After scanning a bar code I need it to enter and go to next row in excel


Hi,

This can be possible, therefore it is not an Excel setting. You would need
to use the software that comes with your bar-code reader to configure this.

Try looking in your bar-code reader documentation for "Append Enter" or
"Append Carriage Return"

You would need an application, which can use the scanner. If there is no app preinstalled use the DataWedge provided by Symbol on their support pages.
http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=10774

You can install the whole package on the desktop PC and then connect your PDA. The DataWedge will be installed automatically.

I have third party software to initiate scanner functions on the Motorola but they do not work. In fact I cannot even scan without using the "Rapid Deployment Client" provided with the hardware.How do I...


DataWedge is an Application provided by Symbol/Motorola to enable the scanning module also for application without the driver. Scanned barcode is sent like an usual keyboard input.
There can be just one active application using the barcode scanner. If you are running DataWedge, you would need to stop it before starting any other application with built-in scanner drivers.
To stop DataWedge just click on the barcode icon in a right down corner and select - Disable DataWedge

Cannot Get Symbol m2004-i290 cyclone to work with Beetle /M


When connecting to a serial port there are a couple of things that could be causing the issue. The biggest problems are usually one of these:
  1. The app does not accept serial data.
  2. The RS-232 settings of the scanner and serial application do not match.
  3. The cable issue.
  4. The data is not using the termination character the application needs.
Are you using a Symbol 25-32465-20 or CBA-R01-S07PAR cable?

If so, do you know for sure your application accepts serial data? The scanner puts the data on the COM port and the application takes it from there. A good test is to try the scanner in Hyper Terminal if you have it. It is usually listed under: Programs>Accessories>Communications.

The M2004 series scanners default to 9600 baud (or bits per second), 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no hardware or software flow control.

When starting HyperTerminal you may have to go through a screen that asks for a phone number. Just enter something and click OK to get to the next screen (sorry I can not remember exactly what that screen looks like- once it is set you do not see it again.) Next will be the Connection Description window. You will name the session (name it anything you would like) then click OK. Next is the Connect To box. Select your COM port in the Connect Using box, the first three boxes do not matter. When you click OK a Properties window will open. Most likely you will only have to change the Bits per second to 9600 and the Flow control to None. When you click OK your session should be active. You will have a blinking cursor in the upper left corner and in the bottom left portion of the window you should see the session time counting up. You can now try to scan a barcode. If the data shows up you know the scanner and cable are both working.

If you know your application accepts serial data (Word, Notepad, Excel do not) then it may be the application needs to see a carriage return at the end of the data. The CR is added by scanning Scan Options, Data Suffix, Enter from the M2000 Series Product Reference Guide. Test the scanner. If you still do not get data scan Scan Suffix, 1,0,1,3. Again all of these barcodes are in the M2000 PRG which can be obtained here:
http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=3969606apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=116516744&stateId=0%200%2011867900

Hopefully this information will be helpful in getting the M2004 working.

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.
