Placing Originals in the Auto Document Feeder

Place originals in the ADF.

Be sure not to block the sensor or load the original untidily. Doing so may cause the machine to detect the size of the original incorrectly or display a paper misfeed message. Also, be sure not to place originals or other objects on the top cover. Doing so may cause a malfunction.

  • Set the original squarely.
