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.

Object Glass – The glass surface on which the document or image for scanning is placed; made of tempered glass with excellent optical qualities.

Document Cover – The plastic cover over the object glass. Can be raised or lowered to cover a document.

LED Indicators – Two indicators – Power and Ready

Power Switch – Used for turning the scanner power ON and OFF.

SCSI ID Switch – Used for setting the scanner’s SCSI ID.

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.
