My HP J6480 ADF is making a grinding noise when I try and fax or copy documents fed thru the ADF. I have tried cleaning the rollers but that hasn't worked. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks - I tried that -- it still is making the noise but did grab the paper. It's not totally smooth but I will wait and see what happens.

    If I get up the courage - I will try that - thanks again.

You need to locate, from where sound is coming from.
Then use wd40 or silicone grease oil, and lubricate.
its probably dirt on axis bushings.

    If you have some skills and most important will, dismantle tha adf ( covers, rollers...) and clean and little lubricate all bushings, bearings, clutches....

Straight thin line prints on copies from feeder


Hi,
When the paper is fed through Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) it is scanned before copy or fax. The scanner is fixed type and is located just below the ADF.
The lines are due to dirty scanner mirror. The printer/ scanner design is based Sheet-Fed Scanner. Open/Lift the Control Panel (scanner top )(by pulling it up from front - the area from where the paper to scan comes out). Look out for the horizontal mirror and use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently clean the scanner mirror, rollers etc. and enjoy clear scanning and copying! For example see the below picture: -

Inspect for any tron pieces of paper dirt etc.DONT USE PAPER, CHEMICALS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTH as it may damage the parts.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My HP Officejet 6310xi displays a vertical line when copies are fed through the ADF and when sending faxes through the ADF, the same problem occurs. What could be the cause?


Open the Top Feeder Cover
Clean the Roller with lint free cloth.
Lift the Roller a bit up and you will find a glass strip underneath the rollers
Clean the glass strip with cloth and close the feeder
Try scanning or copying. it should work

Regards,
Ron

Red/yellow line down left side of document when using feeder


the solution to this issue is cleaning the scanner glass below the automatic document feeder(mind you its not the scan bed that you normally use while copying) .you will get the ADF scnner glass once you lift the ADF door,you will see a 1 inch wide scanner glass.that is what you need to clean.

My HP printer paper get stuck in top feeder whenever I try to fax


Lift the cover to the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and remove any paper debris from the rollers. Also, clean the rollers with a very damp cloth and a dab od dish washing detergent.
Also, check to see that the spring loaded lever is in place.

Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)
  1. Make sure the product is turned off and the power cord is unplugged.
  2. Grasp the upper edge of the automatic document feeder (ADF) assembly and open it.
  3. Raise the roller assembly.
  4. Gently remove any jammed paper from the ADF.
  5. Lower the roller assembly.
  6. Close the ADF assembly.
  7. Plug the power cord back into the product.
  8. Press the Power button (c01346625.gif ) to turn the product on.
  9. Try the print job again.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

No copy and send fax from adf unit


First try reseting the unit by holding the * key and the enter button and the same time turn it on until it starts beeping. This will rest the machine. If this does not work. you need ADF rollers the can be purchased for 20 to 25 bucks

Line in copies that go thru feeder


Hi,

Over time the automatic document feeder (ADF) will get dirty, occasionally causing vertical black streaks or lines in scans and copies .

Manual cleaning of the ADF might be necessary. Follow the procedure below to manually clean the ADF .

You will need the following materials:
  • Soft lint-free cloths
  • Glass cleaner
if you look carefully on the left side of ADF ( top feeder ) there is an assembly which u can lift , there wud be a set of rollers if u lift that part there would be a glass strip . u are suppose to clean that strip .
While holding up the inside of the ADF, clean the glass in the location of the vertical streak with one of the cotton swabs. Try cleaning the glass first with a dry cotton swab. If that does not correct the problem, then moisten the swab with glass cleaner .
If the vertical lines or streaks still appear, go through the above cleaning process again, this time cleaning the entire surface of the ADF scanner glass.
and after this try the following steps as well .
CAUTION: Use only glass cleaner. Avoid abrasives, acetone, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride, all of which can damage the scanner glass.
