Ready and alarm lights keep blinking. will not print


Service manual: ready and alarm blinking :
Paper Jam
Clear the paper jam and press the panel button if the printer
does not automatically resume printing.
Misfeed:
Re-install the paper and press the panel button.

Clear the jammed paper inside the printer. Press the panel button
if the printer does not automatically resume printing.

check the sensors:
1) Turn off the printer power switch, open the front cover, and remove the drum unit.
2) Turn on the printer while pressing the control panel button. The Drum LED comes ON.
3) Lightly press the panel button again.
Alarm LED is ON = Front registration sensor is turned ON.
4) Press and release the panel button again.
Drum LED is ON = Paper eject sensor is turned ON.

If sensors are On, paper is being detected, Off- no paper

Thanks, Joe

Brother HL 1250 Laser Printer Alarm light blinks at same time as ready light and printer does not print - why?


I have saeen this happen and there is usually a paper jam somewhere in the machine. Remember, it doesn't take much of a piece of paper to jam. Use a flashlight and look inside your printer closely. Also check your toner supply level.

The alarm button keeps blinking. How do I get it to stop?


Well I'm sure that the alarm button is blinking for a reason. I beleive that printer is a laser so unless you dont have paper in it :)
You most likely are low on toner or need to change the drum.

I replaced the toner cartridge, but I am getting a blinking green ready light with a blinking red alarm light. will not print.


This is a paper jam error. Try reloading the paer if you can not find any paper stuck inside the printer. Then press the start button.

HL-1240, the alarm light is on, what would be the reasons?


the first alarm light (at the very top) indicate the toner life ends the second light(middle) indicate the drum life ends and the third is for paper jam or print error

Brother HL-1440 LASER PRINTER requires ''Service Call A''.


currently, the error you have is not a service errorl, ready and alarm blink means that you have either a paper jam, no paper, or a paper misfeed.

do you get this error only when you try to print?
according to the service manual the lights can not alternate in blinking.
