Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Photo paper jamming.

I got my printer june 07, and a few months later it started coming up with paperjam messages when I used the photo paper, which you have to open the back, then the top etc, and only ever happened when I was trying to print a photo. Then the low on ink msg kept coming up.

Talking to someone else, they suggested that I may need new cartridges, as I had printed a few photos previously.

I didnt bother about it until after XMAS as I had a heap of photos to print.
Once I had installed the new cartridges, the low ink messages dissapeared, however I still get the same problem with the photo paper. It is the paper I bought when I got the printer, but it keeps jamming. Can print on normal paper, but photo paper just jams up.

HELP!!

    yea, I got the exact same problem, with the same machine, Brother mfc 440 with the photo paper Brother supplied me. No you are not doing anything wrong, this printer is a piece of crap. It also will not run its own scanning software. I notified brother and they just told me to check the paper tray, the usual bs. it is a defective product. they did not satisfy me on bit. I will never buy antother brother product again.

    I also have the same problem and have had it repaired by a brother authorized repair shop. It is still not feeding photo paper through. I have tried everything. I am pretty upset about this as I have always had great luck with Brother before.

I've had similar problems and solved it by putting only one piece of photo paper in cassette at a time, or better yet, put a piece of regular copy paper under the photo paper in the paper tray: My photo paper seemed to have to much friction between the sheet, as it were, becasue of the texture of the semi-glossy paper. Good luck.

You didnt tell us what phtopaper you use. Especially the weight of the paper! Brother printers are known to have probs with paper thicker then 220g. The paperfeeder cant feed the paper correctly into print position.

another reason might be that the paper isnt placed well into position. Have a look around the FAQ, too:

BTW: If you print a lot of photos it might be cheaper to do that with a (online) print shop.

Error paper jam


It is possible that there is a little peice of paper that has ripped off of the sheet that was jammed. Was the sheet whole when you removed it? If not, check the location where the paper was jammed for bits of the last sheet of paper.

Hello, Your printer makes a "grinding sound". This is usually due to two things:
1. A dirty printhead rail. It is either ink residue or dry. Try gently cleaning it with some water.
2. Paper pick up roller(s) not picking up. Clean them with a damp terry cloth towel or a multi-purpose cleaner.
If you have unable to fix it please contact me at 1800-204-4427. I can help you out.
Good luck!!

Printer epson r230 paperjam


Indikator paper jam di status monitor bisa berarti benar-benar paper jam atau carriage problem. Coba dibongkar dulu printernya, mungkin ada sesuatu yang nyangkut pada paper feeder, bersihkan sekalian paper sensor pada paper feeder. Kemungkinan kedua adalah problem pada carriage atau bisa jadi pada chip di ink tank. Coba dulu ganti chip pada ink tank dengan yang lain ( yang baru atau yang arc). Salam dari Arema

PAPER JAME CODE 13


Try looking for the jam from the rear of the printer. Also, using one of those compressed air cans, blow all the paper dust our of your printer, because the sensors usually are photo-electronic sensors, and paper dust wil register a paper jam, even when no paper is in the printer.
