Checking for Obstructions in the Check Scanner Feeder
While cleaning cards are an easy solution for one common problem, if problems persist, you may need to take a closer look inside the check scanner. Removing the top cover of the check scanner allows you to get an inside look to see if there is anything blocking the check feeder track. Utilizing a check scanner spatula may help with getting deeper into the check scanner track and clearing any obstacles you may discover. This simple examination is an empowering way to solve possible check scanner issues. You gain a deeper understanding of how check scanners work, and an inside look keeps you aware of what impacts check scanner functionality.
