Important Safety Instructions
● 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: 59 to 90.5°F (15 to 32.5°C)
Humidity: 25 to 80% (RH)
● Avoid installing the scanner near equipment that generates a
magnetic field (e.g., speakers, televisions, or radios).
To ensure the safe operation of this scanner, make 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.
Moving the Scanner
● When moving the scanner, make sure to carry it with both hands so
as not to drop it. The scanner weighs approximately 2.2 lb (1.0 kg).
● Make sure to disconnect any USB cables and AC adapters (not
supplied) when moving the scanner. If the scanner is carried with
these items connected, the plugs and connectors may be damaged
or cause the scanner to fall and result in personal injury or damage
to the scanner.

● When using an AC adapter (not supplied) to power the unit, make
sure to read the operating manual for the AC adapter.
● Use only recommended AC adapters. In addition, do not use these
AC adapters with devices other than the scanner.
● Using the AC adapter, you can obtain better scanning speed than
when using the USB cable by itself.
● If you have any questions regarding the power supply, contact your
local authorized Canon dealer or service representative for further
information.
● Provide adequate space in front of the scanner, as scanned
documents are ejected from the front.
● Avoid installing the scanner in direct sunlight. If this is unavoidable,
use curtains to shade the scanner.
● Avoid locations with excessive dust. Dust can have negative effects
on the inner parts of the scanner.
● 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 unstable or subject to vibration.
Handling
WARNING
● Never place alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or other flammable
substances near the scanner.
9
● Do not cut, damage, or modify the USB cable or power supply USB
cable. Do not place heavy objects on the cable, and do not pull or
excessively bend the cable.
● Never connect the USB cable or power supply USB cable when
your hands are wet.
● Do not knot or coil the USB cable or power supply USB cable, as
this may result in a fire or electric shock. When connecting the
cable, make sure that the power plug is securely and completely
inserted into the power connector.
● Use only the USB cable or power supply USB cable supplied with
the scanner.
● Do not attempt to dismantle the scanner or modify it in any way, as
this is dangerous and may result in a fire or electric shock.
● Do not use flammable aerosol spray products near the scanner.
● When cleaning the scanner, turn the scanner OFF and disconnect
the USB cable or power supply USB cable.
● Clean the scanner using a slightly dampened cloth that has been
well wrung out. Never use alcohol, benzene, paint thinner, or any
other flammable substance.
● 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 scanner, immediately turn
the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable or power supply
USB cable. 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 close the
feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable or
power supply USB cable. Then, contact your local authorized
Canon dealer or service representative for further information.
● Before moving the scanner, make sure to close the feed tray, turn
the scanner OFF, and disconnect the USB cable or power supply
USB cable.
● Never place small 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. If such objects ever fall inside the scanner,
immediately close the feed tray, turn the scanner OFF, and
disconnect the USB cable or power supply USB cable. Then,
contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service
representative to have the unit serviced.
● Do not locate 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. Such objects may tip or
fall over, resulting in personal injury.
● When disconnecting the USB cable, grasp it firmly by its connector.
Do not pull directly on the USB cable, as this may damage or
expose the cable’s internal wiring, resulting in a fire or electric
shock.
● Leave sufficient space around the USB cable or power supply USB
cable so that it can be disconnected easily. If objects are placed
around the USB cable or power supply USB cable, you will be
unable to disconnect it in an emergency.
● Do not allow water or flammable substances (alcohol, benzene,
paint thinner, etc.) to spill inside the scanner, as this may result in a
fire or electric shock.
● If you will not be using the scanner for an extended period of time,
such as during consecutive holidays, disconnect the USB cable or
power supply USB cable for safety.
● 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 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.
CAUTION
Disposal
● Do not install the scanner on a surface that is unstable, tilted, or
subject to excessive vibrations. Doing so may cause the scanner to
fall, resulting in personal injury or damage to the scanner.
When disposing of the scanner, make sure to follow the local
ordinances and laws or consult with your local authorized Canon
dealer.

