Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

ADF (automatic document feeder) constantly jams

I have a Brother MFC 8840D. The ADF constantly jams. Should I try to replace this part? Or is there an ajustment that I can make. It would pull a few sheets of paper and then tends to speed up which appears to cause it to jam.

Cannot clear error message "Document


Hi nigel_lester,

This error message "Document in ADF" that you are getting means that you need to remove foreign object from the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Kindly follow the procedure below in clearing document jams:

Document jams in the ADF (Document Tray)

1. First, press Stop/Reset.
2. If a multi-page document is loaded, remove any documents other than the jammed page from the ADF. 3. Then, open the Feeder Cover.
4. From under the roller to the Feeder Cover side, remove the jammed page.
5. If a document is not jammed, check the document feed area if there's foreign material. If there's any, carefully remove it.
6. Close the Feeder Cover.

NOTE:
  • If documents remain in the ADF after pressing during scanning, [Document in ADF] will appear on the LCD. Press so that the remaining document is automatically fed out.
  • When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

Document jams in the ADF (inner side)

1. Press Stop/Reset.
2. If a multi-page document is loaded, remove any documents other than the jammed page from the ADF, then open the Feeder Cover.
3. Raise the paper release lever (A) then remove the jammed page from under the roller to the Feeder Cover side.
4. Open the Document Cover and pull out the document from the inner side.
5. Close the Document Cover.
6. Close the Feeder Cover.

Note: When rescanning the document after clearing the error, rescan it from the first page.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Will it be able to scan on adf


Yes, the MFC-240C can scan up to 10 pages through the automatic document feeder. Just make sure the pages you scan aren't stuck together or stapled, or they will jam.

ADF not working


Open the document feeder and look for an obstruction.

Clean the roller and pad with isopropyl alcohol.

Also look for a switch actuator trapped down or knocked off.

Jamming of paper using the Automatic Document Feeder


You may have a really tiny paper jam. You need to open up unit to get access to feeder properly. Use a torch, jams can be so small you can miss them. cheers lilacgerry

I need a new ADF (automatic document feeder), where can I get one?


ADF can be bought from a dealer, it has a few cables that need removal so it is a little tricky, it is also a expensive part (approx Aus$200, why are you replacing it, are you sure you dont just need to clean feed rollers or there is also another common fault on these doc feeders, the left side hinge breaks( replace hinge)

 

here is the brother part number for the adf (complete), you will need to purchase from a autherised brother dealer -
