Ms9520 buzzez and then will not scan

Hi, I own a metrologic ms9520 voyager scanner. It was scanning fine yesterday. Today it wasn't working at all. If we disconnect it from the computer then reconnect it and it makes the beep. Afterwards we get a single dot of light when trying to scan anything. After about five tries at scanning it makes a low buzzing sound and then will not work at all. The laser light will not activate and none of the green and orange lights on the top of the device will activate. Any help regarding this problem would be greatly appreciated. Oh and we already tried rebooting the machine, reconnecting the scanner, and cleaning the red glass on the barcode scanner with an alcohol swab. Thanks Melanie Bell Brighton District Library

    My LS4278 keeps disconnecting and reconnecting when on the cradle. When i remove from the cradle i have green lights but when it is connected via the cradle the device disconnects from the computer and back again. The computer makes the sounds of devices connecting and disconnecting (standard windows noises)

The Razzberry Tone is what I'm hearing. Acording to the trouble shooting I should return the unit for repair. Thanks for you help!

Look at your user's guide on Pg 14, here is a online link for it: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/barcodescannersdiscount/MetrologicVoyagerUG.pdf "Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off: If, upon power, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry tone, then the scanner has an experienced an electronic failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service center." Is the "Razzberry Tone" the low buzzing you refer to(?) Pg 24 has a "Trouble Shooting Guide" take a look at it too.

    Since you are getting only a single dot, I would guess that there is some mechanical-moving part(s) inside that do the line-scanning.

    FYI, There is a useful rule in troubleshooting, that the parts in a device that move - will be the most likely parts to fail.

How i can configurate ms9520 by rs232 which command can i use

Scanners are programmed by printing the barcode & then scanning with them. For this one, go to https://www.honeywellaidc.com/CatalogDocuments/00-02544%20Rev%20K%202-11.pdf
print it & scan the relevant barcode.

We are using a Metrologic MS9520 (keyboard wedge) with QuickBooks. It won't scan barcodes provided by Quickbooks, even though it's supposed to be compatible. We've downloaded about every driver, config,...

What I would first is to bring the barcode scanner back to factory defaults. To do this you will need the manual that came with the scanner, on the first page is a bar code that say "enter/exit configuration mode" scan that first and you will hear three beeps, then scan the bar code for "recall defaults" and rescan the bar code to "enter/exit configuration mode" then retry using your scanner, if this does not work bring up "notepad" on your computer and try to scan any bar code form any retail item. This should scan, if it does net then it could be a defective scanner. See page 2 on the manual link

Microsoft Metrologic MS9520 Voyager Barcode Scanner problem

If it is using the MX009 USB Cable it wont scan with the standard configuration. You will need extra configs such as enable Rs-232 Mode, Enable Xon/Xoff handshaking etc..
These can be found on the www.Metrologic.com website which will divert you to Honeywell website

Metrologic barcode scanner - laser is a dot not a line

This would be a fault with the scan engine. The dot is created when the mirror inside of the scan engine is not oscillating. The best solution is to have the device repaired, hopefully your scanner is still under warranty, or to purchase a replacement. /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt; margin:72.0pt 90.0pt 72.0pt 90.0pt; mso-header-margin:35.4pt; mso-footer-margin:35.4pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

Voyager 5929 doesn't work with Vista

The problem isn't your scanner or Vista, it's your adapter. Power requirements and speed of data require special adapters. One I always recommend is Scan Technology's part # STI-PS2-USB. I've tested it with all Metrologic scanners and it hasn't failed yet.

Incorrect Reading

Try experimenting with the different inter-scan code delays. You can find the programming barcodes in your manual.
