Using IEEE 1394 to Connect Your Scanner
The optional IEEE 1394 interface board (B808342) offers high-speed data transfer
and flexible connectivity for your scanner. It supports a peak data transfer rate of
400 Mbps. Interface cables can be connected and disconnected without turning off
the scanner or your computer. You can connect multiple IEEE 1394 devices
simultaneously in either a daisy-chain or tree configuration.
You must be running a Windows Me or Windows 2000 system with a
built-in IEEE 1394 port or an IEEE 1394 adapter to use an IEEE 1394
connection.
Installing the IEEE 1394 Interface Board
To use your scanner as an IEEE 1394 device, you need to install the optional IEEE
1394 interface board.
1. Turn off the scanner. Unplug any power cords, then disconnect all cables from
the back of your scanner.
2. Use a cross-head screwdriver to remove the two screws securing the shield plate to
the optional interface slot (located above the two SCSI ports) then remove the
plate. Be sure to keep the screws in case you need to re-install the shield plate later.
22
Setting Up Your Scanner
Static electricity can damage electronic components. Discharge static
electricity by touching the metal frame of your scanner before handling the
interface board.
3. Insert the interface board, with the circuit board face down, along the side guide
rails in the optional interface slot until it is flush with the back panel.
4. Secure the board with the attached retaining screws and reconnect all the cables.
Understanding IEEE 1394 Connections
The interface board is equipped with two cable connector ports. One port is used to
connect the board to the computer, and the other port is used to connect additional
IEEE 1394 devices in a daisy-chain or tree configuration. Use the cable supplied with
your board when connecting the scanner to your computer. The cable can be
connected without switching off the power supply to the computer or the scanner
because it complies with the IEEE 1394 standard.
Do not connect or disconnect IEEE 1394 cables when the scanner
software is running.

If you load multiple pages, they will be fed from the top and ejected
facedown.
To automatically scan both sides of a document, select the Double-Side
setting in EPSON TWAIN Pro.
You can still load documents manually, if you want. Just lift the automatic
document feeder and place the first sheet of your document face down on
the document table. Always close the automatic document feeder before
scanning, and do not open it during scanning or an error will result.
Make sure to select Auto Document Feeder as your Document Source in
EPSON TWAIN Pro.
If you want to scan only part of the document area, load the first page of
the document in the automatic document feeder. When you start EPSON
TWAIN Pro and click the Preview button, the first page is ejected. You can
adjust the marquee in the Preview area, and then load up to 100 pages of
the document in the automatic document feeder. The GT-10000+ scans
the area defined by the marquee on each page.

How to Scan
This chapter offers you some tips for getting the best scan, gives an overview of
the scanning process, and describes how to set up and use the a Start button for
one-step scanning.
Selecting Your Scanner Source
Your EPSON GT-10000+ scanner comes with two all-purpose drivers, EPSON
TWAIN Pro and TWAIN Pro Network. The scanner driver is what you select as the
source in your application. This is the software that allows your computer to
communicate with your scanner. It also allows you to select certain settings to
optimize the scanned image.
If you installed EPSON TWAIN Pro on the scanner server so that you could
make a direct connection to the scanner, remember that you must exit
EPSON Scan Server to use EPSON TWAIN Pro. EPSON Scan Server
disables EPSON TWAIN Pro.
If you’re accessing a network scanner connected to another computer,
always use TWAIN Pro Network as your source. For network scanning
instructions, see Chapter 6.
See the sections below for basic scanning with EPSON TWAIN Pro and Start button
scanning. For detailed instructions on using EPSON TWAIN Pro or TWAIN Pro
Network, see your electronic EPSON GT-10000+ Reference Guide. You can also
install the ISIS driver and use it as your source. (See the next chapter, “Scanning With
the ISIS Driver” on page 67.)
55
Scanning From Start to Finish
This section contains step-by-step instructions for scanning an image. Before you
scan, make sure you’ve set up your scanner and installed the software as described in
Chapter 2, “Setting Up Your Scanner.”
Placing Your Original Document
1. Raise the scanner cover and
place your document face
down on the
document table.

