Cipherlab 1160 bar code scanner

We have to shake it hard to make the red light go off and shake it again to get it to go on. Button we press doesn't work.

Any ideas that I can do to make it work right again. It would be very much appreciated.

Open the scanner and check for solders dry joints, then re-solder.
check the cable connector maybe it is not snap right.
shaking device to make it work usually mean something loose in solder or cable connections.

I have a Cipherlab scanner 8001, when i connect it to a linux computer, it doesnt download it gives me a Time out error, but when i connect a Cipher scanner 711 to the same COM port it works. Please advice...

OK,you indicated COM1 serial port is working on the a Cipher scanner 711.
Please check the communication setting on the Cipher scanner 711.
The most popular setting are
9600 bps 8 bits N for no parity check and 1 for check bit.
Short for as
9600 8 N 1
Check the setting on the Cipher scanner 711 communication speed and make set the Cipherlab scanner 8001 to the same rate.
MAKE SURE YOU RE-BOOT the Cipherlab scanner 8001 before re-try.

Please keep me up to date on the fix via email.

One flashing red light on xbox360 ( not red ring)

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.
Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

Once you get this code, go to:
To get the reason for the code.

An E7 is related to the scanner. The lamp carriage is gettiing hung up on something or a cable has broken or popped off a pulley. What I have seen most of the times, is the lamp carriage is hitting the sensor that tells the machine the lamp is in the ready position. Biased to the left side of the machine. remove the platen glass and see if you can move the lamp fairly easily. And when movine it back to the left, pay attention if you feel it hitting something.
Also here is the procedure to clear the code.
Performing a Fault Reset 1 01 will reset your Scanner, and allow you to check the Scanner for broken parts as it moves.
  1. Find the pink Clear button on the Control Panel of the WorkCentre.
  2. Find the button below the word Auto.
  3. Press these buttons in the following sequence: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] NOTE: All of the lights on the Control Panel should go out and the LED Display should go blank. If the lights do not go out, then repeat step 3 until they do. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the pace of the [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] sequence.
  4. Press the [1's] Key to enter 1 in the LED Display, as if you were to make 1 copy.
  5. Press the green [Start] button. '00' will flash in the LED Display.
  6. Press the [1's] Key to enter 01 in the LED Display, as if you were to make 1 copy.
  7. Press the green [Start] button. '01' will be in the LED Display and '100%' will be selected.
  8. Lift the Document Cover.
  9. Press the green [Start] button. The Scanner Bar should move from left to right under the Platen Glass.
  10. Visually check the Scanner Bar as it is moving to make sure it runs all the way across.
  11. Check the Mirror that follows the Scanner Bar to see if it is broken or cracked. NOTE: If you need to see the Scanner Bar and Mirror move again, press the green [Start] button again.
  12. Press the pink [Clear] button four times.
  13. The WorkCentre should now warm up and come to ready.
