Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld

1 Answer

SCANNING PROBLEMS My company has several LS2208 Barcode scanners, both ps/2 and usb connected. However, the new pc that have been purchased support only usb connection and hence we bought only Barcode scanners with a usb interface. the problem is that while is scanning one set of barcodes(the bottom), it does not scan the other(the top). the pictures on the diagram express the later.

    I have some experience with Symbol barcode PDA's, and ran into this a few times.

    My guess is that they are two different barcode types.

    Does it physically scan it, but the PC doesn't decode it? or does it not scan it at all?

Hello I have trouble with laser ls2208 it is PS2 connection but i have only USB on PC so i buy converter ps2 to usb but after connected scanner read product but not send text to pc .


You can try scanning the Keyboard Wedge host type barcode IBM AT Notebook then rebooting your PC. If this does not work you should order a CBA-U01-S07ZAR. This is the USB cable for use with the LS2208. Zebra Technologies support solution ADC-00217 addresses this type of issue. The article was written for connecting to a laptop, but your connection is similar if you do not have a keyboard attached to the cable. This link will take you to the solution which includes the IBM AT Notebook barcode. portal motorolasolutions com Print the article and scan the barcode then reboot your PC.

Hi my name is christian canola and i purchased a symbol ls2208 barcode scanner from geminicomputers and i downloaded the program 123 scan2 for my barcode scanner and i click on my scanner is connected via...


Hi Christian, if your scanner was manufactured before February 2010 it may not be able to communicate directly with 123Scan2 so you wont be able to upgrade firmware with the program, but you will still be able to use it to create configuration sheets. These are the only two uses for 123Scan2.

To create a configuration sheet without "finding" the scanner click Create New Configuration then choose My scanner is NOT connected. Select the LS2208 and click on the blue firmware button to get into the configuration. When you have completed your configuration click the Print bar codes selection at the top of the window and when the file comes up be sure to click on the Bar code formatting menu and change the Bar code type to 1D One setting per barcode if it is not already there. Older scanners will not work with concatenated 1D barcodes where 123Scan2 puts more than one setting into a barcode.

Dear sire I have symbol LS2208 handheld scanner (serial cable) but when connected in com port in a regular PC it do not power on .


you're going to either connect it to a com port that provides power, or get a different cable that allows you to connect an external power supply to it.

CBA-R01-S07PAR RS232 Cable assy, 50-14000-009R 220V PS,


or get a usb cable - program the scanner to USB, This will provide the power.

CBA-U01-S07ZAR-B

but only if you have an operating system that recognizes USB

Is there a driver for barcode scanner i am holding Model No - LS1902T-1000 company - symbol tech inc. hotsville n.y.


The barcode scanners are usually using ans Standard PS/2 or USB interface in the same way as keyboard, therefore you dont need an driver.
You would probably need to setup the barcode scanner according to the used connection/interface.
Here is the manual for yur scanner http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=189660311&stateId=1%200%20189654341

LS2208 Can get it to work no driver


If your scanner shipped with a keyboard wedge cable and you are using a PS/2 to USB adapter all you should have to do is scan the IBM AT Notebook barcode on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. I suggest saving a copy of the document to your host then printing just that page. Scan the barcode then try scanning your barcode. If the computer still does not see your barcode try rebooting. If this still does not resolve your issue you may want to purchase a USB cable. The part number is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

If you have the CBA-U01-S07ZAR and the scanner is not sending data then you should scan the HID Keyboard Emulation barcode from the QRG that came with the device or Adobe page 109 of 342 of the guide referenced above. I hope this helps.

I have a Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner with an RS232 connection. My new computer only has USB. Can I simply buy a new cable for the scanner, or do I have to get a serial-usb adapter to make it work?


You can purchase a USB cable for the scanner. The cable comes out of the handle of the scanner. The part number of the USB cable is CBA-U01-S07ZAR.

Symbol HotShot LS2106 sounds like it's scanning, however, no data/information is displayed once scanned. Connecting to Windows XP with a USB converted to PS2 cable. Are there reset bar codes available that...


The LS2106 did not support laptop mode so the PS/2 wedge needs to have a PS/2 keyboard attached to the cable. If that does not work I would suggest trying to find a 25-31617-01 Synapse adapter cable and STI85-0200 USB Synapse cable. This would allow you to connect the scanner right to the USB port and it should work without any extra programming. I believe the cost of the two cables (if you have to purchase them new) is almost as much as a new LS1203 scanner with USB cable. At least with the new scanner you would get a three year warranty.

4 beep error when scanning barcode


The four beep error is a communications error. Usually it indicates the scanne is not configured properly. If the scanner is connecting with the CBA-K01-S07PAR cable and you are using a PS/2 keyboard you should have scanned the IBM PC/AT barcode from Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide.

If you do not have a PS/2 keyboard attached and are using a USB to PS/2 adapter you should scan the IBM AT Notebook from that same page. If the scanner does not start working immediately you may have to reboot your system. If the scanner still does not work the CBA-U01-S07ZAR USB cable might be a better choice.

If you are not connecting with either of these cables and are still getting the four beep error a call to the Motorola support center may be in order. Their phone number is 800-653-5350.

LS2208 barcode problem on Citrix


You you using USB versions of the device?

What device is hosting Citrix? (Maybe I should rephrase ... what computer is the LS2208 connected to and does it hold a citrix client)

Be advised that Citrix hosted on specialty devices like table pcs are finicky about the keyboard data timing (a synchronous operation)

Possibility #2 is power sag. When that scanner comes on it requires a lot of current, and often USB power (.5 amp max) isn't enough.

If you have a 15 foot USB cable on the scanner try a 6' striaght cable instead of one of the external power supply cables which provides a power pack and more power.
