Hp officejet 7310 document feeder cover

Hi jaiku,
Thanks for replying to my problem about the document feeder cover (sensor probaby broken or burned out).
Where is the wire to disconnect the document feeder? Is there only one wire? Do I cut it or pull it out?
Thanks for your time.

    I have the same error on a 7310ix, I fixed it a year ago by utilizing adeceleration event (dropping the damn thing 3 inches or so). It justshowed up again, and I tried that--removed the wire from the PCB (thereare four connectors which go into the pcb) which did nothing. There'sa flange which appears to drop down into the sensor, but it's plastic,does not appear broken at all, and I don't see any particular optics onthe sensor, which may be where the problem is...

    It is crazy hot when the wires are connected though (the motor), so I'm wondering if heat has damaged a component on the pcb?

    In theory I should be able to bridge the the pcb to force it to think it was closed...any thoughts?

Why does it say the document feeder is not closed

one of the covers that you can open is not seated properly so a sensor is not being told to turn off, maybe a plastic tab that is use to accurate the sensor is broken or the sensor is bad.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

My conon printer mx340 says ducuments in adf error

Hi guys,
This error occurs when paper sensor in ADF = Automatic Document Feeder detects some paper inside paper path. Firs, open ADF access cover and check if some broken paper present inside paper path. If no broken paper found in paper path means paper sensor is faulty and you need got new ADF replacement. Thanks

I keep getting an alarm and it is saying document in ADF. There is nothing stuck in it, I've tried everything!

You could have a stuck or broken document edge sensor. There is usually a small lever that the document pushes down when you slide it into the feeder. This lever should move smoothly. If it is stuck down or broken the unit will think there is always a document in the feeder.

Some units have two sensor levers, one sensing the leading edge and one sensing the trailing edge when the document exits the feeder. If either one is stuck you could get a jam error. If both levers are working (if you can locate both of them) then one of the sensors may be bad (they are usually optical pair sensors inside the feeder housing). Of course, if the sensors are good and you still get an error the main board may be bad, but that is fairly unlikely.

Most likely is that there is something jammed into the feeder at the exit or where the document enters and it's pushing on one of the levers.

Document feeder door open

The doc feeder is the one on top, there's a sensor in the hinge at the rear. If the tab is broken from the top cover, you need to fold a piece of paper and put it inside the horse shoe shaped sensor to get past the error.

C2424 Removal of covers

They would tell you how. But I can tell you how to remove them
1. Disconnect and unplug the document feeder and remove the document feeder and scanner assembly. Once you remove the molex connector from the socket by the power cord you go to the back of the machine and there will be 2 tabs you press down to release the scaner, pull it back until you get it past the tabs, lift up and off.
2. There is 1 screw on the back of the machine, for each cover, on the upper portion of the frame, they are torx screws, remove those.
3. Step to the side of the machine and lift up and out on the cover, pull at about the middle of the cover. The front cover will pop off in the process, that is all that holds the front on. Slip off the front cover and lift the side covers up and toward yourself. Some tabs will realease as you pull the covers up. That is all there is to removing the covers.
What do you want to do once inside the machine??

Won't copy document through feeder.

When you say it won't copy, do you mean that the paper won't move in the feeder or that no copies come out? Do you get any error messages? Try using alcohol on a swab or lint free cloth and clean the feed rollers in the feeder. They sometimes get paper dust on them and they can't pick up the paper. Also make sure that any paper sensors that detect when paper is in the feeder are intact. Occasionally they get stuck or broken. Hope this works.

Unfortunately, you can't buy the sensor finger by itself. You need the DADF Assy.

Document jam

There is a sensor in the document feeder that most likely is stuck on the frame or the spring fell off and is not resetting. Have you taken a minela folder and run it through the feeder to be sure there is not a small fragmant of paper on the sensors? If you havent try that, or a piece of paper folded in half twice and keep sliding it though the feeder.
You would have to take the feeder apart to get the sensor set, That is best accomplished by taking the back cover off, then the left side cover, ( looking from the front) and disconnecting the feedder connectors, then removing it from the scanner.

Cover door for document feeder not closed

possible cause is that you have broken the DF door tail that senses the door closed. Check by opening the cover you should see a slit with either a switch in there or a light sensor. Push the switch down using small flat blade screw driver or if light sensor place a folded piece of paper in the gap.

Either one should then recognize that the door is closed.

Hope this can help and if this does work will need to replace the door.
