If you were to have it open using any barcode, you could build a circuit that uses the beep of the scanner when it reads a barcode.

If you wanted it to only work with specific barcodes it would get far more complicated, you could right a program that displays a white or black box in a corner of your computer screen and just build a simple light detection circuit and tape the CDS Cell of the circuit on your screen where that box gets displayed.

What software can I purchase so I may make barcodes with a Voyager Honeywell scanner.


Microsoft Excel can print bar-code labels. I did this for my office for our stock room and they work with every bar-code reader I've used so far.

On our Canon 6080, we get an error C01. We have opened and closed the main compartment several times, but the error does not resolve. My IT guy is out with the flu. Any help would be appreciated.


When top cover is open, you get a display C01. Press the top cover and check if the display goes off. The top cover is held in position by a spring loaded mechanism (The grey colored plastic part No MA2-6863-000) The spring is held in position by a small plastic tab and this was broken in two of my scanners. I used a self tapping screw in place of the plastic tab to keep the spring in position.

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.

Scanner beeps but doesn't enter data into system


Have you scanned the configuration barcodes on the manual? For example if you are using keyboard wedge cable, you will need to scan the keyboard wedge barcode from the manual. Page 20.
