Placing Originals in the Automatic Document Feeder

You can place single- or multi-page original documents in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). 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.
