2. Documents
The DR-X10C scanner can scan documents ranging in size from business cards and checks to 11" × 17"/A3 size. The size and type
of paper that can be fed depends on the feeding method.
IMPORTANT
Acceptable Documents
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 background color and scanning brightness
from the application program before scanning.
• Note that 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.
The scanner can feed the following document sizes.
Size
Width: 2" to 12.01" (50.8 mm to 305 mm)
Length: 2.76" to 17.01" (70.0 mm to 432 mm)
2.76" to 39.37" (70.0 mm to 1 m) (using the Long
Document Mode)
Hint
When the Long Document Mode is selected, Paper Size
Detection can be used for scanning documents up to 39.37".
(1 m) long. (See “Long Document Mode Setting” on p. 3-5.)
Paper Thickness
Page Separation Feeding: 14 to 32 lb bond (52 g/m2 to

Bypass Feeding: 11 lb to 64 lb bond (42 g/m2 to 255 g/m2)
(0.05 mm to 0.30 mm)
Hint
• Continuous feeding feeds document pages one after another
by the feed and retard rollers after placing a batch of
documents in the Document Feed Tray.
• Manual feeding requires feeding one document at a time while
the [Bypass Mode] key on the control panel is lit and the

6. Using Patchcode Sheets (Option)
When the optional patchcode decoder is installed, the DR-X10C supports Automatic File Separation by detecting patchcode sheets
inserted within a document, and performs batch separation.
• Patchcode sheets must be printed in their original size. The
scanner may not recognize them as patchcode sheets if they
are enlarged or reduced.
About Patchcode Sheets
Patchcode patterns are printed on the patchcode sheets used to
automatically separate files. Patchcode pattern icons are
registered in the following location when the ISIS/TWAIN
driver is installed.
■ Patchcode Pattern Function
There are two types of patchcodes, and their function
changes according to their pattern.
PATCH T
When the scanner recognizes this patchcode printed on a
patchcode sheet, it creates a separate file for the document
that comes after the patchcode sheet. The image of this
sheet can be saved or not, depending on the application’s
settings.
IMPORTANT
• Patchcode sheets can be used only when the application you are
using supports separating files by patchcode patterns.
• Patchcode sheets are data in PDF format. There are four types;
[PATCH II (A4)], [PATCH II (LTR)], [PATCH T (A4)], [PATCH T
(LTR)], organized according to the paper size and pattern.
• Patchcode sheets cannot be used when the MultiStream function
(See “MultiStream Function” on p. 1-8.) is being used by
CapturePerfect 3.0.
PATCH II
When the scanner recognizes this patchcode printed on a
patchcode sheet, it creates a separate file starting from the
patchcode sheet. The image of this sheet is saved,
regardless of the application’s settings.
■ Printing Patchcode Sheets
Open the desired patchcode sheet file with an application
that supports CapturePerfect 3.0 or the PDF file format,
and print the page image only at its original size.
IMPORTANT
• Print (at original size) PATCH T (A4) and PATCH II (A4)
sheets on A4-size paper, or PATCH T (LTR) and PATCH II
(LTR) on LTR paper.

on LTR paper.
• The scanner may not recognize the patchcodes if they are
enlarged or reduced.
Hint
• If [Scan, Continue Scanning] is selected or if the patchcode is
PATCH ll type, the patchcode sheet image is also saved and
scanning continues.
• If [Skip, Continue Scanning] is selected and the PATCH T
pattern is detected, the patchcode sheet image is not saved
and scanning continues.
2. Insert the patchcode sheet in front of the document
that you want to save as a separate file before
placing the documents on the scanner.
■ Creating a Patchcode Sheet
Insert patchcode sheets in front of
the documents you want to save as
separate files.
To copy a patchcode pattern to create a different size
patchcode sheet, make sure to pay attention to the
following precautions:
IMPORTANT
• Adjust the patchcode so that it fits into the effective area for

