    Hi-

    I previously scanned 4 photos without Picassa today. I have Photoshop on my PC. I simply scanned it to my PC and there it was. For some reason it is not feeding or doing anything this time. Weird....

    HI,

    Wanted to let you know the cable from the computer to the scanner was ever so slightly disconnected/ajar probably from when I put the flash drive in right next to it.
    Thanks anyway!

    Hi Dan,

    It was something really simple. The connection between my computer and the scanner had come loose. Once I secured it, the scanner worked just fine. Thanks for your response however!

    You have to set the program to scan from the ADF or the flatbed scanner.

It won't scan unless you have a program like picasso running on your computer to accept the scan. On the Canon you choose where you want the scanned image to go and if you choose the computer you need a program running to store or adjust the scanned image.

What does document in ADF mean


Hello, Thanks for using Fixya today.
ADF is auto document feeder, used to feed a document into a scanner or printer. The error is associated when there is a document or paper jam at the document feeder, or paper trail.
This would happen mostly on scanners and all in one printers after witch a document is left in the feeder or there was a paper jam occurrence. We hope this answers your questions today?
Please contact us again if you still have a issue, or need help with anything else.
Thanks for using Fixya.com

Document in ADF error, however there are no


I'm having the very same problem. No paper was ever stuck and the first time I tried to scan a document by laying it on the glass, not even through the feeder and it did this, and just like with you now it won't even print. Apparently this happens a Lot. I sure wish I would have seen these issues before I bought it! I wish I could help you out, but at least you know you're not alone.

How to print using ADF feeder?


You take the paper with face to print Up and the top of the paper towards the interior of the ADF. You can also put a stack of papers. When you press the copy/scan command from the machine console or the computer, the automatic document feeder starts.

My canon MP830 produces a thin vertical black line on documents fed through the document feeder to be copied or faxed. This only happens using the document feeder.


The expert told me to run a porous piece of paper through the adf 10 to 15 times. I used a piece of Avery textured paper for notecards that I had. The problem was solved after about 5 runs through.

Document in adf


It's indicating that the sensor in the top of the scanner has been triggered.

Try opening the document feeder tray on top of the printer lid and them gently open the grey cover that covers the scanner workings.

You will probably find some paper or something holding the sensor in the "document loaded" position
