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.

What does document in ADF mean


Hello, Thanks for using Fixya today.
ADF is auto document feeder, used to feed a document into a scanner or printer. The error is associated when there is a document or paper jam at the document feeder, or paper trail.
This would happen mostly on scanners and all in one printers after witch a document is left in the feeder or there was a paper jam occurrence. We hope this answers your questions today?
Please contact us again if you still have a issue, or need help with anything else.
Thanks for using Fixya.com

How to fax (face up or face down)


Hello,

If you put the document on the glass surface, your document should be face down. If instead you use the automatic feed on top of the machine you should place your document face up and the top of the page inside he feeder.

Hope it helps.

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.

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!
