Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My MP 830 printer will no longer feed copies from the automatic document feeder. The machine makes noise like gears slipping and the paper goes one fourth of the way and then stops before it can go down. At that point the machine tells me "document in ADF redo operation after checking document in ADF and pressing OK ". I do not see any blockage anywhere. I have reset machine by turning it off and then back on. I can still receive faxes OK and I can copy off of the platen. This machine is probably 18 months old and up until now has been great. Let me know. Thank you.

Check the feed roller on that paper tray. if the roller is made of rubber clean it with the eraser on a pencil making sure to clear away any extra dust. the Eraser will re-surface the roller to grip better. 
Also check inside not just for blockages but sensors that may be stuck, such sensors may look like black armatures that move easily and light sensors that easily clog with dust.
Remove the print cartridge and dust out the entire paper path.

What does load mp feeder letter mean? There is paper in the printer why is the printer not prinint

load mp feeder means To load the Manual Paper Feeder
You might have selected the printer settings for manual feeding. Hence you need to feed that papers in manual feeding tray.
You can change the settings to automatic paper feeding to get rid of this error.

Here, you will find information on feed issues with the ADF. If you still have problems, you can find information on the "clear jam" error here.

If the above fails, you can find information on paper pickup issues and also how to perform a partial reset here.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Automatic document feeder does not work-- does not pick up paper

as soon as you load the original on the ADF you get the message as original loaded..check if you get this message..
if you do not get this message..try cleaning the rollers with the lint free cloth(dry cloth)..try to make a copy..if its still the same..
then connect the printer directly to the wall outlet..and then check..
if its still the same then try these steps..
1)unplug the power chord from the back of the and hold OK and CANCEL button together..
2)while pressing these two button plug in the power chord to the back of the printer..
3)after you plug in the power chord do not release those two buttons untill the screen goes blank..
4)once the screen is blank release the buttons and then turn on the printer..
5)then try to make a copy from the ADF..if its still the same..then machine should be replaced..
let me know if this has worked..

HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black streaks

The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the orginal. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out on the glass, just clean with a dam cloth with water or windex..... Good Luck

Ricoh C21SF Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)

Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.

I am trying to copy a document from the automatic feeder. The feeder will not pick up the document and instead of getting a copy, I get a blank page. I have cleaned the rollers and nothing has changed.

I have noticed that these rollers can wear to the point that they no longer make proper contact with the paper regardless of cleaning. (Especially if you frequently print to paper of varied thicknesses) Try using a card stock sheet in the automatic feeder, if the problem goes away, you will need to replace the rollers to print to standard letter.

Top feeder won't work properly


have you tried cleaning the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder?

try to Load one or two sheets of unused plain white full-size paper into the document feeder tray, and then press Start Copy Black to pull the pages through the automatic document feeder. The plain paper releases and absorbs residue from the rollers and separator pad.

If the problem persists, clean the rollers and separator pad manually

Problem with Automatic Document Feeder

There maybe a small piece of paper stuck within the feed path check this as it is all sensors so the machine is giving a reading that there is a jam or place a original on the feeder and press the copy button as you may of had a jam and the machine is asking for the original to pass through it again.

I suggest the first one though
Thanks J
