Question about Symbol LS2080 (ls2080-i000a)

1 Answer

I've got a used symbol ls2080-i004a barcode scanner

I've got a used barcode sacnner for my computer... I will scan the german barcodes on books to get my >500 books into my computer ...

I have a symbol LS-2080-I004A barcode scanner connected to my computer (either linux or windows as OS), The scan line is flashing on and after a few seconds of. The LED for "Scan" is on at the same time, but the LED for "Decode" doesn't even flash. There seems to be no input data to my computer.

I think with some barcodes to program the thing it may work again.

Which codes do I need?
Where can I find them?

Cheers
Kai

You would need to enable those barcodes in the scanner settings, please scan the barcode "Enable Bookland EAN" from the Manual located at http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=189660311&stateId=1%200%20189654341

Why Symbol LS2208 keyboard wedge not scanning correctly?


Do you have more than one of this model scanner? If so, I would test a different one on the same computer to make sure it is not a computer issue. Be sure to test it in the same USB port to get an accurate test.

Having a second scanner would also allow you to switch out the cable connecting the scanner to the computer. The end of the cable which plugs into the scanner is an RJ45/Ethernet end. You will need a flat head screw driver to push down on the tab to release it from the scanner. Swap the cables and see if the problem follows the cable or the scanner. If it follows the cable, you can replace the cable for cheap. If it follows the scanner, I would plug the scanner into the working computer and reset the scanner to factory default using the Symbol Book of programming barcodes.

Try a different USB port with the original scanner.

You can also reset to factory default if you don't have a second scanner using Symbols book of programming barcodes.

Symbol DS9808 will not scan barcode


Hello Dbird,
the scanner has several barcode types enabled by default. Other type or lengths must be activated with an programming barcode from the Programm Reference Guide for DS9808.
Please check which kind of barcode are you using. Download the Program Reference Guide from support.symbol.com Scan the barcodes from the chapter Symbologies

How do I get my scanner to go to the next line/box when using Excel?


Hello,

In your programming manual there is a barcode scan that needs to be scanned in that adds the carriage return function. To do this you will first need to scan the barcode to put the unit into program mode, then scan the carriage return barcode, then scan the end programming code. Now when you scan a barcode the scanner will add the return to the sequence it sends to the computer. If you can't find your programming book you can download the sheets from the Symbol web site.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Handheld Symbol LS4000-I100 barcode reader


you need to use the code book (the programmers book) to configure the reader, you need to tell it how to communicate with the PC (bit rate, stop bits etc....)

this code book should have come with the reader...

this book has barcodes on many pages and also configures the types of barcodes that the scanner can read....

if you do not have the code book you can download it from the maufacturers website

Decodeing UPC-A Supplemental 2 or 5 code


you should have a code book that came with the scanner, the code book allows you to program the scanner's options, the code book takes you step by step through the programming proccess. each option requires you to scan varios barcodes to "set" the various options one of the options will be to set the barcodes you wish to use, this is set to avoid a misread (confusion between barcode standards)

Scanner Symbol Ls2208 keyboard not work


The scanner does not detect the keyboard host on power up and is locking up your keyboard. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. The barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. The scanner should start working immediately after the host type barcode is scanned.
