Placing Originals on the Scanner Glass

You can place originals directly on the scanner glass.
Do not place heavy objects on the scanner glass and do not press on the glass with too much force, or it may damage the scanner. Do not leave photos on the scanner glass for an extended period, or they may stick to the glass.
  1. Open the scanner cover.

  2. Place your original facedown on the scanner glass with the top edge facing as shown. Slide the original to the edges of the indicated corner.

    Note: You can place multiple originals on the scanner glass. Make sure they are at least 0.8 inch (20 mm) away from each other.
    Note: The edges of your original may be cropped by 0.1 inch (2.5 mm) from the left side and top edges. If you are scanning in Full Auto mode or using thumbnail preview in another mode in Epson Scan, the edges of your original may be cropped by about 0.24 inch (6 mm) from the top and side edges. Manually position your original away from the edges to prevent cropping.

  3. Close the scanner cover gently to keep your original in place.
