Does it only make the noise when printing. Do you hear the noise when sending out faxes? I have heard grinding noises onlt when using poor quality toner refills, or the fuser gear and or drive gear asm is stripped. First try a known good OEM toner.

SOURCE: Says paper jam, but it is not really jammed

Not just if the flags are moving freely but the sensors can also be dirty. Clean the sensors with a blower brush or can of air. If you use an air can DO NOT pull the trigger all the way, only fire at about half or you could damage the sensor.

Hi. Open the document control panel and look in with a flashlight and see if the jam switch is stuck. also look for a small piece of paper that might be stuck in there. The jam is in where you put documents in to fax out. Lawrence

You can change the Fax ID in the menu. It should be located in Menu/Set 0,3 (Station ID). Enter your new fax number, menu/set, new phone number, menu/set, your "name", menu/set. And you're set.

Says manual feed. Load paper


There is a manual fee slot just above the paper tray. Sounds like the manual feed slot isn't closed all the way. Here's a link to support for your machine: MFC 7860DW Others Brother Solutions Center Note there is a firmware update available.

Brother MFC-J825DW false paper jam error


In my case that was registration actuator leaning to the side.
I was able to find it by removing back cover, and gently moving black plastic actuator to the side (stick).
It's prety well described in Brother "SERVICE UPDATE No. F1400" that I googled.
Good luck

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N


Hello,
The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.
Thanks,
Pat
