I've just unpacked my new MC70 and the barcode scanner doesn't come on. Why?

Download and install DataWedge V2.02.03 first.


How do I warm boot the MC-70?

Hold down the power key for at least 5 seconds and then let go.

How do I cold boot the MC70?


Hold down the 1 and 9 keys along with the Power key. Then let go. * Please note that this will erase programs on the device, reset the clock, region and wi-fi settings and you will have to reconfigure and reinstall your applications. Do this only as a last resort if a warm boot does not fix your problem.
