Zebex Z-6070 Barcode Scanner Repairs

The Zebex Z-6070 USB Presentation Barcode Scanner is a good unit that very seldom fails or developes major faults. 

The only problem that seems to occur frequently is the two reset buttons on the sides of the scanner that become faulty or in many cases just goes missing.

Our Technical Guy received quite a few from a client. The units were all first tested and no other faults were found apart from the missing switches and rubber covers.

The units were stripped, washed, serviced and re-assembled. New switches were soldered into place and new rubber covers fitted.

The Z-6070 was plugged into the PC and function tested with the new switches and unit worked 100%. Scanner is ready for collection by the client.

Contact us for repairs or advice on keeping your Zebex scanners working at their best.

Vertical or Presentation Barcode Scanners not Scanning Effectively

If your vertical or presentation scanner is battling to scan smaller barcodes which it once did effectively, it is possibly caused by a dust buildup internally on the optic surfaces.

The laser scanners all use a rotating mirror motor which spins at high speed to distribute the laser light across mirrors to achieve the scan pattern that scans barcodes at different angles. This spinning motor causes air movement inside the scanner enclosure that sucks in dust over time.

The dust settles and coates the highly reflective mirrors causing the beam to loose its “sharpness” and scanning becomes more and more difficult.

This dust also settles on the inside of the scan window which hinders the reflected light from reaching the sensor that reads the barcode inside the enclosure. 

Don’t suffer the frustration of the barcode scanner that battles to scan – bring or send it to our Technical Guy for a thorough cleaning. All covers are washed and the reflective mirrors are cleaned and polished, PC boards are cleaned. The scanner will, after this “Service”, scan all your barcodes aggressively again.

Honeywell 3800G and 1300G Barcode Scanner Cables

Please be aware that the Honeywell 3800G and the 1300G models look similar but do not use the same cable.

The connector end of the cables differ between the 3800G and the 1300G

Apart from the physical difference between the cables, the pin configurations also differ resulting in damaged to the components on the PC Board.

The 1300G cable can not be inserted into the 3800G but we have seen cables that have pushed in with force or the end caps have been changed to allow the cable to fit. 

Please note that using the wrong cable on the wrong scanner results in a blown board which can not be repaired. Always ensure that you have the correct cable.

Repairs and Servicing of an Argox X2000+ Barcode Label Printer

Procedure explained for repairs and servicing to an Argox printer.

When we receive a barcode label printer for repairs the printer is first tested to determine any faults in the operation of the printer. The printer is then opened for a visual inspection of all the components and boards. 

At this point a quote is prepared and sent to the client for approval. Once the go-ahead has been given the printer is stripped and all components washed and cleaned. Non washable parts are cleaned with compressed air, like the PC Boards etc.

Once the printer body and components have been cleaned the printer is re-assembled and faulty parts are replaced. 

The Thermal Print Head is cleaned and checked for any scratches or replaced depending on the condition determined when initial tests were done and is fitted last.

Once the printer is completely assembled it is given a full function test and any adjustments are made to the printing mechanism. Once we are happy with the functioning of the printer it is ready to be collected or delivered to the client.

For repairs or servicing of your label printer, contact us on 011 425 5439 or info@jnstech.co.za

Wireless Barcode Scanners

Wireless or portable barcode scanners can mean one of two things:

  1. Normal Barcode Scanners with no wire connecting them to a terminal but using a radio frequency or Bluetooth connection between the scanner and its base station.
  2. A portable data terminal is also sometimes referred to as a wireless scanner. A PDT is a device with a display, keyboard and a scanner that either stores the scanned data in its memory for later download or transmits the data via Bluetooth or WiFi.
Wireless Bluetooth Barcode Scanner. Portable Data Terminal or Mobile Computer

Bluetooth Barcode Scanners

As stated before, these type of scanners use Bluetooth to communicate between the handheld scanner and its base station/charger. The base station is connected to a PC or other terminal with a USB cable. The scanners are also able to connect directly to a bluetooth enabled device such as a tablet or smartphone etc.

The working range between the scanner and its base station varies from 10 to 100 m depending on the manufacturer and model. The scanners use re-chargeable batteries for power and these are charged when the scanner is placed into the base/charger. The number of scans that the scanner can do on a charge average about 40 000 scans but again it depends on the manufacturer and model.

