Setting Up the Scanner
Follow the steps below to set up the scanner.
1.
Connect the interface cable to the bottom of the scanner.
Figure 1-1 Connecting/Disconnecting the Cable
2.
Connect the other end of the interface cable to a USB connector on the host device.
Figure 1-2 USB Interface Connection
3.
Aim the scanner at the barcode and press the trigger.
Figure 1-3 Aiming and Scanning
ENWW
1
4.
Ensure that the scan line crosses every bar and space of the barcode.
Figure 1-4 Correct and Incorrect Scans
5.
2
Do not hold the scanner directly over the barcode. Laser light reflecting directly back into the
scanner from the barcode is known as specular reflection. This specular reflection can make
decoding difficult. You can tilt the scanner up to 65° forward or back and achieve a successful
decode.

Scanning Modes
The scanner can operate in one of several scanning modes as described below.
Trigger Single Mode
When the trigger is pulled, scanning is activated until one of the following occurs:
●
a programmable duration has elapsed
●
a label has been read
●
the trigger is released
This mode is associated with typical handheld reader operation: when the trigger is pulled, scanning
starts and the product scans until the trigger is released, or a label is read, or the maximum
programmable duration has elapsed.
NOTE: See the Programming Guide (PG) for additional programmable features. In this case:
Scanning Active Time.
ENWW

Figure 2-2 Trigger Single Mode
Trigger Hold Multiple Mode
When the trigger is pulled, scanning starts and the product scans until the trigger is released or a
programmable duration has elapsed. Reading a label does not disable scanning. Double Read
Timeout prevents undesired multiple reads while in this mode.
NOTE: See the Programming Guide (PG) for additional programmable features. In this case:
Scanning Active Time.
Double Read Timeout is also programmed using the PG.
Figure 2-3 Trigger Hold Multiple Mode
Trigger Pulse Multiple Mode
When the trigger is pulled and released, scanning is activated until programmable duration has
elapsed or the trigger has been pulled again to transition to another state. Double Read Timeout
prevents undesired multiple reads while in this mode.
NOTE: See the Programming Guide (PG) for additional programmable features. In this case:
Scanning Active Time.
Double Read Timeout is also programmed using the PG.
Figure 2-4 Trigger Pulse Multiple Mode
Flashing Mode
The reader flashes on and off regardless of the trigger status.
NOTE: This is controlled by Flash On Time and Flash Off Time. Use the PG to program these
options.

Chapter 2 Using the Scanner
ENWW
Figure 2-5 Flashing Mode
Always On
No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is continually on. If the trigger is pulled, the
reader acts as if it is in Trigger Single Mode. Double Read Timeout prevents undesired multiple reads
while in this mode.
NOTE:
Double Read Timeout is programmed using the PG.
Figure 2-6 Always On
Stand Mode
No trigger pull is required to read a barcode. Scanning is turned on automatically when an item is
placed in reader’s field of view. If the trigger is pulled, the reader acts as if it in Trigger Single mode.
Double Read Timeout prevents undesired multiple reads while in this mode.
NOTE:
Double Read Timeout is programmed using the PG.
Figure 2-7 Stand Mode
Trigger Object Sense
This mode is similar to Stand Mode, except that a trigger pull is required to activate the decoder.

Programming Barcodes
For your convenience, this guide includes the programming barcodes required to configure the
scanner for use with different interface (terminal/host) types.
Refer to the Programming Guide (PG) at http://www.hp.com/support for more complete information
about programming and configurable features.
Resetting the Product Configuration to Defaults
If you aren't sure what programming options are in your scanner, or you've changed some options
and want to restore the Custom Default Configuration that may have been saved in the scanner, scan
the Restore Custom Default Configuration barcode below. This will restore the custom configuration
for the currently active interface.
Figure 2-9 Restore Custom Default Configuration
USB Interface
The scanner attaches directly to a USB host, or a powered USB hub, and is powered by it. No
additional power supply is required. When using a USB interface, the scanner auto-detects the USB
and defaults to the HID keyboard interface.

LED and Beeper Indications
The scanner’s beeper sounds and its LED illuminates to indicate various functions or errors on the
reader. A “Green Spot” also lights to indicate a good read. The tables below list these indications.
One exception to the behaviors listed in the tables is that the reader’s functions are programmable,
and may or may not be turned on. For example, certain indications, such as the power-up beep can
be disabled using programming barcode labels. Refer to the PG for a more detailed list.
ENWW
Indication
LED
Beeper
Power-up
LED flashes/blinks on power-up, however, this
may be too rapid to view. With a USB interface,
the LED blinks until enumeration with the host
is completed.
Scanner beeps four times at highest frequency
and volume upon power-up.
Good Read
LED behavior for this indication is configurable
using the PG.
One beep at current frequency, volume, mono/
bi-tonal setting and duration upon a successful
label scan.
ROM Failure
200ms on / 200ms off
Scanner sounds one error beep at highest
volume for 200 mS.
Limited Scanning Label

Not Applicable
Scanner 'chirps' six times at the highest
frequency and current volume.

Troubleshooting
Solving Common Problems
The following table lists possible problems, causes, and recommended solutions.
Problem
Possible Cause
Possible Solution
Nothing happens when the scan button
is pulled.
No power to the scanner.
Check system power. Ensure power
supply is connected.
Interface or power cables are loose.
Ensure all cable connections are
secure.
Scanner not programmed for correct
barcode type.
Ensure scanner is programmed to read
the type of barcode scanned. Refer to
the Programming Guide (PG) for more
information.
Barcode label is unreadable.
Check the label to ensure it is not
defaced. Try scanning another barcode
type.
Distance between scanner and barcode
is incorrect.
Move scanner closer to or further from
the barcode.
Barcode reading ability has degraded.
Scan Window has become scratched or
contaminated with dust.
Replace window as instructed in this
guide.
Barcode is decoded but not transmitted
to the host.
Scanner not programmed for the
correct host type.
Scan the appropriate host type
barcode. Refer to the Programming
Guide (PG) for more information.
LED comes on, but barcode does not
decode.
NOTE:
For detailed troubleshooting, refer to the Programming Guide (PG).
