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-150/CR-120 can feed a wide variety of document sizes. The ranges of height and length for a document are:

Height : 60 to 108 mm (2.4" to 4.3")

Length : 90 to 245 mm (3.5" to 9.6")

Thickness : 0.08 to 0.20 mm (0.003" to 0.008")

Weight : 64 to 157 g/m

2

(17 to 40 lb bond)

Length

Height

Follow these guidelines when you prepare a document for scanning:

• If the document exceeds 228 mm (8.98"), remove the eject stopper.

(See “Remove and attach the Eject Stopper,” on p. 24.)

• 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. 66.)

• 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.

47

Wrinkled or creased paper

Curled paper

Torn paper

Carbon backed paper

Coated paper or fax recording 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.

Envelope

You can also scan the envelope. When using separation OFF mode, you can scan an envelope with thickness up to 0.5 mm (0.02") or weight up to 413 g/m

2

(111 lb bond).

NOTE

Disable the double feed detection function. (See “Using Ultrasonic Double

Feed Detection,” on p. 49.)

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.

Cards (plastic cards)

You can also scan cards. To scan a card, use the card slot. With embossed cards, you can scan both sides. The number of cards that can be loaded is 1. The condition of the embossment may prevent you from getting an appropriate image. The specifications for cards that can be scanned are as follows:

Size : 86 mm (3.39") x 54 mm (2.13") (ISO/IEC standard)

Orientation : Horizontal feeding only.

For embossed cards : Up to 1.4 mm (0.055")

NOTE

If you try to transfer a check while a card is loaded in the card slot, the card is ejected because the feeding path is blocked.

48

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-120/CR-150:

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.

Placing Documents

Note the following points when placing documents on the scanner.

• Place the document so that the side to be scanned faces the side shown in the figure below.

• A maximum of 150 documents can be loaded at one time (80 g/ m

2

(21 lb bond)). Make sure stacks do not exceed 15 mm (0.59") in height (including curling).

• Additional documents can be placed while the machine is scanning.

IMPORTANT

Align the documents and set the bottom of the documents level in the document tray (Document Feed/Eject Tray).

Do not exceed the load capacity when placing documents.

Removing the Eject Stopper

If the document exceeds 228 mm (8.98"), remove the eject stopper. (See

“Remove and attach the Eject Stopper,” on p. 24 .

)

49

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 anything except the operation buttons when documents are being fed.

• Do not touch documents that are being fed under any circumstances. The documents that are being fed may cut your hand.

Scan Procedure

A

Open the Document Feed / Eject Tray.

B

Carefully align the edges of the document.

C

Loads the documents with their front sides facing right and without exceeding the load capacity.

D

E

Adjust the Eject Stopper in accordance with the document.

Instruct scanning to start from the software application.

NOTE

When Using the Accompanying Scanning Utility for CR-120/CR-150:

Other

Causes

• Some of the MICR characters are scratched or missing.

Splattered MICR ink or toner may also be the problem.

Condition The imprinter is not printing correctly (missing imprint dots).

Cause and

Remedy

Other

Causes

Ink is clogged in the ink jet nozzle. Clean the ink jet nozzle. Cleaning the ink jet nozzle is recommended

before using the CR-150/CR-120. (See “Cleaning the Ink

Jet Nozzles,” on p. 70.)

The ink cartridge may be empty.

Condition Documents get dirty when using the imprinter.

Cause and

Remedy

Ink from the imprinter has been placed on the feed path.

Clean the ink off the feed path. (See “Cleaning the Ink Jet

Nozzles,” on p. 70 and “Cleaning the Feed Path,” on p. 64.)

Condition Scanning speed had reduced suddenly.

Cause and

Remedy

Processing may be slowed when scanning in the long period of time and continuously to avoid overheat inside the scanner. Wait a while before scanning again.

62

When the Scanned Image Is Not

Normal

If there is a problem with the scanned image (the image is not sharp or stripes appear), one of the following conditions may be a probable cause. Check the following conditions, and take the appropriate action.

The scanning glass or rollers are dirty.

If the scanning glass or rollers are dirty, the dirt will appear on the scanned image.

Clean the scanning glass and rollers. For details, see “Cleaning the Scanning Glass and Rollers,” on p. 66.

The scan conditions are inappropriate.

If the scan conditions are inappropriate, the scanned image will not be sharp or will appear as dark.

Check the brightness and other scanner settings.

If the scanned image is blurry or the document has not been scanned at all, the brightness may be set too high.

If the scanned image appears dark, the brightness may be set too low.

Check the basic Scanning Conditions. (UV models only)

If other than [16-level Gray] or [256-level Gray] is selected for Mode menu in the scanner driver, the scanned image may not be appropriate.

Also, check the settings on the driver and the software application.

The driver or application does not run correctly.

If the document cannot be scanned correctly even if the scan conditions are adjusted, the driver or the application may not be functioning correctly.

Reinstall the driver or application.

For details on how to install the driver, see “Installing the Software,” on p. 7.

For details on how to install the application, see the applications instruction manual.

Memory becomes insufficient and scanning stops.

If you configure scanning conditions that use a large amount of the computer’s memory, scanning may stop because of insufficient memory. Although this depends on the computer’s memory size, the possibility of insufficient memory increases if any of the following scanning conditions overlap.

• The page size is set to [Scanner’s Maximum].

• A high resolution (300dpi etc.) is specified for [Dots per inch].

If an error message appears due to insufficient memory while scanning is in progress, exit the application, change the scanning conditions (e.g. reduce the resolution or page size) and then try scanning again.

Other Causes

Even if the computer may be recognizing the scanner correctly, and the driver and the application is installed correctly, scanning may not be performed correctly. If this happens, the interface card is not compatible. Use the recommended interface card.

If the above remedies do not rectify the problem, contact your local authorized Canon dealer or service representative to have the scanner serviced.
