Erase the Parameter Block in the Scanner
The Scanner has a memory block called the Parameter block. The Parameter
block contains the following:
Stitching values camera transition a/b and b/c
Basic calibration information
Level for uncorrected light profile
Corrected light profile
Camera matching, gray
NTSC color space
sRGB color space
Date of the last calibration
The information that is stored in the Parameter block is gathered during the
calibration of the scanner (Scanner Maintenance).
In rare instances, the stored values will vary too greatly from current read
values, which can cause the scanner to report an error. The easiest way to
solve this problem is to erase the Parameter block.
