Who is covered:
 This limited warranty (“warranty”) is given only to the original end-use/retail purchaser (referred to in
this warranty as “Original Purchaser”) of the accompanying Scanner, consumables and accessories
(collectively referred to in this warranty as “this Scanner”).
 If you purchased a Scanner from someone other than an authorized Brother reseller in the United
States or if the Scanner was used (including but not limited to floor models or refurbished Scanners by
someone other than Brother), prior to your purchase you are not the Original Purchaser and the
Scanner that you purchased is not covered by this warranty.
What is covered:
 This Scanner includes a Scanner and may include Consumable and Accessory Items. Consumable
and Accessory Items may include but are not limited to USB Cable, photo sleeves, calibration sheets
and cleaning sheets.
 Except as otherwise provided herein, Brother warrants that the Scanner and the accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be free from defects in materials and workmanship, when used
under normal conditions.
 This warranty applies only to Scanners purchased and used in the United States. For Scanners
purchased in, but used outside, the United States, this warranty covers only warranty service within
the United States (and does not include shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:
 Scanner: one year from the original purchase date.
 Accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items: 90 days from the original purchase date or the
rated life of consumable, whichever comes first.
What is NOT covered:
This warranty does not cover:
1 Physical damage to this Scanner;
2 Damage caused by improper installation, improper or abnormal use, misuse, neglect or accident
(including but not limited to transporting this Scanner without the proper preparation and/or packaging);
3 Damage caused by another device or software used with this Scanner (including but not limited to
damage resulting from use of non Brother™-brand parts and Consumable and Accessory Items);
4 Consumable and Accessory Items that expired in accordance with a rated life;
5 Problems arising from other than defects in materials or workmanship.
6 Normal Periodic Maintenance Items beyond the rated life, such as Separation Pad and Pick-up

Page: 5
v
What to do if you think your Scanner is eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to our Customer Service Hotline at 1-877-BROTHER (1-877-276-8437) within the applicable
warranty period. Supply Brother with a copy of your dated bill of sale showing that this Scanner was purchased
within the U.S.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother you will be required to send the Scanner properly packaged, freight prepaid, to Brother
together with a photocopy of your bill of sale. Brother will provide a Return Authorization Number (i.e RA#) that
must be written on the outside of the carton that contains your Scanner and instruction to where you
should return your Scanner. You are responsible for the cost of shipping, packing the Scanner, and
insurance (if you desire). You are also responsible for loss or damage to this Scanner in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items is
covered by this warranty and if you first reported the problem to Brother within the applicable warranty period,
Brother will repair or replace the Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items at no charge to
you for parts or labor. The decision as to whether to repair or replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items is made by Brother in its sole discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply a
refurbished or remanufactured replacement Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items and
use refurbished parts provided such replacement Scanners conform to the manufacturer’s specifications for new
Scanner/parts. The repaired or replacement Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items
will be returned to you freight prepaid.
If the Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items are not covered by this warranty (either
stage), you will be charged for shipping the Scanner and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items
back to you and charged for any service and/or replacement parts/Scanners at Brother’s then current rates.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and exclusive remedies under this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to replace your Scanner:
Brother will send to you a replacement Scanner shipped for receipt within two business days, with the
understanding that you will, after receipt of the replacement Scanner, supply the required proof of purchase
information, together with the Scanner that Brother agreed to replace. You are then expected to pack the Scanner
that Brother agreed to replace in the package from the replacement Scanner and return it to Brother using the
pre-paid freight bill supplied by Brother in accordance with the instructions provided by Brother. The replacement
Scanner you receive (even if refurbished or remanufactured) will be covered for the balance of the limited warranty
period remaining on the original Scanner, plus an additional thirty (30) days. You will keep the replacement Scanner
that is sent to you and your original Scanner shall become the property of Brother. Since you will be in
possession of two machines, Brother will require that you provide a valid major credit card number. Brother will
issue a hold against the credit card account number that you provide until Brother receives your original Scanner
and determines that your original Scanner is entitled to warranty coverage. Your credit card will be charged up to
the cost of a new Scanner only if: (i) you do not return your original Scanner to Brother within five (5) business days;
(ii) the problems with your original Scanner are not covered by the limited warranty; (iii) the proper packaging
instructions are not followed and has caused damage to the Scanner; or (iv) the warranty period on your original
Scanner has expired or has not been sufficiently validated with a copy of the proof of purchase (bill of sale). Retain
your original Accessory Items and a copy of the return freight bill, signed by the courier.

