  • Page 26: Placing Documents

    2-3 Placing Documents There are two methods for feeding documents, the Page Separation mode and Bypass mode. Feeding pages continuously from a stack of documents placed in the feed tray is called the Page Separation mode. Feeding documents one sheet at a time or feeding documents consisting of multiple pages that are attached, is called the bypass mode.
  • Page 27 Fan the pages of the document to be scanned and align their edges. CAUTION • Do not place the documents on top of the scanner to align them. Doing so may cause a malfunction. • When placing documents into the feed tray, take care not to cut your hands on the edges of the paper.
  • Page 28 IMPORTANT There is a load limit mark ( stack documents higher than this mark (approximately 100 sheets of 20 lb bond (80 g/m ) paper.) Doing so may cause a paper jam. Adjust the document guides to fit the width of the document. Note Before scanning, make sure that the document is not curled or creased, and that it is placed in the feed tray correctly.
