It could be the scanner is not paired to the cradle. The scanner will be once for the barcode and then four times for the communication error. Make sure the cradle has power; it will pull power from a USB port. Scan the pairing barcode on top of the cradle. The scanner will give a high low high low beep and then shortly after give a short low short high beep indicating the radios have paired. If the scanner still beeps four times after doing this, the host type may not be set. If connecting USB scan HID Keyboard from the LS4278 Product Reference Guide.
I am sure the original poster will have probably replaced the unit by now but I just had a similar problem with my Epson Perfection 2480 Photo scanner so I think it is still worth posting the solution in case other people hit this problem in the future.
All I had to do was put the switch underneath the scanner to the "unlocked" position and then reboot the unit.
Hey presto it burst back into life.
It's annoying to see that the manual seems to suggest that the red light means the unit is "dead" !
Try and reset the player. Reset the player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. Then try this Connect the player to your computer. The screen on your player should turn on, show 'Connected' and indicate the battery charging or full. - If the player does not turn on try other USB ports or on another computer if one is available. Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer USB port and not to a USB hub. - If there is nothing showing on the screen and the player does show up in as a storage device in an explorer window, then the players screen is just not working. If you receive the error "USB Device Not Recognized" on the computer, the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem. <<<<< BUT TRY THIS ALSO >>>>> Check the Device Manager 1. Right-click My Computer, and select -- > Manage.

Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes. NOTE: If a device with yellow exclamation point (!) continually appears and disappears, then the player is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem. >>>> BUT TRY THIS <<<<<<< Connect using MSC mode Connecting in MSC mode will help determine if there is a problem with MTP mode or with the Auto Detect mode feature of the player. You can use Forced MSC mode or switch the player settings to MSC. Verifying and changing the USB mode of the device to MSC or MTP From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB Mode.

I had a similar freezing problem with a wireless Logitech mouse and also a problem with the wireless keyboard, sometimes keystrokes would not register and sometimes they'd repeat a dozen times. I was not able to fix the problem, so I got a Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard, hoping it was a driver conflict that wouldn't affect both products. Wrong. The exact same thing happened to the Microsoft mouse and keyboard. The cause of the problem turned out be that I had the receiver plugged into a USB hub along with several other devices. Moving the receiver to one of the USB ports in the back of the PC fixed the problem. Apparently these wireless desktop devices don't like sharing USB resources with anything else.
Try to replace the usb cable and try to plug it in a different USB port on your computer. Hope it didnt break aything when it fell, try to check the ports from the scanner as well. make sure you are not getting any red light when scanner is turned on. check under device manager for conflicts under imaging devices. If you see a question mark or if the scanner is not listed unde imaging devices, keep me posted so that we can check on your unit. Thanks!!
We had a GE 7 port usb port and it overheated and melted----thank goodness I got up when I did or the house would have caught on fire. The only thing we had connected to the usb port was a APC battery backup unit. Any reason why the usb port overheated?
It was pugged into the battery backup unit and I am hesitant to rehook the computer up to the battery backup unit and also will not by another GE usb hub again and whatever hub we do use, I will not plug it into an outlet!
the computer was downstairs and I noticed the odor of electrical burning smell upstairs---the unit was bought nov 25, 2007 and we returned it to BJ'S for a refund today-----I do not reccomend this product to anyone.
