Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Paper won't feed so can not print after a small (about 2" long x 1" wide) white plastic piece fell out o my MFC-240C but i don't know what it is and can not find a parts list on-line---any idea what this is and how i can re-attach it to get print capability back?
I have my MFC-235C (same but for LCD screen and card reader) dismantled on my table right now.
On the bottom of the printer , after I have removed the printer tray there is, from 3/4 of the way to the back of the printer, to the back of the printer, a base sheet of gray plastic.
This is shaped in a wide "V" with the apex towards the back of the printer.
In the apex of the "V" is a white plastic coomponent with 2 hooks towards the front and a flap towards the back.
It is fixed between the two grey wheels and appears to just clip onto the outsides of the black plastic fins that are on each side of the white plastic gear-wheel that is in the centre of the apex on the printer base.
You may find it easier to see how to replace it from the back of the printer. There is a shield there that is removable in case of paper jams.
The white plastic appears to have some sort of "spring" occuring. But I cant see if that is built into the white plastic component or something external.
