The sensor also has a spring to the left that enables it to go to its default location. If this spring is missing then the sensor will not detect the tray and display the "No Tray" message even though the tray is in place.

Is the tray required for operation or could it be by-passed to operate on MP only? If so, how can i do it?

Hi,

There is a paper white spring loaded lift actuator on the left hand of the paper tray, if this is missing, buy a new paper tray, or baby sitting it.

Once you take the tray out, before you slide it back, trip the white plastic profile,on the lower left hand side of the slot,

Print unable 71


Print Unable 71 means Polygon Mirror Failure on the Brother HL-4040, MFC-9840 and MFC-9440.
Pretty safe to say it means the same thing on the MFC-8880.

The Polygon Mirror is part of the Laser Unit, and its rpm isn't within specs.
The Laser Unit must be replaced.

We have a MFC8460N, when we go to make copies there is a loud clicking noise & it says 'paper jam' & will not make copies


Hi

The clicking sound comes from the paper tray. The problem is that the paper gets jammed when it feeds the paper and it will sound clicking because the printer cannot pick up the paper at the tray.

What you will do is to put bond paper into a tray but the paper head should not be so tighten. Just put the bond paper with the top paper in upward position.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

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.

''TONER LIFE END'' MESSAGE


Toner probably isn't empty, but the machine shuts down at a specifc count on the cartridge regardless of actual consumption...don't you love it?
Your replacement cartridge was probably a remanufactured one and didn't have the toner reset lever properly set.
