I don't know how far you tore this down but usually this problem has to do with the black arm linkage that hooks to the left side of front door. if it appears to be hooked to door ok, then if you took all covers off you may have dislodged the linkage further back where it hooks to your laser shutter.

Brother MFC 8220 has a red ligth with an error message saying check paper reload paper. I put the tray correctly with papers loaded and it keeps. Cannot print, copy or fax anything


mine was doing the same thing. pull the paper tray out and there is a black lever next to the feed drum, it wouldn't move up and down. I took of the cover and slid the lever over to the left so it would move freely and now it is fine.

Cannon MF6580 fax machine says check document. i have tried everything, any suggestions?


Open the top cover of the document feeder and look inside where the paper goes into machine. There is a flag that comes loose and the machine thinks there is paper in the feeder. You have to remove the top cover carefully(just a tab on each side of the cover). After removing the cover there should be another cover on that cover remove a couple of screws and take it off. Put the flag back into its holder and put everything back together....Carefully!!!

Back cover open error message


When a jam is removed from the rear section (fuser/exit) the sensor arm (small plastic arm the sticks up) pops out of place. You need to relocate the arm mechanism so when you hit the arm (located in the centre of the black plate that comes down) so it springs back up.

Common problem in this style of machine. I can send some diagrams to help if required but may take me a couple of weeks as I'm on holidays at the moment.

Toner life end


Try this:

Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.

If that doesn't work:

Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.

remove the paper tray under the printer and then remove the metal plate they is a rod that guides the paper ensure that the spring for that rod is in place and allign that rode that should get you going. Easy hey .i checked the back of my printer and it took me a day to figure it out, it was only when i took it apart and check every component when i realized the importance or this piece of plastic rod on a spring..

Brother IntelliFax 4100 sending solid black pages


There are two possible solutions. Is the machine sitting on top of metal? The machine will send black pages when there is static charge. You can put a rubber mat under the machine or use a static guard. The second solution is to put the machine in maintenance and reset the scanner. Unplug the machine, put your finger on the menu key first and then re-plug the line while holding the menu key, in about 30 seconds all the lights will flash and the display will say maintenance. Release the menu Key and press 55 and this will reset the scanner; if scanner error comes up the machine will need to be serviced. Press stop and then 99 this will exit you out of maintenance. If the machine does not have an error try making a copy of blank sheet of paper and see if there is any improvement. As a routine clean the scanner glass with soft lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol also.
