  • Q: Is the 48-hour comprehensive service coverage available in Canada?
  • No. The 48-hour comprehensive service coverage is only available for US customers.
  • Q: Are there international service centers?
  • In addition to our service center in Orange County, CA, Unitech America has service centers in Canada and Mexico. 
  • Q: The Scanner Configuration Manager software gets an error or won't connect to my device when trying to upload or download settings
  • Often times your antivirus software can block the USB filter used by the configuration software.  You can try disabling your software or running the configuration software on a PC that is not running an antivirus.  Also try configuring the software on a user account that has administrative privileges, or right-click the shortcut and select 'Run as Administrator'.  If these suggestions do not solve your problem, there are other ways to configure your scanner.  You can download the manual from the product's download page here on our website.  The manual will contain configuration barcodes that you can scan to reconfigure your scanner.  You can also modify any settings within the Scanner Configuration Manager software and select 'Settings > Print into Barcode' from the menu bar.  This option will send a configuration sheet of barcodes to your printer.  When you scan those barcodes from top to bottom, your scanner will be reconfigured with the settings modified within the software.
