This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!

Brother 8820d MFC auto doc feeder does not work...


You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

Faxing


How to clear the "Check Original " error message? Description: This error can occur if the document being sent or copied is not inserted properly, fed incorrectly or is too long. Follow the troubleshooting steps and recommendations listed below:
  1. Remove any paper that is not jammed from the ADF.
  2. Open the top cover by lifting the lever on the right side of the top cover.
  3. Pull the original toward the front of your fax machine.
  4. Close the top cover. Press down on both sides of the top cover until it clicks.
jam06.gifBefore placing the document(s) in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), verify the error message "CHECK ORIGINAL" no longer is displayed on the LCD. If the error message continues to appear on the display, unplug the unit for 30 seconds and then plug it back in.

Could be a sensor in the ADF, or the hinge on the left rear of the scanner cover is broken.

Brother MFC-8440 Check Originals


Check original normally means that there isn't an original in to copy. If it says that when there is an original it probably means that the paper sensor is jammed in some way.

I can fax and copy on the glass with the Brother MFC 8440 but not through the ADF. Any suggestions?


This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

Brother mfc 8440 "printing" problems


Hi
I recently had this problem - tested fuser and all sensors.
The fix is to reset the memory.
To do this, enter the Maintenance mode. Menu, * 2864
(enter the number quickly)
then type 01 ( zero one ), this will reset all memory including the user settings.
Finally type 99 to exit Maintenance mode.
The printer will restart and the error will be gone. Test out with copy and printer reports
Hoping this fixes your problem
Regards
Lindsay
