store it in a safe place.
STEP 3: CHECK OUT YOUR SCANNER
After installing the scanner and software, you will see a scanner icon on
the Windows taskbar (at the bottom right corner of the computer
screen). If the scanner is properly connected, the scanner icon looks like
the one pictured below.
Scanner Icon
If the icon has a red X through it, the scanner is not properly connected.
See the section, “If the Scanner Is Not Properly Connected” on page 13
for the steps to fix the problem.
STEP 3: CHECK OUT YOUR SCANNER
13
To check the status of the scanner:
1. On the Windows taskbar, right-click the scanner icon.
The shortcut menu appears.
2. Select About from the shortcut menu.
A dialog box confirms the scanner is properly connected.
3. Click OK to close the dialog box. Your scanner is ready to scan.
IF THE SCANNER IS NOT PROPERLY CONNECTED
If the scanner icon on the Windows taskbar has a red “X” through it,
the scanner is not properly connected.
Check for one of these possible problems:
• Is a cable loose or not plugged in securely? Inspect all cable
connections. Make sure all the cables are plugged in securely.
• Is the scanner’s power light on? If the light does not come on, plug
the power adapter into another electrical outlet.
14
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
• Is the scanner’s locking tab in the locked position? Slide the
locking tab to the unlocked position. If you tried to scan with the
scanner locked, you must restart your computer after unlocking the
scanner.
• Did you restart the computer after installing the software? If you
didn’t restart the computer, it may not have loaded all of the software
files. Try restarting your computer.
Please see the Readme file in the PaperPort directory on your
computer’s hard drive. The Readme file contains additional
information that may help you diagnose problems connecting the
scanner. Also see “Troubleshooting” on page 59 for more information.
Note: The scanning lamp under the scanner’s glass needs to warm up
before you can scan. A status message lets you know when the lamp is
ready. The lamp then remains ready so you don’t have to wait each
time you want to scan. To conserve electricity and prolong the life of
the scanner, you can set the length of time for the lamp to remain lit
before powering down. See “Setting Preferences” on page 41.
To connect the scanner:
1. After checking for all the above problems, right-click the scanner
icon with the red X over it.
The shortcut menu appears.
2. Choose Connect from the shortcut menu.
The software finds the scanner and makes the connection. The
scanner icon will no longer have a red X through it, and you’re
ready to begin scanning.
STEP 3: CHECK OUT YOUR SCANNER
15
If you try all the troubleshooting procedures described above and in the
Readme file, and the scanner icon still has a red X through it, you may
have a malfunctioning scanner. Please see “Visioneer 9120 USB
Scanner Specifications” on page 63. Also visit our Web site at
www.visioneer.com for additional technical information. You can also
receive software updates from the Web site.

VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
Scanning
This chapter describes how to scan paper documents as well as 35mm
slides and negatives.
There are three ways to scan a paper item:
■
Press a OneTouch button on the scanner
■
Click a button on the button panel
■
Click a button from the PaperPort software
Note: To scan transparencies you must scan from PaperPort (or other
TWAIN software). See “Scanning 35mm Slides and Negatives” on
page 25 for details.
PRESSING A ONETOUCH BUTTON ON THE SCANNER
Pressing a scanner button scans the item, and then sends the image to
the destination associated with the button.
To scan by pressing a OneTouch button on the scanner:
1. Place an item face down on the glass. Align the edge of the item
with the arrow at the upper-left corner of the glass.
PRESSING A ONETOUCH BUTTON ON THE SCANNER
17
2. Close the document cover and press one of the OneTouch buttons.
The scanner starts scanning the item. Messages just above the
Windows taskbar show the status of the scanning process.
During scanning, the scan progress window shows a copy of the
image, as illustrated here.
When the scan is complete, the scanned image appears in the
destination application. In this example, the destination application
is the PaperPort desktop.
18
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
ABOUT THE ONETOUCH BUTTONS
The OneTouch buttons are preconfigured for typical scanning tasks. To
change button settings, see “Configuring the Buttons” on page 32.
The following table describes the preconfigured button settings:
Button
Function
Preconfigured Settings
Scan
Scans the item as a color page and displays
it in PaperPort.
Email
Scans the item as a color photo and
attaches it to a new email message in your
email application.
OCR
Converts the item’s text to black and white
word processing text, and displays it in a
word processing application.
Copy/Print Prints the scanned item in black and white
on your printer/copier at the printer/
copier’s default resolution.
Custom
Scans the item as a color photo and
displays it in an image processing
application.
Note: If a button is not preconfigured, the Configuration dialog box
opens when you press that button so you can configure it manually.
For example, if your computer does not have email software installed,
the email button is not configured during installation.
SCANNING FROM THE BUTTON PANEL ON THE SCREEN
19
SCANNING FROM THE BUTTON PANEL ON THE SCREEN
Scanning from the button panel on the screen works just like pressing a
scanner button. The scanner scans the item, and then sends the image
to the destination associated with the button. This method of scanning
is especially helpful if the scanner is not located close to your computer.
To scan from the button panel on the screen:
1. Place an item face down on the glass. Align the edge of the item
with the arrow marker at the upper-left corner of the glass.
2. Close the document cover, and click the scanner icon on the righthand side of the Windows taskbar.
The button panel opens on the screen.
3. Click a scan button.
The scanner starts scanning the item. When the scan is complete,
the scanned image appears in the destination application.
4. To close the button panel, click the scanner icon in the button
panel’s upper-left corner.
The icons on the buttons indicate the destination application for the
scanned image. For example, in the illustration above, the icon on the
email button is for the email application, MS Outlook. When you click
the email button, the item is scanned, and then MS Outlook opens. In
this case, the scanned image automatically becomes an attachment to an
email message.
A question mark icon on a button means your computer does not have
an application that corresponds to that button’s functions. For example,
if your computer does not have an email application, the email button
will have a question mark icon on it.
20
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
SCANNING FROM THE PAPERPORT SOFTWARE
Instead of using a scanner button, you can scan directly from the
PaperPort software. To scan a transparency you must scan from the
PaperPort software or other TWAIN software, refer to “Scanning
35mm Slides and Negatives” on page 25.
You can also scan directly with other software that meets the TWAIN
standards for scanning, which includes many graphics and imaging
applications. Refer to the user’s guides you received with those
applications for their specific steps to scan.
Note: If your computer uses the Windows XP or ME operating
system, you can also scan using the Microsoft WIA software. Refer to
“Scanning from a Computer Running Windows XP or ME” on
page 29 for details.
To scan an item from PaperPort:
1. Open the scanner cover and place an item face down on the glass.
Align the edge of the item with the arrow at the upper-left corner of
the glass and then close the cover.

23
The scanner then uses those settings and the preset resolution you
selected for the type of image to produce the optimal scanned
image. See “Setting Scan Manager Pro Preferences” on page 56 to
set the resolution for the type of AutoScan image.
The Scanning dialog box opens while the scan is in progress. Check
marks indicate the completion of a processing step.

SCANNING 35MM SLIDES AND NEGATIVES
Your 9120 OneTouch scanner is specially designed to scan 35mm slides
and negatives. You can scan both positive and negative film images.
A BRIEF EXPLANATION
Your scanner has sensors that capture the image of the item being
scanned. Those sensors are located in the body of the scanner. When
you scan a paper item, the light in the bottom of the scanner shines up
on the paper and reflects the paper’s image down onto the scanning
sensors. If a 35mm slide or negative is on the glass, however, the light
from the bottom of the scanner would shine up through the transparent
35mm slide or negative and would not reflect its image onto the
sensors. That is why your scanner has a light in its document cover.
When you scan a 35mm slide or negative, the light in the bottom of the
scanner turns off, and the light in the cover shines down through the
film onto the sensors to capture the film’s image.
To prepare to scan a 35mm slide or negative:
1. Find the appropriate mask for the item you’re scanning. The masks
are in a protective plastic bag with your scanner.
P/N:180700002060
Mask for 35mm slides.
Mask for 35mm negatives.
26
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
2. To scan a 35mm slide, first position the 35mm mask on the glass.
The mask has one square corner. Align that corner with the arrow
on the scanner body.
Make sure that the text on the 35mm mask faces up so the slide fits
properly in the mask.
Follow the directions on the mask and place the 35mm slide
horizontally into the slide holder.
Calibration slot
Notice that the mask has a narrow slot next to the slide holder.
That slot is for calibration to assure that you get the best possible
scan results. Do not place items in the calibration slot.
3. To scan a negative, first slide the filmstrip into the 35mm negative
mask and center the frame you want to scan in the opening.
Then position that mask on the glass and align its square corner
with the arrow on the scanner body. Make sure the text on the
mask faces up.
SCANNING FROM THE PAPERPORT SOFTWARE
27
The 35mm negative mask also has a calibration slot. Do not place
items to be scanned in the calibration slot.
You’re now ready to scan the slide or negative.

