Question about Epson WorkForce 545 Wireless All-In-One Color Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

ADF error-says to clear paper jam and restart there is no paper jam.

The printer will not function when it is turned on it indicates ADF error and I get no results from trying to clear a paper jam which does not exist. I unplugged it and plugged it back in numerous times it did work twice that way. There are three blinking green lights on, wifi and auto answer and the error message. It will not scan or print or copy-it is useless. I am sure it must be a sensor or stuck gear is there any way to work around this-the ADF has not worked in a long time I do not know why it is now doing this too.

If you are 100% positive there is no left over paper jammed, then most likely your paper feeder needs to be lubricated.

    Well I think I found the problem and almost had it fixed there was a piece not attached right in the feeder and I almost had it back but the springs unhooked themselves I can't see any way to fix that on to a new printer I guess no ADF feeder on the new one!

I have a message on screen sayng " ADF Jam" there is no paper jamming the system. I cannot make this message go away, and so i cnnot use any other function of the printer. How might I clear...


Hi travlynn2,

  1. The ADF
    unit is the grey paper tray located on the top of the scanner unit.
    Check the following points if it does not feed paper, or you receive an "ADF jam" error message:


  2. Check the position of the ADF document guide:


    1. Lift up the ADF unit. Locate the document guide on the underside, as shown here:


    2. The document guide should be tucked in behind the grey plastic casing, but a paper jam can push it out of position. Figure 8 below shows the correct (1) and incorrect (2) positions:


    3. If your document guide looks like example (2)
      on the right, lift it out on the right-hand side. Tuck it in behind the
      grey section, so that it matches the example on the left (1).




    1. Close the scanner unit.


    2. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    3. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.


  3. Check the ADF edge guides:




    1. The adjustable paper tray edge guides must be set to the correct paper size for the paper you are loading. Otherwise, the paper may skew, misfeed and/or jam.



    2. Slide the edge guides to enclose the loaded
      paper (in the direction of the yellow arrows below), without causing it
      to bunch or crease. The paper should be aligned with the relevant paper size marker:

      Figure 9. The ADF edge guides.


  4. Check the ADF unit feed rollers:


    1. Open the cover of the ADF by pulling up the grey lip, as shown below:


    2. Check thoroughly for fragments of paper and foreign objects. Take care not to tear any jammed paper when you remove it.


    3. Use the green gear (circled in yellow below) to turn the paper feed rollers and feed through jammed paper:



    4. Paper dust or foreign material on the rollers may cause paper to misfeed. Clean these parts with a damp, well-wrung cloth:


      1. The upper paper pickup rollers (circled in red, above top left). You can turn these by hand.



      2. The lower paper pickup rollers. These will rotate as you turn the green gear (circled in yellow above). See the inset for a close-up of the lower rollers.


    5. When complete, close all the covers.


    6. If the printer is displaying "ADF Jam, press start to continue", press the B/W Start button to clear the error:


    7. Test the printer by scanning or faxing via the ADF unit.



  5. Check that the ADF unit sensors are not obstructed.




    1. Open the cover of the ADF unit.



    2. Look at Figure 12 below. Check the position of the black plastic parts (the actuators) circled in red.



    3. If the black plastic actuators do not stick out from the ADF cover, they may have been pushed out of position by a paper misfeed and be obscuring the ADF sensors. Tap the back of the ADF unit firmly to release the actuators.


    4. When complete, close all the covers. Check and test the printer as explained in Step 6.d.vi.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Cannon Pixma MX320 all in one printer and I cant get it to stop saying document in ADF


Issue: ERROR LCD: DOCUMENT IN ADF
Solution: Remove foreign object from the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) - MX310
Check the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for obstructions
Follow this procedure to check the ADF for obstructions. You do not need to turn off the power when clearing document jams.
Document jams in the ADF (Document Tray)
  1. Press <Stop/Reset>.

  2. If a multi-page document is loaded, remove any documents other than the jammed page from the ADF, then open the Feeder Cover.

    openfeeder.gif


  3. Remove the jammed page from under the roller to the Feeder Cover side.


    remjammed.gif
  4. Pull out the jammed document from the ADF. If the document cannot be easily pulled out, proceed to section Document jams in the ADF (inner side).

    pullout.gif

  5. After removing the jammed document or if a document is not jammed, check the document feed area to make sure there is no foreign material. If you find foreign material, carefully remove it.
  6. Close the Feeder Cover.

    Note : If documents remain in the ADF after pressing the Stop/Reset button during scanning, "DOCUMENT IN ADF" appears on the LCD. Press the OK button so that the remaining document is automatically fed out.

    When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

    Note: The document may not feed properly depending on the media type, or your environment, such as when the temperature and humidity are either too high or too low.
    In this case, reduce the number of document pages to approximately half of the loading capacity. Another alternative is to scan from the platen glass
    .

  • If documents remain in the ADF after pressing <Stop/Reset> during scanning, [Document in ADF] will appear on the LCD. Press <OK> so that the remaining document is automatically fed out.
  • When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

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.

Paper misfeed indicator light continues to blink even after paper


some machines will want all covers to be opened, then closed, for good reset. if you are having jams in the adf, then open all adf covers, and lift the adf upward, if it allows. also, try turning unit off, then back on. some jams only clear that way.
