You have worn pickup rollers, as a temporary measure you could take them out and clean them with rubbing alcohol and a fine sandpaper. but idealy replace them.
it could also be a jam that is blocking check the place where feeding is slow and ensure there is no dust or paper fragments in there.

    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

    Paper jam/no paper fed


    make sure the photo paper is in glossy side face down,
    set the paper type to photo.

    If it keeps jamming it's because the paper feed is probably dirty and not taking the paper properly

    Won't photocopy / warning light flashing /


    The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.

    AL-800 cannot make copies jam light remains on with no jams


    First, is the paper being fed at all? If the paper is being fed and jams at the same location then a senor, actuator or switch is bad, out of place or broken. If the device will not clear the jam light, completely power down the device, unplug from wall, let set about 30 sec. to 1 min. and then replug in and see if it reset. If the device did not reset then again a senor, actuator, or switch is out of position ( being held up in the paper path). If the paper does not feed at all then the feed section is the problem. Clean the feed tire (s) the rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Listen to hear if the feed tire (s) are even turning. If feed is not turning then it could be clutch, motor or board problem.
