    Many thanks for the reply.

    Since you have tried the correct procedure and still it is unable to scan, it might be due to a hardware issue. Kindly refer the servicing to a trained service professional.

    Thanks once again.

Barcode scanner for symbol MC70 is not working. The red beam shows when the button is pressed but when I scan a barcode nothing happens. Thanks, Pari Benson

Hello is_bsp,
which scanning application are you using? You could test the functionality by installing the manufacturer's application called DataWedge, provided here for download

PDT8146 question I want to take out the radio card on my PDT8146 and run it in batch mode like an PDT8100 how can I do this? Will taking the radio card out do it or do I need to turn off software setting...

Yes, taking the radio out will make the unit batch. There is no sofware switch to tell the scanner, you need to reflash it with Batch Platform Hex file. Let me know what Operating System you have and which Processor. XScale or Strong Arm and I can get you the right files. I can provide steps necessary for this request. You can always contact me directly or 630-622-2024 toll free 866-271-9891 Ask for Andrew

MC50 scanning engine is who you should goto since it is a enterprise device. Not many people have the dev kits for these devices.

I only have experience with mc9000. I know when it refuses scan (or activate) is has to do with the software being used to communicate with the scanner itself. Re flashing the device usually fixes it.
