ADF not working for TWAIN APIs

Hi We are using Twain APIs to build scanning application. But we are facing problem for ADF scanning. When reported that problem to our Twain API vendor he told us that there may be a problem in implementation of Twain drivers for Samsung SCX 5x15 scanner for ADF scanning. Can you please help us in this context? Thanks, Nilesh

Re: ADF not working for TWAIN APIs

You cannot utilize the adf in these 1st generation MFC machines for scanning more than one page at a time. the samsung driver is twain based which is not recognized by windows wia nor will windows detect and list the scanning device. You can scan using the adf but each page scanned is classed as a different session.

Re: ADF not working for TWAIN APIs

I need a little more description. Does the ADF handles the first page, or no page at all? Keep in mind that Samsung designs its own scanning application (SmartThru). Also check that the connection (parallel or USB) is correctly configured on your app.

Samsung CLX-6220-FX vertical lines when scanning and copying

The reason for such lines if they appear only on scans/copies from the automatic document feeder (adf), but not on regular scans and printouts is that there is dirt on the small glass stripe next to the scanner area that is used for scanning from the adf. Just clean that glass stripe and the lines should go away.

Document feeder reporting paper jam when there is nojam

The ADF need to be serviced the sensors are detecting the jam which you can not see.
1. maybe there is a very tine piece of paper inside therefore, service it.
2. there is a cover containing some switches which complete the circuit for the the cover may be it is not fully closed. (close it)
3. position the sensors nicely and properly.
4. replace the PCB for the ADF
5. Disconnect the ADF from the machine main PCB.(repair it), the machine can work without it being connected.

Black line 1 inch wide right side ,when copies are made and faxing

When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying!
Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.
Also note that your machine can scan an image only 8.15 inches wide, regardless of how wide the paper is.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have installed the UE 404090, but cannot scan to my PC. It says no twain compliant found. If I press scan/file on the machine it says select destination _ what can I do there?


Have you at some point installed a second scanning device on the system..

Reason being TWAIN is configured slightly different by every manufacturer to optomise the working of their hardware.

It some cases when you install a TWAIN device for Scanner A this can interfere with Scanner B
Usually its because your trying to use TWAIN(scanner A) on Scanner B

Make sense?

Make sure (if you have installed another scanner device) that you are using the TWAIN software that came with .

You might need to reinstall the entire set up from beginning.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

ADF feed problem after going into the maintenance menu

Are you sure there's not something blocking the ADF.

Open it up and look inside, especially for a switch actuator being held down.

Visit the Ricoh download site and download the latest driver. This will ask you if you wish to overwrite, say yes. Hopefully this will replace the corrupt file.
