PS 7000

by @ 9:20 am. Filed under Registry Ops

Last month we purchased a Minolta PS 7000 camera. This machine is designed to scan bound books converting them to digital images. Unfortunately, the camera is having problems scanning our larger books. The PS 7000 scans standard size books (8.5X11) fine, but it freezes when a larger book is put in its carriage. Sometimes it freezes immediately, sometimes it scans a few pages then freezes. The vendor has been to the registry three times trying to resolve the problem without success…They changed the settings, room lighting, book covers etc… still the problem persists. We purchased this camera specifically to scan these large “bound” books, so we are obviously disappointed at this time. The problem with the PS 7000 has forced me to
re-think the entire project plan. While we wait for the vendor to solve the problem, I have decided to begin quality check our newer images…these images are in plastic covered books that can be easily disassembled and scanned on a flatbed scanner.
