Hello,

Depends on how the ADF is malfunctioning. If it just plain doesn't work, then you are likely looking at a control cable / connector issue.

If it grabs multiple pages at same time, or doesn't want to grab pages at all, you can try using a "cleaning sheet" available for inkjet printers. Most office supply stores will sell these. The cleaning sheet helps to clean the paper path (wheels, idlers, etc). You should also be able to pop open the ADF cover, and remove any paper debris that is present. See owners manual for this procedure though, it is easy to break the cover.

Multiple pages feed when printing on hp 7410


  • If the automatic document feeder (ADF) does not pick up any pages at all, the rollers inside the automatic document feeder need to be cleaned.
  • If the automatic document feeder picks up multiple pages instead of single sheets, the separator pad inside the automatic document feeder needs to be cleaned.
SolutionLoad 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.note.pngNOTE:If the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, try cleaning the front roller. Wipe the roller with a soft lint-free cloth dampened with distilled water. If the problem persists, or the automatic document feeder does not pick up the plain paper, clean the rollers and separator pad manually. Follow the procedures below to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder, access the pick assembly inside the automatic document feeder, clean the rollers or separator pad, and then reattach the face plate.

What does "Original Jam" mean and how do I fix it?


Your "original" document -- the document that you are trying to copy, has jammed inside the printer's sheet-feeder.

Remove all the pages of the original from the "input" tray, and then look for a "missing" page -- one of your original pages is "jammed" inside the printer.

There is no such manual for the HP OJ G85. Disassembly is not complicated. Just take your time.

You can remove the plastic knob by pulling it gently forward and disconnecting it to clean inside and then reconnecting and closing again.

The feed on the printer quit


The automatic document feeder plug is on the back of the feeder and plugs in to the lower half of the printer in the back. You can't miss the round plug hole. Pretty staight forward.
