  • clip_image010 NEVER take the scanner off the tripod until it has completely shut down and the FAN HAS TURNED OFF*.


*If the fan has not turned off after several minutes, and it is not excessively hot outside, the scanner may not have shutdown properly. In this case, press down the power button and wait for three beeps (beep.. pause… beep beep). This will result in a hard shut down of the system.