Scanning Tips
Getting the best scan possible depends on several factors, including the quality of
your original and the resolution you select. The better your original, the better your
scan will be. While you can make some corrections in your scanning software, you’ll
need to do major photo retouching in an image-editing program, such as Adobe
PhotoDeluxe.
64
How to Scan
Selecting Resolution
Resolution refers to how many dots per inch (dpi) or dots per centimeter (dpcm) your
image contains. The best resolution for a scanned image depends on the type of image
you’re scanning and your final output device.
As a rule of thumb for most images except line art, use a scanning resolution that is
approximately one-third of your output resolution. For example, use a scanning
resolution up to 100 dpi with a 300 dpi laser printer, and up to 200 dpi with a
600 dpi laser printer. For 1440 dpi ink jet printers, such as the EPSON Stylus® Color
series, use a scanning resolution of up to 300 dpi. Try a scanning resolution of 240
dpi for 720 dpi printing.
Keep the following in mind when you choose a resolution:
■
The higher the resolution you select, the larger the resulting image file will be. For
example, an 8.5 × 11-inch original scanned at 300 dpi can produce a 24MB file.
The same original scanned at 72 dpi creates a 1.3MB file. Large files take longer to
process and print, so consider the practical limitations of your computer system
and hard disk drive when selecting a resolution. To keep your file size
manageable, select the lowest possible resolution that gives acceptable quality. (If
your final output is for on-screen viewing, you can scan at 72 dpi and reduce your
file size.)
■
If you need to scan at a higher resolution, you can reduce the size of the resulting
image file by scanning only part of the image. For information about selecting
part of an image, see “Making and modifying marquees” in your electronic
EPSON GT-10000+ Reference Guide.
How to Scan
65
Scanning Color Images
If the colors in your scanned image don’t match those in your original document, try
experimenting with the Unsharp Mask setting. Click the Destination button on the
EPSON TWAIN Pro or EPSON TWAIN Pro Network main window to display the
Destination window, and then select or deselect Unsharp Mask.
Scaling (Resizing) Images
If you plan to enlarge your image, it’s better to enlarge it by scanning at a higher
resolution rather than adjusting resolution in your application. Each time you modify
an image, you lose some image quality.
Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, you’ll need to scan at a high enough
resolution to retain your image quality, but not so high that your file size is too large
to be efficient.
Batch Scanning
You can use batch scanning to save time. Batch scanning allows you to scan several
images at once, or the same image with several different settings.
For more information, see “Making and modifying marquees” in your electronic
EPSON GT-10000+ Reference Guide.

How to Scan
Chapter 5
Scanning With the ISIS Driver
This chapter tells you how to install and configure the ISIS (Image and Scanner
Interface Specification) driver for your application. ISIS is an industry-standard
interface for high-performance document scanning. The ISIS driver for the EPSON
GT-10000+ scanner is designed for OCR scanning either with or without the
automatic document feeder (ADF).
You can use this driver with any application that supports ISIS drivers. Configure the
ISIS driver for the type of scanning you do on a regular basis. Then you can quickly
process individual scanning jobs without having to adjust any settings.
For a complete list of ISIS-compatible applications, visit the Pixel
Translations web site at www.pixtran.com, and then click the Partners
button.
Several scanning applications suppress the ISIS interface and default
driver settings. Please check your software manufacturer’s
documentation for more information.
Installing the ISIS Driver
Before you install the ISIS driver, make sure your scanner and ADF are set up and
connected to your computer. Make sure to install an ISIS-compatible application
first, and then follow these steps:
1. Insert the EPSON GT-10000+ Scanner Software CD-ROM in your drive.
Double-click the
My Computer icon on your desktop, and then double-click

Network Scanning
Before you can use the EPSON GT-10000+ as a network scanner, your computers
must be configured and operational on an existing network with TCP/IP Protocol
installed. Then you can use the EPSON Scan Server and EPSON TWAIN Pro
Network software applications on your scanner software CD-ROM to share your
scanner with other users in a small workgroup.
Your scanner network must have a scanner server (the Windows computer connected
to the scanner) and at least one or more client computers. Only one client computer
can access the scanner at a time. However, you can have more than one scanner and
scanner server on a network, so clients can choose which scanner to use.
Your system must meet these minimum requirements for sharing a scanner:
■
The network computer that you use as the scanner server must be an
IBM-compatible computer running Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95,
Windows 2000, or Windows NT 4.0 (Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3, or
later is recommended).
■
Client computers must run Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95,
Windows 2000, or Windows NT 4.0.
■
Both the client computers and the scanner server must have a network interface
card installed, and must be running the TCP/IP Protocol. (See Appendix A,
“Installing the TCP/IP Protocol,” for instructions.)
■
The network computer that you use as the scanner server must have EPSON Scan
Server installed. EPSON TWAIN Pro Network must be installed on client
computers to access the scanner over the network.
77
The illustration below shows a sample network configuration in which network
scanning is available. The software you install depends on which computer you’re
setting up—a scanner server or client computer.

