The non-volatile Flash File Store. Applications and data in the Flash
File Store will persist through a clean boot or if you reflash the
operating system image.
• The optional microSD card. Depending on available disk space, you
may want to consider installing your application files on the microSD
card. Using a card creates the Storage Card folder on the computer.
Files copied to any of these locations are safe when you cold boot the
computer if the Autouser.dat file has been edited correctly. All .cab files
in each CABFILES folder are automatically extracted after a cold boot.

Problems Reading Bar Codes (continued)
60
Problem
Possible Solution
The scanner or imager cannot
read the bar code.
Try these possible solutions:
The scanner or imager cannot
read the bar code quickly, or the
scanning beam seems to be
faint or obscured.
The scanner or imager window may be
dirty. Clean the window with a solution
of mild soap and water. Wipe dry. Do
not allow abrasive material to touch the
window.
You read a valid bar code label
to enter data for your
application. The data decoded
by the scan module does not
match the data encoded in the
bar code label.
The computer may have decoded the
bar code label in another symbology.
Scan the bar code label again. Make
sure you scan the entire label.
The input device attached to the
computer does not work well or
read bar code labels very
quickly.
Set the Scanner Model command to
the specific attached input device.
Enable only the bar code symbologies
being used.
• Position the scanner beam so that it
crosses the entire bar code label in
one pass. Try to vary the scanning
angle.
• Check the quality of the bar code
label. Scan a bar code label that you
know scans properly. Compare the
quality of the two bar code labels.
You may need to replace the label
that you cannot scan.
• Make sure the bar code symbology
is enabled and configured correctly.
Start Intermec Settings and go to
Data Collection > Symbologies for
the scanning device (scanner, virtual
wedge) to check and enable
symbologies.
• Make sure the computer application
is expecting input from a bar code.
You may need to type this
information instead.
• The scanner may not be turned on or
the scanner may be unable to scan
a specific bar code. Run the
ScanDiagnostic application.

How to Restart the Computer
If the computer or an application locks up, or if the computer does not
respond when you press the Power button, you may need to restart the
computer.
The computer uses the configuration currently saved in flash memory
during the boot process. Try these methods, in order, to restart the
computer:
•
•
Reboot: Restarts the computer and goes through the initialization
process.
Reset: Preserves configuration and network settings, but does not
necessarily save cached disk data, which may result in data loss.
Reboot the Computer
You may need to restart the computer to correct conditions where an
application stops responding to the system.
•
Press the Power button and select Reboot from the menu.
Reset the Computer
If the computer completely stops responding, you may need to reset the
computer. Because resetting may result in data loss, use this method only
if all other recovery methods have failed.
•
Press the Reset button on the top of the computer. When the reset is
complete, the Home screen appears.
Clean the Computer
Clean the computer as often as needed. Use one of these recommended
cleaning agents: Acetic acid (10% in water), Ethyl alcohol (10% in water),
mild soap solutions, or 5% to no more than 10% bleach or sodium
hypochlorite with water.
1 Press the Power button to suspend the computer.
2 Dip a clean cloth towel in the cleaning agent and wring out the excess.
3 Wipe the touch screen. Do not allow any abrasive material to touch
the surface.
4 Wipe off the exterior of the computer.
5 Wipe dry.
