Step 1 – Make sure the scanner is sitting in cradle correctly and the power supply is connected.
Step 2 – Press one of the two little black “charge buttons” on either side of the white disk on the cradle.
Step 3 – The charging LED should come on.
Step 4 – Once the batteries are completely charged, the red “Charging LED” will go off and the “Charge complete” LED will come on.
If things go wrong:
Some people have described this as a ‘cricket sound’.
The simple answer is that the scanner has successfully scanned the barcode, but for some reason has been unable to successfully send the barcode to the PC. This problem can be at either the cradle or scanner end.
If all else fails, please contact our Service Department – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note – we do not recommend that you perform this procedure unless advised to by our service department.
Please note that this procedure must only be performed if the serial numbers on the scanner and cradle are matching, and only if you have tried all other steps above in trying to get the scanner to pair with the cradle.
Disconnect both the USB cable from the PC and the Power Supply from the cradle. Is there a blue or red light on the cradle? If so, you haven’t disconnected either the USB cable or the power supply. Please note that if you do not disconnect both, the cradle will not reset correctly.
If there is no light showing on the cradle, you can reconnect the power supply to power up cradle again.
Open the battery compartment (you will need a small Philips head screw driver) and remove the battery on right side of the battery compartment. Wait ten seconds or more, then replace the battery and close the battery compartment again.
We recommend removing only the right side battery, because the battery on the left has battery detection pins under it. If you remove the left battery, you must take great care not to damage these battery detecting pins when replacing the battery. It’s a lot safer to remove only the battery on the right!
The green LED/light on top of the scanner indicates the current status of the scanner.
None – the scanner is off.
Flashing green – the scanner is trying to pair with the cradle.
Constant green – the scanner is paired with the cradle.
For more info on the scanner’s indicator lights, please see your SlimScan BT manual.
If the cradle has no power, or the scanner is not sitting in cradle and is left unused for more than 20 minutes, it will automatically power off to save battery life.
To turn the scanner on again, either put the scanner into the cradle, or press the red scanning trigger on scanner.
Don’t be alarmed – it’s meant to do this! The SlimScan BT has a built-in locating feature, to help you find your scanner if you misplace it.
When the scanner is not in its cradle, press one of the (charging) buttons on the cradle – the scanner will beep three times to help you locate it.
Please note that this feature will only work if the scanner is paired with the cradle. This is a good quick test to perform to determine if scanner and cradle are paired.
Unfortunately not – this scanner required specific batteries to work correctly and re-charge. Please contact ASP or your supplier.
