SOURCE: How to replace Hinge assembly of Automatic Document Feeder

You can try to get a hinge @ a local authorized brother dealer. I just got mine for 20 bucks, I think that the guy ripped me off, but I needed. Once you get it, it is very easy to replace. 1St, replace the old one by removing the screw in the back of the hinge (back of printer). then pretend that you are lifting the whole automatic feeder up. At this point you will see the right hinge looks likeit it coming out. Don't pull it out completely. Just pull it enough that you can flip the feeder enought so you can uncrew the 3 screw attached to the feeder. Once you remove the broken part, install the new hinge. make sure that you screw hinge first before you slip it down to the bottom hole then screw the hinge to prevent it from moving.
PS: try not to flip the feeder too far back
good luck

Brother DCP8020D Document Feeder


Clean rubber rollers with metho, run a page by hand of laminate or stiff card threw the doc feeder. Stick it where the paper comes out of DF and ensure path is clear.

Push down on left side or tape down little black switch (rear left corner near glass)while trying to use df to confirm hinge aint the issue

If it is the rollers it should feed when paper is "helped a little" with hand at feed time

Ensure prints ok when using glass instead of df to know it is df problem

Brother MFC 8420-- hinge?


i went to Brother site and opened support.
searched for parts and got a listing of technical support shops in my area. called the first one listed and asked if they had the LP2403001 hinge in stock and they came back with an affirmative answer. will pick it up this afternoon locally.
You can see an image of the hinge assembly at ebay if you search for LP2403001.

Brother MFC 8440


on one rear corner is a cover held on by one screw, this opens up the compartment that has all the connections from top unit to bottom, there are scewered in earth cables about 8 plugs, two ribbon cables, all need to be removed, some go on to a board hidden by a h shaped plate, so unscrew that as well, some also go to a larger board below corner, side of machine slides back, to reveal another metal box that two more screws to open.

Once all cables are detached and you noticed which one went where, take pics! Two screws come off the posts that secure adf to scanner then whole unit slides up and off.

Becarefull to get all cables reattached and in correct sockets

If you just go for it and pull apart the wrecked machine and reomve its adf then you know you are ok to attack the good one

I need a new ADF (automatic document feeder), where can I get one?


ADF can be bought from a dealer, it has a few cables that need removal so it is a little tricky, it is also a expensive part (approx Aus$200, why are you replacing it, are you sure you dont just need to clean feed rollers or there is also another common fault on these doc feeders, the left side hinge breaks( replace hinge)

 

here is the brother part number for the adf (complete), you will need to purchase from a autherised brother dealer -

Brother MFC-8440 Doc. Cover Open Error Message


I had the same problem, found your site and all of your suggestions. I ordered the same left hinge assembly from Vance Baldwin Electronics
Part #LP2403001 for $11.03, shipping from FL to OK was $9.23 UPS, so less than $20 and my MFC-8440 is working again! I did have difficulty placing the screws without a second pair of hands so have someone help you hold the lid. Make sure you removed the set ***** from at least the back of the left hinge assembly so that you can remove the "case" that holds the springs and sticky white parts. (Yes, I am a girl) :-). My husband will be so suprised when he gets home and sees that it works now because it was on his honey do list this weekend. Also, make sure that you replace the set screws and clean the scanner appropriately before use. I really like this site, it saved me a lot of money this time. Take Care!
