Solution

Placing Items (Scanner Glass)

Place items on the scanner glass as described below to scan by detecting the item type and size automatically.

 Depending on your model, the function to scan by automatically detecting the item type and size does not appear.

 When scanning by specifying the paper size, align an upper corner of the item with the corner at the arrow (alignment mark) of the platen.

 Photos that have been cut to irregular shapes and items smaller than 1.2 inches (3 cm) square cannot be cropped accurately when scanning.

 Reflective disc labels may not be scanned as expected.

 If scanned by detecting the item type and size automatically, the response may differ. In that case, adjust the cropping frame (selection box) manually.

Photos, Postcards, Business Cards, and BD/DVD/CD Magazines, Newspapers, and Documents

Single item:

Place the item face-down on the platen, with 0.4 inch (1 cm) or more space between the edges (diagonally striped area) of the platen and the item. Portions placed on the diagonally striped area cannot be scanned.

 Large items (such as A4 size photos) that cannot be placed away from the edges/arrow (alignment mark) of the platen may be saved as PDF files. To save in a format other than PDF, scan by specifying the data format.

Multiple items:

Allow 0.4 inch (1 cm) or more space between the edges (diagonally striped area) of the platen and items, and between items. Portions placed on the diagonally striped area cannot be scanned.
