INSTALLATION
Please unpack the Scanner carefully, and check the contents against the checklist. If any items
are missing or damaged, please contact your authorized local dealer immediately.
Precautions
•
Keep the Scanner out of direct sunlight. Direct exposure to the sun or excessive heat may
cause damage to the unit.
•
Do not install the Scanner in a humid or dusty place.
•
Be sure to use the proper AC power source.
•
Place the Scanner securely on an even, flat surface. Tilted or uneven surfaces may cause
mechanical or paper-feeding problems.
•
Retain the Scanner box and packing materials for shipping purposes.
2.1 SHIPPING BRACKET
The Scanner has a bracket that locks the carrier mechanism for transportation purposes. This
bracket must be put into the use position before using the Scanner.
If the power is turned on before the bracket has been removed the PAPER JAM light will turn on.
Before proceeding, turn the power off, disconnect all cables and follow the instructions below to
remove the shipping bracket.
2.1.1 REMOVING THE SHIPPING BRACKET
i).
Carefully place the Scanner in an upright position on its front.
ii).
Using a suitable screwdriver, remove the screw and pull out the shipping bracket.(See
Figure 2-1)
iii).
Put the shipping bracket into the use position with the short side extending into the Scanner
base and secure it with the screw.(See Figure 2-2)
iv).
Carefully place the Scanner back into its normal position.

2.1.2 REFITTING THE SHIPPING BRACKET
Whenever you need to move the Scanner to a new location it is advisable to refit the shipping
bracket to avoid causing damage to the Scanners’ internal mechanism. Please follow the
instructions below to refit the shipping bracket.
i). Turn off the Scanner power at the power on/off switch.
ii). Open the document cover.
iii). Turn off the Scanner.
Note: For steps (iv) to (vi) please refer to Figure 2-1 and 2-2.
iv). Carefully place the Scanner in an upright position on its front side.

position.
vi). Put the shipping bracket into the shipping position, with the long side extending into the
Scanner base. Secure it with the screw.
vii). Carefully place the Scanner back into its normal position.
2.2 SCSI INTERFACE DEVICE ID
When you have several devices on a SCSI chain, you may need to adjust the SCSI ID selector
setting located on the back of the Scanner. This setting assigns a specific "device ID" to the
Scanner. If the assignment conflicts with an existing SCSI device, please select a new ID. (See
Figure 2-3)
Note: The factory setting for Scanner is ID 6. Usually, ID 0 is assigned to an internal hard disk
drive, and ID 7, to SCSI adapter or host. ID 8 and 9 are not in actual use.
Using a suitable tool, turn the selector switch until the arrow points to the desired ID number.

MAINTENANCE
3.1 CLEANING THE ADF
Your Scanner is designed to be maintenance free. However, it still needs to be cleaned
occasionally to ensure optimum image quality and performance.
From time to time the pad assembly and feeding rollers may become contaminated with ink,
toner particles or paper dust. In this case the scanner may not feed documents smoothly or
several documents may feed at once. If this occurs please follow the cleaning procedures to
return your Scanner to its original state.
The cleaning procedures (Figure 3-1)
i).
Moisten a cotton swab with isoprophyl alcohol (95%). (Cleaner kits are available from
Fujitsu.)
ii).
Open the ADF unit by depressing the button • in front of the ADF unit, carefully open the
ADF to the left ‚. Wipe the feeding rollers by moving the swab from side to side. Rotate
the rollers forward with your finger and repeat the above cleaning procedures until the
rollers are clean. Be careful not to snag or damage the pick springs.
iii).
Wipe the pad in the direction from top to bottom. Be careful not to hook the pick springs.
iv).
Close the ADF unit. Your Scanner is now ready for use.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The Scanner will automatically perform a simple self-test each time it is turned on. This will help
spot major system errors in the Scanner itself.
When the test is initiated, the READY LED is flashing. When the test is completed, if no error
occur, the READY LED is steadily on.
If you have problems with the operation of your Scanner, please check the following
troubleshooting hints.
4.1 QUESTION AND ANSWER
Question:
The LED indicates that the Scanner is ready, but the Scanner does not respond
to the scan command form the host computer.
Answer:
a) Please check the signal cable is firmly seated,
and invoke the scan command again. If there is still no response, please reset
the Scanner by turning it off and then on again, and reboot your host computer
as well.
b) Check if the driver is correctly installed. You can use the DIAG.EXE file in
“Fujitsu Driver Kit” to check this out.
c) Try to select another port memory.
Question:
Paper becomes jammed during scanning.
Answer:
a) Open the ADF unit.
b) Pull out the jammed paper carefully.
c) Close the ADF unit.
Question:
More than one sheet of paper were fed into the Scanner.
Answer:
a) Open ADF unit.
b) Remove the multi-fed sheets of paper.
c) Close the ADF unit.
d) Flatten the corners and edges; loosen the paper before reloading it in the
paper guide.
e) Check the feeding roller condition and do the cleaning if necessary. (See
Chapter 3)
4-1
Question:
Paper becomes skewed in the Scanner.
Answer:
a) Check the feeding roller condition; do the cleaning if necessary. (See Section
3.1)
b) Use the paper guide when feeding the paper.
Question:
When I power on the Scanner, it makes noises and will not stand ready.
Answer:
There are two possibilities:
a) You forgot to remove the shipping retainer from the Scanner. Please remove
the shipping retainer first.
b) You did not place the Scanner on a flat desktop surface. This may cause the
Scanner to function improperly.
Question:
When I power on the Scanner, the lamp does not light.
Answer:
The possibilities are as follows:
a) The lamp is out of order. In that case, contact your authorized local dealer to
change the lamp. The life time of the lamp is about 5000 hours.
b) The fuse on main board of the Scanner is burned. Check the main board of
the Scanner. If the fuse is burned, put in a new fuse that is 250V/2A.
c) If the fuse burns again after the changing, it means the inverter of the lamp is
burned. Contact your authorized local dealer to replace the inverter.
Question:
Getting image from the Scanner is not a problem, but when scanning, the Scanner
or system will often crash.
Answer:
Please check
a) If the cable is firmly seated;
b) Only two SCSI terminators can be connected to your SCSI daisy chain. One is at
the end of the SCSI device, another is already in your host adapter.
4-2
Question:
While scanning, the Scanner often makes noises, or it scans back and forth.
Answer:
Please choose lower speed from the TWAIN user interface for low speed PC.
Question:
The scanned image always comes out to be too dark.
Answer:
a) Use your application to modify the Gamma setting to 2.2 and 1.8 for your
printer and monitor respectively.
b) Use Brightness setting from the TWAIN user interface to get a brighter
image.
Question:
The Scanner works well otherwise, but for the line art, the lines of which seem
much thicker than those of the original.
Answer:
Use the Brightness or Threshold setting to adjust the line art image.
