How do I reconnect my scanner to my computer?

1. Plug the scanner’s power cord into an outlet and turn the scanner on.

2. Connect the scanner to your computer using the appropriate cable. Depending on the model, this could be a USB, Serial, or SCSI connection. If you are unsure which kind of connection your scanner requires, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.

3. Download and install any necessary drivers and software on your computer. Many scanners come with the required software already installed, but others require separate downloads. If you need to download drivers or software, visit the manufacturer’s website and download the most up-to-date version for your scanner. Be sure to read all of the installation instructions before proceeding.

4. Power on your computer as well as your scanner. Next, open the scanning software on your computer. You should see the scanner appear in your list of available devices. If it does not, double-check all of your connections.

5. Once your scanning software recognizes the scanner, you may need to calibrate it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This is usually done by placing a test piece of paper into the scanner and running a calibration scan.

6. After the calibration is complete you can begin using the scanner. Simply place your document onto the scanning bed, open the scanning software, and select the desired settings. When finished, click the “scan” button and your document will be scanned into the software.

7. When you are finished scanning, remember to always close the software before unplugging the scanner or turning it off. Doing so will help prevent any data loss or damage to the scanner’s internal components.
