Canon MP530 ADF

Feeds paper half way and then stops

Posted by on

  • Gadgedora Feb 24, 2009

    I have an MP530 which simply won't load from the ADF. I cannot see anything physically wrong with it, and it won't load no matter which type of paper/size/thickness I use. It makes its normal whirring and clicking sounds as if it is attempting to load, but then doesn't feed it in, not even a millimeter.
    Hope anyone can help please.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon MP530, would only print half of a page then quit and give me error message 5700. I would pull the paper out and shut down and would start and print only half of a page and stop. I would take out...


This error is referring to the ASF assy (Assembly frame which means the paper feed section)
This paper sheet feeder assy is a extremley complicated piece and is therefore not really repairable. You will need to take the machine to a canon repairer for a new assy sheet feeder to be fitted. It takes a trained engineer about 2-1/2 hours to fit one as the whole machine has to come apart and the new feeder has to be aligned while fitting. Its a job i always hate having to do. You dont have any other options i am afraid. Srri to bring you such bad news.

Documents will not feed from the ADF


Is there a more permanent fix in the meantime? I'm just tired of fiddling each time that I use the ADF

My CANON PIXMA MP530 is showing the alarm, "Document in ADF."


Open the top cover of the ADF and look for a rectangular hole with a lever stuck down. That lever should only go down when a paper is placed in the feeder, and sometimes they get stuck in the down position. A bent paper clip might help you lift it gently...

Document in adf


It's indicating that the sensor in the top of the scanner has been triggered.

Try opening the document feeder tray on top of the printer lid and them gently open the grey cover that covers the scanner workings.

You will probably find some paper or something holding the sensor in the "document loaded" position

Canon PC980 ADF PROBLEM


not really familiar with this model, however, you should be able to open the cover (slightly) where the paper feeds in and you will see some rubber rollers (likely top and bottom), try cleaning these with a rag dampened with some alcohol (preferably), or water, and turning gently (do not force). If you use water, dry them afterward

Canon MP530 shows paper jam, when paper is not jammed.


First – diagnose your problem. In my case the first roller which feeds the paper through the ADF (under small black flip up cover on top) was not turning. Hence no paper advance and error claimed a paper jam (it wasn’t – just a failure to advance paper)
 
The cause turned out to be a stuck gear turning that silver rod at the top. A bit of household oil has worked a charm.
 
To get at the gear, unhinge the ADF cover retaining tie (black flexible plastic stopping it opening all the way). Just lift it up and roll over towards printer.
Then unscrew one screw next to that tie. Gently prise plastic cover off by lifting up from left hand side (near that black tie). It should rotate off. Keep power on and fingers out.
 
Put a few drops of oil on top gear. Place paper in ADF and attempt a batch scan operation. Gears should turn and lubricate parts. Repeat.  Once working, replace cover, screw and tie.
 
Mine had seized months ago and is now working fine. Hope yours does too.
 
P.S. Get a Continuous Ink System (as sold on eBay) - awesome for an ink guzzler...
