1. Important Safety Instructions
To ensure the safe operation of this scanner, be sure to read the safety warnings
and precautions described below.
Installation Location
The performance of this scanner is affected by the environment in which it is
installed. Make sure that the location where the scanner is installed meets the
following environmental requirements.
• Provide adequate space around the scanner for operation and maintenance.
• If scanned documents are ejected to the back of the scanner, provide
adequate space behind the scanner for documents ejected after being
scanned. (See p. 22.)
• Avoid installing the machine in direct sunlight. If this is unavoidable, use
curtains to shade the scanner.
• Avoid locations where a considerable amount of dust accumulates.
• Avoid warm or humid locations, such as in the vicinity of a water faucet,
water heater, or humidifier, and avoid locations where the fumes from
ammonia, paint thinner, or other volatile chemicals may be present.
• Avoid locations where ammonia gas is emitted.
• Avoid locations near volatile or flammable materials, such as alcohol or
paint thinner.
• Avoid locations that are subject to vibration.
• Avoid exposing the scanner to rapid changes in temperature. If the room in
which the scanner is installed is cold but rapidly heated, water droplets
(condensation) may form inside the scanner. This may result in a noticeable
degradation in scanning quality.
The following conditions are recommended for optimal scanning quality:
Room temperature: 10 °C to 32.5 °C (50 °F to 90.5 °F)
Humidity:
20% to 80% RH
• Avoid installing the scanner near equipment that generates a magnetic field
(e.g. speakers, televisions, or radios).

the scanner is connected. Also, when using an extension cord, make sure that
the extension cord is rated for the current requirements of the scanner.
• Never try to disassemble the AC adapter or modify it in any way, as this is
extremely dangerous.
• The power cord and AC adapter may become damaged if they are often
stepped on or if heavy objects are placed on them. Continued use of a
damaged power cord and AC adapter can lead to an accident, such as a fire
or electrical shock.
• Do not use the power cord while it is coiled.
• Do not pull directly on the power cord. When disconnecting the power cord,
grasp the plug and remove it from the outlet.
• Keep the area around the power plug clear of objects so that the power cord

Chapter 2
• When using the U-Turn path to scan a document that is longer than 11.7"
(297 mm), use the bypass mode and feed pages one at a time. Attempting to
use the U-Turn path for continuous feed scanning of a document that is
longer than 11.7" (297 mm) can cause the document pages to fall onto the
feed tray and become jammed in the scanner.
• Scanning documents before the ink is dry can cause problems with the
scanner. Always make sure that the ink on a document is dry before scanning
it.
• Scanning documents that are written in pencil or similar material can make
the rollers dirty, which can then transfer the dirt to subsequent documents.
Always clean the rollers after scanning a document written in pencil.
• When scanning a two-sided document that is printed on thin paper, the image
on the opposite side of each page may show through. Adjust the scanning
intensity in the application software before scanning the document.
• Scanning the following types of documents can cause a paper jam or
malfunction. To scan such a document, make a photocopy of the document
and then scan the photocopy.
2. Preparing the Trays
Prepare the document feed tray and document eject tray according to the paper
size and feed/eject method.
Setting Up the Document Feed Tray
Pull the document feed tray towards you to open it.
Setting the Document Guide Adapters

fall from the tray and become jammed in the scanner.
Using the Scanner
23
Using the Straight Path
1. Raise the eject selection lever.
Scanned documents will be ejected to the back of the scanner.
Eject Selection Lever
Note
When using the straight path, the ejected documents are stacked in reverse
order to how they were fed.
IMPORTANT
• Be sure there is enough space for documents that are ejected behind the
scanner when using the straight path. If there is not enough space for ejected
documents, the documents may be damaged or a paper jam may occur.
• Switch the position of the eject selection lever before you start scanning.
Changing the lever position while scanning is being performed can cause
jamming.
24
Using the Scanner
There are two methods for paper separation, called the page separation mode
and bypass mode for feeding documents. Feeding documents continuously
from a stack of documents placed in the feed tray is called the page separation
mode. Feeding documents one sheet at a time by hand or feeding multiple
sheet documents, such as invoices that are attached at one end, is called the
bypass mode. The document feed method can be switched by moving the feed
selection lever.
IMPORTANT
• Before you place a document, check to make sure it does not contain paper
clips, staples, or other small metal objects. These objects may damage the
document, or cause a paper jam or scanner malfunction.
• 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 cord to stop scanning.
• Always smooth out any folds or curls in your documents before placing
them into the feeder. If the leading edge of a document is curled, it may
cause a paper jam.
How to Feed with the Page Separation Mode
1. Move the feed selection lever to the page separation (
) side.

