Connecting old IBM color flatbed scanner to new computer


Not likely to work reliably if you get it to work.
The parallel port must be set to communicate in both directions. The SUB to Parallel adapter may be a ONE-WAY communications device.

Get a new (or used) Epson scanner or Epson all-in-one ($50) which includes a scanner and printer! Your new computer may not have the proper drivers for your old IBM scanner, anyway. If you purchase an Epson all-in-one, get a "WorkForce" model - that's their latest product line.

ADF Color Scanner IBM - INTERFACE


The pinout is specific for the original controller ISA board. So, even inserting the voltages (+5v and +12v) in the right pins, it would not be possible to connect to a Paralel port, the pinout is completely different.
I've found the pins to insert power, but this information turned out to be useless, since i cant connect the data pins to any valid port.
Here is what i found:

01 -
02 -
03 -
04 - +12V
05 -
06 - +12V
07 -
08 - +12V
09 -
10 - +12V
11 -
12 - GND
13 - +5V
14 -
15 - +5V
16 -
17 - +5V
18 -
19 -
20 -
21 - GND
22 -
23 - GND
24 -
25 - GND

Conclusion: Even IF you get the original controller board, it use a ISA standard, so your motherboard will not have where to put it, since all motherboards since the 2000's have only PCI slots.

ADF paper jam, when there is none


If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.

Adf for Ricoh IS100E


According to the manual, the part number for the ADF Document Assembly is VRC70001, but you may want to verify this with Ricoh before ordering, because the assembly is not shown in the parts diagram, only listed in the chart.

Hope that helps.

ADF rotate


Remove the 2 thumbscrews fixing the ADF in place. These are found on the underside of the flatbed cover. Look at your "Getting Started" guide book for a picture. Slide the ADF to the middle of the scanner, then rotate it counter-clockwise.

How to disable Fujitsu fi-5750C ADF


Your scanner will never pass the initial boot "test" sequence without getting sensor and light readings. Cut the binding and scan it through the adf and save a few weeks work.

Need help to hook up IBM color flatbed scanner


Attach one end of a parallel port cable to the parallel (printer) port on your computer and the other end of the cable to the computer port on the rear of the scanner. If you have a printer connected to your computer, you must disconnect the printer cable from the computer before connecting the scanner cable.
If you have trouble attaching a cable connector to a port, be sure that you are connecting the correct end of the cable to the correct port.
IF. . . you want to use a printer WITH your scanner, attach one end of the printer cable to the printer port on the rear of the scanner and attach the other end of the cable to the printer.
Plug in power cord and then power up PC.
Power on scanner. Install drivers. Restart PC to activate EZ Station buttons.

How do I scan a bunch of originals from the tray and get 1 file for each page?


Loading originals to scan
Use these instructions to load originals into your device for scanning. For the best quality
scans, use the flatbed scanner. See Selecting media for the automatic document feeder
(ADF) for guidelines on choosing original documents for scanning.
Loading originals onto the flatbed scanner
1. Make sure that the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray is free of media.
2. Lift the flatbed scanner lid.
3. Place the original document face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of
the document at the lower-right corner of the glass.
4. Gently close the lid.
5. The document is ready to be scanned.
CAUTION To prevent damaging the device, do not allow the scanner lid to fall onto the flatbed scanner
surface. Always close the scanner lid when the device is not in use.
Loading originals into the automatic document feeder (ADF)
input tray
Note The ADF capacity is up to 50 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) media (depending on the thickness of
the media), or fewer sheets if the stack fills the ADF.
The minimum size for media in the ADF is 127 by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches). For smaller sizes
use the flatbed scanner. The maximum size for media in the ADF is 215.9 by 381 mm (8.5 by
15 inches).
1. Make sure that the flatbed scanner contains no media.
2. Close the flatbed scanner cover and put the top end of the stack of originals into the ADF
input tray, with the media stack face-up and the first page to be scanned on top of the
stack.
3. Slide the stack into the ADF input tray until it does not move any farther.
