Features of the CanoScan FB1200S
This scanner is a flatbed color scanner with 1200 dpi optical resolution incorporating the following
features.
• Fine Color Tones and High Resolution
Achieves a maximum optical resolution of 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi. The 1200 dpi primary scan
(horizontally across document) is realized with VAROS, the proprietary Canon system short
for VAriable Refraction Optical System. VAROS is a two-pass scanning technique
that combines the results of the scanning unit's first pass with a second pass that is optically
shifted by a half pixel. Reading 12 bits (4,096 colors) per red, green and blue (RGB) channel,
the scanner offers 12-bit or 8-bit output that reproduces brilliant tones at high resolution.
• Standby Power and Energy-Saving Features
This scanner, even with the power on, consumes only 12 watts or lower at standby and only
35 watts or lower at full operation. The standby feature means the scanner is always ready
to use. The product meets the Energy Star requirements for energy conservation.
• Convenient Start Button
The one-touch start button on the front of the scanner allows convenient use of the
accompanying software (ScanGear Toolbox CS/CanoScan Toolbox CS).
8
• Optional Film Adapter Unit
The FAU-S10 optional film adapter unit allows films and transparencies to be scanned
singly or in batches, increasing the versatility of this high-quality scanner. Refer to the
manual accompanying the FAU-S10.
• Optional Automatic Document Feeder
The ADF-S9 optional automatic document feeder permits hands-free operation for up
to 20 sheets, a convenient timesaving feature. See Automatic Document Feeder, in this
guide.

Connecting to the Computer
Connecting Two or More SCSI Devices
When connecting two or more SCSI devices (including this scanner), be careful of the following points.
About Daisy Chain Configurations
When connecting multiple SCSI devices to the computer, connect them in a series as shown
below. This configuration is called a “daisy chain”. Normally, several SCSI devices can be
connected to a single SCSI controller. (The number of SCSI devices and the requirements for
connection depend on the SCSI card standard and the type of SCSI devices involved.)
SCSI IDs and Terminator Settings
The SCSI ID and terminator settings for each device must be correct for them to operate.
• The SCSI ID
A SCSI ID is a unique identification number for each SCSI device in a daisy chain. No two
numbers can be the same.
20
*FB1200S_PG19-32
20
4/19/99, 7:33 PM
• Terminator Settings
The terminator marks the last device in a daisy chain. It tells the computer that “this is the
last device”. There are two types of terminator: a separate device that is attached to a SCSI
device or an On/Off switch built into the SCSI device. This scanner has a built-in terminator.
For a daisy chain to operate correctly, the terminator must be set to On for the last SCSI
device , and Off for all other SCSI devices. A typical daisy chain is shown below.
First

21
*FB1200S_PG19-32
21
4/19/99, 7:33 PM
WARNING • The SCSI ID does not have to follow the order of connection. As long as an ID is not
repeated, IDs between 0 and 6 can be used.
• SCSI device equipped computers usually have the following SCSI ID already assigned.
Refer to the manuals of the appropriate devices. Assign an unused SCSI ID to this scanner.
- For Windows
7: SCSI card or internal SCSI controller
- For Macintosh
0: Internal hard disk drive
3: Internal CD-ROM drive (Desktop model with an internal CD-ROM drive)
7: Macintosh CPU
• Ensure that you unplug the AC adapter from the scanner before you change the SCSI ID or
terminator settings. After resetting them, reconnect the AC adapter and restart the computer.
• How to Set the SCSI ID and Terminator
To set the SCSI ID and terminator on this scanner, adjust the dip switches found on the back
panel of the scanner.

There are many other types of SCSI connector on the market. When choosing a SCSI cable,
you must match the connector shapes, the SCSI cable standard and the impedance category.
Without all three correctly matched at both the computer and SCSI device ends, the
connection will not work. Check your computer’s SCSI connector to make sure it fits the
supplied SCSI interface cable. If it doesn’t, purchase a SCSI interface cable (high-impedance)
with connectors that fit into the connectors on your computer and scanner.

produces striped patterns
Gently press down on the document cover
Move the photo on the document glass to break the adhesion
Clean the document glass (See p. 76)
Solution 1:
Solution 2:
Solution 3:
Stripes appear on scan of publication
Cause:
Moiré effect from scan of publication at low resolution (print screen lines
highlighted by optical interference, producing striped patterns). This effect
may occur with particular combinations of printed matter screen line
densities and scanning resolutions
Rescan at different resolutions or turn on the [Descreen] option (See the
ScanGear CS-S or Plug-in Module CS-S Users Guide electronic manual).
Solution:
Whitened edges on image scanned from thick book
Cause:
Scanner employs an ultra-sensitive scanning unit that picks up ambient light
entering around the edges of the book
Cover the book and document glass with a dark cloth to prevent ambient
light from affecting the scan
Solution:
Slow scanning speed
Cause:
Solution:
Resolution is set higher than necessary
Lower the resolution.

Dampen a clean, soft cloth with water and wring the cloth well. Use the
well-wrung cloth to gently remove dirt and dust. Be particularly careful to
remove any traces of dirt or liquid from the document glass by wiping it
with a dry soft cloth.
• Do not dampen the connectors, ports or other metallic components on the scanner’s back
panel. Immediately remove any moisture that contacts these components by wiping them
with a dry cloth.
• Do not use a sodden cloth or apply a liquid directly to any portion of the scanner. Any
moisture that enters the interior, the underside of the document glass or the sensors,
may degrade image quality and lead to malfunctions.
• Never use substances containing alcohol, thinners or benzene on the equipment. These
substances may deform, discolor or dissolve the casing.
