Really strange! May be the brightness is not controlled in the ADF mode, too bright to scan data on the backside also. Try reinstallig the software.

I get a red line down one side of the page when scanning using the adf on a HP 5590 scanner


My guess is the ADF has picked up some dirt. Check the path very carefully.

When scanning with the ADF all I get is a white page. I cannot find a solution. This is the second scanner I have had as I sent the first one back with the same problem. Maybe I am doing something wrong.


You could be feeding the paper upside down.
Try turning the sheets over and re-scan.
The paper travels into the scanner from the top and then onto the glass. This means the paper should start out with printing face up.

ADF


1- reinstall drivers

2- Use the WIA driver for Windows OpSys

3- Pay close attention to options in dialog box. Select ADF or Document Feeder as an option

4- Depending on the OCR application [personally I prefer PaperPort] the imaging process can be very eaasy or somewhat difficult

HP ScanJet 5590 automatic feeder not working


Have you tried scanning in the flat bed mode? Does it scan okay? If the image is good, then there is no problem with scan module. Check your page settings. If the page size selected for scanning is smaller than actual size, there can be some peoblems. Try and scan with max size. Check if the sensors are dust/paper free. A small piece of paper (The small round discarded piece from Computer stationery) in the paper sensor can create trouble.

Document Feeder


This sounds like a sensor failure - is it under warranty?

ADF document feed


Hi, The problem seems to be a piece of debris , paper stuck in the ADF roller assy. You can check this by opening up the adf cover and inspecting the paper path. I have seen where a very small peice can cause paper path problems to where something is blocking the paper> Good Luck!
