The machine flashes Paper Jam, and will not operate at all. All points have been checked, but no paper jam is evident. The machine has been unplugged to re-set and still nothing is able to clear the message and restart the machine.

Re: Brother IntelliFAX 2800 - Paper Jam
It could be one of two things. First and most common is one of the sensors is dirty/stuck and a quick round of compressed air will usually take care of it. This is especially common if you have been running 3 hole punched paper as the loose punches tend to cover sensors. Recycled paper also tends to leave some dusty residue and that will, in time, obscure the sensors, along with a dusty environment or if the machine is on the floor.
Another possibility is one of the physical sensors got knocked off course a bit. This could be caused by pulling out jammed paper too roughly or running lots of heavy paper through the unit. I would do a visual inspection for any bent or crooked parts.
