Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently solved the grinding sound-not initializing problem. (thanks to mixitup) but after setting back up the printer there is no grinding sound but I get this paper jam error but there is no paper in the printer.
Thx infonet. Sorry for reading that you have another prob. Did you open the printer? In case yes, you might have disconnected the small plastic foil which leads the printhead (encoder strip). The foil is located paralell to the driving belt of the printhead. try to fix it in place again. Have a look at the foil (encoder strip): is it stained with ink? If yes you need a new encoder strip. If not you have to place the head on the leftside (where the three white disks are) You can pull the head up in that position and watch the encoder strip when pushing it back in place. Another reason could be that the head crashes somewhere on his cycling way: Open cover and press the two plastics by thumb (located on the other side of the arrow-knob facing to inside) to avoid : cover open message. Power up machine. watch the head cycling. Does it run the hole way from right to left side and back? Or does it stuck some where? Please write here where it stopps.
