The following is Brother's take on your problem. All of their solutions have some merit but the one I'm leaning toward is overstuffing of the paper tray. It's common in most offices (and homes for that matter) to have a tendency to stuff the paper tray when it runs out.

Why is my paper curling in my HL 5240. Does it have to do with me putting in a new (non refurb) Drum?


Paper curling is usually due to paper that has absorbed too much moisture. Try a new **** of paper that is sealed and I would bet that the problem will disappear.

It curls all my cardstock!


You will get alittle curl on all prints with this unit, as the paper path is curled ** paper collected from the bottom tray will travel in a semi circle to exit the unit** but if the curl is excessive then it is possible the card stock is just alittle too think for the unit or the card stock is damp, if you are in a humid location its best to store you paper and cards in a dehumidifier box

Paper curls up when printing


Curling paper is almost always an indication of humidity in the paper. Toss the paper and get some fresh paper out of the ****. if the package the paper comes in was left open it may not be good either. open a new **** and try that

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

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 HL_5280SW Clack and pages curling


When paper is damp and runs threw the fuser in machine paper dries out and curls, try fresh paper, see this link about paper. Try a fresh sealed ream of quality paper

I dont have this model in Australia but it looks the same as the HL 5270 and there is bullitin released on these to eliminate paper curl, they upgraded the fuser and exit guide to fix this problem, yours is 2 months old so is covered by warranty, contact brother in your country to have it fixed.
