You would need to setup the scanner to communicate in proer way, please use the barcode "Simple COM Port Emulation" from the Manual here http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=189660311&stateId=1%200%20189654341

How do I get my Symbol LS2208 to recognize EAN128. I need it to prefix [C1 when a EAN 128 is scanned.


you need to scan some of the bar codes found on the manual.
Find the product reference manual -usually found on the cd with the scanner or download from motorola site - and in chapter "symbologies" scan "ENABLE CODE128" barcode.
To have prefix when a code is scanned, scan "SCAN OPTIONS" then " then "ENTER"
Last set the preffix value by scanning "SCAN PREFFIX" then four digits that correspond to the character you want to use as preffix.
If you need more than one character for preffix then you will need the Advanced formatting manual, which ican be downloaded from motorola. In this case you need to create a "rule".

Let me know if you need further assistance

I cant use symbol ls2208ap . how i use it


hello, once you have it connected to your computer via usb, serial or keyboard wedge, you scan the barcodes that come in the user guide to set it up, its pretty much a plug and play. you can find the quick start guide at

I have a telxon ptc-610 and a new symbol LS2208 and can't get it to scan? Do I need to program?


Hello swschmidt. You are spot-on! You need to do a wee bit of configuration. I host he LS2208 manual on my company site for my clients (www.shiftintoblue.com/resources/ls2208_manual.pdf). Head to page 146: "Wand Emulation Host Parameters". Print that page and scan the 'Symbol PTC Terminal (Telxon)' barcode and you'll be all set. I hope this helped. Good luck!

Can't get my computer to communicate and update the Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner.


When you scanned the "set defaults" barcode in the manual, you erased all "host parameters". Find the appropriate HOST barcode and scan it. That should establish communication with the host (Keyboard Wedge, USB, Serial) If you are having issues, contact the Motorola Help Desk at 1-800-653-5350 or me at 1-866-306-7226

Hello! I have a problem with scanning bar codes by ls2208 scanner. This device uses rs232 serial port, and when I try to read some bar code, the scanner is reading, but there is no number in notepad. How...


Hi,

The scanner is sending the data to the serial port. You need an application to pull that data in off of the COM port. You can test using HyperTerminal. The scanner defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no hardware or software handshaking. Point HyperTerminal to the correct COM port (most likely COM1) and set it to the settings I just listed. When you scan you should see the data show up in the window.

If you want the data to go into Notepad or any other program expecting keyboard strokes I would recommend the Motorola (formerly Symbol) USB cable CBA-U01-S07ZAR or the CBA-K01-S07PAR keyboard wedge cable.

Symbol has confirmed that there was a batch of scanners sent out with defective lasers. Call them at 800-653-5350 for a replacement. Have the scanner handy to give them the serial number. They were very helpful.

Symbol LS2208 barcode reader no data to screen


Just because it has a DB9 does not mean it is a direct connection. Many Bar code scanners have the DB9 connecting to a interface box and the interface box connects to the PC. If it is really a rs-232 scanner then you need to configure your serial port to the proper settings specified by symbol. But I am confident that this unit is missing the interface box.
