Question about Brother IntelliFAX 2800 Laser Fax

1 Answer

Plastic retainer My problem is...HOW to carefully pry it off? It doesn't budge. It's got a tab on it, but it doesn't matter if I lift it or push it, it doesn't help. I've tried every tool in the office, also. The closest Brother service center is 30 miles away, and we can't go five minutes without this fax machine. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Mary Zeiner

It's difficult to describe how to do it, except use a tiny instrument size screwdriver. The tab mates with a corresponding square hole.

Change toner


Step 1 Check the top of your Canon fax/copy machine to see if your specific model has a protruding extension piece from the plastic delivery tray. Push the extension piece down if one is present on your model.
Step 2
Grip the bottom edge of the paper delivery tray at the front of the machine. Lift the tray upward to reveal the rectangular, plastic toner cartridge inside the machine.

Step 3
Grab the handle at the top of the current toner cartridge and lift the cartridge upward. Pull the toner out of the machine and set it aside.
Step 4
Set your replacement toner cartridge over the empty space in the fax/copy machine. Ensure that the arrow near the bottom of the cartridge is facing down, and line up the protruding guide piece on the left side of the cartridge with the groove inside the machine. Push the toner downward until it snaps into position.
Step 5
Push the paper delivery tray back down, and lift up the extension piece if your model uses one.

Cannon fax l100 how can I fix this problem


Looks like a document jam as the paper rolled up under the scanner bed.
Do you have the manual for the unit?
It is on line at mypdfmanuals.com. Just google it!

1. Lift the document release lever.

If a multi-page document is loaded, remove
the entire document from the ADF.

2. Lift the paper stack cover and pull it out completely.

Make sure the back end of the cover does
not catch the front paper guide.

3. Lower the scanning platform in the document delivery slot (this is on ththe front of the machine - a small tab you push down.

4. Carefully!!! pull out the jammed document - do not wrench it out.

5. Lift the scanning platform back into place.

6. Inset the paper stack cover (that you took out earlier.

I have a Canon imageclass D880 multifunction, error"Paper Jam, slide platen..." I can see the paper deep within the machine ( fuser?) but cannot get to it to get it out.


Hi marcbachm177,

Please follow the steps below on how to remove paper jams inside printers in hard-to-reach places, a pair of medical forceps is often useful.

1. Take off 3 plastic covers one above exit area-slide top to left to access screw. Remove lower exit cover and side cover -unsnaps with 2 pins and there is one more cover I think over the fan that needs to come off.

2.Locate black plastic sheet covering a circuit board carefully pull this back-disconnect 3 plastic connectors that lead from the heater to the circuit board.

3. Using a offset phillips #2 screwdriver remove 3 screws that hold the fuser to the frame.

4. Carefully lift fuser up and out toward the exit area.

5. Pop off black cover remove 2 screws from top of fuser, disengage cover lid locks with a small screwdriver, lift upper fuser heater - be careful NOT to damage plastic heater membrane. remove paper jam and reassemble.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello! i just got a smith corona Galaxie Twelve Typewriter (around 70s made) and I have never used a manuel typewriter before, and the typewriter is in its carrying case. The problem is I do not know how...


You opened the case by pressing in two metal tabs in the plastic block under the carrying handle. Under the bottom of that same plastic block is a smaller metal tab. Press it up into the plastic block, and it will unlatch the front of the typewriter. Lift the front, then slide the machine forward off the tabs that go into the back, and you're free!

Check paper error won't go away


All these machines use little, black, plastic levers to detect the paper. One end of the lever goes through the light beam of an "optical interrupter," and the other sticks into the center of the paper path, where it's pushed by the paper as it runs through the machine. My guess is that the jam or your attempts to clear it knocked one of these sensor levers out of its pivots, so it doesn't swing properly. If you look carefully into the paper tray and the path the paper takes through the machine, you'll probably find a couple of these levers, and one of them is probably sitting at an angle. If you can hold the sensor assembly in you hands, it's a simple matter to snap the lever back into its pivots. If you're just working through the little slot the lever sticks up through, you might get lucky, but it's much harder.

I have a Brother Intellifax 4100 Fax machine. I may have pulled the paper cathrudge out to abruptly because a 3/4 spring was dislodged from somewhere - I have not identified where it belongs. As a...


best guess is it belongs under the paper lift plate in your paper tray, remove the paper tray and all the paper, there should be a metal paper lift plate in the paper tray, these are typically spring loaded to lift the paper into place. lift the plate and check the underside for the location of the spring, there is usually a retainer of some sort to hold the spring in place. once the spring is in place the tray should feed correctly.

Hope this is of some help.

Paper feed roller


The little plastic thingy you refer to is a retainer. There is indeed a way to remove it without breaking it. Carefully pry the locking hook from it's position, then remove the roller assembly complete.

Brother MFC 7820N error message "back cover open" but cover is closed. machine is now not functional as error message can't be removed


If you open the back cover (depress the release button on the top right) If you lift it up look for two black anchors that grab the base when you close the lid. I have one that has a broken tab on the left side, which happens to be the same side as the cover closed switch. If the top is not closed all the way the rollers do not line up and the cover switch is not depressed to let normal operation. Also, if the switch arm is busted (case colored plastic push pin protruding from the cover) it will not make contact with the switch when closed. Try closing the cover and push down on left side of the fax. Does the error go away? If not, the actuator arm or the switch are bad.

FAX will not print.


I have the same problem. Found this solution on the Brother site:

If the faxes you receive and the copies you make print half blank pages
please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the power cord

2. Lift the top cover up.

3. Next, lift the two purple release levers located on each side of the
metal plate. The print head will pop up.

4. Remove the ribbon cartridge from the unit.

5. Lift the plastic paper cover (located behind the black rubber
roller).

6. Carefully remove any paper that is jammed by pulling in an upward
direction.

7. Push the paper cover down (located behind the black rubber roller).

8. Place the ribbon cartridge back in the unit with the ribbed triangle
on the plastic casing furthest away from you. Make sure the cartridge
gears rest in the white gear holders.

9. Gently push down the print head until it clicks into place.

10. Close the top cover securely.

11. Plug the power cord back in.

Test by making a copy.

1. Place a document (with text on both sides) in the ADF (automatic
document feeder).

2. Adjust the paper guides on the sides of the ADF to fit the width of
the document.

3. Press the COPY key.

If the problem continues and your machine is within warranty, you can
