Question about Ricoh Aficio SP-C210SF Printer
How do I replace the rollers on the ADF feeder?
I was getting that "CEHCK DOCUMNET OPEN AFD FEEDER" error message and it won't even copy from the platten..
The ADF separation pad is the cause. To remove it lift the cover fully up then use a knife to get under the black tape tab at the top right of the large white foam pad. Pull the tape and the white foam pad loose but not completely - leave the bottom attached. Now you can see the ADF separation pad from below. Use a small screwdriver or spring hook to remove the spring and you will be able to wiggle the ADF separation pad out. First take a good look at how it fits in so you can put it back! The problem is caused by the small black foam pad under the white rubbery tape on the ADF pad assembly. I carefully removed the tape from the back edge to expose the compressed black foam pad. I then cut a matching size of 1/16" foam I had in my shop which was actually HP 98A doctor blade seal foam and just stuck it on top of the old compressed foam. (other similar foam should also work) Then I replaced the white rubbery tape and rubbed the edge down well. I then reinstalled the restored ADF pad and the spring which holds it. Last I just pressed the large white foam pad back into position - being sure to pull it with a slight tension as I pressed into place. This fixed the ADF feed and it worked like new again...

Sikna is absolutely correct. I had the same problem with the automatic document feeder on my Canon imageclass d780. Removing the white foam platen cover exposes the parts of the automatic document feeder which need maintenance. You can also buy a replacement ADF separation pad from: http://www.precisionroller.com/doc-feeder-parts-for-canon-imageclass-d780/products.html
While waiting for the replacement part you can also add a rubber band across the spring to increase the tension on the separation pad as a temporary fix.
Dont forget to clean the document feeder rollers with alcohol and a clean cloth while they are exposed when you remove the white foam platen cover.
Replacee the white foam platen cover with doublestick tape on the edges to keep it in place.
