You can try applying belt dressing to the rubber wheels that pick up the paper. It comes from an auto parts store, and is made to apply to the fan and generator belts of automobiles, to stop them from slipping. You may have to reapply it every few months.

Print unable 32 messege

If no paper or label has been found after thoroughly following the troubleshooting steps, it is most likely a mechanical problem. In my case, it was the solonoid. I phoned Brother customer support and they referred me to my local authorized Brother repair shop who replaced the solonoid in less than 24 hours for $98.

How to remove a paper jam brother printer

You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

We haven't been using this long and it has been great, suddenly getting an error -load paper in the MP tray? out of the blue

Most probably either someone requested manual feed, or someone tried to print a document, which has a different page size that usual (or perhaps envelopes or something), so it is asking for this special-size media to be fed into the manual/multipurpose tray.

Just put some paper in the MPT and investigate whose documents require this special atention, and perhaps find out why is this person sending non-standard print jobs.

I replaced my waste toner box in Nov 09, ever since then at times (most of the time)my Brother DCP-9040 CN Printer keeps saying no waste toner box, and it won't print. There is one in it, I know cause I...

Make sure the box is in the unit correctly and is completely seated in its holder. Either one of these could result in the unit not recognizing that you have replaced the bottle.

Envelopes are getting wrinkled when run through the Brother DCP 9040CN. How can I prevent them?

Unfortunately when feeding envelopes it is quite common for them to wrinkle a little simply because of the way envelopes are folded. The paper is thicker in certain areas because of the folded paper and the glue that holds the envelope together. You could try different brands of envelopes some don't wrinkle as bad as others but in my 37 plus years of working on copiers and printers I have never seen any envelopes that won't wrinkle a little, you may just have to live with it.
