I think you need a data base that relates the bar coded bars to what ever it is you set it up to be.
The scanner is just a machine that sees the lines and spases now you need the software that comnnects this machine and translates or shall I say compares what was scanned to what is in the database. Lets say your data is made of just 3 things.
lets say one will relate to blue next to red next to green
We have to scans of 3 different items and we need to know how many and what kind. Now we have a scanned that reads just these colors. our software is running and in standby polling the port waiting for info. We scan it is scensed by the scanned the scannedr sees a color and it will ID the color by a number 1 or 2 or 3 now it is in our data that a number 1-red was read. the endry is noted and that is incremented .... etc. get the drift is it a scensor and you need the data comarison program that is the root.

My symbol barcode scanner beeps 4 time while I try to scan. The Manual states that the battery is bad. I replaced the battery & it does the same thing.


This 4 beeps also stays for communication error. Please check the connection to the cradle and also the connection between the cradle and PC.
You can start by pairing the scanner with cradle with the Pairing barcode, then defaulting the scanner to the standard settings - use the barcode "Set All Defaults" from the manual. Then select the right host type USB, RS232 or another.
After this procedure should the scanner work.

I would like to transmit EAN-13 bar code without check digit, but closed by ENTER.


If you would like the LS2208 to transmit only the first twelve digits of an EAN-13 barcode followed by an enter you will have to write an Advanced Data Formatting rule using barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide found here: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=114420371&stateId=1%200%20114410810

The barcodes you will print and scan in the order they are listed are:
Begin New Rule
EAN-13 (from the Critera pages of the ADF section)
Send Next 12 Characters
Send Enter key
Save Rule

If all other barcodes require an enter key make sure you scan Scan Options, Data Suffix, Enter (from the same manual or from the Quick Start Guide) before scanning the ADF rule above.

Where is my barcode after I scan it?


Is the cradle connected to the pc via either usb, serial or keyboard wedge?

If so you will need to first, pair the scanner with the cradle by scanning the barcode on the cradle and second, configure the cradle properly so it transmits the data to the host.

Download the product reference guide from motorola website. You will get all the configuration information you need in there.

Extra zero


The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)

Ean 13 problem


you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
