When the scanner first receives power, the blue LED will turn on; the
scanner will simultaneously emit a beep and flash the white LED.
Plugging the scanner into the serial port of the PC does not guarantee
that scanned information will appear at the PC. A software driver and
correct configuration setting are also required for proper
communication to occur.
The MS3580-104 leaves the factory with the Laser Emulation
enabled. If the Recall Defaults bar code is scanned while
reconfiguring the scanner, laser emulation will no longer be enabled.
Scan the Laser Emulation barcode in Section J: Laser Emulation of
the MetroSelect Configuration Guide to re-enable the laser emulation
interface. This feature is only supported for MS3580-104 models.
