Chapter 1: Getting Started

Your PowerLook 2100XL scanner is extremely user-friendly. Hardware and software installation can be completed in a few steps. In minutes you can start operating your scanner to see for yourself the kind of quality scanned images it can produce.

This chapter tells you how to prepare your scanner for connection and installation. It also gives some handling precautions and general care measures to ensure that your scanner will stay in top condition at all times.

Before You Begin
Unpack Your Scanner

Ensure that your package contains all the hardware, software, cabling, ad documentation you ordered. Check for any damage that may have occurred while the package was in transit. If there are any missing or damaged items in your scanner package, contact your dealer or the carrier of your package immediately.

Static Electricity Precautions

Static electricity (in your body) can cause damage to the electronic components of the scanner’s printed circuit board or the computer’s interface card. Therefore, you need to discharge static build-up from your body before handling any card or component outside of its anti-static packaging.

To protect your equipment from static discharge, you are advised to closely follow these measures below:

Discharge any static build-up in your body by touching a grounded or anti-static surface (such as a large metal object or the silver-toned expansion slot covers at the rear of your computer). Do this prior to removing any electronic components from their anti-static bags.

When handling any electronic components, avoid touching any metal part of the component such as the gold “fingers” that plug into the expansion slot. It is best to handle system components either by their edges or by their mounting brackets.

A Glance at Your Scanner

Take a few minutes to become familiar with the different parts of the scanner. The figure below shows the locations and names of the scanner parts. A brief description of each part is also given.

Prepare the Scanner

Prepare your scanner for installation through the following simple steps:

Check and reset (if necessary) the scanner’s SCSI ID

Run the automatic scanner self-test

Test the Scanner

The scanner automatically performs a simple self-test each time it is turned on. This self-test checks the status of certain scanner devices.

Start the scanner self-test by following the steps below:

1.Connect the power cord to a wall outlet.

2.Connect the other end of the power cord to the scanner.

3.Turn on the power of the scanner.

At power-on, the front panel indicators flash once. The power indicator then glows and the ready indicator blinks. When the test is completed, the power and ready indicators glow steadily.

Changing the SCSI ID Number

Your scanner’s SCSI ID setting is factory preset at #6.

Check to see if this ID setting is used by another device connected to your computer’s SCSI port.

If SCSI ID #6 is not used, you do not need to change your scanner’s SCSI ID number. You can directly proceed to hardware connection and software installation. For installation instructions, proceed to Chapter 2 if you are connecting to a Macintosh computer or to Chapter 3 if you are connecting to an IBM PC.

If you find however, that another connected device is already using SCSI ID #6, then you must reset the SCSI ID on your scanner.

8

To reset the SCSI ID, do the following:

1.Make sure the scanner power is off.

2.Use a screwdriver to rotate the SCSI ID switch on the SCSI ID switch until an unused number appears in the switch’s notch.

Note: Do not use SCSI ID setting from 7 through 9 on your scanner. They are for factory use only.

Care and Maintenance Tips

Regularly clean the object glass of the scanner and the transparency adapter to prevent dirt or smudge build-up that may reduce the quality of your scanned images. Before you clean the object glass, make sure the scanner power is off and the power cord is unplugged.

Clean the object glass of the scanner and the transparency adapter with a soft damp cloth and a mild detergent or alcohol.

Note: Avoid spraying cleaning fluid directly on the object glass. This may cause the liquid to penetrate the seams around the glass and contaminate the mirrors and lenses inside the scanner. Spray the liquid on the cleaning cloth then wipe the glass clean.

Be sure that nothing covers the calibration area. It is important to keep the calibration area clean since dust or smudge marks on the glass will reduce the quality of scanned transparencies. Make sure the transparency fits in the scanning area.

Do not leave transparencies on the object glass of the scanner for excessive periods of time. The warmth of the scanner and transparency adapter lamps may cause them to deteriorate. Please, use the Frame holder to secure the transparencies for scanning.

Chapter 4: Troubleshooting Tips

The PowerLook 2100XL scanner was designed to provide a hassle-free installation and operation. However, should you encounter problems with your scanner, correct them by way of the troubleshooting tips given in this chapter.

For persistent problems with your computer, consult your dealer or approved service personnel.

General Approach

In most cases, a problem does not call for the service of a qualified technician. The solution may be very simple, such as correcting cabling connections and the like. The solution of a problem normally lies at the source of the problem. Therefore, it is important that you ascertain the cause of the failure or malfunction. Below is a general troubleshooting approach.

1.Check the connections and installation. Ensure that there are no loose connections. Ensure that the settings on the scanner and/or the interface card are correct.

2.Check the error messages appearing on the screen. Does the message point to a hardware problem or software problem?

If the problem is software-related, refer to the software reference manuals or on-line help. Most software manuals include a troubleshooting chapter.

If the problem is hardware-related, verify that the cause is from your computer or scanner or in some cases, your network. If it is due to your computer malfunctioning, then consult your computer’s reference manuals or a computer service technician.

Note: Macintosh and IBM computers and compatibles display error messages that normally tell you the cause of the problem and in some cases tell you what to check or do to solve the problem.

3.If the error message points to a problem with your scanner system, run the scanner self-test.

