Question about Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Brother mfc 8440 paper tray is open about 1-1/2'' and is stuck and won't come out or go back in. There is something locking it in place. The spring-loaded paper bed is in the up position and won't move. How do I release it to get it out? Thank you.

1. I took bottom metal support bracket off, probably didn't solve issue.
2. Adjusted paper width guide, on gears, when I did that, spring loaded piece that paper lays on released, pushing down, and I was able to remove paper drawer.

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines


Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

BROTHER MFC 8440 ERROR "NO PAPER"


Check the paper tray adjustable guides inside the tray; the guides need to fit around the paper snug, when re-inserting the tray if the rear guide is back too far the paper may be shifted towards the front of the tray out of range of the paper sensor so it thinks it's out of paper. I service HP LaserJet printers and most of the time this is the problem. Hope this helps.

Paper Jam


sometimes the paper gets jam internally if the small piece of paper is just not letting the gears to move fluently this problem cad occur.for resolving this the whole printer needs to be opened and cleaned part by part.
but sometimes unplugging the printer from the main power outlet for sometime the replugging it again resolves the problem.

Hello, I have Brother printer MFC 8440.I keep getting mesaage that i have paper jam. I checked all places and there is no paper jam.How can I fix that problem?


It's possible there is still a very small scrap of paper left. If you have a can of air blow it in and try to dislodge it. If that doesn't work try to unplug it wait a minute and plug back it.

I have a brother MFC 8440


Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.
