I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF THESE HANDHELD SCANNERS ONLINE. THEY ARE PRE PROGRAMMED TO DO INVENTORY FOR SOME COMPANY, SO MANY RECRICTIONS ARE THERE. I BASICALLY CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH THEM. i'VE READ THAT THERE ARE 3 FILES NEEDED TO RESTORE THEM BACK TO THEIR FACTORY CONDITION. DOES ANYONE HAVE THESE THREE FILES AND TELL ME HOW TO INSTALL THEM. i AM NEW, SO I GUESS I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS WITH PAYPAL SOMEHOW?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You'll probably have to contact the manufacturer to get the files and information that you need to do a factory reset.

Hello, cooter1977!

Have you tried to do a cold boot?

PLEASE NOTE: A cold boot also restarts the mobile computer, but erases all stored records and entries from RAM. In addition it returns formats, preferences and other settings to the factory default settings.

(Instructions taken from this site)

Step 1

Simultaneously press and then release the 1, 9 and Power keys. Do not hold down any other keys or buttons. As the mobile computer initializes, the Symbol splash window appears for about a minute.

Step 2

Calibrate the touch screen.

To perform a cold boot on 20-key keypad configurations:

Step 1

Simultaneously press and then release the 1 and 9, MENU and FUNC keys. Do not hold down any other keys or buttons. As the mobile computer initializes, the Symbol splash window, appears for about a minute.

Step 2

Calibrate the touch screen.

The current software downloads require an active support agreement with Motorola/Zebra and can be found here

However I am indebted to my colleague Winston who pointed me at the original downloads which are freely available from the same site and apply to the entire MC30XX range.
