Sounds like you need a paper pick up repair kit
Go to hp.com
support, put in your machine and something like repair paper rollers
And it will kick back a kit number.
Then go to the WEB, to one of the reseller or even ebay and put in the kit number and watch what happens.
They are about 10 bucks for the smaller printers, color could be more

Paper feed results in a clicking and no feed


This sounds as if the paper pick up assembly is not lifting the paper-up to meet the rollers. This is like a ratcheting sound when lifting. When the paper gets high enough it hits a sensor arm and the copier will indicate paper in the cassette. If it doesn't lift it will quit but will never indicate paper in cassette. Does the other paper cassette feed? I know I've had to replace the paper pick-up assembly before because of this problem and is very expensive. Good luck.

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 !

Rollers make a loud noise when printing...do we need new rollers


Does it make a groaning sound, when picking up the paper from the cassette tray? If it does, sounds like you need to order a set of feed rollers. You can tell if there worn down, just by feeling if there's still some treading, just like a bald tire. Good Luck!

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N


Hello,
The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.
Thanks,
Pat

Will not pick up paper. It makes a loud clicking


Check the tab at the end of the paper tray, needs to be right on the arrow for your paper size, too tight won't allow picking up paper. If OK, take out paper tray and set on a table, the gear closest to the table has a flat area that needs to be level with the bottom of the tray or the table. If slanted up you need to bend the paper lifter bar under the front edge of the paper so that the gear is level again.

Brother Laserjet 8860dn printer not picking up/feeding paper


The paper is not feeding from the paper tray. The loud click is alarming, but not the problem. Check the adjustments in the paper tray. The left and right guides should be snug, but the rear guide should give between a 1/16 inch and a 1/8 inch of free play.

To check, press the purple lever at the right front of the tray. The leading edge of the stack of paper in th etray should rise out of the tray so that the top piece of paper can be fed into the drum assembly. If the stack does not rise evenly, or will not rise, the rear adjustment is the problem.

You can inspect the springs in the paper tray by removing the plastic cover that is above the white translucent roller in the tray. To do this turn over the tray and release the catches with a little screwdriver. I do not think there is a missing spring. While you have the cover off clean the lnt from behind the roller.

Keeps saying no paper Makes loud clicking noise


The clicking sounds seems to be made by the small gears on the side of the tray. When you move the gears, it should push a plate beneath the paper upwards, and the paper with it, allowing the paper to be feed.

I'm not sure what I did to fix it. I removed the paper and cleaned both feeding rectangles (to the front of the tray -- nearest you). One is underneath the paper and the other is in the front, center.

I then made sure that, when I move the biggest gear (the one that isn't round) that the paper moves upwards.

Sounds like the gears are out of alignment for the paper pick up tray.
