Loading Multiple Sizes of Originals in the Input Tray

You can load originals of different sizes, paper types, and thicknesses at one time in the input tray. Just make sure they meet the original document specifications.
Caution:
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.
  2. Pull out the output tray and its extension, and open the stopper.


    Note: If you are loading originals that are 15.5 inches (393.8 mm) or longer, do not pull out the input or output tray extensions and do not open the stopper.
  3. Slide the input tray edge guides all the way out.


  4. Load the originals in the center of the input tray in descending order of paper size with the widest at the back and the narrowest at the front. Slide them in until they meet resistance. Make sure the printed sides are facedown and the top edges are slightly angled in the input tray.

  5. Slide the edge guides against the edges of the widest original.
  6. If necessary during scanning, adjust the position of the stopper on the output tray extension to fit the ejected originals.
    Note: If thicker paper does not eject properly or falls from the output tray, push in the output tray and allow the originals to eject freely onto the surface below the scanner. If the scanned images are affected by the originals ejecting below the scanner, try placing the scanner on the edge of a table where the ejected originals can drop freely.
If scanning thin or wrinkled paper causes paper jams, slow down the feeding speed by selecting Settings > Scanner Settings > Slow > On on the LCD screen.

You can also scan originals of multiple sizes by loading them one by one using the Automatic Feeding Mode setting in Epson Scan 2.
