Flatbed
Scanning
Limitations
• To use the flatbed, you must install the software included on the
provided setup disc.
• The software that operates the connected Canon DR-series scanner
(ISIS/TWAIN driver) must also be installed.
• If WIA driver is installed, the flatbed can operate as a stand-alone
unit without a Canon DR-series scanner connected. In that case,
however, there are limitations on the functions available comparing
with the usual scanning using the ISIS/TWAIN driver.
• Both the flatbed and the connected Canon DR-series scanner must
be turned ON to scan using the flatbed. If the flatbed is turned ON
but the Canon DR-series scanner is turned OFF, you cannot scan
documents using the flatbed. However, you can scan documents
using the Canon DR-series scanner while it is turned ON, even if the
flatbed is turned OFF.
• When the conditions for scanning require a large amount of the
computer’s memory, scanning may not be possible if the memory is
insufficient. If a memory error appears during scanning, exit the
application and change the scanning conditions before attempting to
scan again.
Feeder
Scanning
Flatbed Scanning
You can use the flatbed to scan documents one sheet at a time, single
page documents, or documents that cannot be scanned using the
feeder.

Other Methods for Scanning
Configuring the Feeding Option
This section describes the various scanning options.
This section describes how to set [Feeding Option] to [PanelFeeding].
Changing the Feeding Option for
Scanning
1
Changing the feeding option setting in the scanner settings dialog box
can be helpful when scanning multipage documents.
The following three feeding options are available:
● [Standard Feeding]
This is the standard feeding method. The scanning operation ends
when the documents placed in either scanner finish scanning.
● [Panel-Feeding]
When the documents placed in either scanner finish scanning, the
scanner enters a standby state and waits for additional documents
to be placed. When you place additional documents and press the
Start button, scanning continues.
● [Automatic Feeding]
When additional documents are placed after a document finishes
feeding, the scanner automatically detects these documents and
continues scanning.
This feeding option can only be selected when [Main Scanner/
Flatbed] is set to [Main Scanner].
Open the scanner settings dialog box from your
application.
When using CapturePerfect, for example, select [Scanner Setting]
from the [Scan] menu. For details on how to open the settings
dialog box from other applications, refer to the operation manual
of the application.
2
Configure the [Main Scanner/Flatbed] setting.
If the document is placed in the feeder of the connected Canon
DR-series scanner, select [Main Scanner]. If you plan to switch
between using the feeder and flatbed for scanning, select [Auto].

Set [Feeding Option] to [Panel-Feeding].
Click [OK] to close the settings screen.
Click [OK] to close the scanner settings dialog box.
Place the document in the scanner, and start the scan
procedure from the application.
Press the start button on the scanner in which the
document is placed.
If the document is placed in the Canon DR-series scanner,
pressing the start button on the scanner will start the scan
procedure.
If the document is placed on the flatbed, pressing the start button
on the flatbed will start the scan procedure.
When the document finishes scanning, the scanner waits for the
next document to be placed.
Click the [Feeding] tab.
10 Place the next document to be scanned.
If you selected [Auto] for [Main Scanner/Flatbed] in step 2, you
can place the document in either the feeder or the flatbed to
continue scanning.
11 Repeat steps 9 and 10 until all documents are scanned.
12 Press the stop button on the scanner when all documents
have been scanned.
This completes the scan procedure.
NOTE
Depending on the application you are using and whether the flatbed
is connected, scanner operations when scanning with the [Feeding
Option] set to [Panel-Feeding] may differ as follows.
22
When scanning with only a
Canon DR-series scanner
When scanning with the
flatbed connected
When you press the stop button
on the scanner, a dialog box
asking whether you want to
continue scanning appears.
You must press the stop button
on the scanner twice to display
the dialog box that asks whether
you want to continue scanning.
When you select the option to
continue scanning in the above
dialog box, the driver settings
screen appears automatically.
Selecting the option to continue
scanning will not automatically
display the driver settings
screen. You must press the start
button on the scanner.
For example, perform the following to scan a multipage application
form and a passport.
(1) Start the scan procedure from the application.
(2) Place the application form in the Canon DR-series scanner, and
press the start button on the DR-series scanner.
(3) When the application form is scanned, place the passport on the
flatbed, and press the start button on the flatbed.
(4) When you are finished scanning, press the stop button on the
flatbed or DR-series scanner.
Using Two Scanners
Setting [Main Scanner/Flatbed] to [Auto] in the scanner settings dialog
box makes it easy to scan certain types of documents with one
scanner or the other, or scan using a combination both scanners.
Example 1: Scan using the appropriate scanner for each
scan operation
By configuring the following settings, you can scan documents suited
for the flatbed (e.g., a single page of a book) or documents suited for
the connected Canon DR-series scanner (e.g., one or more document
sheets), without having to specify the scanner.
[Main Scanner/Flatbed]: [Auto]
[Feeding Option]:
[Standard]
Example 2: Scan different document types to a single
image file
By configuring the following settings, you can scan multiple
documents of different types (e.g., multiple pages of a book and
multiple document sheets) to a single file.
[Main Scanner/Flatbed]: [Auto]
[Feeding Option]:
[Panel-Feeding]

