Original Scan Settings

Scanning originals of different sizes ([Mixed Original])

When an original consists of multiple pages of different sizes, the pages can be scanned at one time by using the ADF if they have the same width in the inch size.

  • This function is available only for the following original sizes.
    8-1/2 11, 8-1/2 14, 5-1/2 8-1/2

Specifying the original size ([Original Size])

Select the size of the original to be scanned.

Specifying the original loading direction ([Original Direction])

When scanning a 2-sided original, specify the original loading direction so that the vertical direction of the scanned original is set correctly.

Scanning a number of originals in several batches ([Separate Scan])

If the number of original sheets is so large that they cannot be loaded into the ADF at the same time, you can load them in several batches and handle them as one job. You can also scan the original using both ADF and Original Glass alternately.

  1. Load the original.

    • Do not load more than 80 sheets (21-1/4 lb (80 g/m2)) at a time into the Original Tray of the ADF, and do not load the sheets up to the point where the top of the stack is higher than the mark. Doing so may cause an original paper jam, original damage, or ADF failure.

  2. Set [Separate Scan] to ON.

  3. Use the Start key to start scanning.

  4. Load the next original.

    • If necessary, tap [Change Setting] to change the scan settings.

  5. Use the Start key to start scanning.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 to scan all the originals.

  7. After all originals have been scanned, select [Finish].

  8. Use the Start key to start copying.

Skipping blank pages ([Blank Page Removal])

When [Blank Page Removal] is specified to scan an original including blank pages using the ADF, blank pages are excluded from scan targets. Blank pages detected are not counted as original pages.
