If the machine sees the ADF ( auto document feeder) but does not feed the paper? Does it try to feed the paper? Does it pull the paper is a little and jam? If the machine sees the ADF and it starts to feed the paper but jams --- clean the feed rollers/ tires with rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Also a mylar could be pulled into the paper path blocking the feeding of the paper. Take a thin piece of cardboard ( like the devider in a case of pop) and slide the cardboard about 3- 6 inches into the feed just past the feed roller. Gently pull back out and try to feed paper again. If those do not work and the machine does see the ADF, you may need switch, sensor, actuator or feed motor.

How do i get the feeder to stay up in the feed position. After it comes up it beeps and goes back down to the load position

The motor control board handle few sensor within the feeder. Check the cable telephone for proper connection. And at the very top of the feeder there is a sensor and one on the feeder itself at the bottom. If those sensor are good the problem could be the motor control board.

Please insert your originals into the automatic document feeder

Try holding the table top lid down gently while you feed it into the document feeder. It may be that it is not reading the top as closed to defer to the feeder.

Help-the paper feeder does feed the paper so the amounts print on top of each other.

If the document feeder is not feeding paper properly, the first thing I would suspect is the feed rollers ( 2 or 3 in total,) as they have the tendency to become dirty and worn. My suggestion would be to open the document feeder, take a clean rag and some general cleaner (no solvent,) and wipe down each roller as best you can. This will act to remove any trapped dirt or debris in the feed roller traction marks, and thus give you a more reliable document feeder. However, if this fails to alleviate the issue and the rollers appear worn, replacing them would be your next step.

I would suggest as a good source for printer, copier, and fax supplies.

Where is the auto feed for the copier. i have about 15 pages to copy and i do not know how to use the auto feed. thank you for your help

The question is that if the copier is equipped with an automatic document feeder or not. If you'll see on the top of your copier only a piece of plastic, most likely your copier don't have the feeder but if you see something far more complex, just put your paper there and press the Start button

Ricoh Aficio 2022 not taking pages from the document feeder

check the feed tires to see if they are smooth at all. Sometimes they need to be replaced. There is a clutch as well in the feed mechanism that could be going out as well.

Gray background on all copies

When you tried adjusting the manual adjustment to lighter did it improve? If so, you may just have to clean the optics of the copier. It is easy to do. If you want to try it? Do you have a doc feeder? Turn the copier "off" and "unplug" it from the wall. Next open the doc feeder or cover for the copyboard glass. On the left side of the copyboard glass where you line up your orginals to the sive scale. There are " 2 " small #2 phil. size screws that hold it on " most of the time silver. Unscrew the 2 of them and left up the scale plate, CAREFULLY if you have a doc feeder there will be 1 or 2 spings there. Remove the spring and the copyboard glass. Next move the optics/ mirrors SLOWLY to the RIGHT side of the copier and with a dry and clean rag wipe the 3 mirrors of dirt CAREFULLY. Once you are satified they are clean return the copyboard glass and the 2 springs if remomed and return the scale and 2 screws. Then plug the copier back in and turn " on" the optics will go back to the Right postion by themself. Next make a copy and if it better you are done, if not you may need a new OPC drum & cln blade & a developer change to solve any C.Q. problem. Call a service company at that point.

Paper feeder

Check the paper fed tracks- make sure there are no debris in the channels. Can you hear the feed system working or is it not running?
