How do I load originals in the input slot?

    You can load an original that meets the document specifications in the input slot.

    Caution:
    Do not load photos, or valuable original documents or artwork, directly into the scanner. This may wrinkle or damage the original.

    Note: The illustrations show the DS-70 model, but the steps are the same for the DS-80W.

    • For standard size originals, slide your original into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance. Make sure the printed side is faceup and top edge first.

    • For longer originals, slide your original into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance. Make sure the printed side is faceup and top edge first. Set the paper size in the scanning program and support the original as it enters into and ejects from the scanner.

    • For receipts, support the original by hand and load it into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance. Make sure the printed side is faceup and top edge first.

    • For envelopes, slide the original into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance. Make sure the printed side is faceup and the flap is facing as shown. For envelopes with the flap on the shorter side, load the envelope with the flap side last.

      Caution:
      Do not load envelopes with adhesives on them.

    • For plastic cards, load the card horizontally into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance. Make sure the printed side is faceup.

      Caution:
      Do not load plastic cards vertically or at an angle.

    • For irregularly shaped originals, use an optional carrier sheet (part number B12B819451). Make sure the illustration on the front edge of the carrier sheet is faceup with the original faceup against the left side. Slide the carrier sheet top edge first into the input slot against the left side as shown until it meets resistance.



      Note: Only use the carrier sheet designed for your scanner. If the carrier sheet is scratched or has been scanned more than 3,000 times, stop using it and obtain a new one.