3. Press the Start Key to start scanning.
IMPORTANT
“Verifying…” is displayed.
• When a double feed is detected, documents already fed
through the feed inlet are transported to the eject outlet, and
operation stops.
• The message that appears when a double feed is detected
depends on the Rapid Recovery System setting specified in
the ISIS/TWAIN driver. See “When the Rapid Recovery
System is Enabled” on p. 3-22 for details.
Hint
If the specified count is exceeded while scanning, or if the
scanned count does not reach the specified count when
scanning is finished, an error is displayed.
The specified count is exceeded while scanning
• Double feed detection in the Count-Only mode is set in the
User Mode, and double feeds are detected ultrasonically.
(See “Double-Feed Control Setting” on p. 4-11.)
Detecting Double Feeds by Document Length
This detection method is effective when scanning
documents with pages of the same size. The length of the
first page scanned serves as a standard for comparing
subsequent pages, and when a page is detected to be
approximately two inches (50 mm) longer or shorter than
the standard, a double feed is detected and document
transport is stopped.
Scanning finishes without reaching the specified count
■ Double-Feed Detection Function
The scanner can detect double feeds. Two detection
methods are used: comparison of document lengths, and
ultrasonic detection of spacing between documents, which
is set in the ISIS/TWAIN driver.
Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection
This detection method is effective when scanning
documents with pages of different sizes. The space
between overlapping pages is detected ultrasonically, and
document transport stops when a double feed is detected.
Ultrasonic Double-Feed
Detection Sensor
4-5
Chapter 4 Other Functions
■ Staple Detection Function
IMPORTANT
When sensors at both sides of the feed inlet detect the bent
corner of a stapled document, an error message appears
and feeding stops.
• Ultrasonic double-feed detection works only when the
document pages overlap by at least two inches (50 mm).
• If documents stick together due to static electricity, Ultrasonic
Double-Feed Detection may not function correctly.
• If the presence of adhesive notes or labels on pages is
detected as a double feed and you do not want to remove
them for scanning, a non-detection zone can be specified in
the ISIS/TWAIN driver settings. (See “Double Feed Detection”
on p. 8-18.)
Double-Feed Retry
When a double feed is detected with Ultrasonic doublefeed detection, this function transports the double fed
pages back to the feeder inlet and tries scanning again. You
can set this function from the User Mode. (See “DoubleFeed Retry Setting” on p. 4-11.)
■ Skew Detection Function
IMPORTANT
If a long document page becomes skewed as it is fed, the
page may press against the edge of the feed inlet or
transport path and be damaged.
When the scanner detects that a skewed page is contacting
the edge of the transport path, an error message is
displayed and transport stops.
• Staple detection detects the bent corner that occurs when one
of the four corners of a document has been stapled.
• Staple detection may not operate properly in the following
cases where bending does not occur in documents.
– The document is stapled at two or more corners.
– The document is size smaller than STMT/A5.
– The position of the left or right document guide has been
changed, and the document has been shifted to the left or
right side. (See “Adjusting the Document Guides” on p. 3-8.)
• Be careful to keep the staple detection window glass clean,
and wipe the glass if dust is present.
IMPORTANT
Hint
• A page that becomes skewed while it is fed is only detected by
the sensors as skewed if it contacts the edge of the transport
path during scanning.
• Note that the ISIS/TWAIN driver has a Deskew function that
can detect a skewed document from the scanned image, and
straighten it.
• Staple detection is controlled in the ISIS/TWAIN driver, and
the detection level can be set in the User Mode. (See “Staple
Detection Level Setting” on p. 4-11.)
• Staple detection for the Count-Only mode can be set in the
User Mode. (See “Staple Detection Setting” on p. 4-11.)

You can specify whether the background behind the
scanned image is black or white.
The background is changed by rotating the platen rollers to
expose either the black or white part of the rollers,
according to the selection specified in the ISIS/TWAIN
driver.
Use Folio Scan to scan very large documents (up to 22" ×
34"/A1 size) by folding each document sheet and scanning
the front and back. The resulting images are then
recombined to reconstruct an image of the entire page.

• Folio scanning requires that you feed each page manually
(The Bypass Mode key is lit).
• Fold each page with a sharp, straight crease. Otherwise, the
paper may jam or the image may be misaligned.
• Seam artifacts may appear in the reconstructed image
because of the crease line or differences in the loading
position of each side.
• The scan image of the front side becomes the left half of the
reconstructed image.
• The maximum document size for Folio Scan is 22" × 34"/A1.
• 22" × 34"/A1 document pages should be folded lengthwise
and scanned with the following settings:
Scanner: Long Document Mode

