10/27/97, 12:25 PM
CHOOSE A GOOD PLACE FOR YOUR SCANNER
Here are some points to consider:
◗
Place the scanner on a flat, stable surface. If the scanner is tilted, it can’t
operate properly.
◗
Make sure to place the scanner where you can easily unplug the power
cord, and where the SCSI cable can reach your computer.
◗
Be sure there’s enough room behind the scanner for the cables, and above
the scanner so you can fully raise the document cover, if necessary.
◗
Keep the scanner away from direct sunlight and strong light sources.
◗
Avoid places subject to shocks and vibrations, or high temperatures and
humidity.
INSTALL THE SCSI INTERFACE BOARD (PC ONLY)
You must install your SCSI board and SCSI software before installing the
scanner driver and software applications.
If you have a Macintosh or if you already have a SCSI board installed in
your PC, skip this section.
Note:
For additional information, see the Installation Guide that came with your
SCSI board.
1. Turn off the computer and any peripheral devices. Unplug any power
cords; then disconnect all cables from the back panel of your computer.
2. Remove the cover from your computer.
Caution:
Ground yourself before you touch any of the computer’s internal components
by touching an unpainted metal surface inside the computer case.

SET THE SCSI ID NUMBER
The scanner is preset at the factory to SCSI ID 5. If you
need to change this number, use the tip of a small
screwdriver to turn the rotary switch on
the back panel. Be sure to choose
a unique number that doesn’t
conflict with the ID number of
other SCSI devices (including the
SCSI interface board).

Note:
Don’t use SCSI ID 8 or 9 for your
scanner. These are for factory use
only.
CONNECT THE SCANNER TO YOUR COMPUTER
Caution:
Make sure both the scanner and computer are turned off.
1. Locate the connector cable that came with your scanner.
Connect one end to either SCSI connector on the back of
the scanner and tighten the screws to secure it. Then connect
the other end to the SCSI port on your computer or other
SCSI device in the chain.
2. Locate the SCSI terminator. If the scanner is
the only SCSI device you connect to
your computer or if it’s the last
device in the SCSI chain, you
must insert the SCSI terminator
into the empty SCSI connector
on the back panel of the scanner.
(This step is not required if
you’ve connected your scanner
in the middle of a SCSI chain.)

includes the Windows 95 and Windows NT drivers for your SCSI board.
The EPSON Perfection 600 CD-ROM for Windows 3.1 includes Adaptec
EZ-SCSI™ Lite, which installs your Windows 3.1 SCSI driver. You need to
install the SCSI software for your system before you can use your scanner.
Note:
Your scanner also comes with a bootable diskette that contains SCSISelect, a
SCSI configuration utility for Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows NT. You
only need to use this utility if you have problems with your SCSI board. See
page 41 if necessary.
If you’re running Windows 95...
1. Turn on your scanner first; then turn on your computer. A screen
appears saying that your system has detected new hardware and asking
you to install the driver (sparrow.mpd). If Windows doesn’t ask for the
driver, you’ve already installed it with another SCSI device. Skip to
step 5.
2. Insert the EPSON Perfection 600 CD-ROM for Windows 95 and
Windows NT in your CD-ROM drive. (If the EPSON Perfection 600
installation program launches, click Exit.)

installs automatically.
4. When installation is complete, turn off your computer. (Select Shut
Down from the Start menu, then select the option that shuts down the
computer.) After a few seconds, turn it on again.
Windows 95 tells you that an unknown device has been found. This
indicates your scanner has been detected. Windows may ask you if you
want to install a driver. Select “Do not install a driver” and click OK.
If you have a newer version of Windows 95, you will be guided through
a device driver setup wizard. Click Next on the first screen, and then
click Finish.
5. Install the rest of the EPSON Perfection 600 software as described on
page 13.

1. Start the host application (for
example, Visioneer PaperPort).
2. Select your scanner software.
(Unless you change your source, you
only need to do this step once.)
For example, from PaperPort choose
Select Source from the File menu.
Highlight Perfection 600 (32 Bit)
from the Select Source list and click
Select.
If you’re running Windows 3.1,
select EPSON Perfection 600 as
your source.
If you have a Macintosh, choose Select Source from PaperPort’s File menu.
Make sure the Perfection600 icon is highlighted, then click OK. Only use
this icon with PaperPort.
Note:
If you’re running any application but PaperPort on your Macintosh, choose Acquire
from the host application’s File menu, then select Perfection600 from the cascading
menu. If you don’t see Perfection600 in the
menu, make sure you copied the
Perfection600 plug-in module from the
EPSON Perfection 600 folder to the plug-ins
folder for your application. (You don’t need
to copy this module to PaperPort’s Plug-ins
folder.) The scanner software automatically
opens, so you can skip step 3.
3. Open the scanner software.
For example, choose Acquire from
PaperPort’s File menu, or click the

POWER SCANNING—NEW TOOLS THAT GIVE YOU GREAT RESULTS
Your EPSON Perfection 600 has some extra tools that aren’t available to any
other scanner in its price range. (Some of these tools, like batch scanning and
image rotation, aren’t available on the Windows 3.1 driver.)
Flip horizontally
Flip vertically
Rotate 90°
AutoExposure
For example, a powerful
batch scanning function
lets you scan multiple
images at the same time
with a single click of the
mouse. You can scan
different types of images,
use different settings for
each scan, import your
scans directly into your
host application, or save
your scans automatically
to your hard disk.
Note:
Batch Mode scanning is not
available with Adobe
PhotoDeluxe; however, you
can still scan multiple images
using the Batch Mode Tiff
option.
Toggle between pixel zoom
and orientation view
AutoExposure, a
sophisticated image
adjustment tool,
automatically adjusts your
image for the best contrast
possible while removing
any color cast (distinctive
overall color) that the
image might have.
You can rotate images in
90° increments before you
scan, eliminating the need
to rotate an image later in
your graphics application.
You can also flip the image
horizontally or vertically.

