If you’re looking to see how some of the Duo-Scan:Go functions work, view our quick guide.
Make sure you’re pressing and holding the button until the power LED illuminates (approximately 3 seconds).
Make sure that the scanner is charged, the Wi-Fi LED will illuminate when the Duo-Scan Go is correctly located on the charger, it will extinguish when charging is complete.

If the scanner is fully charged, then the Wi-Fi LED will not illuminate.
If the scanner is not fully charged, then check that the adapter in the wall socket is fully plugged in and that the socket is switched on, check the USB cable between the adapter and the charger is properly connected.
If possible, try a different charger, cable or adapter to eliminate the possibility that one or more are faulty.
The scanner might be set to the pregnant/not-pregnant option.
Go to machine settings and check that freeze in the scanner button selection is highlighted.
The scanner sends data across Wi-Fi, if there are any other networks on the same channel, they can cause interference. You can change the channel of your scanner like this:
With the scanner switched on, but no viewing devices connected ( Wi-Fi led will be flashing), press the power button twice, the scanner will hop to the next channel.
There are various apps available that you can use to check for other, interfering, networks usually they are called Wifi Analyzer or similar.
The scanner run time is highly dependent on use. When it detects a lack of contact, it enters a low-power mode.
If the probe face has a lump of gel or dirt on it, then the scanner will see the contact and will not enter low power mode, shortening the run-time. Make sure that your scanner enters low power mode by giving the probe face a quick wipe between scans.
The scanner defaults to a Wi-Fi channel in the 5GHz range. However many older or budget devices do not support this range.
To change to a channel in the 2.4GHz range, with the scanner switched on, but no viewing devices connected (Wi-Fi LED will be flashing), press the power button twice, the scanner will hop to the next channel.
There are various apps available that you can use to check which channel the scanner is using. usually they are called Wifi Analyzer or similar.
Note, we do not recommend using the 2.4GHz band as it is much more susceptible to interference.
The scanner should be delivered to you already licensed, but if you have performed a factory reset, then you will need to retrieve the license from the BCF server.
The app will ask you to connect to the scanner, then to the internet, then to the scanner again, where it will send the license to the scanner.
You need an internet connection in order to retrieve the license.
Try closing the app and going to the Wi-Fi settings page on your device, select the scanner name there and wait until you’re connected, then launch the app.
Scanner updates will only be available if you periodically launch the app while connected to the internet.
Before doing this, be aware that you will need to retrieve the scanner license after completing this procedure, only attempt this if you have an internet connection at your location.
To reset, press and hold the power button until both LEDs show yellow, then release the power button.
