Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

My MFC 8840 D all in one has a yellow flashing light and says Check Paper MP. I've checked every possible opening, shook the machine, changed the paper, removed and replaced the toner cartridge, turned the printer on and off, restarted the computer, all to no avail. the yellow, not red, light is flashing and it says Check Paper MP. What does MP stand for? I need my printer. It's a real workhorse, but I can't receive faxes or print anything. Please help.

Alarm/power light blinks five consecutive times


A repeating 5 orange flash is supposed to mean a foreign object inside the machine interfering with the print head. Check at both ends or the carriage track for a crumpled up wedge of paper. If nothing is there, check down the back paper feed path. If still nothing, it is possible the print head is overheating and is about to die.

Hi I have a Brother NFC-88404 Printer/fax and went to print off some address labels but it will not do so and yellow light flashing and says "check paper mp and insert paper". there is paper in the tray...


which tray is paper in? the MP tray is the manual bypass tray in front of machine. sounds like your software is setup to utilize the MP tray for the labels, which is the best thing to do.
