Placing Originals in the Automatic Document Feeder

You can place single- or multi-page original documents in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). You can also use the ADF to scan both sides of a 2-sided document (WF-4830 Series). Make sure the originals meet the Automatic Document Feeder specifications before loading them.
Make sure your originals are not creased or folded, and do not contain holes, staples, tape, or other materials that could obstruct the feeder.
Note: To view animated instructions on how to place originals in the ADF, press the  help button and select How To > Place Originals > ADF.
Note: When originals are placed in the ADF and on the scanner glass, priority is given to the originals in the ADF.
  1. Open the ADF document support.

  2. Slide the ADF edge guide outward.

  3. Fan your stack of originals and tap them gently on a flat surface to even the edges.

  4. Insert the originals into the ADF faceup and short edge first.

    Note: Do not load originals above the arrow mark on the ADF edge guide.
    The ADF icon on the Copy, Scan, and Fax screens lights up.
  5. Slide the ADF edge guide against the originals, but not too tightly.
