VISIONEER ONETOUCH 6600 SCANNER INSTALLATION AND USER GUIDE
STEP 3: CHECKING 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 next section, “If the Scanner Is Not Properly Connected” on
page 9, for the steps to fix the problem.
To check the status of the scanner:
1. On the Windows taskbar, right-click on 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.
STEP 3: CHECKING OUT YOUR SCANNER
9
Your scanner is ready to scan. See “Three Ways to Scan” on page 11.
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 for it to
warm up 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 25.
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 or more 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.
• 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.
Refer to the PaperPort Readme file. The Readme file contains additional
information that may help you diagnose problems connecting the
scanner. From the Windows taskbar, click Start, point to PaperPort,
and then click Read Me. See also“Troubleshooting” on page 38 for
more information.
10
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 6600 SCANNER INSTALLATION AND USER GUIDE
To connect the scanner:
1. After checking for the above problems, if the scanner does not start
automatically, right-click the scanner icon with the red X over it.
The shortcut menu appears.
2. Select 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.
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 OneTouch 6600
Specifications” on page 48. Also visit our web site at www.visioneer.com
for additional technical information.
THREE WAYS TO SCAN
11
Scanning
This chapter describes three methods of scanning, as well as how to
customize scanning options.
THREE WAYS TO SCAN
You can scan items by using buttons on the scanner, buttons on the
screen, or from the PaperPort software (or other Twain software).
• Scan with the scanner buttons
Press a button on the scanner’s front panel. See “Scanning by
Pressing the Scanner Buttons” on page 12.
• Scan from the screen
On the Windows taskbar, click the scanner icon. A panel of scanner
buttons opens. Click a button to start a scan. See “Scanning from the
Button Panel on the Screen” on page 14 for details.
• Scan from the PaperPort software (or other Twain software)
Start the PaperPort software and then click the Twain icon on the
PaperPort command bar. You can also scan from other Twain
software. See “Scanning from the PaperPort Software” on page 28.
12
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 6600 SCANNER INSTALLATION AND USER GUIDE
SCANNING BY PRESSING THE SCANNER BUTTONS
Pressing a scanner button scans the item and then sends the image to
the printer or a software application on your computer.
To scan by pressing a button on the scanner:
1. Place an item face-down on the glass and align the edge of the item
with the arrow marker at the lower-left corner of the glass.
2. Close the document cover and press one of the scanner buttons.
The scanner starts scanning. The scan progress window shows a
small copy of the image, as illustrated by this example:
The scanned image appears in the destination software. In this
example, the destination software is the PaperPort desktop.
SCANNING BY PRESSING THE SCANNER BUTTONS
13
ABOUT THE BUTTONS ON THE SCANNER
The scanner buttons are preconfigured to scan items at various settings
and then send the scanned image to a preselected destination software
application. You can change the settings for each button. See “About the
Configuration Dialog Box” on page 15.
The following table lists the scanner’s preconfigured button settings:
Button
Preconfigured Settings
Email
Scans the item as a color photo and attaches it to a
new email message in your email application
Scan
Scans the item as an AutoCrop scan photograph and
displays it in the PaperPort application
Copy/Print
Prints the scanned item in black and white on your
printer/copier at the printer/copier’s default resolution
Note: If a button is not preconfigured, the Configuration dialog box
opens on your computer screen so you can configure it manually. For
example, if your computer does not have email software installed, the
Email button is not preconfigured.
14
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 6600 SCANNER INSTALLATION AND USER GUIDE
SCANNING FROM THE BUTTON PANEL ON THE SCREEN
Scanning from the button panel on the screen is just like pressing a
scanner button, except you click the button on the computer screen.
The scanner scans the item and then sends the image to the printer or a
destination application on your computer. This method of scanning is
especially helpful if the scanner is not located close to your computer.
To scan from the screen:
1. Place an item face-down on the glass, close the lid, and then click
the scanner icon on the Windows taskbar.
The scanner button panel opens on the screen.
2. Click one of the scan buttons.
The scanner starts scanning the item. Messages about the scanning
appear above the Windows taskbar and the progress window shows
the image as it is scanned. When the scan is complete, the scanned
image appears in the destination application.
ABOUT THE BUTTONS ON THE BUTTON PANEL
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 Express. When
you click the email button, the item is scanned, and then MS Outlook
Express opens. In this case, the scanned image automatically becomes an
attachment to send with 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.
SCANNING FROM THE BUTTON PANEL ON THE SCREEN
15
CONFIGURING THE SCANNER AND SCREEN BUTTONS
When you first connect your scanner to a computer, the scanner’s
software configures each button with appropriate settings. Using the
Configuration dialog box, you can modify the button settings to meet
your specific needs.
ABOUT THE CONFIGURATION DIALOG BOX
The Configuration dialog box shows the current settings for each
button on the scanner and screen panel.
The tabs across the top of the dialog box correspond to the buttons.
Clicking a tab shows the current settings for the corresponding button
on the scanner.
For example, the following figure shows the current settings for the Scan
button because the Scan tab is selected. The Scan button is set up to
scan the item with the configuration named Scan Magazine, and then
after the scanning is finished, to open PaperPort to display the scanned
image. The Format and Page(s) option is set to scan as a bitmap for a
single page item.

