INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the fi-5950 Image Scanner.
The fi-5950 is an image scanner designed to scan various documents in large quantities.
The fi-5950 has the following features.
Improvement of color scanning speed (105 sheets or 210 pages
per minute) with high resolution (300dpi)
By the newly-developed high speed CCD and high speed image processing circuit,
scanning speed (A4 color, 300dpi) of 105 sheets/210 pages per minute) is improved.
Now you can scan a large amount of documents which is about 100,000 sheets a day!
Efficient pre-processing and post-processing!
This scanner is able to scan mixed documents stables of papers of different color,
density, size and thickness. This makes the scanning process even simpler and
economic, since you no not have to sort out the documents before scanning any more!
Furthermore, this scanner is equipped with an "Elevator" Stacker, moving
automatically into the appropriate height, according to the amount of loaded
documents. This will make the documents be easily and elegantly handled and also
increases your scanning efficiency!
Prevention of data loss because of improved multi feed detection
This scanner is equipped with ultrasonic multi feed detection sensors, which detect
reliably the feeding of 2 or more documents together into the scanner. Those multi
feed can also be detected surely, when scanning documents of different thickness,
size, color or density. This will help you to increase your efficiency, since the data loss
caused by multi feed is detected immediately. This gives you the opportunity to
correct the scanning without too much troubles and loss of time.
High image processing function
The automatic detection function of this scanner is able to detect if the loaded
documents are color or monochrome and according to the detection the appropriate
settings will be automatically chosen for the image creation. Since the scanner does
this automatically, you do not have to set the image settings each time before
scanning. Furthermore, The Kofax VRS image processing board is installed as
standard equipment for this scanner. This VRS board which has a good reputation for
image processing on a high level, enables you to create images of high quality and
provides advanced functions like the "Automatic direction correction" and
"Background equalization function".
i
Pre- and Post imprinter option can be installed
In today's document business, imprinters provide a vital tool for archiving, controlling
and verification processes. For this scanner, you can select two optional types of
imprinters, depending on your needs. The Pre-Imprinter Option prints information on
the front side of the documents prior to the scanning. When using Pre-imprinter, the
printed information will also be stored on the generated image. The Post-Imprinter on
the other hand, will print after the scanning on the back sides of your documents. So
only the originals, and not the images, will contain the imprint.

Avoid getting a sleeve, necktie, or hair caught up in any scanner mechanism during
scanning since this may cause injuries.
Do not touch the heated section such as the bottom of the scanner for a long time. Doing
so may cause a low-temperature burn on your skin.
When the scanner is not going to be used for a long period of time, be sure to disconnect
the power cable from the AC outlet. Not doing so may cause a fire or electric shock.
xii
Do not use any aerosol sprays or alcohol based sprays to clean the scanner. Dust blown
up by strong air from the spray may enter the inside of the scanner. This may cause the
scanner to fail or malfunction. Sparks, caused by static electricity, generated when
blowing off dust and dirt from the outside of the scanner may cause a fire.
Check the following items once a month:
•The power cable is firmly inserted into the AC outlet.
•The power cable is not emitting abnormal heat, or the power cable is not rusted or bent.
•Dust is not accumulated on the power cable. If so, wipe off any dust with a soft, dry
cloth.
•The power cable does not have any cracks or scratches.
If any abnormality is detected, contact your FUJITSU scanner dealer or an authorized
FUJITSU scanner service provider.
Make sure to ground to avoid electric shock. Be sure to ground before plugging into the
AC outlet. Unplug from the outlet before removing the ground connection.
CAUTION
The following describes important cautions described in this manual.
When installing the scanner on a table, make sure that the table is flat and level. Place
the scanner so that none of its parts extend beyond the edge of the table, otherwise it
may fall or collapse and cause injuries.
Install the scanner away from strong magnetic fields and other sources of electronic
noise. Protect the scanner against any static electricity and choose a static-free place to
install the scanner.
Static electricity can cause the scanner to malfunction.
xiii
If there is an electrical storm, disconnect the power cable from the AC outlet. Lightening
can travel through wires and water pipes and damage the scanner, which may damage
your property.
Do not supply the power from the AC outlet where the devices requiring much power
such as copying machines or paper shredders are connected.
Do not block the ventilation ports. Blocking the ventilation ports generates heat inside of
the scanner, which may result in a fire or scanner failure.
Do not use the scanner immediately after moving it from a cold place into a warm room.
Condensation may occur, which might lead to scanning errors. Let the scanner dry for
one or two hours before you use it.
When handling documents, be careful not to cut your fingers with them.
When carrying the scanner outside while it is raining or snowing, pay special attention so
the scanner does not get wet.
If the scanner gets wet, wipe it or wait until it dries.
When transporting the scanner, never carry it alone. The scanner is heavy.

