NOTE: When the Cover feature is selected, if the number of the document pages exceeds the maximum that the machine can scan, the portion of the document already scanned cannot be printed, copied, or saved. In this situation, cancel the job.

The maximum number of the document pages that can be scanned is 2,000 pages per job. For multiple jobs, the maximum is about 20,000 pages altogether if the document size is A4 (210 mm x 297 mm). This figure should only be used as a guide, since the maximum number of document pages the machine can scan depends on the types, sizes, and direction of the document.
