To connect the PaperPort scanner:
1. Turn off the power to your computer. (Remember to save any open
files before closing Windows.)
2. Plug the PC end of the PaperPort Strobe cable into any available
parallel (LPT) port on the back of your computer.
If all of the parallel ports on your computer are currently used by other
devices, see the section, “If All Parallel Ports Are in Use,” on page 7.
3. Plug the other end of the PaperPort Strobe cable into the round port
on the back of the scanner.

IF ALL PARALLEL PORTS ARE IN USE
If your computer’s parallel ports are all in use by other devices, such as
printers, you can “daisy-chain” the scanner and up to four other devices so
they share the port. To achieve the best scanner performance when daisychaining devices in this manner, connect the PaperPort Strobe cable
directly to the computer, and then attach the other devices to the housing
of the cable as shown in the figure below.
To add the scanner to a parallel port already in use:
1. Turn off the power to your computer.
2. Unplug the cable currently plugged into your computer’s parallel port.
3. Plug the PaperPort Strobe cable into the parallel port.
4. Plug the other cable (the one you unplugged in step 2) into the parallel
port on the housing of the PaperPort Strobe cable.
Before: The printer is connected
directly to the parallel port.
After: The printer is connected to
the PaperPort Strobe cable, which is
connected to the parallel port.
5. Restart your computer.
▼
NOTE: If you don’t want to daisy-chain the parallel devices, you can
install another parallel port card into the computer. For details, please
see the Readme that you received with your scanner.

SETTING UP YOUR SCANNER AND SOFTWARE

CALIBRATING THE PAPERPORT STROBE SCANNER
Proper calibration is necessary to produce the best possible image quality.
To calibrate, use the calibration page included with the scanner. You can
also use any plain white sheet of paper that is 9 inches (22.9 cm) wide and
at least 6 inches (15.2 cm) long; however, the quality of the calibration may
not be as good as if you use the special calibration page. Store the
calibration page so you can reuse it for future calibrations
To calibrate the scanner:
■ Insert the 9-inch edge (the wider edge) of the calibration page into
the scanner. If you’re using a regular white sheet of paper, insert it
sideways, not lengthwise, into the scanner.
The sheet should extend over the two page markers that you use as
guides when inserting items. The scanner grabs the sheet and
automatically feeds it back and forth through the scanner several
times.
Calibration takes about a minute. Do not pull the paper out of the
scanner while calibration is in progress. When the calibration is
complete, the paper will be free so you can remove it.
ADJUSTING THE PAPER RETURN
The position of the paper return on the top of the scanner determines the
paper return path.
The alignment markers indicate the return path.
Rotate the paper return to set the return path.

To set the paper return, align the U-shaped setting with the arrow. The
paper can return back toward you, or be fed straight through. Make sure
the paper return is rotated fully so the setting marker aligns with the arrow.

CAUTION: Do not scan anything that can get stuck in or damage the
feed mechanism, including items containing paper sticky notes, glue,
white-out, wet ink, staples, or paper clips.
▼
Use this setting for standard paper
pages and other items that curl easily.
CHECKING IT OUT
You can scan many types of items, from small business cards to pages up to
30 inches (76.2 cm) long. The PaperPort software also has special settings
for scanning color photos and fine print (like the fine print on a contract).
The Scan Settings dialog box on page 12 shows the various settings.
To test the scanner and software:
■ Insert a test page, face up, into the page feed slot.
The scanner starts as soon as you insert the page. An image of the page
appears as it is being scanned.

Center the page.
Push the paper in until it
begins to curl upward.
NOTE: By changing the scan settings, you can choose exactly the right
setting for the item to be scanned. Memos, letters, and other black-andwhite items do not need color scanning; therefore, they scan quickly
and produce a smaller file size than color items. Color scanning takes
longer to capture the full range of colors on the item. In addition, a
color scan of an item produces a larger file.

SCANNING IN COLOR
Your PaperPort Strobe scanner is initially set to scan black-and-white items
that you would typically want to fax, file, or copy. To scan in color, you
reset the scanner’s scan settings to scan photos. As you can see, the Scan
Settings dialog box has several other settings for various types of scanning
tasks.

PAPERPORT STROBE FOR WINDOWS INSTALLATION GUIDE
Select Storing Color
Photos to scan in color.
To set the scanner to scan in color:
1. If the PaperPort software is running, click the Settings button on the
Command Bar (at the top of the window).
If the PaperPort software is not running, you can press the scanner
button on the left side of the scanner. This shortcut starts the software
and displays the scan settings immediately.
2. To scan in color, click Storing Color Photos. You can also use this
setting for any other color items such as color pages from articles.

Your PaperPort Strobe scanner is now set to scan in color. When you’re
finished scanning the color items, remember to change the scan setting
back to one of the other black-and-white settings (such as Faxing, Filing, or
Copying). Scanning in black-and-white is faster than in color and produces
smaller files.

MAINTENANCE AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION
The PaperPort Strobe scanner is designed for a long life of continuous use.
You need to clean the scanner only if images begin to lose their quality
when scanned. This chapter tells you how to clean the scanner and lists the
scanner specifications.
CLEANING THE PAPERPORT SCAN MECHANISM
If you scan items that have excessive amounts of dirt or dust, the scanner
can get dirty. To clean the scan mechanism, purchase a good-quality papercleaner page that is used for cleaning copy machines and fax machines.
Paper-cleaner pages are available from most office supply stores.
Follow the instructions in the paper-cleaner kit, and insert the papercleaner page into the scanner to clean its scan mechanism.
You may also need to re-calibrate the scanner if images appear to have black
or white lines running through them. Please see the online Help system for
the steps to recalibrate your scanner.
