About the CheXpress® CX30
The CheXpress® CX30 Small Business & Remote Deposit Scanners is an easy-to-use,
compact, scanner that connects to a personal computer (PC). The CheXpress® CX30
automatically scans the front and/or back of checks and also reads the MICR (Magnetic
Ink Character Recognition) code line. The images and data are then transmitted through
a Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface to the PC. The CX30 model has a single item
manual ‘drop & slide’ feeder that offers several modes of operation. The default mode is
a Scan & Return operation. Other options are Pass Thru and Scan, Park & Return.
These are controlled through the application and by the exit door position.
The CX30 model is rated at up to 30 documents per minute (DPM) scanning speed.
Speeds and will vary based on the applications used, the PC processing speeds and
mode of operation.
The CX30 uses mini-connectors in a recessed area in the bottom cover along with
multiple cable channels to minimize desk foot print and increase placement options. The
scanner does not use an On / Off switch, but does have a momentary ‘Reset Button’
that can be pressed to reload the scanner application. The CX30 is powered off when
the PC powers down as it senses the loss of power to the USB port.

The CheXpress® CX30 was designed to be a manual ‘drop & slide’ feeder. If you
notice feeding problems, check the documents for bent or folded edges and for debris in
CheXpress® CX30 User’s Manual_Rev 020309
the scanner document track. If feeding problems are still experienced, try cleaning the
scanner using a CheXpress® cleaning card and the procedures described within this
users guide.
Check Images are streaking or fading
If you notice either streaking or fading on the images, the scanheads may require
cleaning. Refer to the section below on cleaning the scanheads.
CheXpress® CX30 Operator Maintenance
Cleaning the CheXpress® CX30
Over time, ink, dirt and dust particles will collect on the scanner rollers and document
track. Therefore, it is necessary to clean these areas on a regular basis to assure
reliable performance. Tips for performing preventative maintenance by the user on the
CheXpress® CX30 include:
A Periodic inspection of the document track area can be done. You can open the
outer scanhead door to look at each scanhead. (fig. 10)
Have a can of compressed air available to blow out the document track on a
regular basis. The area below the outer scanhead is a dust collection bin. Be
sure to blow out this area when doing periodic cleaning.
Purchase the CheXpress® cleaning cards to have on hand for regular cleaning
maintenance. Run several scan cycles, flipping the card between cycles. Allow
the card to scan through the entire path with the exit door open. Run this through
several times while flipping the card end to end and top to bottom.
Inspect the quality of the captured images on a regular basis. If the image quality
drops off, inspect and clean the scanheads following the procedure to open the
out scanhead door and wipe down the camera surfaces. If this does not correct
the problem, contact your service provider.
CheXpress® CX30 User’s Manual_Rev 020309
Cleaning the Scanner
1. Compressed Air – (acquired from a local office supply provider)
2. Cleaning Cards – Consisting of one box of 25 cleaning cards – (#IS0028)
3. Cleaning Kit – Consisting of box of 25 cleaning cards & 6 cleaning swabs – (#130007-03)

Helpful Hints
The ScanLite program, which is available from the Digital Check web site, is an excellent
utility to run while performing the cleaning procedures recommended below. ScanLite
provides an easy way to initiate the scan cycles in order to feed the cleaning cards properly
through the scanner. ScanLite also includes an ‘Eject’ button which operates the scanner at
half its normal speed, making it easy to run the cleaning cards while they are still wet.
1. Do not use stickers to cover up previously sprayed numbers on documents. The
backing from the stickers can rub off onto the rollers and cause documents to
2. Do not use “White Out” on scanned documents, the “White Out” can rub off the
documents onto the scanner path and walls.
3. Watch for loose debris getting into the scanner such as staples and rubber bands.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many checks per minute should my CX30 scan?
The CX30 is a manual feed scanner and its performance is dependent upon the operator. The
CX30 has a rated speed of aproximately 30 documents per minute (DPM) in scan and return
mode. Actual throughput will vary depending on the PC configuration, physical size of the items
scanned, mode of operation, Pass Thru, Scan & Return, or Scan- Park & Return and ultimately
the operators proficiency. For a typical operator, the expected speed range is 10- 20 DPM.
‘Why Am I Getting Skewed or Short Images’?
If you notice that the images are skewing or coming up short, pay attention to inserting the
documents flat into the entry tray and sliding them into the path. Documents inserted with a tilt
or skew can be pulled into the scanner tilted and can cause image quality issues.
What is the proper sequence of the LED lights when the scanner is powered on?
The proper LED sequence is for the LED to come on ‘red’ when it is attached to power and to
the PC. This is followed by the LED turning ‘green’ once the application has been launched. If
the LED does not come on ‘red’, check the USB cable connection and the power. If the LED is
‘red’, but will not turn ‘green’, contact customer support for assistance with checking firmware
and reloading the drivers.
What is a safe distance to keep the power supply from the CX30 check scanner to
prevent electromagnetic interference with the MICR read head in the scanner?
Keep power supplies and other electromagnetic devices 10-12 inches away from the scanner to
keep them from interfering with the Magnetic read head.
How often should the CX30 check scanner be cleaned?
The recommended cleaning cycle is only as needed. A typical cycle may be once every six to
twelve months. Please reference the cleaning instructions section for specific instructions on
how to properly clean the CX30.
How many characters does the HP C6602A inkjet cartridge yield?
Once opened, the practical life of the inkjet cartridge is six months. However, the rated
character yield on the inkjet cartridge is between 5-7 million characters. Do not shake or drop to
cartridge which can cause the printing to fail. Keep a spare cartridge on hand in case the current
cartridge cannot be used.
What are the minimum and maximum document dimensions for the CX30?
