    Reading is not possible. Confirm that the barcode is readable (without damage,etc.).Confirm the range for reading.Be sure the reader is programmed to read the type ofbarcode you are reading.The distance from the reader to the barcode is impor-tant. As a rule of thumb, a farther distance should beused for a larger symbol to allow the raster pattern tocover the symbol. In addition, a closer distance shouldbe used for a thinner symbol.Return the Barcode reader to the default setting.

    If the reading window is dirty, gently wipe the reading window with a cloth or a cotton swabmoistened with water.Do not allow materials that can easily scratch the reading window to touch the window, suchas sandpaper or metal object. In addition, do not directly apply a liquid such as water, deter-gent, or alcohol, on the surface of the window.For parts other than the reading window, please read Maintenance in the Personal Com-puter Operating Instructions.

    Troubleshooting

    Cleaning the Reading Window

    The reader can still read a barcode even if the barcode is not in the center of the red LEDlight. However, if a part of the barcode lies slightly outside the LED light, the barcodecannot be read. Make sure the entire barcode is inside the LED light.
