Question about Symbol LS3478 Barcode Scanner

1 Answer

My Symbol scanner sits in a cradle, and the laser goes off and on, rather than remaining on full time. This is a problem, because when I pass a barcode under the unit, I have to wait until it flashes, and then move the barcode again trying to "hit" the right spot to scan it (which usually takes several tries, and thus a good 30 seconds). How can I make the scanner stay ON all the time? I don't see a "preferences" place where I can set such a thing...is there such a thing as "preferences" for a scanner like this? Symbol Barcode Scanner LS2208.

My canner ls4278 is making a sound and turnin red when i scan


It could be the scanner is not paired to the cradle. The scanner will be once for the barcode and then four times for the communication error. Make sure the cradle has power; it will pull power from a USB port. Scan the pairing barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner will give a high low high low beep and then shortly after give a short low short high beep indicating the radios have paired. If the scanner still beeps four times after doing this, the host type may not be set. If connecting USB scan HID Keyboard from the LS4278 Product Reference Guide.

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.

My symbol barcode scanner beeps 4 time while I try to scan. The Manual states that the battery is bad. I replaced the battery & it does the same thing.


This 4 beeps also stays for communication error. Please check the connection to the cradle and also the connection between the cradle and PC.
You can start by pairing the scanner with cradle with the Pairing barcode, then defaulting the scanner to the standard settings - use the barcode "Set All Defaults" from the manual. Then select the right host type USB, RS232 or another.
After this procedure should the scanner work.

WILL NOT READ 2D BARCODES


That is correct this LASER scanner does not read 2D barcodes. It contains a long range 1D laser engine.

Light source: 650 nm visible laser diode

Datasheet can be found:-

http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Business/Products/Bar%20Code%20Scanning/Bar%20Code%20Scanners/Rugged%20Scanners/LS3578-ER/_Documents/Static%20Files/LS3578ER_SS_1208.pdf

If you want to read 2D barcodes you would require an imager. For long range try the Intermec SR61 it contains an EX25 imager.

3 Beeps after trying to scan


If you are receiving three quick beeps (all the same tone) before a scan the battery is low. If the scanner is more than two years old the battery may need to be reconditioned. It is recommended the battery be reconditioned once a year. The latest revision of the LS4278 manual is here:
http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=6983404apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=134112767&stateId=0%200%2014115220

Print page 28 of 414 and scan the Battery Recondition barcode. The scanner will discharge the battery then charge it up again. It goes through this two times so you need to leave it on the charger a while for this process to complete. Hopefully this will resolve your issue. If not, you may need a new battery.

If the beeps are low, medium, high the procedure above still may work, but you might want to call Motorola for assistance. Sometimes hearing the beeps helps to diagnose the problem.

MC9060-G stuck in IPL (initial program loader mode.


Windows Active Sync will not recognise a scanner in IPL mode. You need to install the Symbol Device Configuration Package that is applicable to your scanner/cradle. Once installed and configured you can use SDCP to restore the Hex files needed for basic operation. All the files and loader software can be found at http://support.symbol.com/support/product/softwaredownloads.do
