Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

There may be something stuck in the ADF, e.g. a paperclip or staple or torn piece of paper.

Have you opened it up and checked for any blockages?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have. The unit will run paper through the ADF in copy mode just fine but for some reason will not scan.

What paper size are you trying to scan?

Have you checked the scan options and settings?
