Question about Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

The ADF (automatic document feeder) is not feeding

It will not take any paper at all, whether it be for the purpose of sending a fax, or for copying single or multiple jobs.

We're having to use the flatbed whick is okay for one sheet, but for multiple sheets it is very long winded.

This is the first problem we have had since purchased in april, 2005.

Take out the paper feeder try, and look at the pickup roller.
The roller may be at the point of smooth and shining.
You need to get a roller kit

pickup a roller kit.
All instruction should be included in the kit.

Just trying to make some copies...the display on the printer says


The ADF is the "automatic Document Feeder" it thinks something is in there when there isn't. check to see if something is stuck in it that would cause it to "think" that.

Hi,

Clean the ADF rollers and pad with alcohol.

Check to see if your ADF has done over 90 000 copies and if it has, change the ADF pick up assembly only.

Good Luck

Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.

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

Top Paper Feed Won't Work


Like a worn running shoes, the paper feed roller of the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) have lost it's traction and has to be replaced or cleaned. Paper just slids and doesn't picked up properly without that little push. Professional servicers use a cleaner specifically designed for rubber rollers. However, YOU CAN get extra miles on it by dabbing a Q-tip in warm water and cleaning the paper feed roller on the ADF. Like all eletrical devices, the unit has to be turned off and unplugged before working on it. Take all precationary measures and goodluck.

Will not copy


If the paper isn't feeding in the ADF (automatic document feeder - upper paper feeder) then the ADF roller assembly will need to be replaced. Try a copy on the flat glass area. If it work, then it's the ADF, If not then the upper scanner assembly with have to be replaced.
