Brother MFC 8440 Automatic Document Feeder doesent feed

When paper is put in the Automatic Document Feeder nothing happens, no movement of the wheels/drums or sound and the paper doesnt feed. When the fax number is put in and the Start button is pressed the scanner arm scans and the dialer dials. The fax and copier work fine on flat bed mode.

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

It does sound like a paper sensor in the automatic document feeder may be stuck and the machine keeps trying to eject the paper that is not there. I have not seen this before, you may have to call Brother at 1-877-BROTHER to find the nearest service center.

you might have some type of foreign debris covering the paper path, you might want to try heavier paper (almost like a thin cardboard) and try to manual drive it into the paper path, do not force it too much if it wont budge.

also try cleaning your pickup roller, lint free cloth with iso-propel alcohol.

The ADF (automatic document feeder) is not feeding


take out the paper feeder try, and look at the pickup roller.
The roller may be at the point of smooth and shining.
You need to get a roller kit

Jamming of paper using the Automatic Document Feeder


You may have a really tiny paper jam. You need to open up unit to get access to feeder properly. Use a torch, jams can be so small you can miss them. cheers lilacgerry
