what size page are you trying to scan, if they are smaller than the gap between the transport rollers, they will not feed.
the single sheet problem you have:- the scanner knows when there is paper to feed when the sensor is pushed up beside the pick roller and it will put the tray down again when the rollers are pushed up. sometimes the little plastic sensor to the left of the roller gets a bit stuck and needs to be freed, it wares itself out where it hinges inside the cover around the pick roller. just unclipping it and cleaning it is usually enough.
If the scanner is scanning but stops after a few pages either it could be because of a) There is insufficient disk space (you need to delete unwanted files or direct the comp to store whre there is space) or b) the rubber rollers are not able to separate pages and feed the papers for scanning.(You need to change the rollers)
There are quite a few optical paper sensors in any scanner. If one of them is blocked by a shred of paper, the scanners 'assumes' the paper is available and starts scanning. Try to blow air and clean the scanner. Take care not to damage the sensors.

Do you get an error message after the first scanned image? If not, check your software settings to see if you have the option of single page /multipage scanning. Some software lets the customer choose a single page scan when the SCAN button is pressed.
Check the "Feed Select Lever" to make sure it is in mutifeed position. If not, it will grab all of the docs at once.
Our problem is not solved. It was suggested the feeder needed cleaning or wasn't working. The feeder works as we make copies of documents. If one is scanning can you feed the document or can you only scan one page at a time by placing it on the window?
This is not the only solution, but this might help.
Put a blank page in as the first page and see if all of your documents scan completely.
You may need to clean the ADF. Try the following:
Cleaning the Automatic Document Feeder You may need to clean the ADF feed mechanism if your documents do not feed easily into the ADF, or several feed in at the same time. To clean the ADF: 1. Dampen a soft cloth with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol (95%). 2. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover. 3. Wipe the feed roller from side to side. Rotate the roller to clean its entire surface. 4. Wipe the pad from top to bottom. Be careful not to snag the cloth on the springs on either side of the pad. 5. Close the cover when you’re finished. NOTE: Please be careful when cleaning the roller. The roller is designed to rotate in one direction only. As you’re cleaning the roller, make sure it rotates easily, and continue rotating it in that direction while wiping it clean. Do NOT force the roller to rotate in the opposite direction. Forcing the roller to rotate will damage it, and may cause the scanner to feed pages incorrectly.
Please let me know if this has helped and thank you. Binary Bob
Is there a gear grinding noise associated with this? If so, call your local dealer for service.
If not:Clean all the rollers you can reach with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Check for any obstructions in the paper path like torn paper, heavy toner buildup on guide plates or the edges of the scanning glass, or any paper guides obviously loose or out of place.
