4.0 software or the TWAIN driver. You can use applications that
use the ISIS driver such as Kofax. You will not be able to scan
using the buttons on the scanner.

STEP 3: CONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY
Connect the power supply and power cord, and plug the power supply
into an electrical outlet.
To connect your Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) scanner:
1. Plug the power supply into the power port on the scanner.
Note: Only use the power supply (HEG42-240200-7L made by

and Turn on the Power.”
STEP 4: CONNECT THE USB CABLE AND TURN ON THE POWER
15
STEP 4: CONNECT THE USB CABLE AND TURN ON THE
POWER
The Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) scanner connects to any
available USB port. Check your computer’s manual for USB port
locations.
Note: You can connect the scanner to your computer while the
computer is running. You do not have to shut down your computer.
1. Remove any protective tape from the USB cable.
2. Plug the USB cable into the USB port on the scanner and then into
a USB port on the computer.
USB
The USB symbol identifies the location of the USB port on your
computer. If the plug does not attach easily, make sure that you are
plugging it in correctly. Do not force the plug into the connection.
You can also connect the scanner to a USB port on the computer’s
keyboard if it has one, or to a USB hub. If you use a USB hub, it
must have its own power supply already plugged into an electrical
outlet.
16
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Note: If you have not installed the scanner driver, unplug the USB
cable from the computer and install the software now. When the
driver installation is complete, a message tells you when to connect the
scanner.
3. Turn on the power switch, located on the back of the scanner to the
left of the power port.
The status light comes on and flashes indicating that the scanner is
receiving power.
If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2, and have plugged the
USB cable into a USB 1.1 port, an information bubble may open
explaining that “A HI-SPEED USB device is plugged into a nonHI-SPEED USB hub”. Plug the USB cable into a USB 2.0 port (if
available) or just disregard the message. If you leave it plugged into
the USB 1.1 port, your scanner may scan a bit slower than the 33
pages per minute, and 66 images per minute available with a USB
2.0 port.
Your computer then recognizes that a scanner has been plugged into
the USB port and automatically loads the appropriate software to
run the scanner.
Do not proceed until you receive a message that your computer has
found the new hardware, or updated the driver database. If your
computer is running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you will see a
message similar to the following.
STEP 4: CONNECT THE USB CABLE AND TURN ON THE POWER

Scanning
If you selected the recommended Full Install choice for your scanner’s
driver (see page 11), you can use several different methods to scan with
your scanner. Each method scans equally well, so use the one with
appropriate options for the item you are scanning.
■
Scanner Buttons—When you press the Simplex or Duplex button,
documents are scanned using the scan settings indicated by the LED
number. The scanned images are then sent to a software application
(known as the Destination Application) or to a storage folder on your
computer. See “Load and Scan Documents” on page 25.
■
OneTouch—Use this option to scan from the computer screen.
Open the OneTouch scan panel, put the document in the scanner,
then click the icon on the OneTouch panel. See “Scan from the
OneTouch Button Panel” on page 28.
■
TWAIN Interface—This option uses your scanner’s TWAIN
interface to scan. Select the TWAIN scan settings, put the document
in the scanner, then click a button on the TWAIN interface window.
See “Scanning with the TWAIN Interface” on page 99.
■
Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)—This option uses the
Microsoft Windows set of choices for scanning. Select the WIA scan
settings, put the document in the scanner, then click a button on the
WIA window. Scanning with WIA is only available if your computer
is running Windows XP or Windows Vista. See “Scanning with the
Windows Image Acquisition” on page 114.
■
ISIS Interface—This option uses ISIS driver to scan. Select the ISIS
scan settings, put the document in the scanner, then use your ISIS
application to scan using the ISIS Interface. See “Scanning with the
ISIS Interface” on page 119.
LOAD AND SCAN DOCUMENTS
25
LOAD AND SCAN DOCUMENTS
When you press either the Simplex or Duplex button, documents are
scanned using the scan settings indicated by the LED number. The
scanned images are then sent to a software application (known as the
Destination Application) or to a storage folder on your computer.
Note: Always remove any staples or paper clips from documents
before inserting them into the scanner. Staples and paper clips can jam
the feed mechanism and scratch the internal components. Do not scan
any document with labels, stickers or Post-It™ notes on the pages. If a
label, sticker or Post-It note comes off during the scanning process, the
item can get stuck in the scanner. Misuse as described here will void
your scanner’s warranty.
1. Make sure the output tray is fully extended, and adjust the paper
guide for the width of paper.
26
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
2. Load the documents with their tops into the automatic document
feeder.
For Simplex (one-sided) scans, load the documents face down. To
maintain the original order of the documents when they are sent to
the Destination Application, the scanner starts at the first page and
scans to the last page.
For Duplex (two-sided) scans, the documents can be face up or
down because both sides are scanned.
3. Check the LED number to make sure you’re using the scan setting
you want.
To choose a new scan setting, press the Destination Selector button.
Press the Destination Selector to cycle
through the scan settings to select the
one you want.

VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
ABOUT THE ONETOUCH BUTTON PANEL’S NAMES AND ICONS
The button names, such as PDF, eMail or Fax, indicate the original
factory settings for a button. For example, the eMail button is set up to
scan documents then immediately attach them to a new email message
in Microsoft Outlook Express®. But you can change the name, the
Destination Application, and any of the other aspects of the button.
A question mark for a button, such as shown for button 5, means your
computer does not have appropriate software for the initial factory
settings (Fax software in this example). In that case, you would probably
want to change the name and Destination Application to something
else. For example, if you scan a lot of documents that have faint images,
such as hand-drawn sketches in light pencil, you might want to change
the button’s name to Sketches, and the Destination Application to
Microsoft Paint, or some other drawing program.
A folder icon for a button, such as shown for button 7, means that the
button is set up to archive the scanned item. The scanner sends the
scanned image directly to a folder without opening the image first in a
Destination Application. Use the archiving option when you don’t need
to see the scanned images, but simply want to store them in a folder.
The default archive folder for button 7 is at C:\Documents and
Settings\<your user name>\My Documents\My OneTouch
Archive\PDF Documents. It is named PDF Documents because
button 7 is set to scan to the PDF file format. If you set up an archive
button to scan to another format, such as TXT, the folder would be
named TXT Documents. To see a scanned image that has been
archived, open it using the appropriate application for the format. For
example, to see a TXT image, open it with Microsoft Word or WordPad
See “Configuring the OneTouch Buttons” on page 34 to change the
settings of the buttons on the OneTouch Button Panel.

THE DEFAULT ONETOUCH SETTINGS ON YOUR SCANNER
Based on the recommended installation of PaperPort and the scanner
driver, your scanner is pre-configured to scan items for various basic
tasks, such as email or fax, then send the scanned image to an
appropriate, pre-selected Destination Application. The following table
shows these factory-default settings.
If PaperPort, OmniPage or the OneTouch OmniPage module is not
installed, then the options for sending to word processing applications,
such as Microsoft Word will not be available.

IMAGE FORMATS
Select an image file format for photos, artwork or other documents that
you want to save as images. BMP and TIFF are standard image file
formats generally used if you want to do additional image processing,
such as photo touch-up or color correction. Both of those file formats
tend to be larger than the JPEG format.
Because JPEG image files can be reduced in size, the JPEG format is
often used for images on web pages, or if file size might be a problem
when electronically sending the files. JPEG files are reduced in size by
lowering their image quality, and you can select the degree of quality for
your scanned images from the JPEG file format icon.
The PDF format is often used to create images of text pages. You may
want to select PDF as the page format when scanning text pages that do
not require OCR processing or other processing. The PDF format is
also used to put multi-page documents on web sites as pdf-readable
files. As with the JPEG option, the PDF format can be reduced in size
or quality.
Note: The two other PDF formats—nPDF and sPDF—are for
scanning with OCR processing and with the ability to search the
scanned text. See the next section, “Text Formats,” and also
“Scanning with sPDF or nPDF and Searching for Text” on page 81
for details.
To select a JPEG or PDF file size:
1. Select JPG or PDF as the page format.
2. Right-click on the JPG or PDF icon.
A menu opens.

