Options for Repair
Zebra offers repair service for both in-warranty and out of warranty products.
In-Warranty Repair: Zebra will validate that your malfunctioning product is in-warranty and will provide you with a repair authorization number for you to use when returning your malfunctioning product for repair.
Out of Warranty Repair: Zebra will validate that your malfunctioning product is out of warranty and will quote you the cost to repair your product. If you choose to proceed with the repair you will need to provide a method of payment (payment options vary by region and customer type), to pay for the repair. Once you have provided your payment method, we will provide you with a repair authorization number for you to use when returning your malfunctioning product for repair.
Payment Methods for Out of Warranty Repair: Customers in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and North America (NA) have the option to pay by credit card or by purchase order, if the customer has a financial relationship with Zebra. Customers located in Asia Pacific (APAC) and Latin America (LA) can only pay by purchase order. In this scenario, customers must have a financial relationship with Zebra.
How to Request to Repair
Requests for repair should be submitted using Zebra’s Repair Order Portal (ROP), our online repair request system.
Alternatively, you can contact Zebra’s Repair Help Desk team using the contact number most convenient for you based on your location for assistance to create a repair request.
Once you have submitted a repair request, you will receive a separate automated email with your repair authorization number from our system mailbox, with attached shipping instructions.
Repair requests for malfunctioning dongles can not be submitted using the Zebra Repair Order Portal. You must first contact the FrontLine Support Team, who will troubleshoot the issue with the dongle and provide direction to resolve the issue.
Note, the Repair Order Portal cannot be used to submit a request for a return for credit or notify Zebra of a dead on arrival product.

Sending Your Malfunctioning Product to Zebra Repair
You must submit a repair authorization request prior to sending your malfunctioning product to Zebra for repair.

You will send your malfunctioning product(s) to an in-region Zebra facility, where the repair will be processed and sent onto Matrox Imaging for repair.
The location where you will send your malfunctioning product(s) is outlined on the repair acknowledgment/shipping manifest document, which is sent by email after your repair request has been processed.
Upon repair completion, your repaired product will be returned to you from the in-region Zebra facility.
Access Released Software and Updates
Downloads previously available from the Matrox Imaging support website are now accessible from the Industrial Machine Vision And Fixed Scanners Support and Downloads page on Zebra.com. On this page, locate the hyperlink to the software page containing the required downloads.
*A customer's first year on the maintenance program begins from the software's original date of purchase.
Renewing Software Support After the free year of software support expires, you can choose to extend the software support services. Beginning Monday, October 16, we are making changes to how you renew your software support.
The following information outlines the upcoming changes.
The DA MAINTENANCE and MIL MAINTENANCE (1-year software support renewal) SKUs that are used today to renew your software support will be replaced with Zebra OneCare (Z1C) Technical & Software Support (TSS) SKUs.
The Technical & Software Support (TSS) SKUs provide the same scope of software support as the former DA MAINTENANCE and MIL MAINTENANCE SKUs: Access to the Update Service, Access to Applications Development Support, and Access to Vision Academy.
When you order TSS, a maintenance agreement, referred to as a service contract, is entered into Zebra systems. This service contract allows us to track your entitlement for these software support services, ensuring uninterrupted access to the services you have purchased.
For detailed information about how to renew software support, please refer to the “Renewing Software Support” section in the Guide to Doing Business with Zebra for Matrox Imaging Products for Industrial Automation Partners or for Direct End Customers.
