A piece of paper jammed in my Brother mfc440cn printer. When i tried to remove the paper, it tore. I removed whatever was visible but, apparently, I did not get it entirely out. I cannot see the piece that is still jamming the machine. Is there any way to safely remove the part of the machine which is blocking my view?
Any other advice (besides, don't tear the paper as I remove it?
I pull paper out to remove it too, no worries, who doesn't. You may be able to open the back of the unit up and there are a few rollers there than can be manipulated. Make sure it's unplugged. Don't force too hard but a little push or pull wont hurt. Try rolling all the rollers that are in reach to see if you find anything, and they may need to be cleaned a little (not with anything wet!) with your finger is fine...they collect paper dust. You can blow in any area to try and clear any other paper dust also. Let me know if this helps.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there. And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Generally theres still a small piece stuck somewhere. Remove the back where the paper feeds through and check there. Then open the top so you can see the ink head and check around there. That should do it. The printer sometimes wont remove the jam until you open that top lid. Also try switching it on and off again just to be sure. If it's still there, the only other way is ripping it apart to find that pesky bit of paper still stuck.
If the paper tore when removing it, chances are there could be a small piece of paper still causing the paper jam. Sometimes all you need to do is turn the fax off for a few minutes and then turn it on again and the paper jam message is gone
