when scanning to a folder with 100 pages and the doc feed miss feeds on the 40th page where do i start scanning?? page 1 or start at where the jam took place? so to make sure i explain this correct, Do i start scan job over after clearing the jam or clear the job and start on the page where the last scan took place? Keep this in mind its a Scan Not a Copy.
ken w on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

You should clear the jam then start scanning. If the 39th page successfully scanned and the jam occurs with page 40, you should resume scanning at page 40. Once the jam message has been cleared, the machine should prompt you to input the rest of the pages to be scanned.
