When receiving a FAX or printing a receipt, it repeatedly jams. The paper is found inside the back cover baked into a folded fan shape.

This folded pattern indicates that the jam is being caused by a physical obstruction in the paper path section. I would suggest manually feeding a thick piece of cardstock paper and seeing if you can find the location of the jam, as it is most likely a piece of trapped paper or plastic tab that has come out of its original position.

I bought a MFC4770 in May 2010 adn it works well till now. But yesterday, paper jams,then I fixed it. Today even there are lot of paper in the bottom,it always say no paper,but I can feed paper one...

When the paper tray is removed, you should see a plastic piece that dangles, this piece rises and falls depending on the amount of paper in the tray. However, if that plastic piece gets bumped or comes out of its housing, it will sense that there is no paper in the tray. I suggest you look for this piece and ensure that when you manually press it up and release, it falls back down to its original position, if not, you will need to correctly seat it.

Brother MFC-7220 says "close back cover" but it's closed

Have you tried this solution by joefishny:

Turn the machine around so that you are facing the back. Open the back cover. Pull down the second

smaller roller cover inside the machine. If you look closely at the second smaller cover, on the right hand side (closer the the inside of the machine), is a very thin round piece of plastic that is only half the

length of the smaller cover. There are 2 thin plastic tabs attached to either end of this round piece of

plastic. Gently shift this over so that the 2 plastic tabs can now go into the space provided for them. I had to move mine over only 1/4 inch.

Paper Jam in Bowels Of Canon ImageClass D760. Also need to replace Rollers where paper exits Copier. I have the parts-how do I get to it

It needs a new fixing unit. If you are careful and have a long skinney screw driver you could do this. Open the right side door. Remove the small screw in front this secures the control panel.

Shift panel to the left and remove the ribbon cable. Put right top door down. Shift top feeder back to the right. remove all the screws on the left side and remove the plastic. There is a top piece held by one screw in the middle. One on the left and two hold the bottom plate on. Remove this plastic. Now the dangerous part. Remove the two screw on top of the the machine that hold the two white guide pins. Now you are going to rock the top feeder up and to the back. Before you do this you need to know there is a plastic finger that comes up out of the copier and is part of the main drive gear pack. IF YOU BREAK THIS you can just throw your machine away in the trash. SLOWly look under the top *** you rock it back. You want to shift the feeder unit left or right to get clearnace of the white 90 degree angle finger that is in a grove of the feeder. Clear it and rock the feeder back resting on the rear of the copier. DO THIS CLOSE TO A WALL. SO WHEN YOU ROCK BACK THE SIDE CAN SIT ON THE BACK OF THE COPIER. There are hole in the top that allow a screwdriver to remove the three screw for the fixing unit. and you will unplug two wires. GOOD LUCK !!

I cant recive any fax

Sometimes the plain paper in the tray underneath upsets the whole machine.

Open up the top of the machine, as if you were going to change the toner cartridge. Pull out the cartridge carefully to mae sure that there is not a piece of paper jameed underneath. Replace the catridge and close the top of the machine. when you close the top 'door' the machine will make a noise as if it is resetting itself - the 'jam' display may or may not clear at this point. Next, pull out the paper tray. You will need to stoop down to look into the gap where the tray normally sits. If there is a piece of paper jammed at the back this will need to be carefully removed. If you pull it out make sure there a re no fragments left int he machine - you can check this by oepning out the piece of paper removed and see if there are any pieces missing.
Finally, if all is clear, replace the paper tray (it would be worth topping up your supply of paper as the 'jam' message sometimes comes up when the machine has a low paper supply.

Hope this helps.
