SOURCE: Symbol LS2208 barcode reader no data to screen

Just because it has a DB9 does not mean it is a direct connection. Many Bar code scanners have the DB9 connecting to a interface box and the interface box connects to the PC. If it is really a rs-232 scanner then you need to configure your serial port to the proper settings specified by symbol. But I am confident that this unit is missing the interface box.

You will most likely need a java-bridge to connect to the drivers installed to run the scanner. Maybe google more on Java POS to find out more on connecting Java with POS Devices.

SOURCE: the printer will print a bar code but the reader

Sounds like there are some elements worn off of the printhead causing some of the bars to not be printed. To test, create a label that prints a thick black line or solid black box across the width of the label (assuming a 4" label). Any vertical white lines that show indicate elements that are not functioning.
You could also put one label above the other, lining up the barcodes and you'll probably see bars that are missing from the label that won's scan.
The only ways to correct the problem are to install a new printhead or move the barcode field on the label so that the missing elements fall in the spaces between the bars.

Hope that helps !

What is error code 116 372

What are you trying to print? I've read a couple issues that it could be.

1. If you're trying to print PDFs, try using Foxit Reader or Nuance PDF Reader, instead of Adobe Reader.

2. If its a word doc, there's an issue with the Calibri font in Office 2010. You can either use a different font, or copy the Calibri font from a 2007 install. I'd give you more instructions, but I'm not sure of them. I know fonts reside in c:\windows\fonts but I dont know if there's any other place.

The EMEI Barcode and battery barcode are probably not the same length. When the scanner is set for specific length, he will accept only some barcodes.
Please check the length of the barcode. Set the scanner for two specific lengths or for any length of barcode. Try to scan again.
To set the scanner you would need programming barcodes. Those are listed in the DS6707 Reference Guide, provided at

Cannot get the datalogic qs6000 to scan 39 or 128 barcode

Sounds like you need an updated driver for your POS scanner.

Other than that, try checking the scanners setting your software and make sure it is set for 39 and 128 bar codes. There is usually a setting that will specify what codes the scanner is going to read.

You can always shoot an email over to the datalogic guys and see if they have any more input on the situation.
