Try opening the lid where the pages are fed in. On the top or underside of keyboard you will see a square rubber pad. Clean this with a rag and some rubbing alcohol. Also clean all rubber rollers under there as well. This should take care of that problem John

Cannot print screen shows ADF.what does this mean?


ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder and it means the device mounted on top of your pixma that allows multiple pages to be scanned/copied/faxed one at a time automatically.

Now why does it not print? The machine "believes" some document is inserted in the ADF in order to be scanned/copied/faxed, and wants that operation to be completed before it accept any print job. Please remove, if present, any paper from the ADF. Maybe its only some small piece of broken paper or even dust on the sensor in the ADF.

Good luck!

How do I scan more than one page at a time

Hi there,
To scan more than one page at a time you can use ADF.
The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can scan multiple pages, including duplex pages. When using the ADF:
* Load the document into the ADF faceup, short edge first.
* Load up to 50 sheets of plain paper into the ADF input tray.
*Scan sizes from 148 x 210 mm (5.8 x 8.3 in.) to 215.9 to 355.6mm (8.5 x 14 in.).
* Scan documents with mixed page sizes (letter and legal).
*Scan media weights from 52 to 120 g/m2 (14 to 32 lb ).
* Do not load post cards, photos, small items, transparency, photo paper or the thin media (such as magazine clippings) into the ADF. Place these items on the scanner glass.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

Ricoh 1027 ADF grabs multiple pages causing adf jam

you need to replace the lower of 3 rollers in the ADF (sep roller), for a temp fix you can clean this roller with wd40 as it will soften the rubber and get it to "grip". these rollers (lower of three) are always the first to go "bald on any mnf copier in the ADF and Drawers causing multiple feeding. they are used to allow one page at a time as they either turn backwards or offer torque (resistance) to lower pages

Faxing multiple pages


Faxing using the scanner glass, it would ONLY allow you to do it one at a time. You can Use the Automatic DOcument Feeder on the TOP part of your printer. load all those pages and try to do the faxing. That should work.

Please, let me know if the issue is resolve.

Thank you so much.
