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.

Paper transport works not properly, 3 flashes orange LED

First make sure the printers well connected and the power supply properly plugged.
  • Remove any previously loaded paper.
  • Check out the printers Auto sheet feeder/front feeder for any paper jams and remove manually any visible stuck papers.
  • Turn the printer off and on.This also helps in automatically removing any stuck papers that may not be manually removed.
  • Make sure there is no foreign objects in the Auto sheet feeder.
  • Make sure you load a fair amount of plain papers in the feeder,that is,reduce by half the amount you feed into the feeder.
  • In case the printers rear cover had been removed,fit it properly by pressing it firmly until it fully fits into the rear of the printer.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

Canon MP530, would only print half of a page then quit and give me error message 5700. I would pull the paper out and shut down and would start and print only half of a page and stop. I would take out...

This error is referring to the ASF assy (Assembly frame which means the paper feed section)
This paper sheet feeder assy is a extremley complicated piece and is therefore not really repairable. You will need to take the machine to a canon repairer for a new assy sheet feeder to be fitted. It takes a trained engineer about 2-1/2 hours to fit one as the whole machine has to come apart and the new feeder has to be aligned while fitting. Its a job i always hate having to do. You dont have any other options i am afraid. Srri to bring you such bad news.

When try to print, paper will feed into the printer half way, then I get a message asking me to please load paper. I then remove the paper and try it again and it happens all over again. It almost seems...

There could be something blocking the feeder.
1.Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. 2.Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris. 3.If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Anydebris should just freely roll out from the feeder. 4.If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. 5.Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause thiserror or problem. 6.If cartridge area is clear, close the cover. 7.Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it. 8.When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try toprint again.

My Canon MF3240 picks up too much paper and causes a paper jam every time I print.

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.

Document jam

There is a sensor in the document feeder that most likely is stuck on the frame or the spring fell off and is not resetting. Have you taken a minela folder and run it through the feeder to be sure there is not a small fragmant of paper on the sensors? If you havent try that, or a piece of paper folded in half twice and keep sliding it though the feeder.
You would have to take the feeder apart to get the sensor set, That is best accomplished by taking the back cover off, then the left side cover, ( looking from the front) and disconnecting the feedder connectors, then removing it from the scanner.

Jam in the document feeder

I think I found my answer. You don't have to un do any screws. Lift up the cover to the automatic feeder. You will see a spring on the side of the mechanism towards the front; remove the spring; that will allow you to lift up the little arm the spring was attached to and remove the roller or bar and the light blue/green plate just under it. Then you will be able to see the jammed paper, which which I was able to carefully pull out with a pair of tweezers. Some was under rubber rollers, but when I pulled the paper sideways it slipped out. Now it works!
