Re: Laser issue

Sounds like the mirror actuator is broken.... (this is a small motor which moves the mirror on the laser assembly.) The laser unit needs replacing. however the unit is modular, so can be replaced easily. if this is under warranty you could return it to the manuf... if not, if you can order a laser unit you can replace it yourself.

Symbol LS9203 barcode scanner won't connect to PC with USB cable

Hi Mluckham. Far more concerning is your "non-moving dot". The LS9203 is an omnidirectional scanner (as you know) and it should emit a lovely grid of lines regardless. If the single dot you're describing looks like that of a laser pointer, then there is a fairly serious problem within the unit and would explain it not connecting. If that is the case, I would suggest looking into your warranty and getting it fixed or a replacement.

Alpha 70 Series is not working after disconnecting PC and recnctg

Hello Suzanne. The problem you are going to find here is that Zebex doesn't make this model anymore and haven't for some time. If the unit has power and emits a beam, I have the Zebex generic Programming Card and Programming Guide available on my company's website. Have a look at the sections that include the "reset default" barcodes. Print out that page and try scanning them with your scanner. Resetting the scanner to it's default programming may get everything ironed out. If the scanner doesn't have power or emit a beam, then unfortunately you will be looking at getting a replacement scanner. I can recommend several different scanners what would work fantastically and be quite cheap. If you still need help, please feel free send a message or email me. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Can the Symbol LS4804-I400A scanner scan a QR code bar code?

No, this is a Laser Scanner. The laser beam can scan the barcode only in 1 direction (1D Barcodes). For QR Barcode (2D) you would need an Imager (Digital Scanner).

Metrologic barcode scanner - laser is a dot not a line

This would be a fault with the scan engine. The dot is created when the mirror inside of the scan engine is not oscillating. The best solution is to have the device repaired, hopefully your scanner is still under warranty, or to purchase a replacement. /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt; margin:72.0pt 90.0pt 72.0pt 90.0pt; mso-header-margin:35.4pt; mso-footer-margin:35.4pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

Scanner beeps. Laser is a dot instead of a line.

There is a problem with the scan engine. The dot is created when the mirror inside the scan engine stops oscillating. If your scanner is still under warranty send it back for repair or request a replacement.

Laser beam too short

We can change the scan engine for you if you'd like - it's the only way to solve your issue. You would need a Lorax scan engine (scan up close up to approx 32feet).

Ms9520 buzzez and then will not scan

Look at your user's guide on Pg 14, here is a online link for it: "Continuous Razzberry Tone with all LEDs off: If, upon power, the scanner emits a continuous razzberry tone, then the scanner has an experienced an electronic failure. Return the unit for repair to an authorized service center." Is the "Razzberry Tone" the low buzzing you refer to(?) Pg 24 has a "Trouble Shooting Guide" take a look at it too.

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.
