Thank you anyway.

Error message with canon mx410 "cannot scan from adf"


I fixed this by changing the Copy Intensity from Auto to Manual
I had the same paper jam (caused by pressing Stop during a page going into the ADF), but I had pressed OK as instructed and the page was auto fed back out again. Then I couldnt copy from ADF after that.
I tried everything, and then started to retrace my steps of all the things I might have tinkered with to try and get the copying working in the first place, before the paper jam.
Then I remembered I had set the Copy Intensity from Manual to Auto (thinking Auto is always best). With hindsight, it now makes sense for it to be manual with the ADF as otherwise how would it load a page, use it to set auto density, and then reload it again for the actual copy to occur. This happens okay on the flatbed scanner as it can scan a little, work out the settings, and then scan for real.
Copy Intensity is reached on my Canon MX from the Menu button at the bottom left of the front panel. - Then press the right arrow twice to get to Color Intensity. - Hit OK. - Then right arrow from "Auto" to "Manual Adjust"- Then pick a setting or leave it as half-way between light and dark- Press OK
Now every time my ADF copying works a treat. Thats what I get for tinkering in things I didn't need to change in the first place. I was just trying to get a quick copy going from ADF to paper without saving a file up on the computer and then printing.

Cannot print screen shows ADF.what does this mean?


Hi!

ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder and it means the device mounted on top of your pixma that allows multiple pages to be scanned/copied/faxed one at a time automatically.

Now why does it not print? The machine "believes" some document is inserted in the ADF in order to be scanned/copied/faxed, and wants that operation to be completed before it accept any print job. Please remove, if present, any paper from the ADF. Maybe its only some small piece of broken paper or even dust on the sensor in the ADF.

Good luck!

Does canon pixma mx 310 work faxing page up or page down?


When using the ADF load the document with the side you want to copy, fax or scan facing UP in the ADF.

When using the platen glass load the document with the side to be copied, faxed or scanned facing DOWN on the platen glass.

Trust this helpful.

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.

When I scan or print through the multi page loader on the top of the unit it puts a line down the side of the document


There is a piece of debris in the path of the scanner and document. Check the ADF scanner glass, a small strip to the left, for anything. Use a Q-tip lightly dampened with some distilled water to wipe the glass clean and dry.

Documents will not feed from the ADF


Is there a more permanent fix in the meantime? I'm just tired of fiddling each time that I use the ADF

My CANON PIXMA MP530 is showing the alarm, "Document in ADF."


Open the top cover of the ADF and look for a rectangular hole with a lever stuck down. That lever should only go down when a paper is placed in the feeder, and sometimes they get stuck in the down position. A bent paper clip might help you lift it gently...

ADF for MP530 does not work


Welp, I pulled out my screwdriver and fiddled around just a bit and got documents to feed again (yay!). I do not believe this is a permanent fix, though, but it was enough to get my document scanned in without me having to feed each sheet manually.

Step 1: Open the document feeder cover. Easy to do, you just stick your hand under it and lift up. It has a little pressure because of the latch but it is designed to give way when you lift hard enough. Once it's open, pull out the little black plastic piece that keeps the cover from swinging all the way open.

Step 2: Unscrew the ADF motor/gear assembly cover. There's a single screw holding it in. Once you unscrew it, you'll need to pull up on the left side of the cover until it pops upward, then you need to push the cover towards the left until it is freed up from the rest of the cover. This one was a little tricky. Several times I thought I might break it (before I realized that I needed to push the cover towards the left) so try not to apply unreasonable force while you're doing this.

Step 3: Close the document feeder cover, put your documents in the feeder and start your scan. Use your fingers to fiddle with the gears while the ADF motor is running and trying to feed documents. I'm not sure if I flicked the little gear upward or downward to get the documents to feed, but one of those ways got the documents to start feeding. Once it started feeding the first page, it seemed to work well for the rest of the pages without me having to fiddle with it anymore.

I am guessing that there is some level that controls the location of the middle gear that needs to be oiled, but I didn't go any further to try and make that happen. Hence this is probably just a temporary fix for now.

Putting it back together is pretty straightforward. Just do the reverse of what you did to get it open.

Hope this helps someone!
