My ls2208 scanner is intermittent

If the scanner decodes a barcode one time, but not another the first thing to check is the cable. If the scanner issues the power up beeps when the cable is wiggled, replace the cable. If you know the cable is not the issue send the scanner in to Motorola Solutions (call 800-653-5350) for repair. The LS2208 has a five year warranty. You can roughly estimate your warranty by looking at the date of manufacture on the label of the scanner which is just above the trigger.

How can I program LS2208 for automatic trigger

The scanner can not be programmed for automatic trigger. There is a switch in the handle of the scanner that is activated by a magnet. There is a stand you can place the scanner in that will make it scan automatically. There are two different part numbers for the stand 20-61019-01R for the white and 20-61019-02R for the black.

Scanner beeps as if it was powering up but no beam! Just a weak red glow if you look directly into it?

Call Motorola. The device will most likely be replaced for you depending on the serial number. The phone number is 800-653-5350. Choose technical support, not hardware repair.

Scanner doesn't turn on

Hello Loverboy,
the scanner turns on automatically as he he receives power from the host interface.
Please check the cables and connection. For RS232 interface would you need an external power supply. USB can power the scanner without external power supply. By Keyboard Wedge installation please connnect also the Keyboard.

LS2208 barcode problem on Citrix

You you using USB versions of the device?

What device is hosting Citrix? (Maybe I should rephrase ... what computer is the LS2208 connected to and does it hold a citrix client)

Be advised that Citrix hosted on specialty devices like table pcs are finicky about the keyboard data timing (a synchronous operation)

Possibility #2 is power sag. When that scanner comes on it requires a lot of current, and often USB power (.5 amp max) isn't enough.

If you have a 15 foot USB cable on the scanner try a 6' striaght cable instead of one of the external power supply cables which provides a power pack and more power.
