RE: PLEASE REVIEW & COMMENT: JoCoKs AVOS Central Count Scanner Diagonstics Checklist

There is no need to unplug the feeder while you're running a printer test.  It has no impact on the test.
BTW:  You might want to recharge the battery on the units after this test plan, as you would have drained the battery considerably by running three printer tests on battery power.

Dear fellow support staff, below is Johnson County's current checklist for AVOS scanner diagnostics prior to central count.  I need this reviewed to make sure it includes all the diagnostic type items that need to be tested.  Thanks in advance for any and all help granted.  Lesley
