Software applications for scanning
Your scanner is controlled through scan, copy or imaging software installed
on your PC.
Optimal full featured scanning functionality is obtainable through scan
and copy software specifically developed for compatibility with your scanner
model. See the scanner manufacturer’s website for information on scanner
software and compatible third-party applications.
Running applications from the scanner panel
Normally you would control the scanner from your PC through your scan
software user interface. However, your scanner also supports one-touch
buttons that enable you to trigger scanner compatible software from the
scanner panel. Configuration of your one-touch buttons is controlled
through WIDEsystem. Please refer to the on-line help in WIDEsystem and
your compatible scanner software for instructions.

Batch scanning
Batch scanning involves jobs where you want to feed and scan a whole set
of originals that require equal scan settings. The basic steps are:
1. Set your scan settings (size, type, image adjustments..) for the batch.
Your settings will apply to ALL the documents in the batch.
2. Set the scan software into Batch Mode. This will tell the scanner to start
scanning as soon as the document is fed so you don’t need to trigger
the scan.
3. Choose Automatic loading (optional) - for fast and effective loading.
Read you scan software’s on-line help pages for specific information on
batch scanning with the application.
NOTE: The availability of Batch scanning options will depend on your
scan/copy software and its level of compatibility with the scanner model.

About scanner maintenance
Scanner maintenance will ensure optimal performance of your scanner. There are three basic maintenance tasks.
1. Cleaning
Keep your scanner clean – the next section describes how to thoroughly clean the internal scan area. How often you need to clean will depend on how often
and the types of media you scan. If your work primarily involves scanning newspapers and old blueprints you may need to clean more often than users who
only scan brochures and new drawings. Be sure to clean the scanner when results are not optimal. Particles of dust in the scan area can sometimes be the
sole cause of streaks in the end result.
See more under the section Cleaning the scan area
2. Calibration
Calibrate the scanner if your output is not optimal and cleaning (above) does not remedy the problem. Calibration will renew the scanner’s original color and
BW precision. Scanner Calibration is easy to perform. To run, you insert a Calibration Sheet, and start the Scanner Maintenance program. The rest is done
by the program. Make sure the scanner is clean before calibrating.
See more under the section Calibration – Scanner Maintenance program.
3. Replacing the glass plate
This should be carried out when a worn glass plate affects your results. You may need a new glass plate if streaks still appear on the image even after
cleaning the glass. See more under the section Replacing the glass plate.
Cleaning the scan area
How often you should clean your scanner will largely depend on how much you use the scanner and the condition of your documents. Generally, be sure to
clean at least once a month and always right before important jobs that require a high degree of precision.
You must clean the following scanner parts/areas:

Stitching problems – Image sections
misaligned (at points between the sensors
-overlapping pixels)
One or more thin vertical lines (in the
direction of paper feeding) show up in the
scanned image, but not in the original

2.
Check in your scanning application that your size settings are either for Auto detection or correspond to the size of the whole
original.
Check in your scanning application that you are loading the original correctly. Be sure to align the center of the original with
the scanner’s center arrow marking.
Remove the original from the scanner and calibrate the scanner with the Scanner Maintenance program. Calibration includes
correction of stitching errors.
If the problem persists after calibration – Your sensors may need readjusting. Summon your technical service provider.
This is often caused by an unclean glass plate. Even a single spec of dirt in the wrong spot on the glass plate can apply a streak
along your entire scan. To remedy:
1. Clean your glass plate and rollers as described in this users’ guide.
2. Most dirt on the glass plate is introduced by the documents that are passed against it. Wipe clean the document with a dry
lint-free cloth before feeding the document into the scanner.
3. If the problem persists after cleaning, calibrate the scanner with the scanner maintenance program. The scanner may have
memorized dirt specs and you need to recalibrate after dirt-removal.
4. If the problem persists after cleaning and calibration –Check the glass plate for scratches. A damaged glass plate should be
replaced. Obtain a new glass plate from your service provider. Follow the steps in the user’s guide to replace the glass plate
with a new one.
