See Using Marquees for details. 7 Draw a marquee around the area you want to scan. 8 Click the Scan button to scan your document. EPSON TWAIN scans the document. When scanning is finished, click the Close button to close the EPSON TWAIN window. (If you suppressed the TWAIN interface, the EPSON TWAIN window doesnt appear.) 9 If you set up the Start button to load your scanned images into PageManager, click the Inbox icon to view the image in PageManager. (See your PageManager documentation for instructions on processing images in PageManager.) If you set up the Start button to load the scanned image into your OCR application (or another application), PageManager processes the image and opens the application. After a moment, the scanned image appears in your selected application window. 10 Now you can follow the instructions in the documentation for your application or for PageManager to adjust your image as necessary.
These sections give instructions for using the utilities installed along with EPSON TWAIN to help you scan and calibrate your system: Using the Scanner Monitoring Utility Using the EPSON Screen Calibration Utility
Using the Scanner Monitoring Utility
When you installed EPSON TWAIN on your system, the installer automatically installed one of these scanner monitoring utilities: Scan Events monitor in the Scanners and Cameras utility (Windows 98) EPSON Scanner Monitor (Macintosh) The scanner monitoring utilities let you use one-touch scanning with the scanners Start button and the Presto! PageManager software. If you installed PageManager when you installed your scanner software, see Using the Start Button for instructions on using your scanner monitoring utility.
Using the EPSON Screen Calibration Utility
EPSON TWAIN doesnt start.
Problem The scanner isnt ready. Solution Make sure the cables are connected properly. Also make sure your scanner is plugged in and connected before starting EPSON TWAIN. If you started EPSON TWAIN first, exit the program, unplug your scanner, then plug it in again, and restart your system.
Problem Your system doesnt meet the minimum requirements. EPSON TWAIN needs more memory. EPSON TWAIN is not selected as your TWAIN source. A system error has occurred.
Solution Make sure your computer, scanner, and software are compatible and meet the specifications under System Requirements. Make sure EPSON TWAIN can access enough system memory. See the section on memory allocation in your computer manual. EPSON TWAIN may not be selected as the TWAIN source in your application. See Starting EPSON TWAIN for instructions on selecting it. An error condition may have caused your application or the TWAIN source to stop working correctly. Save any documents in process, close any open applications, and exit Windows. Restart Windows, then start your application and try again. Sometimes an error condition may cause the computer to display a message telling you that your scanner is not recognized. If this happens, restart your computer and try again.
The scanner does not start scanning.
Problem The scanner isnt ready. Solution Check if the scanner is plugged in. If not, plug in the scanner. Then restart your computer and try scanning again.
Problem Youre scanning a large image and running out of system memory.
Solution If the image youre scanning is too large or if your system has a minimum amount of memory installed, you may run out of memory when you scan. You usually get an error message or your system locks up when this happens. Reduce the image size or resolution and try scanning again. If you still cant scan the image, add more system memory. If youve just scanned a large image in your application and then immediately scanned another, the application may not have released the memory allocated for the first image. Close your application, restart it, and try scanning again. If restarting your application doesnt solve the problem, you may need to reboot your computer.
You cannot scan images at all or only a few dots appear in the scanned image.
Problem You may have selected incorrect scan settings. Solution Select different EPSON TWAIN settings. You may have scanned from the wrong tab or selected an incorrect Image Type or Threshold setting. See Selecting Settings for details.
Problems Using the Start Button
You see the message No Push button scanner detected. on your Macintosh.
Problem Scanner monitoring doesnt detect the scanner. Solution The EPSON Scanner Monitor (Macintosh) periodically checks on the status of your scanner to make sure its ready. Sometimes the scanner check occurs when your system is processing other information and the scanner is not detected during that particular check. (You may see this message anytime, not just when you press the Start button.) If you see this message, make sure your scanner cable is securely connected. Then open and close the scanner monitoring utility to manually check for the scanner. See Enabling Scanner Monitoring for instructions. If you still see the message, unplug your scanner, then plug it in again and restart your system.
When you press the Start button, nothing happens.
Problem Scanner monitoring is not enabled. Solution Scanner monitoring must be enabled for the Start button to work. See Enabling Scanner Monitoring for instructions.
Problem PageManager is not installed or the scanner monitor isnt pointing to it.
Solution Make sure you installed PageManager correctly as described in the Scanner Basics book. Also make sure the scanner monitoring utility still points to PageManager as the target application for Start button scanning. See Enabling Scanner Monitoring for instructions. If PageManager starts, but you dont see the EPSON TWAIN window, make sure the destination program or device you assigned to the Start button does not suppress the EPSON TWAIN interface. See Assigning a Destination to the Start Button for details.
When you press the Start button, your system opens programs and scans slowly.
Problem You assigned another destination program to the Start button in PageManager. Solution When you set up PageManager to automatically send files scanned with the Start button to another application, scanning may take longer. This is because your system must use extra resources to open PageManager and EPSON TWAIN, and then scan your image, process it, and send it to another application.
Problems with Image Quality
The image is distorted or blurred.
Problem The document isnt positioned correctly on the document table. Solution Make sure that the document is placed flat against the document table and that no part of the original is wrinkled or warped. You may have moved the document during scanning. Check the position of the document. Make sure the scanner isnt tilted or placed on an unstable surface.
Color is patchy or distorted at the edges of the document.
Problem The document isnt placed correctly on the document table. Solution If the original is very thick or warped at the edges, the edges of the image may be discolored. Cover the edges of the original with opaque paper to avoid interference from outside light. If part of the original is outside the document table, the edge may be discolored. Change the position of the original.
The image is faint or out of focus.
Problem The document isnt positioned correctly on the document table. Troubleshooting Solution Make sure the document is placed flat on the document table.
Problem Your monitor isnt calibrated or isnt adjusted correctly.
Solution Make sure you have calibrated your monitor to your scanner as described in Using the EPSON Screen Calibration Utility. Also check your monitors brightness and contrast settings.
The colors on the monitor seem different than the original image or printed image.
Problem Your monitor may not be calibrated correctly. Solution Depending on your monitor, its resolution/color settings, and your EPSON TWAIN settings, the screen colors may be different from the original colors. This may be normal, especially if the colors in the printed image more closely match the original. Make sure you have correctly calibrated the screen as described in Using the EPSON Screen Calibration Utility. Check which image type tab you are scanning from to make sure it is correct for the type of image youre scanning and for the output device youre using. See Selecting Settings for instructions on changing these settings. The colors in the printed image may not match the original image exactly because the scanning and printing processes use two different color interpreting technologies. Use the Quality (ICM/sRGB for Windows 98 or ColorSync for Macintosh) setting in EPSON TWAIN to more closely match the colors. See Selecting Settings for instructions. EPSON TWAIN is optimized to work with EPSON inkjet printers. See your printer documentation to change the color matching setting or other printer driver settings.
