  2. If there is paper in the paper tray, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled, you should straighten it. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over and put it back into the paper tray.

We have a MFC8460N, when we go to make copies there is a loud clicking noise & it says 'paper jam' & will not make copies


Hi

The clicking sound comes from the paper tray. The problem is that the paper gets jammed when it feeds the paper and it will sound clicking because the printer cannot pick up the paper at the tray.

What you will do is to put bond paper into a tray but the paper head should not be so tighten. Just put the bond paper with the top paper in upward position.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Paper jam printer 3524


Clear the jammed paper as follows.

If the jammed paper is removed completely by using the information in the following steps, you can install the paper tray first, and then close the front cover and the printer will resume printing automatically.



If the printer does not start printing automatically, press the Go button. If the printer still does not start printing, please check that all the remaining jammed paper has been removed from the printer. Then try printing again.

Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.

Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.

Pull out the drum unit assembly. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer. If you cannot remove the drum unit assembly easily at this time, do not use extra force. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper tray. If the jammed paper can not be pulled out easily, turn the jam dial towards you as you gently pull the paper out.

Open the face-up output tray. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit. If the paper jam can be cleared, go to Step 7.

Open the jam clear cover. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.

Close the jam clear cover. Close the face-up output tray. If the paper jam still cannot be cleared, for HL-5130 and HL-5140 users go to Step 10, and for all other users go to the next step.

Pull the Duplex Tray completly out of the printer.

Pull the jammed paper out of the printer or the Duplex tray. Put the Duplex tray back into the printer.

Push the lock lever down and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit assembly. Take out the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
Put the toner cartridge into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.

Put the drum unit assembly back in the printer.

Put the paper tray in the printer.

Close the front cover.

My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this


Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

Grinding noise, no paper feeding from tray


This will work.

If you remove the paper tray you'll notice a black arm hanging down in the middle of the printer...this should be up inside (the cause is too much paper being put in the tray then when the user tries to remove the tray it hooks this and causes it to be in the way of the paper when it rises).

Disconnect the power and remove the toner/drum. Turn the printer upside down and remove the rollers from the purple plastic arm (shove the arm ahead to make this easier). Once you have this disconnected and removed you'll be able to see where the black plastic arm should go. You can push it back up in the printer without too much fuss. Replace the rollers where they go and put everything back together. Voila!

This has happened twice in the past year and both times this has fixed the issue right away. Good luck! :)

Paper curls on 8460 Brother


The following is Brother's take on your problem. All of their solutions have some merit but the one I'm leaning toward is overstuffing of the paper tray. It's common in most offices (and homes for that matter) to have a tendency to stuff the paper tray when it runs out.

PAPER JAM


If you pull the drum out of the machine. Close front cover. is the noise still there. If it is then you have a broken fuser gear. If noise is not there remove the toner cart. from drum reinstall the drum unit in machine see if noise is there. if noise is there then it will be the drum. If not reinstall the toner try that if noise comes back then it is your toner cart.

Brother mfc8460n message no tray. tray is in.


The sensor also has a spring to the left that enables it to go to its default location. If this spring is missing then the sensor will not detect the tray and display the "No Tray" message even though the tray is in place.
