Check Your Paper

  • The most common issue with the automatic document feeders would be the paper feeding issue. If you are facing the same problem, check your ADF input tray. If you have loaded more than 50 sheets of paper, you need to organize the input tray in the first place.
  • If you have loaded moist or curled paper into the ADF, it may fail to feed those sheets. Moreover, an ADF cannot feed glossy and photo paper at times.
  • Remove the loaded sheets from the ADF.
  • Take 10 sheets of paper and fan the edges. Fan and load the sheets into the ADF input tray. 
  • Check whether the stack completely fits into the input tray. Slide the width guides to fit the paper stack and make sure that the guides are resting gently against the paper and not too tightly.
  • Try to use the ADF again. If it feeds the sheets, the issue is resolved. If your problem is not resolved, proceed with the next step.

Clean the Rollers

  • When dust, paper, and other kinds of debris accumulate on the paper pick rollers, you will face problems with the ADF.
  • To fix the issue, open the ADF cover and clean the rollers with a lint-free damp cloth.
  • Using the same cloth, clean the separator.
  • Finally, close the ADF cover and try to use the ADF again.
  • Now, check whether the issue is resolved.
