CONSTANT JAMMING I am having a problem with my MF-8860DN. It is constantly jamming. I replaced the drum and it seemed to solve the problem for about 1-1/2 days. Is there something I can do?

Just because ours is doing similar, if you've had the printer for a little while and it has likely printed out quite a few pages (around 100,000 or more) then you may need to replace the PF (paper feed) kit. The LCD should flash you a message to replace it, but in our case, we had to do some sort of test where you go to the menu and I believe I typed in "72" ... but I'd call Brother Customer Service. I had to wait about 10 minutes and although the lady at the other end was likely somewhere off shore (somewhat of an accent w/ trouble understanding certain questions) she was helpful in the end and made some decent suggestions... you just have to be patient. But if it's constant jamming and you've had the printer for a while now, I'd look into replacing the PF kit... which is what I'm doing right now. It's about a $20 part, but the service tech company here locally wants to charge $85 to switch it out, so I'm trying to find directions on how to do this myself. Hopefully by now, you've solved your problem... or maybe even moved on to a new unit.

We have hl-2170 monochrome laser printer need help for paper jam

If you are having constant jamming issues, the first thing I would check is the paper guides on the cassette. Also make sure there is no paper under the toner cartridge/ drum and in the rear door of the printer.

Almost constant jamming ...

You need to check for bits of paper which could also trigger the sensor for the paper jam error.

If you cannot find any, then try to do a quick maintenance of the printer. Clean the printer head, initiate the print head alignment utility.

If it still not solved after these, post back so that we can help you further.

Only 8 1/2 by 14 paper jamming at the DADF

Does it feed sometimes, and just jams frequently, or every single page?
Are you sure the paper size in the tray is set correctly? Otherwise for frequent or constant jams when the paper simply stays in the tray, then the feed rollers are likely worn out.

Well, it might be theres something stuck in there. Pick it up and give it a few shakes. I work on printers, and not too long ago I found a wedding ring, paperclip, banana sticker and other things in printers. If that doesn't work, try going to staples and getting a laser cleaner kit. They're basically sheets coated to pick up any paper dust, or bits of paper that might be clogging the path
