The CanoScan 5600F is a document and film scanning device that is equipped with a high luminance White Light Emitting Diode lamp. This design not only makes use of lesser power but also allows for the immediate enabling of the scanning process. Normally the scanning operation is implemented right after the scan button is pressed or the scan command is issued by the software application. This hardware component is designed with seven built-in buttons that are preconfigured to automate the scanning operation. These buttons have their software based counterpart primarily due to the installation of the appropriate device driver. The device driver can also invoke a proprietary technology that will allow for the implementation of an automatic scanning mode. This will detect the type of the source document and then scan it and eventually save it into a format that will make use of the optimal settings. The scanning operation that can be supported by the device driver can be completed in as fast as 11 seconds.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This flatbed color image scanner makes use of a Charge Coupled Device as its main scanning element. The light source is White Light Emitting Diode for reflective document types and CCFL Lamp for film scanning. This means that when the correct device driver is installed the computer user has the flexibility of scanning either a paper based or film based source. The device driver also supports the implementation of an Automatic Document Recognition mode as well as the automatic reduction of dust and scratches. This is an important feature especially when the source document or film is relatively old. The device driver also supports the automatic creation of a Portable Document Format file from the scanned source. By making use of the correct device driver the computer user can invoke majority of the feature sets from within the working environment of software applications. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and CanoScan 5600F errors before installing any driver updates.