3. Choose the file size/image quality option for your scanned images.
Minimize Size—Smallest file size, lowest image quality.
Normal—Medium file size, some loss of image quality.
Maximum Quality—Largest file size, no loss of image quality.
Your selection pertains only to the button currently selected on the
OneTouch Properties window. Other buttons that have JPG or
PDF selected as the Page Format are not affected, so you can set the
JPEG or PDF file size/image quality independently for each button.
4. Click OK or Apply on the OneTouch Properties window.
TEXT FORMATS
Selecting the text format option also selects OCR processing as an
automatic step for scanning. Therefore, when you scan a document
with the text format selected, the text portions of the document are
automatically converted to editable text. See “Scanning with Optical
Character Recognition (OCR)” on page 79.
Select a text format for documents with text or numbers, such as a
business letter, report, or spreadsheet. The text format icon has several
file formats available, depending on the Destination Application you
select.
The specific file format is the file name extension on the text format
icon.
The specific text format; this example
is for Microsoft Word format (.doc).
As you select Destination Applications that are text applications, the
text format icon changes to match the file type of the application. In
some cases, the Destination Application supports several file types, and
you can right-click on the icon to choose the particular file type for that
application.

See “eMail Properties” on page 46 for details about attaching
scanned documents to your email messages.
■
Storage and CD-R/W is for either storing scanned documents
in a folder, or sending them to a CD burner to create a CD
containing the scanned documents. See “Transferring Scanned

Use enhanced folder browser—Select this option if you want to
save your scans to a network location that is not a mapped drive on
your computer.
Create copies of scanned documents—Sometimes the image of a
scanned document is only saved as a temporary file until its
Destination Application is finished using it. In those cases you may
or may not want an additional, permanent copy saved on your hard
drive.
For example, if you scan a picture to an email application, the
scanned image is saved as a temporary file, then attached to the
email, and the email is sent. But because you already have the
original picture, you may not want to also save a permanent file of
that image as well. The same situation may occur when you scan
directly to a printer or scan to a fax application. You already have
the paper version (and in the case of a printer, you would have two
paper copies—the original and the scanned printed version) so
there’s no need for an electronic file too. However, by selecting this
Create copies of scanned documents option, you can choose to
save permanent copies of those types of images on your hard drive.
The copies will be saved in the folder specified in the Folder Copy
Options section (see the figure on page 54 and the description
below).
This option is not available if either the Document Management
or Storage and CD-R/W options are selected because, by default,
file copies for those types of Destination Applications are already
automatically saved in the folder for copies.
For that reason, this option is not available for the default settings
of Buttons 1 and 2. Those buttons have PaperPort as their
Destination Applications, and PaperPort is a Document
Management software.
Likewise, the option is also not available for the default setting of
Buttons 7 (Archive) because it is set as Transfer to Storage with the
Destination Application type set as Storage and CD-R/W.

Click the Browse button and find the folder for the copies. Select
the grouping option for the documents. The Group by button
option groups the documents under the name of the OneTouch
button. For example, if the button is named Printer, the documents
are grouped under the name Printer. Group by type arranges the
scanned documents by the type of file, such as .doc or .jpg. If you
also want to group them by date you can choose the week and
month options.

To create a new configuration:
1. Open the OneTouch Properties window and make sure the Multi
Function tab is selected.
2. Scroll through the applications in the Select Destination list and
click the type of application for which you want to create a new
scan configuration.
When you create a new scan configuration, it will appear for the

