Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Automatic paper feed

I get a paper jam when I copy using the auto feed. The paper being copied rolls down to the flat panel area instead of winding up in the tray on top. Please let me know how to fix, or do I need to take it in to a repair center?

Thank you
Steve

The narrow glass section at the left of the flat bed scanner glass is shaped concave to route the paper back up to the tray if you are using the document feeder. Right above this is a spring loaded paper guide that puts slight pressure on the paper as it is fed through. If the cover of the scanner is not closing completely it will miss guide the paper. I would check that there is nothing on the flatbed or in the hinge section that is keeping the cover lifted slightly. The hinges do extend for copying books, so it may have jammed in the up position causing your problem. Good luck!

When using the auto feed, copies come out with black streaks down center of page


If you only get streaks when using the automatic document feeder, then in most cases it is dirt on the scanner glass. You do not state model but if you can also scan flat objects, trying copying a piece of paper that way. If that copy comes out fine, then you definitely have dirty glasss, if that copy has streaks you either have dirt on the scanner itself or a faulty scanner unit.

HP Officejet J5780 All-in-one Injet prints a grey line down the right side of the page when copying using the automatic document feeder. It does not show up when printing; and it does not show up when...


lift the feed area and look at the small glass plate where the auto feed paper is actually scanned. That needs a good cleaning. Since the paper runs across it even a tiny little obstruction such as paper left from a paper jam or a dot of ink from that pen you used to unstick that last paper jam (maybe its just me??). That one dot turns into a line when the paper rolls across it. Clean well and the line will dissappear.

241.10 paper jam


Um I don't know what the other guy is saying since your paper jam has nothing to do with where he is telling to look...

From the service manual:

Error 241 subcode 10:
Page was not properly picked from tray 1.

Possible Causes:
Failure to feed possible causes include:
• Edge locking
• Worn or contaminated pick tires
• Overfilling of tray past the fill line.

Action:

Fan media.
Turn media over.
Reduce amount of media loaded in tray 1.
Replace pick tires.*

To replace pick tires:

Integrated tray autocompensator pick roll assembly removal

1. Remove the integrated tray, and look underneath the printer for the autocompensator arm. Pull the arm
down.

2. Press on the end of the tab (A) and pull the pick roll off the arm. Repeat this step for the pick roll on the other side. Next, gently release the autocompensator arm. Discard the used pick rolls.

Installation
1. Remove the new pick rolls from their packaging.
2. Pull the autocompensator arm down. Locate the recessed area on the pick roll, and align it with the tab on the arm. There are two arrows on each pick roll. Make sure the bottom arrow faces you as you align the recessed area with the tab.

3. Push the pick roll onto the arm with the tab aligned. Repeat this step on the other side to install the other pick roll.

4. Gently release the autocompensator arm. Insert, integrated tray.

Copier Jams


Sounds like feed tires are dirty or warn-out. if you can see the rubber piece that feeds the paper, Inspect if it looks dried-out or has imperfections try to clean with rubbing alcohol, use the most lint free cloth as possible. This can also happen when using office depot or staples or CHEAP PAPER These papers carry a lots of paper dust try switching paper. If none of this works the feed tires proberly will need to be replaced contact a local copier company: Chuck The Copier Guy

Landscape copies get stuck


The roller may have something stuck in that area, something even as small as a peice of paper can continue to make it jam. if not, you may have to call the company to get a repair guy in... umm... or repairGirl?

PAPER JAMS


Does the fault clear when you open/close? If it does you probably don't have a jam.
Does the machine begin to try to make copies, then stop-if so it has probably failed to feed off the tray, hence the jam message.If this is the case, pull out the paper tray, check for obstructions, clean feed rollers and try again.Are there "skid marks on the paper(indicating the rolls have turned?) If so rolls could be dirty/worn. If no skid marks, can you determine if the rolls did in fact turn? Go from there
