SOURCE: Document Jam Error Message on Brother MFC-8660DN

I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-8460 and called Brother's support line. The solution that worked for me was to lift the top cover where the sheets of paper go through when you fax. On the right of the black rectangluar piece with grey roller there is a slot in the tray with a black lever inside. The black piece was stuck down inside the slot and had to be popped back out. Once it was out I hit the stop button and it was fixed!!

Get a new phone wire. Put a phone on the line and listen for static. Too many phones on one line will cause problems. If the phone line is going thru a surge protector, check the quality of the sound with it and without it, it may be damaged. Keep power wires away from phone wires, they cause static.

"Please Wait" flashes continuously. Cannot


I was wondering if you found a solution for the "please wait" flashing. Mine started doing this today, last night it played a blue-ray fine then I turned it on this morning and all it does it starts to turn on and then just flashes "please wait". Mine is also about a year and half old.

Fax automaticaly daling #365 etc like tha number how can reset my MFC 7450 printer


Found this here...

(For MFC-7420)
When you turn off the MFC's power switch its memory will be cleared. To check
whether the MFC has faxes in its memory see Checking if the MFC has faxes in
its memory on page 11-5. If there are faxes you need to save them before following
the suggestions below (See Transferring faxes to your PC on page 11-5 or
Forwarding faxes to another fax machine on page 11-5).
Turn off the MFC's power switch and then turn it on again. If the error message
continues, leave the MFC for several minutes and try it again.
Check the settings in your application software to make sure it is set up to work
with your MFC.

(For MFC-7820N)
Turn off the MFC's power switch and then turn it on again. If the error message
continues leave the MFC for several minutes and then try it again. (The MFC can
be turned off for up to 4 days without losing faxes stored in the memory.)

Looking through this manual, this is the only solution that I could find. There are options on the 7820N model in the menus that will allow you to reset the printer itself, and i quick search through the above link for "printer reset" should bring you to the menu selections for that.

My brother mfc-490cw I can't send or recieve faxes.


According to the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-490CW:
  • Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.

  • Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).

    Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.

    Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).

    Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).

  • System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.

Machine error 41


Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction with FAX/DCP/MFC.Often, unplugging the unit from the power source and then plugging it back in again can clear this error message.If the message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please contact YOUR PRINTER Customer Service for more options.

Problem with my fax Machine MFC 420CN


You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory.
1 For MFC-210C,
press Menu/Set, 2, 5.
For MFC-420CN,
press Menu/Set, 2, 6.
Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD.
2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the
job you want to cancel.
Press Menu/Set.
—OR—
If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3.
3 Press 1 to cancel.
To cancel another job go to Step 2.
—OR—
Press 2 to exit without canceling.
4 Press Stop/Exit.

That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it.
Enjoy,
Lee
