Loading Originals in the Input Tray

You can load originals that meet the document specifications in the input tray.
Do not load photos, or valuable original documents or artwork, directly into the input tray. This may wrinkle or damage the original. Load these originals using an optional carrier sheet.
  1. Pull up the input tray extension, extend the output tray, and flip up the stopper.

    Note: If you are scanning originals longer than Letter (8.5 × 11 inches [216 × 279 mm]) size, do not flip up the stopper.
  2. Slide the input tray edge guides all the way out.

  3. Check to make sure that the page separation lever is in the position shown here.

    Note: To prevent paper jams, keep the lever in this position for most types of documents.
  4. If you are loading a multi-page document, fan your stack of originals and tap them gently on a flat surface to even the edges.

  5. Slide your originals into the input tray as shown until they meet resistance. Make sure the printed side is face down and top edge first.

    Note: If you are loading a paper business card, load it horizontally.
  6. Slide the edge guides against the edges of the original.