2.12 Feeding Documents Manually
Besides the “Automatic Feed Mode” which automatically scans the document set on the hopper, the scanner can also scan documents in the “Manual Feed Mode”.
In addition, the “Manual Feed Mode” is divided into 2 types:
<1> Single Feed: Only one sheet is manually fed and scanned. This is
suitable for
• thick paper, envelopes and folded paper and other types of documents that are difficult to
scan using Automatic Feed Mode. (In case of folded paper, make the folding line as the
leading edge).
• reducing the load on the hopper.
• making sure a certain page is scanned.
<2> Continuous Feed: Multiple sheets of document are manually fed
one at a time and continuously scanned. This is suitable for
• manual feed, even if multiple sheets are mistakenly fed, the scanner will scan one at a
time.
• selectively scanning a stack of document.
• making sure certain pages are scanned.
The procedure is described below.

Notes on the use of Adobe Acrobat
• For [Resolution], [Scan Type], and [Image Mode], Adobe Acrobat's settings are given
priority over the scanner driver settings, thus the scanned image may not be displayed
as previously configured in the scanner driver.
• The following functions are not available:
- [256 Color] and [8 Color] modes
- [Rotation Degree] specified when [End of Page Detection] is selected
- Long Page Scanning
- Automatic Page Size Detection
• When you use Adobe Acrobat to scan and convert a document into PDF, the output
image may not turn out as intended:
- When the [Edge shadow removal] option of Acrobat and [Digital Endorser] or [Black
Background] of TWAIN driver are enabled, character strings embedded in the image
or the background may be lost.
Solution 1:
1. In Acrobat, select [File] [Create PDF] [From Scanner] [Custom Scan].
2. In the [Custom Scan] dialog box, click the [Options] button next to the [Small Size/
High Quality] slide bar under [Document].
3. In the [Optimization Options] dialog box, either set [Edge shadow removal] to [Off],
or set [Color/Grayscale] and [Monochrome] under [Compression] to a setting other
than [Adaptive].
Solution 2:
Adjust the scanning density of the TWAIN driver.
3.4 Saving Scanned Images in PDF Format
- When you scan in a resolution lower than Adobe’s recommended resolution with
[Color/Grayscale] and/or [Monochrome] under [Compression] set to [Adaptive] in
Acrobat, the output image may not be satisfactory.
Solution:
Under [Compression], set [Color/Grayscale] and/or [Monochrome] to a setting other
than [Adaptive].
- Since scanning of documents longer than A3 or Double-Letter (11 × 17 in.) size is
not supported in Acrobat, you may not be able to perform scanning successfully
when [Overscan] is enabled in the TWAIN driver.
Solution:
To scan a Double-Letter (11 × 17 in.) or A3 sized document, do not enable [Overscan] in the TWAIN driver.
- For more details on using Acrobat and other information, refer to the Adobe Acrobat
Help ("Create a PDF file from a scanned document") or
http://www.adobe.com/support/acrobat/ from the Adobe website.

The scanner monitors for the overlapping of documents. The scanner detects a
multifeed by differences in ultrasonic propagation. When this method is
slected, two more options are available specified by other sections.
• Multifeed detection areas can be narrowed separately for left/middle/right
Ultrasonic sensors to avoid unintensional multifeed detection of sticked photogragh or something on the document. To specify this, go to Step 4 in Section “8.4 Multifeed Detection” on page 190.
• If photogragh or something is sticked on the document and its size and/or
position are same, you can easily let the scanner memorize its size and/or
position just scanning those document. To use this function, go to Section
“8.10 Intelligent Multifeed Function” on page 202 or Section “3.12 Not
detecting Multifeed for fixed format” on page 95.
The scanner monitors the length of documents. It detects a multifeed by differences in the document length when two or more document sheets are fed overlapping.
The scanner monitors both document overlapping and length to detect
multifeeds.
The scanner will detect multifeeds according the settings configured on the
Software Operator Panel. Refer to “8.4 Multifeed Detection” on page 190.
Furthermore, refer to "7.5 Multifeed Detection Conditions" on page 164 for detailed

