I know, I could go on the Internet, find your manual, read it, and learn if this machine has an Automatic Document Feeder. But I am not going to do that. It is a lot more than scanning three pages.
Anyway, IF the machine has an ADF, sort your pages, insert the stack with the TOP of the documents first. The recto of a page must be facing UP The ADF will sense that some action is coming. Press the Scan button on the machine. The connection to the computer must have been established before pressing SCAN. Also, the computer must have some software to open the scanned document.
You can also use the scanning software installed on your computer.

Straight thin line prints on copies from feeder

When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) it is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying! For example see the below picture: -
Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

i had the problem and fixed it. If it is the same problem as me, you need to make sure that you are cleaning the right peice of glass. The main bed is for putting the paper on there and scanning, but if you look to the left there is a small strip of glass that is used for scanning from the lid. There is probably only a very small dot of dirt or ink on the strip of glass. To help find the spot, look and see where the line comes out on the paper and then compair where it comes through the ****.

Hi svengoransso - it's not clear what your problem is! Yes, you can scan slides onto a PC using a variety of scanning methods. I use both a flat bed scanner with slide attachment, and a dedicated slide scanner. Do a google search for 35 mm slide scanner - you will get lots of info. If you have a more specific problem than this, please post a new comment explaining the problem as clearly as possible.

I am unhappy with the light level while scanning slides.

I haven't solved the light problem, but I have found a pretty good program that allows me to enhance my scanned slides-pics into nearly slide-projector quality pics: XnView. I have found that it is best to not try to use the enhance program in PhotoStudio 5.5 (the driver-program for the Canonscan 4400F).

Black vertical lines on faxes sent using auto document feeder

If you lift up the lid on your scanning device you will notice a glass strip about 1 inch thick and then the large area of glass used for flatbed scanning. The 1 inch strip is used for ADF scanning. Because your papper is moving across the glass strip, any dot, smudge or scratch will affect your scanning and cause verticial lines down the page. Sometimes the dot is not visible to the eye. Get some glass cleaner that has alcohol in it and thoroughly clean the glass strip and it should solve your problem. If it turns out to be a scratch on the glass then cleaning won't help.

Facing copying problem from scanning section

Although you didn't specify the scanner model, this solution should work.

If the scanner has a top feeder, open it.

You will see a thin strip of glass, either to the left, or right of the large scanner glass.

There is most likely a small spec of ink, white out, etc on it.

Clean the strip glass with rubbing alcohol and the line should go away.

HP 710 Scan Problem

Cops is correct if you lift up ANY all in one machines, you will notice that there is a 1inch glass and then there is the main glass. When printing, scanning or faxing from the FEEDER it makes the copies from that 1inch glass,  if there is a DOT on that part of the glass it comes out as a line. Why? because the paper is moving that dot then becomes a streak on the paper. To test if it is a dot try doing it from the main glass, there should be no lines ( the paper is not moving!!!!).


sometimes it is very hard to see anything on the 1inch glass, but it's there, the background is black and it may be a black ink or pencil dot. To try and localize it, take the copy with the line and align it with the 1inch glass, look carefully and clean with alcool.
