20 Most Recent Symbol PDT 6846 Portable Terminal Questions & Answers

To configure the terminal Ctrl-C to drop you to a DOS prompt then type cfg11 this will then take you a configuration screen where you can enter wireless and IP settings.

I can’t say about what program you are trying to load. If you get the system to associate then the next step is to configure the host settings.

FUNC-CTL-R at the Connect to Host screen

Password: system

Then you can add host settings.

It’s a shame we fix PDT6846's all the time and if we replace the board reconfigure them for the customer.

Hi there,
This could happen if:
  • PDT6846 is operating with battery at less than nominal charge level (lower than normal power output).
  • Possible defective radio card.
    The PDT6846 configuration is not the issue here, as the unit will associate once within range of the access point. If the PDT6846 fails to connect when roaming out of the primary access point range, and relocates to an adjoining access point's cell, this problem is indicative of either an internally defective RF card or simply a weak signal output from the PDT6846 due in large part to a weak battery.

    1. Verify PDT6846 is operating with a fully charged battery.
    1. Warm boot PDT6846 to reestablish radio association.

    If problem persists, the PDT6846 requires repair attention specific to the internal radio card.

You cannot access C: Drive as this is the eprom of the device and is not accessible. If it shouws the D: prompt it is because it has no applications loaded. Let me know exactly what do you want to do and i will help you.

It can only be one of two things.

Less likely but also will cost you nothing, try and reload LWP and UPD but don't forget to use the comman FLSHFMT on both E drive and D drive first.

More likely is that the radio card of the terminal is busted or might have become lose as the internal radio connector was always a bit flakey on this device. You can try removing the 6 screws on the plastic cover, open it and unplug and plug again the radio card.
