Brother MFC 8440 Automatic Feed Malfunction

I am having a problem with the automatic feed tray on my brother printer. The machine will do 1 print job and then automatically revert to manual feed. The machine will no longer print unless you manually feed paper into it. I have tried to reinstall the drivers and have also looked at my settings and see no reason as to why the machine would do so. Anyone had a similar problem?.

It does sound like a paper sensor in the automatic document feeder may be stuck and the machine keeps trying to eject the paper that is not there. I have not seen this before, you may have to call Brother at 1-877-BROTHER to find the nearest service center.

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 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.
