Brother MFC-8460n paper jam

I have a 8460n with about 17000 page count on it and when i go to print, or copy any thing i get a paper jam. its like the paper goes through the drum part way and about 2 inches of paper hangs out of the fuser when it stops and says paper jam. tried a lot of stuff to fix this but not sure how to work on this thing.

HAVE REPLACE THE DRUM AND TONER CARTRAGE AND NOW WILL ONLY PRINT ONE COPY AND SAYS PAPER JAM. OPEN FRONT PANEL AND REMOVE DRUM AND CLOSE PANEL AND THIS ALWAYS SOLVES THE PROBLEM BUT WILL ONLY PRINT ONE...



Welcome to fixya



I have a solution for this

It sounds like you need to remove the toner cartridge and check for half broken pages below the toner. Some of the parts inside will be hot to the touch so take caution when attempting to remove the pages while the system is still hot.

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.

Mfc 8460n paper jam


Check to see if this happens when you use the drop down manual feed tray. If your printer works fine using the manual feed tray the problem is with your paper tray. Check to make sure it is set to letter size. I've found that sometimes the 'teeth' holding the paper stop on the paper tray wear out and when the printer goes to pick up paper, it pushes the paper stop out of position causing the printer to think it's using a different, much longer size paper thus preventing it from feeding all the way through. You'll probably need a new paper tray if this is the case.

I had a similar problem, more of a snapping sound than clicking, but this is what worked for me - pull the paper tray out and "loosen" the rear paper limiter by unlocking it, move it back about 1/8-1/4" and then re-lock it

you cannot clear this unless there is still a presence of paper inside the machine.

or you can open and close your machine once you are cleared of any paper jammed, be sure not to leave and removed all residual paper in the paper path, the tiny sensor would recognize any sort of this and thus make your machine unoperable.
