First:
a) Do you have the scanner connected to an Y cable ?
If yes, you need to connect to the PS/2 port on the computer and you have to connect another 101 keys keyboard
/ PS/2 computer port
scanner ----
\ 101 keys keyboard.

restart the computer and will work.
the system will include the driver in the keyboards.
Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard

b) if you do not have the Y cable:
just install the driver : Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard

Good Luck

There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

Symbol 4000i scanner will not scan barcodes that are single digit


Hello Jane Diaz,
the scanner has several barcode types enabled by default. Other type or lengths must be activated with an programming barcode from the Programm Reference Guide for LS4000.
Please check which kind of barcode are you using. Download the Program Reference Guide from support.symbol.com Scan the barcodes from the chapter Symbologies

Scan a barcode and the help menu of the program. LS4000i


Disconnect the scanner from the mouse port or disconnect the mouse from the scanner. The scanner must be connected to the keyboard port and have a keyboard attached to the scanner.

Symbol LS 4000i scanner issues


Hello, it looks like the scanner lost the settings. As power is there, so connection is ok. The several (four) beeps after reading the barcode means communication error.
Please try to find the original sheet with configuration barcodes or download it from support.symbol.com website, you would need to scan the barcode for IBM PC/AT & IBM Compatibles from Keyboard Wedge Chapter.

Symbol Spark LS 1004 Problem


What barcode scanner do you have? USB, SERIAL or ps2.

by the way. the old computer is it like NCR, SIEMENS or IBM because then you need to re-program your scanner.

i found a manual where you can set your pc type with barcode scanner. be careful not to scan reset defaults. because you will loose your settings.

look at chapter 4-9 and 4-10

If you don't know ask me. we don't want to lose al the settings.

good luck
