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-50/80 can feed a wide variety of document sizes. The ranges
of height and length for a document are:
Height : 50 to 108 mm (2.0" to 4.3")
Length : 80 to 228 mm (3.1" to 9.0")
Thickness : 0.08 to 0.20 mm (0.003" to 0.008")
0.10 to 0.14 mm (0.004" to 0.006") with Double Feed
Detection enabled
Weight : 64 to 157 g/m2 (17 to 40 lb bond)
81 to 105 g/m2 (21.5 to 26.8 lb bond) with Double Feed
Detection enabled
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.
Length
Height
33
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
• When Using the Accompanying Scanning Utility for CR-50/80:
You can disable the double feed detection function from [Scanner
Setting] in the Scanning Utility.
• For more details about how to configure scanning parameters, click the
[Help] button in the settings dialog box to view the Canon driver help.
IMPORTANT
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.
Using Infrared Double Feed Detection
The double feed detection function that the scanner is equipped with
uses the infrared sensor 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.
34
• The following types of document may be misdetected as double fed:
• Documents with a colored background
• Documents with a glossy finish
If misdetection of double feeds occurs often, turn off double feed
detection.
• Double feed detection is valid for documents with a thickness within the
range 0.10 mm to 0.14 mm (0.004" to 0.006"). Double feeds cannot be
detected for thicker or thinner documents.
Placing Documents
Note the following points when placing documents on the scanner.
• Place the front of the document toward you.
• A maximum of 50 documents or a document stack no higher than
5 mm (0.2") can be loaded at one time.
• Move the stopper to the edge of the document in the document
tray in accordance with the document. Otherwise, this may
cause a paper eject error.
• When scanning multiple documents, sort them into batches of
uniform paper quality and thickness and load each batch
separately. Note that loading mixed batches may cause paper
jams.
• When scanning relatively thick (0.15 mm to 0.2 mm (0.005" to
0.008") documents, the feeding process may cause the
document to curl and cause paper jams at the document feed
opening. For such documents, load no more than 10 sheets at
one time.
Document Feeding and Scanning
This section describes how to load and scan documents.
CAUTION
• Avoid wearing loose fitting clothing, dangling jewelry, long ties,
or long hair that could become entangled with moving parts,
especially the rollers that feed paper through the scanner. If such
objects become entangled, immediately disconnect the power
plug from the power outlet.
• Check the paper stack and remove all clips, staples, pins, or any
other type of metal or plastic fastener. These objects may cause
damage to the document, a paper jam, or a scanner malfunction.
• Do not touch documents that are being fed under any
circumstances. The documents that are being fed may cut your
hand.
IMPORTANT
Align the documents and set the bottom of the documents level in the
document tray.
