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

I,m not sure I would run the printer test three times or run diagnostic at all that close to actoal use. Running the printer 3 times without power defeats the overnight charging to me.
I would run dia. a few days ahead.

Once I'd tested the scanner I wouldn't go into diagnostic mode.  You've got a good chance that someone will accidentally change the settings.  I would not follow the procedures you've set out.  Sorry for the late response but I was on vacation.  I think you improve the chance of screwing up the system settings.  Plus, these are pretty much weeds in the forest relative to central count.

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
