Can scan from the glass or the document feeder but not both
Last Updated 8 years ago

I’ve had a few support tickets about the station scanners either not scanning from the feeder or not scanning from the glass but not both.

Here are some tips:

  • 1. If you scan from one source and then switch to another i.e. glass scanning and then try to use the document feeder you may get a warning and the scan may fail.
  • 2. To resolve this close the scanning program, reopen it and try again.
