Loading documents in the ADF

Do not feed photographs or valuable original artwork into the ADF. Misfeeding may wrinkle or damage the original. Scan these documents on the document glass instead.
Remove any documents from the document glass. Make sure there is no dust on the glass before loading documents in the ADF.
Slide the edge guides on the ADF input tray all the way outward.
Place the first page of your document in the ADF input tray with the printed side facing up and the top edge facing into the feeder. Slide the paper into the feeder until it meets resistance. Then slide the edge guides over to the edge of the paper.
Do not load paper above the line just under the arrow mark on the edge guides.
When loading a stack of paper, fan the paper to remove any paper powder, tap the edges of the paper on a flat surface to align the sheets, and then load it correctly.
Do not load additional documents while the current document is being scanned.
