The 8690i can pair with host Bluetooth devices such as personal computers, laptops, and tablets. In this mode, the host will continually attempt to connect with the scanner. If the scanner and the host become disconnected, the host will manage the reconnection.

  1. Scan the Host Reconnect Mode bar code, below.
  2. Set your host device so it searches for other Bluetooth devices. (Refer to your host device’s User’s Guide for pairing instructions.)
  3. Once your host device has located the scanner, select the 8690i scanner name from the list displayed.

Note: Refer to the 8690i User’s Guide if your host device displays a PIN.
The Bluetooth symbol appears in the scanner window when the scanner pairs with a host.

The Bluetooth symbol appears in the user window when the 8690i pairs with a host.

Reset Custom Defaults

If you want the custom default settings restored to your 8690i, scan the Activate Custom Defaults bar code below. This is the recommended default bar code for most users. It resets the 8690i to the custom default settings. If there are no custom defaults, it resets the 8690i to the factory default settings (Blue-tooth HID Keyboard Emulation). Any settings that have not been specified through the custom defaults are defaulted to the fac-tory default settings.

Activate Custom Defaults
Note: Scanning the Defaults bar code also causes both the 8690i and the host to perform a reset and become unlinked. You must relink (pair) the 8690i to the host.

Replace the Battery
