Loading Pages on top

HP OfficeJet PRo 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello, I need to know how many pages at one time I can load successfully on top of my printer to scan or fax?


It appears to be a very small area that won't let me put in more than five or seven and I need to scan a great deal

and want to add at least 25 at a time. Is there a way to change out the top to load more? I know how to add more

pages to a scan, but want to place more on top to walk ahead or work on computer.  I had trouble trying to load

five pages laying them a little apart.

Discussion and Additional Information


No, you cannot adjust the printer ADF to allow more pages, though certainly five pages is well within the minimum so that is the the problem.


The How-to Document explains how to use the scan option(s):

ADF might be dirty, though you did not say anything about it "sticking" or faltering so this might not be relevant.  Nonetheless, do take a look if you think there is any issue with the ADF.

Might be the wrong kind or size of paper.


For example, The ADF supports only "Plain" paper in the sizes specified in Section Supported paper sizes for your printer model.
