Scanner feed tray grabbing two pages

Product Name: Scanjet pro 2000 S1
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

my new scanjet 2000 is grabbing two pages at a time. Is there some way to adjust the feed mechanism so this does not happen?

I do not believe you can adjust the mechanism in the scanner.


The following documents from your scanner Troubleshooting Section may be relevant:

Readiris Pro software does not detect a misfeed error messageSupport InformationSep 30, 2016


The information is worth reading; obviously brand new equipment should not be dirty so you can likely ignore the advice to clean the scanner.  (However,) you might check to ensure all the packaging bits are actually removed.  A tiny bit of paper or tape can cause havoc.




Paper:  Double-check the paper to ensure the paper weight falls within the allowed specifications:


Minimum paper weight
2000 s1:50 g/m2
3000 s3:40 g/m2
Maximum paper weight
2000 s1:180 g/m2
3000 s3:413 g/m2
