I've just had the same problem at my college. Check that the cable is plugged into the keyboard ps2 rather than the mouse ps2.

The only thing I can assume is the problem is is that the COM ports have become mixed up. I believe the scanner needs to use COM3 and it could be that this may be being used by another device. We had this problem a while back and no matter how many times we re-added the device it would take a COM port higher than 4 or 5 and not any lower. If you can reset all the COM ports and re-add the scanner device then that should work.

Why doesn't it scan?


usually you need to configure the reader to tell it what kind of barcodes you want it to read and how to interpret & output the codes to your computer (whether you need prefix or suffixes to your codes( for automation))

the user manual for the reader has some bar codes to configure the settings for the scanner.

Tip

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 />

Scanner won't scan library barcodes.


The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library. NET UPC Barcode Reader

I cannot install the above mentioned scanner since the driver is unspecified


IF IT IS USB BARCODE SCANNER, DO THESE:

1.

Locate the USB connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other computer peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the data cable, most likely opposite the scanner itself, should be a small rectangle-shaped plastic and metal connector. This connector is the USB terminal that will plug in to the computer's USB port.
2.
Locate the USB port on the computer. The USB port, whether on the computer or a peripheral device, will be rectangular in shape and feature either the letters "U S B" or a small network diagram showing two circles, a square, and an arrow.
3.
Connect the USB cable to the computer or peripheral device. Once the USB connector and port have been identified, push the USB connector firmly but gently into the available USB port. USB connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the USB connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must decipher the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.



TO INSTALL A SERIAL BAR CODE SCANNER, DO THESE:




1.

Locate the serial connector on the bar code scanner. Bar code scanners, like other peripherals, connect to the computer by way of a data cable. At the end of the serial cable should be a rectangular, typically male connector. The cable may be pinned with nine, sixteen, or more pins depending on the design of the scanner.
2.
Locate the serial port on the computer. Most computers have at least one serial port, usually found on the back of the machine. The port will be female, maybe blue in color, rectangular in shape, and should be approximately the same size (or slightly smaller) as the serial connector.
3.
Connect the serial cable to the computer or connected peripheral. When both the connector and port have been identified, push the serial connector firmly but gently into the port. Like USB connectors, serial connectors are keyed so that they can only be inserted the correct way; if you feel solid resistance while inserting the connector, remove the connector from the port, turn it over and plug it in. Do not use excessive force while pushing on the serial connector, as it is possible to bend the connecting pins and damage the connector.
4.
Install bar-code reading software. While the bar code scanner can scan the bar code into the machine, software must interpret the meaning of the code. Bar code scanners, if purchased new, should include a version of proprietary bar code software compatible with your specific scanner. If your scanner did not come with software, or if it is missing the installation disc, bar code software may be purchased on the Internet from sites like WaspBarcode.com.

Have you properly programmed the scanner? Are you sure the codes you are scanning are readable and are programmed as active in the scanner? Is the scanner set up to communicate properly with your PC/other device? I'd review the User's Guide and follow their instructions. Here's a link to the guide. Choose the first User's Guide on the list. Good luck

Hi m cantell. This is one of those issues that could have about 20 different causes. Fortunately, they are all quite easy to fix. I keep a general initial troubleshooting guide on my company's website (www.shiftintoblue.com/troubleshooting) give that a look-over and see if anything there solves your issue. If not, I've hosted Metrologic's configuration manual for you (www.shiftintoblue.com/resources/metrologic_config.pdf). Before you start scanning configuration barcodes, though, you'll need to know your scanner's communication method. If it is Keyboard Wedge or RS232, you'll be fine. If it is IBM46XX, USB (standard/low speed), or USB (full-speed USB/FSUSB), you will have to do a little more configuration and I will go over that at the end. After you know your communication method, go to page 11 and note the barcode 'Recall Defaults'. Print this page, and scan the barcode on the sheet. This will reset the unit to it's factory defaults (or, if your vendor took the time, the defaults they know you need to have) and should solve any problems within the unit.
As I mentioned before about communication methods, if you have IMB46XX, USB (regular), or USB (full speed) then you will need to do one the following.
For IBM46XX: use page 50 and scan the barcode "Load IBM46XX Defaults" and then "Enable IBM46XX Communication". This will enable IBM46XX communication.
For USB: use page 51 and scan the barcode "Enable Low Speed USB" and then "Load Low Speed USB Defaults". This enables regular USB (like you'd find on a PC) communication.
For full speed USB: use page 185 and scan "Enable Full Speed USB" and then "Load Integrated Full Speed USB Defaults". This will load the integrated FSUSB communication settings. If that doesn't work then scan "Full Speed USB Defaults". This will load the hardware's original FSUSB settings (if applicable).
A side note: FSUSB is very, very different from standard USB. If you have standard USB, do not use the FSUSB configurations out of desperation. Many of my clients (and myself once) have done this and can really make a mess of things. If you need more help, please feel free to send me a message or email me. I hope this helps. Good luck!

The scanner has several modes of operation after reading a barcode. But I comment it may be bad configuration. Check that the mode of connection is correct (usb, keyboard wedge, RS232, etc.). All this programming is done with the user manual, through configuration barcodes. If you do not, then you can download from www.ute.com.

Hooked scanner up to new computer. Reads bar code


It sounds like you are connecting to a serial port and you are trying to scan into a program that needs keyboard data. Download the "Softwedge" program from the Metrologic website.
