Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Why would you need to close/open the cover on the Canon printer/scanner? in order to place a sheet of an original face-down on the printer?
You may have to press OK on the printer, to allow the printer to know when to resume scanning - esp. if this is a multi-page scan.
