PPT2846 Dies Whenever Scan Trigger is Pushed

I have 2 Symbol PocketPC's model number PPT 2846 that shut down whenever the scan trigger is pressed.

Thought it might be a battery/power issue however I have used several good batteries with same results. All settings and configurations are correct.

Anyone experieinced this and how is it corrected?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you have a faulty laser moule, which overtaxes / shorts accross the battery, I am unsure whether this is user servicable, and may require a prefessional repair to replace the laser pack.

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.

WILL I NEED INTERNET ACCESS


I can help you ...

Are you referring to the base kit for manufacturing floors ? What is the model number of your base?

I suspect when you say base you are actually referring to an access point. It would likely be model 5131 or (older)4131.

That access point can support many devices. Hence you need only one. Be careful to turn on WEP encryption (or TKIP) on the access point so you don't become the next TJmax!

Hope it helps.
