Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer

Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!

All of a sudden my printer will not take paper from the paper tray underneath the printer. Whenever I try to print something it makes this horrible clicking noise and sounds like it is going to break. I did notice that the paper tray is not moving itself up so that the paper can be fed through. But it does not seem like that is the problem. Because when I fed a piece of paper through the individual feeder just above the tray it went through but it was still making that horrible clicking noise. Can somebody please help me with this problem?

Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!

Why does my Samsung ML-3712ND printer say "paper empty in MP tray" when it is not empty?


The MP tray is the fold down 50 sheet tray that is built in to the front door of the Samsung ML-3712. It is usually used for thick papers, letterheads and unusual sized paper.
Sometimes people mistake the 250 sheet cassette tray that slides underneath the printer for the MP tray.
If you want to print on plain paper in your cassette tray and you keep getting this message.
1. cancel all print jobs
2. try printing a new document ( you can make a new word document with just one line)

if that works
Usually one of the settings in the print job you are printing will be out of specification ( could be too small margins) and the printer will be trying to feed from the MP tray

If the new print job doesn't work, the problem is likely in your default printer settings/properties

I've searched and can't find anyone else with this problem either, I know it isn't an instant solution but your best bet would be contacting their customer support.

Printer makes a horrible sound when trying to print also the blue button on the right side making a loud clicking noise. the paper won't feed.8860 dn


I have had the exact same problem. The problem is in the tray. It won't raise the paper properly despite how much paper you have in it. Make sure that all of the springs are there, and that the plastic sensors are correct.

I've found it useful to just buy another tray. You can find it as low as $30-35.

It's a very typical mechanical problem, but most likely resolved by changing the tray.

Loud clicking/clacking when paper feeds


Your rollers may be worn and when they are trying to pick up the paper they are not able to . Buy taking your printer to an authorized technician for a maintenance cleaning this should resolve your issue.

Paper output tray


check for paper jams, try turning completely off, and unplug, replug, turn back on (to reset itself). No luck, try to see uninstalling and reinstalling will correct it.

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.
