If you are trying to scan with something standalone that does not support Scanning, you will have to load scanwedge. (symbol has it)

Otherwise if your software supports scanning, you must do a hard reset, Rmove battery cover and hold down the reset button while removing the battery.

I know i am lat on this one but it will help someone

How do i get the internet explorer message that appears from time to time off the screen of motorola mc3190 without having to shut it down


The key combination you looking for to close any window or message in a Windows environment is ALT+F4, depending on the type of keypad the Motorola MC3190G are using.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

48-Key Keypad

The ALT functions are indicated in blue on the keypad, so in order to use these, you have to activate the ALT Functions first by pressing the BLUE BUTTON (FUNC) (Right side below ENTER button) and then press the CTRL BUTTON (left side below BKSP button).

After the key combination is pressed, the ALT icon appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the ALT icon appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices.

Now you can press the "D" button to use F4, this will close any window or message that is currently in view.

38-key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC BUTTON (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and then press CTRL button (Middle below UP ARROW button), now you can press the F4 button.

28-Key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and then press the CTRL button (Top right side below RIGHT ARROW button), now you can press number 4 to use F4.

Hope this helps, good luck.

'tab' button doesn't work on Motorola MC3190


You get 3 different keypad models of the Motorola MC3190:
- 28 Key Numeric
- 38 Key Shifted Alpha
- 48 Key Alpha Numeric

So depending on the type of keyboard your model has, using TAB are different across these 3 keypads.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

When the FUNC button is pressed the icon "F" appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the icon "Blue Circle" appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.1 devices.

In order to use the TAB function, do the following:

28 Key Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

38 Key Shifted Alpha - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

48 Key Alpha Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below ENTER button) and press the number 9 button.

Cannot connect with the current connection settings. To change your connection settings tap settings.


I sometimes will wipe the device clean and install a new version of OS.. but you can call motorola directly and ask for a download link for the build number you want. 1.847.576.5000

https://portal.motorolasolutions.com/Support/US-EN/Mobile+Networks+RFID+and+BarCode+Scanners/Mobile+Computers/Handheld+Computers/MC9190_G_US-EN

this link should get you in the right spot.. but you want the Cleaner Device Software if you can find it..

load it to a micro/SD card, put it into the device. plug into power, hold 1 & 9 press power.. release all.. press power again and hold yellow laser trigger until it asks you to update loader.. this will reset your device.

we had to disable power save on ours cause the scanner sleeps and shuts off wifi, and took 1-2 minutes to reconnect to our wifi radios.. and the app would time out.. so I suggest doing the same.

My telxon 710 will not turn on


Try to "three key" the device. Hold the bottom left and right key (No & Enter button on my device) and whilst holding press the power button. This will boot into DOS/Tcal prompt. Also check the battery contacts and ensure the battery is well charged.

Motorola MC9090 G oes not cold boot.


Hi,
 
I'vefound this method works best especially on Window Mobile versions, windows CEdoes not seem to have the problem.
  1. Have the battery inserted, 
  2. Remove the battery so its at the first stage of removal,
  3. Hold down the On/Off button and trigger,
  4. Insert the battery, still with On/Off button and trigger held,
  5. As soon as the amber light flashes release the On/Off button and trigger.
  6. Unit will attempt to cold boot and then warm boot,
  7. If it works then it will boot through to the Windows Splash screen or desktop.
  8. If it fails and continuously warm boots, remove the battery fully as soon as it cycles a warm boot.
  9. The terminal will not switch off at this stage and will completely drain the backup battery and RAM, giving you a complete clean cold boot
  10. Leave the battery out fro 20 minutes.
  11. Power on and see how far you get. 
If it stillfails after this I would suggest a complete re-flash of the system. Please posta follow up question on how to do this.
Hopethis helps.

Unit will not boot. Screen reads


"Check serial Input" is just part of the cycle on boot up. It checks for a key press on boot up so that it can access a hidden menu. A cradle, serial null modem cable and hyper-terminal is required to bring up this menu

You can try and re-install the operating system.

Download the latest image from Intermec (you will need to register) and then load the image onto an SD card.

Remove the front cover just above the scan engine; 2 slot head screws and insert the SD card. Cold boot the device. Take off battery and hit the reset button a few times. Re-install battery.

Image will begin to reload.

Detailed instructions are available with the download.

NOTE: The latest image downloads from Intermec not longer have the Telnet application pre-installed. If you require the telnet client then select a previous version, but then also not that there are usually 2 versions EX25 and non-EX25 scan engine type.

PPT2846 Dies Whenever Scan Trigger is Pushed


sounds like you have a faulty laser moule, which overtaxes / shorts accross the battery, I am unsure whether this is user servicable, and may require a prefessional repair to replace the laser pack.