IMPORTANT
There is a load limit mark (
) on the document guides. Do not stack
documents higher than this mark (approximately 50 sheets of 20 lb bond
(80 g/m2) paper). Doing so may cause a paper jam.
5. Adjust the document guides so they match the width of the document.
Note
Before starting a scan, make sure that the document is loaded in the scanner
correctly. Scanning a curled document or a creased document can damage the
document.
6. Start scanning from the application.
Using the Scanner
27
IMPORTANT
• If the paper feed operation stops due to a system error or a paper jam while
the scanner is scanning, resolve the problem, make sure that the scanned
image of the last page that was fed has been stored, and then resume the
scanning operation.
• Note that documents that are printed on thin paper may fall out of the
document eject tray.
• After you finish scanning, close the document feed tray and the document
eject tray extension to prevent damage to the scanner while it is not being
used.
How to Feed with the Bypass Mode
1. Move the feed selection lever to the nonseparated document (
) side.

2. Place the document into the document feed tray one sheet at a time, so that it
touches the stoppers, and adjust the position of the document guides.
3. Start scanning from the application.
28
Using the Scanner
4. The document is pushed against the document feed slot and is fed into the
Chapter 2
scanner.
IMPORTANT
• When scanning documents that are fastened together, such as invoices, set
the edge that is fastened together as the leading edge.
• Note that when scanning with nonseparated feed, if you place several
documents that are not fastened together on the feed tray at one time, they
will be fed together.
• In particular, very thin or curled documents will not be fed very well. In this
case, lightly press on the leading edge of the documents as you feed them.
• After you finish scanning, close the document feed tray and the document
eject tray extension to prevent damage to the scanner while it is not being
used.

when doing folio scan. (See p. 21.)
• Use nonseparated document scanning when doing folio scan.
• Firmly set the fold in the document. The fold in the document may cause
paper jams or misaligned images.
Note
• Folio scanning is set in the ISIS/TWAIN driver.
• The image on the front of the folded document appears as the left side of the
image.
• Combined images can be a maximum of A3 size.
• A seam may appear where the images are combined if the document or the

Chapter 2
Scanning Folio (Folded Document) ..................................P. 49
Double Feed Detection Function
The scanner is equipped with a [Double Feed Detection] function that
automatically detects when two or more documents are fed at the same time
(double feed) while doing continuous scanning.
There are two methods for multiple feed detection as shown below, the
detection method is selected by the “ISIS/TWAIN driver”.
Detecting Double Feed by Document Length
This detection method is effective when scanning a document on pages that
are all the same size. The length of the first page scanned is used as a
standard against which the rest of the pages are compared. If any page is
1.96" (50mm) longer or shorter than the first page it is considered a multiple
feed and scanning stops.
Detecting Double Feed with Ultrasonic Waves
This detection method is effective when scanning a document on pages that
are different sizes. Ultrasonic waves are used to detect pages that are fed at
the same time as well as the space between pages. Scanning stops if they are
detected.
Note
• Ultrasonic double feed detection works when the documents overlap by
1.96" (50 mm) or more.
• If the documents are stuck together with static electricity, the ultrasonic
double feed detection will not correctly detect them as a double feed.
Long Document Mode
Normally the scanner can scan documents up to 13.97" (355 mm) in length,
however if you change the settings to the Long Document mode it is possible
to scan documents up to a maximum of 39.2" (1,000 mm) in length. To use the
Long Document mode, change the scanner’s settings to the Long Document
mode in scanner properties. Set the paper size in the “ISIS/TWAIN driver” to
[Automatic Detection] to allow the scanner to detect documents up to 39.2"
(1,000 mm) long and to scan them.
IMPORTANT
Note the following points when using the Long Document mode.
• Documents may be scanned more slowly when the scanner is scanning with
automatic size detection in Long Document mode.
• When scanning in the Long Document mode, if the document is placed on
the scanner in a skewed position, it may rub against both sides of the feed
path and be damaged. Be careful to place the document so it is not skewed.