Chapter 5 Maintenance
■ Cleaning Out Excess Ink (Pre-Imprinter)
Cleaning the Print Heads
When using the pre-imprinter, document pages are
transported while the ink is still wet, so the platen roller
and scanning glass will pick up ink, eventually resulting in
streaks in images or soiled documents.
Therefore, when using the pre-imprinter, regularly wipe
any ink from the rollers and scanning glass with a
moistened and well wrung-out cloth.
If the imprinter print head nozzles are dirty, printing may
become streaked or spotty. To prevent this, periodically
remove the ink cartridge and clean the print head with a soft,
dry cloth or cotton swab.
Ink Nozzles (six)
Locations of
Excess Ink
CAUTION
Do not touch the metal contacts on the ink cartridge. Doing so may
cause poor connections, resulting in poor print quality.
IMPORTANT
If excess ink is not removed, streaks will appear in images, and
documents will be soiled. Clean up excess ink carefully and
regularly.
• When scanning many documents daily, clean after
approximately every 10,000 pages.
• In any case, we recommend cleaning at least once at the end
of each day.

If this does not solve the problem, consider the following
possible causes:
Cause
Solution
Cause
Solution
It the scanner does not operate because of a system error, turn
the scanner OFF and wait at least 10 seconds before turning it
back ON. If errors continue to occur, reboot the scanner and
computer.
The scanner’s SCSI ID is identical to the
SCSI ID of another device.
Check the SCSI IDs of all SCSI devices
connected to the system and set a unique SCSI
ID for the scanner.
The terminator is not set correctly.
When another SCSI device is connected
between the scanner and the PC, that device’s
terminator must be disabled (set to OFF).
Cause
There is a problem with another SCSI
device that is connected in the daisy
chain.
Do not use the daisy chain connection
configuration.
Solution
IMPORTANT
The SCSI card is not compatible with the
scanner.
Use a recommended SCSI card. (See p. 2-3.)
Cause
Solution
The ISIS/TWAIN driver and Job
Registration Tool are not installed
correctly
Uninstall and then reinstall the ISIS/TWAIN
driver and Job Registration Tool.
■ Slow Scanning Speed
If the scanning speed is slow, first confirm the following:
Scanning may be slow if the USB interface does not
support Hi-Speed USB 2.0.
✔ Does the PC’s USB interface support only Full-Speed
USB 1.1?
✔ Is the USB cable you are using the one that was
supplied with the scanner (Hi-Speed USB 2.0
compliant)?
✔ Is a USB 1.1-compliant device connected to the USB
hub at the same time?
If this does not solve the problem, consider the following
possible causes:
Cause
Solution
6-6
Other applications are running in the
background on your PC.
Quit all other applications that are running.
Chapter 6 Practical Examples
Cause
Solution
Cause
Solution
■ Saved Image Files Do Not Open
Resident applications, such as anti-virus
software, are draining memory resources.
Quit all resident applications.
If image files saved by CapturePerfect 3.0 cannot be
opened by another application, first confirm the following:
✔ Does the application you are using support
CapturePerfect 3.0 image file types (*.bmp, *.tif, *.jpg
and *.pdf)?
Temporary files cannot be created in the
TEMP folder, as there is not enough free
space on the hard disk.
Delete unnecessary files on the hard disk to
increase free space.
If this does not solve the problem, consider the following
possible causes:
Cause
■ Documents Do Not Feed Properly
Solution
If a document does not feed properly, first confirm the
following:
✔ Are pages sticking together because of static electricity
or another cause?
✔ Are you attempting to scan a document with size, paper
thickness or quality that is not supported by the
scanner? (See “Documents” on p. 3-4.)
✔ Are the feed rollers dirty?
✔ Are the feed rollers worn out?
Cause
Solution
The application does not support multipage TIFF files.
Open the files using an application that
supports multi-page TIFF files, or save the
images as single-page TIFF files using
CapturePerfect 3.0.
The compression format used by
CapturePerfect 3.0 is not supported.
Open the image file with CapturePerfect 3.0,
set the compression format to [None], and save
it again.
IMPORTANT
