Preparing documents for ADF scanning is important because proper document preparation prior to the scan can prevent paper feed errors and damages to the scanner. Before using ADF to perform scanning tasks, fan the stack of paper to loosen any sheet that may be stuck together. This is very helpful to avoid paper jams. Before loading documents into the ADF, loosen documents and fan the documents so that no two pages are sticking together. Make sure to remove static electricity from paper. Hold the documents upside down with both hands, and then gently push them onto a flat surface to align the edges of all documents. These methods will allow documents being fed into the ADF one at a time and prevent paper feeding error.
To scan multiple documents in a batch from the ADF can increase your work efficiency and make large scanning tasks easier. The ADF of the scanner accepts a variety of paper and stationery you may use in your daily work or personal life, such as: normal paper whose size and ream weight meet the scanner requirements, notched paper, coated paper (e.g., brochure).

The following suggestions can prevent paper feeding errors and damages to the ADF unit:
