The majority of paper jams are caused by obstructions like insects or torn bits of paper, staples etc. Clean the paper path, rollers etc. If the ADF jams continuously, lift the lid and check if the removable paper guide is placed correctly to feed the output tray. Had both these issues today, and this 5590 now works 100%.

The belt inside my scanjet 4200c has come off. How do I reattach it? I have opened the scanner. It looks to be relatively easy but I don't know how to attach the belt to the motor etc


Instructions

1 Lift the hatch on the feed tray and pull up the large green tab to the left of the roller. Remove any jammed or torn paper from under the roller and around the feed tray.
2 Pull the input feed tray out of the automatic document feeder. Grasp the feed tray with both hands and pull it straight out.
3 Check the interior of the automatic document feeder for jammed paper. Remove any jammed paper, then reinsert the feed tray into the automatic document feeder. Push down the feeder cover until you hear a click.

Am unable to use the feeder tray - it keeps saying paper jam. There is no jam -- something seems to be blocking the mobility of the paper. I have it on "office" use and the regular scan works one...

The scanner keeps jamming. i try to scan form the document feeder &the papers keep getting stuck. It will not complete a scan!what do i do?


In summary: * Very unintuitive, convoluted and unpleasant to use (same on Win2K as XP) - sometimes the SW hangs during scan and needs a reboot - sometimes the SW crashes with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot - sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf
Advantages: I cannot see any advantages with this product
Disadvantages: Software is convoluted and unreliable, paper jams are difficult to clear

function showHideReviewText( sType ) { if ( sType == 'more' ) { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('less'); }; } else { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('more'); }; } } ...with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot
- sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf every page is blank
- very occasionally it scans a document properly
*If the sheet-feeder jams is says to refer to the documentation to clear it, which doesn't exist. There is no way to clear the jam except to pull hard & hope. No levers to release it like one would expect.
*Frequently has error ...
...cycled to work again.

Everything has to be started by pressing a button on an application called "HP Director". There are 4 apps started from this:
1) Scan Picture
2) Scan Document
3) Make Copies
4) View & Print
also Help
also Settings (which are used in conjunction with settings found in (1) and (2)!)
- Each application has to be exited to return to "HP Director"
its a worst scanner
and prone to jamming problem

My Documate 152 is saying paper jam but no paper jam


E08 error message which indicates papert jam is caused by lose or mis-alligned input paper tray (automatic document feeder).
Resolve issue by powering off the scanner, opening the paper path section, removing the adf, and then re-seating the adf.

Scanner will not load from top feeder. Error says paper jam but no paper is jammed into the feeder.


the rollers may be broken, this would give the appearance of the paper jam to the printer
sorry not sure how to fix this one

ADF paper jam, when there is none


If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.

E9 code


E9 code means there is a paper jam.

Clearing Paper Jams
If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic
Document Feeder, a warning dialog box opens after a few
moments.
To clear a paper jam:
1. Press the ADF cover release on the top-left of the scanner
body to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
To reduce the number of paper jams, smooth and straighten the
paper before scanning and adjust the guides to the paper size.

This should help. Please let me know if it does. Thank you, Binary Bob

This sounds like a sensor failure - is it under warranty?
