    Same issue. Printing stops half way and then a paper jam error comes up. I remove the half printed paper and the next page jams up - the same thing. It does not seem to be able to pull the paper through.

We looked everywhere for a piece of paper stuck in the machine and couldn't find it. We finally fixed the problem by moving the paper size adjuster in the paper try until it was right up against the paper. If the paper is free to move around in the tray, apparently the machine sees that as a paper jam.

If it's printing partially, and not getting folded, then you might have a broken/bad paper sensor. When the unit doesn't sense the paper traveling through, it automatically reports a jam has occurred.

Open the rear cover and examine that area very carefully. if paper gets hidden, thats usually the area.

Please advise what you charge for solving following problem:\r\n"Paper jam on Brother MFC-260C:Following Brother User's Guide, I removed the Jam Clear Cover, and pulled out jammed paper, but got only...


1. Unplug machines power cord from the power outlet. 2. Lift the scanner cover using the plastic tabs, located on the left and right side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position. 4c89ecbe03c0173ae1000000cd8620c6.gif 3. Remove all of the paper scraps stuck inside the machine. NOTE: The print head can be moved manually with hand to assist with removing all of the paper scraps. 4c89ed1103c0173ae1000000cd8620c6.gif

4. Turn the machine around and open the Jam Clear Cover (1). Look inside the machine and remove any jammed paper. Then close the Jam Clear Cover (1).

7. Place one of your hands under the LCD unit and into the opening of where the paper tray was.

8. Using your hand, lift the front of the machine approximately 6 inches off the surface.

9. Look inside the tray areas roof of the machine and you should see a row of black rollers. See picture below.

4c899f921aad6d37e1000000cd8620c6.jpg

10. Look in-between each of the black rollers for a piece of stuck scrap paper. (A flash light may need to be used if you are having trouble locating the paper scrap).

11. Using a pair of tweezers, the paper scrap can be easily removed from the exit rollers.

12. Place the machine gently down onto the surface.

- If paper scraps were found and removed from the machine, continue to STEP 13.

- If no paper scraps were found inside the machine, the paper in the tray may be causing the issue. If the paper is slightly curled, the print head will catch the edge of the paper and tear it. To resolve the issue, the paper must be replaced.

- If you do not have replacement paper, follow the rest of this solution, after you have replaced the paper.

- If you replaced the paper, continue to STEP 13.

13. Put the paper tray back into the machine.

My Brother MFC8220 Keeps jamming the paper as it starts to enter the drum, is this a feed issue? or a Drum Issue? It appears to feed from the tray correctly, but then starts jamming as it enters the drum.


Using a cloth damp with water clean the feed roller. You will see it when you pull out the paper tray. If it starts feeding good it was a feeding prob.. If it keeps doing it look at the leading edge of the jammed paper for any signs of dings or bends. if you find any paper damage look in that area for what is causing the damage. Thank you, Steven 805-520-3003

How do I fix a paper jam? I've got paper jam around the exit roller and I can't get it out?


There should be a way to unlock one of the sides. Try taking out the toner cartridge and going in that way. If you can see the paper, get a pair of needle nose pliers and SLOWLY see if you can pull the paper out.

The fax paper can not go through, and the window turn red light said error A6


You will need to take it in for service.

Machine Error A6 is an indication of a mechanical malfunction and the unit will require servicing.

Message on brother MFC7420 "back door open" when it's not


Actually, you need to double check the back cover and front cover, open them all to check all paper jam.
Besure to check the back cover, normally all paper jam is from the back.
be sure to close the front cover at the last cover to close.

DCP 115C does not print


Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely

the manual states for this problem
"The machine has a mechanical problem.
OR
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped
paper is in the machine."