Using a Network Scanner
Here are a few guidelines for network scanning:
88
■
Turn on the scanner first. The computer you’ve set up as a scanner server must
also be turned on and running EPSON Scan Server.
■
Place your document on the scanner or in the optional automatic document
feeder. (See Chapter 4, “How to Scan,” for details.)
Network Scanning
■
From a host application (such as Presto! PageManager) on the client computer,
start EPSON TWAIN Pro Network to establish a connection to the scanner
server.
Only one client computer can access the scanner server at a time. (See
“Starting EPSON TWAIN Pro Network” on page 90 for instructions.)
■
Start the scan from EPSON TWAIN Pro Network on the client computer, or
press the scanner’s a Start button to start the scan from the scanner server.
If you want to scan more than one image with the a Start button, place your
second image on the document table and press the scanner’s a Start button.
Repeat this step for every image you want to scan.
■
Your scanned images appear in the host application’s window on the client
computer. Close EPSON TWAIN Pro Network to end your connection to the
scanner server and allow other client computers to use the scanner.
When you press the a Start button, some applications automatically close
the client computer’s connection to the scanner server when the scan is
finished. You can’t use the a Start button to scan multiple images if you’re
using these applications.
Starting EPSON Scan Server
EPSON Scan Server starts automatically whenever the scanner server is turned on.
When EPSON Scan Server is running, you see either the EPSON Scan Server dialog
box, or the
EPSON Scan Server icon on the Windows taskbar. If you need to

Server dialog box indicates that
you are connecting to a client.
Wait until you see the message
Waiting for connection.
click to exit
If you installed EPSON TWAIN Pro on the scanner server so that you could
make a direct connection to the scanner, remember that you must exit
EPSON Scan Server to use EPSON TWAIN Pro. EPSON Scan Server
disables EPSON TWAIN Pro.
Starting EPSON TWAIN Pro Network
When you start EPSON TWAIN Pro Network on your client computer, you connect
to the scanner server. Only one client computer can access the scanner server at a
time. Follow these steps:
1. Start your host application.
2. Select EPSON TWAIN Pro Network as your source, or scanner driver. (You need
to do this step only once.)
For example, if you’re using Presto! PageManager for EPSON as your host
application, choose Select Source from the File menu. In the Select Source
window, choose EPSON TWAIN Pro Network and click Select.
The command you choose from the File menu depends on the host
application. With some applications, for example, you might choose
Import or Select TWAIN_32 Source.
3. Start EPSON TWAIN Pro Network.
If your host application is Presto! PageManager for EPSON, choose Acquire
from the File menu. When EPSON TWAIN Pro Network starts, the EPSON
TWAIN Pro Network main menu appears and you connect to the scanner server.

Chapter 7
Maintaining and
Transporting Your Scanner
This chapter explains how to care for your scanner and prepare it for a move.
Cleaning the Scanner
To keep your scanner operating at its best, you should clean it periodically. Before
cleaning it, turn the scanner off and unplug its power cable. Then clean the outside
with a soft cloth using mild detergent diluted in water.
If the glass of the document table gets dirty, clean it with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. If
grease or other hard-to-remove material gets on the glass, remove it with a small
amount of glass cleaner on a soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe off any remaining moisture
with a dry, lint-free cloth.
Do not:
■
Scratch or damage the document table glass.
■
Use a hard or abrasive brush to clean the scanner.
■
Use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvents.
■
Spill liquids into the scanner mechanism or electronic components.
■
Spray lubricants inside the scanner.
93
Replacing the Fluorescent Lamp
The luminosity of the fluorescent lamp declines over time. If the lamp breaks or
becomes too dim to operate normally, the scanner stops working and both the
READY and ERROR lights flash. If this happens, the lamp assembly may need to be
replaced. Contact EPSON. (See “Where To Get Help” on page 109.)
Never open the case of the scanner. If you think repairs or adjustments
are necessary, contact EPSON.
Transporting the Scanner
If you need to transport the scanner or store it for an extended period, you must
secure the carriage beforehand. Turn on the scanner and wait until the carriage moves
to the home position (the left side). Then turn off the scanner.
Turn the transportation lock to the locked position to secure the carriage.
locked position
If the scanner is inoperable, the carriage may not automatically return to
the home position. If it doesn’t, raise the right side of the scanner and hold
it up until the carriage comes to rest at the left side. Then turn the
transportation lock to the locked position.

