    I took the broken hinge off but can't find a replacement. This is an easy fix since part is held only with 3 small screws.

    I have a broken hinge, left back side of copier lid. This is a plastic part.

    Seem like a bad design in the hinge. Too much stress on a small plastic part. There should be a recall on this part.

The part number is LP2422003. That is the entire lid with hinges that attach to the body. It costs $177. Hope this helps.

Brother MFC-8860DN All-In-One Laser Printer showing document jam error


Doc jam error usually means a jam in the adf (auto doc feed) when feeding a fax or doc to copy.

The most common reason brother mfc,s of this configuration have doc feed issues is believe it or not the hinge that operates the lid/adf, specifically the left side one (looking from the front). Inside the hinge there are two springs exerting tremendous force on the hinge (that enables the lid to stay up by itself) however this force eventually slowly breaks the fulcrum point of the hinge which leads to the lid not closing properly which means a sensor under the lid does not activate properly resulting in the adf stopping and resulting in the machine registering a jam. the difference between the sensor activating or not can be as little as a millimeter and is not often disernable. the hinge needs replacing by a techo.

the other reason could be you just have dirty adf feed rollers, clean them with a cotton rag dipped in metho, open the adf lid and give the rollers a scrub. the rollers should have 'tread' on them similar to a tyre, if not they are worn and need replacing.

One other possibility is there may be a paper fragment left over from a jam removal still caught in the paper path and activating a sensor activator that tells the machine paper is coming or going. most commonly in the section where the paper is looping on its return journey back out of the adf, open the adf lid, have a look with a torch and see how you go.

Regards, Andrew.

Brother 8820d MFC auto doc feeder does not work...


You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

I can fax and copy on the glass with the Brother MFC 8440 but not through the ADF. Any suggestions?


This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!

Unit says Doc feed open. After checking many times it appears closed but can't clear the message and swith from fax to copy


raise the lid and hold the black pin down, located on the left back underside of the lid. your left hinge is probably broken or cracked causing the lid not to go down all the way.

Fax, Copy, Scan Buttons do not change


Sounds like switch inside operations panel has broken, there is no reset that will fix it, will need new operations panel.

the reset code on this machine is menu # 2 8 6 4 then maintence shows enter 99, the first bit must be done super quick.

Brother MFC-8440 Doc. Cover Open Error Message


I had the same problem, found your site and all of your suggestions. I ordered the same left hinge assembly from Vance Baldwin Electronics
Part #LP2403001 for $11.03, shipping from FL to OK was $9.23 UPS, so less than $20 and my MFC-8440 is working again! I did have difficulty placing the screws without a second pair of hands so have someone help you hold the lid. Make sure you removed the set ***** from at least the back of the left hinge assembly so that you can remove the "case" that holds the springs and sticky white parts. (Yes, I am a girl) :-). My husband will be so suprised when he gets home and sees that it works now because it was on his honey do list this weekend. Also, make sure that you replace the set screws and clean the scanner appropriately before use. I really like this site, it saved me a lot of money this time. Take Care!
