    The hinge has a little plastic retainer on either side that holds the metal axis of the lid. For whatever reason (maybe somebody was trying to copy something from a book and tried to close the lid) it snapped and the whole assembly is raised a half inch. I tried to line up the components of the hinge and clamp it shut but the light stays on underneath. Also it won't take a sheet of paper from the top copy input. I don't know if I'll have to replace more than the hinge....we'll see

    Banjodude nope all you problem is the hinge, they all break one time or another on these machines. The problem is the little switch not closing in the left rear corner once hinge breaks

Brother 8820d MFC auto doc feeder does not work...


You need a new hinge so the cover will sit down properly, or paper will jam anyway, but it sounds like there is still a scrap of paper on one of the sensors inside the ADF, you need to look with a flashlight down thru where the paper goes and also look up thru the slot with the ADF lifted.

My printer says doc cover open on a mfc 8820d how should i fix.


You have to close the ADF. If the ADF is closed, then the left hinge is probably broken. Look for "MFC-8820D hinge" to find the solution in FixYa.

This is commonly a problem with the left hinge being broken on the lid where the adf is. Check that and if it is broken i can give you a part number.

Good luck!

8820DN hinge problem


To answer Meyerson's questions:
My symptoms did not include papers jamming in the ADF -- in fact, the ADF didn't work at all due to the broken left hinge.  :(  Also, I don't recall having any unusual problems with the ADF jamming frequently before the hinge broke to the point where the ADF didn't work at all.  
I obtained the replacement ADF left hinge assembly by searching online for a parts dealer.  I believe I ended up ordering the part from Precision Roller. 
I hope this helps,
-Barb

How to replace broken hinge on ADF on Brother MFC-8820D printer


Look at back of machine and at your new hinge, note the screw hole, if you undo both of those on the back of the printer, entire doc feed will come up and out, BECAREFULL just lift A LITTLE is enough to enable hinge base to be free of sockets (many cables attached) and place doc unit slightly sideways on copy glass to enable yourself access to 3 screws that hold hinge.

I need a new ADF (automatic document feeder), where can I get one?


ADF can be bought from a dealer, it has a few cables that need removal so it is a little tricky, it is also a expensive part (approx Aus$200, why are you replacing it, are you sure you dont just need to clean feed rollers or there is also another common fault on these doc feeders, the left side hinge breaks( replace hinge)

 

here is the brother part number for the adf (complete), you will need to purchase from a autherised brother dealer -

Scanning tray not working


Check that the hinges that are on the ADF (the bit that you can lift to reveal copy glass) are not broken, the left side hinge breaks, causing the ADF switch (also on left) to not close, causing problems like yours.
