Question about Symbol LS9208 Hands Free

1 Answer

Using Y Cable, LS9208 Prefix appears along with I 2of 5 data (does not happen with USB cable)

25-62417-20 Y cable with LS 9208 hooked up to keyboard into PS2 on PC, and programmed for scanning I 2 of 5 bar codes... prefix is present, and have been unable to find scan sheets to remove the prefix. Any ideas? Interesting that with a USB cable plugged into the same scanner, and into the PC, this prefix does not show up. We have setups in the field with both Y cables and USB cables, and before spending money on removing the Y cable setups, I wanted to know if there is a scanning solution to fix the Y cable / Prefix problem.

Note, identified prefix as follows: hooked up Y cable and scanner to a VT terminal to see prefix, and we actually saw the special characters. On a PC, while the characters did not actually show, the scanner reacted by advancing on a menu driven screen by at least 2 returns - which I believe was related to the prefix echoing to the screen along with the actual I 2of 5 data from our scanned barcode label. Again, the Y cable setup was the only scanning issue with the LS9208 (PC and VT). The USB cable setup worked w/o a hitch on a PC.

It scans 'k' at start with upc code


It sounds like the scanner has the Symbol Code ID character enabled and you are scanning a GS1-128 (formerly known as UCC/EAN 128) code. You can disable this by scanning the Symbol Code ID None barcode from Adobe page 211 of 460 (Chapter 12 page 3) of the LS9208 Product Reference Guide. https://atgsupportcentral.motorolasolutions.com/content/emb/docs/manuals/6083309a.pdf

Check the USB connection
The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely.
After you make sure the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:

  • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
  • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (3 feet, 3 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
  • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the cause of the problem.
  • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
  • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.

It could be a problem with the cable.
Are you using the same cable you have all along?
One of my players works perfectly well on one cable, bit not on another, although that cable works perfectly on another player.
Also, the cable may be faulty, and not making a data connection, though still charging.
Try a new cable.

Symbol Model LS 9208, Bar code Scanner loaded factory setting, its scans(beeps) but does not display /show in the notepad.


If the scanner is connected through USB connection, the barcode should appear in the Notepad. If you use the Serial connection RS232, the Barcode data are showed than in Hyperterminal or other application, which is interpreting data from Serial Port.
Please scan the barcode from Product Guide according to your connection. And check the scanned data in an application - Notepad for Keyboard Wedge or USB, Hyperterminal for RS232.

I have Symbol LS9208 barcode scanner, but I don't have any cables. I need schematics of USB or RS232 cable for this scanner.


You'll never be able to make the appropriate cables - and Motorola (they bought Symbol) no longer publishes schematics for cables. Contact the Motorola helpdesk at 1-800-653-5350

Hello! I have a problem with scanning bar codes by ls2208 scanner. This device uses rs232 serial port, and when I try to read some bar code, the scanner is reading, but there is no number in notepad. How...


Hi,

The scanner is sending the data to the serial port. You need an application to pull that data in off of the COM port. You can test using HyperTerminal. The scanner defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no hardware or software handshaking. Point HyperTerminal to the correct COM port (most likely COM1) and set it to the settings I just listed. When you scan you should see the data show up in the window.

If you want the data to go into Notepad or any other program expecting keyboard strokes I would recommend the Motorola (formerly Symbol) USB cable CBA-U01-S07ZAR or the CBA-K01-S07PAR keyboard wedge cable.

2. Introduction
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter (P/N 5188) allows a USB compatible workstation to be connected to the
Server Control Switch (P/N 5185 or 5195). The adapter converts keyboard scan codes from the type 5C keyboard to
equivalent USB keyboard scan codes. The adapter also converts the mouse data to USB compatible mouse data.
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter can also be used in a standalone setup, where it is connected between a
Type 5C Keyboard/mouse and a USB based workstation.
3. Installation
3.1 Between Type 5C keyboard and workstation (standalone operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to either minidin8 connector on the Type 5C keyboard using a
straight through minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent). If using a mouse, connect it to the other minidin8
connector on the keyboard.
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
3.2 Between Server Control Switch and workstation (system operation)
For all installations it is recommended that the equipment be powered off for system interconnection and/or changes
to a setup.
• Connect the port labeled To Type 5C Keyboard to any Server Control switch CPU port using a straight through
minidin8 cable (P/N 8002 or equivalent).
• Connect the port labeled To Computer USB Port to any workstation USB port using a USB Type A to Type B
cable (P/N 4021 or equivalent). This type of cable is used for connecting a HUB or other device upstream to
another HUB or a host controller.
• Connect the video output of the workstation to the Server Control Switch video input connector using an
appropriate cable/converter for connector and sync conversion
• Connect and power on the rest of the Server Control Switch system per the appropriate installation instructions.
4. Technical notes
Keyboard
The Type 5C Keyboard to USB Adapter emulates a Sun Type 6 USB keyboard (P/N 3201273-01) and a Sun
Crossbow USB mouse (P/N 3703632-01). The Type 5C and Type 6 keyboards match in available keys, however
several keys are relocated on the Type 6 keyboard. The adapter appropriately maps the key codes generated to the
key legends on the keyboard (i.e. all keys work the way they are labeled).
TYPE 5C KEYBOARD TO USB ADAPTER Page 3

Ultra Spec Cables, Inc.
Important Note Regarding Standby Operation:
USB supports a SUSPEND/RESUME capability that has various and incompatible implementations across differing
hardware platforms. This can affect the operation of the adapter if the workstation supports a low power or standby
mode with an incompatible implementation. Low power or standby mode is normally activated through a menu
selection (using the mouse) or by pressing the POWER key on the keyboard (upper rightmost key on both the Type
5C and Type 6 USB keyboards). For this reason, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard IS DISABLED when
using the adapter. In addition, it is important not to activate low power or standby mode through other means.
WHEN IN LOW POWER OR STANDBY MODE THE SYSTEM MAY NOT WAKE UP THROUGH
KEYBOARD OR MOUSE ACTIVITY, REQUIRING A HARD POWER-DOWN TO RECOVER.
In addition, the POWER key on the Type 5C keyboard does not have the capability to power-on a system as it
would when connected to a Type 5C compatible workstation (nor does a Type 6 USB keyboard have this capability
when connected to a USB workstation).

Barcode scanner scans and beeps, but will not put the numbers in the computer


There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

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.
