The scanner will probably give you error beeps because you are not using a PS/2 keyboard. All you should have to do is scan the IBM AT Notebook barcode from the LS4278 Product Reference Guide. The link below will take you to the manual and the barcode is on Adobe page 104 of 418. I would suggest saving a copy then printing just the page you need.

If the scanner does not start working immediately you should reboot your computer.

LS4278 looses it's scanned settings daily, rescan or reboot of PC required.


If you rely on power from the USB, once you power down the PC the scanners do not charge. A simple fix for this is to purchase a power supply. We have these in stock ready to ship. Please call us at 888-317-3440. The part number is PWRS-14000-253R

How do I connect the mouse?


212
i am assuming you have a usb mouse and a PS2 connection on the computer. If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
So that the mouse cable plugs into the USB female connection and the male ps/2 plug end goes int othe female ps2 port on the computer.
If this is the case you have the wrong converter the chester will convert a ps/2 on the mouse or keyboard to a usb on the back of the computer.. Can you tell us what sort of mouse you are trying to connect does the end of the cable have a usb plug on it a bit like the blue usb plug in your picture.
If this is the case then you need a female usb to ps2 mouse adapter
Google it and see the difference.

LS4278 no laser


There are three possibilities I can think of assuming this is not a brand new scanner:

1. The LS4278 is faulty - which given Symbols quality I would say it is normally not the case unless th scanner has been dropped or otherwise damaged.

2. The cradle is not charging the scanner. You may wish to try another cradle - one that you know is charging aother scanner. After a few minutes you should be able to see the laser.

3. The battery in the scanner either needs a recondition (see product reference guide), or needs replacement.

LS4278 scanner can't read digits


Hi, try scanning French Windows barcode from the USB section of the LS4278 Product Reference Guide. The barcode is on Adobe page 147 of 414. You may also have to scan the Enable Keypad Emulation barcode from Adobe page 150 of 414, but I would do this only after testing with the French Windows setting first. I suggest saving a copy of the document before printing the barcodes just to make it easier to print. Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

Symbol HotShot LS2106 sounds like it's scanning, but no display


If you are using a USB to PS/2 converter on the end of the USB cable then it won't work. You will need to get a PS/2 cable made for this scanner. I can supply you with one if you need it.

I need to be able to use traditional mouse and keyboard ports on one computer and usb port on second computer can i convert the KVM-2 Corega swich to do this? This switch links my present two computers but...


When you say "traditional mouse and keyboard ports" i assume that you mean the green and purple PS/2 ports. If I am correct in my assumption then this is what you can do. You can buy PS/2 to USB converter for your mouse and keyboard. A simple google search should yield you plenty of shopping results. Just make sure that you buy PS/2 to USB converters, not USB to PS/2 converters or you'll probably get the wrong thing. Everything else should just be plug-n-play from there on out. Hope this helps.
