I get a "close the feeder door" message each time I try to print or copy.And I do not know what to do.

Chances are the sensor is broken so the printer doesn't know that the feeder is closed. You can try calling 1-800-OK-CANON for support but, unfortunately, it often costs more to fix a printer than it does to buy a new one.

"remove original from document processor"

Sensor in feeder is probably broken. To get around this until you can get it fixed power down the unit and unplug it. Unplug the cable that connects the Doc feeder (in the back) to the main unit (two screws hold it on. Then power the unit back up it will work with out the Doc feeder. You will just have to put the copies on the main glass.

Find & salvage the tray from a used 5500. I occasionally find items thru ebay, craigs list (by placing a wanted notice), computer repair or recycling centers & even goodwill stores. Alternatively see if the tray can be fixed or modified.

Document feeder door open

The doc feeder is the one on top, there's a sensor in the hinge at the rear. If the tab is broken from the top cover, you need to fold a piece of paper and put it inside the horse shoe shaped sensor to get past the error.

The spring from the feeder popped out but I have it.

There should be two little holders on either side and you can just slide it back on to those if it is not broken.

HP 3055 model scaner problem

Document feeder error means that the printer is expecting you to have a document in the ADF "automatic Document Feeder" on top. If you are having this on the laptop, go into the scanner set up on your laptop, and change the device from document feeder to flatbed. It should work fine. You can also mimic the settings from your desktop to your laptop.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
