        Compatibility issues

        1.Can I use the scanner with Microsoft Word and/or Excel?

        The scanner typically works with MS Word and Excel.It emulates an external keyboard and "types" the data into text fields, similar to entering data through your keyboard. That is, if your keyboard works fine with MS Word and Excel,
        the scanner should also work fine. If there is no data appearing in Word or Excel when the scanner is connected, please contact Tera Customer Service for help.

        2. Can the scanner work with Windows 7, 8,10,11?

        Yes, the scanner is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 10, 11. It is normally recognized as a keyboard and the host computer will automatically install a generic driver provided by
        Microsoft Windows. If your computer doesn't detect any new device when the scanner is plugged in, it is likely that the USB port is not supplying enough voltage to the scanner. In this case,
        please try to connect the scanner to a USB 3.0 port.

        3. Can I use the scanner with a Mac?

        Yes, of course. There will be a keyboard introduction when you connect the scanner to a Mac for the first time. Follow the instructions to set up the scanner and it should work properly. If you miss the instructions or there is no introduction, please contact Tera customer service.

        4. Can I connect the scanner to my tablets or mobilephones via Bluetooth?

        Model 5100 is not Bluetooth-capable. Hence it is not able to connect any host devices via Bluetooth.

        5.Can I charge the scanner with a fast charging cableand adapter?

        No, the scanner should be charged with the original cable and 5V, 1A power supply or adapter. Do not charge the scanner with a fast charging cable or a fast charger. It may damage the battery of the scanner or even cause fire.

        Not working/scanning

        1.Why does my scanner struggle to read barcodes printedon reflective surface?

        Laser scanners are not a good deal for handling reflective barcodes due to the nature of laser. Adjusting the scan angle and distance may help the scanner pick up the barcodes.

        2. Why can't my scanner scan red barcodes?

        The scanner is not able to read barcodes with red bars and white background due to the nature of laser beam..

        3. Having problem in scanning some barcodes.

        Please contact Tera customer service with your model number and the barcode. Make sure that the barcode is clear enough to be printed as printing may degrade the symbol quality.

        4. Why is my scanner not scanning barcodes into my computer?

        Make sure that the scanner is connected. If you hear 3 fast beeps when scanning barcodes, it means that the scanner is not connected and needs to be paired with the receiver first. If you hear 1 beep when scanning barcodes, it indicates that the
        scanner is not recognized by your computer. In this case, we suggest you try another USB port.

        5. My scanner stopped working. How to troubleshoot it?

        (1) It beeps five times after each scan and nothing appears on the computer screen. The scanner is running out of battery.
        (2) It beeps once then followed by three beeps and nothing appears on the computer screen. The scanner is not connected.
        (3) The laser doesn't turn on when the button is pressed. There is an issue with the scanner's scan engine.


        1. How can I use this to automatically scan when I hold abarcode under it without having to press the button?

        Scan the "Continuous Scan Mode" from the user manual.
        Note: The stand must be ordered
        separately, if needed.

        2. How to use the scanner wirelessly?

        The scanner is factory-paired so you just need to power up the scanner, plug in the USB dongle and wait till the scanner
        beeps once. If your scanner fails to pair with the dongle automatically, please refer to the 2.4G Wireless Pairing section
        of the user manual for pairing details.

        3. Can I add an intercharacter delay on this scanner?

        No, this feature is not available on model 5100.

        4. How to adjust beeper volume?

        Please refer to the Beeper Volume section of the user manual. Scan the appropriate symbol to turn down/up the volume or mute the scanner.

        5. What do the beeps mean?

        1 Long Beep (Low Pitch to High Pitch)——Power up

        1 Long Beep (High Pitch to Low Pitch)——Power off

        1 Short Beep (Low Pitch)——Normal Code -Good Read/Pairing Succeeded

        1 Short Beep (Low Pitch to High Pitch)——Scanner in Storage Mode

        1 Short Beep (High Pitch to Low Pitch)——Configuration Code -Good Read

        3 Short Beeps (Low Pitch)——Transmission Failed/ No Memory Available

        5 Short Beeps (Low Pitch)——Battery Running Low
