Question about Zebex Alpha-70 Handheld

1 Answer

Stopped scanning Hello, I have a Curves fitness facility and have the GoFigure member software system. We've been using the Zebex Alpha-70 barcode scanner to scan members' keytags for almost 5 years now. It has recently stopped scanning. The light is still red, but it won't read anything.

Re: 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?

Installing the Zebex z-3010

Normally, these scanners need no software, as they simply send a series of digits to the active text box. Try opening notepad or word and scanning any barcode. It should type the number itself.

This device needs no software. You first need to set it up with the configuration card ( Then it should scan the barcode number in to the selected text area.

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!