Turn the power of your scanner on. At power on, your scanner automatically runs the scanner self-test which can detect most of the problems with your scanner.

Observe the behavior of the LED indicators. Record all your observations.

4.If all else fails, call your dealer.

To facilitate servicing, supply your dealer with the following information:

Your host environment files such as your config.sys, autoexec.bat, win.ini, system.ini, and other system files. For Mac users, use Apple system profiler located at Apple menu item to output the system environment file.

Names and version of the application software you are using.

Model and version of other SCSI devices card you are using.

TWAIN / plug-in, computer model version.

Names and version of your scanner hardware.

Error codes or messages seen.

18

Description of what you were doing at the time the malfunction or failure occurred.

Description of what you did to attempt to solve the problem.

Other observations that may aid the technician in identifying the problem and the solution.

LED Indicators

Listed below are some of the more common specific problems you may have with your scanner. Corrective actions are also given.

Problem 1: Power Indicator fails to come on

Possible Cause / Solution:

Make sure the power cable is plugged into the scanner and the wall socket.

Make sure that the power switch is on.

If none of the above works, contact your dealer.

Problem 2: Scanner lamp flickers, is dim, or fails to come on

Possible Cause / Solution:

The scanning lamp is failing or has failed and needs to be changed. Contact your dealer.

Problem 3: If the Power and Ready indicators come on, but software returns “Scanner link failed” or similar message

Possible Cause / Solution

Make sure the cable is connected properly.

Verify the setting of the SCSI ID number.

Disconnect all SCSI devices and connect them one by one, beginning with the scanner, to identify the device causing the problem.

Check the terminators and the cables. If the problem persists, contact your dealer.

19

Appendix A: Installing A SCSI Card

If you are using a SCSI interface card with your computer and scanner, refer to the installation instructions provided with the interface card.

After installing the card, do the following steps before connecting your scanner to your computer:

Confirm or reset the SCSI ID of the scanner.

Check the terminators in the SCSI Chain.

Make the SCSI cable connections.

Check the SCSI ID

The illustration below shows the location of the SCSI ID selector at the rear panel of the scanner. The selector shows the SCSI ID setting of the scanner. In this case, it is #6 – the factory preset address.

After installing a SCSI interface card in your computer, proceed with the following:

1.Check the SCSI ID of all devices on the SCSI chain. Is SCSI ID #6 on the list of SCSI ID in use?

2.If not, then you can connect your computer to the scanner with a factory preset SCSI ID of 6. You may jump to the section Check the Terminators in this appendix.

Reset the Address of the Scanner

If the SCSI ID #6 is in the list of SCSI ID in use, then you must reset the SCSI ID selector to another number:

1.Ensure the scanner power is off.

2.Choose any unused number in the range 1-6.

Note: Do not use setting 7 to 9 on your scanner. They are for factory use only.

3.Reset the scanner’s SCSI ID to the number you have chosen.

20

Checking the Terminators

There should be two terminators in a SCSI chain: it is best to place the terminators at each end of the SCSI chain.

PowerLook 2100XL has a built-in active terminator switch for you to turn on and off (see the illustration). Number 1 represents “active terminator” and number 2 represents “terminator power”. Turning both the “active terminator” and “terminator power” switch on by pressing them down will enable the built-in “active terminator” function.

In this situation, the card will have a built-in terminator. The card forms one end of the SCSI chain; the scanner forms the other end. Turn on the “active terminator” and “terminator power” switch by pressing them down to enable the built-in “active terminator” function. These will ensure that there are two terminators and that they are placed at the ends of the SCSI chain.

The simplest configurations for using the scanner with a SCSI card are as follows:

Case 1: Connect the scanner to an interface card that does not have another SCSI device attached to it. e.g. Scanner is the only SCSI device connected to your computer.

In this situation, the card will have a built-in terminator. The card forms one end of the SCSI chain, the scanner forms the other end. Simply turning on the active terminator of your scanner.

21

Case 2: Connect the scanner to a SCSI card that has another SCSI device attached to it.

Case 3: Scanner is the last SCSI device in the SCSI Chain.

The setting of active terminator is the same with Case 1. Simply turning on the active terminator of your scanner.

Installing the software and SCSI card driver

After connecting the interface card, the next step is to install the software.

Depending on which SCSI interface card you chose to connect, there are tow cases for you to follow.

Case 1: If the SCSI interface card is the one bundled by UMAX, install software in the following order.

1.Image Application Software.

2.Then MagicScan. MagicScan will find and install the SCSI interface card driver automatically.

Case 2: If the SCSI interface card you installed is not the one bundled by UMAX, install software in the following order.

1.Install SCSI interface card driver first, please refer to the SCSI interface card installation instructions to install the card driver.

2.Image Application Software.

3.And then MagicScan.

22

Connect the Computer and Scanner

Now that the interface card has been installed and all of the settings on the scanner and card are properly set, you can connect the computer and the scanner. Once this has been done, the hardware installation will be complete. To connect the scanner and computer, do the following:

1.Connect the SCSI cable to the interface card.

2.Connect the other end of the SCSI cable to the scanner.

3.Connect the power cord to the scanner.

4.Turn on the scanner power.

5.Turn on the computer power.
