My Brother MFC8220 Keeps jamming the paper as it starts to enter the drum, is this a feed issue? or a Drum Issue? It appears to feed from the tray correctly, but then starts jamming as it enters the drum.

Using a cloth damp with water clean the feed roller. You will see it when you pull out the paper tray. If it starts feeding good it was a feeding prob.. If it keeps doing it look at the leading edge of the jammed paper for any signs of dings or bends. if you find any paper damage look in that area for what is causing the damage. Thank you, Steven 805-520-3003

I moved my computer and lexmark3470 to another room. suddenly i hook it back up [ports work fine} the three buttons on the left won't move up and down, and the printer keeps saying theres a computer jam...

If it shows false paper jam error try these steps :

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

I received this response from Hope it helps you.

If the paper feed rollers become dirty, they may not be able to properly
feed paper due to the feed roller's slippage. If paper does not feed
correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:

1. Open the Printer properties.

For Windows Vista

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'.

Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the
'Control Panel'.

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows XP Home Edition

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows XP Professional Edition

a. Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and
'Printers and Faxes.'

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Preferences' from the menu that appears.

For Windows 2000

a. Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen,
and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'

b. Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and
then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab and click 'Roller Cleaning'.

3. Remove all sheets of paper from the auto sheet feeder.

4. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

Note: Clicking 'OK' will activate the paper feed rollers 30 times. This
activation will take about 90 seconds. Do not perform other operations
until this operation has finished.

5. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

6. After the continuous paper feeding operations in step 5 have
finished, load three sheets of plain paper and click 'OK'.

7. Confirm the following message, and click 'OK'.

Note: The following message is displayed when the paper is fed and ejected.

8. Click 'OK'.

Roller Cleaning is completed.

If the issue continues to persist, try fanning the paper before
reseating in the automatic sheet feeder.

Follow these steps to fan the paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder(ASF):

1. Remove all documents from the ASF.

2. Check for any obstructions.

3. Fan out the sheets of paper so that they do not stick together.

4. Align the edges of the paper.

5. Insert the document stack, face up, into the ASF until you hear a

6. Adjust the document guides to the width of the document.

If fanning the paper does not help resolve the issue then the iP1800
printer will require service.

What kind of back door do you have on your machine. Does it have a knob that you twist to get it off or does it have pieces on the left and right you have to pinch to get it off. Reason for asking....

There were two versions of this machine put out that had two different service stations and paper feed mechanisms. One version had a motor for the paper feed mechanism and a motor for the service station. The other version just had a motor for the paper feed mechanism and service station movement was tied in to this motor This was done with an altered gear mechanism in the service station. This gear mechanism was cheap and it broke easily. When it breaks you get a knocking/grinding noise and no paper feed or service station movement. It can't be fixed.


Hope this helps.

4. If there is an issue with Paper Feed Rollers of your Printer. Or some times, the issue could also happen if there is some dust on the paper feed rollers.

5. If there is an issue with Printer software might have got corrupted.


Try below solutions :


1. Check whether the issue happens with all applications or not.

 If it happens with all applications, then we need to troubleshoot further or if it happens with Particular application like MS-word, then we need to check the Print settings.

3. If the issue still happens, then please disconnect the Printer from Wall outlet and from Computer, try to clean the Printer paper feed rollers . Please look in to Manual or Instruction set that is given with Printer to clean Paper feed rollers.
