Test Scanner

This diagnostic exists to test the barcode scanner on the printer. You will need to test barcode scan if, for example, a barcode on a material bottle will not scan properly. In a case such as this, testing the scanner can either confirm or eliminate the scanner as the cause of the issue.

    3. If you performed steps i and ii, and the test scan still does not complete, the scanner is damaged in some way. Call your authorized print-material provider.
