How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

The error message Cover is open indicates that the top cover, the fuser cover or the ADF (automatic document feeder) cover of your Brother machine is not completely closed.
Firmly close the scanner cover: Lift the scanner cover to release the lock (1). Gently push the scanner cover support down (2) and close the scanner cover (3) using both hands.
Press down on the front cover release button and open the front cover by pulling it towards you.
Lift the flat-bed scanner cover to release the lock, then gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover using both hands.
Continue Mode will force the machine to continue printing after the error message or the Status Monitor message indicates Replace Toner. Poor print quality may occur when using Continue Mode to print beyond the rated life of the toner cartridge.
b. Top printer cover: Covers the printing mechanism. Open only when installing or replacing ink cartridges, or when checking that roll paper or single sheets are feeding correctly.
Click [Start] – [All apps] – [Windows Tools] – [Control Panel] – [Hardware and Sound] – [Devices and Printers].
Click on the Brother Printer Driver and click Open print queue. Cancel the print jobs. To cancel all documents click Printer => Cancel All Documents (or Purge Print Documents). To cancel only chosen print jobs, click on the specific job to highlight it.
Click Windows/start -> (All) Programs -> Brother -> [model name] -> ControlCenter. The ControlCenter application will be loaded in the Task Tray near the system clock. (It appears as a blue square.)
To cancel or delete stuck print jobs, open the Services application and stop the “Print Spooler” service. Navigate to %windir%\System32\spool\PRINTERS, delete all the temporary files there, and then start the Print Spooler service again.
Open Settings -> Devices -> Printers and Scanners (or run a quick access URI command: ms-settings:printers ); Select a printer you want to remove and click Remove Device; Confirm the printer removal.
If the Paper and Back Cover LEDs are flashing and the Status LED is solid red, this indicates a paper jam in the rear or duplex tray. If you have just used the machine, some parts inside the machine are extremely hot. Leave the machine turned on for 10 minutes to cool down.
The message “No Paper” will appear on the LCD display if the Brother machine does not detect paper in the paper tray(Tray#1 or Tray#2) or MP(Multi-purpose) Tray. Resetting the Brother machine may resolve this issue.
