What is Scanner?
An image scanner often abbreviated as just a scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object and converts it to a digital image.
Commonly used in offices are variations of the desktop flatbed scanner where the document is placed on a glass window for scanning.

How often should I clean my scanner?
You should clean the inside of the scanner at least once a week or after 1,000 pages have been scanned. If you are getting frequent paper jams,
multiple pages feeding at the same time, or you’re seeing lines in the scanned image, it is time to clean the scanner.
How long should a scanner last?
While most scanners have a lifespan of about 500,000 scans, there is often a fix to get your check scanner in working condition once again.
How do you make a scan clearer?
Increase your default resolution. If your scanner is set to a default resolution of 200dpi, bump that up to a minimum of 300dpi.
Your final file size will be larger, but the resulting documents will be of much better quality.
