You need to reinstall EPSON
Image Authentication System
(IAS) on
your camera if it was installed before your camera was repaired. Please see
your EPSON Image Authentication System User's Guide for instructions.
IAS software lets you check the authenticity of photos taken with your
700, 750Z, 800, or 850Z camera. IAS detects
when even a single bit of digital data in a picture has been altered. If you
don't have IAS installed on your camera and would like to learn more about
it, call 1-800-GO EPSON, or visit our website at http//
