Jam Rear

Please follow the steps below to solve the problem:


NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.


  1. Open the front cover. Leave the machine turned on for 10 minutes to cool down.


    After you have just used the machine, some internal parts of the machine will be extremely hot. When you open the front or back cover (back output tray) of the machine, DO NOT touch the shaded parts shown in the illustration. If you do this, you may burn yourself.


  2. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper may be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly, or this may release the paper so you can pull it out from inside of the machine.


    • We recommend that you place the drum unit and the toner cartridges on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.

    • To prevent damage to the machine caused by static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.