■ Scanning Results Are Not as Expected
• Double feeding occurs when document pages stick together,
and incompatible paper thickness or quality can cause paper
jams. Check your documents carefully before loading.
• Replacement rollers can be purchased as consumables. If
performance is not improved after cleaning the rollers, contact
your local Canon dealer or service representative to purchase
a Roller Replacement Kit, and replace the rollers (pickup, feed
and retard rollers). (See “Replacing the Transport Rollers” on
p. 5-12.)
If the scanned images do not appear as expected, one or
more ISIS/TWAIN driver settings may be incorrect, or
your application may not support certain scanner
functions.
Problem
Cause
If this does not solve the problem, consider the following
possible problems and causes:
Solution
Problem Documents do not feed.
Cause
The Continuous Manual Feed Mode is
enabled.
Solution Set the Continuous Manual Feed Mode to
[OFF] from the User Mode. (See “Continuous
Manual Feeding Mode Setting” on p. 3-12.)
6-7
The scanned image is too dark (or faint).
The [Brightness] setting is not set to an
appropriate value.
If the image is too dark, set a higher brightness
setting, or if the image is too faint, set a lower
brightness setting.
Chapter 6 Practical Examples
Problem
Cause
Solution
Cause
Solution
Text or images from the back side of your
document appear in the scanned image.
Brightness may be set too low.
Increase the Brightness setting. Or, enable the
[Prevent Bleed Through/Remove
Background] setting.
The paper is too thin.
Photocopy the document, and scan the copy.
Problem
Cause
Solution
Problem Double-sided scanning is not possible.
Cause
Scanning Side is set to [Simplex].
Solution Set Scanning Side to [Duplex].
If the Scanning Side is set to [Skip Blank
Page], images of blank pages are not saved.
Problem
Cause
Solution
Problem
Cause
A black margin appears around the
scanned document.
A document smaller than the preset paper
size has been scanned. Or, the loaded
document has shifted out of position.
Choose one of the following:
(1) Set [Page size] to [Auto-detection].
(2) Select the [White] background.
(3) Enable Border Removal if you want to use
the [Black] background setting.
Solution
Problem
Problem The scanned image is skewed.
Cause
The document has been fed at an angle.
(skew)
Solution Slide the document guides to match the width
of your document.
Cause
Solution
6-8
Lines, smudges, or dirt appear on the
scanned image.
The scanning glass or rollers inside the
scanner are dirty.
Clean the scanning glass and rollers. (See
“Regular Maintenance” on p. 5-2.)
If lines still appear on the image even after you
clean the scanning glass and rollers, the
scanning glass inside the scanner may be
scratched. Contact your local authorized
Canon dealer or service representative.
The scanned image is abnormal for
certain documents.
A detection function such as border
removal is enabled when scanning a
document that includes text or photos
extending to the edge of the page (the
scanner cannot accurately process the
edges of documents).
When a page has text or photos extending to its
edges, turn the detection functions off or scan
that page individually.
The scanned image is abnormal in some
applications.
A function not supported by the
application was used.
Some applications do not support functions
such as auto-detection of page size, so
scanning with such applications will produce
abnormal scanned images.
If abnormal image appearance seems to be
application-dependent, try scanning with autodetection disabled.
Chapter 6 Practical Examples
3. Uninstalling the Software
Some scanner malfunctions can be resolved by reinstalling the software. Before reinstalling the software, make sure to completely
uninstall any previous installation first.
2. Double click [Add or Remove Programs].
Uninstalling the ISIS/TWAIN Driver
The following procedure uses the ISIS/TWAIN driver as an
example. Follow the same procedure to uninstall the Job
Registration Tool and CapturePerfect 3.0. Make sure to
substitute the name of the software in step 3.
IMPORTANT
As always when uninstalling software, log on using an account with
Administrator privileges.
1. Click the [Start] button, then click [Control Panel].
The Control Panel appears.