5. Select scan settings for the new scan configuration.
Mode—Select a scanning mode:
Black&White to scan in black and white. For example, letters and
memos are usually scanned in black and white. This scan mode
produces the smallest file size.
GrayScale to scan items such as documents containing drawings or
black and white photographs. The scanning produces an image of
up to 256 shades of gray.
Color to scan color photographs and other color items. Color scans
have the largest file size.
Resolution—Drag the slider to the right or left to adjust the dots
per inch (dpi) of the resolution. The maximum resolution is 600
dpi; the minimum is 50 dpi. The higher the dpi setting, the
sharper and clearer the scanned image. However, higher dpi
settings take longer to scan and produce larger files for the scanned
images.
Brightness and Contrast—Sometimes an item is scanned with
the brightness and contrast set too light or too dark. For example,
a note written with a light pencil may need to be scanned darker to
improve legibility.
Brightness refers to the lightness or darkness of the image.
Contrast is the range between the darkest and lightest portions of
the image. The greater the contrast, the more difference between
the lighter and darker shades in the image.
Drag the sliders to the right or left to adjust the brightness and
contrast of the scanned image. The Contrast setting does not
apply to the Black&White mode.

page dimensions in the boxes. The maximum size is 8.5" x 14". The
units of measurement can be inches or millimeters. Click the name
of the units, inches or millimeters, to toggle between them.
Improvements and Settings—Only the options that apply to the
selected Destination Application are available.
AutoCrop to Original—Select this option to let the scanner
automatically determine the size of the item being scanned. For
example, if you scan a 5 by 7 inch photo, the scanner will
determine the size of the photo.
When using the AutoCrop to Original option, always use the paper
guides on the scanner so the page is not skewed. Skewed pages may
not crop properly.
For single-sided scans, the scan area is the size of the image. For
double-sided scans, the scan area is the size of the larger of the
two areas on the front and back of the page.
Reduce Moire Patterns—Moire patterns are wavy, rippled lines
that sometimes appear on the scanned images of photographs or
illustrations, particularly newspaper and magazine illustrations.
62
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Selecting Reduce Moire Patterns will limit or eliminate moire
patterns in the scanned image. This option is only available for
the Grayscale or Color Mode at 300 dpi or less.
Straighten Image—Select this option to let the scanner
automatically determine if a page is skewed, and then straighten
its image. The scanner detects page edges and can sense when
the page is fed through at an angle. However, if the page is fed
through at too great an angle, the image may not scan correctly.
In that case, re-scan the page using the paper guides to feed the
paper in straight.
Invert Image—Only available for Black&White Mode, this
option reverses the black and whites of an image.
Original Image
Inverted Image
Duplex—Scan both sides of the page. If this option is not
selected, the scanner will scan the front side of the page only.
Note: Because you can set Duplex and Simplex for the OneTouch
buttons, there could be a conflict when you press the Simplex or
Duplex button on the scanner. Regardless of the OneTouch setting,
the scanner button always takes precedence. In other words, even if
the LED number on the scanner has a setting for Duplex, when you
press the Simplex scanner button, the scanner scans in Simplex mode,
and vice versa.

Skip Blank Originals—Skips pages that are completely blank.
Typically you use this option when you will scan a stack of twosided pages which have a number of blank sides. This option is
only available for Duplex scanning in Black and White mode.
Color Filter—Color filter is the ability of your scanner to
automatically remove a color from a scanned item. For example,
if you are scanning a letter with a red watermark, you can
choose to filter out the red so the scanned letter just shows the
text and not the red watermark. Color filter applies to
Black&White or Grayscale Mode.

SCANNING WITH OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION (OCR)
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is like a printer in reverse.
Instead of printing what’s on the screen onto paper, OCR converts text
and numbers on a scanned page into editable text and numbers. You can
then work with the text and numbers to edit, spell check, change font or
type size, sort, calculate, and so forth.
Note: Visioneer recommends that all OCR processing use the original
factory settings for OCR scanning that came with your scanner. When
scanning with other settings, use at least 300 dpi for the resolution. If
the original documents are of poor quality and have small type, 400
dpi can be used as the maximum resolution.
The OneTouch OmniPage Module or the OmniPage Pro software must
be installed on your computer in order to use the OCR options with the
OneTouch 4.0 software and your Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) scanner.
OneTouch 4.0 and OmniPage work together to combine scanning with
OCR processing into one integrated step.
The OneTouch OmniPage Module was automatically installed when
you installed your driver, the OmniPage Pro software is on the Disc 2
CD that you received with your scanner. The OneTouch OmniPage
Module and the OmniPage Pro Software can both be installed on your
computer at the same time, however, the features in the OneTouch
OmniPage Module will take precedence over the OmniPage software
features when using OneTouch 4.0. The “OneTouch OmniPage MiniGuide” is available on the Disc 1 installation CD.
Note: If you have uninstalled the OneTouch OmniPage module or
the OmniPage Pro software from your computer, items scanned as a
text format are still converted with the OCR process, however, the
options available with the process are then limited.

