How to scan documents

Important: it is not possible to scan documents while the scanner is in Wifi mode. So make sure the Wifi mode is deactivated before you start scanning.

To do so:

  • Go the the network settings on your computer/smart device.
  • Make sure you are not connected to the IRIScan network.

To scan documents:

  • Press and hold the power button for 3 seconds to power on the scanner.
  • When you power on the scanner for the first time you need to enter the time/date and the display language. To learn how to do so, consult the corresponding topic.
  • Use the paper guides to align the documents with the scanner.
  • Smoothen the edges of the document before scanning.
  • Aim the edge of the document at the scanner slot.
  • Gently insert a document text facing up into the scanner slot. The scanning starts automatically.
    Tip: align the documents left in the scanner slot.

During scanning the scanning status is displayed on-screen.


  • When you are scanning while the scanner is connected to an external power supply, the scanner enters battery charging mode if no action is taken during 1 minute.
  • If the Instant Preview feature is set to "on", the scanned image is always shortly displayed on-screen before the scanner returns to standby mode.
  • When the memory card is full, the scanner is unable to scan more images and "Full" flashes on the screen for 2 seconds.
