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

I cannot get my opticon barcode reader to work with my wirless keyboard. I have a Dell computer, and a Microsoft wireless keyboard I have the hand-held CCD Wedge Interface (25-wedge-06 Opticon Bar code...


Hi!

Keyboard Wedge Barcode Scanners are sometimes tricky because they will not operate if the keyboard is physically attached to the Scanners' "Y" cable. A possible solution would be to attach an additional keyboard to the "Y" cable and simply set it aside un-used. (This would allow you to continue to use the Wireless Keyboard; which I assume is USB). I may also be able to program the scanner to operate in a Laptop Mode which would allow you to operate successfully as-is. I would need your exact model number to investigate if this is possible.

Hope this helps!

Scanner beeps but doesn't enter data into system


Have you scanned the configuration barcodes on the manual? For example if you are using keyboard wedge cable, you will need to scan the keyboard wedge barcode from the manual. Page 20.

The scanner is scanning but no data is transmitted to the PC


I also purchased a Symbol LS4071 and when I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector - the connector is split like a "Y") I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!

If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

LS2208 works - Keyboard does not


Check that the wedge is good. It is basically a hybrid spltter that powers both the scanner and the keyboard.
USB keyboard?
If so, you may want to go direct to either a serial port or a USB direct connection

You could use a ps2 splitter cable to connect both the barcode scanner and the keyboard to the pc. You would also have to use the correct scanner codes to ensure that the scanner is configured properly. Alternatively, you could try connecting the scanner with only the ps2 to usb and miss out the extension cable to determine if that is the problem. If the scanner is a ps2 wedge scanner, it will need reprogrammed with the correct scanner codes for usb.
