Hte back cover has a little micro switch.
open the back cover, make sure there is nothing preventing from closing tight. close the back cover tight. if you have to, use tape to secure it.

My brother mfc 7420 says that the back cover is open


When this happens it is just telling you to go through the steps of opening and closing the back cover. The back cover may not be completely closed.

Brother MFC 7220 message indicates "Close back cover". Cover is closed. Nothing seems to eliminate the problem.


Inside the back cover there is a black "rod" this is the rear sensor actuator. It should be straight with its peg fitting inside a slot on the rear cover area (and should also have a small spring on it)

The printer says back door open when its not


Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner(cartridge) There should be a paperjam in the machine. It reads back cover open because the piece of paper is covering the sensor for the back cover.

Brother MFC-7220, paper coming out like a Fan. All creased or not coming out at all and jamming at the back. Any ideas....


your fuser has gon bad or something is blocking the paper path. Open the back and look close for any objects. If nothing there you need a new fuser. Steven 805-520-3003

Mfc-7220 Back Cover Open


This one made me crazy, but I finally figured it out. Turn the machine around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down the second smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is only half the length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic tabs attached to either end of this round piece of plastic. Gently shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.
