What level would be appropriate, 21 or something else?

There didn't seem to be a pattern of dpi and/or mode that failed, but of 
the 6 scans I tried the 1st, 3rd, and 5th failed which seems noteworthy. 
  I'm running the scans from a script with a 10 sec delay between each 
scan.   I'll run some more and see if it's consistently every-other-scan 
that's having trouble.
