Brother dcp 8045d paper jammed - there's no paper!!

Hi there, my Brother DCP 8045D seems to go crazy and i can't use it anymore. It says paper Jammed, open the door and remove the jam but there's NO paper ANYWHERE, and i looked...
There's an orange bar an the back of the printer that you can view by opening the back door and slide a black plastic part that will open up on this orange soft bar. I don't know what it is for but it look like someone has used paper with staples as it is kind of bumpy and scratchy in some place.

What can i do?

You can replaced scratched part at authorized service)))
If you have error "paper jam" and cannot find paper in your DCP, you must manually recheck all (!) (4 items) paper sensors ))))
I think that a paper sensor at fuser section damaged))))

How do I reset dcp-8045d hex dump mode

Probably the easiest way to turn off the Hex Dump mode would be to reset all printer settings. There should be a reset menu that will allow you to reset the printer to factory defaults. After which it should recognize the new ram and print normally.

The drum error can be cleared by opening the front door and pressing either the options or menu button. It will ask if it's a new drum and you press 1 for yes. Your paper jam error you will have to look where it's jamming and remove scraps, without seeing it myself I can't tell you what to do to fix it.

Dcp 8045D laser printer error say doc cover open, I don't no what is a doc cover, and the manule the machine came with can't be found

The document cover (or lid) is the large part that you pull up (open) when you want to scan a single page using the "flatbed" part of the scanner instead of the automatic document feeder (AFD).

There may be something under the lid that is holding it up slightly open.

Lift the lid and close it...
It should work, now.

If NOT, Turn OFF, unplug from outlet, wait a few minutes and plug back in.

Hope this helps!
