  • How do I clean my Scanner?

    ▸Cleaning the Glass

    The Cleaning Procedures

    1. Moisture a piece of soft cloth with some isopropyl alcohol. (95%)

     2. Open the document cover as shown below.

    3. Gently wipe the document glass.

     4. Close the document cover. Your scanner is now ready for use.

  • ▎Software

  • When I choose optical resolution to be 600 dpi, the “auto crop” and “deskew” functions will be disabled.

    Since to perform auto crop and deskew consumes great deal of system memory, it is suggested if you wish to perform “auto crop” and “deskew” functions, please choose your optical resolution to be smaller than 600 dpi to prevent a error message.

  • Why does my scanned image always come out too dark?

    1. Please adjust the screen settings to sRGB.

    2.Please adjust the brightness settings on the screen from application software.
