I have the answer. I just fixed mine. The sensor is not really on the door. You have to remove the door by openning it all the way and carefully sliding it out ( one of the pegs holding the door is hourglass shaped. This will slide out first. The other is round. You will see a black flap that covers a red drum. Pull the flap down carefully. There will be a six inch long rod it's about 1/8 of an inch in diameter. It extends from the middle of the flap all the way to the right side. This probably popped out of place. Make sure that it is all the way to the right as this is where the sensor is. There is a little spring on the bar on the left side. This should be straight up and down. if it is not, then you need to fiddle with the bar.
The trick was that the sensor is NOT on the door, but on this inner flap. When the door closes it pushes this flap agains the drum and the little bar activates the sensor.
Please do not applaud so loud, you are ambarrazing me!!! hehehe. Good luck!.

SOURCE: paper jam, and I don't
I had the same problem. I had removed all the visible paper and when it came back on made some awful noises and flashed "paper jam".
I even moved the roller forward and backward (after having uplugged the device. I did this repeatedly and the "paper jam" alert continued (along with the awful noise).
As a last resort I thought I would just take it apart and hope to get it back together but figured it was a sensor or something along that line if I could not find any paper anywhere
with the machine unplugged (it would not shut down), I opened the lid I used a flashligt to look around trying to figure out how to take it apart.
It then dawned on me that I had not moved the print head over and using a screwdriver I gently pushed it to the center of the bar. When I looked inside with a flashlight, there was the paper jam way inside under the cover.
I used some needlenose to reach in and took the paper out and it is now working fine.
I hope this helps, but you may have to search really deep into the device.

SOURCE: paper jam in brother MFC 240C
Usually small pieces of paper are jammed at the print head area. Lift up the scanner and see if you can find the paper at the print head parking area, clear the paper . If you can't find the paper, remove the scanner cables, then the scanner. You will see 2 screws at the rear and one near the USB connection. Another 3 screws towards the front will remove the front panel. Under the panel remove 4 screws and the two panel harnesses. The is a speaker harness which you must remember to attach back later (most people don't remember to put back). Lift up the top cover and you can see the whole engine. Clear any pieces of paper that might be there.
