Scanning issue using the feeder - MAC OSX with MF8280CW

I am unable to scan documents using the feeder on my Canon 8280, it keep erroring saying There are no originals in the feeder. Place the originals in the feeder and click OK. 


What’s strange is it only happens on my Mac OSX, my Windows workstation works just fine. 


Details of my environment:

OS: OSX 10.13.5

Print Driver: 2.0

MF Toolbox: 2.11.0
