Cause

The F734 Portable Barcode Reader's battery has expired or the RecFind program is not installed.

Solution

The RecFind software for the F734 needs to be installed. This is done by completing the following steps:

  1. Ensure that the reader is connected correctly. This means that one end of the cable is connected to the port marked HOST on the cradle (this may be labelled "DON'T USE"), the other end must be connected to the COM1 serial port on the PC.

    Note: If you have an existing program installed, reset the Barcode Reader by inserting a straightened paper clip into the small hole located next to the Scan button and press the Scan button. It will beep several times.

    When prompted with the following screen, push the up arrow key to erase the program.
