Question about Printers & Copiers
Need some guidience, we have a Brother MFC 8440, the document feeder is not working. Originally the copier was not acknowledging the paper in the feeder, after looking through this site, we replaced the Left Hinge, now the feeder acknowledges there is paper in the feeder, but it will not pull pull the paper through the feeder.
I used this copier a lot, every day, it gets to be a pain to have to place each paper on the glass bed to get a copy or fax done.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
ITS PROBABLE THAT A CONNECTOR CAME OUT.REMOVE BACK CORNER PANEL AT FEEDER CABLE TO CONFIRM.

MAke sure that there is a black flag standing upright, that activate the sensor for ADF ready.
Normally we will clean the feed rollers and sensors, to rectify that problem

Thanks Seckhaus! I removed the back corner panel and one of the cables was disconnected. It's pretty tight in there, but I was able to reconnect and the printer is working as it should now! Thank you.

ADF can be bought from a dealer, it has a few cables that need removal so it is a little tricky, it is also a expensive part (approx Aus$200, why are you replacing it, are you sure you dont just need to clean feed rollers or there is also another common fault on these doc feeders, the left side hinge breaks( replace hinge)
here is the brother part number for the adf (complete), you will need to purchase from a autherised brother dealer -
