    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.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?


Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    Brother fax 2920 error message displaying "rear door open" door is firmly closed , fax still showing error message ?


    Look very carefully at the area, Most likly there is a sensor not being flaged. So check for any broken plastic tabs or it just my be an adjustment were a sensor was bent back or pushed out of place on a jam removal.

    Jammed paper


    There are 3 places to check for jammed paper.

    Turn off the fax machine, then remove the tray and open the back cover, and open the front cover to remove the drum and toner (cartridge) and look inside machine.

    After you find the jammed paper put the cartridge and tray back in machine and close all the covers.

    Error message should go away.

    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.

    See this link on the Brother website:

    Check Paper


    Check paper can also sometimes mean a jam. Remove the drum unit from the machine and check for a piece of paper inside the machine.

    Also with this machines feed path it can mean that a foreign object can fall down the back and obstruct the paper.

    Brother 4100e paper jam


    Can be tricky people usally damage the fuser rollers removing this jam with pliers/tweezers, it has concertined and stuck after fuser rollers and before exit rollers it will be stuck on the switch best bet is to dismantle properly and remove fuser then dismantle fuser and remove jam, another thing to be concerned about is why did it, three seneraros, Damp paper going threw fuser dries and crincles(use fresh paper from sealed packet), fuser is worn(have fuser replaced), just a bad bit of paper (just have fuser jam removed. Fusrr runs on 240v, covers break easy
