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.

Actron code reads po420 catalyst system ??????

Step 1:

A code P0420 may mean that one or more of the following
has happened:

  • Leaded fuelicon1.png was used where unleaded was called for

  • A damaged or failed oxygen sensor (HO2S)

  • Downstream oxygen sensor (HO2S) wiring damaged or connected improperly

  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly

  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / muffler / exhaust pipe

  • Retarded spark timing

  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar
    of readings

  • Leaking fuel injector or high fuel pressure

  • Cylinder misfire

  • Oil contamination

Step 2:

Some suggested steps for troubleshooting a P0420 error
code include:

  • Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair
    as required.

  • Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor
    in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The
    waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).

  • Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S), replace if necessary

  • Replace the catalytic converter

Step 3:

Overall probably the biggest mistake vehicles owners make when they
have a P0420 code is to simply replace an oxygen sensor (H02S). It is
important to do proper diagnosis so you\'re not wasting money replacing
parts unnecessarily.

We strongly recommend that if you need to replace the catalytic
converter that you replace it with an OEM unit. Second choice would be a
high-quality replacement part. There are many stories in our forums
where folks replaced the cat with a cheaper aftermarket one only to have
the code return shortly thereafter.

One thing to note is that many vehicle manufacturers offer a longer warranty
on emissions-related parts. So if you have a newer car but it\'s out of it\'s
bumper-to-bumper warranty, there still may be warranty on this type of problem.
Many manufacturers give a five year, unlimited mileage warranty on these items.
It\'s worth checking into.

No signal at all

Place the cursor in the text box where barcode number should appear.
Place a barcode in front of the reader and see whether it supplies the barcode.
If this does not happen, see whether you need to supply power/batteries.
Read the manual for instructions.
If nothing helps, let us know with details of the barcode reader.

Why doesnt my sd card reader work? I put in my gateway laptop and it doesnt work nothing pops up??

You might just have a bad SD card. Also, if you bought a card that is 4gb or more then you need a SDHC card reader. The HC stands for High Capacity. Look at the card to see if it shows HC under the SD. If it does then you need to find out if your card reader can read SDHC. If it can't then you need to go buy a new card reader that can do SDHC.

Reader not scanning cards correctly

I've already contacted the vendor of the application to make adjustments to the data rate in his program. I believe this is a software issue rather than a hardware problem.
It took me alot of reading and searching online..... no tech support came through for me.

Barcode readers are autonomous (no computer interaction required for them to work) readers beep to confirm that the barcode is valid, unfortunately this does not confirm that it has made it to the computer, you need to ensure that the driver & capture software is installed properly, check that the device is showing correctly in device manager.

This is a setting issue of your barcode scanner, the only way to solved the issue is to find the manual and look for the settings that are most likely what you need to display and send data.
