brother HL-1240 paper feeddOk, after more testing and searching, I've determined that the solenoid is not working correctly. The timing is off or something because it clicks back to non paper feed mode to quickly. I just had a test where the paper didn't even get into the drum area, let alone out of the paper tray.
An archived forum post tells about the solenoid release spring. Is this spring directly above the solenoid, or the one connected to the solenoid?

it sounds like something is rubbing against paper. But I can't identify where that is.
