Brother MFC-8840d ADF feed problem

The paper is feeding past the spring loaded plate that holds the paper to the scan window but then catches and jambs as it enters the return slot. If we add a little pressure to the top of the copier lid it often will work. The lid does not seem to sit level - it is slightly higher at the back then the front. We just replaced the back left hinge - the feed problem seemed to appear simultaneously with the broken hinge.

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.

How to load photo paper in paper tray canon mg5220


For front or front tray loading printers, shiny side down... for rear/back loading printers.., shiny side up. Pictures should be visible coming out of the exit slot. Using pre-cut photo paper requires some technique, if the paper holder does not have an adjustable paper width feature. Feed paper in one sheet at a time to prevent jambs.

Just want to get a new roll of paper to feed in


Simply press down on the spring loaded button above the F1 key on the right side of the unit, next to where the paper feeds out of its slot - you may see the symbol of a roll of paper and a right arrow. Then after you open the new roll of paper, just place it into the cavity with the end of the roll coming out from underneath the roll itself, towards the serrated cutting blade, leaving a small amount of paper (2-3") sticking out of the top of unit. Now close the lid until you hear it click closed, and the button you pressed to begin with has returned to its 'up' position. Your paper is loaded and you may resume normal operations.

Paper feed not straight, causing jambing


You need to look inside the slot where the paper is loaded with a flashlight and small mirror. Usually the only reason that happens is when something has fallen in where the paper goes. I usually find pins, paper clips, candy wrappers, or jewelry dropped inside. A paper clip straightened out can help remove the objects.

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

MY lexmark printers keeps giveng me an error that the machine is jammed or out of paper but is not the paper even has the tendency to catch and go down at an angle and this is not letting me print anything


  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Loading paper


The entry point is on the back bottom of the machine. Cut your paper into a shallow triangle w/a slight point in the middle. Guide it through the slot on the back, and then lift that point up so that it goes into an almost invisible opening with small silver metal tabs on either side. The paper will want to feed underneath the entire black plastic mechanism, but don't let it. As the instructions indicate, the paper does not actually feed "under the black plastic plate", but through it. After you manage to insert the point of your paper through the correct slot, make sure the entire edge of the paper actually enters so it is grabbed when you push "Feed."

Saying that paper is stuck


Open the back door under the rear feed-in slot and check for distorted paper there.
I reuse the backside of lots of paper so sometimes get it jambed up back there.

Loading paper


Hi, I had the same problem...but I fixed it. Here's how: At the very back of the calculater under the paper roller there is a very thin horizontal slot. Insert the tip of the paper roll into the slot, then press the paper advance button located on the top left hand sidw of the calculator until you see the paper. Guide the paper through the top slot and voila.

Loading printer paper


Where I was guiding the paper, after feeding the paper through the back of the machine (the slot is located on the outside of the back of the machine), the paper naturally wanted to enter underneath the black plastic plate where it would end up underneath the entire printing mechanism. As the instructions indicate, the paper does not actually feed "under the black plastic plate", it should feed through it. There are two rectangular silver tabs, one on each side of the proper paper entry slot. I cut the paper at a very slight angle and finally found the magic entry point. Also if you make an arrow with the paper by folding the sides, it will help guide it in that tiny silver slot. Because the machine is so tiny, that entry slot is almost invisible, except for those two silver tabs. After you manage to insert the end of the angled cut through the "invisible slot" be sure the entire edge of the paper actually enters the slot so that when you push the "Feed" button, the paper is grabbed and fished through evenly. Hope this helps somebody!
