How do I get an "Enter" key at the end of the data? See the Quick Start Guide.

Why can't I read some barcodes no matter how much I try? There are two answers to this question. Firstly, is the barcode symbology you are trying to read enabled, or the correct length options set.

Secondly, some very high density barcodes can't be read by the LS-2208. You might have to go for the next model up - the LS4208 which has a wider reading range.

Please note that the LS2208 cannot read 2D barcodes.
