Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer
I'm getting a "No Paper" error on my MFC-8860DN, there is paper in the tray, and when I turn it on or try to use it, all I hear is a clicking sound
You could have two problems. One the paper sensor in the cassette could be jammed or broken, The clicking could be the sensor jammed next to the feed roller. If not it could be the fuser gear is broken.

A common issue i've had on the 8860DN's is the plastic shaft (axle?) that the cassette lift gear is on breaks and therefore the paper isn't lifted up to the paper sensor. As it's all part of the factory moulded fram you need to strip out the gear train, drill out the broken shaft and put a screw through to act as a stronger metal shaft. The catch is the screw can not protrude out into where the cassette slides in and the head of the screw must be very small otherwise a gear rubs on it and will give you a motor error.
I've had 3 machines do this and repaired them all in the same manner.

Pull the paper tray out, look in the top middle by the roller holder, you will see a black plastic lever (edge actuator) hanging down, it should be flush with the roller, be careful when pushing back in place.
