4. Connecting the LS-1000

4.1 Before Connection

For an IBM PC/AT or compatible in which an SCSI board has not been installed, install an SCSI board as explained in the manual supplied with the board. When installing an SCSI board for the first time, be careful not to use the same number as used for another purpose such as an I/O address, interrupt number, or graphic board DMA channel. Note: Make sure that the PC is powered off before installing the SCSI board.
Before connecting the cables, confirm that all devices, including the computer system and the LS-1000, are turned off. POWER OFF

POWER ON

- 19 -
4.2 Connecting the Power Cord
Before connecting the power cord, confirm that the units power switch is in the off position. Insert the female end of the supplied power cord into the AC inlet located on the rear panel, then insert the plug into the AC power outlet.
The power source must be grounded.
If possible, try to use an independent electric outlet. If the unit is connected to an outlet to which an electric household appliance, such as a vacuum cleaner or air-conditioner, is connected, the product may experience power source noise interference. Do not extend the power cord of the product, as this may cause malfunction.

- 20 -

4.3 Connecting the SCSI Cable
Before connecting the SCSI cable, confirm that all SCSI devices, including the computer system, have been turned off. Connect the unit to the computer using the SCSI cable. After attaching the connector, be sure to lock it in place. You can connect the SCSI cable to either of the SCSI connectors on the rear panel of the unit.

- 21 -

If the unit is the only connected SCSI device, or if the unit is connected at the end of the SCSI chain, attach a terminator (terminal resistance) to the other SCSI connector. At this point, remove the terminator of the other SCSI device that has been placed between them. The terminator is not needed when the unit is connected between other SCSI devices.
When SCSI devices are connected, connect them so as not to make a loop, and attach terminators to both ends of the SCSI chain. Since the terminator is built into the host computer in most cases, the host computer should be at the end of the SCSI chain. The operation manuals of some notebook computers require a terminator to be attached outside the computer; please refer to the operation manual for the computer to which the unit is connected. Note: The SCSI cable used for SCSI connection should be of highimpedance type.

Terminator

- 22 -
SCSI Chain Connection with Other Devices
If the LS-1000 is connected at the end of the SCSI chain; Connect the 50-pin full pitch connector of the SCSI cable to the SCSI connector located on the rear panel of the Unit, and insert the other end to the SCSI connector of other SCSI device. Connect the supplied terminator (terminal resistance) to the other SCSI connector on the rear panel of the Unit.
If LS-1000 is connected between the other SCSI devices; Connect the 50-pin full pitch connector of the SCSI cable to the SCSI connector located on the rear of the Unit, and insert the other end to the SCSI connector of other SCSI device. Connect the other SCSI device by using the other SCSI connector on the rear panel of the Unit. Connect the supplied terminator (terminal resistance) to the SCSI device connected at the end of SCSI chain.

Terminator Terminator

- 23 -
Remarks The maximum number of SCSI devices that can be connected to one computer is eight. In the case of a host computer with a built-in SCSI hard disk or built-in CD-ROM, note that SCSI ID numbers have been pre-assigned for the host CPU and the SCSI devices. The SCSI cable must not be extended beyond a total length of 19 feet (6 meters), or else failure may result. If you use the type of terminator that is inserted between the SCSI cable and SCSI interface connector, install a terminator independent of the other SCSI connector of the LS-1000. Terminators must be attached to the devices located at both ends of the SCSI chain. If the host computer is a Macintosh, the Macintosh itself will provide termination at one end of the chain. If the host computer is an IBM PC/AT or compatible, equipped with an SCSI board, the SCSI board itself will present termination at one end of the chain. Note that when an SCSI chain connection is made inside a computer, the end of the SCSI device inside the computer will become the end terminal.
Before installing an SCSI board, be sure to read the users manual provided with the board. The numbers for the I/O address, interrupt level (INT) and DMA channel might be used for other interface boards and peripheral devices. If so, change them as explained in the manual.

- 24 -

4.4 Setting the SCSI ID
The SCSI ID for the LS-1000 is set at 5 when the unit is shipped. If other SCSI devices are connected to your computer, make sure that the SCSI ID for the LS-1000 is different from those assigned to other SCSI devices.
Remarks To change the ID, confirm that the LS-1000 power is off. The ID cannot be changed when the power is on. As 7 has been assigned for the CPU and 0 has been assigned to the built-in hard disk for a Macintosh, and 0 and 7 have also been assigned to other personal computer systems, any number from 1 to 6 is recommended for the ID number. If the same ID numbers are assigned, the system might not function, or important data on the hard disk might be destroyed. It is therefore essential to check the ID numbers carefully before connecting the LS-1000.

Note that in the case of a host computer which has a built-in SCSI hard disk or built-in CD-ROM, the ID numbers of the host CPU and each SCSI device have already been assigned. If the IDs are the same, you must change the ID number of the other SCSI device or the ID of the LS-1000 to avoid any conflict.

- 25 -

5. Operation

5.1 Turning on the Power

Turn the LS-1000 on first, the other SCSI devices next, and the host computer last. After turning the power on, the LED will begin to blink to indicate scanner initialization. POWER ON
Remarks To turn the LS-1000 power off, turn the host computer off first, the other SCSI devices next, and the LS-1000 last (reverse order from switching on). Once the power is turned off, please wait five seconds or more before turning the power on again. Do not turn the power on/off while the scanner is scanning.

- 26 -

5.2 Film Insertion
The LS-1000 can scan different types of 35mm positive/negative monochrome/color images. In addition, it can scan a film strip of up to 6 images or single mounted film.
Insert the mounted slide lengthways until it touches the back inner wall.
Insertion of Mounted slides
The LS-1000 can scan mounted slides as they are. Confirm that the thickness of the mounted slides to be scanned is between 1.1mm and 3.0mm. Ensure that the emulsion surface is facing in the proper direction. When the LS-1000 is installed vertically, insert the mounted slide so that the emulsion surface is facing toward the right (shiny surface facing left). When the LS-1000 is installed horizontally, insert the mounted slide so that the emulsion surface is facing downward (shiny surface facing upward). * All film has an emulsion surface and a base surface. The emulsion surface is slightly convex and concave. The base surface is neither concave nor convex and is shinier than the emulsion surface.
Note: Do not insert the mounted slide so that the width and length of the mount are reversed. If you do so, the LS-1000 will not be able to scan both sides of the mounted slide. - 27 -