the size of the photo. When AutoCrop is selected, the scanner
makes two passes—the first to sense the item’s size, and the second
to scan the image. This option overrides the Page Size selection.
DeScreen—Select this option when scanning a picture from a
newspaper or magazine article, or other items that contains images
with patterns or dots. Scans of patterns or dots sometimes have a
distorted or wavy appearance. The scanner scans the item to
compensate for the patterns and dots, and produces a clearer image.
The scanning may slow down a bit when this option is selected.
You don’t need to select this option when scanning photographs.
The DeScreen setting does not apply to the Black/White mode.
Gamma—Drag the slider to improve how the colors in a scanned
image look on your monitor. Gamma correction allows you to

ADJUSTING THE RESOLUTION AND SHARPNESS
Resolution determines the amount of detail you can see in the scanned
image. The resolution setting for the scan is in dots-per-inch (dpi). The
higher the resolution, the finer the details, however, higher dpi settings
also produce larger files sizes. Usually the higher resolution settings are
used for precision work, such as photographs or fine artwork.
Sharpness determines the amount of blur in an image. Your scanner can
sharpen an original blurred image by adjusting the blurry edges in
sections of the image.
46
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
The following figure shows the resolution and sharpen options:
Reminder: The location of various buttons on the panels may be
slightly different on your Scan Manager Pro window. The appearance
of the window depends on your monitor’s screen resolution.
To adjust the resolution and sharpness:
1. To use one of the preset resolutions for typical scanned items, click
one of the options in the list.
For example, to set the resolution for scanning a business card,

4. To return the settings to their original amounts, click Reset.
The resolution and sharpen panel also includes an advanced setting for
Moire patterns. Moire patterns are wavy, rippled lines that sometimes
appear on the scanned images of photographs or illustrations,
particularly newspaper and magazine illustrations. To scan the image
and limit or eliminate moire patterns, select the Reduce Moire option.
ADJUSTING THE BRIGHTNESS AND CONTRAST
Sometimes an item is scanned with the brightness and contrast set to be
too light or too dark. For example, a note written with a light pencil
may need to be scanned darker to improve legibility.
The histogram shows the amount of the image (that is, the number of
pixels) at different brightness levels. From left to right, the histogram
indicates dark to light. To see this visually, drag the Brightness slider
back and forth and watch how the distribution of pixels changes to
indicate a darker or lighter image.
The following figure shows the brightness and contrast options:
48
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
To adjust the brightness and contrast:
1. Drag the Brightness slider to the left to make the item darker or to
the right to make the item lighter.
You can also type a number directly into the brightness setting box,
or click the up and down arrows next to the box to increase or
decrease the setting.
2. Drag the Contrast slider to the left to decrease the contrast or to
the right to increase the contrast.
The Histogram represents the settings as you drag the sliders.
For color scan configurations you can adjust the brightness and
contrast using a single color, or all together, by choosing from the
drop-down menu at the top of the Histogram.
For example, if you select Red from the menu and drag the
Brightness and Contrast sliders, you can see how the red
component of the histogram changes. Note, however, that the
Green and Blue components also change relative to those new
brightness and contrast settings.
3. Click the Auto button to have the scanner analyze the image and
set the appropriate brightness and contrast.
You can also adjust the brightness and contrast by sampling portions of
the image in the preview window. The three Sampler buttons
correspond to the Black, Mid tones, and White portions of an image.
To use the Sampler buttons:
1. Click one of the buttons.
The pointer automatically moves onto the image and becomes a
sampler pointer.
2. Click the pointer on the portion of the image for that sample.
For example, if you selected the Black sampler button, place the
pointer on the blackest part of the image.
3. Repeat with each of the other Sampler buttons.

