Paper from Tray doesn't load.

Brother 8460N 4 in 1 Printer/Fax/Scanner/Copier. Doesn't load the paper from the tray. All that happens is a clicking noise. What is happenning is that when trying to print it moves the pare in the up to the rollers but then drops back down before the paper can get fed in to get printed on. When it falls,back down, that is when you here the clicking or 'snapping' sound.

Put paper in the upper slot (known as the MP), pull all paper from lower tray, send document to print and see if it prints ok - if it does, the problem may be with the lower print drawer - there is a spring under metal pad that lifts paper so it's grabbed by the printer paper transport. the spring may have broken or become dislodged so separation pad (the metal plate holding paper up) remains down - the transport "thinks" there is no paper

This also occurs when the paper size slide bar lock in the back of tray does not hold the paper in position and the paper moves back as little as 1/8 of an inch.. Move the slide back into position, relock it again and be gentle when sliding the tray back into position.

Brothers MFC 8460n no paper when there is paper in tray


Hi, could be the different size of paper. Look, when you send a job to print, if the size of your document is not the same size of the paper (tray 1), the machine will use the MU tray. This tray no have limitation of size paper. Try to put paper on this tray e look what happens. Other way, looks on the Printer, configurations, the size of the paper (tray 1). And compare with the size of your document. Good luck bro

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.

Problem for Brother MFC-8460N error message no paper in tray tried cleaning. re loading, on-off. etc.


Make sure the paper guide is not too tight, also set the paper tray on a table and look at the gear on the side at the bottom. The flat part of that gear must be level with the bottom of the tray, if not the metal under the lifter is bent and needs to be straightened. also tip the printer on it's back and make sure the sensor levers by the feed roller move freely.

Paper is in the feed tray, but it continues to say NO Paper??? Brother MFC-8460N any suggestions?


Could be a tab or spring broken off of the feed tray, dirty feed roller can cause that error when paper doesn't feed. Paper guide too tight so that paper can't lift to the feed roller also a possibility. Sensor above paper stack out of position.. many possibilities.

No paper in traY


make sure the tray is set for letter size, many times the handle moves and the settings on the tray change, so the paper moves back to the settings of legal paper, so when the printer tries to load paper, it cant.

Mfc 8460n paper jam


Check to see if this happens when you use the drop down manual feed tray. If your printer works fine using the manual feed tray the problem is with your paper tray. Check to make sure it is set to letter size. I've found that sometimes the 'teeth' holding the paper stop on the paper tray wear out and when the printer goes to pick up paper, it pushes the paper stop out of position causing the printer to think it's using a different, much longer size paper thus preventing it from feeding all the way through. You'll probably need a new paper tray if this is the case.

Its saying the paper tray is empty even though there is paper


the problem is with the paper sesor in the paper tray. It must
be under the tray lift mechanism.
This is located in the right front part of the paper tray.

Document jam


Have you checked the underside of the paper tray? There are three places where a jam might occur and the last place I looked was under the paper tray - I didn't expect that one!
