Tips for Using Your ADF (Auto Document Feeder)

09/01/2023 Information 0

When used correctly, an ADF is a fantastic feature to have. It allows you to feed multiple pages into a multifunction printer, scanner, or copier, allowing you to print, copy, or scan multiple pages without having to manually insert each piece of paper. So, let’s take a look at some ADF usage tips.


While ADFs are not prone to error, there are some things you can do to avoid common errors and mistakes that are known to occur with them, such as misalignment and jamming.

Take a look below at some useful tips to help you with your ADF

  • Make sure the sheets of paper are free of any staples, clips or anything like this
  • Be sure not to put too much paper in the feeder. Each manufacturer printer may vary slightly but we’d advise not putting any more than 15 – 20 sheets maximum
  • Don’t use torn, frayed or spiralled paper that may have come from a binder. Try and make sure the edges are straight
  • Avoid using photos as there’s the potential for these to be damaged. When scanning or copying photos, use the standard scanner or copier to do this
  • Make sure your paper fits snugly against the paper width guides and the paper is not bending
