Transporting the Scanner

Before transporting the scanner for a long distance or storing it for an extended period of time, you need to lock the scanner’s carriage and transparency unit to prevent damage.

Plug in the scanner, connect it to your computer, turn on the scanner using its power switch, and wait until the carriage moves to the home position (near the cover hinge). While the scanner light is green, turn off the scanner using its power switch.


If the optional ADF is installed, disconnect its cable and remove it from the scanner. Place the scanner cover on the scanner, but do not connect the cover cable.

Open the scanner cover and slide the transparency unit transportation lock to the locked position. Then close the scanner cover.

If the cover cable is attached, disconnect it.

On the back of the scanner, slide the transportation lock to the locked position to secure the scanner carriage.

Attach the protective materials, then repack the scanner in its original box or a similar box that fits the scanner snugly.
