Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
Appears to be a mechanical problem. I slip paper or envelope into MP tray, so that detector is lifted up a bit. Normally, nothing further needs to be done. Ths signals the machine to draw paper from the MP tray tray rather than T1. But nothing happens.

SOURCE: Can't print from the MP tray?
When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.
You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.

Remove your tray.
Push it from the back and make it sure it's tight against the paper.
Move the blue button to the "unlocked" position.
Should be good to go!

most common problem on these is the rear paper stop pressing too hard against the rear of paper causing paper not to lift. make sure you have about an 1/8" gap.

Easy one. Open your tray back up and make sure that the paper settings are reflecting the type of paper that is in the tray. The times that I have seen the issue that you just described, the paper setting were off... thus causing this issue.
If that does not work. Powercycle printer. When it comes ready go to the Paper Menu, then to Default Paper source. Make sure that setting reflects the tray that you would like the printer to print from.
Hope that helps.
