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.

When making photocopies, the automatic top paper feeder is grabbing more than one page at a time. How do we fix it?


Clean all the rollers in the ADF with a damp lint free cloth. Depending on wear, they may need to be changed, but try cleaning first. Where the paper stack rests there will be either a pad or roller, make sure it is clean too.

Multiple pages feed when printing on hp 7410


  • If the automatic document feeder (ADF) does not pick up any pages at all, the rollers inside the automatic document feeder need to be cleaned.
  • If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.
SolutionLoad one or two sheets of unused plain white full-size paper into the document feeder tray, and then press Start Copy Black to pull the pages through the automatic document feeder. The plain paper releases and absorbs residue from the rollers and separator pad.note.pngNOTE:If the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, try cleaning the front roller. Wipe the roller with a soft lint-free cloth dampened with distilled water. If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, clean the rollers and separator pad manually. Follow the procedures below to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder, access the pick assembly inside the automatic document feeder, clean the rollers or separator pad, and then reattach the face plate.

Canon ip1800 is experiencing paper jam.whener tries to print, cannot feed the paper properly


Sometimes a printer just needs some cleaning.

Remove the jammed paper following the procedure below. (1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the Paper Output Slot, whichever is easier.If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, turn the printer off, open the Front Cover, and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the printer. After removing all paper, close the Front Cover and turn it back on.If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically. (2) Reload the paper in the printer, and press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer. If you turned off the printer in step 1, all print jobs in queue are canceled. Reprint if necessary.
Make sure to clean the paper feed rollers if paper is not fed properly. Cleaning the Paper Feed Roller of the Auto Sheet Feeder consumes it, so perform this only when necessary. 1. Make sure that the printer is turned on, and then remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder. 2. Open the Printer Properties dialog box. 3. Click the Maintenance tab and then Roller Cleaning. 4. Confirm the message, and then click OK.The Paper Feed Rollers will rotate as they clean. 5. When the message appears, load three or more sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the left. 6. Confirm the displayed message and click OK.The paper that is loaded in the printer will feed through the printer and be ejected. 7. When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK. If this procedure does not solve the problem, clean the surface of the roller with applying a slightly moisten cotton swab with water to wipe off dust or stain.
If the problem still persists, contact a Canon service representative.

Hello can you assist I can not figure out why the CX8310 Epson printer won't allow me to feed paper into it.


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right edge, behind the tabs, then slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure the paper is not in front of the feeder guard.
  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.
  • Don't load too many sheets at once (up to 20 sheets of photo paper, 80 sheets of Premium Bright White paper, or 100 sheets of plain paper).

    Paper not feeding properly


    Follow these steps to reload paper:

    1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

    2. Fan the stack to make sure the sheets are separated.

    3. Open the paper support and pull up the extension.

    4. Extend the output tray.

    5. Flip the feeder guard forward. Squeeze the edge guide and slide it left.

      pm_paperload_218_er.gif

    6. Insert paper, printable side up and short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab.

      pm_paperload_219_er.gif

      You can load up to 100 sheets of 20 lb plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper.

    7. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly.

      pm_paperload_220_er.gif

      Follow these guidelines when loading paper:

      • Do not load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.

      • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

      • If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

      • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin.

      • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

      • Load the printable side face-up. It's often brighter or whiter than the other side.

      • Load letterhead or preprinted paper top edge first.

      • If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer sheets.

      • If you're using special paper, check the package for special loading instructions.
    Follow these steps to reload paper in the Automatic Document Feeder:

    1. Remove the paper and make sure it's not curled or wrinkled.

    2. Tap the originals on a flat surface to even the edges.

    3. Move the edge guides outward.

      pm_paperload_223_er.gif

    4. Insert the originals face-up. You can load up to 30 letter-size sheets at a time. If you load legal-size sheets, insert only 10 sheets at a time. Make sure the originals are not creased or folded and do not have tape, staples, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.

    5. Slide the edge guides against the originals.

    Automatic Paper feed


    Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.
