Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper jam and subsequent printing trouble

I was printing an order confirmation from my email when the paper suddently got sucked back into my Brother 240C All-In-One.  A paper jam notice came up.  I removed the back cover and removed as much paper as possible.  Next I lifted the top and removed the rest.  Since that time, I'm unable to make a clear copy of anything.  It comes out "shadowed," like two lines of print are on the same line.  I've only used this all-in-one a few times.  HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's your problem?brother mfc-j6710dw paper jam


I had problem with Brother MFC-J6710DW complaining about paper jam. Went through whole paper jam procedure a few times with no avail and no visible paper jam anywhere. Found (googled) this to be a common problem for this device. Turn off / on didn't help either.
Finally ... I followed procedure to the letter, bowed possible dust away and ... pushed tray 1 all the way in. (It turned out it was not all the way in when I first started troubleshooting, and was pushed to the same inadequate position subsequently.)
This MFC is low-cost. Meaning it has few sensors, and subsequently is not very precise reporting errors.
Remember: "paper jam" alert may mean something not on exact place it should be, with this otherwise (so far) good value for money MFC.

I have a Brother MFC 240C. After I removed paper from a paper jam the printer reads: Print unable 50. See Trouble Shooting and Routine Maintenance chapter in User's Guide. I tried to look this up on...


You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

No paper fed


I'm guessing that little piece of plastic has something to do with the paper sensor.  You may want to open that section and set it back the way it was.

Brother printer jams all the time


Be sure the paper tray is not over full and maybe even fan the paper before loading. Check all the corners that hold the paper as they are usually adjustable for different paper sizes and sometimes move or become unattached. The paper must lay flat and snugly in all places in the tray to load properly.