ADJUSTING GAMMA, SATURATION, AND COLOR HUE
If you’re using the Color Configuration to scan, you can adjust a group
of color settings. Gamma controls the brightness of the midtones of the
color, saturation is the strength or purity of a color, and hue is the color
your eyes see as reflected from the image. These color settings are
represented by a response curve.
The horizontal axis of the response curve represents the original settings
of the image, and the vertical axis represents new settings. Thus, the
curve is a straight line from the lower left to upper right for an original,
unchanged image. To see how the response curve indicates changes,
drag the Gamma slider to left and right.
The following figure shows the color options:
50
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
To adjust the color settings:
1. From the Channel drop-down menu, choose the individual color
(Red, Green, or Blue) that you want to use as the basis for adjusting
the image, or choose All to adjust them together.
2. From the Edit Style drop-down menu, choose the type of color
editing that you want to use:
■
Gamma—The response curve changes as you change the gamma
setting; you can also change the saturation and hue settings.
■
Freestyle—You can drag points and sections of the response
curve to create interesting and unusual color effects. Put the
pointer on the curve and drag left, right, up or down. The image
changes its colors in response to the new curve. The x and y
numbers at the bottom of the response curve indicate the exact
position of the pointer on the curve. The Gamma slider remains
fixed when you use the Freestyle option.
3. Drag the Gamma, Saturation, and Color Hue sliders to the left to
decrease the settings or to the right to increase the settings.
You can also type a number directly into the setting boxes, or click
the up and down arrows next to the boxes.
4. Click Reset to return the settings to their original numbers.
The upper Reset button is for the gamma setting, the lower one is
for saturation and hue.
5. To save the settings of a response curve, click Save.
Saving is available for settings created with the Freestyle editing
option so you can load and reuse the exact settings on other images.
This is especially helpful for complex Freestyle response curves.

ADJUSTING OUTPUT SIZE
The item you’re scanning may not fill the scanner glass. In that case you
can preview the item and use the Auto Trim option to automatically
eliminate the unwanted sections of the image.
You can also adjust the output size to scan only specific sections of an
image. For example, if you’re scanning a photograph and want to focus
on one section, adjusting the output size removes the rest of the
photograph from the final scanned image.
The following figure shows the output size options:
To Auto Trim an item:
1. Select Auto Trim, and then click the Trim button.
The scanner senses the edges of the item on the glass and draws a
dotted line around the image in the window.
Check to make sure the dotted line encloses the image you want.
A new Scan Info box on the lower left portion of the Scan Manager
Pro shows the information for the autotrimmed area.
52
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
2. If the dotted line is not exactly where you want it, put the pointer
on the line and drag the mouse.
For example, if you want the scan to include a border around the
image, you can drag the dotted line to be slightly larger than the
autotrimmed area.
To use the pointer to drag the line, make sure the pointer button is
selected at the top of the window.
3. When the trimmed area is what you want, click Scan.
To manually set the output size for an item:
1. To scan the entire item on the glass, click Same as Original. No
sections are trimmed.
2. To set the output size yourself, click Same as Original to remove
the checkmark.
The settings for the output size become active.
3. Put the pointer on the image and drag the mouse to enclose the
section you want in the scanned image.
As you drag the mouse, a dotted box appears on the image and the
size settings change to reflect the new output size area. You can also
type in the size settings boxes.

