MFC-1970MC Check Paper error

I left much too many sheets sitting in the received area of my My 1970MC, and I'm assuming that last week when it tried to print its weekly report, it jammed because the slot was blocked. Now it displays a constant Check Paper error. I've checked absolutely every area and there's no errant paper. I've used compressed air to clear out any dust bunnies or paper snips, but nothing helps so far. Any ideas?

The black sensor flags have to move freely. Usually one gets dislodged when paper jams are removed to forcefully.

Brother mfc-7840w won't receive fax

The first thing that I would try multiple people to ask them to fax you.Sometimes the 2 machines don't "sync".This is a toll free fax test number that I always use to check my machines..1-888-473-2963.Just write the words "FAX TEST" in large letters on a blank sheet of paper..fax it to that number...leave the line open...you should get a fax back in about a minute.If you get a fax back...your machine is fine...let me know if this was helpful....thanks.

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.

How do I connect?

You can use the Windows NT4 drivers located at http://www.brother.com/E-ftp/info/mfc/mfc970mc.html. Most likely you will need a parallel printer cable (D25 Male to C36 Male).

Line almost straight down center when receiving fax

if you try a internal print such as a report does it go away? if so its more lucky the person sending you the fax.

if you print a report and its on there i would check the ribbon and look for marks, also it could be a transfer problem causing these marks.

Hope this gives you a starts
