Re: How do I remove the cover?
You need to open the clear plastic cover, then look in the inside of the machine and there is a clip on each side. You will have to pull twords the center of the machine to release the catch AND pull up on the outer cover. Then run your finger nail or small flat blade screwdriver between the top and bottom covers at the front of the unit (below the space bar). Lift from the front and it should come off. The inside latches can be hard to pull so may take several attempts to get it open.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Almost all door panels are attached by: SMALL PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS- these are found all around the door panel. They are normally hidden by; small plastic grommets (round, flat plastic push tabs used to cover and make it look pretty!) -remove with flat head screwdriver or your nails at-own risk, THE SPEAKER COVER- -easily popped off by squeezing outer edges inwards releasing the male part on the speaker cover from the slot on the door panel and THE RUBBER OR PLASTIC COVER- found on the inner side of the door handle -this cover may not be there for your model and you may see the screw or the grommet. If not, remove cover with flat head screw driver or needle nose plyers, then remove screw/s
Tips: 1)check for grommets if screw/s are not in plain sight)- plastic push tabs (flat head and round about a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch in diameter, normally matches the car door panel and fits flush with the panel as well so look closely! You will need a flat head screw driver for this part or try your nails at own risk.),
2) Once you have removed all the screws and or push tabs shake the panel to pin point any remaining screws or tabs. Some times there are slots in the door frame that join with the male part located on the inner side (touches the door) of the plastic panel.
Please follow the steps below on how to remove paper jams inside printers in hard-to-reach places, a pair of medical forceps is often useful.
1. Take off 3 plastic covers one above exit area-slide top to left to access screw. Remove lower exit cover and side cover -unsnaps with 2 pins and there is one more cover I think over the fan that needs to come off.
2.Locate black plastic sheet covering a circuit board carefully pull this back-disconnect 3 plastic connectors that lead from the heater to the circuit board.
3. Using a offset phillips #2 screwdriver remove 3 screws that hold the fuser to the frame.
4. Carefully lift fuser up and out toward the exit area.
5. Pop off black cover remove 2 screws from top of fuser, disengage cover lid locks with a small screwdriver, lift upper fuser heater - be careful NOT to damage plastic heater membrane. remove paper jam and reassemble.
Remove the paper tray. Turn the printer around so you are looking at the back. Open the back door and pull down, it will click and drop further than normal. Remove the two phillips screws you see. Lift up the paper tray flap at the back of printer and you will find a tab on the bottom left and right sides. Pull those slightly and pull out on the back panel. It will tilt out from the bottom first, the top of the back has a tab that locks into the top of the printer. Remove the white cover on the left side of the printer that has the cutout for the power cord. On the left side, unplug the black cable that runs from the fuser to the power supply. On the right side, disconnect the yellow wire from the fuser and release the clip that holds the yellow wire to the side of the printer. Disconnect the purple wire from the side of the printer. Remove the four screws that hold the fuser in place, three are self tapping screws that attach to plastic, one attaches to metal. Remove the paper guide that sides just behind the fuser by releasing the two plastic tabs on the back. Pull the fuser straight out. Install new fuser and reverse the above directions. Be sure to turn self tapping screws backwards until you feel the threads mate before screwing them in, this prevents stripped plastic holes.When reinstalling the back panel. put the top of the panel into the printer first and then the bottom.
You can do it yourself if equipped. First, remove the foil and cutter. Then remove the swivel frame by removing the two tine screws, Next, remove the two scew covers on the bottom. These are found on either side of the plug recepticle and look like part of the trim. You can pry them off with a small flat jewelers screwdriver or similar. Remove the screws underneath. You can then gently pry the front of the case off from th bottom. Once case is removed, you can lift out the circuit board to access the battery. For easier replacement, it is suggested that you use a modified installation technique. This is to break the tabs off of the old batteries rather than unsoldering them from the circuit board. This allows the old batteries to be removed but leaves the tabs attached to the circuit board. You can then solder the tabs from the new batteries to the old existing tabs
You will find compatible battery type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below
The paper jam you had probably lifted the long, thin, plastic encoder strip in the pathway out of its slot, giving the false indication of a paper jam. In order to put it back in its place, please carry out the following steps:
1) Lift the cover and remove the two plastic panels covering wires. Mark down the position of cables, then remove them, and remove the now-freed top scanner section entirely.
2) Remove the screws from the top plastic shell. There's two in the back and four in the front. There's also two plastic tabs in the front that must be bent aside before you can remove the top shell.
3) Gently put the encoder strip back in its plastic guide, and check if you are able to get your printer to work all right thereafter.
If you are not comfortable carrying out the steps, I would strongly suggest you to have it repaired by your local Brother service center, without causing further complications.
