Question about C-Technologies C-Pen 600 Handheld Scanner

C-pen 600 malfunction

I have used my CPen 600 for the last 3 years, but no longer turns on. I've recharged my AAA batteries, but this does not work either. I believe there might be something wrong with the pen itself. If you are able to provide assistance, please contact me via e-mail at gil@umail.ucsb.edu As I am in the middle of completing my dissertation, your assistance will be greatly appreciated. I look forward in receiving your response.

Best,

Oscar

    The battery(ies) are the not the problem. I placed the batteries in another item and they work just fine. I always carry two sets to use with the Cpen, which means all four batteries work just fine. Please provide an alternative solution.

    Thanks,

    How can I determine if it is either the battery contact or another internal problem on the hardware? I have successfully opened the device, but where do I go from here?

    Best,

No power is one of 3 things

1.) Battery / Contacts
2.) power switch or button
3.) dead mainboard.

If its oisnt the battery or the battery contacts then more than likely its the main board thats damaged. You may eighter contact the manugfacturer for a replacement boad or you may need to buy a new one. Other than that there isnt much you can do. As to repairs itself on the board, Its microcircuits which makes repairs and modifications by human hands really difficult.

If you are able to open up the unit, please try to check the contacts of your battery, there is a possibility that the battery contact is broken or rusted.

if it is loose, resolder it and if it is rusted outl just give it a quick cleaning, do be careful though.

good luck

    try to carefully open the unit and check if there are loose solder or broken conenctions, you may need to use a magnifying glass, i would because i have a poor eyesight.

Well As you suggest That the Batteries are Quite fine and charged,We can assume that either the device is down due to an internal problem in the board or the Cord which is in contact the battery is not working..Thus in Both the cases i would highly advice you to take th C-pen for service to the authorised Company Service centre Who can service it unless Hopefully it is not the time To Replace it in case Where you must a new one my friend..

Thank you!!...

I need to replace the F6M 1.2 rechargeable batteries in my CPen 800C. Do you have them in stock and are you in a position to supply them. I am prepared to pay the charge only if you can supply them.


I have just replaced the battery on my C-Pen 800c with one from ESP Special Batteries. They did not have a suitable plug, so I had to remove the wires from the old battery and solder to the new. http://www.espspecialbatteries.co.uk/battery/ESP-1-69-125A This cost 9 pounds 80 including postage.

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).

SuperPen (Wizcom) does not Communicate with PC


Just bought the pen and I've got the same problem. I've tried 2 PCs, one with XP SP2 and the other Vista (using Vista driver from Wizcom). Both give me the same "cannot communicate with Pen" error message. I've double checked every recommendation I could find on Wizcom's website and the internet, but looks like either the cable or pen is faulty. Would be good to know if the new cable they're sending you fixes the problem.

On the main screen tap the "QUIT" in the upper right hand corner of the scrreen. This should bring up a smaller box asking "Are sure you want to quit?" with a "Cancel" and an "OK" tab. Do not select either tab, instead tap you finger on the left side of the small box twice, then on the right side once, then again on the left side (L L R L) in rapid manner. This should bring up a small box stating you are in "Service Mode", tap "OK". This should bring up a box with 3 tabs at the top. Tap the "Battery" tab. The next box will have a tab on the lower left side "Exchange Battery", tap it, then tap "OK" on the next screen. This should set the battery install date to the current date and the expiration date 2 years out. Back out and shut down and reboot. You should no longer get the "Replace battery" message. The screen should display the new dates for the battery.

Hope this helps.
