LS 1004 Symbol Barcode Scanner

I am hoping someone can help me figure out how to use my LS 1004 Symbol Scanner. The scanner is quite old and probably hasn’t been used for a while. From what I know it was supposed to be used with an old IBM ThinkPad. I did not purchase the scanner and just found it recently. I would like to be able to use it to enter samples into an excel spreadsheet on a Dell computer. Is that possible? I read through the entire manual and am quite confused with what are the Host Type and the Synapse. The scanner I have is attached to an adapter, which can hook it up to the mouse/keyboard plug of the computer. I would greatly appreciate your help!

The host type are the Interafces which are supported by the scanner directly (no adapter needed). And the Synapse adapter can even an old scanner connect to new interfaces like USB.
As you state you have the adapter for keyboard wedge. You would just need to download the Reference Guide for the "Synapse Smart Cable" at support.symbol.com a configure it acccording to your connection parameters.

Cannot read bar code


If it will not read any bar codes, then it must be repaired. If it only reads selective bar codes, then perhaps the one you are trying to scan may not be of the type it recognizes.

This scanner will read the following codes: LS 1004/LS 1006: UPC/EAN, Code 39 full ASC11, Code 128, Code 93,
Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Discrete 2 of 5; LS 1000: undecoded

Scan a barcode and the help menu of the program. LS4000i


Disconnect the scanner from the mouse port or disconnect the mouse from the scanner. The scanner must be connected to the keyboard port and have a keyboard attached to the scanner.

Set up for Symbol LS5000


Hello Fenandez,
there is no driver needed. Just select the programming barcode for the interface (RS232, Synapse,Wand) you want to use on your host device. You would need just the Reference Guide with the barcodes.

Symbol Spark LS 1004 Problem


What barcode scanner do you have? USB, SERIAL or ps2.

by the way. the old computer is it like NCR, SIEMENS or IBM because then you need to re-program your scanner.

i found a manual where you can set your pc type with barcode scanner. be careful not to scan reset defaults. because you will loose your settings.

look at chapter 4-9 and 4-10

http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=3380601bpdf&sliceId=&dialogID=33708056&stateId=0%200%205522749

If you don't know ask me. we don't want to lose al the settings.

good luck
