I have a valid barcode,  when I keep scanning it many times in POS odoo8, I get unknown barcode warning , sometime the warning screen shows incomplete barcode number or no barcode. How to solve this issue?

not sure if I understood - but if your problem is that from time to time same, existing bacrode is not recognized (it is recognized in most cases, only from time to time not), then I would say it is time to change barcode scanner; also what I know - but never seend this case in real - some scanners require quite high power provided via usb port, and usb not always is capable to do so; in such a cases scanner behaves in unexpected way; maybe if you could use usb hub with external power it would solve problem?




Thanks Tomasz, but when I scan the barcode to a txt file, the barcode number is complete without any missing number , this only happen when I use odoo in firefox/chrome. Could there be a bug in the program?
