Question about Symbol Cobra LS1902 Handheld

1 Answer

Using scanner for inventory only

I have an 'LS1902T' scanner by SYMBOL circa2003.

My windows XP recognizes it and it functions. is there a driver I could buy or download to use this scanner simply to read raw data into a file, or spreadsheet, for inventory. This would be for my own personal use as My Boss doesn't want the expense of all the accompaniing equiptment, IT would just make my record keeping a little easier. Thanx.

Cab't get computer/application to recognize the scanner

This is an older model handheld that utilizes either and RS-232 cable or Symbol Synapse cable to link to a PC. If the model you are using is cordless, then there should be a dock that is used to connect to your PC.

Most computer peripherals using RS-232 connections require a driver install to the PC in order to recognize the input from the device. Upon successful connection of the handheld or dock to the PC with driver installed, the unit should work as long as there is no physical malfunction to the unit.

The driver utility support the p470 models can be found here:

This unit is only supported by Windows 2000 or Windows XP environments.

Symbol handheld scanner problems

scanners are just plug and play.. be sure the scanner is programmed to read the type of bar code you are scanning.. Check the symbol to make sure it is not defaced. Try scanning test symbols of the same barcode type. and last tip, move the scanner closer to or further from the bar code.
