    Display should read maintenance
    Press 0 1 for a full ram clear, or 9 1 to retain user data
    Display should read reinit for a few moments then redisplay maintenance
    Press 9 9 to exit the maintenance mode

    Other maintenance mode switches:

    05 white level
    09 print test

    55 scanner area
    66 test print memo
    75 display drum life (if enabled on laser models)
    76 reset drum life counter (laser models)
    91 parameter initialize (user programming remains intact)
    95 protection

    B2 error = scanner or power supply error

    Brother 950/980: On copy or transmit they may produce black pages. Prone to bad scanner (CCD). Brother may provide a replacement CCD at no charge to the original owner. Sometimes leaving the unit unplugged for a few hours will solve the problem temporarily.

    Brother HL600 series laser printer toner will work in the laser fax & multifunction machines (part number TN100HL = TN100PPF). Drum units may be interchangeable as well (?).

    Brother 1350/1550/1950: Problem: Record paper jams. Solution: Replace upper shoot. P/N UF6058001. Although there seems to be nothing causing the jam, the upper shoot gets stress marks on the ends. Replace even though it is not broken. Thermal Transfer Machines: Only one side of the page is printing. Caused by the printhead latch being cracked. The latch is blue in color there is one on each side of the printhead, replace both latches.

    And if this was helpfull rate this solution as solved please?

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.

With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.

I looked that error "6D" and could not find anything.
Although there is a error 6E that denotes a hardware problem with the machine.

Doc cover open errror message on a mfc-8840d and cant' seem to print anything and the mode always is in fax mode and we can't seem to change it.

That error happens when the left hinge in the back breaks and the scanner cover won't shut all the way. temporarily you can tape the switch that is above the hinge and when the error is gone the modes should change again. The hinge is #LP2403001.

Unable to remove drum for cleaning

Remove the toner cartridge from the drum casing using the release lever. The drum is not to be removed from the drum casing. Just rotate the drum using the side button until you see the dirt mentioned. Use cotton swab to wipe dirt off. Be careful not to damage it. If that doesn't work, you need a need drum which is closely the same price as getting a toner cartridge. Refer to your Brother MFC 8840D manual that came with the machine. Alternatively, you can refer to the online manual.
