There are several sensor flags along the paper exit route, if
any one of these flags stick or have broken the printer will
take the paper so far then shows jam.

remove the drum unit first then the paper jam, look directly
into the printer to where the drum unit sits and check to see
if one of the flags is sticking up-rite in the centre area.Its spring
loaded so as you push it back, it springs forward again thats ok

Remove base paper tray:
The other flag is at the rear and can be accessed by opening
the rear door and then by opening the inner paper exit ***'y
you can then see the flag on the exit ***'y,this is also spring
loaded. If any of these are out of place/stuck or broken a paper
jam will always occur.
let me know what you find!!

Pull out the tray, check to see if its jammed in there.

Open the top/front cover, remove the toner and check to see if its in there,

There may be a manual feeder at the front, a door to open, check there.

and finally there may be a door at the back that can be partial opened (another output tray), check there.

Jammed paper whole sheet of paper is half jammed in machin. I cannot pull it out.


Firmly grip the paper and yank it as hard as possible. If that fails, bring the printer to a repairman.

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.


With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.

Will not pick up paper from tray. Red light blinks indicating a paper jam. Prints fine if single sheet thru bypass slot.


Not picking up paper indicates either a worn nip roller (rubber on feed spindle) or you have a broken gear in the feed mechanism.

PRINTER DID NOT TAKING PAPER AFTER PRINT OPTION AND PRINTER STOPS AFTER 2INCHES PAPER


hi
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer.
Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.

  • Don't Overload
    Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
  • Check the Paper
    Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
  • If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..

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.
