    Warning: Do not load the following types of originals directly in the scanner, or they may be damaged or may damage the scanner:
    • Photos
    • Originals that are bound (thicker than 0.08 inch (2 mm) when closed)
    • Fabric or other non-paper originals
    • Originals containing staples or paper clips
    • Originals with glue attached
    • Ripped originals
    • Heavily wrinkled or curled originals
    • Transparencies
    • Originals with carbon paper backing
    • Originals with wet ink
    • Originals with attached sticky notes

    You can scan A5-sized bound originals that are less than 0.08 inch (2 mm) when closed

    You can scan ripped, wrinkled, or curled originals using a carrier sheet (not included).

    Do not feed valuable photos, artwork, or important documents into the scanner directly. Misfeeding may wrinkle or damage the original. When scanning these types of originals, use a carrier sheet (not included).

    Caution:
    Be careful when loading the following types of originals, or they may be damaged or may not scan successfully:Originals with uneven surfaces, such as embossed documents Curled or wrinkled originalsPerforated originalsOriginals with labels or stickersCarbon-less paperRipped, curled, or wrinkled originals Coated paper

    Warning: Carbon-less paper contains chemical substances that may damage the rollers inside the scanner. Make sure you clean the pickup roller and the separation rollers regularly. Scanning carbon-less paper may reduce the service life of the rollers compared with scanning plain paper.

    Note: When attempting to scan these types of originals, note the following:

    • Slow down the feeding speed when scanning wrinkled originals, and smooth out the wrinkles if possible
    • Use the optional carrier sheet to scan originals that are delicate or wrinkled
    • If originals are incorrectly detected as double feeds, set the DFDS Function to On on the control panel, or select Off as the Detect Double Feed setting in Epson Scan 2
    • Labels or stickers must be firmly adhered to the scanned original with no exposed glue
    • Try to flatten curled originals as much as possible
