Safety Instructions
Important Safety Instructions
Read all these instructions and save them for later reference.
Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the scanner.
❏ Use only the AC adapter model A110B/E that comes with
your scanner. Using any other adapter could cause fire,
electrical shock, or injury.
❏ The AC adapter is designed for use with the scanner with
which it was included. Do not attempt to use it with other
electronic devices unless specified.
❏ Unplug the scanner and the AC adapter before cleaning.
Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners.
❏ Do not place the scanner or AC adapter on an unstable
surface, near a radiator or heat source.
❏ Do not use the scanner or AC adapter near water, outdoors,
or handle either device with wet hands.
❏ Use only the type of power source indicated on the AC
adapter's label, and always supply power directly from a
standard domestic electrical outlet.
❏ Connect all equipment to properly grounded electrical
outlets. Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as
photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on
and off.
❏ Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.

❏ If you use an extension cord with the scanner, make sure the
total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the extension
cord does not exceed the cord's ampere rating. Also, make
sure the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into the
electrical outlet does not exceed the electrical outlet's ampere
rating.
❏ Except as specifically explained in the scanners guides, do not
attempt to service the scanner and the power cord yourself.
❏ Never disassemble, modify, or attempt to repair the AC
adapter.
❏ Unplug the scanner and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
❏ If the power cord or plug is damaged;
❏ If liquid has entered the scanner;
❏ If the scanner has been dropped or the case damaged;
❏ If the scanner does not operate normally or exhibits a
distinct change in performance. (Do not adjust controls
that are not covered by the operating instructions.)
❏ If you plan to use the scanner in Germany, observe the
following:
To provide adequate short-circuit protection and overcurrent protection for this scanner, the building installation
must be protected by a 10 or 16 amp circuit breaker.
Note for German-speaking users:
Bei Anschluss des Scanner an die Stromversorgung muss
sichergestellt werden, dass die Gebäudeinstallation mit einer
10 A- oder 16 A-Sicherung abgesichert ist.
❏ If you are not going to use the scanner, be sure to unplug the
AC adapter from the electrical outlet.

❏ Beware of electrical shock hazards.
❏ Do not insert objects into any openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts.
❏ Never disassemble or attempt to repair the scanner and the
option.
❏ Do not expose to water or excess humidity.
❏ Do not place multiple loads on the electrical outlet.
❏ Be sure your AC power cord meets the relevant local safety
standards.
❏ Never insert or disconnect the power plug with wet hands.
❏ Power-supply cords should be protected from abrasion, cuts,
crimping and kinking. Be sure to place your cords to avoid
any damage. Do not place objects on top of the power cord
and the AC adapter or allow the power cord to be stepped on
or run over. You should take special care to try to keep the
power cord straight at the ends and the points where it enters
and leaves the transformer.
❏ Keep out of reach of children.
❏ For US and Canadian users
Use the included power cord or a 6 to 10 feet long ULapproved type NISPT-2, 2 x 18 AWG cord with a 125 V 10 A
polarized plug and 125 V 7 A connector.
The AC Adapter is equipped with a polarized alternatingcurrent line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the
other) and polarized power inlet. These plugs only fit into a
power outlet and your equipment in one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug properly, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact an
electrician to replace your outlet. Be sure to use only the
polarized AC cord that comes with the scanner.

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

Installing the Scanner Software for Windows
After connecting the scanner to your computer, install the scanner
software (EPSON TWAIN) from the CD-ROM.
Note:
❏ If the scanner software is already installed and you are upgrading
your system to Windows® 2000, be sure to uninstall it before the
upgrade, and then re-install it using the same steps described in this
section. For more information, see “Maintenance and
Troubleshooting” in your Online Reference Guide.
❏ Screen displays of Windows 98 are used to represent all versions of
Windows unless differences in operating procedure arise, in such
cases the specific Windows version such as “Windows 98" or
“Windows 2000" is identified.
1. Make sure that the scanner is plugged in and on.
2. Turn on the computer, and start Windows.
Note:
You do not need to follow steps 1 and 2 above in that order. USB
cables enable you to connect or remove the scanner from your
computer easily, regardless of whether your computer and your
scanner are turned on or off.

Scanning an Image
Before scanning a document, remember to respect the rights of
copyright owners. Do not scan published text or images without
first checking the copyright status.
1. Place the scanner on a flat, stable surface.
2. Plug in the scanner. The fluorescent lamp in the carriage turns
on.
3. Turn on the computer and make sure that the scanner's
indicator light has stopped flashing and now stays on (green).
Note:
❏ A flashing indicator light (red) indicates an error; in this case
see “Maintenance and Troubleshooting” in your Online
Reference Guide to troubleshoot the problem.
❏ The fluorescent lamp turns off if no command arrives from the
computer within 15 minutes. This is normal and the lamp turns
back on once you start scanning. The lamp also turns off if you
unplug the USB cable, and turns on again 1 second later.
4. Open the document cover.
