Question about Brother MFC 3820CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Broken Hinges I have a Like new MFC-3820CN. The hinges, both sides, have broken. And after a close inspection, I really can not understand, HOW THEY WOUL NOT BREAK. So here is my question. Where can a person in California obtain new hinges? Is this thing now junk? I mean if it has pronted 30 sheets of paper I would be surprised.

    I have started down both paths. Super Glue did not hold. And a scrap one is more than I wish to pay. Next time, its HP I think.

    I have the same problem. The hinges pieces are attached to each other with a stupidly small loop of plastic. I know someone with a model 3420CN. Same problem.



    I'm tossing both Pieces of S... in the garbage. I won't be buying anything with the name Brother on it, ever again.

I removed the hinges and drilled the flat end of them with a half inch drill. There is a spring inside that needs to be removed. It works fine now, except that the lid needs to be propped open when changing ink ( I use a plastic chop stick for this purpose).

Repair hinges with super glue or fabricate something but parts of this nature are out- no way Look for one somewhere that has expired for other reasons and acquire the scrap for parts

Oven door will not close the whole way


Your oven door hinges(s) are broken, the springs that hold the door closed inside the hinges are either weakened or their mounting points have become worn.
You need to purchase a pair or replacement hinges which you can fit yourself if you have some basic mechanical skill. Don't try to just replace one side if you determine which side has failed as the extra strain put on the old hinge can cause the door to twist and break the door.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

Door doesn't close tightly and sometimes the light stays on. Can I tighten the springs?


One of both of the springs are probably off or broken. Slide it out and inspect the hinges and springs which are at the bottom of the door. The springs hook to the hinge and the base of the oven farther back. You may have to remove the side cover.

Broken nintendo ds lite hinge. Do I send it away for repairs or get a new console?


Nintendo will fix the hinges depending on a few things, first thing would be to determine how the hinges were broken. The hinges are tested before they leave the factory, the only way that they actually break would be because of physical damage/impact. Physical damage is not covered under the manufact warranty so you would get a discounted price depending on if your under warranty or not. Regardless giving them a call and having their techs fix them will be the best bet, not only because you know it will be fixed right and your warranty will start over the day it gets repaired.

I had the same problem with mine. Lift the top scanner, and check the hinges on the left. That error message means that the little black sensor on the left next to the hinges is not meeting flat with the unit when closed. Hold the sensor in for a few seconds, and your printer will start working properly.
