Motorola/Symbol MC55 Device Reset Instructions

Thank you for visiting the RedBeam Knowledge Base, your source for online support for RedBeam fixed asset tracking, check in check out, and inventory control software products.


There are two reset functions, warm boot and cold boot. A warm boot restarts the MC55 by closing all running programs. A cold boot also restarts the MC55, and also initializes some drivers. Data saved in flash memory or a memory card is not lost.

If the MC55 is not functioning properly, perform a warm boot first. If the MC55 still does not respond, perform a cold boot.

Performing a Warm Boot

Hold down the red Power button for approximately five seconds. As soon as the MC55 starts to boot (splash
screen displays) release the Power button.




Performing a Cold Boot

To perform a cold boot:

- On a numeric keypad, simultaneously press the red Power button and the '1' and '9' keys.
- On an alphanumeric keypad, simultaneously press the red Power button and the 'W' and 'C' keys.
- On an PIM keypad, simultaneously press the red Power button and the Talk (Green Phone) and Scroll Right keys.
