How do i get the internet explorer message that appears from time to time off the screen of motorola mc3190 without having to shut it down


The key combination you looking for to close any window or message in a Windows environment is ALT+F4, depending on the type of keypad the Motorola MC3190G are using.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

48-Key Keypad

The ALT functions are indicated in blue on the keypad, so in order to use these, you have to activate the ALT Functions first by pressing the BLUE BUTTON (FUNC) (Right side below ENTER button) and then press the CTRL BUTTON (left side below BKSP button).

After the key combination is pressed, the ALT icon appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the ALT icon appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.5 devices.

Now you can press the "D" button to use F4, this will close any window or message that is currently in view.

38-key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC BUTTON (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and then press CTRL button (Middle below UP ARROW button), now you can press the F4 button.

28-Key Keypad

Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and then press the CTRL button (Top right side below RIGHT ARROW button), now you can press number 4 to use F4.

Hope this helps, good luck.

'tab' button doesn't work on Motorola MC3190


You get 3 different keypad models of the Motorola MC3190:
- 28 Key Numeric
- 38 Key Shifted Alpha
- 48 Key Alpha Numeric

So depending on the type of keyboard your model has, using TAB are different across these 3 keypads.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

When the FUNC button is pressed the icon "F" appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the icon "Blue Circle" appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.1 devices.

In order to use the TAB function, do the following:

28 Key Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

38 Key Shifted Alpha - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

48 Key Alpha Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below ENTER button) and press the number 9 button.

I have two MC9090s where it will not go past the splash screen. It will notify me of whether I did warm boot, cold boot, or if the battery door is open, so it's not frozen at the screen. I've requested...


Press and hold the trigger while cold booting the device. THEN PUT STRAIGHT INTO A POWERED CRADLE (or the loading menu will not display)

If you really struggle contact www.portablesolutions.com to have the units repaired.

Need to reload Symbol PDT 6846 scanners


To configure the terminal Ctrl-C to drop you to a DOS prompt then type cfg11 this will then take you a configuration screen where you can enter wireless and IP settings.

I can’t say about what program you are trying to load. If you get the system to associate then the next step is to configure the host settings.

FUNC-CTL-R at the Connect to Host screen

Password: system

Then you can add host settings.

It’s a shame we fix PDT6846's all the time and if we replace the board reconfigure them for the customer.

Unit will not boot. Screen reads


"Check serial Input" is just part of the cycle on boot up. It checks for a key press on boot up so that it can access a hidden menu. A cradle, serial null modem cable and hyper-terminal is required to bring up this menu

You can try and re-install the operating system.

Download the latest image from Intermec (you will need to register) and then load the image onto an SD card.

Remove the front cover just above the scan engine; 2 slot head screws and insert the SD card. Cold boot the device. Take off battery and hit the reset button a few times. Re-install battery.

Image will begin to reload.

Detailed instructions are available with the download.

NOTE: The latest image downloads from Intermec not longer have the Telnet application pre-installed. If you require the telnet client then select a previous version, but then also not that there are usually 2 versions EX25 and non-EX25 scan engine type.

The touch screen doesn´t work.


Unfortunately I havea similar problem, the screen itself is bad and is probably a little off in the middle. The way to keep it from needing to be calibrated is simple but you need two of the exact same device to do it. Asuming you have 2 google "motorola remote capture" use the program to capture on the good device then deploy to the defective device.
