Replacing the Pad Unit

Replace the consumable (pad unit) of the ScanSnap when the replacement cycle is reached.

The suggested replacement cycle is as follows:

  • Every 30,000 sheets scanned

  • Every one year of use

Replace the consumable when either the number of sheets scanned or the period of use reaches the suggested replacement cycle.

  • Before replacing the consumable, you must turn off the ScanSnap and unplug the power cable from the AC outlet. Not doing so may cause fire or electrical shock.

  • Do not place internal parts such as the pad unit and the pick roller within reach of small children. Doing so may cause injury.

ATTENTION
  • The bottom part of the ScanSnap may become hot when the ScanSnap is being used, but this does not affect ScanSnap operation or cause any physical harm. Be careful not to drop the ScanSnap when carrying it.
