Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No paper fed

My printer will not print out my photos. Each time I try to print, the paper will jam. My printer is one month old, even I have not changed the cartridge.

    Same problem here. The first three pages I printed (Photo Glossy) printed well, then every one after that might take 5 or 6 tries before the paper will roll and print.

Brother printers dislike photo gloss paper, even if it is only 110gsm, they just don't seem to be able to feed it around the rollers. I suggest using a Matte paper, but no more than 140gsm

Paper jams on epsonXP605 expression printer


Printing photos from the back feed? Using special photo paper? Try cleaning the paper rollers that feed the paper. They get slick.

Paper jam/no paper fed


make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
set the paper type to photo.

If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

Epson Stylus Photo R350 giving a paper jam error message


An Epson service man (he was VERY kind to suggest this) told me to use a weak detergent solution on the rollers, NOT alcohol as that will dry out the material the rollers are made of. Although the problem has recurred a couple of times, it's worth repeating when necessary. I actually activate the 'print' command so it tries to feed in paper, while I FIRMLY hold a piece of fine cotton cloth stretched over a thin plastic ruler, which I hold down where the paper feed grabs its paper. The printer has a couple of tries to feed paper, reports an error message (because there was no paper) and I activate it again, thus exposing the WHOLE of the feed wheel to the cleansing cloth! WORTH A TRY!

Paper jammed but no paper is jammed.


Sounds like something has fallen into the paper path. Use a flashlight and small mirror to look down the slot where the paper goes. You may have to use a straightened paper clip or the like to help remove the obstruction.

Paper jam R240


A qualified - manufacturer certified servicer is needed here. Your are correct, the missing piece is still inside and also, yanking-out a paper (while it is being fed by the printer) will have a definite damage on the paper-feeding mechanism.

In-warranty or not - u need to call the manufacturer.
