Question about Xerox DocuMate 252 Path-Through Scanner
This is driving me crazy!!! When I scan in multiple pages at once, about half of the time the scanner excludes the first page. I can get around it sometimes by scanning the first page alone, then add the others using the add pages button. I can also sometimes get it through by scanning the first page and then stick the second page in right before the first page finishes scanning. How do I get the scanner to scan all papers if I stick all of them in the feeding tray at once? Btw, I am only putting up to 3 pages at once. Thanks for any advice!
This is not the only solution, but this might help.
Put a blank page in as the first page and see if all of your documents scan completely.
You may need to clean the ADF. Try the following:
Cleaning the Automatic Document Feeder
You may need to clean the ADF feed mechanism if your
documents do not feed easily into the ADF, or several feed in at the
To clean the ADF:
1. Dampen a soft cloth with some isopropyl rubbing alcohol
2. Press the ADF cover release on the top left of the scanner body
to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
3. Wipe the feed roller from side to side. Rotate the roller to clean
its entire surface.
4. Wipe the pad from top to bottom. Be careful not to snag the
cloth on the springs on either side of the pad.
5. Close the cover when you’re finished.
NOTE: Please be careful when cleaning the roller. The roller is
designed to rotate in one direction only. As you’re cleaning the
roller, make sure it rotates easily, and continue rotating it in that
direction while wiping it clean. Do NOT force the roller to rotate
in the opposite direction. Forcing the roller to rotate will damage
it, and may cause the scanner to feed pages incorrectly.
Please let me know if this has helped and thank you. Binary Bob
