Question about Brother MFC-8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Fax Signal to transfer paper to scanner appears to be non-existant when trying to fax. Copy portion works. Faxes do come in OK. Rollers on top do not turn at all so believe they are good. Just no signal to make them turn.

    Thank you for your solution. It was the hinge. I was able to see it work somewhat buy holding the left side down. I'll be replacing the hinge which I believe will fix the problem.

    I have the same problem w/ the left hinge. Actually mine broke completely. I have the new part but don't know how to install it. Also the part does not pivot at all where the pin is inserted. Shouldn't it move some?

    Hinge should have visible crack in where pin goes, very very common fault.



    There is a little black switch left rear corner near glass, that is what senses lid is closed,(hinge breaks lid stays up slightly) you can tape the switch down to use machine till hinge arrives.



    thanks for rating, so many don't bother.



    Cheers

Sounds like you're having a problem with the automatic document feeder. The scanner is continuing to scan but the paper is not advancing as it should during the first part of the infeed. Check to see if something is inside retarding the path of the scanned document. Or it could be worn rollers in the ADF.

When you send a fax, the other person only gets lines on there copy, not the paper that i faxed


Make a copy with your fax machine. If your scanner is bad you should have a similar problem making copies. The same scanner is used to make a copy as is used to scan and send a fax. If the copy comes out bad your scanner is either dirty or bad. If you can see your copy but it just has a few lines running vertically up and down the page then you need to clean the scanner glass. This is a small strip of glass in the port where you feed it your originals.
Good Luck

Fax T 104, can recieve but not send. Can hear the fax signal fro


When you hear the fax signal press the start button on your machine. If this does not work attempt to just make a copy of a document without sending to test the document feeder - help the document by gently pushing the document into the machine when it should be feeding. If you can feel the machine trying to grab it but it doesn't have enough strentgh or it will feed with your help then the feed rollers are probably dirty and you may be able to open up the top cover and clean the rubber rollers with alcohol or degreaser. If the feed rollers do not even turn when trying to make a copy then you may have a motor, belt or clutch problem. If it copies well but will not send, then you will probably have a modem or fax lead problem. Try a new fax lead.

We have a Brother FAX-1840c. It will jam feeding paper into the scanner. I maintenance mode it returns an A1 error code. Feed rollers look serviceable and the pressure pad is clean. Stops half way thru...


Hi
There must be some torn paper or something stuck in the Paper feed. You will need to ope the upper face portion by pulling it, and then look for papers/ dirt / pins there, you can either clean it by blowing air or use a blower, or if you can see the particle. Try feeding the paper, it should be ok.

Document sent is blank for recipient


Hi there check the machine scanner light by putting the original in the feeder and doing a copy. If the printout comes out OK then it either could be the other fax machine you are trying to send it to or you have a intermittent fault with your scanning lamp (Section).

You also must make sure that the original is text face down.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
