HP L7580 ADF - Pulls sheets halfway then tries to shut down

My HP L7580 ADF has started malfunctioning. When I place pages in it (or even just one page), it will pull the first page part of the way and then makes a loud noise and the LCD screen says "Scanner Failure unable to print, scan or copy." then prompts me to press ok. I press "OK" and it says "Shutting Down" and the power button just blinks on and off and it won't do anything else. It doesn't actually shut down. I have to unplug it from the wall to get it to power up again. It prints fine from the computer,and faxes/scans/copies from the glass just fine, but if I try to use the ADF to scan/fax/copy it does the whole shut-down routine. It's no longer under warranty. What do I do?

    My HP L7580's document feeder is also jamming. It only pulls the paper halfway through. It will no longer get any pages all the way through.

    exact same problem started this week. Hope someone find a solution., I really like this printer!!

    I've had this problem for ages...I even got HP to replace the unit twice when I first bought it... now their warranty is out of date so I have to use my extended warranty to replace it. The printer is great and the scanner works fine but for $400+ I'd expect the ADF to work... In my mind this is a manufaturing defect...I can;t believe I've been unlucky enough to get 3 lemons!

    doc moves most of the way to the printhead then reads "jam" leave the paper in there and press 'ok' and viola! the sorry bastard will advance the paper through with no problems. i suspect a poorly designed firmware which can't deal with the unecessarily fast initial feed of the paper past the sensor flags. hp has created yet another turd.

    Same problem with faxing with ADF going half way through. The initial feed pulls in the paper fine-actually it leaves marks on the paper from pulling it so hard but then stops and gets a jam about half way through. We tried leaving the paper in and pressing OK when the "original jam error" came up but just get the jam again without the paper advancing. We have tried all the troubleshooting methods with NO solution. It doesn't make sense why for the price this feature would go bad and there is no way to get to the internal parts easily to fix it yourself. It seems a lot of people have had this problem. Anybody up for a class action law suit?

I have an hp OfficeJet G85. The automatic document feeder won't work about half the time. Is there a way to clean or fix the feeder? Everything else works fine.


Depends on how the ADF is malfunctioning. If it just plain doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a control cable / connector issue.

If it grabs multiple pages at same time, or doesn't want to grab pages at all, you can try using a "cleaning sheet" available for inkjet printers. Most office supply stores will sell these. The cleaning sheet helps to clean the paper path (wheels, idlers, etc). You should also be able to pop open the ADF cover, and remove any paper debris that is present. See owners manual for this procedure though, it is easy to break the cover.

HP Officejet Pro L7580 ADF will not pick up paper. ADF top roller will not lower to grab paper. During process, ADF mechanism clicks as if it is trying to lower top roller, but ADF top roller will not...

You can lift the top of the unit to inspect the rollers. Be careful because the L series the roller can pop off easily and if you're not paying attention to original orientation, can be a pain to put back in.. you press the blueish button to release the pick up assembly. See if any rollers are dusty. If they are, use Isopropyl alcohol (highest % you can find) and a LINT FREE cloth (dryer sheets/coffee filters or something of that nature..) and wipe clean

Hope this helps, I'm honestly doing all this from memory, I used to work for that dept here in Oregon ..

Printer does not fully pull paper...

You probably need to clean the rollers that feed the paper. Check your manual or go to Cannon web site.

We have a HP Scanjet 5500c Scanner and when you try to scan a sheet the image scan all black, do you know why that is happening.

s.gif s.gif

See the item is placed correctly on the scanner glass or in the ADF.Make sure that the item you are trying to scan is placed face down onthe glass, or face up in the ADF. Ifyou are using the ADF, there might be a page on the scanner glass.Raise the ADF unit and remove any pages on the scanner glass. If you are using the ADF, the ADF window might need to be replaced.

If that is okay, Please check this link.
