imageCLASS MF455dw extremely slow to scan, cancels the job with a generic "Error"


I bought an Imageclass MF455dw and have had nothing but trouble with it (and have only owned it for one day!).

I had a lot of problems connecting with my MacBook, but finally got that set up and have been successful scanning directly from the printer via the "Computer" option.  However, half the time I try to scan, the scanner never starts feeding the document and I get an "Error" without it saying what the problem is.  I've noticed the problem more on the document feeder.  Is the scanner having issues recognizing that there's a document sitting there waiting to be scanned, or could it be a problem connecting to my computer?
