Question about Canon PC980 ADF Document Feeder Assembly

Open Question

Canon 980 adf feeds multiple pages

When feeding more than one original, the ADF frequently feeds multiple pages at once. Is there something I can clean and/or adjust to address this problem? It has been doing this for a long time and I've finally reached the point where I want to do something about it!

    I think I fixed it by cleaning everything that seemed to touch the paper in the feeding area of the ADF.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: adf sporadically pulls fax/ copy through top

Yes,but the most imported part for dubble feeding is the sepatation pad,this white pad is on the lower part of the docfeeder and work with the feed rollers,fist make sure that pad is clean before you replace the rollers,and then replace the pad.

SOURCE: It senses paper loaded into the ADF but doesn't feed

There should be a button with settings on it.....ie: 2 sided, collate, etc. There should be an option to change paper settings.......or just clear the whole menu, and go to default to reset the rollers.

Adf won't feed, just makes loud clicking sounds


Normally ADFs have a top feed roller and a bottom feed which turns in the opposite direction . If the top feed roller is dirty / dusty , the original will not be pulled through , Also if the original is very thick ( > 130 140 gsm )

Document in ADF


None of these worked for me. Here is my FIX:
Open the part containing the rollers. You can see a white plastic part which stop the documents feeded into the adf. Lower this part and insert a page into the adf just a bit further than where it would have stopped from that white stopper. This forces the machine to feed the document and clears the error right away. You only have to do this once and from then mine worked fine.

Auto sheet feeder does not work


Dear;

There might be several reasons:
1- the ADF sensor that detects presence of sheets is defective/broken
2- The ADF itself is not connected/not working
3- you might be inserting the sheets in a way that they are not detected by the sensor: try to move them around.

good luck.

Scanner excludes front page


This is not the only solution, but this might help.

Put a blank page in as the first page and see if all of your documents scan completely.

You may need to clean the ADF. Try the following:

Cleaning the Automatic Document Feeder
You may need to clean the ADF feed mechanism if your
documents do not feed easily into the ADF, or several feed in at the
same time.
To clean the ADF:
1. Dampen a soft cloth with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol
(95%).
2. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body
to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
3. Wipe the feed roller from side to side. Rotate the roller to clean
its entire surface.
4. Wipe the pad from top to bottom. Be careful not to snag the
cloth on the springs on either side of the pad.
5. Close the cover when you’re finished.
NOTE: Please be careful when cleaning the roller. The roller is
designed to rotate in one direction only. As you’re cleaning the
roller, make sure it rotates easily, and continue rotating it in that
direction while wiping it clean. Do NOT force the roller to rotate
in the opposite direction. Forcing the roller to rotate will damage
it, and may cause the scanner to feed pages incorrectly.

Please let me know if this has helped and thank you. Binary Bob
