Yes there is and I know your problem have a look at the left hinge on lid that you lift to put down an original for copying, it will be breaking apart, the switch is black in that same corner on doc feeder base, as the hinge breaks apart the doc feed lifts in that corner causing "doc cover open" cause that switch no longer gets pushed in when lid is shut

Dodgy repair - tape switch closed, but doc feeder will not work properly/can use glass.

Repair - Easy removal of three screws and replacing 20buck hinge bought from brother dealer...part no.LE8731001 Hinge assy left.

Now that's FIXYA!

Just installed a new drum unit in my Brother DCP1000, and it's still reading "Replace Drum soon"

heya!
this stands for brother mfc-8440 as in the title.
you need to reset the "drum counter" of your printer..
to do so try one of those

Brother Laser Printers:

After replacing the drum unit, keep the front cover open (make sure the power is on). Press and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Once the four LED's light up, close the front cover. Make sure the drum LED is off. The counter is reset!

Brother Fax Machines:

Open the front cover. Press the CLEAR/BACK button. Press 1, when the display shows accepted.

tip

Doc feeder Nogo/ Doc cover open?

If you can use the glass and can print, but you cant fax or use doc feeder, then have a look at Left hinge it will be cracked, If you push down on left corner you should be able to use doc feeder when in that position

Here is part that breaks on every machine.

Error mesage

No solution, but I have the same problem. THe printer starts up fine, I hear no grinding noises or other "funny" nioses, and then displays no error message... UNTIL I ask it to print. Then I get a message that says, "Pls (please) Open Cover".

I open the cover and it says "Please Close Cover".

I close the cover and it says, "Please Open Cover"

and this happens forever!

Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help me?
