Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Brother MFC-8440. I dropped the paper tray and two small springs fell out. Now the paper stack will not pop up when the tray is pushed in and the feeder can't reach the paper..... I know these little springs go somewhere - I believe it has to do with the little plastic finger on the bottom of the tray. Is there an assembly picture somewhere on the web that can show me where these darn springs go? Thanks.....

Paper is in the feed tray, but it continues to say NO Paper??? Brother MFC-8460N any suggestions?


Could be a tab or spring broken off of the feed tray, dirty feed roller can cause that error when paper doesn't feed. Paper guide too tight so that paper can't lift to the feed roller also a possibility. Sensor above paper stack out of position.. many possibilities.

Brother Laserjet 8860dn printer not picking up/feeding paper


The paper is not feeding from the paper tray. The loud click is alarming, but not the problem. Check the adjustments in the paper tray. The left and right guides should be snug, but the rear guide should give between a 1/16 inch and a 1/8 inch of free play.

To check, press the purple lever at the right front of the tray. The leading edge of the stack of paper in th etray should rise out of the tray so that the top piece of paper can be fed into the drum assembly. If the stack does not rise evenly, or will not rise, the rear adjustment is the problem.

You can inspect the springs in the paper tray by removing the plastic cover that is above the white translucent roller in the tray. To do this turn over the tray and release the catches with a little screwdriver. I do not think there is a missing spring. While you have the cover off clean the lnt from behind the roller.

Brother mfc 8440 paper tray is open about 1-1/2'' and is stuck and won't come out or go back in. There is something locking it in place. The spring-loaded paper bed is in the up position and won't move....


1. I took bottom metal support bracket off, probably didn't solve issue.
2. Adjusted paper width guide, on gears, when I did that, spring loaded piece that paper lays on released, pushing down, and I was able to remove paper drawer.

BROTHER MFC 8440 ERROR "NO PAPER"


Check the paper tray adjustable guides inside the tray; the guides need to fit around the paper snug, when re-inserting the tray if the rear guide is back too far the paper may be shifted towards the front of the tray out of range of the paper sensor so it thinks it's out of paper. I service HP LaserJet printers and most of the time this is the problem. Hope this helps.

Hello, I have Brother printer MFC 8440.I keep getting mesaage that i have paper jam. I checked all places and there is no paper jam.How can I fix that problem?


It's possible there is still a very small scrap of paper left. If you have a can of air blow it in and try to dislodge it. If that doesn't work try to unplug it wait a minute and plug back it.

I have a brother MFC 8440


Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.

Printer thinks its out of paper when its not. Displays messsage "Check Paper - Reload Paper." Have emptied and replaced paper stack several times. No visible jam. Have shut down and restarted. Still not fixed.