DAILY CARE
Pick rollers
*1)During scanning, toner, paper dust, oil from carbonless paper, and glue stick to scanner
rollers. If the rollers are not cleaned regularly, these will become more difficult to remove.
Therefore, it is strongly recommended that the rollers be cleaned after daily use.
ATTENTION
• The scanner must be cleaned more frequently if you scan any of the following types of sheets:
• Documents of coated paper
• Documents that are almost completely covered with printed text
or graphics
• Paper whose back side has carbon.
• Chemically treated documents such as carbonless paper
• Documents containing a large amount of calcium carbonate
• Documents filled in with pencil
• Do not use aerosol sprays to clean the scanner. The air from the spray
may cause dirt and dust to enter the scanner mechanism and resulting
scanner failure or malfunction.
• You must clean the following area more thoroughly when you use fi590PRF or fi-590PRB imprinters. The imprinter ink tends to stick to the
document transport path.
• Removable sheet guide
• Glass sheet guide
• Feed rollers
• Pinch rollers
• You can confirm the number of scanned sheets after the last cleaning
by “5.2 How to check and reset the Consumable/Cleaning Counter” on
page 121.

159
DOCUMENT SPECIFICATIONS
When using documents of a paper type other than the above, perform a test-scanning with a few sheets of
the same type before executing the actual task in order to check whether or not the documents can be
scanned.
■ Precautions
The following documents may not be scanned successfully.
• Document of non-uniform thickness (e.g. envelopes and documents with photographs
attached)
• Wrinkled or curled documents (Refer to HINT on on page 161)
• Folded or torn documents
• Tracing paper
• Coated paper
• Carbon paper
• Carbonless paper
• Photosensitive paper
• Perforated or punched documents
• Documents that are not square or rectangular
• Very thin documents
• Photographs
Do not use the following documents:
• Paper-clipped or stapled documents
• Documents on which the ink is still wet
• Documents smaller than A8 or larger than A3
• Documents other than paper such as fabric, metal foil, or transparencies
HINT
160
• When scanning semi-transparent documents, set the density to light to
avoid a bleed through.
• To prevent the rollers from becoming dirty, avoid scanning documents containing large areas written or filled with pencil. If scanning of such documents is inevitable, clean the rollers more frequently.
• When feeding errors, paper jams and multifeeds occur frequently, refer to
“2.9 Setting the Paper Thickness” on page 29.
7.2 Document Quality
ATTENTION

DOCUMENT SPECIFICATIONS
HINT
• Carbonless paper contains chemical substances that may damage the
Pad or rollers (e.g. Pick roller) when documents are fed. Pay attention to
the following:
Cleaning:
If pick errors occur frequently, clean the Pad and the Pick roller. For
details on cleaning the Pad and the Pick roller, refer to “4 DAILY
CARE” on page 103.
Replacing parts:
The service life of the Pad and Pick roller may be shortened compared to the case of scanning wood containing paper documents.
• If paper containing wood is scanned, the service life of the Pad and Pick
roller may become shorter than that of the Pad and Pick roller used for
scanning only woodfree paper.
• The pad or rollers of the scanner could be damaged if photographs or
sheets of paper attached to the scanned document have contact with
the pad or rollers during scanning.
• Scanning documents of calendered paper such as photographs may
damage the surface of them.
When using the ADF, the leading edge of all document sheets must be
evenly aligned. Make sure that curling at the leading edge is within the following tolerances:
More than 30mm

7.5 Multifeed Detection Conditions
The following describes the conditions required for Multifeed detection:
■ Check overlapping
• Paper weight: 31 - 209 g/m2 (8.3 to 56.1 lb)
• Punched holes are not allowed within 35 mm (1.4 in) of the vertical lines of the center,
right and left sides of the the document as shown in Fig. 1.
• Other paper shall not be glued within 35 mm (1.4 in) of the vertical lines of the center, right
and left sides of the the document as shown in Fig. 1.
■ Check length
(Load only documents of the same length onto the hopper.)
• Document length deviation: 1% or less
• Punched holes are not allowed within 35 mm (1.4 in) of the vertical center line of the
document as shown in Fig. 2.
■ Check overlapping and length
(Load only documents of the same length and thickness onto the hopper.)
• Paper weight: 31 - 157 g/m2 (8.3 to 42 lb)
• Document length deviation: 1% or less
• Punched holes are not allowed within 35 mm (1.4 in) of the vertical lines of the center,
right and left sides of the the document as shown in Fig. 1.
• Other paper shall not be glued within 35 mm (1.4 in) of the vertical lines of the center, right

