Replacement USB port for my scanner, how can I find the one I need?

I moved my scanner and the USB port that reads from the scanner to my computer is gone. How do I find out which one I need to replace it?

If you mean the USB Cable (not USB port as in your question) then you need a standard 'computer to peripheral' cable. It has the regular USB rectangular plug on one end (this part goes into the computer) and an almost-square plug on the other end (this part goes into the scanner.) I say "almost" square because it has two rounded corners to help with orientation.

As additional reference, these types of cables are commonly used to connect USB hubs to computers. For example, the USB hub built into my Dell monitor also uses this standard cable.

  • Hi, I can help.

  • This happens a lot to people just setting up a scanner like this. Try these suggestions, I think you'll be up and running in no time.

  • You have to make sure the BAUD rate is set and make sure your PC control is turned on in your scanner. A BAUD is the rate per second data is sent.. A BAUD rate of 38400 (or what ever BAUD the software is at). I think parts 3,4 and 5 in the your scanner menu cover this. If you have the FIFO buffer set then remove it from your settings > control panel > comm ports. You will get the best results if you have that software read the bank before writing to it. Relabel your comm port settings if you need to as well ie. port 1, port 2 etc.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa,

I cannot install the above mentioned scanner since the driver is unspecified


IF IT IS USB BARCODE SCANNER, DO THESE:

1.

Locate the USB connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other computer peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the data cable, most likely opposite the scanner itself, should be a small rectangle-shaped plastic and metal connector. This connector is the USB terminal that will plug in to the computer's USB port.
2.
Locate the USB port on the computer. The USB port, whether on the computer or a peripheral device, will be rectangular in shape and feature either the letters "U S B" or a small network diagram showing two circles, a square, and an arrow.
3.
Connect the USB cable to the computer or peripheral device. Once the USB connector and port have been identified, push the USB connector firmly but gently into the available USB port. USB connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the USB connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must decipher the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.



TO INSTALL A SERIAL BAR CODE SCANNER, DO THESE:




1.

Locate the serial connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the serial cable should be a rectangular, typically male connector. The cable may be pinned with nine, sixteen, or more pins depending on the design of the scanner.
2.
Locate the serial port on the computer. Most computers have at least one serial port, usually found on the back of the machine. The port will be female, maybe blue in color, rectangular in shape, and should be approximately the same size (or slightly smaller) as the serial connector.
3.
Connect the serial cable to the computer or connected peripheral. When both the connector and port have been identified, push the serial connector firmly but gently into the port. Like USB connectors, serial connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in. Do not use excessive force while pushing on the serial connector, as it is possible to bend the connecting pins and damage the connector.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must interpret the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your specific scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO PUT THE USB CONNECTOR


If you only have one USB connector then you can purchase an USB hub which may have 4 or more ports (I suggest you get a powered USB hub). Then plug the hub into the computer's USB port and you now have several USB ports.

The computer recognizes the hardware, however scanner is not scanning. Have windows XP. How can I tell if the scanner is broken, there are no lights on it?


your scanner is ok.
But there is communication problem from computer to scanner .
For that
Check your usb cxable and usb port of computer working fine.
Try in another usb port.
If you have other port like parallel port then check it.
Check drivers of scanner are instaled proeprly.
Ig already installed then uninstall it and install again.
Also uninstall all usb drivers then restart the computer then it automatic install usb drivers .
you can uninstall usb drivers from computer with device manager.
Press windows key + Pause break key to see system proeprty then go to hardware then you see device manager then uninstall all usb drivers.

Scanner


Most lexmark all in one printers require that the drivers be installed first before plugging it into the USB port. If you were moving it, their could have been a chance it didn't get placed back into the same port it was before the move. To solve this issue, either plug the printer into a different USB port or reinstall the printer. I would try option A first, you will know when its correct when A it prints and B you dont recieve a notice on the screen for a driver request.

Scanning drops in middle of scanning


Check to see if the computer has adequate RAM's installed to work with the scanner. Don't forget that in the background it is running scanner software, and the operating system at the very least.

It is also possible that there is a buffer over-run timeout error occurring with the USB port processing. There may be an IRQ address conflict. The over-run timeout error from the USB port may not be reported.

Try connecting a USB powered hub between the computer and the scanner. The powered hub will offer some isolation, and being a hub it has some internal memory with data repeating circuits. I have seen this approach fix a lot of problems with digital cameras and scanners.

If it still has the same fault with the hub, then try using the hub with the scanner on different USB ports. There may be an issue with IRQ's and addresses. Moving to a different port will sometimes allow for a different address for reading the scanner.

Past these options that I mentioned, the fault is very involved. If you do not have the in depth knowledge base about how to trouble-shoot this fault, you will have to get some assistance.
