how to scan from the automatic

document feeder

image62

This section explains how to use the automatic document feeder (ADF) for the HP Scanjet 5590 scanner.

choose acceptable media for the ADF

The ADF works best when the originals meet the following specifications. If the originals do not meet these criteria, scan from the scanner glass.

For one-sided scanning, you can use legal-size paper: 210 mm by 355.6 mm (8.5 by 14 inches).
For two-sided scanning, use A4-size or letter-size media. The ADF cannot scan both sides of a document smaller than 127 mm by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches) or larger than 210 mm by 304.8 mm (8.5 by 12 inches).
Custom-size media ranging from 88.9 mm by 127 mm (3.5 by 5 inches) to 216 mm by 356 mm (8.5 by 14 inches) can be scanned with the one-sided option.

Tip: To scan both sides of a legal-size document, 216 mm by

356 mm (8.5 by 14 inches), scan one side in the ADF, turn the document over, and then scan the other side in the ADF.

Media weights from 60 to 90 grams per square meter (g/m2) (16 to 24 lbs).
Media that does not contain perforations or punch holes.
Media that does not contain wet glue, correction fluid, or ink.

Note: Avoid putting multipart forms, transparencies, magazine pages, gum-backed pages, and lightweight paper in the ADF.

Before placing an original in the ADF, check for and remove curls, wrinkles, staples, paperclips, and any other attached material.

load originals in the ADF

1Place a stack of similarly sized documents face-up in the document input tray, with the first page on top.

image63

Load a document and center it in the ADF tray

2Adjust the paper guides to center the stack.
3Press a scanner button or use the HP Director to begin scanning. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to finish scanning.

how to scan from the automatic document feeder

scan two-sided documents from the ADF

When you scan documents from the ADF, the What are you scanning? dialog box appears. Select Yes, scan both sides for two-sided scanning.

The ADF is unable to scan both sides of documents longer than 12 inches. To scan longer two-sided documents, you must set the ADF to scan only one side at a time. To change this setting, clear the Yes, scan both sides option in the What are you scanning? dialog box.

One-sided scanning is the default method for the ADF. To change this default to two-sided scanning, open the HP Director, click Settings and then click Scan Preferences. Click the Automatic tab, and then select the setting that you want to assign as the default.

Note: Use A4- or letter-size media for two-sided scanning. The ADF cannot scan both sides of a document smaller than 127 mm by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches) or larger than 210 mm by 304.8 mm (8.5 by 12 inches).

If you are acquiring your scan from an imaging software program using TWAIN, the Commercial Scanjet 5590 TWAIN software offers additional capabilities for brightness and contrast, and improved performance and control for two-sided scanning. For more information about installing the Commercial Scanjet 5590 TWAIN software, see install the scanning software on page 1.

make copies from the ADF

You can use the Copy button ( image65 ) to scan multiple originals from the ADF and send them to a printer. The copy function defaults to the setting used the last time you made copies. For two-sided copies, open the HP Director, and then click Make Copies. Select the Duplex option in the hp copying dialog box. For more information, see print copies on page 5.

how to scan slides and negatives

This section contains information about setting up and using the transparent materials adapter (TMA) to scan slides and negatives. You can use the TMA to scan 35 mm slides or negatives.

tips for scanning transparent items

To scan items larger than those that the TMA accepts, place the transparency on the scanner glass, place a white sheet of paper on top of the transparency, and then scan as usual.
When scanning a 35 mm slide or negative, the scanner software automatically enlarges the image to approximately 11 cm by 15 cm (4 by 6 inches). If you want the final image to be larger or smaller, use the Resize tool in the scanner software to set the scaling to the final size that you want. The scanner will scan the item at the proper resolution and enlargement for the size that you select.
To scan 35 mm slides or negatives by using the TMA, press the SCAN PICTURE button ( image68 ) on the front of the scanner, or click Scan Picture in the HP Director.

care and maintenance

This section presents information about how to care for and maintain the scanner.

Occasional cleaning of your scanner helps ensure optimal performance. The amount of care necessary depends upon several factors, including the amount of use, the type of media that is fed through the ADF, and the environment. You should perform routine cleaning as necessary.

Routine cleaning and maintenance should include cleaning the scanner glass, the TMA, and the ADF.

Caution! Avoid placing items that have sharp edges in the scanner. Doing so can damage the scanner. Before placing an item on the scanner glass, make sure that the item does not contain wet glue, correction fluid, or other substances that can be transferred to the glass.

clean the scanner glass

1Disconnect the universal serial bus (USB) cable and power cable from the scanner.
2Clean the glass by using a soft, lint-free cloth that has been sprayed with a mild glass cleaner, and dry the glass with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth.

Caution! Use only glass cleaner. Avoid abrasives, acetone, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride, all of which can damage the scanner glass. Avoid isopropyl alcohol because it can leave streaks on the glass.

Do not spray the glass cleaner directly on the glass. If too much glass cleaner is applied, the cleaner could run to the edges and damage the scanner.

3When you have finished, reconnect the USB cable and power cable to the scanner.

Note: For instructions about how to clean the underside of the scanner glass, visit www.hp.com/support.

clean the TMA

Clean the TMA with a dry, soft cloth. If necessary, lightly spray the cloth with glass cleaner and wipe the TMA.

clean and maintain the ADF

The ADF requires periodic cleaning depending on the amount of use and the type of media that is fed through it. Use an HP ADF cleaning cloth to clean the ADF when vertical streaks appear in images scanned by using the ADF, when

image92
