Nothing to do, just shut off the printer and wait for 5 min. Then remove the tray and adjust the tray according to paper size and then try to print.

Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

Try adjusting your paper tray. If you have the tray that adjusts from legal to letter it sometimes gets wiggled to some place inbetween. Just push it back into the letter position.

Paper Jam


sometimes the paper gets jam internally if the small piece of paper is just not letting the gears to move fluently this problem cad occur.for resolving this the whole printer needs to be opened and cleaned part by part.
but sometimes unplugging the printer from the main power outlet for sometime the replugging it again resolves the problem.

Hello, I have Brother printer MFC 8440.I keep getting mesaage that i have paper jam. I checked all places and there is no paper jam.How can I fix that problem?


It's possible there is still a very small scrap of paper left. If you have a can of air blow it in and try to dislodge it. If that doesn't work try to unplug it wait a minute and plug back it.

Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.

It is possible that a small piece of paper is stuck in the paper path above the primary feed roller. It will most likely need to be disassembled.

Printer thinks its out of paper when its not. Displays messsage "Check Paper - Reload Paper." Have emptied and replaced paper stack several times. No visible jam. Have shut down and restarted. Still not fixed.
