Just because it has a DB9 does not mean it is a direct connection. Many Bar code scanners have the DB9 connecting to a interface box and the interface box connects to the PC. If it is really a rs-232 scanner then you need to configure your serial port to the proper settings specified by symbol. But I am confident that this unit is missing the interface box.

How do you connect to a terminal with avocent dsr8035


Hi there,

You should have a DB9 to RJ45 converter in the box. This converter is used to change from DB9 serial to RJ45, which is the port on the DSR that is used to connect to the serial console.

Should you do not have such connector, call Avocent Tech Support, they will help you to get that converter.


The NullModem Cable might also be requiered

Symbol Model LS 9208, Bar code Scanner loaded factory setting, its scans(beeps) but does not display /show in the notepad.


If the scanner is connected through USB connection, the barcode should appear in the Notepad. If you use the Serial connection RS232, the Barcode data are showed than in Hyperterminal or other application, which is interpreting data from Serial Port.
Please scan the barcode from Product Guide according to your connection. And check the scanned data in an application - Notepad for Keyboard Wedge or USB, Hyperterminal for RS232.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

I have an LS4071 with an RL474 base. The cable has the PS2 Keyboard end. Scanner gets a good scan but no data goes into the computer. Testing with notepad open to receive the scan.


When I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector) I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!

If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

Meaning of Db and the use of Db9-male Cabl


The D is the shape of the connector when looked at it on it's side. The second letter (A,B,C,D,E) defines the amount of pins in the D connector. "DB9" is actually called DE by the standard and the E=9 pins. A=15, B=25, C=37, D=50, E=9. This standard was set in place by ITT Corp (Not the school) in 1952, and DE-9 connectors were used for tons of applications. (Machinery, Cars, etc). If you are only referring to the computer uses, the connector is widely known as RS-232 or a "Serial" port. These ports in computers were/are used for devices like early printers, scanners, networking hardware, or even as a method of connecting to the Internet at one point.

Rj45 male to db9 male cable for ups


If you have a BackUPS CS, you are probably either using it with the USB cable that is supplied or with the 940-0128A supplied by APC, which permits running the UPS in dumb mode. By building your own cable, you can now run the BackUPS CS models (and perhaps also the ES models) using smart signalling and have all the same information that is available as running it in USB mode.
The jack in the UPS may be easily use a 8 pin RJ45 connector. It is easy to construct the cable by cutting off one end of a standard RJ45-8 ethernet cable and wiring the other end (three wires) into a standard DB9F female serial port connector.
PC Signal PC pin UPS Pin UPS signal RxD 2 2 TxD TxD 3 8 RxD GND 5 7 Ground FG Shield 4 Frame Ground Though these UPSes are USB UPSes, APC supplies a serial cable (typically with a green DB9 F connector) that has 940-0128A stamped into one side of the plastic serial port connector.
Here is suggested scheme of original 940-0128A cable

What is the right rs232 cable to connect a Denon 3808CI reciever and a Phillips RFX9600 serial extender


OK LOOKING AT THE SPECS FOR THE EXTENDER YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS, WHEN USING THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS YOU NEED RS232 CODE STRINGS TO CONTROL THE DENON OR ANYOTHER DEVICE THROUGH THIS EXTENDER USING THE RS232 CONNECTIONS.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CONNECT AN I/R EMITTER FROM AN MINI JACK I/R CONTROL PORT ON THE BACK AND THE OTHER END TO THE I/R WINDOW ON THE DENON

Serial meaning 2.5mm stereo headphone looking jack to DB9 or "atari joystick" looking plug? I had one on my first Toshiba PDR-M1 camera but that was like 9 years ago. You can probably find the pinouts online for that cable, I believe it is a standardized cable.

The stereo plug is wired to the PC serial port as shown in the following diagram:
tip ring sleeve +---------------------------------+

/-------+-----+--------------+ |
| RxD | Gnd | TxD | 2.5 mm Stero Plug |
\-------+-----+--------------+ |

DB9*: pin 2 pin 5 pin 3 +---------------------------------+

DB9*: Optionally short together pin 4 (DTR) to pin 6 (DSR) and
pin 7 (RTS) to pin 8 (CTS)
The following table also describes the camera cable's wiring: Camera PC's
Plug DB9* Signal Name Direction
---- ---- ----------- ---------
- 1 Carrier detect (CD) input to PC
tip 2 Receive data (RxD) input to PC
sleeve 3 Transmit data (TxD) output from PC
- 4 \ Data terminal ready (DTR) output from PC
ring 5 | Signal ground (Gnd) -
- 6 / Data set ready (DSR) input to PC
- 7 \ Request to send (RTS) output from PC
- 8 / Clear to send (CTS) input to PC
- 9 Ring indicator (RI) input to PC
* Note that the cable's D-subminature DB9 RS-232 serial port connector is female. This connector also goes by the historically more correct name of "DE-9J".
