Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer
My 7420 was working fine until I got the famous "rear door open" error message after a paper jam. I fixed the jam. But now the router will not communicate with the printer.
I unplugged the network cable from the printer and plugged it my laptop and the router connection LED immediately lights up confirming a good connection. I reconnected the network cable to the printer and the LED goes off on the routher and stays off. A cable diagnostic test using the builtin feature of the router reports that the network cable is not plugged into anything.
I unplugged the cable from the printer and inspected the inside of the network port for bent pins. Nothing there and if I plug the cable back into my laptop the router reports the cable as fine.
This just seems wierd after a paper jam.
Any suggestions where I can go from here. Thanks.
Open the back door.
Pull down the black rear chute the exposes the fuser (opens just like the door)
In the middle you will see a black piece of plastic that is a paper sensor. In the middle of the rod that that piece is on there is a flag that sticks down through a slot. This piece is off and out of position, snap it back in so the flag is through the slot and the rod and pieces rotate freely.
That will FIXYA!
