SOURCE: Loud clicking noise
I wrote to Brother regarding the loud clicking sound I got on my printer after I changed the paper. Like the above printer made really loud clicking sounds and would not pull paper from the tray - this was the only solution that worked for me.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer and remove the
paper from the paper tray.
2. Check that the paper tray is set to the correct paper size. The
papertray length can be adjusted by releasing the blue locking tab found
at the back of the paper tray (not all paper trays are equipped with a
locking tab). Once the tab has been unlocked press the adjacent blue
lever which allows you to increase or decrease the trays overall
length.Once the correct paper size has been selected, move the blue
locking tab into the locked position (only if your paper tray is
equipped with a locking tab). The tray width can be adjusted by pressing
the blue paper-guide release lever which will allow you to slide the
side paper guide to fit the paper width.
NOTE: If the paper guide is too tight against the rear edge of the
paper stack, the machine may make a loud clicking noise since the gears
that drive the tray up may be binding. Be sure to leave a very small
gapat the rear edge of the paper stack before locking the tab.
3. Insert the paper into the paper tray with the top edge of the paper
towards the front of the paper tray and the print side down. Make sure
that the paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark on
the side paper guides.
4. Press the Go button three times to print the Print Settings to test
if the noise still occurs when printing.
If the noise still occurs:
1. Power off the printer using the power switch located on the right
side of the printer. Open the front cover.
2. Remove the drum/toner unit and close the front cover.
3. Power the printer back on.
If the noise continues, the printer will need service.

Thhis error is usually due to a dirty photcell (sensor) in the tray 2 paper feed assembly or a broken sensor flag in the same assembly. Start be removing all cartridges and the transfer belt. Look in the bottom of the printer below the lowest cartridge slot for a removeable cover. That's the area your problem is probably in. I have incuded a link to a free PDF of complete service manual below. Good luck.

Remove main tray. Check adjustable paper back stop. If the backstop is set so that the paper sit too tightly in the tray....it will prevent the spring loaded front portion of the tray to lift up allow paper to contact the pickup roller. The clicking sound you hear is the paper lift mechanism trying to push up the paper. Arrange both backstop and sidestops to allow some movement of paper in tray.

hopefully we can stop problem before it gets worse, take paper tray all the way out of machine, look at back of tray where paper stop is, move to LTR make sure arrow is pointing directly to it, not before od after, then lock it in, the pictograhm has a pad lock symbol to show locked and unlocked. if the blue tape is still in paper tray, remove it. hopefully no damage done to pick up assembly, or gears on paper tray