7. Scanning Hints
Scanning Double-sided Documents
• I want to scan a double-sided document.
Set Scanning Side to [Duplex].
See “ISIS Driver Settings g,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings g,”
on p. 64.
Scanning Non-standard Size Documents
• I want to scan non-standard size documents
When a non-standard size document is scanned with a standard size
specified, a black margin around the scanned image. If you want to scan
nonstandard size documents, set “Page Size” to [Auto-detection]. The size of
the document is automatically detected.
See “ISIS Driver Settings c,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings c,”
on p. 64.
• I want to scan documents on extra-long paper.
Set the scanner to Long Document mode and set the “Page Size” to [Autodetection]. Documents on paper up to 1,000 mm long can be scanned.
See “Long Document Mode,” on p. 50.
See “ISIS Driver Settings c,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings c,”
on p. 64.
• I want to register non-standard size documents
A non-standard document size can be registered as a Custom Paper Size.
See “ISIS Driver Settings l,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings l,”
on p. 64.
• I want to scan only part of a document
The scan area can be specified before scanning. Note, however, that the scan
area cannot be specified when “Page Size” is set to [Auto-detection].
See “ISIS Driver Settings m,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings m,”
on p. 64.

Chapter 2
This section describes helpful hints for setting up and using your scanner.
Refer to these hints when you set up the ISIS/TWAIN driver. For more details
on items not described in this section, see “Software Settings,” on p. 61.
Scanning Multiple Documents
• I want to divide a document that cannot be placed all at once into
multiple stacks and scan them as a single file
Set the “Feeding Option” in the Scanner Settings to [Automatic Feeding].
When the scanner detects a document, scanning starts automatically, and you
can continue scanning batches until your job is complete.
When “Feeding Option” is set to [Panel-Feeding], scanning does not start
until you place your document and press Scan button. This is handy when
you need to align the edges of the document after it has been placed.
See “ISIS Driver Settings h,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings h,”
on p. 64.
• I want to divide up scanned images by individual document
stacks to save as separate files
Set the “Feeding Option” to [Automatic Feeding] or [Panel-Feeding], and set
“Batch Separation” to [Auto]. (ISIS driver only)
See “ISIS Driver Settings h,” on p. 62, and “ISIS Driver Settings i,” on
p. 62.
• I want to scan a document one sheet at a time
Set the “Feeding Option” to [Automatic Feeding] or [Panel-Feeding] to scan
one sheet at a time. Scanning is interrupted after one page of the document is
scanned.
If the “Feeding Option” is set to [Automatic Feeding] and the next document
is loaded, the scanner starts scanning when it detects the next document.
If the “Feeding Option” is set to [Panel-Feeding] and the next document is
loaded, the scanner starts scanning when the Scan button is pressed.
See “ISIS Driver Settings h,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings h,”
on p. 64.
• I want scanning to stop if two or more pages of the document are
fed together.
Enable the double feed detection function. The scanner stops feeding the
document if it detects that two pages of the document have been fed at the
same time.
See “ISIS Driver Settings o,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings n,”
on p. 64.
56
Using the Scanner
• I want to skip blank sheets contained in a document stack.
Set “Scanning Side” to [Skip blank page]. [Double-sided scanning] is not
performed, and blank pages are skipped.
See “ISIS Driver Settings g,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings g,”
on p. 64.
• Blank sheets are not skipped even if [Skip blank page] is set.
Set a higher [Ratio of black pixels] value (adjust the slider towards the right).
If a low [Ratio of black pixels] value is set, blank sheets are sometimes not
skipped due to the background color or dirt on the document.
• Documents full of text are skipped as blank sheets.
Set a lower [Ratio of black pixels] value (adjust the slider towards the left).
If a high [Ratio of black pixels] value is set, even documents full of text are
sometimes skipped as blank sheets.
When a blank sheet is not skipped, adjust the slider to the right.
When a text document is skipped, adjust the slider to the right.

