I replaced my black cartridge and now my ink/paper light remains lit and when i press it, after a few noises, the green power light begins to blink. i have recently replaced the color cartridge as well.


It is important for you to post the make of your printer. Anyway, it sounds like your new cartridge is faulty, which is not unusual. First of all, turn your machine off, unplug it, wait a minute, then plug it in and turn it on. If the problem is still there, try another new cartridge. If the problem goes away, get a refund for the one you just replaced.

I always have paper jamed after i pull the paper


Hello there You can try this it good little trick.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error Light on Brother HL-2170W


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.

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!
