    I have the ZXing scanner installed on my Samsung Fascinate phone and it had been working fine up til now. It suddenly won't read QR codes, where it had been reading them fine before. I've cleaned my camera lens, but it still won't read them. I don't know if it had anything to do with a recent software update from Verizon or not. Anybody have any ideas on this?

    Try Google Goggles instead. It reads QR codes and so much more. I love multi purpose apps.

    If you still have probs then there's another issue going on with your phone and may not be an app issue at all.

    Goggles read a QR code on my monitor OK, but it morphed a bad of peanuts into a Plymouth Voyager Wheel Hub when I scanned it's bar code, so I don't know. I'll try it a little bit more, but my scanner was working fine until recently for some reason.
