We have tested it with the programming sheets for the LS2208 and the following instructions will work to program it.
To program the scanner to accept both an STX prefix and Carriage Return suffix
1) Scan the Scan options Barcode
2) Scan the Prefix / Data / Suffix Barcode and then scan the Enter Barcode
3) Scan the STX Prefix barcode based on ASCII Value 1002
4) Now Scan the Barcodes in the order of 1002
Use this alternate programming method to add STX Prefix, Carriage Return Suffix, and remove the Check Digit.
To test that the STX Prefix (Ctrl+B) has been programmed successfully, Drop to a command prompt and scan a barcode (NOT one of the ones from the programming sheets)
You should see something like this:
What you are looking for is that the scanner scanned a ^B before the barcode and it translates to a little smiley face character on the next line. If this is what you see, you have correctly programmed the barcode scanner.
If you are running Windows 10 and still do not get the ^B character, you will need to run the command prompt as an administrator on the local workstation, and on the remote session, then check the properties of the command prompt.