Chapter 8
Solving Problems
This chapter helps you diagnose and solve scanner problems. It explains how to
upgrade your computer system to improve scanner performance and how to
interpret the scanner’s lights. It also provides solutions to common set-up and
software problems.
For additional software troubleshooting tips, see the “Troubleshooting” chapter of
your electronic EPSON GT-10000+ Reference Guide. For paper jam problems in the
optional ADF, see “Fixing Paper Jams” on page 53.
Upgrading Your System
To improve your image processing speed and the appearance of the images on your
monitor, you can add the following items to your system:
■
Additional memory. Scanned images use much more memory than text files, so
you may need more RAM in your computer and a larger hard disk.
■
Accelerator board. You may want to increase your system’s processing speed; large
files take longer to process than small ones.
■
Video card. If your scanned images look grainy or have poor gradient fills on your
monitor, you may want to upgrade your video card. You’ll need 24-bit color (also
called true color or millions of colors) or better for the highest-quality image
reproductions.
■
High resolution monitor. The resolution of your monitor also affects the quality
of the image you see. Consider a high resolution monitor if you do precise color
work, but be sure you have a compatible video card.
■
Compression software. Many different programs are available to make image files
smaller for storage or transmission. For example, they can enable you to store a
3MB image file on a 1.44MB diskette. Compression software can compress
images and restore them with virtually no loss of data or quality.

Exposure settings.
■
Check the condition of your
original. If the document is
damaged, dirty, or wrinkled,
these imperfections will show
up in your scan.
■
Make sure the document is
placed flat against the document
table.
Solving Problems
103
Your scanned image is blurred or
distorted
■
104
Check the position and
condition of your document.
Make sure the document is
placed flat against the scanner’s
document table glass. If only
part of the image is blurred, part
of your document may be
wrinkled or warped.
■
Make sure the document table
glass is clean.
■
Make sure the scanner is on a
flat, stable surface.
Solving Problems
The edges of the document aren’t
scanned
■
Check the position of your
document. Adjust it so that the
image is within the glass area of
the document table.
■
If colors are patchy or distorted
at the edges of the image, the
document may be too thick, or
there may be outside light
interfering with the scan.
Your image scans at an angle or
straight lines in the image come
out jagged
Check the position of your
document. It may be placed at an
angle on the document table. Align
it so the horizontal and vertical
edges are carefully aligned with the
scales on the top and side of the
document table.
The colors in your scanned image
look strange, or look different
than the colors in the original
document
■
Make sure the Image Type and
Destination settings are correct.
■
Try different combinations of
gamma and color settings in
your scanner software.
■
If you’re using an automatic
document feeder, make sure it’s
closed when scanning.
■
Make sure Unsharp Mask is
deselected in the Destination
window.
■
Printed colors do not match the
colors on your monitor exactly,
since printers and monitors use
different color systems.
OCR scanning produces poor
character recognition
■
Select OCR as both the Image
Type and Destination. (Refer to
the electronic Reference Guide
for details.)
■
Adjust the Threshold setting in
the Image Controls window.
■
Select Text Enhancement
Technology for the B/W
Option in the Image Type
window.
The printed image is larger or
smaller than the original
■
You can’t judge the size of the
printed image by what you see
on your screen. The image size
settings in your scanner software
determine the printed image size.
Solving Problems
105
The image doesn’t scan, or you
can only scan a few dots
■
■
■
Make sure the document is face
down on the document table.
If you’re using an automatic
document feeder, make sure the
original document is inserted
face up.
If you’ve selected OCR as your
Image Type, select None for the
B/W Option in the Image Type
window. Then adjust the
Threshold setting in the Image
Controls window. Or try
changing the Image Type from
OCR to Line Art, then adjust
the Threshold setting. (Refer to
the electronic Reference Guide
for details.)
A line of dots is always missing
from the image
■
■
106
When a line of dots is missing
from the scanned image on your
screen, the scanner sensor has
malfunctioned. Contact your
dealer.
When a line of dots is missing
from your printouts, you may
need to clean your print head or
replace your ink cartridges or
toner. See your printer manual.
Solving Problems
You can’t print scanned images,
or the printed image looks
garbled
■
Make sure your printer is
securely connected to your
computer and that you’re using
the correct cable.
■
Make sure the correct printer is
selected in your application.
Moiré (cross-hatch) patterns
appear in the image when you
perform halftone scanning
■
Make the image size slightly
smaller.
■
Use a transparent sheet between
the document and the
document table to slightly
defocus the image.
■
Reposition the document on the
document table. If necessary,
position the document at a
slight angle.
■
Select 24-bit Color
De-screening as your Image
Type, or select On for
De-screening in the Image
Type window.
■
Make sure Unsharp Mask is
deselected in the Destination
window.

