Cab't get computer/application to recognize the scanner

This is an older model handheld that utilizes either and RS-232 cable or Symbol Synapse cable to link to a PC. If the model you are using is cordless, then there should be a dock that is used to connect to your PC.

Most computer peripherals using RS-232 connections require a driver install to the PC in order to recognize the input from the device. Upon successful connection of the handheld or dock to the PC with driver installed, the unit should work as long as there is no physical malfunction to the unit.

The driver utility support the p470 models can be found here:

This unit is only supported by Windows 2000 or Windows XP environments.

Scanner beeps as if it was powering up but no beam! Just a weak red glow if you look directly into it?

Call Motorola. The device will most likely be replaced for you depending on the serial number. The phone number is 800-653-5350. Choose technical support, not hardware repair.

How to find the com port for the USB driver

You have to look in the device manager. Usually you can get there by right clicking on My Computer then selecting Properties then the Hardware tab and Device Manager. If the CS1504 pulled a virtual COM port it will be listed under Ports (COM & LPT) as Prolific USB to Serial Comm Port with the port named at the end of the line.

I have got scanner 1000 but cannot scan the barcodes i have got. like TA010304, when i scanned it, other weird stuff would appear like 06^OX... anyone can help me? Thanks.

Hi there, you may check the settings of your scanner software, go to start>programs and check the scan software utility and from there check the settings of the scanning page/are so that it would see those barcodes you need.. or may lighten the scan settings as well.

Windows XP does not recognize the Handheld scanner.

My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.

I hope this helps!!!

I need a driver for my Symbol Cyclone M2004 becouse it has a serial conection

There is no need for drivers for this scanner. You will need to configure it using the barcodes from the product reference guide to use standard serial port. You can test it in Hyper Terminal if you set the com port normally to 9600, 8, n, 1. This should enable the scanner.

Make sure that you actually have the right cable for it.

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

Extra zero

The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)

My XP Media Center PC does not recognise the scanner

Your USB ports on your computer may be bad. Do other devices work if you plus them into the same USB port? You can try plugging the scanner into another PC with USB ports. If it works in the other PC, then that points to the original PC's USB ports. You can try buying an add-on USB port or using other USB ports on the PC. If it still does not work, then there may be a problem with the USB port on the scanner, and the scanner itself may need to be serviced.
