Symbol scanner M2007-I425 Is this a POE What's the voltage?

Mine is model M2007-I425 (M2K1175)
According to your question about POE, although it uses the same RJ45 as ethernet, it is NOT an ethernet port. It's a USB connector on mine at least. Good luck, hope you haven't blown it up with crazy voltage :)
So to answer your question, I would say 5 volts and I have no pinout for you atm.

When holding the <b>Barcode Scanners</b>, so that folds down to the far corners of the upright. Instead, keep your wrist in a relatively straight as the one holding the pen. Using area <b>Barcode Scanners</b> or place of the product being scanned instead of bending or twisting your corner of the great writing.<br />

Power button stuck down on gateway laptop

I doubt this would work twice, but a 30-min drive to the repair shop unstuck my power button. It was even in a padded case. Cheapest repair ever! (Hate me if you must but worth a try right?)

The button has been flaky for months. One day the laptop suddenly turned on by itself. When I turned it off it immediately started again from sleep/hibernate/shutdown. Pressing it 20x, spraying with compressed air and swearing didn't fix it. Instead of pulling the battery, I set Power Plan to "Power Saver" with everything set to minimum after 5 min., power button to do nothing, and NO timed shutdowns.

Activem1 usb 320 speakers. Live in Australia. Right speaker does not have voltage select switch. Only supplied with american power cord. Can I plug an Australian power cord straight into 240 volt...

No you cannot plug it directly into 240 volts, you will damage your speakers.

You need to get a step down transformer 240 volts down to 115 volts. These are available from Jaycar. Make sure you select a unit with a wattage equal to or greater to the wattage rquirements of the speaker system otherwise you will overload the transformer and it will fail.

SMPS is short form of Switching Mode Power Supply. SMPS is used to supply power to computers. The underlying technology converts 110/220 Volt AC to 3.3 - 12 Volt dc with an efficiency of 70-90%.

Extra zero

The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)
