieve the scanner like new you always have to program it.

First you do

Reset to factory defaults.... Never do this with working scanners


you have to program it.

First the Connection type
and then if needed a computer type.

After that you usually have to scan a suffix.

This means when you scan a barcode it needs to do something after.

normally it doesn't give Enter after you scan.
That is what the suffix is for.

and then you scan additional symbologies to scan

Like Code 39, UPC A etc. etc.

It needs to be programmed with the manual you recieved.
if you don't have it you can download here.

go down in the list to quickscan 6000
and programming manual.

please don't print all the pages. only what you need.

If you need more help i will hear it.

good luck.

Psc qs6000 plus

If, during the programming session, you find that you are unsure of the scanner's settings or wish to reset the scanner's configuration, use the Return to Factory Settings label available in the Programming Overview section of the above programming guides. (Note: Use this label with caution, as it will disable ALL features that may have been programmed since the scanner's installation.)

QS6000 Plus barcode scanner

you can not change a qs6000 from ps2 to usb by just changing the cable. the interface inside the unit needs to support usb, to check this look at label with the serial number and if it says "I/F=KBW/RS" your our of luck, and can only use ps2 or rs232. if it says "I/F=UW" then you can just scan 3 barcode from the manual to set the interface to usb
