Open that back cover, and you'll see another, black plastic plate that also can be pulled to swing down. Running across that plate is a skinny black rod. At the right-hand end (when you're peering in the back of the machine) it has a couple of right-angle bends, ending in a vane that should swing through a curved slot in the side wall inside the machine. That vane interrupts a sensor to tell the machine that the door is open or that paper is jammed in the back. Sometimes it gets bent with the vane outside the curved slot. Gently bend it enough to drop it into the slot, close everything up, and try it out.

Back cover open message although cover is closed


Open the top and back covers. If you see any jammed paper or
other item, gently pull it out, then close the covers. If the error message
remains, open and close the covers again. If the FAX/MFC cannot reset
itself and return to the date and time prompt, it will display MACHINE
ERROR XX. Please call Brother Customer Service

Back Cover Open Close The Back Cover Is Message I'm getting. What is the Problem?


Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner(cartridge).

There should be a paperjam in the machine. It reads back cover open because the piece of paper is covering the sensor for the back cover.

Jammed paper


There are 3 places to check for jammed paper.

Turn off the fax machine, then remove the tray and open the back cover, and open the front cover to remove the drum and toner (cartridge) and look inside machine.

After you find the jammed paper put the cartridge and tray back in machine and close all the covers.

Error message should go away.