MAINTENANCE
To keep your scanner operating at its best, you should clean it periodically.
Before cleaning, unplug the power cord.
Use a soft cloth to clean the outer case with mild detergent dissolved in water.
ad
If the glass of the document table gets dirty, clean it with a soft, dry cloth. If the
glass is stained with grease or other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount
of glass cleaner on a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off any remaining liquid with
a dry cloth.
Be sure there’s no dust on your document table. Dust can cause white spots to
appear in your scanned image.
Caution:
◗ Never use a harsh or abrasive brush or cleaning product to clean the document
table. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scanning quality.
◗
Never use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvent to clean the scanner. These
chemicals can damage the scanner components as well as the case.
◗
Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or electronic
components. This could permanently damage them.
◗
Don’t spray lubricants inside the scanner.
◗
Never open the scanner case. If you think repairs or adjustments are necessary,
consult your dealer or contact EPSON.

some of the most common questions.
39
Mint SG
43
10/27/97, 12:45 PM
IF YOU CAN’T OPEN THE SCANNER DRIVER…
Check the cable connecting the scanner to the
computer.
Make sure the scanner is correctly connected to the
computer. Also, make sure the scanner’s ready light
is on. The scanner must be turned on before you
start your computer. If necessary, turn on your
scanner and restart your computer.
Check your SCSI board installation (PC only).
Make sure that the SCSI interface board is installed
correctly in your computer. See page 8 for details.
THE READY LIGHT
DOESN’T COME ON…
Check the scanner power
cord.
Make sure the power cord
is securely plugged into
the scanner and the power
outlet, and that the
scanner is turned on.
Also, check that the
power outlet is working.
If you’re using the
optional transparency
unit, make sure the power
adapter is installed
correctly.
Check that your system recognizes your scanner and
SCSI board (PC only).
Check System Device Manager in the Windows
Control Panel, or the Adaptec SCSI Interrogator if
you’re running Windows 3.1. For Windows NT 4.0,
check the SCSI Adapters dialog in the Windows
Control Panel. If your system isn’t recognizing either
the SCSI board or the scanner, go to page 41.
Check for conflicts in your SCSI ID setting, I/O
address, the interrupt setting for your SCSI board,
and other settings.
For information about the SCSI ID setting, see
page 10. For information about choosing other
settings, see your computer manual.
40
Mint SG
44
10/27/97, 12:45 PM
IF YOUR SYSTEM DOESN’T RECOGNIZE THE SCANNER OR
THE SCSI BOARD (PC ONLY)…
Check the plug-and-play option
If you’re running Windows 95, plug-and-play should be active.
If you’re running Windows NT, plug-and-play should be disabled.
(You can disable ISA plug-and-play from the Advanced
Configuration Options menu in SCSISelect.)
IF THE SCANNER
DOESN’T SCAN
YOUR IMAGE…
If you’re running Windows 3.1, run SCSISelect to disable
plug-and-play.
Check your image
source setting.
Make sure you
selected the
Perfection 600 as
your source. See
page 23 for details.
Have you installed another SCSI device, such as a ZIP drive,
after installing the scanner? (Windows 95 only)
If so, your device installation may have overwritten the
SCSI driver (sparrow.mpd) with an older version of the driver.
Copy sparrow.mpd from the Sparrow directory on your
EPSON CD-ROM to the \windows\system\iosubsys
subdirectory on your hard drive.
Make sure that the
SCSI terminator is
set up correctly.
Run the Add New Hardware wizard (Windows 95)
See page 10 for
details.
Follow the instructions on the screen. (It’s best to accept the
default settings.) When you’re done, restart your computer.
Run SCSISelect
Your scanner comes with the 1505SELECT diskette, which
contains SCSISelect, a special SCSI configuration utility for
Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows NT. Insert this diskette
in your diskette drive and restart your computer, then follow the
instructions on your screen.
If SCSISelect hangs or you get an error message, you have a
hardware problem. Make sure your SCSI board is installed
correctly. If the SCSI board is found, but not the scanner, you
need to install a SCSI terminator. Also, check the SCSI cable
connection and make sure the scanner is turned on. After
checking your hardware, run SCSISelect again.
If you continue to have problems, your SCSI board may be
defective.
Run the scanner
test (Windows 95
and 3.1 only).
Run the scanner
test to make sure
the scanner is
communicating
with your
computer. (See
“Test the
Connection” on
page 17.) If the test
fails, check the
items under “If You
Can’t Open the
Scanner Driver...”

10/27/97, 12:45 PM
IF THE SCANNER
SOFTWARE DOESN’T
WORK PROPERLY…
Check your system
requirements.
Check that the system
requirements, such as the
operating system version,
are correct for your
software.
DISTORTED…
Check your computer’s
memory.
Check the position and
condition of your
document.
See if the computer has
enough memory for your
software. If you’re running
other software at the same
time, using RAM resident
programs, or have many
device drivers, the computer
may not have enough
memory. (See your software
and computer manuals.)
Check your software
installation.
Make sure that your
software is correctly installed
or set up. If all else fails,
uninstall your software, then
reinstall it.
IF YOUR SCANNED
