Last night my downstairs neighbor called me and asked if I could come down and try to clear a paper jam in her fax machine. Why she called me is beyond me, because I am clueless when it comes to electronics, but I went down anyway, to see what I could do.
It was a Brother Intellifax 775.
It had a trapdoor like plastic lid over the paper, which looked like it could be lifted out to give better access. I wiggled it and sure enough it came right off.
I cleared the jammed paper. But then I was unable to get the paper cover back on. And the machine won’t work without it. It looks like there may be a little switch that detects if the paper cover is in the correct position.
I’ve tried Googling for a Brother help forum, but haven’t come up with anything so far.
I’d be grateful for any ideas you might have on how to solve or get help solving this puzzle.