SCANNING WITH SPDF OR NPDF AND SEARCHING FOR TEXT
Searchable PDF (sPDF) and Normal PDF (nPDF) are special forms of
an Adobe PDF file. sPDF converts scanned text into the PDF format
with text search and OCR capabilities. nPDF has those same features,
plus you can edit the text in an nPDF image if you have a PDF editing
program.The two PDF formats can also produce images with different
image quality, so you may want to experiment with them to determine
which is better for your scanned documents. sPDF and nPDF are only
available as page format options if you have the OneTouch OmniPage
Module or OmniPage Pro software installed on your computer.
To scan with sPDF or nPDF:
1. Open the OneTouch Properties window.
2. Using the arrows, choose a OneTouch button to use for the sPDF
or nPDF scanning.
3. Select a Destination Application that uses a text format as the page
format.

Windows XP and Windows Vista store all files waiting to be burned to
a CD by the automatic CD writing wizard. If other files are also
waiting in this location, they will get written with the OneTouch
files on the CD.
86
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Note: When scanning items to burn to a CD, you should always use
one of the factory-set default configurations, or a custom
configuration specifically set up for CD burning. The default
configurations are already set up to send the scanned images to the
proper storage location where the Windows XP and Windows Vista
CD writing wizards can find the files to burn to the CD. Likewise,
when you create a custom configuration for CD burning, the
OneTouch software will automatically make sure the storage
location is correct.
To create a custom configuration for CD burning, select Burn to CD
as the Destination Application, then click the New button and create
the new configuration. You won’t need to select a storage location
because it will be correctly preset for you by the OneTouch software.
Note, however, that if you have created other custom configurations
with different storage locations (for example, see “Scanning to
Multiple Folders” on page 67), do not use them for the Burn to CD
Destination Application. Otherwise, the Windows XP or Windows
Vista CD writing wizard will not be able to find the images to burn
onto the CD.

SCANNING WITH THE TWAIN INTERFACE
You can scan from any TWAIN scanning application instead of
scanning from the OneTouch buttons on your scanner or using the
OneTouch button panel.
A NOTE ABOUT THE TWAIN STANDARD
Your scanner uses the TWAIN interface to scan photographs and
documents. TWAIN is a widely recognized standard that computers use
to receive images from scanners, digital cameras, and other digital
devices. The TWAIN scanning interface can be accessed from any
TWAIN scanning application you have installed on the computer.
Applications such as Nuance PaperPort and ArcSoft PhotoImpression,
which were provided with your scanner, and many other applications,
will use the TWAIN interface for scanning. This section specifically
describes how to use the features of the TWAIN interface for scanning,
however, the instructions in this section may use the PaperPort software
as an example only.
Refer to the User Guide you received with your other scanning
application for instructions on setting up that application to access the
TWAIN interface. As previously stated, the scanning method is the
same, but you will need to refer to your product's user guide for
instructions on how to access the scanner and how file handling works.
Instructions for setting up the PaperPort software to access the TWAIN
interface is provided in this User’s Guide.