VISIONEER ONETOUCH 6600 SCANNER INSTALLATION AND USER GUIDE
AutoCrop—Select this option to let the scanner automatically
determine the size of the item being scanned. For example, if you
put a photo in the middle of the glass, the scanner will
automatically determine the size of the photo. When AutoCrop is
selected, the scanner makes two passes—the first pass senses the
item’s size, and the second pass scans the image. This option
overrides the Page Size menu 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
achieve precise color matching. Because the computer cannot
always transmit the exact color information to the hardware, you
may have to make some color adjustments using the Gamma
feature.
The default Gamma setting works fine in most cases and normally
does not need to be adjusted.
6. Click OK.
On the Configuration dialog box, make sure the configuration you

SCANNING FROM THE PAPERPORT SOFTWARE
Instead of using a scanner button, you can scan directly from the
PaperPort software. This is particularly helpful when you are using
PaperPort to file and save your scanned items.
Note: You can also scan directly with other software that meets the
Twain standards for scanning, which includes many graphics and
imaging applications available for your computer. The following steps
explain how to set up and scan from the PaperPort software but you
use the same basic processes with other Twain software.
SETTING UP THE SCANNER FOR PAPERPORT
To scan from PaperPort, you must first do a one-time-only set up of the
software.
To set up the scanner for PaperPort:
1. If the PaperPort software is not running, double-click the PaperPort
icon on the Windows desktop to start it.
The PaperPort desktop opens.
2. From the File menu, click Select Source. The Select Source dialog
box opens, listing all Twain devices installed on your computer.
Twain devices include scanners, digital cameras, and other
equipment that can capture images for your computer. Twain is a
standard method that computers use to receive images from those
devices.
SCANNING FROM THE PAPERPORT SOFTWARE

3. Click the Scan Manager, and then click Select.
Your scanner is now set to scan.
Note: You don’t need to complete Steps 2 and 3 again, unless you
change the selected source to another Twain device.
SCANNING AN ITEM USING THE TWAIN BUTTON
To scan an item:
1. If the PaperPort software is not running, double-click the PaperPort
icon on the Windows desktop to start it.
The PaperPort desktop opens.
2. Open the scanner cover, place the item you want to scan face down,
and close the cover.
3. Click the Twain icon on the PaperPort software’s command bar, or
click Acquire from the File menu.
The Scan Manager opens.

setting for the item you’re scanning. In the example above, the
selected setting is “Color Document-Faster.”
5. Click the Preview button.
The scanner scans a preview of the item and displays it in the Scan
Manager. In the figure below, the picture shows a close-up of a boy
and a dog.
6. You can now fine-tune the options on the Scan Manager for the
item you’re scanning.
Note: For additional details about the Scan Manager’s features click

