Before I had checked all of the above I pulled the main paper tray out to inspect the paper, tray, and gears, this time after a cooling down my frustration level. I found a simple answer: The paper size setting tab had moved. Even though I had a second paper feeder, and had tried swapping the paper trays, that did not work since that paper size setting tab was off as well, probably due to slamming the tray home in frustration. Ahhhhh, technology, you are my mistress.

No paper feed and Loud clicking noise. REPLACE CARTRIDGE.
[TONER CARTRIDGE HOLDER] COULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS. roller could be jammed stopping the gears driving the roller. remove the toner cartridge try to move the gears on left back corner.[DO NOT FINGER THE ROLLER] BEST REPLACE. But if you are brave...if you can't move the gear drive,
lube the end at the no gear end,, Perhaps best to buy a new carier...

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

    To which gears do you refer? Do you even know anything about this specific printer?

Printer makes a horrible sound when trying to print also the blue button on the right side making a loud clicking noise. the paper won't feed.8860 dn


I have had the exact same problem. The problem is in the tray. It won't raise the paper properly despite how much paper you have in it. Make sure that all of the springs are there, and that the plastic sensors are correct.

I've found it useful to just buy another tray. You can find it as low as $30-35.

It's a very typical mechanical problem, but most likely resolved by changing the tray.

Paper will not feed from tray and makes a loud clicking noise. Says there is no paper in tray


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.

If the rear guide is tight, or even snug, that is the problem. You can check for this by depressing the lever on the right front of the tray. Depressing the lever should raise the stack of paper out of the tray so that it can slide forward.

If you remove the paper from the tray, you will see calibration marks for the paper size you are using. Unlock the rear paper guide, squeeze the release, and move the guide ot the mark for the size paper you are using. For example, it you are using letter size paper, the read guide should point to "LTR".

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

Clicking noise with MFC-8640D another case


Usually it's because the paper is too tight in the feed tray. The paper length tab on the end away from the feed roller is too tight. If you cant rotate the gear on the paper tray and lift the paper, it's too tight for the machine to lift.

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.

Noisey vibration


Dear Rab,

Hope this solves your problem. I understand that you are having problem only on the reversei side tractor feed problem. We have encountered same problem even in different models and brands. Please check the Lever Paper Fed Selector is engaged well, so that the gears give less space clearance to each other. Please check the tractor tray is locked tightly both ends. Please check if the grease on the paper tray and contacting gears are not dried up. Please check also the paper path if there are remains or clogged parts of paper perforation holes. Finally check the flatten (stainless still or hard plastic) paper against the roller if not to tight. You can check manually by turning the paper roller knobs back and forth. But take NOTE: Turn Off the power in doing so, it may destroy the knob. Have a nice day.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

Outgoing fax makes loud clicking noise


2 different problems here. 1st is with document feed and 2 is with paper feed.

1st prob seems to be with the paper feed roller not meshing at the gear. Probably a broken piece on the lower document tray assembly. No real fix for this unless you can strip it out and haywire it.

2nd prob is probably a poorly meshing drum unit. Examine the gear teeth on both the drum and the machine. As you have replaced the drum already (presumably with a brand new one) You might possibly find a missing or badly worn tooth on the messhing gear in the machine.
