IMPORTANT
• Take care not to disconnect the USB cable while data is being
transferred between the scanner and computer during scanning.
• The USB connector to which the scanner is connected on your
computer must be one capable of supplying 500 mA of power.
• Do not connect the scanner to the computer before installing the
software.
ON
The scanner is recognized as a storage device by
the computer. Starting CaptureOnTouch Lite
preinstalled in the scanner enables you to perform
scanning on a computer without the scanner driver
installed. (However, you cannot store scanned
images or any other data on the scanner.)
OFF
The scanner is recognized as a scanning device by
the computer. You can connect the scanner to a
computer with the scanner driver installed, and
perform scanning using an application, such as the
supplied CaptureOnTouch.
Hint
When connected to a USB port that supports USB 3.0, the scanner
operates on 900 mA bus power and is capable of high-speed
scanning. Using the power supply cable in such cases will not
increase the scanning speed.
Although this scanner supports USB 3.0 bus power, USB data
transfer rates remain at USB 2.0 speeds.

• Turn the Auto Start switch ON or OFF before you connect the
scanner to a computer. If it is turned ON or OFF after the scanner is
connected to a computer, the scanner may not operate properly.
• When you use the scanner with the Auto Start switch turned ON, the
computer needs to be started before you connect the scanner to
the computer. If the scanner is connected to a computer that is not
started and the feed tray of the scanner has been opened to turn
ON the power, the computer may not be able to start.
The scanner cannot be used when it is connected to a computer via a
bus-powered USB hub. A self-powered USB hub can be used, but
operation is not guaranteed.

• It is recommended that documents exceeding 356 mm (14") in size
are fed one sheet at a time.
• 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.
• It is recommended that thin documents are fed one sheet at a time.
IMPORTANT
The documents to be scanned must satisfy certain criteria. Read the
following items carefully.
• When scanning multiple documents of different sizes, place the
documents so that they cover the entire span of the feed rollers by
aligning the centers and leading edges of the documents.

IMPORTANT
Placing Cards
• When loading a multi-page document, place the pages of the
document with their edges slightly askew.
Use the card slot when scanning plastic cards. Use the following
procedure to scan the cards one by one.
1
2
Open the document feed tray. (See p. 30)
Turn the card face up, and insert the card straight into the
card slot.
When the edge of the card touches the slot, the rollers will move
automatically. The roller will stop when it has caught the edge of
the card, allowing you to let go of the card and start scanning from
an application.
• If the document is curved, straighten the document before
loading it.
• The scanned document is ejected from the front. Do not place
any objects in front of the scanner.
The card will be fed when you start scanning with an application
program. After the card has been fed completely, the rollers will
turn in the opposite direction and scanning of the card will start.
The scanned card will be ejected from the front card slot.
• If double-feeding occurs, reduce the number of pages that you
load into the scanner at one time.
• Depending on paper quality, you may hear unusual noises
while scanning some documents, but this does not indicate a
malfunction.
CAUTION
• The card slot is disabled when documents are placed on the feed
tray. When you want to insert a card in the card slot, remove any
documents from the feed tray.
• During scanning, a portion of the card will protrude from the rear
card slot at the rear of the scanner. Keep the area in front of the rear
card slot clear of objects.

Hint
Replacing Consumable Parts
This message only serves as a rough guide for when to replace the
feed roller and separation pad.
They may wear out sooner if, for example, a lot of pages with rough
surfaces are scanned.
The feed rollers and separation pad inside the scanner are
consumable parts and will wear with scanning. If either the feed roller
or the separation pad or both are worn, documents may not feed
correctly and paper jams may occur.
When the total number of pages of documents fed in the scanner
exceeds the following quantity, a message appears when the scanner
is connected to the computer. In such cases, you must replace the
part indicated in the message. For details on the consumable parts,
see p. 113.

