Hello, Thanks for using Fixya today.
ADF is auto document feeder, used to feed a document into a scanner or printer. The error is associated when there is a document or paper jam at the document feeder, or paper trail.
This would happen mostly on scanners and all in one printers after witch a document is left in the feeder or there was a paper jam occurrence. We hope this answers your questions today?
Please contact us again if you still have a issue, or need help with anything else.

The document feeder has multiple sensors in it. sometimes they hang up and stay stuck out of place. Other sensors might get paper dust on the face of the sensor. If you can open the document cover, locate the sensors and see if any are ajar or the sensor flag fell out of place. Also look to see if a paper is stuck in any of the paper path areas. Not seeing the machine it is hard to say if it fed paper and says check document, if it did, clean the feed wheels with a wet paper towel.
Easy fix. Turn the machine off, on the back side of the document feeder is one beige cable. Unscrew the two screws and disconnect the cable. Turn the machine on with the feeder unplugged, let it come to ready. turn the machine off, connect the beige connector and turn the machine back on, It basically forgot it has a feeder and needs to plug and play without the feeder then to detect it when plugged back in,
Did you make sure the tape is removed inside the Document feeder,or maybe you need to check to see if anything is stuck in the rollers. Open the door (if you have not already done so) to the document feeder and you will see pictures on the inside showing how you can remove and/or change the roller (make sure everything is put back as the picture. Good luck, I hope that is all that is wrong with it.
the document feeder of that unit have its own scanner glass. try opening the document feeder and clean the scanner glass with a lint free cloth that is moist with water and also clean the rollers of the document feeder
One way to unjam that would be to take a stiffer plastic or manila folder and insert it slowly into the document feeder and the slowly push it through the feeder until you dislodge the jammed document out of the bottom of the feeder. That is a common practice in removing jams in the feeder.
