Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld

HPLS2208 needs enter after scan

Our office has ordered two different sets of the HPLS2208 at different times (same model number). In our application one of the scanners needs an enter after the scan and the scanners purchased with the second batch do not need an enter after the scan. Do you know why the same model number would react differently in the same application? We did not do any specific configuration with either batch...just plug and play.

Check to see if there is a scan book that came with it. It will allow you to program the scanner to automatically read the code and enter after every scan.

How do I read Barcodes in Microsoft Excel?


<p>Bar code symbols are composed of a number of adjacent bars and spaces of different widths of pre-defined codes. A barcode scanner is used to read or scan the bar code symbol to represent the information to decode. Once the symbol is scanned by a handheld reading device or another, can then be used by computer software to track inventory and perform other functions. Microsoft Excel is a computer application that use bar code information can make the business perform. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Insert bar code scanner to your computer using the "interface cable keyboard wedge". The keyboard wedge interface cable looks like the printer port of your computer, and differs only in that a connection between the scanner bar code and serial number of your computer or USB port. The cable is provided as a peripheral pattern with hand-held bar code scanners. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Open Microsoft Excel on your computer after the bar code scanner connected to your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Links on the Excel cell to the bar code to enter and bar code scanning to load it into Microsoft Excel. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. View the data in Excel file is translated into a vision of the bar code information. <br />

After scanning a bar code I need it to enter and go to next row in excel


Hi,

This can be possible, therefore it is not an Excel setting. You would need
to use the software that comes with your bar-code reader to configure this.

Try looking in your bar-code reader documentation for "Append Enter" or
"Append Carriage Return"

I'm using Symbol LS1004 with SirsiDynix Symphony 3.3.1 Workflows. How can I tab over after each scan, without having to hit &lt;Enter&gt;? Thanks, -john


Here is what I did to fix the problem of the bar-code scanner not going to next line after a successful scan. (Symbol ls4000i,This fix should work for other models as well)

1. Get the manual for your scanner or here is a link to the Symbol LS400i
https://docs.symbol.com/manuals/3789802a.pdf
You will want to print off few pages that have the proper bar-codes for programming.

2. I usually start with setting scanner to the Default Parameter, this should be in section 5-7,page 50 of the manual.PRINT IT
Warning! If you set scanner to default, you need to be aware of which bar-code types you use. (We use UPC-A) Also if you have it programed for other things already you may not want to set all settings to default. You can skip to step 4. If you do not wish to reset all values to default.

Now scan the Default bar-code.


3. Now program scanner to Enable your bar-code type. (For us Enable UPC-A bar-code is in section 5-22,page 66. PRINT IT

Now Scan the Enable (your bar-code type UPC-A, UPC-E,etc etc)

4.Next You need to set a Suffix Value. The scan Suffix bar-code is found in section 5-80, page 124. PRINT IT

Now Scan the Scan Suffix bar-code

This prepares the scanner for the code of the whatever Suffix you want to add.

5. The Suffix you want to add to fix this particular problem is ENTER. So that it goes to the next line. There is a prefix/suffix value chart on page 162 table A-4. The code for ENTER Is 7013. In order to enter this code you will need to print off the Numeric Bar Codes found in section 5-109,5-110,pages 153,154. PRINT IT

Now scan in 7013 one number at a time to program ENTER as the suffix.

6.Now you have to program the Scan Data Transmission Format found in section 5-81,5-82, pages 125,126 . PRINT IT
(This lets the scanner know to transmit the Suffix after the data.)

First scan the Scan Options Bar-code.
Second scan the <DATA><SUFFIX> bar-code.

Last scan the ENTER Bar-Code.

YOUR DONE !

Your scanner should be working now. Also look through the manual there are some nice functions that can be turned on and off with a simple bar code scan. Such as volume and tone of beep etc etc.

Hope this helps

Ls9208 need to press enter after read


If you need to have a carriage return/enter after each bar code scanned, scan the following bar codes (from the Product Reference Guide) in order:
1. <SCAN OPTIONS> (on page 12-9) 2. <DATA> <SUFFIX> (on page 12-10) 3. Enter (on page 12-11)

Need to have a barcode that when scanned will simulate an enter


There is not a barcode to simulate the enter key. You have to program the scanner to add the C/R (carriage return) to the end of the data that it sends. This is just a simple programming step. The users guide that came with the scanner will have a section in it with barcodes to scan to program the unit to perform differently. Each model scanner is a little different but the process is about the same. Enter programming mode, scan the C/R barcode, exit programming mode. Now when you scan the barcode the scanner will automatically add the "enter" for you.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Scanning is extremly slow


What interface? If it is a USB interface the scanner sends the numbers the same as if you had entered them on the keyboard. If you do just enter the barcode (need to know format actually sent to application) numbers does it also respond slow?
Plug the scanner into another PC/laptop, open notepad and scan a barcode, does it scan fast?
The POS application, if it is windows, open notepad and scan the barcode, does it scan faster.
It is likely the POS application that is responding slow.

For the POS applicaton:
- Is scan database local or on the network.
- Have you maintained the scan database? Re-index, compacting, etc

Hi, i am trying to configure my barcode scanner LS2208 to put a {TAB} in when scanning


There should have been a sheet or book of bar codes that came with your scanner. These codes will allow you to program your scanner to do most anything, including adding a tab. You simply look at the bar codes and read what they do. you simply scan the one that adds a tab and it will forever add the tab unless you re program it.

If you have lost your book/bar code page, you should be able to go to the manufacturer website and download/print a document with the programmable bar codes.
