How to Perform a Warm or Cold Boot on your Motorola MC9190

There are two reset functions on your Motorola MC9190, warm boot and cold boot.

  • A warm boot restarts the Motorola MC9190 and closes all running programs.
  • A cold boot also restarts the MC9190 and closes all running programs but also installs some drivers.

Warm Boot

Press and hold the red power button for about 5 seconds. The scanner will reset. This does not remove programs, erase settings, reset the clock or require a screen recalibration. Try this first!

Cold Boot

A cold boot restarts the Motorola MC9190. The operating system and all applications are restarted. File storage is preserved.Only perform a cold boot if a warm boot does not solve the problem.

  1. Press the red Power button. The PowerKey Action window appears.
  2. Tap Safe Battery Swap. The Indicator LED Bar lights red.
  3. Press the primary battery release on the MC9190 to partially eject the battery from the Motorola MC9190.
  4. While the battery is partially released, simultaneously press and release the trigger and the Power button.
  5. Push the battery to fully re-insert it in the MC9190. One audible click can be heard as the battery is fully inserted.
  6. The Motorola MC9190 initializes.

Note: You will need to recalibrate the screen.