Color drop-out
These selections are enabled for scanning modes other
than 24-bit Color, so that you can select a primary color
(red, green, blue) or gray to be ignored (dropped out) or
enhanced.
[Others] Tab Sheet
The settings on the [Others] tab sheet are different for the ISIS
and TWAIN drivers. Also, some settings may be disabled,
depending on the mode settings on the [Basic] tab sheet. For
details, see “Mode-Dependent Function Limitations” on
p. 8-10.
The [Setting] buttons are enabled when [Drop-out color
Custom] or [Custom Color Enhance] is selected, so that
you can specify a color range in the [Color Settings] dialog
box for drop-out or enhancement.
Hint
[Batch Separation] and [Patchcode Orientation] are functions for

• The color range within the shaded (cross-hatched) area is
dropped out or enhanced.
• You can move the shaded area by dragging with the mouse.
• You can change the specified color range by dragging the
edges of the shaded area.
• Because your operating environment affects the colors you
specify on screen, they may not match those actually dropped
out or enhanced: that is, the colors you specify may not match

[Rapid Recovery System] Check Box
If a paper jam causes paper transport to stop while
scanning, scanning stops without sending an error
notification to the application program. After fixing the
cause of the stoppage, you can continue scanning.
8-17
Chapter 8 ISIS/TWAIN Driver Settings
[White]
The background of documents changes to white and the
black areas around scanned images are removed.
[JPEG Transfer] Check Box
When this check box is selected, scanned image data is
always compressed to JPEG format within the scanner for
output to the computer.
IMPORTANT
Hint
When the background color is set to [White], [Border Removal]
and [Punch Hole Removal] on the [Image processing] tab sheet
are disabled.
• Scanned image data is output from the scanner as an
uncompressed or JPEG transfer, depending on instructions
from the ISIS/TWAIN driver or application program.
– With uncompressed transfer, scanned image data is output
without being compressed. Therefore, if the image data is
large, transfer of the data from the scanner to the computer
may take a long time.
– JPEG transfer is useful for color and grayscale images, as
scanned image data is JPEG-compressed within the
scanner before it is output.
This reduces the size of the image data for output, so
transfer time from the scanner to the computer is shortened.
• When JPEG Transfer is selected, image data from the
scanner is always output as JPEG-compressed data.
– When the uncompressed saving format is selected in the
application program, JPEG-compressed image data is
reconverted to uncompressed data before it is transferred to
the application. Image quality deteriorates as a result.
– This check box setting is ignored if the application program
requests a JPEG transfer.
– Application program requests depend on the specifications
of the particular program.
[Black]
The background of documents changes to black and the
areas around scanned images become black.
Hint
You can select [Border Removal] on the [Image processing] tab
sheet to remove the black areas around images.
Double Feed Detection
This function stops document transport when double
feeding of document pages is detected, and enables you to
select the detection method to suit the type of documents
to be scanned. (See “Double-Feed Detection Function” on
p. 4-5.)
[Detect by Length]
This method of double feed detection is useful for batch
scanning of same-size documents. The length of the first
document page fed is measured as a standard, and if a
subsequent document is detected to be 1.97" (50 mm)
longer (or shorter) than the standard, a double feed is
judged to have occurred, and document transport is
stopped.
[Staple Detection] Check Box
Select this check box to stop feeding when the sensor
detects a folded corner on a document, which occurs when
an attempt is made to feed stapled documents. (See “Staple
Detection Function” on p. 4-6.)
[Detect by Ultrasonic]
This method of double feed detection is useful for batch
scanning of different-size documents. When the ultrasonic
sensors employed in three locations detect overlapping
documents and spacing between documents, a double feed
is judged to have occurred, and document transport is
stopped.
Background Color
This rotates the scanner internal background roller to
select the background color (black or white) of a
document. (See “Selectable Background” on p. 4-7.)
Hint
Both detection methods can be used together.
8-18
Chapter 8 ISIS/TWAIN Driver Settings
[Setting] Button
This button is enabled when [Detect by Ultrasonic] is
selected, and displays the [Detect Double Feed Setting]
dialog box.
In the [Detect Double Feed Setting] dialog box, you can
select the sensor position for detection and set a nondetection area so that the area where a stamp or label is
affixed to the document page is not detected as a double
feed.
[Manual Feeding] (Bypass Mode)
This is linked to the [Bypass Mode] key on the control
panel. When [Manual Feeding] is selected, the [Bypass
Mode] key is lit and the document holder is raised up.
Start scanning with an application program and feed
documents manually one at a time. The scanner detects a
document and then scans it. Press the stop button to stop
scanning.
Hint
If you press the [Bypass Mode] key on the control panel, the
feeding option changes to [Manual Feeding].
[Panel-Feeding]
Start scanning with an application program, load a
document, and then press the start button to start the scan
operation.
The scanner enters a waiting state when the document has
been scanned, and then continues scanning when you load
the next document and press the start button. When all of
the documents have been scanned, press the stop button to
stop scanning.
IMPORTANT
• The area within 1.97" (50 mm) from a document edge cannot
be set as the non-detection area.
• If the documents overlap by less than 1.97" (50 mm), or if the
documents cling (such as from static electricity), ultrasonic
detection of double feeds may not word correctly.
Hint
When using the panel feeding mode to scan documents with
different-size pages, you can adjust the document guide
position after loading a document.
