As a courtesy. Scanner has been photographed on and off, so you may see the display.

On the 4th Line, Below the 3rd Line alphanumeric: “Bank 0 Ch 00”

Underneath the “a” through to “h” on the 4th line appears a shadow.

RadioShack did not indicate this to be a defect. Characters are viewable in these spaces. It may or may not just be the underside of the window.

Scanner has been turned off and on, run with software, and it operates beautifully. Many RadioShack scanner displays of this model are like this.
Imagine if you will, each Alphanumeric space is like a Wheel of Fortune Letter Box.

Estimated 8-9 Letter Boxes on the 4th Row have this shadow.

Keep in mind, Scanner’s available space is, 4 Rows of 12 Alphanumeric spaces. So if you wish to write something longer than 12 Characters, you must abbreviate.
