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

2 Answers

Brother MFC-8440 shows "manual feed" and will not feed from tray

Suddenly printer will only accept paper from manual feed. I have opened & closed the manual paper feed door several times, printed using the manual feed and reloaded the tray several times. Read through manual and looked at Help but am running out of ideas. HELP!

Thanks.
Bob

Wipe the paper feed rollers with a clean rag wetted with plain water. You can also replace the feed rollers, search for "paper feeding kit" for this printer. Should be $20 to $30.

Brother mfc-7420 printer - manual feed instead of automatic

you probably had a document that was not using 8.5 x 11 paper or the print settings were the printer to use the manual tray.

thanks adi

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.

Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer Paper jam How do I correct this? There is no paper along any pathway!!


does it ever reset by opening and closing front door? if not, there could be paper stuck in fusing area behind rear door. open and inspect. if you see no paper, pull drum unit out and locate open slot in the bottom, center of drum unit. could be a small scrap of paper in that slot.
