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, maintenance, and ventilation.
At least
15.75"
(40 cm)
❏ Power
At least
23.62" (60 cm)
● 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 that are subject to vibration.
1-2
● 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).
● Connect only to a power outlet of the rated voltage
and power supply frequency (either 120 V, 60 Hz
or 220-240 V, 50/60 Hz, depending on your
region).
● Do not connect other electrical equipment to the
same power outlet to which 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.
❏ Moving the Scanner
● When moving the scanner, always hold it with both
hands to avoid dropping it. The weight of the
scanner unit is approximately 7.9 lbs (3.6 kg).
● Before moving the scanner, make sure the
document tray is closed and the interface cable
and AC adapter are disconnected. If the scanner is
transported with these items connected, the plugs
and connectors may be damaged due to
excessive force applied to them during movement.
❏ Handling
WARNING
Note the following precautions whenever using the
scanner. Failure to do so may result in a fire or
electric shock.
■ Never use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, aerosol
sprays, or any other highly flammable substance
near the scanner.
■ Do not cut, damage, or modify the power cord or
AC adapter. Do not place heavy objects on the
power cord or AC adapter, and do not pull or
excessively bend the power cord.
■ Never connect the power cord when your hands
are wet.
■ Do not connect the scanner to a multiplug power
strip.
■ Do not knot or coil the power cord, as this may
result in a fire or electric shock. When connecting
the power cord, make sure that the power plug is
securely and completely inserted into the power
outlet.
■ Do not use power cords and AC adapters other
than the power cord and AC adapter provided with
this scanner.
■ Never try to take the scanner apart or modify it in
any way.
■ Never try to take the AC adapter apart or modify it
in any way, as this is dangerous and may lead to a
fire or electric shock.
■ Do not use flammable aerosol sprays near the
scanner.
■ When cleaning the scanner, turn the power OFF
and disconnect the power cord from the power
supply.

with the scanner with any other electrical devices.
Model: MG1-4314
● If you have any questions regarding the power
supply, contact your local authorized Canon dealer
or service representative for further information.
■ If the scanner makes strange noises, or gives off,
smoke, heat, or strange odors, or the scanner
does not function or other abnormalities occur
when you use the machine, immediately turn the
power OFF, and disconnect the power plug from
the power outlet. Then, contact your local
authorized Canon dealer or service representative
for further information.
■ Do not drop the scanner, or subject it to impact or
strong shock. Should the scanner ever become
damaged, immediately turn the power OFF, and
disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
Then, contact your local authorized Canon dealer
or service representative to have the unit serviced.
■ Before moving the scanner, make sure to turn the
power OFF, and disconnect the power plug from
the power outlet.
CAUTION
■ Do not install the scanner on a surface that is
unstable or tilted, or in an area subject to
excessive vibrations, as this may cause the
scanner to fall, resulting in personal injury or
damage to the scanner.
■ Do not block the ventilation openings. Doing so
could cause the scanner to overheat, creating a
risk of fire.
■ Never place small metal objects such as staples,
paper clips, or jewelry on the scanner. These items
may fall into the scanner, and cause a fire or
electric shock. Should such objects ever fall inside
the scanner, immediately turn the power OFF, and
disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
Then, contact your local authorized Canon dealer
or service representative to have the unit serviced.
1-4
■ Do not install the scanner in a humid or dusty
location. Doing so may result in a fire or electric
shock.
■ Do not place objects on top of the scanner, as they
may tip over and fall, resulting in personal injury.
■ Do not use the scanner with a power supply
voltage other than 120/220-240 VAC. Doing so
might cause fire or electric shock.
■ When disconnecting the power cord, grasp it firmly
by its plug. Do not pull directly on the power cord,
as this may damage or expose the cord’s internal
wiring, resulting in a fire or electric shock.
■ Leave sufficient space around the power plug so
that it can be disconnected easily. If objects are
placed around the power plug, you will be unable
to disconnect it in an emergency.
■ Do not allow water or flammable substances
(alcohol, paint thinner, benzene, etc.) to spill into
the scanner, as this may result in a fire or electric
shock.
■ Turn OFF the power for safety when not using the
scanner for a long period of time, such as
overnight. Also, turn OFF the power, and
disconnect the AC adapter from the scanner and
disconnect the power cord from the power outlet
for safety when the machine will not be used for an
extended period of time, such as during
consecutive holidays.
■ 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 the scanner.
■ Be careful when placing paper in the scanner and
when removing jammed paper. It is possible to cut
your hand on the edge of a sheet of paper.

