The feed rollers need to be replaced. The squeak is the worn rollers sliding over the edge of the paper.

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 2100 not picking up paper from main tray

You could try simply cleaning the feed roller but it desirves more than that from the sounds of your relationship

The fed rollers are probally worn and need replacement,as you have had it for a long time and it has treated you well why not do the machine a favour and have a maintence kit fitted.

SOURCE: paper feed

Check tray 1 there should be an arm hanging down in the center of the tray the arm goes thru a slot in the metal plate. This arm moves when you install paper in tray 1. If the arm is missing or not in the slot the machine will think paper is in tray 1 and try to feed from tray 1. You can try changing the paper size setting for tray one to something other than the size in tray 2.

For example If tray 2 is set for 8.5x11 set tray 1 for legal.
The machine should then pull the correct size based on the print job.
Hope this helps

Cannnot copy a double sided document to cardstock


This is normal. The cardstock is fed from the manual feed or bypass tray and when selected the duplex option goes away. Many manufacturers do this....meaning they do not allow duplexing from the bypass tray. For the same reason they do limit automatic duplexing to standard or near standard papers. Cardstock is specifically excluded from duplexing obviously due to it's thick nature and when duplexing the paper has to be turned over and go thru paper paths that are not suitable for thick paper. If you must make a 2 sided copy using cardstock you will have to run the sheet thru the machine 2 times, also known as manual duplex.
Hope this helps.

Paper is in the feed tray, but it continues to say NO Paper??? Brother MFC-8460N any suggestions?


Could be a tab or spring broken off of the feed tray, dirty feed roller can cause that error when paper doesn't feed. Paper guide too tight so that paper can't lift to the feed roller also a possibility. Sensor above paper stack out of position.. many possibilities.

Feeds ok from tray 1 but not tray 2 which is 11x17. There are slight buffed marks at on the papaer in 4 spots but paper wont advance. marks are about 1/4 inch long


those marks are the rollers trying to move the paper. check to see if your tray 2 is lifting.if it is then replace the feed rollers.

Brother laser printer wont print on cardstock My brother printer won't feed teh card stock paper. It used to work but now it won't feed it, normal paper works fine. Even if i nudge the card stock paper,...


If there printer is not able to print on card stock then check the recommend
card stock paper thickness, if the printer works with normal paper but not card stock then there is problem in the card stock and by using this paper may also damage the rollers on the printer and make the printer useless ...

Good luck...

Paper too thick?


You will need to use the manual feed and insert the cardstock one page at a time. First look at the rear of the printer for a purple dial. Roll the dial downward. This will allow the printer to exit straight out the back of the machine. Allow enough room at the rear of the printer so the cardstock doesn't hit anything on the way out. Next look at the front of the machine at the **** just above the paper tray. You'll see an envelope icon. Align the cardstock when manual feeding one sheet at a time to the left side of the **** next to the envelope icon. When you hit "file, print" select MANUAL FEED in the print window.

The 4L will only do cardstock by one at a time in the way noted above as the feed system isn't strong enough to make the sharp bend coming out of the tray or in the back to bend it around and into the top tray.
