Question about Brother MFC 9700 All-In-One Laser Printer
I have had my brother for about 3 years now, but about a year ago it started making this loud buzz/whirring noise. The noise starts before the printer actually starts feeding the paper to print, and lasts until the page is completely printed. Any idea what is causing this noise??
SOURCE: Paper not feeding
Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.

I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.

Make sure the end tab in the paper tray is not too tight. The tab where you set the paper length. The paper should have about 1/16 inch space and not hold the paper too tight.

There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the
machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short
fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently
scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your
problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
also if rollers are seen to be very clean and proper as new.then it can be paper pulling gears at the side of the rollers.if the gears are worn out from 1 side it will pull the paper but not in a proper way.in this case also rollers needs to be replaced,becasuse roller are not available in spare they come attached to the rollers.but a local printer repair shop can provide the only spare rollers as thay have it from old junk printers.

SOURCE: paper feed only works manual
I think you have a paper jam or some other tiny objects like a paper clip or the like blocking the ADF(Automatic Document Feeder) roller. You should open your ADF and check for anything obstructing the roller. If you see something just pull it off close the ADF and turn on the printer.
