Abstract

In a copier having a recirculating automatic document feeder (RADF), a number of subsystems (air system, movable document stack table, set separator finger, etc.) are initialized to an operative condition before copying starts. If a jam subsequently occurs, in either the document feeder or the copier, the document feeder's subsystems are conditioned to be reinitialized, depending upon the type of jam that has occurred.
