Your PAPER FEEDER,, (NOT the Automatic DOCUMENT Feeder (ADF)) is probably not at fault. I learned from XEROX, to train customers to simply FAN THE STACK , TWICE, then load the PAPER FEEDER. In manufacture, often CRIMP CUT paper sheets get "WELDED" together. FANNING separates these "welds" in the stack, allowing sheets to slide SEPARATELY...

Clean all the rollers in the ADF with a damp lint free cloth. Depending on wear, they may need to be changed, but try cleaning first. Where the paper stack rests there will be either a pad or roller, make sure it is clean too.

Testimonial: "I cleaned the rollers as indicated above, but in the stack of 7 pages, it grabbed the last 2 pages at once."

Replacing the feed rollers AND the resistance pad beneath them is the only lasting answer. there is a spring that maintains pressure to stop the next sheet from feeding. All these things are wear items. cleaning will last for a short while (should be done often) and can't overcome real wear as opposed to dirt or film buildup. If you need part numbers let me know.

I have an hp OfficeJet G85. The automatic document feeder won't work about half the time. Is there a way to clean or fix the feeder? Everything else works fine.


Depends on how the ADF is malfunctioning. If it just plain doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a control cable / connector issue.

If it grabs multiple pages at same time, or doesn't want to grab pages at all, you can try using a "cleaning sheet" available for inkjet printers. Most office supply stores will sell these. The cleaning sheet helps to clean the paper path (wheels, idlers, etc). You should also be able to pop open the ADF cover, and remove any paper debris that is present. See owners manual for this procedure though, it is easy to break the cover.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.

Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

The printer grabs a bunch of paper at a time when printing

There is some static electricity in some papers that bu=ind them together and will be grabbed several at a time in some instances. Before using paper "Fan" it brrrrp! like a pack of cards to separate the pages. Do this TOP and BOTTOM to release the static, do not use photocopy types of paper
You might also want to consider a better grade of paper, that is static free.

Top feeder jammed

try opening the feed in section and cleaning the rollers with a cloth moistened with alcohol if you have it (primarily for it's quick drying). The rollers can become 'slippery' as they get dirty.

Vertical lines slanted on photocopier

Is it the same result when you place the original on the glass as when you use the Automatic feeder? If copy is straight when you use the glass, then the rollers on the feeder need cleaning (with a damp cloth) -Lift the cover where paper feeds and clean grey rollers,also, and more importantly, clean the darker roller which has a plastic white roller pressed to it with a heavy spring assembly.
If copies are slanted either way you make a copy, make sure to check the paper guides in the tray are snug

Top feeder won't work properly


have you tried cleaning the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder?

try to Load 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.

If the problem persists, clean the rollers and separator pad manually

check the feeder rollers and make sure they are grabbing the page at the right time. Sometimes rollers cna get slick and spin for a moment before picking up the paper. This can cause the timing to be off when the page is fed through.
