Question about Symbol CS1504 Handheld Barcode Scanner
When plugging in the USB cable the scanner green LED flashes briefly but the PC just does not flinch - it does not recognise the thing at all. Also tried plugging it in via the serial connector. It came with a Serial cable and serial to usb converter. I also tried connecting it with my blackberry usb cable which has the same connector at the other end. Again nada. Any ideas welcomed. Carl

Your USB ports on your computer may be bad. Do other devices work if you plus them into the same USB port? You can try plugging the scanner into another PC with USB ports. If it works in the other PC, then that points to the original PC's USB ports. You can try buying an add-on USB port or using other USB ports on the PC. If it still does not work, then there may be a problem with the USB port on the scanner, and the scanner itself may need to be serviced.

If the main power button LED is flashing or solid yellow, this could indicate a hardware problem.
Was it running good before?
Are the diagnostic LED lights all green?
Here is what dell says:
If the power light is blinking amber —
The computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
Do you remember what the BSOD said?
