Your paper sensor actuator arm is most likely broken or out of position, or you may have a dirty sensor if you are in a dusty environment. If you look in the machine with the tray out, you should see a small (usually black) piece of plastic hanging down. You can also take the toner and drum cartridge out and turn it on its back to get a better look. If it's not there, it's probably broken off.

Brother MFC 8220 has a red ligth with an error message saying check paper reload paper. I put the tray correctly with papers loaded and it keeps. Cannot print, copy or fax anything


mine was doing the same thing. pull the paper tray out and there is a black lever next to the feed drum, it wouldn't move up and down. I took of the cover and slid the lever over to the left so it would move freely and now it is fine.

Not receiving messages. "Load paper" and "rec'd in memory." I take out paper, reload, and push stop/reset. Still get same messages.


The machine thinks that there is no paper so it stores the documents in memory. Remove the paper, turn off the machine and unplug from the power for 5 seconds, then turn the machine back on and wait for a few seconds - now try and load the paper. The machine should try to reset the paper tray but if your problem persists then it sounds as though the paper sensor is faulty or has fallen out of it's position.

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

Problem with Brother MFC-9420CN


This happened on my MFC-9420CN. It turns out the there are blue tabs inside the paper tray that hold the paper in place. If the tabs are not touching the paper, you'll get this "Check Paper Size" error. The printer thinks that you have loaded a different paper tray.
