HP Scanjet 4500c/5550c Series Scanners - Automatic Document Feeder Does not Feed Documents

Symptom

Documents do not feed automatically or jam the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) on an HP Scanjet 5550c series scanner. (The ADF is optional on the HP Scanjet 4500c series scanner).

Cause

The paper feed roller is down and does not allow a stack of papers to slide under it.
Figure : Paper stack not under paper feed roller
The paper feed roller needs to be up so a stack of papers can slide under it.

  2. Manually raise the paper feed roller and slide in a stack of papers.
