Question about Brother MFC-8460N All-In-One Printer

Open Question

Same as the one posted for the MFC8460.Message "No Paper" when the tray is full. It started doing that when it was less than 6 mos old. Playing around with it, tray in and out, cleaning rollers would fix it for awhile, but it does it on and off. Very annoying!

Hi

This is unfortunately very common issue about MFC-8460N, There are few steps you can try, Set to factory default (Reset), move the roller manually so sensor will detect new position or locate the paper detector and bypass it. There are many users have been complaining regarding the issue that you have, Before try the troubleshooting that i have suggested please do call the hotline of Brotherif you have ongoing warranty. Some cases Brother accepts their fault on this known issues and provide solution (can be free of charge). As an experienced expert I suggest you to contact Brother (1-800-276-7746).

If you cannot find any resolution please post further assistance.

Good Luck

  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore. http://www.phillycopiers.com/fix/hl-2040-2070-fix.jpg

Hi tkennedy0720,

Please follow these steps to assure you have made sure there is no jam.

1. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.

2. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
reyjoshua07_0.gif

3. Open the back cover.
reyjoshua07_1.gif

4. Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).
reyjoshua07_2.gif

5. Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
reyjoshua07_3.gif

6. Close the back cover.

7. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.
reyjoshua07_4.gif

8. Close the front cover.

9. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.
reyjoshua07_5.gif

10. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
reyjoshua07_6.gif

11. Hold down the lock lever on the right and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Take out the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
reyjoshua07_7.gif

12. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.
reyjoshua07_8.gif

13. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.
reyjoshua07_9.gif

14. Close the front cover. Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine. Use both hands to slowly pull out the jammed paper.
reyjoshua07_10.gif

15. Press the cover release lever to open the front cover.
reyjoshua07_11.gif

16. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper may be pulled out with the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly, or this may release the paper so you can pull it out of the paper tray opening.
reyjoshua07_12.gif

17. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.
reyjoshua07_13.gif

18. Close the front cover.

20. Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.

21. Take out any paper from the ADF (automatic document feeder) that is not jammed. Open the ADF cover. Carefully pull out the jammed document to the left. Check for and remove any small pieces of paper stuck in the machine. A small piece of paper stuck in ADF will cause a document jam.
reyjoshua07_14.gif

22. Close the ADF cover. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed under the document cover. Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Lift the document cover. Pull out any jammed documents to the right. Again, carefully check for and remove any small pieces of paper.
reyjoshua07_15.gif

23. Close the document cover. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed at the output tray. Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Pull the jammed document out to the right.
reyjoshua07_16.gif

24. Press Stop/Exit. If the Document is jammed in the duplex slot (only for machines which support Duplex printing). Take out any paper from the ADF that is not jammed. Pull the jammed document out to the right.
reyjoshua07_17.gif

25. Press Stop/Exit. Make a Copy to test. Before placing your document(s) in the ADF verify the error message "Document Jam" in no longer displayed on the LCD. If the error message continues to appear on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us". Verify the ADF document support (located on the top of the ADF) is pulled out. Verify the document(s) are between 5.8 to 8.5 in. wide and 5.8 to 14in. long. Make sure the documents are inserted face up in the ADF, top edge first. The ADF can hold up to 50 pages and feeds each sheet individually. Use standard 20 lb (80 g/m²) paper and always fan the pages before putting them in the ADF.

Note:
DO NOT use paper that is curled, wrinkled, folded, ripped, stapled, paper-clipped, pasted or taped. DO NOT use cardboard, newspaper or fabric. Make sure documents written with ink are completely dry. Adjust the paper guides to fit the width of your documents. This ensures the document(s) will feed straight, preventing jams. Make a copy listed below:
For MFC users :
Press Start.
For DCP users :
Press Copy located below the LCD and then press Start.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Why does my printer say there is no paper in the tray when it is full?


from what u did I would look for a broken paper sensor.
It could also be a ripped paper hanging the sw.
it might also be that somehow the operating tray got changed in the config - if u have multiple trays or manual feed

Message keeps paper tray is full and it is full.


pull cassette out and look inside the cassette bay on the left side. there is a white gear that lifts up your paper. that might have come unseated. make sure its seated in right by pushing it back in. last but not least, make sure you don't have your rear paper stopper in cassette pushing paper too hard against the front of cassette preventing paper from raising up.

SCX-4216 "No Paper" message


I've had this happen to my scx4521f a few times. I think I had too much paper in it. Or maybe it was poorly loaded paper. Take the stack of paper out and turn it around so you have no dings or dents on the inward facing side. You need to make sure that the paper is stacked evenly. Good luck. And now I will post my problem.

I get a load paper message when paper is loaded


Probaply some paper or obstackles stuck at PE (paper empty sensor) and that could be hard to fix it cuz you may need to pull apart the printer. However, if it is 6 monthsold, warranty covers this problem.

Keep getting "out of paper" error message


Unfortunately this printer and alot of others like it have a very poor paper feed mechanism. I am finding that the (1) small pickup roller that is used in this and other machines like it is failing (not picking paper) prematurely or faster than i think it should (this is looking at page counts on some of these machines). We have been disassembling them and rubber restoring the pickup roller which fixes the paper jam/paper out errors.

Error message for Ricoh C410DN


When that message is displayed, the printer thinks the output tray is full of paper and it won't print any more because there is no room left to spit pages out. If the output tray isn't full of paper, the sensor that detects paper there might just be dirty or dusty.

That sensor is a black sensor that should be located just at the point where the paper exits the machine, above where the paper comes out. Blow some compressed air on the sensor to try to clean it off and see if that clears your error message.
