Gestetner DSC530 -- Auto Document Feeder

It does not recognize when paper is put in for scanning or copying. Must put individual sheets on the Exposure Glass and copy 1 page at a time. Is there an easy solution for this?

Re: Gestetner DSC530 -- Auto Document Feeder

Normally the cable from the doc feeder has come out. Turn the machine off unplug the cable from the DF to the machine then reinstall it should click turn the machine on then try.

If this doesn't work open the DF cover and check that there are the paper detect fins also when the cover is open then the machine should register a cover open this will tell you if the DF is recognized or not.

Thanks J

I need to change from feeding multiple originals from the top external feed to one sheet copying on the scan bed

If I understand you, just put the original on the glass instead of using the Auto Document Feeder.

Can't work out how to use the multiscan? I press scan and it comes up with multiscan and I put the first piece of paper in but don't seem to get asked for any more sheets and it therefore just scans one...


Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...
Thanks for using FixYa!

Auto feeder not working

Easy fix. Turn the machine off, on the back side of the document feeder is one beige cable. Unscrew the two screws and disconnect the cable. Turn the machine on with the feeder unplugged, let it come to ready. turn the machine off, connect the beige connector and turn the machine back on, It basically forgot it has a feeder and needs to plug and play without the feeder then to detect it when plugged back in,

Paper is getting jammed in the document feeder

This problem occur due the DF is not detecting the Orginal size.

I have a message coming up that I don't know what it means.

ADF = Auto Document Feeder (Usually on top)

RADF = Rear Auto Document Feeder, (On the back)

Something is stuck in one of these, a piece of paper, foam, paperclip, twist tie . . . it could be anything. Follow the squealing sound and check the paper feeder rollers.

Find what is in the way and remove it.

if using the feeder probably face up as it will likely pull the document in and invert it to lay face down on the scanning glass.

if you lift up the feeder (like lifting the top of a copy machine), then it would be face down on the glass.

there should be an image on the feeder illustrating how the document should be placed - if it looks like a page with lines on it with a bent corner then it is face up.

There is a line on the paper when copying on our hp 7680

Is the line apparent when you do a copy off the glass flat or when you copy through the auto sheet feeder?

Lift up the document feeder so you can see the glass. Have a look at the glass can you see and signs of tippex of other stuff on the glass, give the glass a clean and the line should go. If not there may be dust etc inside the optical mechanism.

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
