8820DN hinge problem

Looks like we have exactly the same problem with our Brother 8820D (8820DN) that you seem to have fixed. Three questions:
Did your symptoms also include papers jamming in the ADF about halfway, generally sticking on the white-pad underbelly of the ADF?
If so, did replacing the hinge address that problem as well?
Where and how did you obtain the replacement hinge?
Thanks and best wishes ---

    I have the same issue, Left hinge broke, feeder sticks 1/2 thru if I press down really hard the closed cover at the point of the hinge.

    Thanks, all. Turns out that replacing the hinge did indeed address our problem, for about $12. What a great service this site provides!

The ears broke off my hinge and caused the whole ADF unit to sit way up off the scanner bed. As a workaround, I took out the 2 caps and springs so that the lid would close. There is no dampening and probably poor alaignment but it does sheet feed and will copy from the bed as well. I am going to order the hinge.
Thanks guys

I too had a hinge problem with my brother 8220dn and i got the part from a third party (cannot remember the name). if you can replace a faucet washer it is just about as difficult. if you own this printer and the hinge has not broken be sure to life the cover from the middle because the torsion is what causes the hinge to break. nito

I had a broken left hinge in Sept 2006. I called Brother International at 800-284-4357, Option 1, then 2. I ordered the left hinge - Part No: LP-2403001 - described as ADF Hinge Assembly (left). If you broke the right hinge, the part number may differ slightly, but person on phone should be able to assist. It cost me $11.55 including shipping.

To answer Meyerson's questions:
My symptoms did not include papers jamming in the ADF -- in fact, the ADF didn't work at all due to the broken left hinge.  :(  Also, I don't recall having any unusual problems with the ADF jamming frequently before the hinge broke to the point where the ADF didn't work at all.  
I obtained the replacement ADF left hinge assembly by searching online for a parts dealer.  I believe I ended up ordering the part from Precision Roller. 
I hope this helps,
-Barb

New computer is Windows 7 - 64 bit Printer is Brother MFC-8820D. Printer works fine - computer does not recognize the scanner feature of the MFC. Have tried both USB and LPT1 connection to the new...


I lost my network fax and scanning when I upgraded to Win 7 as Brother had no support for Win7 and this printer. Very disappointing.

However, I recently downloaded the MFC-8370DN install package from the Brother website and installed it on my Win7 64 bit Asus laptop. The installer couldn't find my MFC8820DN, but I manually entered the IP address (192.168.0.100 in my case). The install completed cleanly, after a reboot I can now start Brother Control Centre 3 and scan and fax from my 8820DN over the network. All good, no need to buy a new printer just yet...

I scanned successfully. Next attempt says "Unable to initialize the scanner". I can't get past this (Brother 8820D)


the program you were scanning to probably didn't release the scanner. first thing to try is turn the scanner off for a minute or so and then back on.

My printer says doc cover open on a mfc 8820d how should i fix.


You have to close the ADF. If the ADF is closed, then the left hinge is probably broken. Look for "MFC-8820D hinge" to find the solution in FixYa.

ERROR 7A


For the error code "7a" to be fixed permanently, you need to ensure that the main PCB is fine and is working in good condition.
If the error code is caused due to malfunctioning of the main motor, then you need to check the whole setup by connecting it with another motor.
In this case, make sure that there is no mechanical load present on the main board.
While fixing this error code, you will notice that the motor runs slowly initially and then picks up the speed later.