7. Check the preview image. If you want to change the scanner setting
for the item, click one of the options in the Scan Page For list.
For example, to scan a black and white image instead of a color
photo, select Black & White Photo in the list.
See the table in the section “Selecting a Predefined Scanner Setting”
on page 33 for a description of these predefined settings.
8. To select the area to scan, drag the borders of the selection rectangle
surrounding the preview image to reduce or enlarge the area.
When you preview an item to scan, the selection rectangle around
the image indicates the scan area. However, you may want to select
only a certain area of an item to scan. Selecting an appropriate scan
area can result in a faster scan and a smaller file size. See “Selecting
the Area of the Item You Want to Scan” on page 37 for details.
The scanned image’s file size and available space on your computer’s
hard drive are shown at the bottom-left side of the Scan Manager.
9. If you want to preview the item again with the new settings, click
the Preview button again on the Scan Manager.
10. When you are satisfied with the preview image, click the Scan
button on the Scan Manager. The scanned item appears as a
thumbnail image in the ScanSoft PaperPort desktop.

True Color Grayscale B&W
Selecting the proper scanner setting before scanning produces the best
results for a scanned item. The scanner setting determines the resolution
of the item and the number of possible shades of gray or color. The
symbols next to the setting names indicate the scan mode—True Color,
Grayscale, or Black and White. The scanner settings affect the speed of
the scan and the file size. The Scan Manager shows the approximate file
size of a scanned item to help you decide whether to use a particular
scanner setting.
Note: Your scanner is initially set to scan with the setting Color
Document—Faster. To scan at a higher resolution, select Color
Document—Better Quality. Note, however, that scanning at a higher
resolution creates a larger file size, takes longer to scan, and may not
print any better. To minimize the file size and the time required to get
a better quality scan, select just the area of the item that you want to
scan. For more information about selecting the area of an item, see
“Selecting the Area of the Item You Want to Scan” on page 37.
SELECTING SCAN CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
The scan configuration options provide additional settings when
scanning an image. Note that when you select one of the predefined
scanner settings, these options show the current selection for that
setting, but you can change them as you wish.
The options are:
Mode—Shows the scan mode such as color, grayscale, and black-andwhite. Click the drop-down arrow to see your choices for the scan
mode. The symbols next to the selections indicate their mode setting.
Select one of the modes for scanning from the list.
Res—This is the resolution setting for the scan in dots-per-inch (dpi).
The higher the dpi, the sharper the image. But higher dpi settings also
produce larger files sizes. Usually the higher resolution settings are used
for precision work, such as photographs or fine artwork. Click the
drop-down arrow and select one of the resolution settings from the list.
SCANNING FROM THE PAPERPORT SOFTWARE
35
Size—The page size for the image. If you want to use one of the preset
sizes, click the drop-down arrow and select the size from the list. If you
want to create a custom size, click in the picture window and drag the
mouse. A dotted box on the window indicates the page size, and the two
number boxes—with the vertical and horizontal symbols next to
them—show the actual page size in inches. You can also enter the
vertical and horizontal sizes in those two number boxes. To set the units
for the sizes, click the drop-down arrow for the size units. The choices
are inches, cm (for centimeters), and pixels.
AutoCrop—Select this option to let the scanner automatically
determine the size of the item being scanned. For example, if you put a
photo in the middle of the glass, the scanner will automatically
determine the size of the photo. When AutoCrop is selected, click
Preview to crop the image, and then click Scan to start the scan.
Adv. Settings—Click this button to see advanced settings for scanning.
See the online Help information for details about the advanced settings.
CUSTOMIZING A SCANNER SETTING

light or too dark. For example, a note written with a light pencil may
need to be scanned darker to improve legibility.
You can adjust the brightness and contrast at which grayscale and color
items are scanned. You can also adjust the brightness for black-andwhite items.
To adjust brightness and contrast:
1. Click the Adv. Settings button on the Scan Manager. The

allows you to crop the item. The dimensions of the selected area
appear in the Scan Configuration settings.
You can also type length and width dimensions directly into the
boxes that show the dimensions of the selection area. Use this
process to produce a precise scan area size.
4. To position the rectangle over the area you want to scan, click and
hold the left mouse button and drag to the location desired.

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.
• 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.
• 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 Select Source from the File menu. Click Scan Manager and
click Select.
CLEANING THE SCANNER GLASS

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 40.
Uninstalling does not delete your scanned items, and they remain in the
PaperPort Data 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.
