  2. While pressing the lever at the top, pull the FAU protective sheet forward to remove it.



     
 Important
  • Film scanning is not available when the FAU protective sheet is attached to the document cover.

Placing Film


 Important
  • Hold the film by the edge to avoid smudges and fingerprints.
     

  • Dust on the film or platen appears in scanned images. Remove dust from the film and platen.
     

  • Do not block the calibration slot (A) on the film guide when scanning. If the slot is blocked, the film cannot be scanned in correct colors.



     
  • A sticker label attached to the margin of the film may be recognized as an image.
     

  • Close the document cover gently.

When the 120 Format Film is Curled (How to Use the Film Retainer Sheet)

If a curled film touches the platen while scanning, circular stripe patterns (Newton's rings) may appear in scanned images.

To scan a curled 120 format film, flatten it using the supplied film retainer sheet.
 

 Important
  • Do not cover the frames you want to scan with the film retainer sheet.

  • Place the film retainer sheet so that the glossy side (the side without illustrations) touches the film. Otherwise, it may damage the film.

  • Do not rub the film with the film retainer sheet. It may damage the film.
     
  1. Load the film into the film guide correctly, with the front side of the film (the side on which images appear correctly) facing down.

    The long sides of the film are curled up.
     

  2. With the glossy side (the side without illustrations) facing up, insert the film retainer sheet (A) under the edge of the film.



     
  3. Close the film holder (B) and secure it into the film guide.

    The entire film is pressed flat with the film holder
    .

     Note
    • If Newton's rings still appear after scanning with the above method, the film is heavily warped.

      Try the following method.
       

      1. Turn over the film and load it into the film guide, with the front side of the film (the side on which images appear correctly) facing up.

      The long sides of the film are curled down.
       

      2. With the rough side (illustrated side) facing up, place the film retainer sheet (A) on the edge of the film.



       

      3. Close the film holder and secure it into the film guide.
       

      4. After preview, click (Mirror) on the Toolbar of ScanGear (scanner driver) to invert the images, then click Scan.
