I had a similar problem, more of a snapping sound than clicking, but this is what worked for me - pull the paper tray out and "loosen" the rear paper limiter by unlocking it, move it back about 1/8-1/4" and then re-lock it

The same thing is happening to me. I suspected it was the toner cartridge, but it's not. Just replaced it and still same problem. Is it the drum?

How do I replace PF kit1 Brother MFC-8460n


The paper feed kit is the pick up rollers and the transfer rollers. You can thake those out clean them and replace them, but unless you are actually having paper feed issues usually just clean the paper tray feed rollers with alcohol and reset the paper feed kit counter if needed.

Bottom tray won't feed paper just makes a clicking noise 3-4 times like a gear slipping


adjust the left, right and rear paper guides so that the paper isn't fitting into the tray so tight. The clicking sound you hear is the gear trying to raise the paper to be fed, but it can't do it's job because the paper is in so tight. On mine, the culprit was the rear guide so I let it out just 1/4" or so-just enough to give the paper a little more room to move-problem solved-for me at least!!

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.

Clicking noise with MFC-8640D another case


Usually it's because the paper is too tight in the feed tray. The paper length tab on the end away from the feed roller is too tight. If you cant rotate the gear on the paper tray and lift the paper, it's too tight for the machine to lift.

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.

For whatever reason the paper tray will not feed into the printer. It keeps telling me that there is either no paper or there is a paper jam. You can hear it trying to catch as it makes a continuous...


If you can take it back. This indicates that there is a mechanical problem with the paper feed hardware. Most often there is a plastic or metal wire that snaps down to the paper tray and pushes the paper into the feed. This isn't happening right and it tries for a set number of times(hence the clicking noise) then the software assumes there is no paper. Hope this helps. You can take out the tray and look up into the back of the tray slot with a flashlight and see if something is blocking it. Hope this helps.

pull cassette out and move the rear paper stopper away from rear of paper. leave about 1/8" gap. that should probably do it.

Mfc 8460n paper jam


Check to see if this happens when you use the drop down manual feed tray. If your printer works fine using the manual feed tray the problem is with your paper tray. Check to make sure it is set to letter size. I've found that sometimes the 'teeth' holding the paper stop on the paper tray wear out and when the printer goes to pick up paper, it pushes the paper stop out of position causing the printer to think it's using a different, much longer size paper thus preventing it from feeding all the way through. You'll probably need a new paper tray if this is the case.
