When you say double feed detection I'm assuming you mean it picks up more than one paper.

No, it only measure the lenght of the paper it knows if it's Letter Legal or ....etc, so if it's Letter and two sheets feed in but at different time (offset) then it will show a jam, if it picks up two at the same time with no difference in lenght then it will not show a jam.

Though it has a flexible papr handling capabilities you might want to consider the ff:

Stacker Capacity: 100 Sheets Document Feed: Automatic or Manual Document Size: Width: 2.2" - 10.1"
Length: 2.8" - 14.3" Thickness: Automatic: 0.06 - 0.15mm
Manual: 0.06mm - 0.20mm Feed Capacity: 100 Sheets
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

Canon DR9050c: Is double-feeding very frequently despite new rollers (consumables). Only three years old. Problem is new. Has been working well up to this point.

Double feeding is very unlikely with a New set of rollers, as they are clean; however if the fine dust from papers stick to it, it can cause slip. The pickup and the feed rollers push the paper towards the scanning module, while the retard roller initially (in the bottom) pushes it outside. Incase there is a second sheet, it will be pushed out and only one page will enter the scan module.
Slip can take place if the paper is very smooth or has find dust on it. Stapled papers are held together at the point it was stapled, even after the stapler pin has been removed. Ensure all pages are not sticking to each other.

Error message says a double paper feed has occured and it is not double feeding. Any suggestions?

This is a known problem with the Canon P-150. I have spend countless hours on the phone (our company deployed 150 of these) trying to resolve this. The best bet is to unplug the scanner, reboot the computer, and then try again. It is usually a memory allocation issue. If the issue persists. Uninstall the "canon p-150 driver" enter, msconfig, disable all non-microsoft services, reboot, install scanner, re-enable all services and then reboot. Canon knows of this error, and what I just mentioned is what their tech support recommends. There is also a known issue with symantec or norton products interfering with the twain software interface.

System error occurred! Please consult with a service representative.

That's indicates a double feed error from the ultra sonic sensor. The system has a transmitter on the top and a receiver on the bottom. When paper passes between them it can tell how many surfaces are present. If more than 2 (upper and lower surfaces) it will alert that a double feed has been detected. They are located just behind the brake roller on the bottom and behind the feed roller on the upper side. The look like a round white ceramic disc about 3/8 " in size and are mounted at an angle to the document path. Use air or a brush to make sure nothing like a hole punch or scrap of paper is blocking them. There are adjustments for them but you need the diagnostic utility software to so it.

Does anyone know the difference between a canon ****** roller and an exchanger roller on a canon dr-2080c scanner? I am looking to replace the rollers that are ageing and now "picking" up more than one...

The exchange roller kit has all the tires that pick up the paper in the kit (feed, separation, and pick up tires). I think the other tire you are talking about is just one tire not the set.
Also check to see a switch on the scanner that is used for single feed or multiple feed. If its on single feed it will multi feed all the time. You can clean the tire with rubbing alcohol too, to see if your double feeding goes away.

Canon FB630u problem

I have struggled with this same issue for ages, I just found a fix from the HP site for the same problem with an HP scanner - it worked for my Canon LiDE70. Run regedit then:
  1. Double-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to open the folder in the left pane of the window.
  2. Double-click SYSTEM , CurrentControlSet , Control and then Class .
  3. Select {6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F} and check in the pane on the right for the Lower Filters string value.
  4. Right-click Lower Filters and delete it.
  5. Disconnect the scanning device and restart the computer.
  6. Reconnect the scanning device after the computer is restarted.
  7. BINGO! it worked!

Why does the scanner hesitate when feeding the paper through the scanner and gives a scanned double image at the top of the page?

Is there a gear grinding noise associated with this? If so, call your local dealer for service. If not:Clean all the rollers you can reach with a cloth dampened with alcohol. Check for any obstructions in the paper path like torn paper, heavy toner buildup on guide plates or the edges of the scanning glass, or any paper guides obviously loose or out of place.
