The sensor for that is in the back left corner, there's a plastic piece that fits between a horseshoe shaped sensor down near the hinge for the cover. If the plastic piece is broken you can place something in the slot and it will think the cover is closed.

It could be the sensor - It could be a tiny bit of paper stuck in the feeder area. But most likely the Feeder Cover just isn't closed properly. Try opening the cover all the way (The sensor is right in front when you open the cover - a tiny bit of metal bent into sort of a question mark shape.) Then close the cover and apply just a bit of pressure to ensure it is closed all the way. While you have the cover open just blow out all the dust with a can of compressed air or something similar.

Hope this helps fix your problem.

Why does it say the document feeder is not closed


one of the covers that you can open is not seated properly so a sensor is not being told to turn off, maybe a plastic tab that is use to accurate the sensor is broken or the sensor is bad.

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.

  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.

I have canon 320 MX, and I recived all the time a messege - document in the ADF, I press OK , then I recive a second messege - close the feeder cover and eject the document.NO documents are in the printer...


Hi!
look more closely on the ADF section, if there is no paper remains then you must need to check if the paper feed sensor is not press down or stuck. This sensor, a small plastic latch slide is responsible for detecting load paper in the ADF section. Check if there is something that keeping it stuck in that position. You will need to open the cover of the ADF section to do this.

Hope it works.

Canon 1023if auto feeder not working. Says check


The document feeder has multiple sensors in it. sometimes they hang up and stay stuck out of place. Other sensors might get paper dust on the face of the sensor. If you can open the document cover, locate the sensors and see if any are ajar or the sensor flag fell out of place. Also look to see if a paper is stuck in any of the paper path areas. Not seeing the machine it is hard to say if it fed paper and says check document, if it did, clean the feed wheels with a wet paper towel.

Can't send faxes , keeps saying document jamed


Open the front cover by pulling it towards you (that is the cover where are the digits and other function keys), see if any paper has inside and than close the front cover and press the " Stop " button.
Remember if you do not close the front cover good the message will still appear on the screen because the machine thinks that the cover is not closed. That happen because of the sensor on the front cover which detects do the front cover is closed so check dose the door is good closed. If your machine do not pull the documents in the " document feeder " than open the front cover and you will see pair of rubbers inside, clean them with alcohol or glass cleaner and clean peace of cloth.

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.

HP laserjet 3055 has Document feeder jam errror


It sounds to me like the switch that senses when paper is present is blocked or out of position.

The User Manual and such does not provide sufficient detail for me to decipher what type of switch is used. It is either going to be a switch that is depressed to close the circuit when paper is present and is held down somehow now, or it is a proximity sensor and there is dirt or whatever on the sensor that is enough to make it think there is paper there. It should be something that appears to be a tiny window, and it would need to be cleaned with a qtip or 100% cotton cloth and isopropyl alcohol.

You will likely need to remove the ADF feeder cover to obtain full access to the ADF mechanism and find the sensor, since it is most likely recessed in the ADF quite a ways.

The other possibility is that the wire for the sensor has been damaged after a jam or something of that nature.

If you have searched for the sensor and cannot locate it / clear the error, then you will need to have a service tech work on the machine.

Cover door for document feeder not closed


possible cause is that you have broken the DF door tail that senses the door closed. Check by opening the cover you should see a slit with either a switch in there or a light sensor. Push the switch down using small flat blade screw driver or if light sensor place a folded piece of paper in the gap.

Either one should then recognize that the door is closed.

Hope this can help and if this does work will need to replace the door.
