    • You now have access to the black shroud that covers the photocell emitter & receiver. Pry it upwards and off with a small opening tool.

    • Inspect the paperguide: a small black spring loaded lever in the middle should move the "blocking piece" freely up and down.

    • Reassemble in reverse order, ensuring the blocking piece moves freely between the photocell emitter & receiver.

Sonuç

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order. This may be the fix you are looking for or perhaps your printer has a different issue. Clearly a slight knock to this plastic shroud meant the photocells were no longer aligned and this printer was unusable...until now.

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have spent untold hours on the phone with Brother — and finally ran across your post. Worked in 2 minutes. THANKS!

It’s not explicitly clear here - but what you are doing is removing and LEAVING OUT the black U shaped shroud from the device.

Wow, you nailed it! As soon as I read your observation that the machine always stopped at exactly the same spot - despite there being no paper jam - my mood changed. It worked like a charm. Thanks for sharing the experience with others.

Thank you! Totally worked. To add to post we removed the shroud and left it off.

Finally, no more jams! Took the advice/clarification of previous commentors and removed the black, plastic U-shaped shroud when I reassembled the printer. Keeping it in a safe place just in case… Not sure if I’m setting myself up for a catastrophic printer failure sometime in the future by removing a piece that came with the printer, so we shall see. But for now, I’ll claim the victory and save $200 for a new printer! Thank you soo much!
