SOURCE: Need to reload Symbol PDT 6846 scanners

To configure the terminal Ctrl-C to drop you to a DOS prompt then type cfg11 this will then take you a configuration screen where you can enter wireless and IP settings.

I can’t say about what program you are trying to load. If you get the system to associate then the next step is to configure the host settings.

FUNC-CTL-R at the Connect to Host screen

Password: system

Then you can add host settings.

It’s a shame we fix PDT6846's all the time and if we replace the board reconfigure them for the customer.

SOURCE: Terminal cannot associate with AP Problem

The terminal's Status LED indicates the state of the 6800's connection to either of the RF
networks:

  • Off indicates that the radio is working and associated with an access point (Spectrum24) or base station (Spectrum One).
  • If it Flashes red once per second, this indicates that the radio is out of range or not associated with an access point or base station.
If you have multiple portable terminals, and this is the only one with issues making a connection to the AP, then the PDT6846 configuration is probably the issue here, as the unit does not associate when within range of the access point. This problem could also be indicative of either an internally defective RF card or simply a weak signal output from the PDT6846 due in large part to a weak battery.

ACTION STEPS
  1. Verify PDT6846 configuration.
  2. Verify PDT6846 is operating with a fully charged battery.
  3. Warm boot PDT6846 to reestablish radio association.
If problem persists, the PDT6846 requires repair attention specific to the internal radio card.

Rebooting the Device
Try rebooting the device using a Warm Boot. If the Warm Boot doesn't fix the problem, try a Cold Boot.

Warm Boot
A warm boot resets the operating system while preserving the program and data on the RAM disk. This process is similar to pressing the keys on a PC, except that it does not clear the system's memory. To perform a warm boot:
For the 35-Key terminal:
  1. Power the terminal off
  2. Press and hold and
  3. Press and release
  4. Release and .
For the 46-Key terminal:
  1. Power the terminal off
  2. Press and hold and
  3. Press and release
  4. Release and .
The terminal displays configuration information, copyright, RAM size, and expanded memory RAM size. Other information displayed depends on the operating system, installed device drivers, and AUTOEXEC.BAT commands. If this warm boot procedure fails to restart the terminal, use the Cold Boot procedure.

Cold Boot
A cold boot fully resets the system and clears memory, including the RAM disk. Any programs and data stored in memory or on the RAM disk are deleted. Nonvolatile memory (NVM - the Application EEPROM) is not affected. Caution: This procedure permanently erases all data and software in the terminal unless they reside in NVM. Contents of RAM are lost. To perform a cold boot:
For the 35-Key terminal:
  1. Power the terminal off
  2. Press and hold , , and Up Arrow
  3. Press and release
  4. Release , , and Up Arrow.
For the 46-Key terminal:
  1. Power the terminal off
  2. Press and hold , , and
  3. Press and release
  4. Release , , and .
The terminal displays version information, copyright, RAM size, and installed expanded memory RAM size. Other information displayed depends on the operating system, installed device drivers, and AUTOEXEC.BAT commands.

Cold-Boot Failure
During a cold boot, the system briefly displays a status line for each driver as it loads in the
format:
0: Driver #.##

The line shows a status value, usually 0, followed by the name and version number of the
driver. If the system halts at one of these lines and displays a status value other than 0, the
displayed device driver failed to load properly.

If such a failure occurs, try cold booting the terminal again. If this does not solve the problem, call the Symbol Support Center.

Frozen PDT6846


Probably not -- looks like corrupt firmware -- it'll have to go to a Symbol/Motorola Dealer for repair.
