Re: replace document feeder
Contact a service dealer wich can be found on the brother homepage of your country. Describe the prob and ask for the price of the sparepart to be need.
It maybe cheaper to buy a 2.hand mfc in case the sparepart is too expensive!
Post here again if you decide to repair it on your own (feeder repair is quite difficult!)

"Document in ADF", usually means that there is a document in the Automatic Document Feeder. Or to put it differently, there is a paper jam in the document feeder (probably of the scanner part).
The fix is to check the feeder and clear the jam. Sometimes it indicates there is a piece of paper stuck or a faulty paper detector.
There is debris blocking the paper path in the document feeder. This could be a staple or a shard of torn paper blocking the path wedged into a tooth of the diverter arm or a sensor flag. I would suggest that if there is a small wheel or knob closest to you when you raise the document feed lid, put a piece of #28 lbs card-stock into the document feeder guides, turn the wheel/knob to pull the paper/cardstock into the ADF and continue until it either pushes the shard/debris out or stops moving the paper no matter how much you turn the wheel/knob. This will tell you where in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) the blockage is located.
The feed rollers may be worn out and need to be replaced, you can try cleaning the rollers with some alcohol, this may also make it feed better. but if it starts to act up again it might be time for new rollers.
Clearing Paper Jams If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder, a warning dialog box opens after a few moments. To clear a paper jam: 1. Press the ADF cover release on the top-left of the scanner body to open the Automatic Document Feeder cover. 2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover. To reduce the number of paper jams, smooth and straighten the paper before scanning and adjust the guides to the paper size.
This should help. Please let me know if it does. Thank you, Binary Bob
