Please Provide Basic Instructions For Programming My Scanner

Hello. I appreciate any help that is offered to me. I recently my scanner as a gift. I am having great difficulty understanding how to use it. I think I programmed the trunked frequencies because when I chose srch the ids flashed on the screen. The next confusion is creating IDS. The manual describes everything in a complicated way. I was wondering if anyone could send basic instructions from all the steps. Thank you very much for your help. Alisa

Hi, I am having great difficulty capturing video, frames are dropping continually plus there is no footage display on the monitor window. Footage allready within the program plays back OK. Any help that...

Hello bazmaz
You need a very powerfull computer to capture and edit video , at least a Pentium 4 at 3GHz , 2 GB RAM . You will still probably loose frames in High Quality mode , meaning a recent Intel 7 series will give the best results .
I have myself experienced that the best results are obtained with a stand alone DVD recorder , preferably with a HD included . This is really the best way .

Visioneer One Touch 8700 USB Scanner lock mechanism problems

Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but I encountered the same error and only to find that I plugged in a wrong power adapter so it didn't have enough power to advance the scanner head (My moving caused this mixup). Check your power adapter OUTPUT is 12V (or whatever is specified on the scanner itself, usually found on the label on the bottom or rear).

Without the model number, I can't supply the belt number or size. These belts do stretch over time. If we can find the correct one, the belt shouldn't be more than $8-$10. If you aren't far from Lancaster, there is a flea market there that has a repair booth. You can try there as well.

Fi 5120c will not scan sheets that have different color entries

Check the software settings in the scanning software. Try running scandisk in the OS. Check if the scanner is working with any other comp. If it works, may be your OS is corrupted.

Hello there,
there are clear pictures on page 29 and 29 of the instruction manual. The card will only go in one way -so don't attempt to force it .

If this works, please rate 'fixya'

If it does not then come back to me and we can try something else!
