Handling

 

Note the following precautions whenever using the scanner. Failure to do so may result in a fire or electric shock.

  • Never place alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other flammable substances near the scanner.
  • Do not allow water or flammable substances (alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, etc.) to spill inside the scanner, as this may result in a fire or electric shock.
  • Do not cut, damage, or modify the USB cable. Do not place heavy objects on the cable, and do not pull or excessively bend the cable.
  • Never connect the USB cable when your hands are wet.
  • Do not knot or coil the USB cable, as this may result in a fire or electric shock.
  • Use only the USB cable supplied with the scanner.
  • Do not attempt to dismantle the scanner or modify it in any way, as this is dangerous and may result in a fire or electric shock.
  • Do not use flammable aerosol spray products near the scanner.
  • When cleaning the scanner, turn the scanner OFF and disconnect the USB cable.
  • When disconnecting the USB cable, grasp it firmly by its connector. Do not pull directly on the USB cable, as this may damage or expose the cable's wiring, resulting in a fire or electric shock.
  • Clean the scanner using a slightly dampened cloth that has been well wrung out. Never use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or any other flammable substance.
  • If the scanner makes strange noises, or gives off smoke, heat, or strange odors, or the scanner does not function or other abnormalities occur when you use the scanner, immediately close the feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable. Then, contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service representative for further information.
  • Do not drop the scanner, or subject it to impact or strong shock. Should the scanner ever become damaged, immediately close the feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable. Then, contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service representative for further information.
  • Before moving the scanner, make sure to close the feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable.

 

 

  • Do not install the scanner on a surface that is unstable, tilted, or subject to excessive vibrations. Doing so may cause the scanner to fall, resulting in personal injury or damage to the scanner.
  • Never place small objects, such as staples, paper clips, or jewelry on the scanner. These items may fall into the scanner and cause a fire or electric shock. If such objects ever fall inside the scanner, immediately close the feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable. Then, contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service representative to have the unit serviced.
  • Do not locate the scanner in a humid or dusty location. Doing so may result in a fire or electric shock.
  • Do not place objects on top of the scanner. Such objects may tip or fall over, resulting in personal injury.
  • Leave sufficient space around the USB cable so that it can be disconnected easily. If objects are placed around the USB cable, you will be unable to disconnect it in an emergency.
  • If you will not be using the scanner for an extended period of time, such as during consecutive holidays, disconnect the USB cable for safety.
  • Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that may get caught in the scanner while you are using it. This may result in personal injury. Be extra careful of neckties and long hair. If anything becomes caught in the scanner, immediately disconnect the power to stop the scanner.
  • Be careful when placing paper in the scanner and when removing jammed paper. It is possible to cut your hand on the edge of a sheet of paper.
