HP Scanjet Enterprise 7500 - Load originals

You can load originals into your scanner using one of the following methods:
Use the automatic document feeder (ADF)
For helpful information on loading your documents properly, refer to the following topics.
Document loading tips
  • The maximum capacity of the document feeder and output tray varies by paper size and weight. For 75 g/m2 (20 lb) paper (the standard weight for most printer and photocopier paper), the maximum capacity is 100 sheets. For heavier paper, the maximum capacity is less.
  • The automatic document feeder (ADF) supports the following paper types.
    Width
    Length
    Weight (or thickness)
    Standard stock (single page)
    68-216 mm
    148-864 mm
    49-120 g/m2
    Standard stock (multiple pages)
    68-216 mm
    148-356 mm
    49-120 g/m2
  • In the scanning software, always specify the following items:
    • Set the page size to match the width and length of the paper that you are scanning.
    • Select a profile whose page loading selection matches the edge you are feeding first.
  • Scanning the following types of documents with the ADF might result in paper jams or damage to the documents. To scan these documents, use the scanner glass instead of the ADF.

  • Smooth out any folds or curls in your documents before placing them into the feeder. If the leading edge of a document is curled or folded, it may cause a paper jam.
  • When loading paper that is smaller than 148 mm in width, place the long edge of the page parallel to the paper guides.
  • To scan fragile documents (such as photos or documents on wrinkled or very lightweight paper), place the document face down on the scanner glass.
  • Make sure that the hatch on the document feeder is securely latched. To properly close the hatch, press until you hear a click.
  • Adjust the paper guides to the width of the documents. Make sure that the paper guides touch the edges of the original. If there is any clearance between the paper guides and the edges of the documents, the scanned image might be skewed.
  • When placing a stack of documents into the feeder, gently set the stack in the document feeder. Do not drop the stack into the feeder.
      note:
    The document load/detect LED on the clear portion of the document feeder input tray is on when documents are positioned correctly.
  • To prevent skewing, always load stacks of documents of the same dimensions. However, if you must load stacks of mixed document sizes, center all documents in the stack by width before inserting them in the document feeder.
  • Clean the scanning rollers if the rollers are visibly dirty or after scanning a document that has pencil writing on it.
How to load documents
  1. Adjust the paper guides to the width of the documents. Take care not to overtighten the guides, which can restrict paper feeding.

    When scanning small originals such as checks, it is especially important that the paper guides fit snugly against the edges of the original.
  2. Fan the stack of document pages to ensure that the pages do not stick together. Fan the edge that will be pointing into the feeder in one direction, and then fan that same edge in the opposite direction.

  3. Align the edges of the documents by tapping the bottom of the stack against the table top. Rotate the stack 90 degrees and repeat.

  4. Gently set the stack in the document feeder. Load the pages face up with the top of the pages pointing into the feeder.
    For best results, do not drop the stack into the feeder and do not tap the top edge of the stack after you have placed it in the document feeder.

      note:
    Avoid feeding a document with a leading edge that has been folded or frayed. When you begin scanning, select a profile whose page loading selection matches the edge you are feeding first to ensure that the scan reflects the orientation of the original document.
  5. Verify that the paper guides are aligned with the edges of the stack.
Use the scanner glass
Place items that do not meet the specifications for the automatic document feeder (ADF) directly onto the scanner glass.
Minimum size:
No minimum size
Maximum size:
216 x 356 mm
  note:
Not all the length of the scanner glass is in the active imaging area, so make sure to position your originals as indicated by the reference mark on the edge of the scanner glass.
Place the original face down on the scanner glass, as indicated by the reference mark. For landscape pages, place the page face down with the top of the page pointing toward the back of the scanner.

  note:
To scan multiple pictures at the same time, arrange the pictures that you want to scan on the scanner glass with at least 6 mm of space between items.
