There is a line across the page on all pages scanned through the feeder

If the line runs in the same direction the paper feeds, that being top to bottom not side to side, then there is something blocking the scanner. Most sheet feeders have a seperate glass that is used for scanning and that will result in bad scans from ADF but not if you scan directly from the glass. Clean the ADF glass with a soft cloth slightly damp with window cleaner. Look closely because even small bits of almost invisible goop like post it note glue can be enough to cause this type of image defect when scanning.

The belt inside my scanjet 4200c has come off. How do I reattach it? I have opened the scanner. It looks to be relatively easy but I don't know how to attach the belt to the motor etc


1 Lift the hatch on the feed tray and pull up the large green tab to the left of the roller. Remove any jammed or torn paper from under the roller and around the feed tray.
2 Pull the input feed tray out of the automatic document feeder. Grasp the feed tray with both hands and pull it straight out.
3 Check the interior of the automatic document feeder for jammed paper. Remove any jammed paper, then reinsert the feed tray into the automatic document feeder. Push down the feeder cover until you hear a click.

ADF paper jam, when there is none

If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.

Samsung scx-4521f lines on feeder scan

Hi there,
Youll find that the most common problem with fax machines is that the scanner head that the paper passes over actually gets gritty and dirty. Remember it only takes a spek sitting in there.
Try a damp cloth (not to much Water) and wipe down the sensor reader, It will take a little bit of trial and error but mainly this is the common problem. also try wiping down all the wheels and rollers that the paper runs over as well. Otherwise it could be the recieval end that has a dirty paper feed wheel.
Sometimes it is also common that the internal scanner/sensor reader wears out and needs replacement.
IF this is the case its generally cheaper to buy another fax. Hopefully the above helps for you so you dont have to buy another one

body to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.

This should help. Please let me know if it does. Thank you, Binary Bob

HP ScanJet 5590 automatic feeder not working

Have you tried scanning in the flat bed mode? Does it scan okay? If the image is good, then there is no problem with scan module. Check your page settings. If the page size selected for scanning is smaller than actual size, there can be some peoblems. Try and scan with max size. Check if the sensors are dust/paper free. A small piece of paper (The small round discarded piece from Computer stationery) in the paper sensor can create trouble.