Preparation
Features
The scanner has the following features.
CaptureOnTouch
Compact Size
When the bundled CaptureOnTouch software is installed, you can
perform scanning with a variety of scanning methods, ranging from a
normal scan, to a scan that involves a series of steps and which is
performed by registering a job.
The scanner has a compact size of 11" (W) × 1.57" (H) × 3.74" (D)
(280 mm (W) × 40 mm (H) × 95 mm (D)) when the document feed and
eject trays are closed.
Color and Grayscale Support
Bus-Powered
The scanner is capable of scanning a document in 24-bit color or 256level grayscale.
The scanner is capable of scanning at a speed of 12 black-and-white
pages per minute*1 and 10 color pages per minute*2, even in places
without a power supply, when using the bus-powered single USB
cable.
Two-Sided Scanning
The scanner supports one-sided and two-sided scanning. Using the
skip blank pages function enables you to scan without worrying about
whether to scan one side or both sides of a document because
scanned images of blank pages are not saved.
Auto Start Function
The CaptureOnTouch Lite software that comes preinstalled in the
scanner can be started by turning ON the Auto Start switch on the rear
panel. Connecting a computer to the scanner enables scanning even
when the driver is not installed.
Document Size Auto Detection
Auto Power ON/OFF
This feature enables automatic detection of the page size of a
scanned document. The space around the edges of documents can
be omitted during scanning, even for non-standard size documents.
This feature automatically turns the power ON or OFF when the feed
tray is opened or closed.
Deskew
Equipped with Feeder
Even if a document is slanted when fed into the scanner, the scanned
image can be straightened.
Up to 20 pages of a document can be loaded and then fed
continuously, or one at a time.
Text Enhanced Mode
Advanced Text Enhancement II is provided to improve the readability
when scanning documents in which the background is uniform and
both the text and background are light.*4
High-speed Scanning
The combined use of the USB cable with the power supply USB cable,
or an AC adapter (sold separately), enables scanning at a faster rate
(15 black-and-white pages per minute*1 and 10 color pages per
minute*3).
Drop-Out Color
This feature makes it possible to eliminate scanning one specific color
(red, green, or blue) of a document.
11
Prescan
This feature allows you to scan just the first page of a document,
confirm the scanned image and adjust the brightness and contrast,
and then scan the remaining pages of the document.
Scan First
Pressing the Start button on the scanner automatically starts
CaptureOnTouch and scans the document in the feed tray when you
use the Scan First function.
Auto Detection of Document in Feeder
An automatic start function is provided for detecting when a document
is placed in the feeder and then starting scanning automatically.
*1 When an A4/LTR size document (single side) is scanned at 200 dpi
in grayscale
*2 When an A4/LTR size document (single side) is scanned at 200 dpi
in 24-bit color
*3 When an A4/LTR size document (single side) is scanned at 200 dpi
in 24-bit color
*4 This feature may not work effectively for some documents

Connecting the Scanner to a Computer
Use the supplied USB cable to connect the scanner to a computer.
When you connect the scanner, the Auto Start switch on the scanner
needs to be turned ON or OFF depending on how you will use the
scanner.
IMPORTANT
• 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.
Auto Start Switch
There is an Auto Start switch at the rear of the scanner for setting
whether to operate the scanner as a storage device.

Scanner Operation
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.)
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.
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.
Using a USB Hub
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.

Documents
Types of Document You Can Scan
The scanner can scan documents that satisfy the following conditions.
Type of paper: Plain paper
Width: 2.75" to 8.5" (70 mm to 216 mm)
Length: 2" to 14.02" (50.8 mm to 356 mm)
Thickness: 14 to 32 lb bond (52 g/m2 to 128 g/m2) 0.0024" to 0.0059"
(0.06 mm to 0.15 mm)
• Scanning the following documents may cause a paper jam or
malfunction. To scan such a document, use a copy machine to
make a photocopy of the document and then scan the photocopy.
IMPORTANT
• When scanning multiple documents of different sizes at the same
time, load the documents so that they cover the entire span of the
feed rollers.
• When a document exceeds the length of A4/LTR, we recommend
feeding one page at a time.
• Scanning documents before the ink on them is dry will make the
rollers and scanning glass dirty, causing streaks to appear on the
image and other documents to become dirty. Make sure that
documents are dry before scanning.
• Scanning documents that are written in pencil or a similar writing
instrument will make the rollers and scanning glass dirty, causing
streaks to appear on the image and other documents to become
dirty. Always clean the internal parts of the scanner after scanning
such documents.
• When scanning a two-sided document printed on thin paper, the
image on the opposite side of each page may show through. Adjust
the scanning intensity in the application software before scanning
the document.
• We recommend feeding thin paper one page at a time.

