Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Putting out extra sheets

My Brother MFC 8440D shoots out a blank sheet of paper in between every sheet that it prints. If I stick this paper back into my tray then it seems to jam it up. Also, the ADF is not working properly, I have to manually lift the lid to it to get it to pull paper through and half the time it doesn't work. Also, my row of numbers, 3, 6, 9, and the # symbol do not work at all. I press them and nothing shows up on the screen.

Do you "fan" your paper when you fill the machine? paper will adhere together, unless you " grab any corner of the fill, pull towards that same corner to allow air to get between the sheets.

How can i make double sided copies on a brother mfc 7420 printer???


The manual doesn't say it will do double sided copies. it will copy two pages to one sheet of paper or 4 pages to one sheet of paper. you will probably have to make a copy of the document and then reload the paper back into the tray. experiment with it like put it in face down or face up then which is the top of the page. you can use a marker on a blank sheet of paper to see how it prints out.
hope this helps

Brother MFC 4420C prints plain sheets of paper.


To start ensure that is not a software problem.
Go to Control Panel >> Installed Printers. Remove the printer. Install the printer again using the software disk or downloading the driver software from Brother website.
If that does not fix the problem, and the printer prints blank sheets, then it is usually a clogged printhead.
The printheads can be cleaned removing the ink carriage and soaking it in isopropyl alcohol overnight. If that does not work, then the printhead must be replaced.

Printer thinks its out of paper when its not. Displays messsage "Check Paper - Reload Paper." Have emptied and replaced paper stack several times. No visible jam. Have shut down and restarted. Still not fixed.

Paper jam light is on


Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
