mf733cdw Doesn't detect paper in Document Feeder for Scans! Does for copies - need help!

Title says it all.

 

When I load paper into the ADF for scanning, I hear the little sound indicating that the paper is there, I go to my computer and initiate a scan, making sure it is set to feeder, and try to scan - then it cant detect that there is paper there!

 

If I select to scan from glass, no problem!

 

If I copy sheets using the feeder, no problem!

 

What the heck is going on?

Rule out problem with the printer or software. 

 

Have you tried initating ADF scanning from the printer's webserver?  Or from the printers control panel?  Does it detect paper and work when inserted there?

 

If not, the problem is with the printer, not the software. 

 

If these work (for scanning), there is probably a conflicting setting in the program you are using for the workflow (word or Acrobat) for example, or between the OS (we don't know if PC or MAC) and printer driver.
