Kodak i40 Front loading scan

Just purchased my 2nd Kodak i40 scanner. On the 1st one i could scan through the front using the special document feeder for small credit cards and driver license's. On the one I just bought I cannot get it to scan through the front. Does anybody know anything about this problem. Did Kodak discontinue this feature on the i40's?

Hi,

Try downloading the latest Firmware for the Kodak i40 Scanner at the following Kodak.com page: http://graphics.kodak.com/docimaging/US/en/Products/Document_Scanners/Desktop/i40_Scanner/Support/Drivers_And_Downloads/i30_and_i40_Scanner_Firmware/index.htm

Follow the instructions carefully, and make sure that the scanner and the PC DO NOT turn off while doing the Firmware update. I recomend connecting both to a UPS with a known good battery while doing this upgrade.

This should install the latest features including the one that enables front feed.

Vertical line in scanned image


This is because of dust sticking to the glass. Clean with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and dont use solvents. For emergency you can use your after shave but take care only to clean the glass portion!

When i scan a letter 2 page is scanned:letter and blank page


You may be set for front & back (duplex) scanning. Change the setting for front only or simplex. This could be done with check/uncheck boxes, a drop-down menu, or a keyboard shortcut. I believe the standard Kodak settings are via check boxes.
This model is also capable of putting out color & bitonal (black&white) images simultaniously. If that's the case the pages should be separate image files. Uncheck either color or bitonal depending on which you want.

Try Calibration routine. If it fails check optics are clean and not scratched. If it still fails change the lamps.The KDS.log is encrypted and can only be accessed via a license key. This is only Available to Kodak reps or through RTS ltd service calls.

Kodak i40 Scanner - paper jamming


First clean with a damp cloth, then try Isopropyl Alcohol. Dont use solvents. Check if papers are sticky. Stapled papers are 'sticky' even after removing staples. loosen them if required. Notmally rollers last 200,000 to 250,000 scans

Scanning problem


May be you have selected multipage option. Then all the pages will be part of the same file, you can view them in 'Windows picture & Fax viwer' You need to page down to see the images. Scan only the first page and check the file size. If this file size and the earlier one are different, then it confirms that you have chosen multipage option!

Acrobat 8.1


Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.

I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.

Error 5


I can't seem to find a error code 5. What software are you using to scan? Did the error start right after your first? Had the scanner been working?

Scaning documents


Try and alter the contrast settings. If the scanner does not pick up 'data' including folds, you'd blame it for non-performance!
