What you will see
The printer posts a ‘283.03 Auto document feeder (ADF) Jam’.
Here are some simple things to check should the scanner ADF frequently encounter paper jam:
- If the ADF is multi-feeding or shingle feeding, then check for dirt on the ADF separator pad, restraint pad, and ADF separator rollers.
- Check the paper guide width especially if the scanned result appeared skewed.
- Make sure the top cover is not open or ajar. Properly close the top cover if needed.
- Should the error persist, proceed with updating the printer’s firmware to:
- MX410 / MX51x / XM1140 / XM1145 – P231/E309 or the latest
- MX61x / XM3150 – P231/E311 or the latest
