Question about Brother MFC-8460N Laser Printer
The machine will not recognize that paper is in the tray. Therefore it will not print.
It appears that the mechanisim that should lift the paper up against the sensor does not rotate the plastic gears to lift the paper. Therefore the visual gauge that shows the fullness of the tray stays a what looks like a full tray when the tray is not full. The metal plate does not rise up to force the paper up against the little plastic sensor hanging down from above.
Remove your tray.
Push it from the back and make it sure it's tight against the paper.
Move the blue button to the "unlocked" position.
Should be good to go!

I found the problem was with MS Word. The tray has to be set to Tray 1 and not MP.
