The invalid range is determined by the destination encoding. Use:  '-t  

               When  this  option  is  given, Unicode characters that  
cannot be
               represented in the target encoding are replaced  with   
a  place-
               holder  string  that is constructed from the given  
               applied to the Unicode code point. The formatstring   
must  be  a
               format  string  in  the same format as for the printf  
command or
               the printf() function, taking either no argument or  
exactly  one
               unsigned integer argument.

Use that option: --unicode-subst='<UNKNOWN_CHARACTER>' to set the  
replacement string.
( assuming unicode input )
