    If you are uncertain of the legality of scanning any particular item, you should consult your legal adviser in advance.
    General Handling Precautions
    WARNING• Do not take apart or modify the scanner and supplies. Fire or electrical shock may result from 
    improper handling of its components.
    • If you hear unusual noises, see smoke, feel excessive heat or smell anything unusual, immediately 
    unplug the power cord and contact your retailer or Canon Customer Support Help Desk. Continued 
    use of the scanner may result in fires or electrical shock.
    • Do not use flammable sprays near the scanner. Also do not enter metallic objects or spill water, 
    liquids, or flammable materials on the scanner. If they enter and contact the inner electrical parts, fire 
    or electrical shock may result.
    • When cleaning the scanner, always unplug the power cord. Wipe with a soft dry cloth. When it is still 
    dirty, use a cloth damped with water and wrung well, and then wipe off moisture with a soft dry cloth. 
    Do not use flammable liquids such as alcohol, benzene or thinners. If a flammable liquid enters the 
    inner electrical parts or the cables are damaged by plugging/unplugging, fire or electrical shock may 
    If anything enters the scanner, immediately unplug the power cord. Then contact your retailer or Canon
    Customer Support Help Desk.
    CAUTION• Do not release the document cover until it completely opens/closes. If the document cover falls, it 
    may lead to pinch your hands or damage the scanner and result in injury.
    • Do not place items that weigh 4.4 lbs. (2.0 kg) or more on the document glass. Also, do not press 
    heavily (i.e., more than 4.4 lbs. (2.0 kg)) on the document cover or the document glass. The 
    document glass may break and cause personal injury.
    • Do not bump the document glass or drop heavy books or objects on it. The document glass may 
    break and injure you.

    • When transporting the scanner, always unplug the cables. Damaged cables could cause fire or 
    electrical shock.
    • Do not use the supplied CD-ROM in regular CD players. It produces excessively loud sound that may 
    cause hearing damage.
    Setup and Operating Conditions
    • Do not set up in areas where there are excessive fluctuations in temperature. Also do not move the 
    scanner from low-temperature areas to high-temperature areas. Condensation may cause image 
    errors. Leave the scanner enough time to gradually adapt to the new conditions before use.
    • Do not place the scanner in areas subject to direct sunlight or strong room light. It may cause 
    damage to the scanner or decrease image quality. If you have to place it in direct sunlight, make sure 
    to use a thick curtain to block the light.
    • Leave enough space (approximately 8 in. (20 cm)) around the scanner when setting up.
