Paper jams, white streaks

I keep getting paper jams in the back portion of my Brother. I can't find any foreign material inside. And now my printed pages have white "streaks" where there is no printing.

Mfc240 c gives unable to print see troubleshooting guide 51 I have tried all I know to do


The message Paper Jam may appear on the display if the Brother machine is not feeding paper correctly, paper scraps have become stuck in the print head path, the paper is not loaded properly in the paper tray, the jam clear cover located in the back of the machine, is not installed properly or the PE Actuator is missing or damaged.
To solve this problem, please follow the steps listed below:

Note : images shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.


  1. Disconnect the machine from the power supply.

  2. Turn the unit around and remove the Jam Clear Cover from the back of the machine by grasping it at the Center and pulling it straight away from the rear of the machine.

    20090417_91.gif



    Caution DO NOT place the jam clear cover face down as shown in the illustration. You may damage the cover and cause paper jam.



    20090417_92.gif



  3. Look for any paper scraps, jammed paper or foreign objects in the rear of the unit. If anything is found, remove it.


    20090417_93.gif


    Be careful not to touch the feed roller.


    20090417_94.gif


  4. Remove the Paper Tray from the machine.


    20090417_95.gif



  5. Remove any remaining or jammed paper from the front of the machine.


    20090417_96.gif

  6. Look inside the machine, where the paper tray was installed and locate the white PE Actuator.


Caution Do not stand the machine on end. Ink may leak from the machine.

20090417_97.gif

20090417_98.gif

The PE Actuator looks like a 2 prong fork or tuning fork and is located near the rear center of the machine where the paper tray slides in. It is located between the 2 gray rollers.

  • If the White PE Actuator is in place, continue to Step 7.

  • If the White PE Actuator is missing, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

Using both hands, use the plastic tabs on both sides of machine to lift the flat-bed scanner until it locks securely into the open position.

  • Carefully examine areas 1 and 2 at the left and right hand ends of the platen area for paper scraps.

  • These scraps may have become saturated with ink and be difficult to see.

  • Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.

I have a problem. When I turn on my printer, the first symbol from top constantly blinks and it doesn't print anything. How can I solve this issue?


Welcome to FixYa!

If the first symbol on the top is constantly blinking as shown in the picture below, It means that a paper or a foreign object has jammed your printer.

jas247_22.gif

Jam can occur in 3 areas. Please refer to the image below.
1. Internal Areas
2. Input Trays
3. The Output Bins
jas247_23.gif

To clear the jam, turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord. Be careful not to tear the paper in case of a paper jam. If a small piece of paper remains in the printer, it could cause additional paper jam.

Let's clear out the Internal Areas first. Push the button to open the print-cartridge door, and then remove the print cartridge. To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a piece of paper. Please refer to the image below.

jas247_24.gif
If jammed paper is visible, grasp it with both hands and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
jas247_25.gif
If no paper was jammed inside the print-cartridge door, open the Output Bin or the back door
of the printer. To avoid damaging the printer, do not attempt to clear a jam in the top output bin by pulling the paper straight out.
jas247_26.gif
Again, if jammed paper is visible, grasp it with both hands and slowly pull it out of the printer.
If no paper or foreign object is visible, close the back door of the printer.

Next, let's take a look at the Input Tray. (We have already taken out the print cartridge.)
Lift the Tray 1 roller cover, grasp the jammed paper or foreign object, and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
jas247_28.gif
If no jammed paper is or foreign object is visible, open Tray 2 and see if a paper is visible. Again remove it slowly with both hands. Please refer to the image below.
jas247_29.gif
Close Tray 2.
If no jammed paper is visible in the second tray area, pull down the upper media guide (we have already taken out the print cartridge). With both hands, grasp the jammed paper and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
jas247_30.gif
Close the upper media guide and return back the print cartridge. Please refer to the image below.
jas247_27.gif

These steps should clear out any jams that you are experiencing.
Connect back the power cord again and turn on your printer. You should be able to print now.

Thanks for using FixYa. Keep me posted.

Check Paper


Check paper can also sometimes mean a jam. Remove the drum unit from the machine and check for a piece of paper inside the machine.

Also with this machines feed path it can mean that a foreign object can fall down the back and obstruct the paper.
