1. Documents
This scanner can scan documents ranging in size from business cards and
checks to LTR/A4 size documents. The size of documents that can be scanned
is shown below.
For Page Separation mode (continuous feed) (See “How to Feed with the
Page Separation Mode,” on p. 23.)
Width: 2.16" to 8.5" (55 mm to 216 mm)
Length: 2.75" to 11.6" (70 mm to 297 mm)
Weight: 14 to 32 lb bond (52 to 128 g/m2)
0.0024" to 0.0059" (0.06 mm to 0.15 mm)

Length: 2.75" to 13.9" (70 mm to 355 mm)
Weight: 11 to 40 lb bond (42 to 157 g/m2)
0.0020" to 0.0079" (0.05 mm to 0.20 mm)
IMPORTANT
A document must meet the following criteria to be scannable:
• When scanning a multipage document, pages must be grouped together so
that they have the same size, thickness, and weight. Scanning different types
of paper at one time can cause the scanner to jam.
• Always make sure that the ink on a document is dry before scanning it.
Scanning documents with the ink still wet may soil the rollers or scanning
glass, cause lines or smudges to appear on images, or dirty other documents.
• Always clean the rollers or scanning glass after scanning a document written
in pencil. Scanning documents with pencil written on them may soil the
rollers or scanning glass, cause stripes to appear in images, or dirty other
documents.
• 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 brightness
in the scanning conditions 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.

Wrinkled or
creased documents
Extremely thin,
translucent paper
Paper with square
holes
Curled paper
Carbon paper

Using the Scanner
2. Preparing the Trays
Prepare the document feed tray in accordance with the document size and type.
Chapter 2
Setting Up the Document Feed Tray
Pull the document feed tray towards you to open it.
In the case of a short document, open the upper cover.
Using the Scanner
21
Using the Document Guide Adapter
When a document becomes skewed during scanning or when scanning a
document that is folded in half (See p. 27.), install the document guide adapter
on the document guide to keep the document from becoming skewed.
Install the document guide adapter by positioning it as shown in the
illustration. Insert the legs of the document guide adapter as far as they go into
the document guide.
Note
If document skew is not remedied by installing the document guide adapter, set
deskew to on in the ISIS/TWAIN driver settings. (See p. 49.)
Using the Feed Extension Plate
Under the following conditions, install the document guide adapter, set the
document in the scanner, and then pull out the feed extension Plate.
• When the document falls forward
• When the document tends to bend forward because the paper is very thin,
etc.
22
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 originals before placing them
into the feeder. If the leading edge of a document is curled, it may cause a
paper jam.

IMPORTANT
The document sheet capacity is 50 sheets of non-curled sheets. Note, however,
that the capacity is less when document pages are not being fed correctly.
5. Adjust the document guides so they match the width of the document.
Note
Before scanning, 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.
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.
• After you finish scanning, close the document feed tray and the upper cover
to prevent damage to the scanner while it is not being used.

Scanning Folio (Folded Document)
(Front)
Chapter 2
The scanner uses a folio scanning method to scan documents that are bigger
than LTR/A4 size (maximum A3 size). To do folio scanning, fold the
document in half and place it on the scanner. Both sides of the folded
document are scanned and combined into a single image.
(Back)
(Combined Image)
Note
• When doing folio scan, put the feed selection lever up (a in the figure
above) and attach the document guide adapter to keep the document straight.
(See p. 22.)
• To scan a folio document, place it on the scanner with the fold on the right
side (b in the figure above). The image on the front page of the folded
document appears as a composite image on the right half of the page. (c in
the figure above)
• When scanning a document that is folded in half, set scanning side in the
ISIS/TWAIN driver to [Folio]. (“ISIS Driver Settings g,” on p. 50,
“TWAIN Driver Settings g,” on p. 52)
• Combined images can be a maximum of A3 size. To use folio scan to scan
non-standard size documents, set “Page size” to [Auto-detection].
IMPORTANT
• When folding documents, align the left and right edges and crease the
document at the fold. The way the document is folded may cause paper jams
or misaligned images.
• The part of the document at the fold is not scanned. Take care when scanning
documents that have text or photos that go across the fold.
• Use manual feeding for folio scanning. Load the document one page at a
time.
• Align the paper side guides to the width of the document. If the paper side
guides are too wide the document may skew or images may be misaligned.
• Documents that are folded in half cannot be scanned when using the DR2050SP in the Presentation mode.

on p. 52.
• 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.