Limitations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or loss of any equipment, media, programs or data related to the use of
this Scanner. Except for the repair or replacement as described above, Brother shall not be liable for any direct,
indirect, incidental or consequential damages or specific relief. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or
limitation of consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR ORAL, WHETHER
EXPRESSED BY AFFIRMATION, PROMISE, DESCRIPTION, DRAWING, MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY AND ALL

state.
 This Limited Warranty (and Brother’s obligation to you) may not be changed in any way unless you
and Brother sign the same piece of paper in which we (1) refer to this Scanner and your bill of sale
date, (2) describe the change to this warranty and (3) agree to make that change.
Important: We recommend that you keep all original packing materials, in the event that you ship this

Welcome — Introduction to Your DSmobile® Scanner
Congratulations on purchasing a DSmobile 700D document scanner!
We have designed this product to provide you with a simple but effective tool to capture, manage, and archive
documents of many types. We encourage you to read this User’s Guide carefully.
Your DSmobile 700D scanner Installation DVD comes with WHQL certified and/or tested drivers for
Windows® 7, Windows Vista® and Windows® XP operating systems. The Windows® 7 and Windows
Vista® drivers work with both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. This product features TWAIN 1.9 compatible
and Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) drivers that will work with any of your TWAIN/WIA-compliant
imaging applications. These TWAIN/WIA drivers are automatically installed for the DSmobile 700D when you
load the Windows® drivers. If you experience any difficulty with any of these drivers, please check our website
http://www.brother.com to verify that you are using the latest version.
For your convenience, a version of PageManager® is included on the Installation DVD. This software program
allows you to scan and organize your digital files with the ability to view, edit, send, and save them. It will also
output various selectable file formats. Note that DSmobileSCAN II software outputs Adobe® PDF files as well
as .JPG and .TIF files. Please follow the on-screen instructions. For help with how to use this software, please
use the help facility within PageManager®.
Scanning using Apple® Mac OS® X is supported by a Mac® TWAIN driver using the “Image Capture” software
provided on the Macintosh®. This driver is included in the software DVD but must be manually installed. You
can also download the DSmobile 700D Mac OS® X driver from http://www.brother.com.
In the event that you have previously installed a driver for the DS700D (Windows: Ver B1.0.6 or below,
Macintosh: Ver B1.2.4 or below) and DSmobileSCANII (Ver 2.0.12 or below), your new scanner may not be
compatible with this driver and software. Brother recommends installing the latest driver and software from
the DVD that came with your scanner or download it from the web at http://solutions.brother.com.

CALIBRATION
Note
• Calibration is critical because it allows the image quality to be “balanced” for your computer and scanner
combination. If you switch the computer that you use with your scanner or change scanners, you must
calibrate again.
• Calibration can be performed on any TWAIN-compliant application. DSmobileSCAN II is such an
application.
• When you intend to scan by WIA compliant scanner driver, please conduct a calibration process by TWAIN
compliant scanner driver beforehand.
a To open DSmobileSCAN II application, you can either double-click DSmobileSCAN II shortcut icon on
your desktop or the “Taskbar tray” icon usually in the lower right-hand corner of the Windows®
Desktop.
b Once you have launched DSmobileSCAN II (or any TWAIN application), select the SCAN button and the
step-by-step calibration instructions will appear in a succession of prompts.
This calibration process uses the special black and white calibration sheet (see picture on page xiv) that was
included with your scanner. When calibrating, note the direction of the arrows for proper insertion.
When the calibration process has been completed successfully, you will see the message above; otherwise
you will need to clean the scanner and re-calibrate.
 If you switch scanners or your image quality has become unsatisfactory, you can re-calibrate your scanner
by choosing the CUSTOM button in DSmobileSCAN II window and select the Calibrate button.

 If you lose the black and white calibration paper that was included with your scanner, you can use any
plain “White” (the brighter the “White” the better) piece of letter size (or A4) printer paper to perform the
calibration. Simply fold the paper in half and insert the end opposite the fold into the scanner first when
calibrating. The following message will be displayed (see below).
Note
When the image quality has become unsatisfactory, we recommend you clean the scanner with the
included cleaning sheet (see Tips & Cautions page) and then recalibrate the scanner.

CLEANING THE SCANNER
Note
The cleaning procedure can be initiated in DSMobileScan II software program. It is recommended to place
a few drops of alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol) in the middle of the cleaning sheet.

Mac OS® X Operation
FOR BEST RESULTS, PLEASE INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FROM THE INCLUDED INSTALLATION DVD
PROVIDED BEFORE PLUGGING IN YOUR SCANNER.
Note
As a precaution, a RED warning label has been placed on the USB cable to remind you to install the
Installation DVD first. Please remove this warning label prior to plugging in the scanner cable after you
have installed the software.
SETTING ADMINISTRATOR PRIVILEGES
If installation or calibration is not working on your Macintosh® system, the solution may be in the privileges.
When initially set up, you are given administrator privileges which should allow you to install the DSmobile
software and complete the calibration. If, however, your system is set up such that you do not have
administrator privileges or the privileges have somehow become corrupt, the installation and calibration may
not be possible. To correct this problem, do the following:
a Mouse over the Apple® in the upper left corner of the desktop and select System Preferences.
b Select System and then Users & Groups.
c The left pane of the window will list the current accounts, one of which should be your user name with
the word “Admin” underneath.

