PSC Quickscan 6000 Plus - handsfree mode?

PSC Quickscan 6000 Plus - want to set it to handsfree - can't get it to work. I have the manual and have tried to set it to AutoSense Stand Mode "Enable" but nothing seems to happen. I notice I can scan the "set" code then scan the "enable" code and I get three beeps but then when I scan the "end" code I get one beep followed by four slow beeps. ???

    Not using USB. I have the y-cable that connects into the keyboard din connector on the PC on one side and then hooks into the keyboard din connector on the other side. Also, I have no software or drivers whatsoever for the scan gun. It works fine scanning product bar codes into our packing application where we use it now - but we have to manually click the trigger for every scan. We have several "Hand Held" brand scan guns that work just fine after scanning a bar code in their user manual to put them into autosense mode. I'm trying to do the same thing with the PSC QuickScan.

Enabling AUTO SENSE Stand Mode AUTO SENSE Stand Mode must be enabled when the scanner is used with the accessory. Additionally, Very LOW POWER Mode must be disabled since it is not a compatible feature. Reference the Quick Scan 6000 Plus Programming Guide for additional programming and feature information. 1. To enable AUTO SENSE Stand Mode, scan the bar code labels below in order: SET, ENABLE AUTO SENSE STAND MODE, DISABLE VERY LOW POWER MODE, END. ------------------ Using the AUTO SENSE Stand Simply place the scanner into the cradle as shown, ensuring that its trigger is depressed when seated . The scanner will now allow hands-free operation. AUTO SENSE Stand can be cleaned as needed using a soft cloth dampened with a mild, water-based cleaner. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or pads. if you don't place the scanner in cradle properly as required then sense will not work but manual will work. click this link directly to know how to place the scanner AUTO SENSE https://easeofaccess.scanning.datalogic.com/public/marketlit/Send.aspx?file=R44-2802A -------------------- thanks.this will help.please do rate the solution. thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

Auto sense should enable Hands free operation. If it does not work, try reinstalling the software. Start software installation with USB cable not connected. If still no luck, test auto sense mode using a different USB cable. A long or defective USB cable can cause troubles when using functions as auto sense.

QuickScan 6000 Plus cant get it to work with windows 7. If i use ps2 port, the red scanninglight dissapears after one scan. If I use an converter ps2 --> usb and plug it in usb port, it seems to work...


try the other usb ports. sometimes that works. also make sure that your other usb devices are off if possible. If you are using a usb keyboard try using a ps/2 keyboard. If you have an open usb port in the front try using that instead. I have seen this many times. Good luck.

Having trouble programming the scanner..I have the product guide but I am not sure of to set the scanner too..........


I recommend that you first come up with a question to ask. Then go to the website of the manufacturer of the scanner. Search support for answers to your question. If you don't find them use the phone number or email address on the website to contact them.

I buy the one but there is no cd driver can it go without driver


hi :
Your PSC QuickScan 6000 should not require any drivers. If this unit plugs into your keyboard port, you should be able to scan a barcode and view the data results in a text editor, such as Notepad. This technology is called "Keyboard Wedge" and consists of a cable with three ends. The first is plugged into your hand-held scanner. The second and third are rather close together and are at the end of the cable. This cable is called a "Y" cable because it resembles the uppercase letter "Y". The bottom part of the "Y" plugs into your scanner, while the first upper part plugs into your computer. The second upper part of the "Y" should be a female plug, allowing you to plug your keyboard into it.

Now if you are using a Keyboard Wedge scanner with a USB keyboard, the female end of the "Y" cable would not have anything plugged into. Unfortunately, the scanner will most likely not operate properly if no keyboard is attached to the keyboard port.

I suspect you may have an RS232 or "serial" scanner. Does your scanner have a power supply that plugs into a standard wall outlet? If so, you may have a serial interface scanner. You could use a program called Com to Keyboard, which would convert RS232 or "serial" data into keyboard data. This is a free program, however, it is a resource hog and may slow your system down

PSC 6000 Plus not scanning


There are a few questions:

What kind of cable do you use?
USB, SERIAL, PS2

What kind of computer?
Normal computer or Laptop?

Then...

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

then

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.

http://www.scanning.datalogic.com/sitefiles/manuals.aspx

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.

If your cables are connected between your keyboard and PC, be sure to set up the correct Keyboard Wedge Parameters, beginning on Page 34, to allow connectivity.
I'd start by scannig barcodes "CE" and "ZA" to reset to default wedge values. If that doesn't work, I'd procede to sc an "CF" for PC=AT,PS/2.
Pages 36 & 37 address the Caps Lock issue, where the scanned value is in the wrong upper or lower case.

Have a nice day,
