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, 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, but will see calibration marks for the paper size you are using. Unlock the read paper guide n the tray, 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".

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.

Open the file you are trying to print, go to "file", "page setup", "Paper" and choose "Default tray" under paper source. It may give you an error message that the margins are outside of the paper. Click on "Fix this", then you can print. I had the same problem.

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.

My Brother 8860 DN does not copies, yet it can print . The menu screen only allows fax, not scan or copy.


This is commonly an issue with the Keypad PCB. We can get you pricing on parts if you want to try this as a repair. Does the machine beep 3 times when you hit the copy or scan keys?
