I have a problem in my QS6000 plus scanner having Powered USB interface. The scanner starts to throw green LED indication and stops scanning barcode abruptly. Please advice. I am using IBM PC with Powered USB port.

try the other usb ports. sometimes that works. also make sure that your other usb devices are off if possible. If you are using a usb keyboard try using a ps/2 keyboard. If you have an open usb port in the front try using that instead. I have seen this many times. Good luck.
Most probably you have only one slot of RAM (a 256MB) if so you will need to upgrade it to more such as 1GB of RAM, the problem seems to be that the OS needs more Random Access Memory to connect with your Scanners drivers and make them part of the system such that you can be able to use it when you log in this becomes a problem as with limited Memory the OS fails to read the drivers and linking the scanner gets interrupted thus hanging on startup as it has other processes using the RAM at the same time and thus sharing it with the Scanner drivers and configurations. After other programs and processes have finished to run and minimal background processes are left after logon then this means more RAM is available so the Scanner can work easily when plugged at this point.
If it doesn't scan anymore you must reprogram the interface (usb or serial) if it's bleutooth then it is not communicating correctly with the host, check the bind if it must be bound . You cans download the manual from www.datalogic.com psc has been bought by datalogic
My guess is that the USB hub needs to be plugged in ... if for some reason the usb hub doesn't allow you to plug it in then you need to get one that you can plug in... because I believe the scanner is using more power that the usb port can power. Scanner usually need to be plugged directly into the computer or they need to be plugged into a powered hub.
you can not change a qs6000 from ps2 to usb by just changing the cable. the interface inside the unit needs to support usb, to check this look at label with the serial number and if it says "I/F=KBW/RS" your our of luck, and can only use ps2 or rs232. if it says "I/F=UW" then you can just scan 3 barcode from the manual to set the interface to usb
