Outside of Scan Area Error

This error occurs when you perform scanning using the ADF and the bottom edge of the document is detected before the scanning starts.



Outside of the document may have been scanned because the document is shorter than the specified paper size. Perform one of the following, and then scan again.

  • Load a longer document matching the specified scan area in the ADF paper chute (Feeder).
  • Review the scan settings of the application, and set the document so the position to start the scan is ahead of the bottom edge of the document.


Ways to designate the scan area differ depending on the application. For details, refer to the manual of the application.