SETTING SCAN MANAGER PRO PREFERENCES
You can set preferences for the Scan Manager Pro and scanner that are
independent of the preferences for the PaperPort software.
To set the Scan Manager Pro preferences:
1. Click the Preferences button.
The User Preferences dialog box opens.
2. Select the preferences you want:
■
Enable selection of color bit depths—Your OneTouch 9120
scanner supports a tremendous range of colors (defined as 48-bit
depth enhanced color), but other applications (called TWAIN
clients), such as older photo enhancing applications that you can
use with the Scan manager Pro, support only a 24-bit depth
range of colors. Select this option to automatically allow the
Scan Manager Pro’s color settings to support more than a 24-bit
depth if the other application supports the greater range of
colors. Then, when you open the Scan Manager Pro from other
applications, options for bit depth include the higher settings.
■
Do not wait for the Lamp—When you first start scanning, the
lamp in the scanner warms up slowly. This helps extend the life
of the lamp. However, if you want the lamp to come on
immediately without warming up. select this option.

output options, the width and height dimensions are then for
metric paper sizes.
■
Show standard US paper sizes—Select this option to set the
paper sizes for standard US paper.
■
Units—Select the measurement units for the ruler around the
preview window. The x and y coordinates of the pointer position
are relative to the units.
■
AutoScan Resolution—You can scan an item by clicking the
AutoScan button on the Scan Manager Pro. The scanner uses
these resolution settings for the respective configurations: Color,
Grey Scale and Black and White.
■
Folder for Temporary Images—When you scan an item, its
scanned image is initially stored in a folder before being sent to
the PaperPort desktop or some other application. Instead of
using the default folder specified by the Scan Manager Pro, you
can select another folder on your computer. Usually the only
reason to select this option is if the default folder is on a hard
disk with limited storage space. Click the folder icon and the
Browse for Folder dialog box opens. Select the folder you want
to use and click OK. That folder name is then listed on the
Preferences dialog box.
3. Click OK to save your preferences.

TROUBLESHOOTING
59
Maintenance
This chapter contains information on troubleshooting, cleaning,
uninstalling, and scanner specifications.
TROUBLESHOOTING
In addition to the troubleshooting information contained in this
section, please see the Readme file in the PaperPort directory on your
computer’s hard drive. The Readme file contains additional information
that may help you diagnose problems with the scanner.
If you try all the troubleshooting procedures described in this section
and in the Readme file, and the scanner still has problems, you may
have a malfunctioning scanner. Please see the technical support card
that you received with your scanner for technical assistance telephone
numbers. Also visit our Web site at www.visioneer.com for additional
technical information.
Problem: The scanner won’t scan. What’s wrong?
Check for one of these possible problems:
• Is a cable loose or not plugged in securely? Inspect all cable
connections. Make sure all the cables are plugged in securely.
• Is the scanner’s status light on? If the light is not on, plug the power
supply into another electrical outlet.
• Is the scanner’s locking tab in the locked position? Slide the
locking tab to the unlocked position. If you tried to scan with the
scanner locked, you must restart your computer after unlocking the
scanner.
• Did you restart the computer after installing the software? If you
didn’t restart the computer, it may not have loaded all of the software
files. Try restarting your computer.
60
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 9120 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
• Did you select another TWAIN source for acquiring images? If
you use multiple TWAIN devices with your computer, you may have
selected another source for images. Start the PaperPort software and
click the Scan icon. From the Scanner drop-down list, choose
Visioneer Scan Manager Pro.
Problem: During installation I got the error message: PaperPort
Installation is not complete. What do I do?
The installation procedure was not successful. You need to reinstall the
PaperPort software.
Problem: I got the error message: PaperPort cannot allocate enough
memory to perform internal critical operations. What do I do?
Close any other active applications so that additional memory is
available. If you click Continue, PaperPort moves the file to the
PaperPort data directory and renames the file with the prefix “bad.”
This allows you to recover the file later.
To recover the file, you can import it into PaperPort by using the
Import command in the File menu.
Problem: How do I uninstall PaperPort?
See the section, “How to Uninstall Your Scanner” on page 61.
Uninstalling does not delete your scanned items, and they remain in the
following PaperPort Data folder:
C:\My Documents\My PaperPort Documents Folder
CLEANING THE SCANNER GLASS
Scanning items that have excessive amounts of dirt or dust may dirty
the glass. To ensure the best quality scanned item, wipe the scanner glass
with a soft clean cloth to rid the glass of dust or other debris.
