Description: Issues with the paper feed could include:
  • Feeding multiple pages.
  • Misfeeds the paper.
  • Printed pages are not stacked neatly.
  • "No Paper Fed" or "Paper Jam" messages appear on the LCD.

To prevent these issues, try the following recommendations:

  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine and remove the output paper tray.


  1. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  2. Pull the paper support out and unfold the paper support flap.
  1. Fan the stack of paper well to avoid paper jams and misfeeds.

  1. Gently insert the paper into the paper tray print side face down and the leading edge (top of the paper) in first. The paper should be flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. Be sure you do not push the paper in too far as it may lift at the end of the tray and cause feed problems.

  1. Press and slide the paper guides on the sides of the paper to fit the paper width.

  1. Clean the paper pick-up roller

    NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.
    1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine.
    2. Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and remove the Jam Clear Cover (1).
    Note DO NOT place the jam clear cover face down as shown in the illustration. You may damage the cover and cause paper jam.

    1. Clean the Paper Pick-up Roller (1) with isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab.


    2. Put the Jam Clear Cover back on. Make sure the cover is set properly.


    3. Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.
    4. Re-connect the power cord.

  2. Verify there is only ONE type of paper loaded in the paper tray.
  3. Make sure that you use paper that meets our specifications.
    To see the detail of the specifications, refer to the User's Guide. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.

What's your problem?brother mfc-j6710dw paper jam

I had problem with Brother MFC-J6710DW complaining about paper jam. Went through whole paper jam procedure a few times with no avail and no visible paper jam anywhere. Found (googled) this to be a common problem for this device. Turn off / on didn't help either.
Finally ... I followed procedure to the letter, bowed possible dust away and ... pushed tray 1 all the way in. (It turned out it was not all the way in when I first started troubleshooting, and was pushed to the same inadequate position subsequently.)
This MFC is low-cost. Meaning it has few sensors, and subsequently is not very precise reporting errors.
Remember: "paper jam" alert may mean something not on exact place it should be, with this otherwise (so far) good value for money MFC.

Hello, I have a Brother MFC-640CW that show a paper jam error message, but no paper jam in the printer. I have inspected the printer and can't find anything, how can I clear the error message, or repair...

You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.

With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.
