Scanner Messages

1. My scanner says ''Please check your internet connection''?

There are two possible reasons for this message.

  1. Your mobile data coverage has been lost. Turn your scanner off then on to reset this connection.
  2. Your internet connection has dropped out. Try rebooting your router to reset your router's internet access. See 'How do I connect my scanner to Wi-Fi' if there is still no connection.


2. Why is my scanner saying “Sorry, this is not an activation code”?

If you see this message, you need to activate your scanner. Then scan the customer code.

Find the activation code in ‘Places’. Click on a specific location and scan the code or type in the number.

Your scanner will say ‘Checking activation code’ whilst it loads. Press ‘Activate’ and you are done. Now scan the customer code and you are good to start scanning.
