Loading Documents Directly

Caution:

Open and extend the input tray. Then, slide out and extend the output tray.
Slide the edge guides on the input tray all the way outward.
Load your documents into the input tray with the printed side facing down and the top edge facing into the feeder.
Slide the paper into the feeder until it meets resistance. Then slide the edge guides over to fit the edge of the paper.
To start scanning, see Starting a Scan Using Epson Scan for instructions.

Loading Documents With the Carrier Sheet

Documents having irregular shape.
Documents with folds or wrinkles.
Photos or other valuable originals.
Open the carrier sheet and place the document inside on the top-center of the carrier sheet.
If the document is larger than letter- or A4-size, neatly fold the document with the printed side facing outward.
Load the carrier sheet into the input tray with the printed side facing down and the top edge facing into the feeder.
If you placed a folded document into the carrier sheet, load the carrier sheet into the input tray with the left side of the original document facing down and the top edge facing into the feeder.
Slide the carrier sheet into the feeder until it meets resistance. Then slide the edge guides over to fit the edges of the carrier sheet.