Chapter 3
Slow Scanning Speed
The following problems might cause the scanning speed to be slow.
Problem
Other applications are running in the background on your
PC.
Solution
Quit all other applications that are running.
Problem
Resident applications, such as anti-virus software, are
draining memory resources.
Solution
Quit all resident applications.
Problem
Temporary files cannot be created in the TEMP folder, as
there is not enough free space on the hard disk.
Solution

the hard disk.
Problem
The USB port you are using does not support Hi-Speed
USB 2.0.
Solution
Scanning speeds are lower if your computer’s standard USB
interface is not compatible with Hi-Speed USB 2.0. (See p. 15.)
Use a computer that is equipped with USB that is compatible with
Hi-Speed USB 2.0 as standard.
Problem
The USB cable does not support Hi-Speed USB 2.0.

Scanning Is Not Performed
Check the following if the scanner does not scan an image even though the
scanning operation is performed:
• Is the scanner correctly connected to the computer?
• Has the scanner driver been installed?
• Has the application software been installed correctly? Has the application
software been set up correctly?
• Is there a problem in the PC system?
IMPORTANT
• If documents are not scanned normally even if the scanner setup is OK, a
probable cause is that the scanner driver or application software is not
running correctly. Re-install the scanner driver or application software.
• When system errors result in the scanner not functioning at all, turn OFF the
scanner and wait at least ten seconds before turning it ON again. If the error
continues to occur, restart the computer.
• When scanning continues, make sure that the last document scanned was
scanned correctly.
Documents Are Not Fed Correctly
The following are possible causes when documents are not fed correctly.
Problem
Static electricity, etc., is causing the pages of the document
to stick together, and they cannot be separated correctly by
the scanner.
Solution
Before you place your document, thoroughly fan the stack of
papers. (See “Placing a Documents,” on p. 23.)
Problem
An attempt was made to scan a size, thickness, or type of
paper that cannot be scanned by the scanner.
Solution
Check the document size, thickness, and paper type. (See
“Documents,” on p. 20.)
Problem
The rollers inside the scanner are dirty or worn.
Solution
Refer to p. 59 and clean the rollers. If the rollers are worn, then
they need to be replaced. Contact your local authorized Canon
dealer or service representative to purchase a roller replacement
kit.
For details on how to clear jammed paper, see “Clearing a Paper Jam,” on
p. 42.
74
Appendices
Paper Is Not Ejected Correctly
When you are performing page-by-page scanning while a multi-page
document is set in the scanner, scanning pauses with the trailing edge of the
scanned sheet being engaged by the eject roller.
Problem
Under these conditions, the scanner enters a standby state
and pauses for the next sheet. It does not indicate a paper
jam.
Solution
To scan the next sheet of the document, manually remove the page
that is engaged by the eject roller, or just start the next scan job.
Chapter 3
For details on how to clear jammed paper, see “Clearing a Paper Jam,” on
p. 42.
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.
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.
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.
Appendices
75
Symptoms The scanned image is too dark (or faint).
Problem
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. 49.)
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 p. 22.)
Symptoms Lines, smudges, or dirt appear on the scanned image.
76
Problem
CauseThe 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. 59.)
Appendices
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. 49.)
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.”
Adjusting the Scanner
To adjust the scanner, set the supplied Adjustment Sheet (Shading Sheet) in the
scanner. Orient the adjusting sheet in the direction indicated by the arrow when
setting it in the scanner. After setting the Adjustment Sheet in the scanner, click
the Windows [Start] button, and then click [Programs] (All Programs in the
case of Windows XP) Æ [Canon Document Scanner], and then [DR-2050C &
2080C Adjustment Tool], or use the [Scanner Adjustment] function of the ISIS/
TWAIN driver. Follow the instructions on the dialog box that appears on the
screen to adjust the scanner. Refer to Help for the ISIS/TWAIN driver for
information about the ISIS/TWAIN driver [Scanner Adjustment].
Adjustment Sheet
(Shading Sheet)
CAUTION
Before performing scanner adjustment, be sure to clean the
scanning glass (see p. 59). Attempting to perform scanner
adjustment while the scanning glass is dirty can cause vertical
lines in the scanned image. Note that performing scanner
adjustment will cause previous adjustment data to be deleted.
Once deleted, adjustment data cannot be recovered.
