If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If youu don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it

My printer is a Canon Pixma MX340 it is showing a error Document in ADF Press [ok] but after pressing ok another error reads Close the feeder cover [ok] eject the document


I had the exact same problem. The Alarm light was always on and the screen said "Document in ADF. When I pressed "OK" it would read "Eject the document". Even after I placed paper in the ADF and the paper would feed the document through it, the error and the Alarm light was still there. I found the solution, Lift the cover to expose the flat bed scanner glass. Under the cover, there is a long white bar with two white tabs perpendicular to the white bar. One of the tabs was retracted. Pull on the tab until it is fully extended. The alarm turns off and there is no longer the error. Simple solution to a damn annoying issue.

Lines on Outgoing Faxes and Copies from Feeder Is there a way to clean the doc feeder scanner? I have a big line going down the center of the page when I copy or fax from there. Thanks!


Hello,

If you lift the top of the unit so that you can see the scanner glass and clean the surface on the left side and the very end of the scanner you should be ok. The sheet feeder runs the pages through the feeder and down to the glass at the end then back to the feeder and out to the stack of pages. If you try to scan anything with wet ink, highlighter, marker, etc some may come off on the glass and cause the lines to appear. Just use windows on a paper towel, not sprayed on the unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

The automatic-feeder does not work. Everytime I


There is a small power cable that connects the main printer to the sheetfeeder. It is loose or unplugged.
Look on the back side of the Automatic Feeder, near the top.
Plug it in ... it will work.

When faxing does paper face uup or down


You load the originals print side uo on the document feeder tray or print side down on the glass.
To send a single page fax you can either load the original on document feeder tray or on the glass; to send a multi-page fax you must use the document feeder tray.

The position of the paper is the same either you copy, fax or scan.
All this is clearly explained in the user's manual, that you should read and you can download from HP support pages for you printer:

Priner wont feed


I will recommend that you put your printer power off for 2 seconds and remove the tray again and reset it back accordingly and put the power on again and try to fax. Make sure you turn. Let me know how it went.

Faxing multiple pages


Hi,

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.
