Unable to print or copy Brother MFC-440CN

I am unable print, copy from this unit.  The message is Unable to print 8F.  There is no real error message given.  I do have it networked and am able to see and ping the printer.  Test print fail with the same error.  Also tried connecting locally.  Not sure if there is a more local way to see if this is still working.

Re: Unable to print or copy Brother MFC-440CN

Sorry for the very late posting of this solution. I recently had a problem with a MFC-440CN and bought a service manual. This is what is listed in the manual for this error:
Code: 8F
Symptom: The paper feed motor is being driven and cannot be stopped.
Probable Cause: Software malfunction
Solution: Open and close the scanner cover.
Unplug and plug the AC cord.
