Read all these instructions, and follow all warnings and instructions marked on the product.
Place the product on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the product in all directions. If you
place the product by the wall, leave more than 10 cm (4 inches) between the back of the product and the wall.
The product will not operate properly if it is tilted at an angle.
Avoid places subject to dust, shocks, or vibrations.
Place the product close enough to the computer for the interface cable to reach it easily. Do not place or store
the product or the power cord outdoors, near excessive dirt or dust, water, heat sources, or in locations subject
to shocks, vibrations, high temperature or humidity, direct sunlight, strong light sources, or rapid changes in
temperature or humidity.
Do not use with wet hands.
Place the product near an electrical outlet where the adapter can be easily unplugged.
The power cord should be placed to avoid abrasions, cuts, fraying, crimping, and kinking. Do not place objects
on top of the cord and do not allow the power cord to be stepped on or run over. Be particularly careful to keep
the cord straight at the end.
Use only the power cord that comes with your product. Using any other adapter could cause fire, electrical
shock, or injury.
The power cord is designed for use with the product with which it was included. Do not attempt to use it with
other electronic devices unless specified.
Use only the type of power source indicated on the product’s label, and always supply power directly from a
standard domestic electrical outlet.
When connecting this product to a computer or other device with a cable, ensure the correct orientation of the
connectors. Each connector has only one correct orientation. Inserting a connector in the wrong orientation may
damage both devices connected by the cable.
Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
If you use an extension cord with the product, make sure the total ampere rating of the devices plugged into the
extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure the total ampere rating of all devices
plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating.
Never disassemble, modify, or attempt to repair the product, or product option by yourself except as specifically
explained in the product’s guides.
Do not insert objects into any opening as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts. Beware of
electrical shock hazards.
If damage occurs to the plug, replace the cord set or consult a qualified electrician. If there are fuses in the plug,
make sure you replace them with fuses of the correct size and rating.
Unplug the product and the power cord, and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions: The power cord or plug is damaged; liquid has entered the product; the product or the power cord
has been dropped or the case has been damaged; the product or the power cord does not operate normally or
exhibits a distinct change in performance. (Do not adjust controls that are not covered by the operating
instructions.)
Unplug the product and the power cord before cleaning. Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not use liquid or
aerosol cleaners.
If you are not going to use the product for a long period, be sure to unplug the power cord from the electrical
outlet.
After replacing consumable parts, dispose of them correctly following the rules of your local authority. Do not
disassemble them.
Because the product is heavy, one person should never attempt to lift or carry it alone. Two people should lift
and carry the product.
WARNING for United States users:
The cords included with this product contain chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California
to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling. (provided in
accordance with Proposition 65 in Cal. Health & Safety Code § 25249.5 et seq)

Important:
Do not press the glass surface of the document glass with any force.
Be careful not to scratch or damage the glass surface of the document glass, and do not use a
hard or abrasive brush to clean it. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scan quality.
Never use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvent to clean the product. These chemicals can
damage the product components and the case.
Be careful not to spill liquid into the product mechanism or electronic components. This could
permanently damage the mechanism and circuitry.

Never open the product case.
Turn off the product.
Unplug the power cord from the product.
Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with mild detergent and water.

other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all
remaining liquid.
Make sure that dust does not build up on the glass surface. Dust can cause spots and straight lines in your scanned
images.
Important:
Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the glass surface.
Clean the document cover if it gets dirty.
Open the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) cover and use a soft, dry, clean cloth to clean the roller and the
