SOURCE: Brother DCP-7020 Drum problems

Open the front of the printer by pulling on both tabs at the finger grips on both sides of the front panel. The front panel will flip down. The drum and toner cartridge comes out as a single unit. It is black plastic within gray plastic and has a handle like grip in the middle. Grasp this grip and pull the unit up and out. It feels kinda funny the first time you do it and you may feel like it will break, but it won't. Pull it up and out in a kinda circular arc. Do not touch the drum. If you ever need to replace the toner cartridge, press on the blue tap and separate the drum from the toner cartridge. You will have to replace the drum after every five toner cartridge replacements so practice doing it now. Note the tabs and slots on the sides before separating the drum and cartridge. Align the cartridge into the drum carriage and slide it in until it clicks. To replace the cartridge assembly into the printer, angle the cartridge at about 45 degrees and rotate in while pushing. It should click into place. If the front door then closes properly, you should have it in properly. Practice a few times and you should be an expert. For paper jams, there are many places to check and they may not all give warnings. First pull out the paper tray and check for and remove misfeeds. Remove the drum cartridge assembly and described here and check for and remove any paper. Open the back cover and check for and remove any paper. Open the automatic feed and check there as well as lifting the cover where the scanning surface is. Look in the rollers for the automatic feed for paper pieces. The last place almost never gives you a warning. Reach into the slot where the paper exits after being printed and grasp the whole top cover. Lift upward and it will open about 4 inches. This is a good place where small pieces of paper or even whole sheets may get stuck. Clean out any dust while you are there.

SOURCE: My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this

Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

SOURCE: 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.

MP tray stands for MultiPurpose tray. Whatever document you are trying to print is set to print from the multipurpose tray that opens up from the front of the printer. You need to adjust this setting in your software's print settings.

SOURCE: not printing glossy A4 paper / paper jam / no paper feed

dont use thick photo paper like 230 gsm up, instead use 180 gsm papers. but if you dont want to waste the purchased thick photo papers, you can open the back and manually insert the paper once the printing process started. i tried this as a trial & error basis until i had perfected it.... hope it works with yours.

Trey 1 is giving a message out of paper when they is paper inside


The message "No Paper" will appear on the LCD display if the Brother machine does not detect paper in the paper tray(Tray#1 or Tray#2) or MP(Multi-purpose) Tray.

Resetting the Brother machine may resolve this issue. To reset the machine, unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet for approximately 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

Note

For MFC users :
The Brother machine can be powered OFF for up to 4 days without losing faxes in memory.

If the message "No Paper" continues to appear on the display follow the instructions listed below:

When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :

Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine. Go to STEP2.

When printing from MP Tray :

Go to STEP4.

Note Tray #2 is the optional LT-5300 paper tray.The MP Tray is just above the main paper tray and can be accessed by opening the MP Tray door. To open, pull on either the left or right side of the front door by the circular cut out.

2. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper guides to fit the paper size. If the back of the paper tray doesn't move, the tray lock button may be in the lock position; slide the lock button to the unlock position and pull out the back of the paper tray again. With the paper removed, you will see the LTR (letter) marking on the plastic plate on the bottom of the paper tray to indicate where the moveable rear guide (with protruding arrow) should be moved to for letter size paper. There is also a marking for legal size paper. Make sure the guides are set at the correct mark. Reload the paper in the paper tray. Make sure the moveable rear guide does NOT push tightly against the paper. It should be adjusted to the LTR (letter) or LGL (legal) position, depending on your paper size. If the moveable rear guide is pushed too tightly against the rear edge of the paper, the paper will get stuck in the tray and a loud plastic snapping noise may be heard when feeding paper.

3. Move the tray lock button to the lock position (slide the button towards the paper).

4. If there is no paper in the tray, reload the paper.

When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :

The tray can hold up to 250 sheets of 20lb paper. Do not overfill the tray. There is a maximum paper mark located on the top of the right and left paper guide. It looks like a V cut out in the plastic.

Note

If you are using special paper and the machine has problems feeding it from the paper tray, try the paper again using the manual feed tray. Make sure you insert the paper far enough --about 1 inch- under the gray plastic bar in the MP Tray until it stops or it will not be fed and the machine will display the message "No Paper".


5. Verify the correct size and type paper is being used:
When printing from Tray#1 or Tray#2 :


If you are printing from a PC and using the paper tray, make sure that MP Tray is NOT selected in the application's print properties for Paper Source.

When printing from MP Tray :

If you are printing from a PC make sure that the MP Tray is selected in the application's print properties for Paper Source.

Note: Please be aware that the setting in the printer driver will take priority over the setting made on the control panel.

14. If you have set the Tray Use settings for a particular tray, the machine will feed paper only from that tray. If the selected tray is out of paper, a "No Paper" message will appear on the LCD. You need to reload paper in that tray.
To set the Tray Use setting, follow the steps below:

a. Press Menu.

b. Press the up or down arrow key to select General Setup.

c. Press OK.

d. Press the up or down arrow key to select Tray Use.

e. Press OK.

f. Press the up or down arrow key to select the mode you want to use.
You can select Copy, Print or Fax(MFC users only).

g. Press OK.

h. Press the up or down arrow key to select the tray.
You can select Tray#1 Only, Tray#2 Only or MP Tray Only.

i. Press OK.

15. For MFC users :

To test, print the Help List.

. Press Menu.

a. Press the up or down arrow key to select Print Reports, and press OK.

b. Press the up or down arrow key to select Help List, and press OK.

c.Press Start.

For DCP users :

To test, print the User Settings.

d. Press Menu.

e. Press the up or down arrow key to select General Setup, and press OK.

f. Press the up or down arrow key to select User Settings, and press OK.

g. Press Start.

Note

If the problem still continues after following the above instructions,

I recommend you clean the Separation Roller, Pickup Roller and Separation pad following the instructions of the FAQ: My Brother machine mis-feeds paper.

When printing on my DCP-8080DN, I am getting a thick black line


Try this:
Clean the inside of the machine and the corona wire in the drum. If this does not solve your issue, replace the drum. Also, the paper tray ground terminal in the machine body may be dirty.Clean the contact with a dry cloth.

I have a Brother DCP 195c and it wouldn't take in other photo papers! I tried to print using the free brother photo paper and it's fine but when I use other inkjet glossy photo, it wouldn't take in the...


Your glossy paper is too smooth for the rubber rollers to grab it.
You need to wet the rubber rollers. Ever licked your finger in order to turn a page in a book? Same concept solution here.

Remove the paper tray. Take a look inside the space created where the tray was, and locate the rubber rollers. Lick your fingers, and use them to moisten the rubber rollers.

Reset printer and print again. Or try "un-smooth" the paper where the rollers grab it.
