I believe I need a Brother printer tech--the duplexer tray doesen't appear to slide out the front as illustrated in the link.
Technician: Freddy M., Technician replied 3 years ago
.
Not all machines come with a duplexer, if yours has one it does indeed slide out that way. The only reason it wouldn't is if it was damaged and needs to be replaced.

It does, or I have the wrong model number of 2240D, all Brother HL-2240D with a duplexer has a removable one. The link I sent you is diagrammed on that exact model. Which since yours will not come out as I just told you means it is damaged. From the image it looks like the jam may have damaged it. I am going to opt out, since you do not believe it can be removed. Please do not rate or you may not get another reply from anyone else. If anyone else has an idea they will reply the same way I did.

Eventually I've discovered the fix. The web site neglected to mention that the access was from the rear, and you didn't notice that the photo I sent was the front.

I could not tell it was from the front from the image no, I most likely could have if it was further away but not that close.
