There maybe a small piece of paper stuck within the feed path check this as it is all sensors so the machine is giving a reading that there is a jam or place a original on the feeder and press the copy button as you may of had a jam and the machine is asking for the original to pass through it again.

I suggest the first one though
Thanks J

3055 glass

There is no need to change the mode. When the document is loaded on the document feeder, the screen displays "DOCUMENT LOADED" and shall copy or scan this document. To copy or scan from glass, DO NOT LOAD ANY DOCUMENT IN THE FEEDER. The printer will automatically copy / scan from glass.

Multiple pages feed when printing on hp 7410

  • If the automatic document feeder (ADF) does not pick up any pages at all, the rollers inside the automatic document feeder need to be cleaned.
  • If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.
SolutionLoad 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.note.pngNOTE:If the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, try cleaning the front roller. Wipe the roller with a soft lint-free cloth dampened with distilled water. If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, clean the rollers and separator pad manually. Follow the procedures below to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder, access the pick assembly inside the automatic document feeder, clean the rollers or separator pad, and then reattach the face plate.

When I copy papers on my Canon imageRunner 2800 there are 2black lines in the middle of the copied paper. How do i solve this problem?

Hello mike,
You may have a fairly easy problem to fix, and that's good thing ! If the lines only appear when you use the document feeder then we can handle this. Please place a document on the platen glass and make a copy. If the copy looks good then we need to clean your "scan" glass. The scan glass is the small glass located to the left of the large platen glass. It's about 3/4" by 14",and will only cause problems when you use the automatic doc feeder.If it gets dirty then thin lines will show up. If indeed this is the problem then I have a test u can use that will help you Take a plain piece of paper. Mentally divide it into 4 squares and then simply write the numbers 1,2,3,4 on each quadrant. At the top edge of your newly formed test document place an arrow pointing away from the body of the paper, and it needs to point "UP".. Now draw an arrow on the test document that points to the left "lead " edge. Put your newly constructed test target in the document feeder and make a copy of it. Now, you KNOW how you placed the test document, so lets look at the copy. If you have lines only thru the document feeder, then look at the copy you made and notice where the lines are. Ok, now you know where the lines show up on the copy, so lets take your "test" document and compare them side by side.Once you have made this comparison, and can see where the lines show up, take the ORIGINAL test document and place it IMAGE UP (1,2,3,4) on the glass. This will point out exactly where the dirt is. By looking at the copy that has lines, and where they show up on the page, you can use the test page that is laying face up on the glass and compare the 2. BOOM !! You can look towards the small scan glass and find the dirt that is causing the lines. With your copier, IF you place a document on the glass then the scanner moves to "scan" the document. But if you use the document feeder, the scanner stays in one spot and the motion of the document moving ACROSS the scanner and is scanned like a bar code. If there is dirt on the scan glass then a line occurs instead of a "blob" as you would see if you used the platen glass.I hope this all makes sense (I tend to ramble) and I hope it helps you. You of course could have far more complex problems. But your description of the problem sounded like my remedy/idea might be just what you need. Take care and good luck. if I helped you please let "fixya" know. SPINAL

How do I scan more than one page at a time so I have a complete document of 6 pages instead of having 6 different document

you either select add a page, or use the document feeder. The document feeder will try to scan all pages into one file.

Not scanning or copying when using the ADF on HP laserjet 3055

Based on the assumption it's mechanically ok, check the cable connection between the document feeder and the base, if damaged or worked look it can cause errors. If it is a sensor error, check for a small bit of paper or even a staple from a prior jam.

Lines of copies utilizing automatic feeder

look to the side of your big glass and you'll see a piece of glass about 1.5" wide. thats the galss that is used for scanning from the feeder. theres got to be something on that glass. possibly white-out or even a small speck of toner can cause that. look closely.

I am trying to copy a document from the automatic feeder. The feeder will not pick up the document and instead of getting a copy, I get a blank page. I have cleaned the rollers and nothing has changed.

I have noticed that these rollers can wear to the point that they no longer make proper contact with the paper regardless of cleaning. (Especially if you frequently print to paper of varied thicknesses) Try using a card stock sheet in the automatic feeder, if the problem goes away, you will need to replace the rollers to print to standard letter.

SADF Mode problem

Try turning off the machine, pushing and holding the utility key and turning it on, don't take your finger off the key. You should see a blank screen with one touch button on it saying Trouble Reset. Press it, if the machine doesn't reset itself turn it off and one again.
