Question about Symbol LS 4278 Barcode Scanner
Hi,, ok the beeping means it scanned, however, the tones after it means that there is not response from the application sever. Let me explain. The bar code scanner is OPOS, and requires POS software for it to work right. in other words its designed specifically for POINT OF SALE DEVICES. 1 such program is cash register express.
click that link full out the form and you will get a FREE FULLY WORKING VERSION.
what happens is the scanner, scans, sends it to the pc, the opos software takes the info, and sends back a message saying thanks, the scanner isnt getting the thank you message and thats why it appears a bit grumpy with the tones and all.
Any POS software will work, you just need to install it, setup the devices propperly on it and caliberate it which can be tricky for people. dont wory i am not letting go out in the cold alone.
That is the getting started ,manual with full detailed instructions in setting up the device in CRE (cash register express).. same principle is used in any pos .. OPOS can be complicated and scary, but use that guide and you'll be fine.. Is in pdf format and requires adobe acrobat reader to open, more than likely you already have that. so just save a copy or print it out.
PS the manual has instructions for cash draws and printers as well..
let me know if you need more help,, bye..

Welcome to Fixya. If you are receiving Three quick beeps (all the same tone) it means that the battery is low. Since this was a brand new device then you need to charge it up same with other device that uses a battery that you need to change before you use it. I attached the manual below so that if you have questions about the functions of the Scanner you can use it a reference.

There are three possibilities I can think of assuming this is not a brand new scanner:
1. The LS4278 is faulty - which given Symbols quality I would say it is normally not the case unless th scanner has been dropped or otherwise damaged.
2. The cradle is not charging the scanner. You may wish to try another cradle - one that you know is charging aother scanner. After a few minutes you should be able to see the laser.
3. The battery in the scanner either needs a recondition (see product reference guide), or needs replacement.
