    We are having the same issue. AND the physical keyboard does not work. Called motorola and they said to reseat the keyboard and/or cold boot. Neither work our rep from the software company basically told us it is broken. I can use the virtual keyboard (on the led screen) and it works BUT it is kind of a pain when you have to enter a lot of numbers and letters.

    Go in to Internet Explorer, then View, then Internet Options. Go to the advanced tab, scroll down, and select the option "Disable Auto SIP". This will keep the virtual keyboard from coming up in Internet Explorer.

How do you enable the scanner on the MC9090 fresh out of the box?

Easiest and quickest way is to go to:-

select your unit type from the pull down menu's and search for Datawedge. Install it through ActiveSync. You will require a cradle and USB cable and ActiveSync installed on your host PC.

Once installed it will allow you to enter barcodes directly into apps on the MC9090.

Could not active it the scanner on the MC9090

The link works for me DataWedge provides a convenient mechanism for non-scanning aware applications to receive data from embedded or connected data capture devices. It allows the user to capture data into any application that accepts keyboard input. It supports four types of Data Feeds: Barcode Scanners, RFID Tag Readers, MSR Readers and Serial Data Input. It provides user with text/hex data formatting and prefix/suffix facilities. Description
  1. New Test and Log Display.
  2. Improved DataWedge Startup Time for MSR and RFID
  3. Gen2 RFID Support
  4. Device enable/disable persistence over cold boot
  5. Virtual Key Support in Prefix/Suffix
  6. Performance improvements for MSR
  7. Enable Serial Interface on startup
  8. Support added for Event based Serial reading.
  9. Delays regarding RFID are fixed.
  10. Several Barcode character mapping issues fixed.
make sure some security software is not blocking your access

Hi, I'm writing a php page to be used on the MC9090 and I want the laser to be activated when focus is on a specific input box. Seeing as I'm new to the MC9090 scanner I don't have a clue where to start....

I'm not sure if you can trigger the scanner based on a web field but you can just enable the Data wedge software which will allow the scan to input anywhere you have the cursor. The scanner will be "active" all the time but won't actually scan until you pull the trigger. You can download the datawedge software from

How do I change the sleep timer settings on a Motorola MC9090

A - From the Windows Mobile user interface:

1. Tap Start (the Windows Logo), then Settings.
2. Tap the System tab.
3. Tap the Power icon.
4. Tap the Advanced tab.

You can change the number of minutes before power is turned off when on battery and when on external power from there. You can also uncheck the "Turn off device if not used for" check box to disable the timeout entirely.

B - From the registry (useful for deploying the setting as a .reg file to the device, in case you have many MC9090 guns you are supporting or you are wanting to set it to a value the user interface does not support):


The above values are in hex and represent the number of seconds before timing out when on battery or AC power. For example, to set the BattSuspendTimeout to 180 seconds, you would set it to dword:000000B4. To disable it entirely (the equivalent of unchecking the checkbox in the user interface), set the value to 0.
