Symbol ls1908 USB scanner scan, but no field input to computer

Why can't my Symbol LS1908T scanner transfer data that it reads? For instance I will scan a barcode and the field that the cursor is on remains blank on the computer. This is true for notepad as well as quickbooks.

Thanks for your help

How do I read Barcodes in Microsoft Excel?


<p>Bar code symbols are composed of a number of adjacent bars and spaces of different widths of pre-defined codes.

I have a Symbol 1908T-1200 which works fine, but I need it to send a line return code after the data. How do I accomplish this.


Hallo Jason,
yes, this can be done automatically, just by scanning three programming barcodes. Please follow the steps in the attached document.

If the scanner beeps just once after a scan, than he recognize the barcode and sends the data to the computer. If you dont receive any data, you are waiting for them on wrong interface. Data from USB or KeyboardWedge do come to Notepad/Word etc. The data from Serial RS232 Connection can you see only in Hyperterminal or similar application.

I have Symbol scanner(1908T-I300) USB Type. It can read bar code but can't move next cell or line when testing Excell or Note Pad.


In the barcode is usually no order, which would say to the computer to change to new line or cell.
You would need to add an suffix to the barcode, check the manual for the procedure or use the following tutorial http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=12295&sliceId=SAL_Public&dialogID=189588227&stateId=1%200%20189576907

My Symbol LS4278 will not transfer data to the computer. I have the PS2 cable and added a PS2 to USB. I get a beep as if the barcode is read, but it's not transferring the data to the program.


Hello,

Be sure to use a full PS2 to USB adapter not just the plug adapter. The one to use has the cable and a small encoder box in the middle, usually for keyboard and mouse together. We have seen some of the cheaper adapters not pass the proper voltages to the scanner for a good read. The ones we suggest to our customers is made by Belkin part # F5U119VE1SN

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

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.

Symbol Spark LS 1004 Problem


What barcode scanner do you have? USB, SERIAL or ps2.

by the way. the old computer is it like NCR, SIEMENS or IBM because then you need to re-program your scanner.

i found a manual where you can set your pc type with barcode scanner. be careful not to scan reset defaults. because you will loose your settings.

look at chapter 4-9 and 4-10

If you don't know ask me. we don't want to lose al the settings.

good luck
