Document in ADF error when faxing

Every time I fax something - it takes several tries. The error that comes up on the screen indicated "Document in ADF press ". Sometimes it takes over 10 tries before it grabs the paper. Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening?

    I'm having the same problem. I've had my MP530 for 20 months, use it lightly, and never had trouble using the ADF for faxes until the past month.

    I'm having the problem when using the ADF to copy documents. It just won't grap the documents. Neither Canon or the local sevice office have a clue.

  1. This problem is caused by refilling your ink cartridge but there is a solution
  2. When the ink is low or the computer thinks the ink is low the sheet feeder will not work
  3. You will notice that the in use/memory light is on
  4. The memory has a report it needs to print but does not want to print it without ink
  5. To print the report anyway do the following:
  6. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.
  7. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed
  8. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.
  9. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.
    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK. Select Yes. make sure there is paper in the printer.

  10. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

Black lines when sending faxes or making copies


I've been getting many calls asking me why their fax/copiers/printers are getting black lines when they send faxes and making copies while using the automatic document feeder, and not when they open the document feeder and use the glass.

What happens, when you fax or copy papers that has white-out or some material that can flake off, it gets embedded on the ADF glass and the unit thinks its part of the paper.

99% of the time, what needs to be done is to clean the small glass, usually using fingernails to scratch off the dirt, or using a lint free cloth slightly moistened, should do the trick. Just go over it several times until it comes off.

If the lines are thick, it usually indicates a damaged scanner assembly, in cases with the Brother machines, not expensive to fix. With other units, its a different story, either because they do not sell the scanner assembly as a part, or units are sent in for whole unit repairs.

When trying to fax I get an error "open adf cover"...


You should be able to. It sounds like you've got a paper jam in the document feeder. Chances are there was a jam and part of the document (a small peice perhaps) is still lodged in the document feeder unit.

No copy and send fax from adf unit


First try reseting the unit by holding the * key and the enter button and the same time turn it on until it starts beeping. This will rest the machine. If this does not work. you need ADF rollers the can be purchased for 20 to 25 bucks
