Recently my scanner will auto feed the last 10 or so sheets all at once. I auto feed about 60-100 sheets at a time, but the last ten pages have recently gone thru together all at once. I replaced the auto feed tires in hopes this would correct the issue, but it persists. I clean it often with staticide wipes and the compressed air containers. Any further suggestions to correct this?
I opened the hood on the machine, and between the first two intake rollers on the bottom, there is a small rubber strip. This strip comes packaged with a sticky yellow tape to protect the rubber. When it was installed, no one removed this tape. After doing so, the machine feeds great. Hope this helps someone else who may be experiencing a similar feed issue.

paper feed clutches are weak compared to what they were in this series you may
have to replace the clutch. Bud, after doing some research you need to clean

If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the
sheet feeder. Reload it against the right edge, behind the tabs, then
slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure the paper is not
in front of the feeder guard.
If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.
Don't load too
many sheets at once (up to 20 sheets of photo paper, 80 sheets of
Premium Bright White paper, or 100 sheets of plain paper).
There is a pad below the feed roller that wears out. It is called a ****** pad, it retards the feeding of extra sheets of paper. That pad will need to be replaced. Once it is it will stop multisheet feeding.
Is the scanner scanning normally otherwise? Try scanning a printed matter with white background and if it is okay, then the streaking may be because of excess brightness chosen. Check if the paper movement is at constant speed. If it is smooth paper, it may slip and the same area may scanned again, appearing like a streak.
That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

all scanner are equipped with double feed prevention, however it still the user responsibility to ensure that you follow manufacturer's advice, to prevent double feeding:
1- do not feed dog eared paper
2- moistured paper or with strong humid
3- concave paper
4- convex paper
You can try to clean the retard pad under the feed roll, but for best results you should replace it. Parts are readily available on the web. You should spend around $20 for the pad, and $50 for the feed roll. You may not need the roll. Examine it and see how the tread looks. These parts are easy to replace.
Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly.
You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard.
If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it.
Let me know how you get on.
