ARDF is a two pass system meaning it flips the paper to make a two sided original scan.
SPDF is single pass meaning there is a component in the feeder that reads the second side in a single pass, thus speeding the original scan, highly recomended if you do a lot of scans.

Aficio 1035 ARDF cannot pick papers most likely when they are over 4 sheets

Clean the takeup roller and feed belt with a damp rad (water). If that doesn't help, you man need to replace the roller, belt, seperator belt and possibly the sep roller torque limiter.

E6 error On a Ricoh ft4022 copied paper doesn't throughly comes out

It can be some of this because you give us only the firs digit you should press "." for to see the two other digits which can be as follow:

E620 Main board – ARDF communication error
E621 Main board – Sorter communication error
E623 Main board – Paper tray unit communication error

For start you can see do the sorter or the ADF are good connected
It has two cables one is white and other is black see do they are good connected or it can be broken on some place of the cable, special the black because is optical cable.
also see do the paper tray is good entered in the machine if all this up mentioned are good then is a problem with the main board

Line on page using ARDF

Good news!! This should be an easy fix.

If the line appears only when you are using the doc feeder, and it looks like a straight line that you have drawn with a ruller, then it is on the glass. Not the large glass where the copy lays, but the narrow glass. Make a copy using the ARDF, paying close attention to it's orientation (which side is up and which is down). Then, take the copy you made and lay it next to the narrow **** glass in exactly the same direction as it went through the feeder. Wherever your line is, there is something on the glass in that spot. Take your thumb and rub with a good bit of pressure in this spot. You might not see anything, but trust me, there is something there. It might be as small and transparent as a spot of ink. A flashlight will help. You might also try using rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth to clean it. Hope some of this helps,

Ricoh Aficio 1035 ARDF is not duplexing, why?

Call a technician, seems like the original is not making the second scan pass and thus displaying a mis-feed, cut also be a small piece of paper in the feeder bloacking a sensor, bad sensor or worn feed tires.
