You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

Paper jam on screen will not reset


To clear the error message Paper Jam after you removed the jammed paper, open and close the scanner cover.
If you still receive the error message, a small piece of paper may be stuck inside your Brother machine.

Refer the below link for the steps to remove any ripped paper remaining inside your Brother machine:

MFC640 Printer had a paper jam I took the paper out from the back put the cover back on its still flashing paper jam. what should I do?


TRY OPENING AND INSPECTING ALL AREAS WHERE THE PAPER GOES. USE A TORCH OR BRIGHT LIGHT TO CHECK IF THERE ANY BITS OF PAPER. ALSO CHECK IF ANY BITS MISSING FROM THE JAMBED SHEET OF PAPER. LOOK FOR A SMALL PIECE OF PAPER. AROUND THE ROLLERS OR PAPER MOVEMENT AREA. .ALSO IF PRINT HEAD IS ON LEFT SIDE GENTLY MOVE IT TO THE CENTRE WITHOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING, AND CHECK FOR ANY PAPER BITS BEHIND THE PRINT HEAD..
TO DO THIS YOU MUST REMOVE THE PAPER JAM COVER AT REAR OF MACHINE, LIFT UP THE WHOLE SCANNER COVER AND INSPECT. WHEN COMPLETE REPLACE THE REAR COVER AND CLOSE THE MACHINE. THEN RETRY.
HOPE THIS HELPS BARRY UBON.

MFC-640CW Switch on error message: "Unable to Init! - User Guide says this is a mechanical fault or jam - not a jam all clear. There is an empty Cyan ink cartridge message as well which is correct. Also...


If there is no jam it is generally a mechanical issue such as...

1. The planetary arm assembly not engaged correctly
2. Ink cartridge/purge switch harness not connected correctly
3. Purge cam switch broken
4. Gear(s) on maintenance unit broken
5. Paper feed motor broken
6. Main PCB defective

I find that if there was a paper jam, and the user pulled the paper out, option 4 is most likely. It is the smallest of cracks but ruins everything!

You will need to contact your local ASC for repair, find it here.

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.

Yes. There is some paper left in the very edge (mostly left hand side). Have a good look there by opening the scanner top.
