If its going through the drum, then its stopping at the fuser area.

you have a broken gear on the fuser. the fuser will need to be repaired. approx. cost for fuser repair will be about $75.00

Noisy printer


The printer or the drum/toner unit may cause the grinding or clicking noise.
  1. Power off the printer and open the front cover.
  2. Remove the drum/toner unit and close the front cover.
  3. Power the printer back on.
If the grinding or clicking noise dose not occur when the drum/toner unit is removed from the printer, then the drum/toner unit is the cause of the noise. Install a brand new drum unit and/or toner cartridge may be necessary to stop the noise.

Brother Laser Printer, paper gets stuck and printing wipes off.


Opened up the back and found there is a plastic cog wheel on the end of an orange drum, which must be the Fuser Unit, which was damaged. So the paper was getting as far as the drum but the rollers to pull it through the Fuser Unit were not going round. A new Fuser Unit seems to be about £99 plus VAT and I don't supose a new printer is much more than that. So if anyone has a spare Fuser Unit for a Brother HL 5140 which is still in good working order I would be happy to consider buying it. Alternatively I have 2 x spare drums DR3000 and 1 x toner TN3060 for sale !!

I have a Brother mFC 8640D - paper feeds through


The black exit rollers on top get slick from the paper and toner, they need to be cleaned with a damp rag. You hold the rag against them 1 at a time and open and close the front door so they will rotate while you hold the rag on them. Should help the paper exit.

Prints more toward grey than black. Never professionally service. On 3rd or 4th toner cartridge/refill. Plus, some small "gloops" or spots of toner getting fused to paper every now and then. Have no idea...

Clicking noise with MFC-8640D


Make sure that the paper guides in your paper tray are not holding the paper too tight against the front of the tray, there should be about 1/16 inch play so that the paper can be lifted to the roller easily. Also take out your toner and drum and turn it on, if the grinding noise is gone you may need a new toner, some refilled toners are too tight to turn properly.

Grinding noice when printing


Most likely problem is the Fixer Gear, seems to be an issue with these printers. Part number is LJ7416001 but does not look to be the easiest to Replace
