Question about Symbol PDT 6846 Portable Terminal

1 Answer

QuickBasic compiled program run on Symbol PDT6100 or PDT6800?

I purchased off eBay a PDT6100 and need to program it so I can use it during stocktakes. It is a DR DOS based portable computer with a barcode scanner. Will I be able to use something like QuickBasic to compile a program on my PC, transfer it to the PDT, and then run the program to automate the scanning and count entry?

I have an LS4071 with an RL474 base. The cable has the PS2 Keyboard end. Scanner gets a good scan but no data goes into the computer. Testing with notepad open to receive the scan.


When I connected this scanner (purchased at a great discount through eBay) to my computer using the keyboard wedge (with a ps2 connection - the round connector) I received the error message that my computer could not recognize this external hardware. I went to barcodediscount.com and ordered the usb connector for this scanner as usb connections are usually recognized. The part # for this connector is STI85-0200R. It cost 72.55 with shipping, but I received the scanner at such a wonderful price that I thought I'd chance it and try it with a usb rather than a keyboard wedge connector.
The computer immediately recognized the usb connection, and the usb connector comes with a manual with codes to enable proper scanning, but still no luck getting the data into the computer. So I called Symbol's technical support department. The technician told me to remove the rubber "boot" at the bottom of the hand held scanner (not the scanner base) by pulling on the front of it (where the 2 little round circles are). It's tough to remove, but keep at it. Then gently remove the battery and unplug it, then plug it back in and reattach the base. He said this would reset the battery. Voila!!!! Sucess!!!!

If your scanner's keyboard wedge connection is recognized (a little popup window will say that it is a Symbol barcode scanner and that it is installed and ready to use), try taking the battery out and putting it back in to reset it. Hopefully this will also work for you. Symbol's technical support # is (800) 722-6234.

Symbol PDT 3100 with own made program


The terminals use DR Dos as operative system. Anything you want to download to them normally has to be built into a hex file and you will need a cradle, a null modem cable and winhex or the old dos command called sendhex.exe.

Is it a pdt 3100, 3140 or 3146?

I can send you the operative system files if the terminal is a 3140 or 3146 or you can do a search on the web for LWP and UPD.

Ls 9100


The first thing you need to do is set the LS9100 to know it's connected to a synapse cable. Scan the "set all defaults" barcode and then the "set synpase host" barcode. Once you have done this you can program the unit for the specific synpase cable your purchase, such as USB, PS/2, etc.
