​Is Your Office Ready to go Paperless?

Why go Paperless

By Large Documents - December 6, 2017

There are many reasons businesses may decide to scan and archive documents, and several advantages in doing so.  Probably the most important idea behind the process would be the security it affords you.  The problem of “losing” important documents or searching thorough endless file cabinets for a missing piece of paperwork would be a thing of the past.  Everything you need would be accessible with a few keystrokes.  Another benefit would be the ability to enhance older documents to make them easier to read.  Through simple manipulations and adjustments on your scans, certain images become more focused and clear.  If you feel like going paperless is the wave of the future for your office, give Large Document Solutions s a call and we will help you find the easiest, most cost efficient way to make that a reality!

​How to Avoid Shipping Mishaps and Extra Charges

Shipping Mishaps

By Large Documents - August 17, 2017

So, you’ve made the excellent choice to order a large format scanner from Large Document Solutions—what happens next? 

One detail that sometimes gets overlooked is shipping specifics.  Most of the freight companies have certain regulations they use when shipping products.  In order to avoid any delays or unexpected charges, be sure to let us know of any special details that might be involved. 

Some things to consider:
Does your business have special hours?  Freight companies will sometimes charge an extra fee if they attempt a delivery and no one is available to receive the shipment.  If you let us know ahead of time, we can specify any special hours.

Do you have the strength to receive your order?  This may seem funny, but many of our models are quite heavy and you may need to have help maneuvering them around once they arrive.  For a small additional fee, we can request an extra driver to assist.  We can also ask for “Inside Delivery”, where the delivery driver can actually come into your business and assist with placement.  Another option for a minimal fee is a lift gate, just in case your business does not have a loading dock.

Knowing about these options are available can be very beneficial to the delivery process.  Now that you have placed your order, feel free to let us know any special details that might help with making the procedure as quick and easy as possible.

Graphtec Scanner Consistently Runs in Reverse

How to fix a Graphtec Scanner that continually runs in reverse

By Large Documents - August 16, 2017

Graphtec scanners especially the IS and CS models are very good scanners that are durable, travel well, and are easy to use.  Large Document Solutions uses them in our rental pool with excellent results. 

There are times when debris gets caught in the paper detection sensors.  If the debris is logged in the back sensor, the scanner will think it needs to eject the paper and the effect is the scanner will run in reverse continually until the debris is removed.  Here is a picture of the back sensor on an IS210 scanner:

Here is what the scanner is thinking, because of the scanner thinks there is paper in the back sensor (A) of the scanner but the front sensor (B) has no paper.  The only logical action for the scanner to do is move the paper in reverse until the front sensor detects the paper and the back sensor does not.  The scanner is trying to position the paper in the “Start scanning position” or “Load position”.

The solution to fixing this problem is to clean the back sensor with compressed air or a Q-Tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol.  After this is completed.  It is standard procedure at Large Document Solutions to clean the rollers, glass, and finally do a calibration using the Graphtec Utility application. 

Any questions about this process contact Large Document Solutions.  They have capable technicians who can help you through this process.  They can be contacted via email at info@largedocuments.com or by phone (866) 338-4464.

Image Access Preventative Maintenance Procedures - You can do it, we can help

Protecting your large format scanner investment

By Large Documents - August 2, 2017

Image Access Preventative Maintenance Procedures
Preventative maintenance of your large format scanner is very important.  Protecting your investment is smart business.  Most scanners can be serviced by the customer with a little help. Take for example, the scanners made by Image Access.  These scanners are very well made.  For starters, the entire case is made with a metal shell. Other scanners in the industry have a plastic outer shell.  The scan heads are sealed guaranteeing a no maintenance product.  The following is a list defining what is done during a preventative maintenance visit:
  1. Upgrade service pack & firmware.
  2. Clean soft rollers with a cotton cloth with water only.
  3. Clean glass with 90% Isopropyl alcohol and a clean cotton or microfiber cloth.
  4. Run the White Balance calibration.
  5. Run stitching calibration if needed.
  6. Clean case.
With a little help via over the phone or via a web meeting all these items can be accomplished by the customer. 
If you own an Image Access, Colortrac, Contex, or Graphtec scanner, give us a call we can walk you through the maintenance of your large format scanner.
