    MFC-8440 Left Hinge Broken - now Feeder cannot work, even attempted to -'jerry-rig'

  • bwbentz Feb 22, 2008

    We forced the lid on the ADF and hinge is stretched...problem is when it closes it doesn't depress switch so we rigged it to hit switch but paper always jams feeding through. It hits the top pad over glass and jams up.

    Will hinge replacement fix this?

    The little plastic tabs that hold the metal pin in place have broken off and the lid will not lay flat. I would like to buy a new hinge and try and fix it myself

    I have the same problem, but where are the answers at this questions?

  • holisticguy Jul 05, 2008

    Yep, the little ****** broke off like all the others as there is quite a bid of force on it from the spring. Where the lid pops up I just reach in and depress the switch to shut off the "open lid" message, but have to replace it by calling Brother service.

Very common fault most Brother dealers carry this item, any service agent should stock, ring brother and ask details of your nearest printer agent.

Brother 8820d MFC auto doc feeder does not work...


You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

Could be a sensor in the ADF, or the hinge on the left rear of the scanner cover is broken.

I can fax and copy on the glass with the Brother MFC 8440 but not through the ADF. Any suggestions?


This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!

How to replace broken hinge on ADF on Brother MFC-8820D printer


Look at back of machine and at your new hinge, note the screw hole, if you undo both of those on the back of the printer, entire doc feed will come up and out, BECAREFULL just lift A LITTLE is enough to enable hinge base to be free of sockets (many cables attached) and place doc unit slightly sideways on copy glass to enable yourself access to 3 screws that hold hinge.

I need a new ADF (automatic document feeder), where can I get one?


ADF can be bought from a dealer, it has a few cables that need removal so it is a little tricky, it is also a expensive part (approx Aus$200, why are you replacing it, are you sure you dont just need to clean feed rollers or there is also another common fault on these doc feeders, the left side hinge breaks( replace hinge)

 

here is the brother part number for the adf (complete), you will need to purchase from a autherised brother dealer -

Scanning tray not working


Check that the hinges that are on the ADF (the bit that you can lift to reveal copy glass) are not broken, the left side hinge breaks, causing the ADF switch (also on left) to not close, causing problems like yours.