The Honeywell Voyager 1202g-bf wireless scanner does not use a battery but rather a “super capacitor” to power the unit, a first in its class! The scanner when placed in its charger takes about 35 seconds to charge and this will provide enough power for at least 100 scans.

What you will need to create your own Barcode Labels.

To print your own labels with either text or barcodes or both, you will need the following:

  1. Barcode Label Printer
  2. Barcode Software
  3. Self adhesive labels or tags
  4. Thermal Ribbon if using Thermal Transfer Printer

Barcode Label Printers

There are a variety of label printers available from the leading manufacturers like Argox, Honeywell (Intermec), Datamax, Zebra. Printers are available from Entry level (Low volume) to Industrial Strength (High volume).

We at JNS Technologies aren’t tied down to a specific brand of printer enabling us to offer you the printer to best suite your application.

There are two methods used to print barcode labels namely:

  • Thermal Transfer more commonly known as “TT”
  • Direct Thermal more commonly known as “DT”

Thermal Transfer Method uses an ink ribbon situated between the thermal print head and label. Heat from the print head essentially burns the ink onto the label creating a clear long lasting print.

Direct Thermal Method uses no ribbon but prints directly on the label. The labels have to be thermal paper labels similar to the older fax machine prints. These labels are not long lasting and are easily scuffed and affected by heat and moisture.

Barcode Software

Most barcode printers come with a free version of label design software, drivers and other utilities.

If you need more functionality that what the free versions offer then there are software packages available that can be purchased.

The free versions like Bartender UL which ships with the Argox printers allows you to create labels with text, simple graphics and a barcode. The labels can be saved and used again when desired. The Bartender UL package is normally all that is needed, we have very few clients that have purchased other additional software.

Labels

JNS Technologies does not directly deal with label sales but we will depending on your location suggest a company in your area that can supply you with the labels according to your specifications.

Thermal Ribbons

Thermal Transfer ribbons are available from us in different sizes to fit most of the popular printers. There are three types of ribbon available for the different label material. When speaking to your label supplier they will be able to suggest which type of ribbon will be best suited to the label you are purchasing.

Ribbon types are:

  • Wax Ribbon
  • Wax/Resin Ribbon
  • Resin Ribbon.

When you order ribbon from us, please give the following information

  • Length of ribbon
  • Width of ribbon
  • Core size or printer make and model

Problems with Barcode Printers

Are you having a problem with your printed barcode labels? We will try and give examples of all the faults and how to remedy them.

Barcode scanners not able to read your printed label

The most common cause of scanners not being able to read barcodes  printed on labels is caused by dead pixels on the Thermal Print Head. These dead pixels result in missing lines in the barcode. Clean the Thermal Print Head with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth to remove any dirt from the print head. Never use any abrasive or sharp object to remove dirt or stuck labels as this will damage the print head. If the labels are still not printing correctly after cleaning then you will have to replace the Thermal Print Head.

Printed labels have sections where the print looks lighter or is missing

If you look at the printed label and part of the print is missing, smudged or light then follow the steps above to clean the Thermal Print Head or have it replaced.

Printed labels are too light or look dark and smudged

When looking at the labels and the print is dark and smudged or is feint then change the heat setting of the print head either higher or lower and re-test the print. This problem can also be caused by an incorrect ribbon type for the labels you are using. Ribbons come in three types – Wax, Wax Resin and Resin. Speak to your label supplier to find out which type of ribbon will be best suited to the label material.

Printer printing across two labels or skipping labels

The common cause of skipping labels or not aligning the print correctly on the label is the Media Sensor. The media sensor detects the gap or black line between the labels allowing the printer to “know” where the label begin and ends. Locate the media sensor and run a soft clean cloth over the sensor to remove any dirt from it. after installing the label through the sensor, press the feed button to test, after feeding one label the printer should stop. The problem can also be caused by having the size of the label incorrectly set in the software you are using on the computer. Having the label dimensions larger than what the physical label is can also cause misaligned print and skipping labels. If after cleaning and checking the dimensions you still have the problem then the media sensor is possibly faulty and will need to be changed.

Printer making grinding noises or is excessively noisy

The label printers use either belts or gears to drive the mechanisms that move the platten roller and ribbon take up spools. These do wear over time and need to be replaced. We suggest having your printer serviced every six months so that parts can be cleaned or replaced.

Barcode Scanner not working?

Are you facing the frustration of a barcode scanner that is not working as it should? We will in this article try and give you ideas of what to look for to rectify the problem you are having.

Not scanning barcode. 

