This section explains the basic procedure for sending scan files using WSD.


  1. Make sure that no previous settings remain.

    If a previous setting remains, press the [Clear Modes] key.

    Note that only [Erase Border] can be specified directly from this machine. Use the client computer to configure the other scan settings. For details, see "Changing a Scan Profile".

  5. If necessary, specify the scanning density.

    For details, see "Adjusting Image Density".

  6. If necessary, press [Original Feed Type] to configure the stamp and original orientation settings.

    For details, see "Setting of Original Feed Type".

  7. Specify the destination.

    For details, see "Specifying the Destination Client Computer".

  8. Press the [Start] key.

    When scanning batches, place subsequent originals after the scan files have been sent.


    • If you are using this machine as a WSD scanner, you can specify only one destination per scan job.

    • You cannot preview scanned images. After pressing the [Start] key, you can view the scanned images on your computer.

    • To cancel a specified destination, press the destination again, or press the [Clear/Stop] key.

    • To cancel scanning, press the [Clear/Stop] key.

    • You cannot store files scanned using WSD on the machine.

    • You cannot use WSD to send files stored on the machine.

    • You cannot scan originals while other originals are being scanned.

    • When two-sided originals are being scanned, [Page Opening Orientation] is set to [Top to Top].

    • If scanning takes too long, the computer might time out, causing the error message [Automatic Scanning could not be completed] to appear. If this happens, the scan files are sent again. To check the files have been sent successfully, use the machine's Scanned Files Status screen or a client computer. For details, see "Scanned Files Status".

    • If scanning does not begin after you press the [Start] key, the machine might not be registered to the computer or the profile might be incorrectly configured. For details, see "Registering the Machine to the client computer" or "Creating a New Scan Profile".

    • After scan files are sent, their destination settings are automatically cleared. If you want to preserve this information, contact your local dealer for details.
