    Solid greenReady to scan.
    Flashing greenInitializing (warming up) or scanning.
    Flashing redAn error has occurred.
    OffThe scanner is off.
    If the start button light is flashing red, it is because of one of the following problems:
    • The scanner is not connected to your computer properly or your software is not fully installed.
    • The transportation lock is locked. Slide the lock to the unlock position.
    After trying these solutions, unplug the scanner to turn it off, then plug it back in.
