    The machine is in a constant state of "paper jam". I have cleared it, changed the ribbon, and taken all paper out. It still thinks it has a "paper jam", How can I get this message off so the fax machine will work?

Hi:

You may have removed the paper but the reason why it is still saying paper jam can be caused by at least two things.

If you removed the paper, but it tore while you were taking it out then a small piece could be blocking a sensor or a sensor flag ( a spring loaded finger that the paper has to activate as it moves through the machine) It's possible that a small piece of paper could be blocking a sensor or you may have disloged one of these 'flags' in the area where you first removed the paper. Go back and look closely in that area for a piece of paper or a sticking ''flag'. Until you do that the fax keeps thinking that there is something in the paper path and will keep displaying that message.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?


Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    Work Center Pro 575 always gets paper jams


    If a document jam occurs during a transmission, the message "DOCUMENT JAM" is displayed. If this occurs, follow the procedure below. It is recommended that a duplicate from a copier, of the jammed document be used to reduce the chance of a jam when resending the document.
    See Chapter 3, "Loading Documents" for document specifications and recommendations which may help avoid paper jams.
    Note: The power can be left ON when clearing a paper jam.
    Typical Causes of Document Jams
    Recommended Procedure
    The document is fed at an angle.
    Adjust the Document Guides to the edges of the
    document.
    The document paper is too thin or too thick.
    Make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy
    as the sending document.
    Document has tape or pieces of paper taped to it.
    Remove the tape or make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy as the sending document.
    The Control Panel Cover is not fully closed.
    Close the Control Panel Cover fully.
    The document is stapled. Remove the staple(s), or make a duplicate using a copier and use the copy as the sending document.
    Basic Troubleshooting
    1. Remove all documents from the Document Support.
    2. Open the Control Panel Cover.
    3. Remove the document jam. Remove any pieces of paper, paper clips, or staples that may have caused the jam.
    4. Close the Control Panel Cover.
    5. Verify the display has returned to the Standby Mode.

    Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine


    Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

    Says there is a paper jam but there is not


    First, you have to clear the error first before sending the fax.

    -open the rear access door at the back and check if there is any debris of paper. If none, close the access door and make sure you hear the snap and properly closed.

    -lift the document feeder cover to check for any debris, and then close it properly.

    -if error is cleared, try faxing again

    Goodluck!

    Hi. Open the document control panel and look in with a flashlight and see if the jam switch is stuck. also look for a small piece of paper that might be stuck in there. The jam is in where you put documents in to fax out. Lawrence
