I assume you mounted new batteries or charged it now.
The most common is contrast is adjusted by mistake by user.
But display could fade if battery have bad status when its turned on and its turned off due to bad batteries. This happen very seldom.
Adjust contrast by press the FN/ALPHA-key and simultaneously press UP or DOWN keys. This adjust contrast back!

If you using Forge, you could chose between comma or dot for decimal inputs in the latest versions of Forge.
Earlier just a dot were available.

I have a Cipherlab scanner 8001, when i connect it to a linux computer, it doesnt download it gives me a Time out error, but when i connect a Cipher scanner 711 to the same COM port it works. Please advice...

OK,you indicated COM1 serial port is working on the a Cipher scanner 711.
Please check the communication setting on the Cipher scanner 711.
The most popular setting are
9600 bps 8 bits N for no parity check and 1 for check bit.
Short for as

Check the setting on the Cipher scanner 711 communication speed and make set the Cipherlab scanner 8001 to the same rate.
MAKE SURE YOU RE-BOOT the Cipherlab scanner 8001 before re-try.

I have got scanner 1000 but cannot scan the barcodes i have got. like TA010304, when i scanned it, other weird stuff would appear like 06^OX... anyone can help me? Thanks.

Hi there, you may check the settings of your scanner software, go to start>programs and check the scan software utility and from there check the settings of the scanning page/are so that it would see those barcodes you need.. or may lighten the scan settings as well.

Extra zero

The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:

Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.

1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.

Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.

Hope this helps:)

Can't figure out scanner

with most barcode readers you need to configure it before you can use it, this is usually done via a barcode book whiich configures everything that the gun can do....everything from how it communicates with the pc, to the types of barcodes it can scan
