Scanner Care


All scanners which do not have –IX in the model name require initial calibration before scanning. 

Any scanner ending with –IX comes pre-calibrated from the factory. No initial calibration is required. However, calibration may be needed if image quality declines.

If you notice a decline in image quality, it’s time to clean and re-calibrate your scanner. Scanner calibration is recommended once every three months. Generally, the best indicator of a needed cleaning is the appearance of any black streaks, or if your auto-crop/auto-size functions stop working on scans.
