Make sure the end tab in the paper tray is not too tight. The tab where you set the paper length. The paper should have about 1/16 inch space and not hold the paper too tight.

Grating noise from paper feed mechanism


Usually the noise is coming from the Swing Plate Assembly. This is an assembly with plastic gears that the fuser rides on and if they loose a tooth, it makes noise

My brother HL-5240 won't feed from paper tray, only manual feed. It makes a clicking noise. Toner is newer, definitely not empty. I've tried all the tricks of removing some paper, using different paper,...


Pull out a paper cassette, lift up the printer and under you see paper feed roller (it is rubber), just clean roller with cloth and water or alcohol.

Alarm and data lights are on. Won't feed paper and makes load noise when you hand feed the paper


When the alarm and data lights are on, means that the toner is empty and you wont be able to print until you purchase a new toner and replace it.
Copy the link below to see how to replace the toner.

Manual paper feed works but not automatic feed.


I've been told labels have to be manually fed on that printer.

Paper tray won't feed. suggestions Brother 5240 boss is ticked!!!


Is it making any noise? Mine was making a popping sound and I took the tray out, unlocked the back paper length guide and gave the paper a little more room. (be sure to put it in the locked position when you are done). That appears to have fixed the problem for now.

My Brother 5250DN is not pulling paper through. What could it be?


do a test print... see you manual. You hold a button for 3 seonds and it'll print a test page. If that works you should be OK. Make sure that your paper tray is NOT over loaded. Maybe try less paper. Try the manual feed using one sheet of paper

Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer Paper jam


Most likely something has broken in the loading gear. Never pull paper against the normal flow, of course, you know that now. Unless you can locate the broken part and replace it, I'm afraid there's not much you can do other than manually feed the paper.

Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!


Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!
