    My Brother Intellifax 2820 keeps telling me the back cover is open but it's NOT! I've turned it off. I've open and closed the back cover. I've opend and closed anything that will open and close but NOTHING will satsify it! Ideas?!

    I can not get the jammed paper out of the back.
    And it keeps saying that the back cover needs to be closed.

Back cover open message although cover is closed


Open the top and back covers. If you see any jammed paper or
other item, gently pull it out, then close the covers. If the error message
remains, open and close the covers again. If the FAX/MFC cannot reset
itself and return to the date and time prompt, it will display MACHINE
ERROR XX. Please call Brother Customer Service
and tell them the Machine Error number at:
In USA:
1-800-284-4329
In Canada:
1-800-853-6660
In Montreal:

Back Cover Open Close The Back Cover Is Message I'm getting. What is the Problem?


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 IntelliFax-4100e Fax Reset drum counter


With the front cover still open, you should press Clear ("Replace Drum?" should appear on the display), and then 1 for Yes. Wait for "Accepted" message and close cover.
It may be necessary to remove the drum unit and put it back in, and then, with the cover open, do the a/m procedure.

The brother fax 2820 keeps signaling to me to close the back cover no covers are open


Open that back cover, and you'll see another, black plastic plate that also can be pulled to swing down. Running across that plate is a skinny black rod. At the right-hand end (when you're peering in the back of the machine) it has a couple of right-angle bends, ending in a vane that should swing through a curved slot in the side wall inside the machine. That vane interrupts a sensor to tell the machine that the door is open or that paper is jammed in the back. Sometimes it gets bent with the vane outside the curved slot. Gently bend it enough to drop it into the slot, close everything up, and try it out.
