Question about PSC Magellan 1000i Barcode Scanner - P/N MG10-2010-101-106 Barcode Scanner

1 Answer

The red light on the scanner seems to be on most of the time

Whether we are scanning or not the red lights stay on. If we position the scanner just right it will go off for awhile. If we place a paper sack about 8 inches in front of scanner the light goes out. It doesn't matter where we have the scanner. We have 2 registers and the other scanner doesn't do this.

If you are using magellan 1000i with no button, then it must be your scanner broken. But If you use a button trigger try to push it a while. The Button is on top of the scanner,with a white / light green color.

Honeywell 2020-5 suddenly stopped scanning. The lights are on the charger base, but the scanner seems dead.

I guess there is a problem with the base station. Let me tell my story:
I got a 4820 scanner with 2020 base. All worked fine till I experimented with scanning images. After a few images (which I cannot retrieve/receive properly due to lack of software) the scanner seems dead. From time to time a short buzz sounds when triggered, but no light or else.
So I bought another 4820, a slightly different model. Seems to work fine but has to be paired with the base to get the data. Now after pairing this scanner shows the same issues as my first and refuses to scan.
I installed QiuckView and HSM-USB-Serial-Driver on a virtual machine at my MAC to flash firmware to base and scanners. But the base device does not show up in the program (althought it is shown in the USB device table). Maybe I can try on a native WindowsPC ...

Beeping and showing red light but no transmission of data

First, you need to find whether the problem is with the scanner or not .To do this you are supposed to change the scanner and if the problem continue try to reconfigure your scanner

If the kit number : MK5145-71a48 that you referenced above is correct, your scanner is single ended keyboard wedge, not usb. You would need to order the correct cable : MX009-3ma7c from Honeywell to connect via usb.

Handset green light is flashing on and off and there is no red light. When I try to scan a bar code with the handset it does not scan. How do I replace the battery in the handset?

Hi, there are detailed instructions for replacing the battery in the LS4278 Product Reference Guide on page 27 of 414.

Use a philips screwdriver and turn the screw in the base of the scanner counter clockwise to remove the latch at the bottom of the scanner.
Turn the scanner upright to slide the battery out.
Disconnect the battery clip.
Reattach the battery clip.
Make sure the new battery is securely in well of scanner.
Attach and close latch.
Use philips screwdriver to press down gently and turn screw clockwise to lock latch in place.

Push and hold down the big button for a while until it beeps. This scanner has a feature to disable the confirm beep that gets activated if you hold down the scan button too long!

Stopped scanning

I seldom do this ...but I will comment on the Zebex scanner. This is ...errr ... not the best choice for future scanner needs. I will never forget commercial Zebex experience. They should have stuck to anti freeze (just kidding).

However if it did work and now doesn't there is one problem that is so obvious no one thinks of it ... check the clear plastic protector on teh front and see if it need cleaned. Greasy environments usually fog it over time.

I have the Zebex default codes somewhere in the shop ... but you can replace that scanner with a nice PSC, Mot, or Intermec for about 120.00 why not do that?

Red Beam stuck on

You sound like a pretty experienced user. You've likely already tried pulling the battery for an hour replacing the battery, and then defaulting.

If you haven't try it. Symbol gear is excellent, but even BMW'a break occasionally. Our shop is one of many that can effect a hardware repair.

Scanner isn't scanning all the time

It doesn't sound like a power issue. Most likely it either needs cleaned, or it needs the laser recalibrated or replaced. Try cleaning the glass for starters, and then hold the scanner about two inches from a white piece of paper. You should get a solid, bright red line. If the line is distorted you need to recalibrate the laser. If it's dim, the laser unit is going out. The laser can be replaced, but I don't know if it's one of those things where the part plus labor costs more than replacing the scanner.