CALIBRATION
Calibration is critical because it allows the image quality to be “balanced” for your computer and scanner
combination. If you switch the computer that you use with your scanner or change scanners, you must
calibrate again.
Note that you must be logged in as an Administrator to calibrate the system. See SETTING ADMINISTRATOR
PRIVILEGES uu page 17 for further information.
This calibration process uses the special black and white calibration sheet (see picture on page xiv) that was
included with your scanner. When calibrating, note the direction of the arrows for proper insertion.
If you lose the black and white calibration paper that was included with your scanner, you can use any plain
“White” (the brighter the “White” the better) piece of letter size (or A4) printer paper to perform the calibration.
Simply fold the paper in half and insert the end opposite the fold into the scanner first when calibrating.
The following message will be displayed (see below).
Note
When the image quality has become unsatisfactory, we recommend you clean the scanner with the
included cleaning sheet (see Tips & Cautions page) and then recalibrate the scanner.
Calibrating your DSmobile 700D Scanner using “Image Capture”
Calibration is a critical step in setting up your scanner. It allows the scanned color data to be “calibrated” to
your computer and scanner combination for best image quality. If at any time you switch the computer that
you use with your scanner or change scanners, you will need to calibrate again.
The following steps guide you through calibration of your DSmobile 700D scanner using the built-in “Image
Capture” software on your Mac OS® X along with the Brother driver and GUI. Note that once a calibration is
performed, it does not need to be re-done if you use to another application on the same computer.

Using Scanning Software
DSmobileSCAN II (Windows® Only)
This software supports Adobe® Acrobat® PDF, JPEG, and TIFF. Note that only PDF format files can be saved
as multiple pages. JPEG and TIFF files will be stored as separate files with index numbers added to the
filename (except for the first page).
Using DSmobileSCAN II as Your Default
The advantage of using DSmobileSCAN II as your default is that as a default program it provides the ability
to scan automatically. Pressing the button on top of the scanner once starts DSmobileSCAN II software and
pressing it again starts a document scan.
This program gives the user the choice of selecting type of scan and paper size from the main menu (shown
above) or pressing the “Custom” button to utilize the document manager control panel for more precise
settings. Selecting the custom settings will put the program into a TWAIN driver and takes you out of the
actual DSmobileSCAN II software application.
If the Custom button is used, it cancels the automatic scan function. The user must choose the setting they
wish to make custom, click on “OK” to put the program back to the scanning page, and then click on the green
“Scan” button to scan the page.
If DSmobileSCAN II is not set as the default program, when the button on top of the scanner is pressed, a
window will be displayed requiring you to choose a scanning software as shown in USING YOUR SCANNER
uu page 11. Follow the scanning instructions for the scanning software you have chosen.

A Note about Document Names
You can use a suffix with file names to add either an index number or a date. If you append the filename with
a “%n”, the file name is appended with a sequential number beginning with 1 (if a previous file exists, the
number is incremented to the next highest number). If you append the file name with a “%d”, the file name is
appended with a date in the form YY-MM-DD.
Using DSmobileSCAN II Icon on Your Desktop
An icon ( ) will appear on your desktop after DSmobileSCAN II software installation. Using this icon will
initiate the DSmobileSCAN software but unless DSmobileSCAN II is set as your default it will put it in a
“manual” mode which requires the user to click on the green “SCAN” button to initiate the scan.
If you have chosen DSmobileSCAN II as your default scanning software, pressing the button on the top of
the scanner after DSmobileSCAN II has been launched from the icon will start the scan process.
If you have not chosen DSmobileSCAN II as your default scanning software, pressing the button on the top
of the scanner after DSmobileSCAN II has been launched from the icon will display the “select the program
to launch for this action” window. You can now choose another program from the menu. Although the
DSmobileSCAN window will show in the background, it will not interfere with the other scanning application
you choose. To close DSmobileSCAN II window, you must click on the delete “X” at the top of DSmobileSCAN
II screen. Closing DSmobileSCAN II window will not interfere with your current software application.

TWAIN (FOR WINDOWS®)
The TWAIN driver for the DSmobile 700D is automatically installed when the Installation DVD installs the
Windows® drivers. This TWAIN driver defines communication and data structures between software
applications on your PC and the DSmobile 700D.
All software that appears in the “select the program to launch for this action” window (shown below) will be
TWAIN and WIA-compliant software that is compatible with the DSmobile 700D scanner and allows scanning
from that software program. Each program will initiate scanning differently. Please follow instruction according
to the software program you are using.

If the software you have chosen uses the TWAIN interface instead of the application software interface, the
TWAIN control panel (shown below) will appear. The TWAIN interface will allow you to control all the settings
of the scanner. This type of “fine-adjustment” may be required for some of your document scanning needs.
Please notice the Page Tabs at the top of the TWAIN control panel; they are: Pre-defined Setting, Custom
Settings, Information. Take a moment to explore these Tabs and their functions.
