Question about Brother MFC-9420CN All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Mfc-9420cn Hello, I have a mcf-9420cn that will not always print. It starts up and keeps cycling forever. It sounds as if it is warming (the normal clunking etc) starts to wind down and then repeats over and over. I am not sure where to even begin since it does not give any error messages. thanks

I have had my MFC-9420CN for about 4 years. For

mrbarbazza, I feel your pain. I have had a Brother MFC-9420CN for just under 4 years now and for the past 4 months or so, I have been randomly getting the "Paper Jam A1" error. It is particularly annoying when printing or copying a multiple page document and the error occurs on page 3, for example. I pull out the paper tray only to find a perfectly good, undamaged piece of paper that has been half (or less) fed out of the tray which comes out with the tray; it is not even stuck in the printer. I put it back in place in the tray, reinsert the tray into the printer, wait for the printer to go through all kinds of gyrations after which I either have to start the entire print job all over again, or the printer does it on its own. Very rarely will it pick up where it left off. The really frustrating part is, during this next printing, it will get to maybe page 7 out of 10 and the same thing happens. I go through the whole process as does the machine and the whole print job has to start all over again. The last 20 page document that I was copying required all of my restraint to keep me from throwing the whole printer out of my second story window. Now I just print or copy one page at a time and even then I still randomly get the error; there is no rhyme or reason to it. The web is full of several other problems that this multi-function machine has, none of which I have experienced. Your post is the first thing I've seen that even mentions this problem that we have had. Unfortunately I have no solution to offer you. Your post helped me realize that I was not alone with this issue, so I just wanted to return the favor. If I come across any solution, I will be sure to post it here. Best of luck to you.