Troubleshooting
Common Problems and Solutions
This section provides recommended solutions to common problems.
If you have a problem that is not solved by the following, contact your
local authorized Canon dealer.
Problem 1
The scanner does not turn ON.
Solutions
(1) The scanner remains OFF while the feed tray is
closed. When you open the feed tray, the scanner
turns ON automatically.
(2) If the scanner is connected to the computer via a
USB hub, try removing the hub and connecting
directly to the computer.
Problem 2
The scanner is not recognized.
Solutions
(1) Confirm that the scanner is properly connected to
the computer with a USB cable.
(2) Confirm that the scanner is turned on. See the
previous “Problem 1” if the scanner does not turn
on.
(3) The computer’s USB interface may not support the
scanner. The scanner cannot be guaranteed to
work with all USB interfaces.
(4) 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.
(5) If the scanner is connected to the computer via a
USB hub, try removing the hub and connecting
directly to the computer.
(6) When the Auto Start switch on the scanner is set
to ON, you can only scan with the built-in
application, CaptureOnTouch Lite. In this case,
scanning from applications on the computer is
disabled.
(7) When the scanner is operated with Windows and
if “?”, “!”, or “x” icons appear for the scanner in
Device Manager, delete the scanner in Device
Manager and reinstall the scanner driver.
103
Problem 3
Documents feed askew (scanned images are
slanted).
Solutions
(1) Align the document guides to fit the documents as
closely as possible, and load the documents so
that they feed straightly.
(2) Enable [Automatically straightens skewed images]
(or [Deskew]) in the scanner driver settings.
(3) If many pages have been scanned since the last
roller cleaning, clean the rollers and separation
pad. If documents still feed askew, roller
replacement or other maintenance may be
needed. (See p. 98.)
(4) Confirm that the separation pad is attached
securely.
(5) Perfectly straight scanning may not be possible for
the document due to the structural design of the
scanner.
Problem 4
CaptureOnTouch Lite does not start.
Solutions
(1) If the Auto Start switch on the scanner is set to
OFF, the built-in application, CaptureOnTouch
Lite, does not start. Close the feed tray to turn OFF
the scanner, and set the Auto Start switch to ON.
(2) If access to USB devices is blocked by security
software, you may not be able to use
CaptureOnTouch Lite.
Problem 5
The auto play screen appears when the scanner is
connected, but you cannot scan with
CaptureOnTouch.
Solutions
When the Auto Start switch on the scanner is set to
ON, you can only scan with the built-in application,
CaptureOnTouch Lite. Close the feed tray to turn OFF
the scanner, and set the Auto Start switch to OFF.
Problem 6
Documents are not scanned according to the
settings configured in the scanner driver.
Solutions
When you scan using a job registered with
CaptureOnTouch, the registered job settings have
priority over the scanner driver settings. Edit existing
job settings, or create a new job using the desired
scanning conditions.
Problem 7
If white lines or streaks appear in scanned images.
Solutions
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.
Problem 8
Pages are missing.
Solutions
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 p. 59,
p. 90), or select another scan mode setting such as
[Simplex] or [Duplex]. If pages are skipped due to the
document double feeding, see “Problem 9 Documents
jam (or double-feed)”.
Problem 9
Documents jam (or double-feed).
Solutions
(1) If the feed roller and the separation pad have been
installed correctly, clean them if necessary.
(2) Proper scanning may not be possible when
document pages stick together due to static
electricity. Fan the documents before you load
them.
Problem 10
Multiple pages of scanned images cannot be
saved to a single file.
Depending on the file format, multiple scanned image
pages cannot be saved as a single file with
CaptureOnTouch Lite and CaptureOnTouch.
104
File type
Processing for multiple pages
JPEG, BMP,
PPTX (Windows
only)
Scanned images are always saved one
page per file.
TIFF, PDF
You can save multiple pages to a single
file by clicking
and selecting [Save
all pages as one file] in the displayed
dialog box.
Problem 11
All of the placed documents have been scanned,
but the scanned image does not appear on the
application.
Solutions
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 pressing the [STOP] button on the
operating panel.
Problem 12
Memory becomes insufficient and scanning stops.
Solutions
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 [Prevent Bleed Through/Remove Background] if
they are set to on.
Problem 13
The scanner makes unusual noise while feeding
documents.
Solutions
The paper quality of some documents can result in
unusual noises, but this does not indicate a
malfunction.
105
Software Troubleshooting
This section describes troubleshooting problems and solutions for
operating the supplied software (CaptureOnTouch).
If scanning is too slow
(1) Close other running programs, if any.
(2) Scanning can be slowed down by memory shortage caused by
memory-resident applications such as anti-virus programs. Close
such memory-resident programs if necessary to free up memory
space.
(3) When insufficient hard disk space is available, the scanner may
be unable to create the necessary temporary files for scanned
data. Delete unneeded data on the hard disk to free up more
space.
(4) Scanning is slow if the computer’s USB port is not Hi-Speed USB
2.0 compliant.
(5) If using a common USB cable that is not Hi-Speed USB 2.0
compliant, replace the cable with the supplied compliant cable.
(6) When the scanner is connected to the computer via a USB hub
that is not Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compliant, remove the hub and
connect the scanner directly to the computer.
If scanned image files cannot be opened in an application
(1) Scanned images saved as multi-page TIFF files can be opened
only by programs that support this file format.
(2) Images saved as compressed TIFF files (single- as well as multipage) can only be opened by programs that support the
compressed format. This can occur with programs that are not
compatible with CaptureOnTouch. In this case, select “None” as
the image file compression format before scanning.
106
Useful tips
Here are some useful tips for scanning documents.
What rules apply to scanned image file names?

according to the settings in the [File name settings] dialog box. This
dialog box appears when you click the
button on the [File name] on
the Scan First output settings screen, and on the [Output settings] tab
on the Register new job screen.
Scanned image file names are constructed partly or wholly according
to the following three settings in the dialog box.
Where are scanned images saved? Can the save destination be
changed?
Images are saved to the following locations, according to program
settings.
For example, save locations such as the following can be set in
CaptureOnTouch.
• For Scan First scanning, files are saved in the folder specified on the
Output Settings screen.

depend on the application and scanner driver settings you are using
as follows.
108
One of the following can be
selected:
• [Color or Gray]
• [Color or Binary]
• [Color, Gray or Binary]
Clearing a Paper Jam
When paper jams occur during scanning, use the following procedure
to clear them.
3
WARNING
Remove the jammed document from the feed side or eject
side.
Be careful when removing jammed paper. It is possible to cut your
hand on the edge of a sheet of paper.
1
Remove any documents remaining in the feed tray.
IMPORTANT
2
Carefully pull out the document without using excessive force. If
the jammed paper tears, make sure that you remove any
remaining pieces.
Make sure the document does not get caught in the card guides
as well.
Open the feeder cover.
4
Close the feeder cover.
After you remove the jammed paper, check to see if the last page
was scanned correctly, and then continue scanning.
109
Hint
When a paper jam or other problem occurs while [Rapid recovery
system] is enabled in the scanner driver, the image of the last
document that was scanned properly is saved before scanning is
stopped. Therefore, you can quickly resume scanning after resolving
the cause of the interruption. As the image of the document that was
being fed at the time of the interruption may not be saved in such
cases, be sure to verify the last scanned image before resuming the
operation.
Clearing a Card Jam
If a card is inserted into the slot at an angle, the card may jam during
scanning.
If a card jam occurs, try pulling the card out, or open the feeder cover
to remove the card.
IMPORTANT
When opening the feeder cover to remove a jammed card, open the
cover slowly. Opening the feeder cover too wide will put pressure on
the card and may damage it.
