On the scanner glass

Use the scanner glass to copy or scan originals. It is possible to get the best scan quality, especially for colored or gray-scaled images. Make sure that no originals are in the document feeder. If an original is detected in the document feeder, the printer gives it priority over the original on the scanner glass.
  1. Lift and open the scanner lid.
    Figure : Open lid
  2. Place the original face down on the scanner glass. Align it with the registration guide at the top left corner of the glass.
    Figure : Paper alignment
  3. Close the scanner lid.
  • Leaving the scanner lid open while copying might affect copy quality and toner consumption.
  • Dust on the scanner glass might cause black spots on the printout. Always keep it clean, see Cleaning the machine.
  • When copying a page from a book or magazine, lift the scanner lid until its hinges are caught by the stopper and then close the lid. If the book or magazine is thicker than 30 mm, start copying with the scanner lid open.
  • Be careful not to break the scanner glass. Injury might occur.
  • Do not put hands while closing the scanner lid. The scanner lid might fall on your hands and cause injury.
  • Do not look at the light from inside of the scanner while copying or scanning. It is harmful to eyes.

In the document feeder

  1. Flex or fan the edge of the paper stack to separate the pages before loading originals.
