SCANNER OPERATION
Audible Indicators
When the MS3580 is in operation, it provides audible feedback to indicate the
status of the scanner. Eight settings are available for the tone of the beep
(normal, 6 alternate tones and no tone). For instructions on how to change the
tone of the beeper, refer to the MetroSelect Configuration Guide (00-02407).
One Beep
When the scanner first receives power the white LED will flash, the blue LED
will turn on and the scanner will beep once (the white LED will remain on for
the duration of the beep). The scanner is now ready to scan.
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the white LED will flash and
the scanner will emit a beep (if configured to do so). If the scanner does not
beep once and the white light does not flash, then the bar code has not been
successfully read.
Razzberry Tone
This is a failure indicator. Refer to Failure Mode Indicators on page 21.
Three Beeps - during operation
When placing the scanner in configuration mode, the white LED will flash
while the scanner simultaneously beeps three times. The white and blue
LEDs will continue to flash until the unit exits configuration mode. Upon exiting
configuration mode, the scanner will beep three times and the white LED will
stop flashing.
When configured, 3 beeps can also indicate a communications timeout during
normal scanning mode.
When using one-code-programming, the scanner will beep three times: the
current selected tone, followed by a short pause, a high tone and a low tone.
This tells the user that the single configuration bar code has successfully
configured the scanner.
Three Beeps - on power up
This is a failure indicator. Refer to Failure Mode Indicators on page 21.
19
SCANNER OPERATION
Visual Indicators
The QuantumT is equipped with a blue and white LED that indicates the
scanner’s state and the status of the current scan when the unit is in operation.
Figure 12. Speaker Location and LED Location
No LEDs
The LEDs will not be illuminated if the scanner is not receiving power from the
host or transformer. They are also not illuminated when the laser is turned off
for any reason.
Steady Blue
When the laser is active, the blue LED is illuminated. The blue LED will remain
illuminated until the laser is deactivated.
Steady Blue and Single White Flash
When the scanner successfully reads a bar code, the white LED will flash and
the scanner will beep once. If the white LED does not flash or the scanner
does not beep once, then the bar code has not been successfully read.
Steady White and Blue
After a successful scan, the scanner transmits the data to the host device.
Some communication modes require that the host inform the scanner when
data is ready to be received. If the host is not ready to accept the information,
the scanner’s white LED will remain on until the data can be transmitted.
Alternating Blue and White Flashes
This indicates the scanner is in program mode. A razzberry tone indicates that
an invalid bar code has been scanned in this mode.
Steady White, Blue Off
This indicates the scanner may be waiting for communication from the host.
20
SCANNER OPERATION
Failure Mode Indicators
Flashing Blue and One Razzberry Tone
This indicates that the scanner has experienced a laser subsystem failure.
Return the unit to an authorized service center for repair.
Flashing Blue and White and Two Razzberry Tones
This indicates that the scanner has experienced a motor failure. Return the unit
to an authorized service center for repair.
Continuous Razzberry Tone with Both LEDs Off
If, upon power up, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry tone, then the
scanner has an electronic failure. Return the unit to an authorized service
center for repair.
Three Beeps - On Power Up
If the scanner beeps 3 times on power up, then the nonvolatile memory that
holds the scanner configuration has failed. Return the unit to an authorized
service center for repair.

UPGRADING THE FLASH ROM FIRMWARE
The MetroSet2 program is a functional component of Metrologic’s new line of
Flash- based scanners. This program allows the user of a Metrologic scanner to
quickly upgrade to a new or custom version of firmware. It requires the use of a
personal computer running Windows 95 or greater and the use of a serial port.
The user merely connects the scanner to a serial port on the PC, launches the
MetroSet2 program, and blasts off to new software upgrades.
Each MS3580, regardless of the version number or communication protocol, can
be upgraded. All RS232 (-41); keyboard wedge (-47); light pen (-41); OCIA (-9);
IBM 468X/469X (-11); low speed HID/POS USB (-38); integrated full speed USB
(-40); and RS232 TTL, Laser Emulation (-104) units can be upgraded. To
upgrade all units, a power supply and a PowerLink cable (MLPN 54-54014) are
required.
RS232 units can be upgraded using the standard PowerLink cable
(MLPN 53-53xxx-3 or 54-54xxx-3).
The program guides the user with its simplistic one click approach. The user
must first select the file. Once the file is selected and verified, the scanner is
ready to be upgraded. Press the “Flash Scanner” button to upgrade the scanner.
The unit will go into a “flash mode” – both the blue and white LEDs will be on.
The user can follow the progress of the upgrade by watching the screen for
details. When the upgrade is complete, the scanner will respond with its normal
one beep on power up. If two beeps occur, the scanner did not upgrade
properly. Contact a Metrologic service representative for additional assistance.
MetroSet2 incorporates all functions that were previously in Meteor.
