Question about Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer will not initiate when inserting a page to copy.

Anytime I insert a page into the MCF-3240C, the machine fails to grab the paper and start-up. I can send a single page fax, by feeding the page in by hand, and then dialing the phone number and hitting the proper buttons. I have looked under the lid and do not see any obstructions or broken sensors in the paper path.

    This printer has only been used a s a fax machine from day 1. The paper feeder motor does not start to align the page prior to scanning. It can be aligned manually and then the motor will start and pull the paper after the fax number is entered and start button hit.

    When checking for an error code, the lcd says "not registered".

    you will have to be more clear on your terminology of functions and parts. the adf is the document feeder, the tray with white paper is the paper feeder, the scanner is the lamp that goes acroos the image. . explain again what is happening.

ok, thank you

you probably had a document that was not using 8.5 x 11 paper or the print settings were the printer to use the manual tray.

thanks adi

Front loading page grab problems.


See that top on which to place paper faxing is a green button should be positioned (to the right or left) in position with several sheets drawn as an indicator. I guess yours is positioned on a single paper which means it does not separate anything you ask.
Good luck to configuration

Machine not feeding paper through


try cleaning the rubber rollers with a damp cloth and make sure there clean. also check to see if the paper is making contact with paper.
if that fails check the leading edge of the paper for damage incase something maybe blocking paper.

Sending a fax


Its the phone line causing the problem. Check the line via the handset, if you hear static sounds you have a bad line. Contact your phone provider and have it checked/fixed.

Also check the feeding of your original by using the copy function. It is possible that you have a feeding issue but I would bet on it being the line.

SF-3100 Paper feed problem


You need to clean the friction pad. If you open the part where you put your sheets in to send faxes you will see a white pad behind the cover. You need to clean it, if it still feeds more than one page the pad is probably worn.

Material I'm trying to send doesn't 'feed'


does it try to grab the paper?
do you hear anything happening before the beep?

The machine recognises that there is paper, then you should hear the communication, once it has the correct signal telling it the line is available for transmission it will feed the paper.

look at the tires and see if they turn to feed the paper, is there something in the way, do the tires turn,???

if yes clean with alcohol and try again, if the tires are too smooth then they need to be changed.
