Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer

1 Answer

My Brother MFC-7820N has a paper jam problem that seems to be related to it's picking up an additional sheet of paper and when the first sheet completes it's print pass, the second is midway and the printer shows an error. I only have this when I have more than one sheet in the paper tray.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    The problem is to do with the fact that the printer is picking a second sheet even if only a single sheet is to be printed. Seems to be a setting or a sensor issue.

Most paper has a smooth side and a little less smooth side, try flipping the paper. in the pack use the top side as the printing side when u load. try a different brand of paper could easily correct the problem,

some feed trays work best when nearly full also, try half full etc.

Paper feed jams. feeds from lower tray, turns 180 deg. then jams. Single sheet feed is fine


while keeping the paper .. ensure that it is properly stacked... fan the paper and ensure that it is not stuck to each other.. also open the printer cover and see if any paper is stuck inside..

Try to open the rear access door ,and clean the paper roller with slightly damp lint free cloth

My Brother MFC-7820N has trouble picking up sheets of paper


Hi! I just recently noticed that the 7820N has an "extension" piece at the back of the paper tray. This extension should be pulled all the way out and the blue paper stop adjusted accordingly. Otherwise, the loose extension piece will slide out from the rear of the printer when the tray is slammed in, and the paper will not be where the the printer expects it to be.

Other than that, check that the pad at the front of the tray is clean, and that the plastic small roller next to it rotates freely. Also, try cleaning the rubber rollers that are located inside the printer above the tray with a damp cloth.

Frequent Paper Jams in Brother HL-2140


Every 120,000 pages, the paper feed rollers, fuser, transfer roller, and OPC belt cartridge should be replaced, usually by a trained techncian.
Fuser and OPC belt units are customer-replacable.

The multiple feeding of the paper into the printer is due to a worn paper separation pad. part no. LM0711001. If the machine is picking up the paper okay and the jams occur solely from multiple sheet feeding, then this part is probably all you will need. The steps required to access and remove & replace the separation pad unfortunately is about 10 steps. Better consult a tech.

Continual paper jams in rear of printer


If the paper is jamming at the exit rollers, you will be need to clean the rubber on the rollers. It gets shiny and does not grip the paper to take it away.
