SOURCE: Our Brother MFC-8860DN will only feed paper from

Printers have rollers that grab and feed the paper. They can get dirty over a period of time, or lose some of their "stickiness". Sometimes they're easily accessible, sometimes not, depending on the printer. They can be cleaned with alcohol and q-tip or cloth. The weight of the paper is probably causing just enough resistance to make the printer think there's a jam, but there could also be a problem with the mechanics of the sensor assembly, or a fragment of paper jammed up somewhere. Sometimes you can get it working without taking the machine apart, and sometimes you can't. Make sure you don't void any warranties, of course, but with some investigation, you might get lucky. You've probably done most of what I suggested, but you might take one more look. Good luck!

SOURCE: clicking noise with MFC-8640D

Make sure that the paper guides in your paper tray are not holding the paper too tight against the front of the tray, there should be about 1/16 inch play so that the paper can be lifted to the roller easily. Also take out your toner and drum and turn it on, if the grinding noise is gone you may need a new toner, some refilled toners are too tight to turn properly.

SOURCE: brother mfc-440cn printer printing crooked

There is the possibility that the scanner assembly has jumped a tooth on the drive belt on one side so the scanner is just slightly crooked. To correct this the scanner assembly would have to be taken apart enough to correctly line the assembly back up. I wouldn't recommend that you try this yourself unless you have some experience at this sort of thing. Contact Brother for an authorized repair center near you for assistance.

SOURCE: MFC-9440 CN Laser Printer is producing vertical color line streak

Colored vertical streaks - looks like a transfer belt problem, and it's not user fixable. You may need a new belt unit - you can find it for around US$ 80-120, but you may want to have a technician inspect the unit first, since it could arguably be the drum instead, and you don't want to fork around US$ 100 and replace the wrong part.
You can try showing a printer sample at a print shop; by looking at the streaks it is possible to diagnose drum, fuser or belt problems.
Here you find a much more detailed page, for another printer model, but the issues are mainly the same for most color printers:

Wipe the paper feed rollers with a clean rag wetted with plain water. You can also replace the feed rollers, search for "paper feeding kit" for this printer. Should be $20 to $30.

Check the rails the paper tray sits upon. see if the one on the right side is damaged or dislodged. You didn't say if the noise happened when you printed from the 2nd paper tray.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

I AM USING A BROTHER MFC 7340 SINCE 1 YEAR: NO PROBLEM EXCEPT WHEN PRINTING FROM PAPER TRAY, THE PRINTER SQUEAKS AND MAKES NOISE THAT IF ANYTHING ELSE WAS DOING THE SAME NOISE YOU WOULD THINK IT NEEDED...


The problem actually is probably due to needing lucubration. I would apply graphite lube to any rollers or gears in the user serviceable area. print 100 blank pages to make sure that the lube is spread thoroughly through the printer.

Good Luck!

Brother MFC 9440CN - I am getting "Document Jam"


Take the cover off of the ADF, rub clean the rollers with a damp cloth. Make sure there is no paper stuck in the area Also, check that the sensor flags are activating. just move them back and they should bounce back to normal position. Cleaning should do the trick.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

Brother mfc 9880 fax/copier makes grinding noise and has paper jams


Probably a broken Hot Roller gear in the fuser. The fuser is the section in the back, that presses the print between a pair of hot rollers to melt the powdered toner into the paper, making the image permanent. That combination of heat and pressure makes the fuser vulnerable to breakage in any laser printer or copier. The HR (hot roller) gear is a ring around one end of the heated roller, and it sometimes breaks apart.
The MFC 9880 isn't listed on Brother's US service website, so I can't tell you whether you need to buy a whole fuser assembly or just that gear.

Problems printing to Brother MFC 8660DN printer


Pull the paper tray, likley a small black lever to the left of the roller called the edge actuator is dislodged and hanging down. When in position the actuator should easily push up and appear flat next to the roller.

How to print adhisive labels using mfc 7340


Buy laser-specific adhesive labels. Those that say "Laser printer compatible". If you have an inkjet printer, print the labels with it, with the laser is more risky because of the temperature the paper needs to get in the printing process. If one label gets out of the support paper or the paper gets sticky inside the printer, it will cause a real mess.
Try inkjet first, or buy high-quality labels and print one full sheet at a time, not label by label.
