PCS Powerscan problems

I have a PCS Powerscan that won't always scan a barcode.  The device with "beep" as if a scan was captured, but no data is detected.  Attempted in Notepad as well.  If I unplug the device and plug it back in, it then works, but only for a few scans.  The cycle then repeats itself.
I know it's not a distance issue with the Wireless device, since I am scanning right next to the Transmitter. I have PSC Model:Powerscan barcode scanner. It reads the barcode but seems too slow to recognise the barcode and does not capture the data.

    They usually do this when the screen is dirty. You can clean it with a computer screen cleaning kit (cloth and solution). If this does not work the lamp inside the scanner may be faulty or opaque from use, and is not giving back enough light. In this case you will need to take your barcode scanner to a service and have the lamp replaced.

Refer with an expert within store structure to derive most productivities either setting to capture an much to the convenience to product experts.

Scanner beeps but doesn't enter data into system

Have you scanned the configuration barcodes on the manual? For example if you are using keyboard wedge cable, you will need to scan the keyboard wedge barcode from the manual. Page 20.

Scan the Set all defaults barcode from the product reference guide and set the scanner to use USB again if required. This should sort out your problem.
