It is very likely that the error message is referring to "no paper" in the MP Tray (Multi-purpose tray). This is the flip out piece on the front of the printer for envelopes and such. If you open this tray and feed a page through, you should see that this is where your printer is trying to print from. So, why does it try to print from the MP Tray? This is a setting you can adjust before printing in the print window. When the print window comes up, click "properties". Then poke around and you should find a place to change the tray it is printing to. I hope this helps!

Check the paper tray adjustable guides inside the tray; the guides need to fit around the paper snug, when re-inserting the tray if the rear guide is back too far the paper may be shifted towards the front of the tray out of range of the paper sensor so it thinks it's out of paper. I service HP LaserJet printers and most of the time this is the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines


Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

Brother mfc 8440 paper tray is open about 1-1/2'' and is stuck and won't come out or go back in. There is something locking it in place. The spring-loaded paper bed is in the up position and won't move....


1. I took bottom metal support bracket off, probably didn't solve issue.
2. Adjusted paper width guide, on gears, when I did that, spring loaded piece that paper lays on released, pushing down, and I was able to remove paper drawer.

Brother MFC-8440 Check Originals


Check original normally means that there isn't an original in to copy. If it says that when there is an original it probably means that the paper sensor is jammed in some way.

Try adjusting your paper tray. If you have the tray that adjusts from legal to letter it sometimes gets wiggled to some place inbetween. Just push it back into the letter position.

Paper Jam


sometimes the paper gets jam internally if the small piece of paper is just not letting the gears to move fluently this problem cad occur.for resolving this the whole printer needs to be opened and cleaned part by part.
but sometimes unplugging the printer from the main power outlet for sometime the replugging it again resolves the problem.

Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.
