I doubt it. check for slow or no return on the sensor flags, springs off etc. dont flick them, engage them and let go to see if they hang. Is there a noise when it happens or does it just stop? could be your cartridge. could be fuser,gear related, could be feed rollers. where does the paper stop at? do any rollers skip a beat? could even be the transport.

Okay relax first thing take a deep breath, now there’ll be an indication on your display saying that a jam has occurred, sometimes it would of occurred in the document feed area right here these are documents you’re faxing out. If a jam has occurred in the document feed area it’s very simple, you open up the document feed there’s always a release somewhere go ahead and open it up, remove the documents if possible it’s best to move the paper in the direction of the paper travel, so remember if the paper is going this way through the machine you want to remove it in that direction, pulling it backwards can damage parts of the machine and tear off small pieces of paper that will remain inside and continue to cause problems. The same is true with the copy media or the paper we’re printing on, now this is a little more complicated sometimes to remove a jam, you have to open your machine up all of them open up a little differently some of them have more than one cover. On this particular machine we open up the **** shell like this, we remove the toner cartridge and we look in there you can see in here where the papers coming out, usually it’ll be right here there’s no place for it jam to where you can’t find it, on some of the larger more sophisticated machines there are doors in the back that have to be opened, on the side handles that need to be moved, if you have a question about the use of your specific printer it’s best to refer to your owners manual they’ll have all the information you need there but this is the basics on how most laser fax machines work and how to remove a jam."

Hope this helpout.....

Brother 2820 laser fax machine- problem is two papers are being picked up everytime a fax comes and the reult is a paper jam display. how to solve this?

Somewhere very close to where the paper feeds into the machine, you should be able to find a little piece of rubber. This is the separation pad (sometimes it's made of cork). Clean that, and you should start working again. If it works, then you'll eventually need to replace the sep pad, as cleaning is a temporary fix. You can buy that and the feed roller (they should be replaced together) here:

Try making prints or copies with the rear door open. If it does not jam your fixing unit (hot area) is functioning properly. With the rear door closed try again making copies or prints. If it jams it's most likely the exit rollers acting up.

1. I've seen the exit sensor break on these units and sometimes the drive gears wear and do not feed properly.
2. If using after market toner or refills this may also coat the exit roller with a film which prevents the exit rollers from feeding parper out by reducing the friction of theses rollers. Clean with fantastic untill cloth does not turn black.

Brother 2820 Says clear scanner jam and press stop

Make sure there is nothing caught where the documents go it. List up the scanner cover and look inside. It may need a separator pad or clean the feed rollers with some alcohol. Lawrence

Out of the lower paper tray when you go to print? Try this, remove the cassette tray and use a water dampened cloth and clean the gray paper pickup roller off. A lot of times this has paper fiber build up that causes the paper not to feed. The printer has a certain timing pattern for when paper should reach a certain sensor, and if it doesn't, then a jam error will occur.

Auto feeds crooked

Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
