Question about Brother MFC 8840D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.

I have a Brother MFC-8840D multi-function printer. Lately I am getting a paper jam error message and there is no paper jam. If I put a single sheet of a paper in the bypass tray and let it feed out the back output tray it prints fine. Scanning also works fine.

With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.

Error code 36 is generally because of a paper jam that was not cleared. Remove the rear jam cover (the plastic cover in the back center of the machine)and the paper tray and check for any pieces of paper. Sometimes just a scrap will remain, but it's enough to cause the machine to not work.

Once you've replaced the covers, if the jam code does not reset, turn the machine off and then back on.

Brother mfc-8840d printer jam and have checked machine at least 10 times and there is no jam. can i reset printer or what do i d? it is driving me crazy that i cannot use this machine. thanks.


This might be off base but I have found two common causes for this. First, a small piece of paper can tear off and block a sensor giving a false alarm and second, the sensor it self can get stuck with the same result. Try canned air in all the nooks and crannies where the paper moves by. Make sure to remove the ink and unplug power. Otherwise a sensor could be bad which would mean factory trained service, unless you are very handy with small parts removal and replacement. Good Luck
