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



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.

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

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
