Brother DCP8020D Document Feeder

Soulvisitor - Thanks for your good advice on the document feeding problems with Brother printers. I have inspected my left hinge and I don't think it's the problem. When you first insert a page in the doc feeder, the machine spins up, sucks in the page about 1/2 inch and then the ERROR light comes on. So I'm more inclined to think that the problem is with the Document Pickup/Feed Roller assembly. Would you agree? Should I replace other parts as well (rubber separation pad, LF roller assembly, etc.)? Thanks! - Dave Claunch in Austin, Texas

Clean rubber rollers with metho, run a page by hand of laminate or stiff card threw the doc feeder. Stick it where the paper comes out of DF and ensure path is clear.

Push down on left side or tape down little black switch (rear left corner near glass)while trying to use df to confirm hinge aint the issue

If it is the rollers it should feed when paper is "helped a little" with hand at feed time

Ensure prints ok when using glass instead of df to know it is df problem

Cheers

Will not manually feed paper


Are you talking about the document feeder or the copier. On both counts try to clean the rubber wheels above the feed tray, or up on the document feeder with something like windex or a water cleaner. make sure the wheels are dry, and watch to see if the wheels are turning. If wheels are turning when you feed you need new wheels, sometimes you can rough them up with a grit nail file, or sandpaper.

My fax is having a problem feeding pages through the document feeder, it doesn't always grad the page, and if it doesn't get it, it acts like it has a paper jam, what is causing this?


Open the document feeder. Inside you will find a grey feed roller. Cleaning this roller with a cloth dampened with water will help with these paper jams in the document feeder.

Document Feeder jams


I got adventurous and removed the screws holding the document feeder. I then used a can of air and blew into the gears and then reassembled the feeder. It works perfectly.

Scanning


Our problem is not solved. It was suggested the feeder needed cleaning or wasn't working. The feeder works as we make copies of documents. If one is scanning can you feed the document or can you only scan one page at a time by placing it on the window?

Document feeder works for printing but not for scanning


Hi, When you had the doucment feed jam were you able to clean or remove any paper that might be blocking the paper to be scanned? It sounds like there is paper still in the document feeder , I would open the DF and check very closely to make sure no paper is in the way!Good Luck!
