There is a flag that is out of place in the printer. Remove the paper tray and you will see 2 flags on the underside of the printer. Power off, remove the toner cartridge and turn the printer upside down. I removed the support bar to get to the flag. You will see the sensors on a small board near the paper rollers. Make sure both flags are in the middle of the sensors. You may have to gently force it back into place. Make sure both flags move freeely. Reinstall the bar, fip printer right side up and install toner back in. Power on and check.

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 MFC 8440 makes very loud noise when printing/copying


Very commonly a broken gear on the right side of the fuser. Replace the fuser and this will fix your issue. Let me know if you need a part number and pricing.

Good luck!

Brother MFC 8460 N, all in one copier. Loud clicking noise (from tray area) when trying to make a copy, it will not do a copy now, says to load paper - tray has fresh, higher quality paper in it. Is this...


Make sure the stopper in the paper tray is snug against the paper. sounds like the paper is not properly in place and the tires are making the noise.
Could be it's trying to lift the tray and it can't, determine why; something stuck, out of place,

Brother mfc8440 clicking sounds while printing


I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.
