Question about C-Technologies C-Pen 600C Handheld Scanner

C-Pen 600c Can't turn it off !!!

Hi. I have the C-Pen 600c scanner pen, and I have not been able to turn it off for a several months now. When holding in the power button to turn it off, it turns off and immeadiately turns back on again. The only way that I can turn it off now is to pull out the batteries. I can't seem to find anything in the manual to help , and since this is an old discontinued model, I can't get tech support anymore.
Please help with any info that you might have.

    Yes. Yesterday I have noted the same behaivor from my c-pen as described in previous post, it doesn't switch off. Futhermore it seems to be stuck in some state I mean when I switch it on it shows me the same word that was translated last before this problem appeared. Seems to be problem with memory failure. By the way I've found that switching it on pressing roll-press-bottom and side-long-bottom immediately transfers device to get safe mode. But what is next I don't know. May be thereis an option to reset this device.

    Anyway I'm waiting impatiently for solution or any advice.

Sounds like when you release the button the button is activating again and turning it back on clean it out with rubbing alchol be sure not to use it until its 100% dry!

C-PEN dead battery

If the charger is connected to C-Pen and the recharging
process does not start, follow these instructions.
1. Disconnect the charger from your C-Pen.
2. Insert something thin (like an unfolded paperclip) into
the reset hole and press gently.
3. Reconnect the charger to C-Pen.
4. C-Pen should begin recharging the battery within 10
seconds. If recharging does not start (the battery power
level icon is not moving in the status field) please
repeat steps 1-3 above. Remember to make sure that
the charger is not connected to C-Pen while pressing
the reset button.
There is no way to access the battery since it is built in. To replace it you would have to open it up, if you would like to attempt this the battery type is Rechargeable, NiMH.

C pen 20

I found a solution before asking help from c-pen support.

1. Uninstall C-Pen software
2. Remove C Technologies entries from registry. They appear in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software
3. Reinstall C-Pen software (remove the pen from USB before reinstalling)

This worked in my system(Vista 32-bit).
