If you have activated Continuous Scan mode (the CS icon is appearing on your Reader screen) but the scanner doesn't seem to turn on... don't panic! The likely problems are:
- Obstructed Reader window
- Not enough light to register movement
Obstructed Reader window
The scanner is motion activated so if something is covering the window that the scanner shines out of, that will prevent it from being able to detect movement.
Not enough light to register movement
The scanner is motion activated, and as such, requires enough light to detect movement. Try increasing the light in the area then move something in front of the Reader (a chair, a horse, barcode, hand... whichever is easiest) and the scanner should light up.
