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...

Can't close doc cover properly - seems 'broken' at hinge - can I fix this myself?


The left hinge breaks often enough that Brother changed the part number of the part. I hope that means the new part is stronger; I haven't seen one come back for a second repair. Assuming it's the larger, left hinge that's broken (It always is.), you need an LP2403001 HINGE ASSY L. You can find it from a servicing dealer or online, and it's easy to replace.

Look at the back of the machine and find two large phillips screws in holes. They keep the hinge blocks from coming up all the way out of the machine. Remove both of them and lift the top cover up until it's connected only by its cable. It might take a helper to hold the cover, but you need to unscrew the hinge assy. from the top. The three screws are obvious and easy to reach now that the cover is loose. Put the new hinge on, lower the top back down so the hinges drop into their holes, and put those screws back into the holes in back. You're done.

The flatbed lid on my 8820D has a broken hinge in the back. What are sources for the hardware parts so I can repair it myself?


I purchased a direct replacement from e_techparts on ebay for under $10 + S&H, very simple replacement, just a few screws. It's even available on Amazon. Part # LP2403001.

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.

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.

How to replace broken hinge on ADF on Brother MFC-8820D printer


Look at back of machine and at your new hinge, note the screw hole, if you undo both of those on the back of the printer, entire doc feed will come up and out, BECAREFULL just lift A LITTLE is enough to enable hinge base to be free of sockets (many cables attached) and place doc unit slightly sideways on copy glass to enable yourself access to 3 screws that hold hinge.