7.8 Scanning Mixed Documents
When scanning documents of different thickness/Friction Coefficients/sizes using this scanner, the following restrictions apply. Before you scan any mixed documents, always test scan a few pages to see if the
mixed document can be properly fed.
(For details on how to scanning mixed documents, refer to “3.3 Scanning Documents with different widths” on
page 67.)
■ Types of Documents
It is recommended to align the paper direction (how the fibers are lying in the sheet) with the feeding direction.
■ The Thickness of Documents
The mixed documents’ paper weight (thickness) should be in the range below:
31 to 209g/m2 (8.3 to 56.1lb; 0.04 to 0.25mm)
For paper sizes equal or bigger than B4: 52 to 157 g/m2 (14 to 42 lb)
■ The Friction Coefficients
Paper of same manufacturer’s same brand is recommended. When paper of different manufactuerers/
brands are mixed, the differences of their friction coefficients become very large, which will adversely
affecting the feeding performance.
Generally speaking, the friction coefficients of different kinds of paper shall be in the range of 0.35 - 0.64.
■ Document Sizes
Refer to the table below when mixing documents of different sizes.
ATTENTION
168
• When scanning mixed size document, because the hopper side guides
will not function, the scanned images are easily skewed.
We recommend you to enable “Automatic Page Size Detection”.
• Multifeed Detection by length cannot be used together with “Automatic
Page Size Detection”.

8.4 Multifeed Detection
Multifeed refers to the phenomenon, when two or more documents are fed overlapping at once into the
scanner.
This may cause the loss of important data.
To prevent this, this scanner is equipped with a Multifeed detection function.
When function is activated, a message will be displayed and the scanning interrupted in case a Multifeed
has been detected.
Configure the settings for the Multifeed detection as follows.
1.
Start up the Software Operation Panel.
Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings” on page 173.
2.
Select [Device Setting 2] from left side list in the window, and select
[Multifeed] from its lower level.
3.
Select the detection method.

: No Multifeed detection will be performed.
Check Overlapping : Document overlapping will be monitored.
(Ultrasonic)
When this method is slected, two more options are available specified by other sections.
• Multifeed detection areas can be narrowed separately for left/middle/right Ultrasonic sensors to avoid unintensional multifeed detection of sticked photogragh or
something on the document. To specify this, go to Step 4.
• If photogragh or something is sticked on the document and its size and/or position
are same, you can easily let the scanner memorize its size and/or position just
scanning those document. To use this function, go to Section “8.10 Intelligent
Multifeed Function” or Section “3.12 Not detecting Multifeed for fixed
format”.

When “Enable“ is selected: Multi feed detection is disabled.
• For the multi feed detection, it is necessary to specify the range for the
length to at least 5 mm.
Please perform the setting for the detection area so, that following condition is met:
[“End:” position] - [“Start:” Position] ≧ 6mm

of the sticked paper is memorized by restarting the scanning. Multifeed is
bypassed, if the same-length paper is sticked at the same position on the document.
Auto mode 2 : Scanner detects multifeed and stops document feeding. The length of the sticked
paper is memorized by restarting the scanning. Multifeed is bypassed, if the
sticked paper is same or smaller than memorized length.

For details, refer to "7.2 Document Quality" on page 159.
(* 2)
The scanning speed is the maximum speed of the scanner hardware. The actual speed
may be slower due to the system overhead such as data transfer time.
(* 3)
With JPEG compression enabled
(* 4)
The maximum capacity varies depending on the document thickness. Refer to"7.3 Maximum Document Loading Capacity" on page 162 .
(* 5)
The SCSI and USB interface cannot be used together.
(* 6)
When using USB 2.0, you have to use a port compatible to USB 2.0. When connecting to
USB 1.1, the scanning speed will decrease.
(* 7)
Avoid connecting other SCSI devices to the same bus. It can reduce the scanner throughput.
(* 8)
You can imprint alphabetic characters and number on the scanned document.
The fi-590PRF (pre-imprinter) will print prior to scanning on the front side of the document.
The fi-590PRB (post-imprinter) will print after the scanning on the back side of the document.
You can install both the fi-590PRF and fi-590PRB, but you cannot use them at the same
time.