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) 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.
(6) If “?”, “!”, or “x” icons appear for the scanner in
Windows Device Manager, delete the scanner in
Device Manager and reinstall the scanner driver.
61
Problem 3
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) CaptureOnTouch Lite does not start automatically in
Windows 2000. Open the [ONTOUCHLITE] drive
under [My Computer] in Windows Explorer, and
double-click
(ONTOUCH.exe). Depending on
settings for your operating system,
CaptureOnTouch Lite may not start automatically in
Windows Vista and Windows XP. Perform the same
procedure as above to start CaptureOnTouch Lite in
this case.
(3) If access to USB devices is blocked by security
software, you may not be able to use
CaptureOnTouch Lite.
Problem 4
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 5
Documents fed askew are causing scanned images
to be slanted.
Solutions
(1) Align the document guides to fit the documents as
closely as possible, and place the documents so
that they feed in straight.
(2) Enable [Deskew] in the settings of the scanner
driver.
(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. 57.)
(4) Perfectly straight scanning may not be possible for
the document due to the structural design of the
scanner.
Problem 6
Two-sided scanning is set in the scanner driver but
both sides are not scanned.
Solutions
Note that if you use a job for which scanning only one
side is set in CaptureOnTouch, only one side will always
be scanned regardless of the settings of the scanner
driver. For example, if you set one-sided scanning on
the [Scanner setting] tab of the [Job Registration] dialog
box of CaptureOnTouch, one side will always only be
scanned with that job. Change the setting of the job or
create a job for scanning both sides.
Problem 7
White lines/streaks appear in the scanned image.
Solutions
Clean the scanning glass (both the top and bottom) and
rollers. When cleaning off dirt with adhesive properties
such as glue and correction fluid, try applying a little
pressure when wiping the places corresponding to
where the lines appear. If the problem is not solved after
cleaning, the inside of the glass may be scratched.
Contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service
representative.
Problem 8
Pages are skipped (missing).
Solutions
If [Scanning Side] of the scanner driver is set to [Skip
Blank Page], pages with few black portions may be
unintentionally deleted (skipped). Select another
scanning mode such as simplex or duplex, or reduce the
ratio for black dots. For the solution for missing pages
caused by double feeding, see the following “Problem 9
Pages become jammed or double fed.”
Problem 9
Pages become jammed or double fed.
Solutions
(1) Scanning cannot be performed properly if the pages
of the document are sticking together because of,
for example, static electricity. Before you load a
document, thoroughly fan the pages.
(2) Reduce the number of pages that you load into the
scanner at one time.
Problem 10 I want to save scanned images in JPEG format, but
they are saved in TIFF format.
Solutions
If a document is scanned when [Mode] is set to [Auto
Color Detection] in the settings of the scanner driver,
documents detected as black and white are
automatically saved in the TIFF format regardless of the
setting. This is because the JPEG format does not
support black and white binary images. If you want to
save all scanned images in JPEG format, set [Mode] to
[Color] or [256-level Gray] and then perform scanning.
Problem 11 The scanned images are saved separately as
multiple documents.
Solutions
62
When output file format is set to TIFF or PDF in
CaptureOnTouch, multiple pages can be saved as one
scanned image. To achieve this, select [File type], and
then click the [Advanced Settings] button and select
[Save all pages as one file] in the dialog box that
appears.
Problem 12 The document was fed but no scanned images were
saved.
Solutions
Software Troubleshooting
If [Scanning Side] of the scanner driver is set to [Skip
blank page], pages with few black portions may be
unintentionally deleted (skipped). Select another
scanning mode such as simplex or duplex, or reduce the
ratio for black dots. For the solution for missing pages
caused by double feeding, see “Problem 9 Pages
become jammed or double fed.”
Scanning takes a long time.
(1) End any other running applications.
(2) Scanning may become slow if there is insufficient system memory
because applications (anti-virus software, etc.) are resident in the
system. Close such resident applications, and then try scanning
again.
(3) When insufficient hard disk space is available, the scanner may
be unable to create the necessary temporary files (files for
temporarily saving scanning data) during scanning. Delete any
unnecessary 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 you are using a commercially available USB cable that is not HiSpeed USB 2.0 compliant, replace it with the supplied USB cable
(Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compliant).
(6) When the scanner and computer are connected via a USB hub
that is not Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compliant, remove the hub and
directly connect the scanner and computer.
Problem 13 Cannot save the scanned images of multiple pages
as one file in JPEG format or BMP format.
Solutions
In JPEG format and BMP format, scanned images of
multiple pages cannot be saved as one file. Save them
in TIFF format (or PDF format).
Problem 14 Cannot use Select Scan Job.
Solutions
If both Scan First and Select Scan Job are assigned to
the Start button, priority is given to Scan First. If you
want to assign Select Scan Job, clear the [Assign
scanner Start button to Scan First] check box in the main
screen.
The saved scanned images cannot be opened in
applications.
Problem 15 The scanner makes unusual noise while feeding
documents.
Solutions
(1) To open scanned images saved as multi-page TIFF files, an
application that supports this format is required.
(2) Even if scanned images are saved as TIFF files that are not multipage, some applications will not be able to open them if the TIFF
files are compressed. This is the case with applications that do not
support the compression format of TIFF files created with
CaptureOnTouch. If files cannot be opened, select None as the
image file compression format before scanning.
The paper quality of some documents can result in
unusual noises, but this does not indicate a malfunction.
63