57
Chapter 2
Scanning Documents Containing Blank Sheets
Adjusting Scanned Image
• I want to clearly scan dark background images
Set “Mode” to [Advanced Text Enhancement]. The background of the
document is removed to enhance the text.
See “ISIS Driver Settings b,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings b,”
on p. 64.
• I want to scan the document with its black and white areas
reversed
Set the Scanning Modes to [Black and white], [Error diffusion], or
[Advanced Text Enhancement] and check the [Reverse Image] checkbox.
Black and white areas are reversed in the scanned images. (TWAIN Driver
only)
See “TWAIN Driver Settings b,” on p. 64, and “TWAIN Driver Settings
p,” on p. 64.
• I want to rotate the scanned image
Specify the amount of rotation (0°, 90°, 180°, 270°) in [Document
Orientation]. The image is rotated as noted below depending on how the
document is placed.

• I want to rotate the image to coincide with the text on the
document
Check the [Text Orientation Recognition] checkbox. The scanner detects the
orientation of the text in the document and rotates the scanned image 90° at a
time.
See “ISIS Driver Settings q,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings q,”
on p. 64.
Prescan Function
• I want to preview the image before I scan it
Check the [Prescan] checkbox.
When scanning starts, a single page of the document is scanned so you can
check the image in the preview window displayed on the scanning panel.
See “ISIS Driver Settings j,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings i,”
on p. 64.
Registering Settings
• I want to use preset scanning conditions again
Assign a name to the scanning conditions and register them as a user
preference. If you select the name of an already registered user preference,
the conditions you set overwrite the settings of the selected user preference.
See “ISIS Driver Settings a,” on p. 62, and “TWAIN Driver Settings a,”
on p. 64.
Flatbed Scanning (Option)
• I want to scan on the flatbed
Set the “Scanning Side” setting to [Flatbed] or [Auto]. When Scanning Side
is set to [Auto], the document on the [Flatbed] is scanned when there is no
longer a document in the document feed opening.
If the flatbed unit is not connected, [Flatbed] and [Auto] do not appear
in the “Scanning Side” settings.

1. Regular Maintenance
Clean the scanner on a regular basis as described below to maintain peak
scanning quality.
CAUTION
• When cleaning the scanner or inside of the scanner, turn OFF
the power switch and unplug the Power Cord from the outlet.
• Do not use excessive force when removing or attaching the
rollers. Doing so may damage them.
• Never use paint thinner, alcohol, or other organic solvents to
clean the scanner. Such solvents can damage or discolor the
exterior of the scanner. They also create a risk of fire or electrical
shock.
Cleaning the Scanner
To clean the exterior of the scanner, dampen a cloth with water or a mild
detergent, wring the cloth out thoroughly, and then wipe the dirt away. Then
use a dry, soft cloth to wipe away any moisture.
Cleaning the feed path
Dust or paper particles in the document feed opening or inside the scanner can
cause lines in scanned images. Use a blower to periodically clean dust and
paper particles from the document feed opening and the inside of the scanner.
After finishing a large scanning job, you should turn off the scanner and then
clean out any paper particles.
70
Appendices
Cleaning the Sensor Glass, Shading Boards, and
the Rollers
If scanned images have extraneous marks, or if the scanned documents are
dirty, then the sensor glass or rollers inside the scanner may be dirty. Clean
them periodically.

