Open the document feeder and look for an obstruction.

Clean the roller and pad with isopropyl alcohol.

Also look for a switch actuator trapped down or knocked off.

Fax on Lexmark 901 pro not feeding


Does it also jam when you're just copying or scanning? Try to check if the scanner is closed all the way down. The cover needs to be closed all the way down for the paper to flow properly from the ADF to the exit tray.

Copy off glass copy is good. copy from ADF copy is blurry


The problem is either dirty glass for the ADF which you can clean, or the ADF cannot feed the paper you are trying to scan through accurately. Most smaller all in one printers use the same scanner element for both the ADF and flat glass scanning so the fact that glass scanning is fine points to the two problems listed above.

Brother 8840D ADF not working. The flat bed scanner runs instead for fax or copy. Displays Doc Cover Open message


Open ADF and close again. There must be tab in the ADF which is not pressing a microswitch located in the lower part of the ADF. IF you can locate it, try pressing it manually.

Hello, I have an HP OfficeJet 7310 all-in-one print/scanner/fax etc. I purchased about two years ago but don't use very often. Yesterday while I was trying to send a fax I received a loud winding-up...


I have same problem! The copy/scan function would feed the orginal from the ADF halfway and instead of making a normal loud feeding noise it made a horriable alarming sound and displayed an error message. To fix it: I waited a day or two and bang the top of the feeder cover with normal force while the original is feeding. It appeared the problem is resolved. I have no idea what the problem is, however I think if this work for few months at a time is fine by me.

Will not copy


If the paper isn't feeding in the ADF (automatic document feeder - upper paper feeder) then the ADF roller assembly will need to be replaced. Try a copy on the flat glass area. If it work, then it's the ADF, If not then the upper scanner assembly with have to be replaced.
