Document Feeding and Scanning
This chapter describes precautions regarding documents that can be
handled on this scanner and scanning operations.
Documents
This section describes the types of documents that can be used and
how to place them.
CAUTION
Treat the documents carefully. The paper edges may cut your
fingers.
Document
The CR-190i can feed a wide variety of document sizes. The ranges of
height and length for a document are:
Height : 2.7" to 4.3" (68 to 108 mm)
Length : 4.7" to 9.6" (120 to 245 mm)
Thickness : 0.003" to 0.008" (0.08 to 0.20 mm)
Weight : 17 to 40 lb bond (64 to 157 g/m2)
Length
Follow these guidelines when you prepare a document for scanning:
• Before scanning documents that contain pasted artwork, make sure
that the ink or paste is thoroughly dry. If the documents are scanned
with wet ink or paste, the inside of the scanner may become dirty and
it may cause a malfunction.
• If you scan a document written in pencil, the letters may not be
scanned properly or the pencil may rub off onto the rollers and stain
subsequent documents. Before you scan this kind of document,
make a copy, and then scan the copy. After scanning a document
written in pencil or some other soft writing material, be sure to clean
the scanning rollers. (See “Cleaning the Scanning Glass and
Rollers,” on p. 45.)
• If you scan thin paper in the Duplex mode, the ink printed on the back
side may be scanned. If this happens, adjust the scanning density.
• Scanning documents with a rough surface may not feed easily, and
may cause friction between the documents, resulting in a feeding
error. If this happens, feed the documents one by one.
• To avoid paper jams, damage to documents, and a scanner
malfunction, do not feed the following types of paper into the
scanner. If you want to scan these types of paper, first make a copy,
and then scan the copy.
Height
31
Envelope
Wrinkled or creased
paper
Carbon backed
paper
Curled paper
Coated paper or fax
recording paper
Torn paper
Extremely thin paper
Paper with clips or
staples
Paper with binding
holes
NOTE
• Note that mixing documents of different thickness may cause a
malfunction during feeding.
• Curled, wrinkled, or folded documents may cause an error. If this happens,
straighten out the curls, or reduce the number of documents loaded.
32
You can also scan the envelope. When using separation OFF mode,
you can scan an envelope with thickness up to 0.02" (0.5 mm) or weight
up to 111 lb bond (413 g/m2).
NOTE
• Disable the double feed detection function. (See “Using Ultrasonic Double
Feed Detection,” on p. 33.)
• If the envelope is not the first document in the batch, it may cause a
feeding error or a paper jam.
• Some type of envelope may cause a feeding error or a paper jam.
Using Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection
The double feed detection function that the scanner is equipped with
uses the penetration of ultrasonic waves to detect when two or more
documents are fed at the same time.
If false detections happen too often, disable the double feed detection
function.
NOTE
When Using the Accompanying Scanning Utility for CR-190i:
You can disable the double feed detection function to push the Function
Button. When the function is disabled, the light of the Function Button is
off.
33

Cleaning with the Cleaning Cards
(U.S.A. Only)
If a black stripe appears on the back-side of scanned images or if dirt
appears on the paper documents upon scanning or for preventative
measures, we recommend that you clean your Canon CR-Series
