Hi. The scannabar is giving error 10065, signal error. We are set up on a functioning wireless network (the very one I'm messaging you from)

Go into the scannabar system itself on your desktop.... there should be an icon for your handheld... click on that icon.. there should be a box telling you whether your handheld is online or offline... most of the time the handheld will reset itself to offline... just click online and you are ready to scan.

Could you tell me what has to be done when the only item appearing on the screen is MC70?

Resetting the EDA

There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the EDA by closing all running
programs. A cold boot also restarts the EDA, and also resets the clock. Data saved in flash memory or a memory card is not lost.
Perform a warm boot first. If the EDA still does not respond, perform a cold boot.

Performing a Warm Boot - Soft reset

Hold down the Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the EDA starts to boot release the Power button.

Performing a Cold Boot - Hard reset

To perform a cold boot simultaneously press the Power button and the 1 and 9 keys.