Saved Image Files Do Not Open
When image files saved by CapturePerfect 3.0 cannot be opened by other
applications, the probable causes are as follows.
Symptoms A multi-page TIFF file saved in CapturePerfect 3.0
cannot be opened by other applications.
Problem
The application you are using to open the TIFF file does not
support multi-page TIFF files.
Solution
Open the file with an application that supports multi-page TIFF
files.
Symptoms A TIFF file saved in CapturePerfect 3.0 cannot be
opened by other applications.
90
Problem
If the TIFF file saved in CapturePerfect 3.0 has been
compressed, the application you are using to open the TIFF
file does not support the compression type that was used to
save the file in CapturePerfect 3.0.
Solution
Set the compression type for the image file to [None] and save the
file again in CapturePerfect 3.0.
Appendices
Scanning Results Are Not as Expected
If there is a problem with the scanning result (e.g., the scanned image is not
clear, or the image is striped or dirty), the probable causes are incorrect ISIS/
TWAIN driver settings or a problem with the scanning unit inside the scanner.
Scanning results can also become skewed if the ISIS/TWAIN driver has not
been installed correctly, or the application in use does not support ISIS/
TWAIN driver functions.
Symptoms The scanned image is too dark (or faint).
The [Brightness] setting is not set to an appropriate value.
Solution
If the image is dark, set a higher [Brightness] setting, or if the
image is faint, set a lower [Brightness] setting.
(See “Software Settings,” on p. 61.)
Chapter 3
Problem
Symptoms Text or images on the rear side of your document
appear in the scanned image.
Problem
The [Brightness] setting is too low, or the paper is too thin.
Solution
Set a higher [Brightness] setting. If the paper is too thin, make a
copy of the documents and then scan the copy.
Symptoms Double-sided scanning is not possible.
Problem
[Scanning Side] is set to [Simplex].
Solution
Set [Scanning Side] to [Double-sided].
Symptoms A black margin appears around the scanned document.
Problem
A document smaller than the preset paper size has been
scanned. Or, the loaded document has shifted out of
position.
Solution
Set [Paper size] to [Auto-detection]. Or, set [Border Removal] to
on.
Symptoms The scanned image is skewed.
Problem
The document has been fed at an angle. (skew)
Solution
Use the document guide adapter to prevent document skew, and
set [Deskew] to on. (See “Software Settings,” on p. 61.)
Appendices
91
Symptoms Lines, smudges, or dirt appear on the scanned image.
Problem
The scanning glass or rollers inside the scanner are dirty.
Solution
Clean the scanning glass and rollers.
If lines still appear on the image even after cleaning the scanning
glass and rollers, the scanning glass inside the scanner may be
scratched. Contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service
representative. (See p. 70.)
Symptoms The scanned image is abnormal for certain documents.
Problem
Functions such as [Auto-detection], [Deskew], or [Border
Removal] were used when scanning documents containing
text or photos up to their edges. (The scanner cannot
accurately process the edges of documents.)
Solution
Turn off functions such as [Auto-detection], [Deskew], or [Border
Removal] when scanning documents containing text or photos up
to their edges. (See “Software Settings,” on p. 61.)
Symptoms The scanned image is abnormal in some applications.
Problem
A function not supported by the application was used.
Solution
Some applications do not support functions such as auto-detection
of the paper size. Scanning documents with an application such as
this will result in an abnormal scanned image. Try scanning with
auto-detection of the paper size set to “off.”
The Flatbed Scanner (Option) Does Not Work
Operational failure of the optional flatbed scanner unit can be caused by any of
the reasons described below. Try the solution according to the problem.
92
Problem
The ISIS/TWAIN scanner is set to something other than
Flatbed.
Solution
Set the ISIS/TWAIN driver to [Flatbed]. Refer to Help for the
ISIS/TWAIN Driver for information about the ISIS/TWAIN
Driver settings.
Problem
The interface connector is not connected.
Solution
Check the connections between the DR-2580C and the flatbed
scanner unit.
Problem
The DR-2580C is not installed correctly.
Solution
Check the document size, thickness, and paper type. Remove the
DR-2580C scanner and then reinstall it correctly.
Appendices
Problem
The hook is not correctly attached to the DR-2580C.
Solution
Remove the DR-2580C scanner and then reinstall it correctly.
