Remove the paper tray and look on the underside for the feed roller.. use a damp cloth and clean it by rubbing from side to side. Replace the paper tray and try again.

Mfc 7860dw will not print from paper tray


Check the paper level in tray 1 and keep the paper within the levels indicated by the arrows on the side. I had this same problem, and although the paper tray accommodates the extra paper, the printer obviously does not like it and defaults to the manual feed.

My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this


Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

It won't print - says manual feed - load paper tray. Its a brand new printer (Brother HL-4040CDN) and the paper tray is full


The printer has an "alternate" feed, i.e., for envelopes and/or for special paper.

Open the door to access that "manual" tray, take some paper from the "normal" tray, and insert the paper into the "manual" tray.

Or, on the printer's controls, set the "standard" feed, rather than the "manual" feed, and press PRINT.

Paper is in the feed tray, but it continues to say NO Paper??? Brother MFC-8460N any suggestions?


Could be a tab or spring broken off of the feed tray, dirty feed roller can cause that error when paper doesn't feed. Paper guide too tight so that paper can't lift to the feed roller also a possibility. Sensor above paper stack out of position.. many possibilities.

Message keeps paper tray is full and it is full.


pull cassette out and look inside the cassette bay on the left side. there is a white gear that lifts up your paper. that might have come unseated. make sure its seated in right by pushing it back in. last but not least, make sure you don't have your rear paper stopper in cassette pushing paper too hard against the front of cassette preventing paper from raising up.

Paper tray is full and the paper light keeps flashing.


First check the machine for paper jams. If not, remove the paper from the paper tray and reinstall it. Then try to print from the MP tray.If this works, check paper size settings on the printer driver, or the small black arm which hangs down next to the paper pick up roller, and is the paper sensor.

YOU MIGHT TRY CLEANING THE PAPER FEED ROLLER WITH ISOPROPHYL ALCAHOL, THE ROLLER IS ABOVE WHEN THE PAPER TRAY IS REMOVED
