  • He confirmed by using Scanner Flatbed and printing
  • The rollers are worn out from the ADF feeder
  • He cleaned the paper path but still comes out with a line
  • The noise is always happening and starts as soon as the ADF motors turn
  • Because of these issues and only focus ADF, we decided to recommend the ADF Assembly to take care of these issues in one shot
