Appendix B Troubleshooting In general, as long as you follow the maintenance and safety instructions provided in this manual, you should have few problems with your scanner. This chapter provides solutions to some problems that you might encounter. IMPORTANT recommended here solves it, contact your authorized Apple service center. Note: If you have the optional Transparent Media Adapter on your scanner, you should also see the troubleshooting section in Chapter 10.
m The SCSI connection may not be secure. Make sure the SCSI cable between the scanner and the Macintosh is securely fastened. If the scanner is part of a SCSI chain, check all the SCSI cables. When I try to scan, I get a message that says, “The application can’t find the scanner.” m You may not have properly installed the scanner software.
The scanner makes strange noises when I try to scan, and no image is produced. m The scanner carriage may be locked. Make sure the scanner lock is in the unlocked position. For information, see “Locking and Unlocking the Scanner” in Chapter 2. I still have my old Apple OneScanner attached to my Macintosh.
Image quality problems My images have smudges and smears all over them. m The scanner glass and the scanner cover may need cleaning. Use a clean, soft, damp cloth to wipe the glass and cover clean. Scanned images have consistent vertical streaks through them, even though I’ve cleaned the scanner glass.
Appendix C Assembling a SCSI Chain This appendix shows you how to connect a chain of devices to your Macintosh computer. IMPORTANT computer, do not use the instructions in this appendix. Instead, see Chapter 2, “Setting Up the Scanner,” where you’ll find the information you need. About SCSI ID numbers Your Macintosh has an external SCSI port that accepts a SCSI cable.
For example, the internal hard disk drive is, by convention, always assigned SCSI ID 0 (internal). The system software shows the hard disk at that location. You can connect a total of seven internal and external SCSI devices to the Macintosh.
Factory setting The internal terminator for the Apple Color OneScanner is set to “on,” but you can change it. Note: You need an external terminator with the scanner only if you have a Macintosh IIfx or PowerBook computer. The Macintosh IIfx requires a special terminator.
Attach either end of a SCSI peripheral cable to the other port on the back of the first device. If you want the second device to be more than 18 inches away from the first, connect a cable extender to the end of the SCSI peripheral cable. You can use up to 20 feet (6.1 meters) of cables.
