Misfeed when scanning documents

Whenever I try to scan multiple documents the scanner with stop after about 5 and say there is a misfeed, when there isn't. I don't know if it has to do with the rollers not grabbing the next piece of paper or what. It drives me nuts when I have to scan a huge stack of documents. Do you have any advice?

What you want to try it take a blank paper and on the middle of the page on front put a small ammount of rubbing alcohol on it, then enter the paper into the scanner and hold it so you jam it as it feeds. Then look at the area you placed the alcohol for the presence of some dirt, a blackish smear will normally appear on the paper, Do that 4 or 5 times and that will clean the wheels well. If it helps, then most likely you have just textured the rollers for a short period of time and they should be replaced. But the reason why you want to try that is to be sure the problem is slipping by the roller texture and not the roller drives, ( a clutch or motor). But since it sounds like you give your scanner a workout, the rollers are most likely the problem. Replace all the feed rollers and also look for a pad that presses against the feed roller. Depending on the type of scanner there will be either one roller that barely moves or a rubber pad that is called a skid or ****** pad, what they do is limit or ****** the feed of multiple sheets of paper. I would recommend replacing that , pad or stationary roller, it is important in feeding.

    Umm I forgot to mention. Use alcohol, do not use a soapy cleaner like fantastic etc. The alcohol will actully not really penetrate and shread the paper. A soapy cleaner will break down the paper binders quickly and shread up in the scanner. I just looked at my last post to you. Good lord it blanked out the name of the rollers? It is a reetard pad or roller. LOL. Well some people are over sensative huh?

I have a Sharp Al-2040cs when I turn it on the misfeed indicator is blinking. I checked it there no misfeed paper or piece of paper inside. How can I fix this problem?


The MISFEED Indicator blinks when a MISFEED has occurred. Remove the misfed paper referring to the the description of MISFEED REMOVAL beginning on page 65 of the pdf Manual at:

http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeOffice/PrintersFaxMachines/Manuals/cop_man_AL2030_AL2040CS.pdf

When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.

Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.

If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if this resolves issue.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

How do I add multiple pages to one scanned doucment?


Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!

Misfeed and PDF failure


Thewre could be even a small piece of paper stuck. Try looking even closer, and even open a close the access lids to reset the triggered switch. Even a minute pice of paper in the wrong location can cause a sensor to be triggered and until it is reset it will not work.
