gtabblt.gif Tips for Using gtabblt.gif Step 1 - Load the Paper gtabblt.gif Step 2 - Scan the Document gtabblt.gif To Scan a Single Page gtabseps.gif Tips for Using
  • Remove any paper from the copyboard glass before using the ADF.
  • Straighten any curls or wrinkles from documents before putting them on the document tray. If this is not possible, do not scan these documents using the ADF. Instead, use the copyboard glass or make a photocopy of the documents and scan the photocopies.
  • Remove staples, paper clips, and any other materials from documents.
  • Avoid documents with tears, perforations, or punch holes.
  • Do not use the ADF to scan sheets of uncommon paper or other media, such as the following: - transparencies - gummed-backed paper - magazine pages - lightweight ("onionskin") carbons
  • For paper smaller than 5 inches (127 mm) by 7 inches (178 mm) or larger than 14 inches (356 mm) by 8.5 inches (216 mm), use the scanner glass instead of the ADF. Paper smaller than the minimum size may cause a paper jam.
  • For paper lighter than 16 lb bond (60 g/m sq) or heavier than 32 lb bond (120 g/m sq), use the scanner glass instead of the ADF.
  • Before scanning, always push the front of the ADF downward to the scanner to ensure that the magnetic latches are engaged.
Step 1 - Load the Paper Besides the instructions below, quick reference decals on the input tray and access hatch show the order of steps for paper loading.
  1. Turn on the scanner.
  2. Ensure the scanner's scanner glass is free of paper.
  3. Turn the green paper load lever into an upright and open position. Refer to decal number 1 located on the ADF access hatch.
  4. Put the top end of the paper stack face up on the input tray. Refer to decal number 2 and pointer arrows on the ADF input tray.
  5. Push the paper stack up against the green document guide and slide it right against the green registration stop, which is in the middle of the paper load window.
  6. Turn the green paper load lever 45 degrees into the closed position. This will secure the paper stack. Refer to decal number 3 on the ADF access hatch. The ADF is now loaded and ready for scanning.
Step 2 - Scan the Document The ADF works with many software packages that are compatible with the HP ScanJet color scanners. To scan a document, refer to the user's manual of the software package being used. To Scan a Single Page To scan a single page while the ADF is installed on the scanner, do the following.
  1. Remove any pages from the ADF input tray.
  2. Raise the ADF.
  3. Place the page on the scanner's copyboard glass.
  4. Lower the ADF all the way and do the scan.

I get a singleline down the center of any scan i was told it was a blown pixel(?)


This could be cause by some debris or marks on the scanner glass that is used for Auto document feeder (ADF) page scans. Please refer to this article found in the Lexmark website about Vertical Lines Down the Page when Paper Fed via Autodocument Feeder (ADF).

Got a dark line down document when scanner via AFD


When you use the adf, the scanner remains stationary at the far left side of the platen. Check and make sure that the glass is very clean there; use a damp cloth to remove any dirt or other foreign material.

Scanning a document from the ADF results in a line down the middle of each page scanned. Scanning from the platen (not using the ADF) works fine


Lift the scanner cover so that you can see the platen glass. Look to the left of the large sheet of glass and you will see a narrow strip of glass. This is the area used to scan documents fed from the ADF. Make sure that this glass is very clean. Use a damp cloth to clean any dirt or buildup.

When using the ADF to scan multiple document the scanner assembly stay stationary and the paper is fed across it. Where the scanner parks for this there is something between the scanner and the document, likely on the glass. Often there is a small strip of glass on one end of the scanner bed. Clean here if there is one, otherwise look around and I'm sure you'll find it. Remember, never spray cleaning solutions directly onto the glass, always onto a cloth or towel first. The scanner has a calibration strip that can be damaged otherwise.

Have a Phaser 6110 MFP. When I scan a page using the ADF I get 3 color lines running vertically down the image. If I don't use the ADF, the page scans without the lines. What could be causing this?


There are some small spots on the "seal" glass. It is the 3/4 inch wide strip under the scanner, not the main glass. Clean that strip well, I suggest taking some rubbing alcohol and just a regular piece of paper, crumpled up. Use that to clean that strip vigorously.
That will take care of it.

How do I scan more than one page at a time


Hi there,
To scan more than one page at a time you can use ADF.
The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can scan multiple pages, including duplex pages. When using the ADF:
* Load the document into the ADF faceup, short edge first.
* Load up to 50 sheets of plain paper into the ADF input tray.
*Scan sizes from 148 x 210 mm (5.8 x 8.3 in.) to 215.9 to 355.6mm (8.5 x 14 in.).
* Scan documents with mixed page sizes (letter and legal).
*Scan media weights from 52 to 120 g/m2 (14 to 32 lb ).
* Do not load post cards, photos, small items, transparency, photo paper or the thin media (such as magazine clippings) into the ADF. Place these items on the scanner glass.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

How do I scan a bunch of originals from the tray and get 1 file for each page?


Loading originals to scan
Use these instructions to load originals into your device for scanning. For the best quality
scans, use the flatbed scanner. See Selecting media for the automatic document feeder
(ADF) for guidelines on choosing original documents for scanning.
Loading originals onto the flatbed scanner
1. Make sure that the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray is free of media.
2. Lift the flatbed scanner lid.
3. Place the original document face-down on the flatbed scanner with the top, left corner of
the document at the lower-right corner of the glass.
4. Gently close the lid.
5. The document is ready to be scanned.
CAUTION To prevent damaging the device, do not allow the scanner lid to fall onto the flatbed scanner
surface. Always close the scanner lid when the device is not in use.
Loading originals into the automatic document feeder (ADF)
input tray
Note The ADF capacity is up to 50 sheets of 75 g/m2 (20 lb) media (depending on the thickness of
the media), or fewer sheets if the stack fills the ADF.
The minimum size for media in the ADF is 127 by 127 mm (5 by 5 inches). For smaller sizes
use the flatbed scanner. The maximum size for media in the ADF is 215.9 by 381 mm (8.5 by
15 inches).
1. Make sure that the flatbed scanner contains no media.
2. Close the flatbed scanner cover and put the top end of the stack of originals into the ADF
input tray, with the media stack face-up and the first page to be scanned on top of the
stack.
3. Slide the stack into the ADF input tray until it does not move any farther.
