Barcode scanner makes problems in POS

on 7/11/13, 9:13 AM 2,360 views

The barcode reader I own enters new line at the end of the barcode (code 13) and if the mouse pointer is above a button it will press it before adding the product. For example I put with the mouse product 1 and then if I scan product 2 I end up with 2 x product 1 and 1x product 2 (the mouse is still over product 1). To avoid I have to make sure that the mouse pointer is on the empty area before scanning a product. This doens't happen if I use barcode scanner which doesn´t put new line at the end.

How can I fix that?

Hello Branimir.

If you can locate the manual for your barcode scanner there is usually an option to change of disable the line-break after scanning. The barcode scanner's settings can be accessed by scanning special settings barcodes in the instruction manual.

Hope this helps.
