Chapter 4
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 ] Start button for
one-step scanning.
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.
Selecting Your Scanner Source
Your EPSON GT-10000 scanner comes with two all-purpose drivers, EPSON
TWAIN Pro and EPSON 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 EPSON TWAIN Pro Network as your
source.
43
shallot.book Page 44 Thursday, January 27, 2000 9:59 PM
For details on using EPSON TWAIN Pro or EPSON TWAIN Pro Network, see
your electronic EPSON GT-10000 Software Reference Guide. If you purchased the
optional automatic document feeder, you can install the ISIS driver and use it as your
source. (See the electronic manual on your ISIS driver CD-ROM for details.)
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:
44
■
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 Software Reference Guide.
How to Scan
shallot.book Page 45 Thursday, January 27, 2000 9:59 PM
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, such as 35 mm slides or wallet-size
photos, 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 Software Reference Guide.

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

3. Close the document cover
slowly. Be careful not to
move the document.
You can remove the document cover if you need to scan a
thick item—such as a photo in an album—that doesn’t fit
under the cover. Simply lift the back of the cover straight up.
When you reattach the cover, position the hinges over the
posts at one end of the scanner and push down gently until
the cover clicks into place.

The ] Start button features described in this chapter are only
available when you use EPSON TWAIN Pro to access a
scanner connected to your computer.
To use the ] Start button with a network scanner, the client
computer must start both the host application and EPSON
TWAIN Pro Network. Pressing the ] Start button sends the
scanned image to the client computer currently connected to
the scanner server, but does not automatically launch any
applications.
Setting Up the ] Start Button
If you didn’t install Presto! PageManager, you need to assign an application to the ]
Start button before you use it the first time.
If you’re running Windows 98,
whenever you press the ] Start button
you’ll see a window asking you to choose
which application to launch. To avoid
this window, make sure that only one
application is assigned to the ] Start
button. Continue with the next section,
“Windows 98.” If you’re running
Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0, go
to page 52.

Chapter 5
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 98, Windows 95, or
Windows NT 4.0 (Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3 is recommended).
■
Client computers must run Windows 98, Windows 95, 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.
55
shallot.book Page 56 Thursday, January 27, 2000 9:59 PM
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.
Scanner Server
EPSON Scan Server
EPSON TWAIN Pro*
TWAIN-compliant software (such as
Presto! PageManager for EPSON)
EPSON GT-10000
Network
Client Computers
EPSON TWAIN Pro Network
TWAIN-compliant software (such as
Presto! PageManager for EPSON)
* 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.
Setting Up the Scanner Server
You can set up any Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows NT 4.0 computer as a
scanner server, as long as it is configured and operational on an existing network with
TCP/IP Protocol installed. If you don’t have the TCP/IP Protocol installed on the
scanner server, see Appendix A, “Installing the TCP/IP Protocol,” for instructions.
Be sure to unlock the scanner and connect it to the scanner server using the SCSI
cable that came with your scanner. (See Chapter 2, “Setting Up Your Scanner,”
for details.)

server. Only one client computer can access the scanner server at a time. (See
“Starting EPSON TWAIN Pro Network” on page 77 for instructions.)
■
Choose your settings, then place your document on the scanner or in the optional
automatic document feeder. (See Chapter 4, “How to Scan,” for more
information.)
■
Start the scan. Although this can be done from EPSON TWAIN Pro Network on
the client computer, it may be more convenient to press the scanner’s ] Start
button or to start the scan from the scanner server. A progress meter appears on
both the scanner server and client computer as the image is pre-scanned, then
scanned.
If you want to scan more than one image, place your second image on the
document table and press the scanner’s ] Start button again. Repeat this step for
every image you want to scan. (The settings you chose for the first image apply to
these images too.)
■
When you return to the client computer, your scanned images appear in the host
application’s window. 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 ] 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
] Start button to scan multiple images if you’re using these
applications.

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

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.
Since the settings and controls for EPSON TWAIN Pro Network are the same as
those for EPSON TWAIN Pro, see “Scanning From Start to Finish” on page 46 for
scanning instructions. For more detailed information about the settings, see the
EPSON GT-10000 Reference Guide on your scanner software CD-ROM.

Chapter 6
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 Software Reference Guide.
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.

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.

shallot.book Page 100 Thursday, January 27, 2000 9:59 PM
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 your local EPSON Customer Care Center. (See “Where To Get
Help” on page 96.)
Never open the case of the scanner. If you think repairs or
adjustments are necessary, consult your EPSON Customer
Care Center.
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.

Appendix A
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 TCP/IP Protocol installed.
In addition, both the scanner server and client computers must have an IP address
assigned.
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.
Installing the TCP/IP Protocol on
Windows 98 and Windows 95
1. Double-click the Network icon in the
Control Panel. If necessary, click the
Configuration tab to display the screen on
the right.
2. Check that TCP/IP appears in the list of
installed network components.
If it appears in the list, go to “Assigning an IP
Address” on page 102.
If you don’t see TCP/IP in the list, continue
with the next step.
3. Click the Add button.
101
shallot.book Page 102 Thursday, January 27, 2000 9:59 PM
4. When you see the screen on the right, select
Protocol from the list and click the Add
button. The Select Network Protocol
window appears.
5. Select Microsoft from the
Manufacturers list, and TCP/IP from
the Network Protocols list. Then
click OK.
6. Continue with the instructions in the
next section to assign an IP address.
Assigning an IP Address
If your network is connected to the Internet, ask your Internet provider or system
administrator for a formal IP address.
If your network is not connected to the Internet, you can use an IP address in the
following ranges: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255, 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255, or
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255. Make sure you use a different IP address for every
computer on your network.
If you encounter problems connecting to the internet using
the IP addresses listed above, please contact your system
administrator.
102

Assigning an IP Address
If your network is connected to the Internet, ask your Internet provider or system
administrator for a formal IP address.
If your network is not connected to the Internet, you can use an IP address in the
following ranges: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255, 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255, or
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255. Make sure you use a different IP address for every
computer on your network.
If you use IP addresses in the ranges listed above, you need
to change them before you connect the network to the
Internet. Otherwise you’ll experience IP address conflicts.
If your network uses a DHCP server, you don’t need to obtain
an IP address before beginning this procedure; the server
finds one for you.
Follow the steps below to assign the IP address to your computer:
1. Select TCP/IP Protocol in the Network Protocols list on the Protocols tab, and
then click the Properties button.
2. Click the IP Address tab to display the
screen on the right.

network, you can assign an IP address
automatically by selecting Obtain an IP
address from a DHCP server and
clicking OK.)
4. Click OK again to close the Network
window and have your IP address assignment
take effect.
Make sure you share the IP address for the
scanner server with all client computers on
the network.
