My Brother MFC 8440 scanner has a paper jam, and I have lost my users manual to describe how I can fix it. From what website can I get a free users manual? Nancy Coggins nancyc1938@gmail.com

    Angelo,

    Thank you for the URL for the user manual for my Brother MFC 8440 Scanner All-In-One Laser Printer, which I downloaded.

    I checked all the PAPER JAM illustrated places in this manual (in the top of the ADF unit, inside of the ADF unit, in back of the paper tray, in the drum unit assembly in front, and inside the back output tray in the fuser unit), and I didn't find any jammed paper. Before contacting you, I hadn't checked the fuser unit.

    When I turned off the machine and then on again, it did print for me -- without giving me a Paper Jam error message! So maybe the trick was simply to open and close the fuser unit door.

    So, having misplaced my user manual, it least now I have it in my downloads. Thanks again.

I have a brother MFC 8440 and the document feeder has never worked properly. It pulls the documents in slightly off line and causes the paper to jam before it gets to the scanner. It is out of warranty...


you might have some type of foreign debris covering the paper path, you might want to try heavier paper (almost like a thin cardboard) and try to manual drive it into the paper path, do not force it too much if it wont budge.

also try cleaning your pickup roller, lint free cloth with iso-propel alcohol.

Paper Jam


sometimes the paper gets jam internally if the small piece of paper is just not letting the gears to move fluently this problem cad occur.for resolving this the whole printer needs to be opened and cleaned part by part.
but sometimes unplugging the printer from the main power outlet for sometime the replugging it again resolves the problem.

Hello, I have Brother printer MFC 8440.I keep getting mesaage that i have paper jam. I checked all places and there is no paper jam.How can I fix that problem?


It's possible there is still a very small scrap of paper left. If you have a can of air blow it in and try to dislodge it. If that doesn't work try to unplug it wait a minute and plug back it.

I have a brother MFC 8440


Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.

Paper jam on my brother mfc 8440


It is possible that a small piece of paper is stuck in the paper path above the primary feed roller. It will most likely need to be disassembled.

Printer thinks its out of paper when its not. Displays messsage "Check Paper - Reload Paper." Have emptied and replaced paper stack several times. No visible jam. Have shut down and restarted. Still not fixed.
