Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer
After looking at this for awhile, I am fairly certain that the problem lies in the mechanism which lifts up the paper in the paper tray. The gear system on the paper tray appears to function ok, so I believe it is the corresponding gear on the printer frame that is not functioning correctly. This gear is easy to move by hand and does not give resistance as if it were connected to a motor.
Has anyone seen this issue before? And if so, is there a way to fix it?
By manually lifting up the paper in the tray by placing a ball of paper under the lift gear I can make the printer feed correctly, but this is not a real solution... And yes, I have checked the rear stop clearance as well.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

most common problem on these is the rear paper stop pressing too hard against the rear of paper causing paper not to lift. make sure you have about an 1/8" gap.

Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

first, most common problem is the rear stopper in the cassette is pressed too tightly against rear of paper. leave 1/8" gap between stopper and rear of paper. if that doesn't help, pull cassette out and locate gear on left side of cassette bay and make sure it is not dislodged.

This unit has issues with the ink detect sensors. Have you tried a brand new cartridge? Other wise you may need a technician to solve the issue directly.
