Outside of the ScanSnap

Were the white sheets covered by your hands or any other objects when the ScanSnap was turned on or when scanning started?

Is the camera of the ScanSnap dirty?

Clean the camera of the ScanSnap.

For details about how to perform cleaning, refer to Cleaning the ScanSnap.

Is the camera of the ScanSnap covered with an object such as a seal or a sticky note?

The camera in the scanning unit monitors an area on the Background Pad to detect page turnings. Therefore, if the camera is covered with an object attached to the scanning unit such as a seal or a sticky note, it does not detect page turnings and the subsequent scan does not begin.

Make sure that the camera is not covered with any objects. If it is covered with objects, remove them.

Did you bend or fold the pages when turning them?

If pages are bent or folded during page turning detection, scanning may not start.

Be careful not to bend or fold a page when turning it.

Is bright sunlight/additional interior light or infrared light from a heater/incandescent lamp shining directly on the ScanSnap or the Background Pad?

If bright or infrared light directly shines on the ScanSnap or the Background Pad, scanning may not start when you turn the page. Also, if a shadow of a person or other object is on the Background Pad due to bright light, scanning may not start when you turn the page.

Prevent bright light or infrared light from being in contact with the ScanSnap or the Background Pad, and try scanning again.
