When we feed documents through the document feeder the copies come out blurred. We do not have that problem when we place the documents directly on the glass plate.

When paper is fed through the document feeder it scans the whole page on a little strip of glass about an inch wide and about 12 inches long. That strip has dirt on it that needs cleaned off. Lay the bad copy on the glass (face up) and you can line it up with that little glass and see where the lines match up. Clean that little glass with alcohol or glass cleaner and it will be fixed :)

When pages come out of the copier the image is printed crooked. The paper comes out straight, so feed is correct. Image is just crooked? Why?


Does this happen when you using the document feeder?? Try placing the original document on the big glass see what happens might be you document feeder needs to be adjusted or the original document is hitting a obstruction in the path as it is being scanned. Does it print OK? Vise copy?

Copies run through feeder distorted


Document feeder Paper feed rollers should be cleaned with alcohol, blow out the document feed area with compressed air (computer duster), check feeder for bits of paper, post it notes, and signature flags. Clean glass, check for sticky areas on the glass.

Hope this is of some help.

AL-1531 blank copies at 100%


I believe the document feeder is just hesitating some, try pushing the original as soon as it starts trying to feed. It won't fix it, but you'll know where your trouble is.
good luck

Lines appear when making a copy using document feeder tray


If the lines are vertical (in the direction the ADF feeds, 11in long for 8 1/2 by 11) You can try cleaning the glass the scanner uses when it's using the document feeder. Pull up the top left part of the printer where the documents feed, there's a little rib in the middle of the side to help you do this, then simply pull up the assembly underneath with all the rollers in it, you should see about an inch of glass underneath and a centimeter long strip of white plastic on the assembly (this serves as the white background when feeding slimmer papers) Clean them both. I'd recomend any glass cleaner, just don't spray it in there, spray it onto a cloth.

Blurry bottom 2 inches of copy from IR 1600


Take a Normal,reduction and an enlarged copy(at any ratio) of a Newspaper in different size papers. Then check whether the blurred position is at the same position or not.If it is at the same position, check scanner for its free movement, there may be an obstacle which will not allow the scanner to move freely resulting in blurred copy. or else let me know.

Scanning


Our problem is not solved. It was suggested the feeder needed cleaning or wasn't working. The feeder works as we make copies of documents. If one is scanning can you feed the document or can you only scan one page at a time by placing it on the window?
