You should fully charge the LS4278 scanner battery before using the scanner for the first time. To charge the scanner battery, place the scanner in the cradle, ensuring that the metal contacts on the bottom of the scanner touch the contacts on the cradle. The battery begins charging when the LED indicators will start flashing green. A complete charge of a fully discharged battery can take up to three hours using external power and up to five hours using non-external cable power.
Open the Quick Start Guide fold-out sheet that came with the scanner. On side two under 'Helpful Bar Codes' you'll see a function called 'ADD AN ENTER KEY'. You'll need to scan a combination of three different barcodes and then your scanner will be configured to add an Enter key after scanned data.
