Ricoh Scanner FAQ

There is no charge for scanning documents. However, you should not scan (or copy) copyrighted material. Select the scan function by pressing the Scanner button on the left of the display panel. Here are the simplified and advanced displays which you will see when you do this:

 simple display: Scan-display-simple.gif
 advanced display: Scan-display.gif

Here is a quick rundown of the things most people might want to change

  • Default Scan Settings:
 these are set to 200 dpi, grayscale and single sided.
 Click on the SCAN button in the upper left block to change these options.
  • Setting the e-mail destination:
 You will probably want to change the e-mail destination. If this is the first time you have 
 done this, you should press the  display settings toggle in the lower right hand corner to get 
 the advanced display. Press the manual entry button (labeled 4) to enter your e-mail 
 address on the LCD keyboard which will appear.  Most people in the Math Dept have had their 
 e-mail addresses pre-entered, so you should see yours after you type the first few letters.

Once you have entered your e-mail address, you should be able to reach it by clicking on the key which corresponds to the first letter of your Math Dept e-mail address.
