Test first the usb cable, try a different one, and try also unplugging power cable from printer and computer (if it is a laptop also remove battery) for ten minutes.

If that did not fix it, you will probably have to reinstall the driver.

Here is the driver download page
Brother: MFC-8460N: Downloads: Others

A web page will open, select country, operative system etc., and click on download now loaction.
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
Afterdownloading,find the file, double click on the file, if you get introubles ,thenfollow instructions below to reset and reinstall:

My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this

Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

Brother MFC8460N Wireless printer going offline. All our folks using same wireless printer on Windows Vista OS. You guys have any break fix for this problem?

I had the same problem and call customer service (877-276-8437). Customer service will walk you through the process. You will have to configure you I.P. address along with other steps.
One thing I can tell you is to make sure under the Menu option...Network....WLAN...TCP/IP...BOOT Method....make sure it states STATIC.
