Please check all sensor arms in the document feeder. The sensor arm in the middle just below the separation pad is called 'paper end sensor'. If this sensor arm is blocked or broken the scanner don't stop the feeder.
Another possibility is a driver error.

Scanner out of paper

please check if all paper sensor arms are present and not blocked.
Sometimes on of then will be missing or broken.
The center sensor just below the separation pad is the paper end sensor. If this sensor don't work, the scanner do not stop feeding.
It means you scan on sheet, the scanner eject it and then the feed motor do not stop because the paper end sensor don't record a paper end.
Another case may be a driver error. In case you are using XP and installed a new service pack please check your SCSI driver versions (ASPI32 and so on) and TWAIN resp. ISIS driver and update them.

ADF Peripheral cover open M4097D problem

This may help:
I don't have a Fujitsu, but a M/F is a M/F, all fairly similar.
On my SAMSUNG CLX-3170FN, I lifted the ADF cover, which is the smaller cover on top of the ADF, found a small black wedge-shape plastic arm which protrudes through the center, upwards.
As this peripheral ie, envelope / postcard / non-standard stationery cover is lowered, it pushes this arm to activate a limit switch, hidden under plastic of ADF.
If the cover is looseor not properly closed, the gearing and roller-feed mechanism can't push paper through, so causing an error.
The reason it refuses to scan is probably a cover not pushed down, or the sensor limit-switch misbehaving.
Renewing the limit should be fairly simple, if similar to mine.
1: Raise the peripheral cover.
2: Loosen 4 screws holding peripheral base-plate.
3: Switch is visible.

The scanner's paper sensor may be jammed. IT is sensint there is paper and hence scanning!. Try and fix it. Sensor may be optical or mechanical. If optical remove shreds of paper or dust. If mechanical ensure it moves forward and backward.