If you are pointing the scanner at the barcode and activating the trigger and not getting any audible or visual indication that the barcode has been read it is normally due to a dirty scan lens. Check the scan lens for dirt or smudges. Clean the lens with a soft cloth moistened with some water or mild detergent. If the scan lens is badly scratched or chipped you will need to send the scanner for repair to have the lens changed or polished.

Scanning barcode but nothing appearing on connected device.

If you have scanned the barcode and got the audible and visual indication of a good read but nothing gets transmitted to the PC, POS Terminal or other device then check the following:

  1. Check that the scanner is set to the correct interface (Cable).  Reprogram the scanner using the programming manual to correct interface.
  2. Make sure cables are properly plugged into the scanner and host. If using a USB scanner, unplug from the host and plug back in. Check the condition of the cable and connectors. The cables eventually harden at the scanner side causing the internal wires to break.
  3. If using a keyboard wedge cable check that no pins have been bent or broken off inside the PS2 connectors.

The scanner causes an error on the software running on the host.

Check the suffix and prefix programmed into the scanner. This type of problem is mostly caused by incorrect or missing prefixes or suffixes. Use the programming manual to set the scanner back to factory default then set to the correct interface with a suffix of CR (Carriage Return). This normally sorts out most of the communication problems or errors.

Scanner completely dead.

Here are a couple of guidelines for you to check:

  1. Check condition of cables and pins if applicable, make sure the cable is securely plugged in to the scanner and the host terminal.
  2. If an external Power Supply is required and being used, check that it has an output voltage and is securely plugged into the appropriate receptacle.
  3. If using a USB interface scanner plug the cable into another USB port on the host. It is possible that the USB port is faulty or dead.

If none of the above helps to solve the problem you are having contact us. Our technical department will do its best to have the unit repaired in the shortest time possible. All faulty scanners are to be sent to our premises for repair, we unfortunately do not do any field repairs.

Choosing the Right Barcode Scanner for your Application

Barcode Scanners have through the changes in technology become easier to use than a few years ago when scanners had to plug into decoders and used external power supplies. The majority of users now plug the scanners into PC’s or other devices with USB cables. Scanners can also be used with Keyboard Wedge or Serial (RS232) interface cables.

With all the advances in technology there are now many more options and varieties of scanners to choose from. Choosing the correct model for your application can seem like a daunting task if the different options are not fully understood.

First step in finding the correct scanner is looking at your needs:

  • In what environment will the scanner be used? Office, Retail or Industrial.
  • How many scans will it be required to do in a day?
  • What type of barcode will you be scanning? 1D or 2D barcodes
  • Will the scanner be connected to a PC or is a wireless model required?

Scanner operational environment.

Using a scanner that was designed for office or light commercial use will not last in an industrial type environment where it is exposed to dust and moisture and rough handling.

Entry level light commercial or office type scanner Rugged industrial type scanner

 

Scanner Usage

An entry level barcode scanner will be suited to operate in an office or light commercial store but will be ineffective where high volumes of items need to be scanned. Scanners are available with Scan Stands allowing the user to pass the barcodes in front of the scanner or it can be used as a handheld. In high volume supermarkets we suggest using a fixed mount presentation type scanner.

Handheld Low Volume Scanners Medium Volume with Scan Stand High Volume Supermarket scanner

 

Type of Barcode to be scanned

1D Barcodes are seen almost daily on retail products. There are a few different types of these barcodes like, EAN, UPC, Code 128, Code 39 etc. These are known as the different “Symbologies”. All 1D barcode scanners purchased from us read all the popular 1D symbologies. The 2D barcode scanners do also read the 1D barcodes. View 1D Scanners.

 

 

2D Barcodes are seen on vehicle license discs or the drivers license. A 2D barcode can hold a significant amount of information. As with 1D barcodes there are a few different symbologies like PDF417, QR Code, Matrix etc. Only a 2D barcode scanner will read these types of barcodes. View 2D Scanners.

 

 

Corded Scanners and Wireless Scanners

Scanners that are corded need to plug into a PC or other device with a USB, Keyboard Wedge or Serial cable. The average length of the cables is 3m. If you need to scan product further away from the PC or terminal then a wireless scanner is required. The wireless scanners use Bluetooth or some other frequency to communicate with its base station which in turn is connected to the PC or Terminal. The range that these scanners can operate depends on the models and manufacturer. They typically range from 10 to 100m.