THE TWAIN INTERFACE OPTIONS
This TWAIN interface is an example of the window you will see for
your scanner. Some of the options on the window may not be available,
and will be greyed out if they are not available with your scanner.
The options on the Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) TWAIN
interface are:
Mode—Select a scanning mode:
Black&White to scan in black and white. The scanning pixels
are all the same size and are either black or white. Use this
setting for letters, memos, and other black and white material.
This scan mode produces the smallest file size.
GrayScale to scan items such as documents containing
drawings or black and white photographs. The scanning
produces an image of up to 256 shades of gray. You can also
scan a color document to turn its colors into gray shades. The
file size is about one third that of a color scan.
Color to scan magazine articles, photographs, and other color
images in full color. Color scans have the largest file size.
104
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
Resolution—Drag the slider to the right or left to adjust the dots
per inch (dpi) of the resolution. The maximum resolution is 600
dpi; the minimum is 50 dpi. This option determines the amount of
detail you can see in the scanned image. The higher the dpi setting,
the sharper and clearer the scanned image. However, higher dpi
settings take longer to scan and produce larger files for the scanned
images. Usually the higher resolution settings are used for precision
work, such as photographs or fine artwork.
Brightness and Contrast—Sometimes an image is scanned with
the brightness and contrast set too light or too dark. For example, a
note written with a light pencil may need to be scanned darker to
improve legibility. Increasing or decreasing the brightness makes the
scanned image lighter or darker. Contrast refers to the difference
between the lighter and darker portions of the image. Increasing the
contrast emphasizes the difference between the lighter and darker
portions, decreasing the contrast de-emphasizes that difference.
Contrast is used in conjunction with brightness.
AutoCrop to Original—Select this option to let the scanner
automatically determine the size of the item being scanned. For
example, if you scan a 5" x 7" photo, the scanner will determine the
size of the photo, and the scan area is the size of that photo.
When using the AutoCrop to Original option, always use the paper
guides on the scanner so the page is not skewed.
Duplex—Scan both sides of the page. If this option is not selected,
the scanner will only scan the side of the page facing down when
you insert it into the scanner.
Filter—The Filter is the ability of your scanner to automatically
remove a color from a scanned item. For example, if you are
scanning a letter with a red watermark, you can choose to filter out

the red so the scanned letter just shows the text and not the red
watermark. The Filter option applies to Black&White or GrayScale
Mode.

red filtered out.
Reduce Moire Patterns—Moire patterns are wavy, rippled lines
that sometimes appear on the scanned images of photographs or
illustrations, particularly newspaper and magazine illustrations.
Selecting Reduce Moire Patterns will limit or eliminate moire
patterns in the scanned image. This option is only available from 50
to 200dpi.

displayed on the right side of the window.
Note: If you preview when scanning a stack of documents, the first
page of the stack feeds through the ADF for the preview. After
adjusting the scanner settings, replace that page on the stack so it is
scanned with the rest of the pages.
6. Adjust settings of the previewed image as desired:
■ Change the button selection for the type of image.
■ Adjust the custom settings; refer to the next section, “Fine
Tuning Your Scans”.
■ Change the size of the scanned image. To do this, click and hold
the mouse pointer over one of the four sizing-boxes on the
corners of the previewed image. Then drag the box to increase or
decrease the size of the image.
7. Preview the image again. When you are satisfied with the image,
click the Scan button.

