Hello himsmyboy!

Sikna says

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:

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.

Cannot clear error message "Document

Hi nigel_lester,

This error message "Document in ADF" that you are getting means that you need to remove foreign object from the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Kindly follow the procedure below in clearing document jams:

Document jams in the ADF (Document Tray)

1. First, press Stop/Reset.
2. If a multi-page document is loaded, remove any documents other than the jammed page from the ADF. 3. Then, open the Feeder Cover.
4. From under the roller to the Feeder Cover side, remove the jammed page.
5. If a document is not jammed, check the document feed area if there's foreign material. If there's any, carefully remove it.
6. Close the Feeder Cover.

  • If documents remain in the ADF after pressing during scanning, [Document in ADF] will appear on the LCD. Press so that the remaining document is automatically fed out.
  • When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

Document jams in the ADF (inner side)

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. Raise the paper release lever (A) then remove the jammed page from under the roller to the Feeder Cover side.
4. Open the Document Cover and pull out the document from the inner side.
5. Close the Document Cover.
6. Close the Feeder Cover.

Note: When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Canon mx320...i dont have a document jam but error message keeps saying remove documnet from adf file and eject documnet..i have checked all of my connections and turned the power off and on ..removed...

on the top of your printer, the ADF section (Automatic Document Feeder) where the documents is feed to for faxing, check if there is a paper stuck in it.
or better open the ADFcover and examine a latch switch make sure it is standing up right.

Roller marks on copies. I ran the cleaning menu and it asks me to open the ADF to clean the rollers.. How do you do that and where is it.

The adf is the automatic document feeder and its located on top of the machine. use a clothe with 409, simple green or water and look in where you put your copies to be copied. You will see 2 grey rollers. wipe them off. NO alcohol Also are the marks on the docs you are running through the adf or comming out of the copier. Steven 818-888-0006

Never clean feed rollers with alcohol. Lift the automatic doc. feed cover up. You will see 2 grey rollers. Clean them with 409,fantastic or water. The rollers are available. A pain to put in. Steven

Canon Imageclass D880 automatic document feeder problems


Clean the ADF rollers and pad with alcohol.

Check to see if your ADF has done over 90 000 copies and if it has, change the ADF pick up assembly only.

Good Luck

The ADF is the Automatic Document feeder through which you feed the paper in on top of the printer. Usually the cover swivle/opens up, and you can check if there is paper debris in the rollers. Clean the rollers with cotton pad and some alcohol.

Well, open the adf and see if there's anything jammed in there. While you are at it, clean all the white out off the rollers and the scan glass. Then make sure the ADF cover is snapped shut properly

Will not copy

If the paper isn't feeding in the ADF (automatic document feeder - upper paper feeder) then the ADF roller assembly will need to be replaced. Try a copy on the flat glass area. If it work, then it's the ADF, If not then the upper scanner assembly with have to be replaced.