If you have a problem that is not solved by the following, contact your
local authorized Canon dealer.
Problem 1
Solutions
Problem 2
Solutions
Problem 3
Solution
The flatbed will not turn ON.
Confirm that the AC adapter is plugged firmly into a
power outlet.
The flatbed is not recognized.
(1) Confirm that the flatbed is properly connected to the
computer with a USB cable.
(2) Confirm that the scanners (both the flatbed and the
connected Canon DR-series scanner) are turned
ON. If the flatbed is turned ON but the Canon
DR-series scanner is turned OFF, the flatbed will not
operate. See Problem 1 if the scanner does not turn
ON.
(3) The computer’s USB interface may not support the
flatbed. The flatbed cannot be guaranteed to work
with all USB interfaces.
(4) Confirm that the supplied USB cable is used to
connect the flatbed to the computer. The flatbed
cannot be guaranteed to work with all available USB
cables.
(5) If the flatbed is connected to the computer via a USB
hub, try removing the hub and connecting the flatbed
directly to the computer.
Dirt appears in scanned images.
Clean the scanning glass. If a sticky substance such as
glue or correction fluid is found, carefully wipe with just
enough pressure to clean the area where the lines
appear. If the problem cannot be solved by cleaning, the
internal glass may be scratched. In this case, contact
your local authorized Canon dealer.
Problem 5
Solution
Problem 6
Solution
Problem 7
Solution
24
Text is not enhanced in scanned images, even
though [Text Enhanced Mode] is specified.
This flatbed only supports Advanced Text Enhancement
II. When you open the Canon DR-series scanner’s ISIS/
TWAIN driver settings dialog box from the flatbed’s ISIS/
TWAIN driver settings dialog box, you can specify text
enhancement modes other than Advanced Text
Enhancement II. However, Advanced Text
Enhancement II will always be used when scanning
from the flatbed. As a result, the text may not appear
enhanced depending on the document that was
scanned. To scan using the text enhancement mode
that you specified, place the document in the DR-series
scanner and scan.
The scanner is recognized by the computer, but
scanning does not start.
Check the position of the lock switch on the side of the
flatbed (See p. 11). If the lock switch is set to the locked
position, set it to the unlocked position.
Scanning is not performed using the registered user
preference settings.
User preferences in which feeding option, skip blank
page, continuous scanning, or prescan is enabled may
not be recalled properly by some applications. When
using such user preferences, make sure to open the
driver settings dialog box and verify that the settings are
enabled before you begin scanning.
The image rotation setting is enabled, but images
are not rotated (or the edges are cropped).
When the scanning resolution is set to a high value and
image rotation is set to 90 or 270 degrees, the entire
document may not be scanned properly. Set the image
rotation to 0 or 180 degrees and try scanning again.
