Setting up the Scanner
Initializing the Scanner
Before connecting the scanner to your computer, follow the steps
below to make sure that the scanner is operating properly.
1. Place the scanner on a flat, stable surface.
2. Turn the transportation lock on the right side to the unlocked
position using a coin or similar object, as shown below.
Note:
Return the transportation lock to the locked position when
transporting the scanner.
3. If the power cord is not attached to the scanner, connect it to
the AC inlet on the back of the scanner and plug the other end
into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
c
Caution:
It is not possible to change the scanner's voltage. If the label
on the back of the scanner does not show the correct voltage
for your country, contact your dealer. Do not plug in the
power cord.
4. Open the document cover so you can see the operation of the
scanner during initialization (startup).

8. Turn off the scanner.
If the scanner does not work as described, make sure the power
cord is firmly plugged in and that you have released the
transportation lock, then try again.
Note:
The scanner turns off the fluorescent lamp if it does not receive any
commands from the computer within 15 minutes.

1-10
Caution:
Whenever you turn off the scanner, wait at least 10 seconds before
plugging it back in. Rapidly plugging and unplugging the
scanner can damage the scanner.
Setting up the Scanner
Connecting the Scanner (SCSI) to Your
Computer
1
Before you connect the scanner to your computer using the SCSI
interface, read the following sections to determine your systems.
SCSI Board
❏ For PC users:
You need to install the board and SCSI driver software if you
have not done so. Check your system documentation to see
whether the driver is included with your operating system
already, or if necessary use the documentation included with
the board and SCSI driver software for installation
instructions.
❏ For Macintosh users:
Your Macintosh may or may not have SCSI ports, depending
on which model you own. Check your system documentation
whether you need to install the SCSI board and driver
Daisy Chain
The SCSI interface allows you to connect up to seven devices (such
as scanner, hard disk, CD-ROM, and so on) to the computer, in
what is called a “daisy chain” arrangement. Only the first SCSI
device in a daisy chain is connected to the computer; each of the
other devices is connected to another SCSI device.
SCSI Cables
You may need to purchase SCSI cables before setting up your SCSI
daisy chain. Be sure the SCSI cable connectors are suitable for your
hardware, depending on the maker of your SCSI device and SCSI
interface board.
Setting up the Scanner
1-11
SCSI ID number
Each device has a SCSI ID number. The scanner’s default SCSI ID
number is 2. See “Changing the SCSI ID Number or SCSI Board”
in your Online Reference Guide to learn how to change the SCSI ID
number.
Terminator
The scanner has a built-in internal terminator (always ON), which
allows SCSI devices to communicate properly with each other.
Make sure the scanner is the last device in the daisy chain and the
other devices in the daisy chain are terminated properly.
Connect the scanner to your computer or to another SCSI device
as follows:
Note:
The combination of connectors on the SCSI interface cable you need
varies depending on the maker of your SCSI device and SCSI interface
board.
1. Make sure the scanner, computer, and all other SCSI devices
are turned off and unplugged from the power source.
c
1-12
Caution:
Do not connect the scanner to the computer or other devices
while they are turned on as damage may occur.
Setting up the Scanner
2. Connect one end of the interface cable to the scanner SCSI
connector until the locks on both sides snap in.
rotary switch
AC inlet
SCSI interface connector
Note:
❏ To connect the scanner to a PC using SCSI-2, the length of the
cable must not exceed 3 meters.
❏ Make sure no other interface is used.
3. Connect the other end of the cable to the SCSI port of your
computer or another SCSI device.
Note:
The SCSI port on the Macintosh is the larger port with the SCSI
icon over it.
4. Plug in the power cords of your computer, scanner, and other
external SCSI devices.
Note:
Before turning on your system, be sure to read “Power-on/off sequence”
following.
Setting up the Scanner
1-13
1
Power-on/off sequence
Keep the following in mind every time you turn on your computer
and SCSI devices, including the scanner.
❏ When turning on SCSI devices in a daisy chain as well as your
computer, always start from the SCSI device farthest away
from the computer. Turn them on one by one in sequence until
you reach the computer which should be the last one to turn
on. (If you turn on a SCSI device after the computer, the SCSI
or the computer may not work properly.) Similarly, when you
want to turn off the system, start from your computer and end
with the SCSI device farthest away from the computer.
❏ Do not turn the scanner off and back on while using your
computer, otherwise the scanner may not work properly.
❏ For Windows 95, 98 or 2000 users:
The first time you turn on the computer after turning on the
scanner, the “Add New Hardware Wizard” dialog box
appears to prompt you to install the scanner driver. Follow
the instructions in Chapter 2, “Installing the Software,” to
install the scanner driver.
1-14
Setting up the Scanner
Connecting the Scanner (USB) to Your
Computer
1
Make sure that your system meets the requirements. (See
“Technical Specifications” in your Online Reference Guide for
details.) Then connect the scanner to your computer or USB hub
as follows:
Note for Macintosh users:
Be sure to install the scanner software before connecting the scanner to
your computer. See Chapter 2, “Installing the Software,” for details.
Note:
If you connect the scanner through more than one hub, your system may
not work properly. In this case, try connecting the scanner directly to
the computer’s USB port. Also, your system may not work properly if
you use a USB cable other than that supplied by EPSON.
1. Connect one end of the cable (Type B) to the USB port on the
back of the scanner.
AC inlet
USB interface connector
Setting up the Scanner
1-15
2. Connect the other end of the cable (Type A) to the USB port
on your computer, or USB hub.
Note:
❏ USB cables enable you to connect the scanner whether your
computer is on or off. If you connect the scanner while your
computer is on, the “Add New Hardware Wizard” dialog box (for
Windows) or a message (for Macintosh) appears to prompt you to
install the scanner driver. Follow the instructions in Chapter 2 to
install the scanner driver.
❏ Connect the USB cable to your computer, then install or start the
scanner software. Do not connect or disconnect the USB cable while
the scanner software is running.
❏ Make sure no other interface is used.
Note for Macintosh users:
If you connect the scanner while your Macintosh® is on, a message
appears telling you that the scanner driver needs to be installed
(Mac OS® 8.X), or a message appears to prompt you to download the
scanner driver from the Internet (Mac OS 9). When this happens, click
OK (Mac OS 8.X) or Cancel (Mac OS 9) and then insert the EPSON
Scanner Software CD in the CD-ROM drive. Then follow the
instructions in Chapter 2 to install the scanner software.
