    the hinge on the platten is broken and it wont stay down to copy or fax

  • Anonymous Dec 19, 2008

    I have a MFC-8440 and MFC-8420 since 2005, both are sparingly used with no problems. While moving the stuff, the faltbed tops got slightly misaligned and did not rest properly on the glass. I found a black projection under the ADF which when pressed alilgned properly with greater flexibillity. But I realized for both MFCs the hinges are broken as if the black projection is meant to break the hinge. Now, the autofeeder does not work. What to do? Brother customer care has given a local (Virginia, McLean) repairshop number. What it costs, and does it require a replacement? Any help appreciated.

Those hinges have been updated by Brother. You need to go to Brother's website and find a local service center.

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.

I can fax and copy on the glass with the Brother MFC 8440 but not through the ADF. Any suggestions?


This is usually cause by a broken left hinge on the adf. Lift the lid and look near the back at the hinge. If you need the part email me for pricing jtuminaro@officetechservice.com

Good luck!

I fixed my door with Gorilla Glue (any epoxy will do.)  Find the broken piece and splice together.  You CAN do it!

Brother MFC 8420-- hinge?


i went to Brother site and opened support.
searched for parts and got a listing of technical support shops in my area. called the first one listed and asked if they had the LP2403001 hinge in stock and they came back with an affirmative answer. will pick it up this afternoon locally.
You can see an image of the hinge assembly at ebay if you search for LP2403001.

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.

Brother MFC-8440 Doc. Cover Open Error Message


I had the same problem, found your site and all of your suggestions. I ordered the same left hinge assembly from Vance Baldwin Electronics
Part #LP2403001 for $11.03, shipping from FL to OK was $9.23 UPS, so less than $20 and my MFC-8440 is working again! I did have difficulty placing the screws without a second pair of hands so have someone help you hold the lid. Make sure you removed the set ***** from at least the back of the left hinge assembly so that you can remove the "case" that holds the springs and sticky white parts. (Yes, I am a girl) :-). My husband will be so suprised when he gets home and sees that it works now because it was on his honey do list this weekend. Also, make sure that you replace the set screws and clean the scanner appropriately before use. I really like this site, it saved me a lot of money this time. Take Care!
