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 may make the rollers and scanning glass dirty, which
can lead to smudges on the scanned image and transfer the
dirt to subsequent documents. Always clean the internal parts
of the scanner after scanning such 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. In this case, adjust the scanning intensity in the
application software before scanning the document.

###HOME > Chapter 5 Placing Documents > Placing Documents for
Standard Feeding###
Use the two levers on the scanner to switch the feed and eject
methods based on the type of document you are scanning.
Ordinarily, standard feeding should be used when scanning multiple
documents of a standard size at one time. Standard feeding enables
the multiple documents to be fed while separating each page.
1 Open the document feed tray.
2 Pull out the feed support.
The feed and eject methods and lever positions for each document type
are as follows.

When placing documents into the feed tray, take care not to
cut your hands on the edges of the paper.
Make sure that the document does not exceed the loading limit
marks ( ) on the document guides. Up to 30 pages of ordinary
plain paper (80 g/m2) can be loaded at the same time.
Before you place a document, check to make sure it does not
contain paper clips, staples, or other small metal objects.
These items may cause a fire or electrical shock, 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
gets caught in the scanner, immediately turn OFF the power
switch, and disconnect the power cord from the power outlet
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.
If feeding stops due to a system error or paper jam while the
scanner is scanning, resolve the problem, make sure that the
scanned image of the last page that was successfully fed has
been stored, and then resume scanning the remaining
document pages.
After you finish scanning, close the document feed tray to
prevent damage to the scanner while it is not being used.
Although standard feeding can be used in combination with
the straight path when scanning, multi-page documents will be
ejected in reverse order in such cases.

With the straight path, documents are ejected at the front of the scanner.
Do not place anything that will block output near the document eject
area. Also, install the scanner on a smooth surface to enable documents
to be smoothly ejected.
Folio Scan enables you to scan documents that are larger than LTR/
A4 and therefore do not fit in the feeder. To use the function, fold the
document in half lengthwise and place it into the feeder. The
DR-C225 will scan both sides and combine the scanned images into
a single image.
1 Set the feed selection lever and the eject selection lever.
Set the feed selection lever to the non separation position (upper position). The
feed selection indicator will light orange.
Set the eject selection lever to the straight path position ( ).
2 Fold the document in half.
Align the left and right sides of the document, and crease the document firmly.
If the document is not folded properly, paper jams may occur or distortions may
appear in the combined scanned image.
A portion of the scanned image will be missing at the fold line.

Common Problems and Solutions
Q4
If white lines or streaks appear in scanned images.
###HOME > Chapter 12 Troubleshooting > Common Problems and
Solutions###
A4
Clean both sides of the scanner glass, and the rollers. 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. Contact your local authorized Canon
dealer.
Q5
Pages are missing.
A5
Then the scanner driver’s [Scanning Side] setting is [Skip blank
page], documents with very little black may be unintentionally
skipped. Decrease the [Set the likelihood of skipping blank page]
value (see "When you want to delete the images of the blank
pages in two-sided documents" on p.71), or select another scan
mode setting such as [Simplex] or [Duplex]. If pages are skipped
due to the document double feeding, see "Problem 7 Documents
jam (or double-feed)".

Confirm that the scanner is properly connected to the
computer with a USB cable.
Confirm that the scanner is turned on. See the previous
"Problem 1" if the scanner does not turn on.
The computer’s USB interface may not support the scanner.
The scanner cannot be guaranteed to work with all USB
interfaces.
Confirm that the supplied USB cable is used to connect the
scanner to the computer. The scanner cannot be guaranteed
to work with all available USB cables.
If the scanner is connected to the computer via a USB hub,
try removing the hub and connecting directly to the
computer.
On the DR-C225W, make sure that the Wireless switch on
the back of the scanner is turned off.
Q3
Documents feed askew (scanned images are slanted).
A3

2
3
3
Align the document guides to fit the documents as closely as
possible, and load the documents so that they feed straightly.
Enable [Automatically straightens skewed] (or [Deskew]) in
the scanner driver settings.
If many pages have been scanned since roller cleaning,
clean the rollers. If documents still feed askew, roller
replacement or other maintenance may be needed. See
"Chapter 9 Regular Maintenance" on p.87 for roller
replacement procedures.
106
If the roller has been installed correctly, clean it if necessary.
Proper scanning may not be possible when document pages
stick together due to static electricity. Fan the documents
before you load them.
Set the feed selection lever to the non separation position,
and manually feed the scanner one page at a time.
Q7
Multiple pages of scanned images cannot be saved to a
single file.
A7
Depending on the file format, multiple scanned image pages
cannot be saved as a single file with CaptureOnTouch Lite and
CaptureOnTouch.
• BMP, PNG, JPEG: Always save one page per file.
• PPTX: Always saved multiple pages per file.
• TIFF, PDF: You can save multiple pages to a single file by
clicking and selecting in the displayed dialog box.
For the setting method, see "About file formats" on p.55.
Q8
All of the placed documents have been scanned, but the
scanned image does not appear on the application.
A8
When [Panel-Feeding] or [Automatic Feeding] is selected as the
feeding method on the scanner driver’s setting screen, a
scanning operation will not continue after all of the documents
are fed, as the scanner awaits additional documents to be fed.
You can finish the operation and send the scanned images to the
application by clicking the [STOP] button on the Scan Panel.
Q9
Memory becomes insufficient and scanning stops.
A9
If you configure scanning conditions that use a large amount of
the computer's memory, scanning may stop because of
insufficient memory. Although this depends on the computer's
memory size, the possibility of insufficient memory increases if
any of the following scanning conditions overlap.
• [Color Mode] is set to [24-bit Color]
• A large page size (e.g. Legal) is specified as the [Page Size].
Alternatively, the page size is set to [Scanner's Maximum].
• A high resolution (600dpi etc.) is specified for [Dots per inch].
If an error message appears due to insufficient memory while
scanning is in progress, exit the application, change the scanning
conditions (e.g. reduce the resolution or page size) and then try
scanning again. In addition, the amount of memory used can be
contained by turning off [Moire Reduction] and [Please change
prevent bleed through and remove] if they are set to on.
107
Q10
Scanned images are upside down.
A10
Confirm the scanner driver settings.
In Windows, confirm that the [Upside-down feeding] check box in
the [Feeding] tab is cleared.
In OS X, confirm that the [Upside-down feeding] check box in the
[More] dialog box is cleared.
