I'm having paper feed problems. What should I do?

    If you have problems feeding originals in your scanner, try these solutions:

    Note: Do not repeatedly scan the same photo. Scanning photos multiple times can cause the photos to stick together due to a buildup of static electricity and could potentially damage the photos.

    • If multiple photos feed at once, try the following:
      • Load only photos that meet the specifications for your scanner.
      • Wipe the back and front of the photos with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
      • Make sure the photos do not have a sticky residue on them.
      • Separate the photos to make sure they are not stuck together.
    • If multiple pages feed at once, try the following:
      • Remove the originals, fan the edges to separate the sheets, if necessary, and reload them.
      • Load fewer originals at a time.
      • Load only originals that meet the specifications for your scanner.
      • Clean inside the scanner and replace the roller assembly kit, if necessary.
      • Press the  slow mode button to slow down the scanning speed.
      • Use the optional carrier sheet for thin or folded documents.
