Re: Scanner Symbol Ls2208 keyboard not work
The scanner does not detect the keyboard
host on power up and is locking up your keyboard. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode must be scanned the first
time it is setup. The barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342
of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. The scanner should start working immediately after the host type barcode is scanned.

Do you have more than one of this model scanner? If so, I would test a different one on the same computer to make sure it is not a computer issue. Be sure to test it in the same USB port to get an accurate test.
Having a second scanner would also allow you to switch out the cable connecting the scanner to the computer. The end of the cable which plugs into the scanner is an RJ45/Ethernet end. You will need a flat head screw driver to push down on the tab to release it from the scanner. Swap the cables and see if the problem follows the cable or the scanner. If it follows the cable, you can replace the cable for cheap. If it follows the scanner, I would plug the scanner into the working computer and reset the scanner to factory default using the Symbol Book of programming barcodes.
Try a different USB port with the original scanner.
You can also reset to factory default if you don't have a second scanner using Symbols book of programming barcodes.
The LS2208 is a universal scanner with many supported interfaces. Please check the ATS if one of the interfaces are available. See the list below:
Undecoded Scanner Emulation
hello, once you have it connected to your computer via usb, serial or keyboard wedge, you scan the barcodes that come in the user guide to set it up, its pretty much a plug and play. you can find the quick start guide at
You will need to scan the barcode that configures the LS scanner to use keyboard wedge or even the set all defaults barcode. You will be able to find both of this on the product reference guide that you can download from www.symbol.com in the support page.
Check that the wedge is good. It is basically a hybrid spltter that powers both the scanner and the keyboard.
If so, you may want to go direct to either a serial port or a USB direct connection
the scanner turns on automatically as he he receives power from the host interface.
Please check the cables and connection.
For RS232 interface would you need an external power supply.
USB can power the scanner without external power supply.
By Keyboard Wedge installation please connnect also the Keyboard.
