Paper won't feed. White part in back fell off

A small white plastic piece has fallen off in back.

White piece has small crack that seems repairable.

I can't see where it fits back on.

Keep getting "No Paper Feed" message since the paper isn't getting picked up by the rollers.

The printer is trying to feed the paper and when it quits the top page has significant roller marks on it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This could be caused by any of the below mentioned things:

Paper pull-in roller holder

Base pad in the paper tray

Jam clear cover

PF-related gears

Main PCB

Paper feed motor

Problem here is that we do not know what part broke and fell out. Amazingly enough I found the service manual for the device and you can download it here I do hope that this will help you out. Good Luck to you and your printer and let us know how it is going.

Your link does not appear to be working for a service manual. Could you repost for the same problem- a small H shaped white piece fell out when reloading the paper tray. Can not tell where it came from and would like to see a diagram of where it should go in case need to replace completely. Thank you.

Yeah, I would really love it if that link would work. Thanks for the suggestion.

Just as a guess but the little white peice that fell out may just be a little roller in the back that helps the paper feed more smotthly. If you take out the paper jam cover ther should be a twin roller and if there is only one than it most likely came from there. It just snaps back in. Hope this helps if you haven't figured it out yet.

I'm looking for a replacement paper tray for a MFC 240C printer it only has the one tray, but all I have found is replacement trays that look different and cost nearly as much as a new multi function machine, I saw a new printer in K-Mart for 99.99 today , why are the replacement parts more than a new machine?

Not an answer. Another question. I have the same problem...the little white "H" shaped white plastic piece fell off. For the life of me I cannot figure out where to put it. Please help. Describe in detail or show a picture, drawing, diagram, etc. Thank you so much.

That little white piece is called the Paper Pick-Up shoe, and apparently it is a ongoing problem with the MFC 240c printer. The MFC 240c is a great printer, really, but after time that little piece wears out and I am currently trying to find a way to replace it without having to discard the whole machine?
