The Panini check scanner is used in conjunction with the Windows 7 operating system to scan personal checks at businesses. A bad driver or power issue can cause your scanner not to work properly. You can easily troubleshoot your Panini check scanner without having to get in touch with the manufacturer. Microsoft recommends reinstalling the drivers to the check scanner.
Check over the power cord running from the Panini check scanner to the wall outlet.
Make sure there are no frays or breaks in the wiring. If there are frays or breaks, replace the power cord immediately.
Check the wall outlet with a different device to make sure that it is working.
Check the pin on the power cord’s male end to make sure that it is not bent. If it is, replace the power cord.
Check the back of the Panini check scanner where the power cord meets the scanner. Make sure that the power inlet is intact.
