FAQ – Saveo Scan

How do I turn on my Saveo Scan?

On the bottom of the Saveo Scan you will find a small white recessed button. Use a pen or paperclip to push the button down fully. You will hear a sound notification. This will power on the Saveo Scan.

How long will my Saveo Scan battery last?

The scanner battery will scan 13,000 EAN 13 barcodes on a full charge. The scanner does not use the battery of the phone/smart device or vice-versa.

I attached my device to the Saveo Scan using the USB cable but it is not receiving data?

Firstly, make sure the scanner is on. Even when the scanner is off it will still charge and appear as connected to your device.

Ensure your device is USB OTG compatible. Most recent Android based devices now include USB OTG as standard. Please check the manufacturers literature to ensure your device has this feature.

If you are connecting over Bluetooth you will first need to pair your device to the scanner. The instructions for pairing can be found in the manual that accompanied the device or in our downloads section. Please ensure that you use the appropriate manual for the appropriate device.

Why is my device beeping at regular intervals?

Your battery is low. Please charge the scanner. To check the battery status of the scanner scan the ‘Battery Information’ barcode in the manual.

When I drop my Saveo Scan into the cradle there is no “beep” to confirm charging has begun.

If the charger is in standby mode the audio is off. The charger will charge as normal. If you want the assurance of hearing the audible beep to acknowledge charging please ensure the scanner is not in standby mode by pressing the trigger to simulate scanning a barcode.

Why is the cradle charging the scanner but not my device?

The scanner will charge in the cradle whether the device is in O (Operating mode) or C (Charging mode). The scanner will make an audible confirmation that it is charging. The phones/smart devices will have various symbols on the display of the phone to verify charging is in progress.

Can I access the keyboard when connected to Saveo Scan on an Android device?

Yes. Because Saveo Scan connects to your device as an external keyboard, the onscreen keyboard becomes disabled. Click here for a guide on how to enable the onscreen keyboard on Android devices.

My device is connected to the scanner but it’s not receiving any data?

Check that scanner is not in Data Storage Mode. When the scanner is in Data Storage Mode, data is saved directly to the scanner’s internal memory. See manual for instructions on Operating modes.