1. Documents
The ScanFront can scan documents in a range of sizes from business cards to Legal/A4.
It is possible to feed documents of the following sizes and thicknesses depending on the feeding method used.
❏ Plain Paper
Size
Width: 2" to 8 1/2" (50.8 mm to 216 mm)
Length: 2 1/8" to 14" (53.9 mm to 355.6 mm)
(up to 39.3" (1,000 mm) in Long Document mode)
Thickness for Page Separation ON
14 lb to 57 lb bond (52 g/m2 to 209 g/m2)
Thickness for Page Separation OFF
11 lb to 57 lb bond (40 g/m2 to 209 g/m2)
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.

5. Fingerprint Sensor (ScanFront 300P)
The ScanFront 300P is equipped with a fingerprint sensor for registering fingerprints and authenticating users.
The fingerprint sensor is a precision component. Be careful when handling this sensor.
❏ Cautions for Handling the Fingerprint
Sensor
● The following actions may damage the fingerprint
sensor or cause it to malfunction. Read this
information carefully to avoid damaging the
sensor.
– Dropping an object on the fingerprint sensor, or
otherwise subjecting it to a strong impact
– Scratching the surface of the fingerprint sensor,
or poking it with a pointed object
– Pressing a hard object such as a fingernail or
metal item against the fingerprint sensor
– Touching the fingerprint sensor with dirty hands
– Placing a sticker on the surface of the fingerprint
sensor, or covering the surface with ink or
another substance
● If fingerprint authentication fails frequently, the
fingerprint sensor may be dirty. Clean the surface
of the fingerprint sensor regularly.
● When cleaning the fingerprint sensor, use a soft
dry cloth to wipe dirt off the surface.
2-11
2
Handling
Fingerprint Sensor
● Do not use a pointed object to remove any dirt that
accumulates around the fingerprint sensor. Doing
so may cause the fingerprint sensor to
malfunction.
● Touching the fingerprint sensor while charged with
static electricity may cause the fingerprint sensor
or scanner unit to malfunction. Before touching the
fingerprint sensor, discharge any static electricity
by touching a piece of metal. Be especially careful
during dry periods, such as the winter season,
when the likelihood of being charged with static
electricity is high.
❏ Fingerprint Authentication

registration and authentication.
1. Align the first joint of a finger on the sensor and
press the finger on the fingerprint sensor.
2. Keep the finger pressed while slowly sliding it
straight at a constant speed to scan the
fingerprint.
● Authentication performance may improve if the
condition of the fingerprint is improved as a result
of washing your hands or applying hand cream.
● Authentication may not be performed properly
depending on the speed with which you slide your
finger over the sensor. In this case, adjust the
speed with which you slide your finger in
accordance with the message that appears.
● Fingerprint authentication does not necessarily
guarantee the authentication and verification of the
identity of a person.
Hint
For details on the procedures for fingerprint registration and
authentication, see Chapter 3 “Operating Procedures”.
● Fingerprint authentication uses the unique
information of fingerprints. The fingerprint
authentication function may not work properly for a
finger with a fingerprint that is worn down or has
few distinguishable features.
● The same finger needs to be scanned three times
to register the fingerprint.
● The authentication performance differs depending
on the condition of the fingerprint when it is
registered and when it is authenticated. The
following conditions may cause an error in
fingerprint authentication:
– The finger is wet or sweaty
– The finger is dirty
– The grooves of the fingerprint are filled with
sweat or oil
– The finger is dry (dry skin)
– Part of the fingerprint is missing because of, for
example, a wound or burn injury
– The fingerprint has worn thin
