SOURCE: Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!

Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!

SOURCE: Bad Scan Quality Using Brother MFC-7820N Document Feeder

Look to the left side of the flatbed glass for a thin strip of glass by itself. When you scan from the glass, the document stays put and the sensor moves across the document. When you scan from the feeder, the sensor stays in that glass strip and the document moves across the sensor. See what I mean? I would check the small feeder glass for dirt or scratches from staples or other flotsam. Also not a bad idea to blow out the feeder path with some compressed air to ensure the documents is handled smoothly. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: problem paper jam printer brother no mfc-490cw

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Horizontal lines


Most lines will either come from laser cartridges, or and most likly the fuser. If you can see the fuser rollers, see if they have wear marks. If so fuser or rollers need replacing. If a multifunction copier with a top glass check the what is called slit glass(small glass where paper goes over when fed from the document feeder.

My printer showing paper jam n i cant find any paper stuck in the printer checked in n out?


Hello! Welcome to FixYa

Paper jam
means their may be small bit paper jam in side

There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Brother Printers service provider.

If you have any Confusion, questions or issues regarding your problem do tell me.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Brother mfc-8480dn no paper error I have a new brother laser printer and it is telling me there is "No Paper" but the paper tray has paper. I have tried removing the paper and reloading the tray...


Open the file you are trying to print, go to "file", "page setup", "Paper" and choose "Default tray" under paper source. It may give you an error message that the margins are outside of the paper. Click on "Fix this", then you can print. I had the same problem.

Original document fed into top feed tray of mfc 7440N model come out with few thin black lines on the mid left of the scanned file. Scanning file from glass has no issue.


You need to clean the narrow glass strip on the left side of the machine when you open the cover. There is likely lint or something on this glass. This is where the auto document feeder pages are "imaged".

Paper feeder


Check the paper fed tracks- make sure there are no debris in the channels. Can you hear the feed system working or is it not running?
