Is the com port - serial port working and detected in windows? Is the program set to use the correct com port? In many cases there is com 1 com 2 com 3 com 4 and maybe even more, if the wrong port is selected it wont function.

Hi my name is christian canola and i purchased a symbol ls2208 barcode scanner from geminicomputers and i downloaded the program 123 scan2 for my barcode scanner and i click on my scanner is connected via...


Hi Christian, if your scanner was manufactured before February 2010 it may not be able to communicate directly with 123Scan2 so you wont be able to upgrade firmware with the program, but you will still be able to use it to create configuration sheets. These are the only two uses for 123Scan2.

To create a configuration sheet without "finding" the scanner click Create New Configuration then choose My scanner is NOT connected. Select the LS2208 and click on the blue firmware button to get into the configuration. When you have completed your configuration click the Print bar codes selection at the top of the window and when the file comes up be sure to click on the Bar code formatting menu and change the Bar code type to 1D One setting per barcode if it is not already there. Older scanners will not work with concatenated 1D barcodes where 123Scan2 puts more than one setting into a barcode.

How do I get my Symbol LS2208 to recognize EAN128. I need it to prefix [C1 when a EAN 128 is scanned.


you need to scan some of the bar codes found on the manual.
Find the product reference manual -usually found on the cd with the scanner or download from motorola site - and in chapter "symbologies" scan "ENABLE CODE128" barcode.
To have prefix when a code is scanned, scan "SCAN OPTIONS" then " then "ENTER"
Last set the preffix value by scanning "SCAN PREFFIX" then four digits that correspond to the character you want to use as preffix.
If you need more than one character for preffix then you will need the Advanced formatting manual, which ican be downloaded from motorola. In this case you need to create a "rule".

Let me know if you need further assistance

Can't get my computer to communicate and update the Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner.


When you scanned the "set defaults" barcode in the manual, you erased all "host parameters". Find the appropriate HOST barcode and scan it. That should establish communication with the host (Keyboard Wedge, USB, Serial) If you are having issues, contact the Motorola Help Desk at 1-800-653-5350 or me at 1-866-306-7226

Suffix with 2 x ENTER


Try programming it by setting up a pair of ADF rules, each adding an "enter". This is done by scanning configuration barcodes from the manual in the correct sequence. You can get the manual here:

Hello! I have a problem with scanning bar codes by ls2208 scanner. This device uses rs232 serial port, and when I try to read some bar code, the scanner is reading, but there is no number in notepad. How...


Hi,

The scanner is sending the data to the serial port. You need an application to pull that data in off of the COM port. You can test using HyperTerminal. The scanner defaults to 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no hardware or software handshaking. Point HyperTerminal to the correct COM port (most likely COM1) and set it to the settings I just listed. When you scan you should see the data show up in the window.

If you want the data to go into Notepad or any other program expecting keyboard strokes I would recommend the Motorola (formerly Symbol) USB cable CBA-U01-S07ZAR or the CBA-K01-S07PAR keyboard wedge cable.

Is it possible to send two suffix in symbol ls2208


Yes it is possible.

You will need to create the following adf rule which you can do using 123scan.

the barcodes generated will be the following:

Begin new rule.
Send all that remains
Send Extended key <Enter>
Send extended key <Enter>
Save Rule.

If you can't generate them, I can send you a pdf document with them already created.

Can't install Symbol LS2208 barcode scanner on a PC (Wedge cable)


You will need to scan the barcode that configures the LS scanner to use keyboard wedge or even the set all defaults barcode. You will be able to find both of this on the product reference guide that you can download from www.symbol.com in the support page.

P370 WILL NOT connect with your terminal or base, so forget about this intent and go for the goal which is loading your programming to your scanner. According to Motorola the work around is simple and faster than trying to resolve this.
Start with Reseting the scanner completly back to Defaults.
In the 123Scan, PRINT Barcodes and the rules ADF Rules of your programming.
Start scanning from
"Parameter Settings" until the last page barcode "Reset Scanner".
That is it. Problem solved.
You will need to do this for every new programming Rule.