Maintenance
This section contains information on maintenance, troubleshooting,
uninstalling, scanner specifications, and spare parts.
CLEANING THE AUTOMATIC DOCUMENT FEEDER
You may need to clean the ADF feed mechanism if your documents do
not feed easily into the ADF, or several feed in at the same time.
To clean the ADF:
1. Wet a soft cloth with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol (95%).
2. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body to
open the automatic document feeder cover.
3. Wipe the feed roller from side to side. Rotate the roller to clean its
entire surface.
Note: Please be careful when cleaning the roller. The roller is designed
to rotate in one direction only. As you’re cleaning the roller, make sure
it rotates easily, and continue rotating it in that direction while wiping
it clean. Do NOT force the roller to rotate in the opposite direction.
Forcing the roller to rotate will damage it, and may cause the scanner
to feed pages incorrectly.
4. Wipe the pad from top to bottom. Be careful not to snag the swab
on the springs on either side of the pad.
5. Close the cover when you’re finished.
CLEARING PAPER JAMS
121
CLEARING PAPER JAMS
If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic
Document Feeder, a warning dialog box opens after a few moments.
To clear a paper jam:
1. Press the ADF cover release on the top-left of the scanner body to
open the automatic document feeder cover.
2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
To reduce the number of paper jams, smooth and straighten the paper
before scanning and adjust the guides to the paper size.
122
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
REPLACING THE ADF PAD ASSEMBLY
The ADF pad will wear out and is designed to be a user-replaceable
part. Problems with documents feeding into the ADF is an indication
that the pad is wearing thin.
See the “Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) Scanner Parts List” on
page 130 for ordering information.
To replace the ADF Pad assembly:
1. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body to
open the automatic document feeder cover.
2. Squeeze the plastic clamps that hold the pad assembly in place and
lift the pad up and out
3. Reverse the procedure to replace the new pad into its slots.
TROUBLESHOOTING
123
TROUBLESHOOTING
In addition to the troubleshooting information contained in this
section, please see the Readme file on your installation CD. The
Readme file contains additional information that may help you
diagnose problems with the scanner.
If you try the troubleshooting procedures described in this section and
in the Readme file, and the scanner still has problems, you may have a
malfunctioning scanner. Refer to the technical support card that you
received with your scanner. 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:
■
Are the cables loose or not plugged in securely? Inspect the cable
connections. Make sure the cables are plugged in securely.
■
Is the scanner’s status light on? Turn on the scanner’s power. If the
status light doesn’t come 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 plug the scanner into a USB hub? If you’re using a USB
hub to connect the scanner, the hub must have its own power supply.
If the hub does not have its own power supply, plug the scanner into
a USB port on the computer.
■
Did you select another scanning source in the PaperPort Scan
Pane? If you use multiple devices with your computer, you may have
selected another source for images. Start the PaperPort software and
click the Scan icon, then make sure Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe
XP 470) is selected as the scanner.
124
VISIONEER PATRIOT 470 (STROBE XP 470) SCANNER USER’S GUIDE
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: With AutoCrop to Original selected, sometimes I get
blank pages, or pages with lines. What’s wrong?
The pages were probably scanned in crooked, or skewed. To use
AutoCrop to Original, the pages must be scanned in straight. Adjust the
paper guides on the scanner so pages feed in straight.
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: The installation will not complete successfully. If
installation finishes, the scanner’s OneTouch 4.0 options do not
seem to work properly. What do I do?
A likely cause is that some driver programs are already installed on your
computer for another scanner. They are interfering with the installation
and OneTouch options, and you need to remove those other drivers and
re-install your Visioneer Patriot 470 (Strobe XP 470) scanner. Please see
the documentation that you received with the other scanner for the
steps to remove its driver programs. You can also use the basic steps in
the section “How to Uninstall Your Scanner” on page 127, but in Step
3, instead of uninstalling OneTouch 4.0, uninstall the other scanner’s
driver programs. After uninstalling the other scanner’s driver programs,
uninstall OneTouch 4.0 using the steps on page 127, then reinstall it
using the steps on page 7.
TROUBLESHOOTING
125
STATUS LIGHT TROUBLESHOOTING CODES
The status light indicates the current state of the scanner. A green status
light indicates the normal state of the scanner. A red status light
indicates that there is a hardware issue. Descriptions of the most
common patterns are listed below.
NORMAL OPERATION
■
Blinking green: indicates the scanner is waking up from power
saving and preparing to scan.
■
Steady green: indicates the scanner is ready to scan.
ERROR CODES
If your scanner experiences hardware problems, the status light will
blink red, and the LED flashes an “E” and the error code number.
The LED blinks back and forth
between “E” and the error code
number (such as 6).
The red light flashes the number
of times as the error code (6 in
this example).
The E-code number indicates what the hardware issue is. Use the table
listed on the next page as a reference for resolving hardware issues.
In all cases you should turn off your scanner and check your scanner
setup. Open the scanner and make sure your input tray is fully seated in
the scanner casing, make sure your ADF pad is securely snapped in
place, verify the connections to the PC and to the wall.
