Try updating the firmware of your printer: http://bit.ly/PqTjBl

Also, make sure that you here a beep or the printer says document loaded when you insert a document in the ADF.

Check the paper flag sensor and make sure it is not missing or misaligned (refer to your printer manual for its location.) If error persists, you’ll need to take your printer in for repair. If the paper wrinkles on the end, you probably have a bad paper out assembly. You might try to clean the inside (especially the rear rollers) and replace the paper. If the paper still wrinkles, the paper out assembly is most likely bad. Sometimes a bad fuser can cause the same problem so don't rule this out.

I have a epson 545 all in one printer and it says it has a paper jam but there is no paper in it


I FIXED IT!

My wife was scanning a ton of old photographs, flipping the lid repeatedly, when the printer started acting flaky, and today it wouldn't run at all. It was the dreaded "ADF Jam" error. The paper feed motor ran at startup, but the ADF feed motor didn't (CLUE). Well, I took it apart, checked all the crevices for paper, then started disassembling. When I got down to the ADF, I started checking wires from the ADF into the control unit .... found one of the motor wires snapped. Soldered in a patch wire, and it works.

Most of the wires are reasonably sturdy, but the wires for the ADF feed motor are pretty thin and brittle. The red and black pair plug into a board where the data cable comes in; the panel slides off rearward after you take out one screw. Several plugs go up to the ADF.

Lexmark Pro901 When scanning from document feed the machine seems to scan only a part of the page whilst cutting out the information at the bottom of the page.


Make sure to set the correct paper size when scanning from the ADF. If you're scanning a legal size document, set the paper size to legal.

If it doesn't work, try to reset the printer back to its factory settings:

1 From the home screen, touch Setup (wrench icon), and then touch Use Factory Defaults.
2 Touch Yes.
3 When prompted to set the initial settings of your printer, make your selections using the touch screen.

ADF wont feed the paper through the printer


You can load up to 30 sheets of plain paper in the Artisan 800 ADF. If the ADF doesn't feed the paper, check the following.

1. Make sure that you are loading plain paper only without a holes. 3-hole punched paper is not supported by this printer.

2. Load paper not exceed 30 sheets.

3. Open the ADF and check for any jammed paper or foreign object that is blocking the paper feeding path.

4. Check if the BIG GREEN ADF indicator is lit when you load paper in the ADF.

If the issue persists, your printer will require service. You can contact the Epson for warranty if your printer still under warranty. If your warranty expires, look for an a service center that can repair your printer.

I have a message on screen sayng " ADF Jam" there is no paper jamming the system. I cannot make this message go away, and so i cnnot use any other function of the printer. How might I clear...


Hi travlynn2,

  1. The ADF
    unit is the grey paper tray located on the top of the scanner unit.
    Check the following points if it does not feed paper, or you receive an "ADF jam" error message:


  2. Check the position of the ADF document guide:


    1. Lift up the ADF unit. Locate the document guide on the underside, as shown here:


    2. The document guide should be tucked in behind the grey plastic casing, but a paper jam can push it out of position. Figure 8 below shows the correct (1) and incorrect (2) positions:


    3. If your document guide looks like example (2)
      on the right, lift it out on the right-hand side. Tuck it in behind the
      grey section, so that it matches the example on the left (1).




    1. Close the scanner unit.


    2. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    3. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.


  3. Check the ADF edge guides:




    1. The adjustable paper tray edge guides must be set to the correct paper size for the paper you are loading. Otherwise, the paper may skew, misfeed and/or jam.



    2. Slide the edge guides to enclose the loaded
      paper (in the direction of the yellow arrows below), without causing it
      to bunch or crease. The paper should be aligned with the relevant paper size marker:

      Figure 9. The ADF edge guides.


  4. Check the ADF unit feed rollers:


    1. Open the cover of the ADF by pulling up the grey lip, as shown below:


    2. Check thoroughly for fragments of paper and foreign objects. Take care not to tear any jammed paper when you remove it.


    3. Use the green gear (circled in yellow below) to turn the paper feed rollers and feed through jammed paper:



    4. Paper dust or foreign material on the rollers may cause paper to misfeed. Clean these parts with a damp, well-wrung cloth:


      1. The upper paper pickup rollers (circled in red, above top left). You can turn these by hand.



      2. The lower paper pickup rollers. These will rotate as you turn the green gear (circled in yellow above). See the inset for a close-up of the lower rollers.


    5. When complete, close all the covers.


    6. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    7. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.



  5. Check that the ADF unit sensors are not obstructed.




    1. Open the cover of the ADF unit.



    2. Look at Figure 12 below. Check the position of the black plastic parts (the actuators) circled in red.



    3. If the black plastic actuators do not stick out from the ADF cover, they may have been pushed out of position by a paper misfeed and be obscuring the ADF sensors. Tap the back of the ADF unit firmly to release the actuators.


    4. When complete, close all the covers. Check and test the printer as explained in Step 6.d.vi.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Paper feed only works manual


I think you have a paper jam or some other tiny objects like a paper clip or the like blocking the ADF(Automatic Document Feeder) roller. You should open your ADF and check for anything obstructing the roller. If you see something just pull it off close the ADF and turn on the printer.

Good luck,
Sai.

Paper wont feed propaly


Something probably fell into that tiny pinch of an area where the paper goes. I have found everything from a Tostito crumb to a chip of drywall blocking my paper feed. Flip your machine over, poke it if you have to, and shake it around til the little bugger falls out.
