4.1 Calibrate the Scanner
Calibrate only if the scanned image looks fuzzy, the color looks abnormal (e.g., darker than
normal), after more than 8,000 scanned, or the scanner has been stored without use for a
long time. The calibration process resets the Contact Image Sensor to resume its color and
sharpness precision.
Calibration can only be performed with the wand scanner out of the feeder dock. When the
scanner is attached to the feeder dock, the calibration feature is disabled.
To calibrate the scanner, complete the following steps:
1.
Make sure the battery is fully charged and a memory card is inserted.
2.
Remove the calibration sheet from its plastic cover and lay it on a flat surface with the
printed side UP.
3.
Remove the scanner from the feeder dock.
4.
Place the scanner on the white area of the calibration sheet, at the top of the white
area.
* Make sure the sheet is clean (i.e. no debris or colored objects).