Installing the TCP/IP Protocol
To use your EPSON GT-10000+ as a network scanner, the computers must be
configured and operational on an existing network with the TCP/IP Protocol
installed. In addition, both the scanner server and client computers must have an IP
address and subnet mask assigned. If you aren’t sure what IP address or subnet mask
to use, ask your network administrator.
If you’re running DHCP and WINS, or if you have a DNS server, you may
find it easier to use a host name rather than an IP address to identify the
scanner server. To specify a host name, you must enable DNS. See your
Windows documentation for instructions.

Warranty
EPSON AMERICA, INC. LIMITED WARRANTY
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“EPSON”) warrants to the first end user customer of the
EPSON product enclosed with this limited warranty statement, that the product if purchased and used
in the United States or Canada, conforms to the manufacturer's specifications and will be free from
defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year from the date of original purchase.
EPSON warrants that the EPSON product is manufactured from new components and parts, or if you
have purchased a refurbished product, like-new components and parts which perform like new and
meet the EPSON standard of quality. For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of
original purchase.
What EPSON Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your EPSON product prove defective during the
warranty period, please bring the product securely packaged in its original container or an equivalent,
along with proof of the date of original purchase, to your EPSON Dealer or EPSON Customer Care
Center. You are responsible for all costs (shipping, insurance, travel time) in getting the product to the
service location. EPSON will, at its option, repair or replace on an exchange basis the defective unit,
without charge for parts or labor. When warranty service involves the exchange of the product or of a
part, the item replaced becomes EPSON property. The replacement unit may be new or refurbished to
the Epson standard of quality, and at Epson’s option, the replacement may be another model of like
kind and quality. Epson’s liability for replacement of the covered product will not exceed the original
retail selling price of the covered product. Exchange or replacement products or parts assume the
remaining warranty period of the product covered by this limited warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the United States and
Canada. This warranty does not cover damage to the EPSON product caused by parts or supplies not
manufactured, distributed or certified by EPSON. This warranty does not cover third party parts,
components or peripheral devices added to the EPSON product after its shipment from EPSON, e.g.,
dealer-added boards, chips or drives. This warranty is not transferable and will not apply to products
purchased from an end user. EPSON is not responsible for warranty service should the EPSON label
or logo or the rating label or serial number be removed or should the product fail to be properly
maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect,
improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical
current, software problems, interaction with non-EPSON products, or service other than by an
EPSON Authorized Servicer. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced in service, you will
be held responsible for costs incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. SOME LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES.
IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED
TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY
STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM ARE
VOID. IN THE EVENT THE REMEDIES ABOVE FAIL, EPSON'S ENTIRE LIABILITY SHALL
Notices
129
BE LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE PRICE PAID FOR THE EPSON PRODUCT
COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY, NEITHER EPSON AMERICA, INC. NOR ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE
FOR ANY LOSS, INCONVENIENCE, OR DAMAGE, INCLUDING DIRECT, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, RESULTING FROM THE USE OR
INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF
WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and some
jurisdictions do not allow certain exclusions or limitations on damages, so the above limitations and
exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have
other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
