Very commonly a broken gear on the right side of the fuser. Replace the fuser and this will fix your issue. Let me know if you need a part number and pricing.

Good luck!

It's a laser printer, so it's possible that the fuser is an issue. Is there a paper jam in the printer under the fuser?

Brother MFC-8440 Check Originals


Check original normally means that there isn't an original in to copy. If it says that when there is an original it probably means that the paper sensor is jammed in some way.

Could be a fuser gear is broken or a Toner gear is about to break. Needs TLC by a Authorized Tech.

Not printing, says check original


Can be a document feeder jam.
Also can be that you are trying to copy an odd size original that it doesn't have the paper-stock for. in that printer it can be caused by not having the paper trays set correctly or using the menu to force it to try printing on something like legal size paper when it only has 8.5/11
Try resetting the printer with a power off and make sure the paper try is set to 8.5/11

Brother mfc8440 clicking sounds while printing


I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.

Brother mfc 8440 "printing" problems


Hi
I recently had this problem - tested fuser and all sensors.
The fix is to reset the memory.
To do this, enter the Maintenance mode. Menu, * 2864
(enter the number quickly)
then type 01 ( zero one ), this will reset all memory including the user settings.
Finally type 99 to exit Maintenance mode.
The printer will restart and the error will be gone. Test out with copy and printer reports
Hoping this fixes your problem
Regards
Lindsay

Printer thinks its out of paper when its not. Displays messsage "Check Paper - Reload Paper." Have emptied and replaced paper stack several times. No visible jam. Have shut down and restarted. Still not fixed.
