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!

Hi, there are two possibilities, One the main battery has gone bad, this is common, the only way to tell is to replace it. Two, on the main board, there is sometimes a small battery, this battery can sometimes leak, etc, or have gone bad. Replacement, if there is one, usually fixes it.

    I had the same problem with my cipher lab 8000 with the screen faded and hard to read. First make sure you have good batteries 2 AAA in your scanner. Turn the power on, hold down the FN (function key)/ alpha key located in the bottom left of the key pad , while holding the function key press the up/down arrow for desired contrast, this will adjust the text brightness.

OK,you indicated COM1 serial port is working on the a Cipher scanner 711.
Please check the communication setting on the Cipher scanner 711.

Short for as

MAKE SURE YOU RE-BOOT the Cipherlab scanner 8001 before re-try.

Please keep me up to date on the fix via email.
