Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld

Open Question

Help! They just keep dying on me!

I have fried 3 (!) brand new barcode scanners in the past 3 months. I am using them with a Compaq Presario C714NR notebook. I take it out of the box, plug it into the USB port, place it in its holder and scan barcodes. For 2 weeks or so it works perfectly, then it suddenly fails. The red light is dim and intermittent and it just dies. What could I possibly be doing wrong???

SOURCE: Barcode scanner scans and beeps, but will not put the numbers in the computer

There is more than one way for that imager to send data to the computer. Are you using USB, serial, or is there a little box that goes between your existing keyboard and the PC that accepts the scanner connector?

You have to use a program which will activate the scanner.

You can use DataWedge, which will send the scanner input to whatever has focus:

It can read all standard symbologies apart from PDF symbologies unless it is equipped with an imager scan engine.

MC9090 won't read any barcodes - brand new device right out of the box. The RFID scanner works fine with Gen 2 tags.

What software are you using to connect to the scanner? If you custom wrote your own software, you will need to download the SDK for the software to interface to the scanner. If you are using a COTS, you can download Datawedge from the Motorola support website. This is a MID software that converts the barcodes into keystrokes. So when your cursor is in a field and you can, the data from the barcode goes into the field.

If this is a new handheld, contact Motorla, you have a year of support, use it. They will be glad to help.
