Re: paper feed problem

Hi Busy boy: You need to remove the scanner unit then the top cover which underneathe the scanner. The screw that hold it down are regular No2 philips/pozzi. If you are struggling, go to nad get yourself a service manual. This will show the exact location of all the screws and tabs you need to find to get the cover off. You also have to remove some cables to get the scanner unit off so you can get to the ASF assembly.

  1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.

  1. Fan the stack of paper well to avoid paper jams and misfeeds.

  1. Gently insert the paper into the paper tray print side face down and the leading edge (top of the paper) in first. The paper should be flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. Be sure you do not push the paper in too far as it may lift at the end of the tray and cause feed problems.

  1. Clean the paper pick-up roller

    NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.

    3. Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.
    4. Re-connect the power cord.

  3. Make sure that you use paper that meets our specifications.
    To see the detail of the specifications, refer to the User's Guide. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.

Cannot find jammed paper. How do I remove print head of Brother MFC-620CN? Removing back cover does not reveal any jammed paper.

Very often a small object like a coin or paperclip has fallen into the machine. The sensors interpret this as a paper jam. Can you lift or tilt the machine to try and dislodge the object?

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blank pages


I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.

To resolve this issue, please follow the steps listed below:

Paper jam on the ouy feed roolers

outfeed? u mean the fixing assembly?? where the paper gets warmed?? u need to unmount the panel, open the cartridge cover and unscrew. the slide panel and carefully unplugged the flat cable.
then you need to remove the platten glass. remove left small cover and then remove platten glass. remove the black cover besides the scanner. now remove the left covers, all of them, and unplug the fixing assembly. they are at least two connectors that go right to the power supply board. now you need to unscrew the fixing assembly, see the top of the recently uncover top, you must see two holes, thru them you should see screws, two on one side and one on the other, unscrew them, and then you will finallly release the fixing assembly. now that you got it out remove the plastic cover if it's there and then remove the two screws that has one on each side, now rmeove the metallic cover, you may need to unlock a little metal locks on the sides, push or pull depending situation and then finally free the unit from its cover. at this point you must be really able to remove all the jammed paper. clean up with pressurized air if possible. now that is paper free you need to mount everything back as original. good luck!!

Getting a 290.01 error on lexmark x644e

This is fairly common issue. Usually this is just a problem with the pick rollers position on the enganging tab.
So open top cover where the feed rollers are. Follow the shaft of the pick rollers to the front of printer. You should see a CLAER tab somewhere. It is supposed to sit on TOP of the WHITE engaging tab but more than likely is under it. Take something small & flat like a key or small flat head screw driver. PUSH the WHITE tab down which will aloow the CLEAR tab of the pick rollers to move up into the correct position. Close the cover. You should NOT have to power cycle the unit.
The cause for this is usually someone either over stacking paper or leaving a staple on the paper.

Brother MFC-240C Error 30/50

The problem with this machine is that you need to take off the top tilting cover, then remove several screws to take off the lower top cover. The print head is then visible. If you don't have experience, I wouldn't recommend it. You can ship it to me if you like. We are a Brother service center for 18 years. I'm in CT.

I would need more information for this fault. Your "question" is very criptic.

Are you getting a paperjam error, or is the machine not picking up the recording paper or the document feed?

Did you have a paper jam and clear it, but not all of the paper came out? If so, unplug the machine and open the upper cover. On the right you should see the print head under the top cover (you may need a light). See if you can grab the head and move it. If you can move it then it's not locked. This usually means the machine has a clump of wadded up paper stuck in it somewhere. This paper is usually on the right side between the head and the outer case. You might be able to see it if you shine a flashlight in the area where the head goes AFTER MOVING THE HEAD to the left. If you can see paper in the head maintenance area, you'll need tweezers or something to pull it out. If you can't see anything on the right side, look in the same area but on the left side. If you do see paper on the left side, be careful not to damage the encoding wheel while you're trying to remove the paper.

If this doesn't help, please provide more information.
