SOURCE: Brother MFC-8840d ADF feed problem

Hi, the left hinge is spring loaded to keep the lid open. This applies a lot of pressure on the pivot point of the hinge (steel pin/plastic hinge) that elongates the plastic holes and raises the lid from the scanner. As the paper leaves the scan window, a ramp next to the scan window sends the paper up to the tray, just past that ramp under the lid is a lip that guides the paper to the tray. With the hinge stretched, the lip is too high and catches the end of the paper at the rear only, and jams the paper. If you press on the cover (with the new hinge) and it does not catch then you have installed a bad hinge. Also ensure that the top part of the hinge is on the guide pins under the cover.

SOURCE: Same problem. lid locks open. took appart.

Hey there buddy. The issue that you have is a clear hardware issue. Here are my recommendations. Is your printer still in warranty? If it is in warranty then just call hp and have them replace your unit. If it is not you can try going to best buys or walmart or any other hp partners and retailers and have them service the printer. However most likely they are just going to send the printer to hp and have it fixed there and I believe the charge will be higher. I had been an hp technical support and with hardware issue with your printer we do not recommend service or repairs, what we suggest is hardware replacement. And with your printer hp is no longer manufacturing that kind of model so i doubt if you can find any available parts for that. Here is my suggestion, if your printer is out of warranty already what you can do is call hp and ask for an upgrade. An upgrade is cheaper compared to getting a brand new printer of the same model with no difference in functionality and features. They call it upgrade because your printer is already obsolete and they are going to replace it with latest printers they have of the same family or series with your old printer. The good thing also with an upgrade printer, it will be in warranty and you will have a technical phone support and hardware support for one year. And if you decide to get another extended warranty from the same date of getting an upgrade you will get up to 70% percent on extended plans. So you decide which one best for you...

Do a search for Brother MFC-8440 on eBay and several will come up, each around $12.75.

    We don't sell or manufacture the hinge. If your printer is still under warranty, please call our technical support team to have the printer replaced. If not, it would be best to have the hinge repaired to any local computer shops near your area.

    the lid is not making proper contact with the lid switch, easy repair.
    the lid is held to the maintop with a set of hinges. The left side hinge actually doubles as the lid switch actuator. so youll need to lift the lid, and feel for the opposite end of the hinge assy. when you feel the metal "arm " for lack of better word. youll need to bend it slightly towards the back of machine( usually use a hollow shafted screwdriver) as you bend backward the lid will want to close, so apply a little pressure. Your bending the "arm" to make better contact with the switch which ismounted tothe underside of the main top assembly. Before starting open and close the lid a few times and listen for the "click" of the switch activating. then recheck after bending youll hear a big diff

    Whirlpool LSB6300PW2 Won't Agitate or Spin

    if you lift andclose the lid do you hear "clicking" noise??? i bet not. simple repair, lift the lid and with a hollow shafted screwdriver(1/4in nutdriver or similliar hollow shaft implement)you fell with your hand the bottom half of the left side lid hinge. as you open and close the lid you can fell the opposing end of hinge under the top no need to dissasemble you can fell it right there. when you find it simply slip the hollow ended shaft over the hinge and apply pressure towardds the rear of unit.While doing this the top will want to close( your pushing against the hinge).. after appling slight pressure youll bend it slightly, enough to activet the lid switch mounted to the rear of the main lid assy.

    look over the top of the control panel look straight down you see 2 phillips head screws on either side youll need to remove, the console will flip back giving you access to the switch..just for curiosity its not "clicking" when you close the lid therefore it fills and stops, doesnt spin or drain???? try this the lid all the way, the left side hinge acts as the plunger for the switch.. feel under there open and close lid a little to help find the metal hinge. after finding the hinge place a 1/4 nutdriver(doesnt matter the size just needs a hollow shaft.) over the protruding portion of the hinge. still under the top but right there! when its on push the driver back(in essence bending hte armature back slightly). itll flex a bit as you push the hinge the door will push back(you got the right spot then). after you crank it back a bit try closing the lid now. did you hear it click??? your golden!!!!!!! no need to change.. reason for telling you this is for the most part the switch doesnt go bad but the lid /hinge isnt bent enough to make contact, and over time of swinging top into the fully opened position it actually bends to far forward to make contact. i have a box full of switched that other techs ordered and weren't needed. not saying they dont go bad ive seen that, but try this first might get lucky!!!!

    Here are the steps:

    Remove and set aside the scanner cover

    With printer facing away from you, remove the screw from under the right-hand corner of the lid at the very back behind the hinge. Then remove the two (shorter) screws from the top of the lid, in the square openings.

    Turn the printer around, and carefully raise the entire lid. At this point, it is advisable to place a cloth over the printer innards, in case you drop a screw. Remove the three screws along the front of the lid, inside the round recesses, pointing upwards.

    Remove the two screws on each side of the lid, pointing upwards.

    Gently coax the dark gray cover away from the lighter gray base of the lid. It is probably easier to do this by pulling the front corners slightly outwards, and sliding a finger in between. The top of the lid should come off easily, exposing the underside of the glass.

    After cleaning, replace the cover carefully. The lid must be up, and the posts of the hinges must align with the holes at the back. In stall the two (short) screws in these locations first, then replace all the remaining longer screws.

    Good luck!!
