Brother laser black and white printer HL-2040

1. I cannot find my printer manual.
2. I cannot download a manual because the printer red light / "paper jam" is on..therefore printer won't work.
3. I already removed the jammed paper. I don't see any more jammed paper. But the red light won't go out.
Is it possible that I forced the little blue lever at the front inside left of the machine and now it won't click back into place?
4. I will be in the U.S.A. from Thursday morning Sept. 11th until the following Wednesday, Sept. 17. So could you possibly reply via e-mail to my son's computer in the U.S.A. It is : jasonoffenhartz@yahoo.com

Thank you VERY MUCH!
Yours truly,

Do not try to depress the green lever, since you need to remove the cartridge AND its base altogether. Just grab the front middle part of the assembly, pull it out slowly and steadily. You may need to apply extra force in doing so as it does take some effort to disengage the cartridge assemly from its seated position.
After the cartridge is removed, you may find some jamed paper inside. simply remove it and the printer should work again.
You may email me at stevenjoy@gmail.com should you have further questions.

Brand: Brother Model: HL-2040 Problem: cannot print, paper error, red light blink, did not feed paper. What should i do? thanks.


pull tray out load a couple sheets look underneath and see if paper is lifted up when closing paper drawer. If the paper is not raised to the up position you have broken the tray lift mechanism and it is not worth fixing. You can jam an eraser underneath the tray to manually raise the tray to do a dodgy fix.

Can the Brothers HL 2040 handle printing 65lb


It probably can but only from the front slot, the paper tray has to bend the paper around the roller in the front when feeding.

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)
