Brother 2040 paper light .. continuous red

Hi.. I think I have a paper jam.. but cant get at it.
Ie . I gently pulled a stuck piece out and only 3/4 of it came out.
I cant see any fragments ect.

have opened up the back and taken out the paper tray

any diagrams as to what I can do now??

Ditto--same problem. But I've got an additional problem in that its the second printed paper that jams. The first printed paper has correct printing on it but the paper comes out all folded up in little horizontal folds.

If you removed a piece. But more remains it must also be removed. Look closely along the paper path for something that will release to provide access to the path.

Great solution here,i was having the exact same problem to the point where i was going to send it back.When you select your paper under general setup on your printer,glossy,plain,inkjet.you must also select the same,glossy,plain,inkjet under printing preferences when you select what printer your going to use.

SOURCE: Brother 2040 Paper Light Stays on and won't print

I had the same problem. No jammed paper etc but while I was checking for one I noticed that the paper draw was not flush with the back of the printer and I was able to push the draw out from the back of the printer (don't think you should be able to do that!) Anyway, pushed it back into position, small click (into place???) and the paper draw could not be pushed forward again. Gave it a go and now the light is off at last and the printer is printing again.

SOURCE: Re: paper jam in brother laser printer hl 2040 : paper red ligh continue to flash

Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

Paper jam. Sheet printed but didn't pass through the rollers


Hi,
  • Remove the paper tray completely by pulling it out towards you.
  • Now pull the jammed/stuck paper out gently.
  • If you cannot remove the paper by the above procedures,open the printers front cover to access the cartridges assembly.
  • Pull the cartridges assembly gently and slowly.This will come out together with the jammed paper.
  • If jam not cleared,open the back cover and pull the tab outwards to access the fuser unit.Remove the stuck papers here.

  • Hope this helps.Thanks!

Paper red light is blinking and it won't print but there's paper in the printer. I had to pull out 2 pieces of stuck paper earlier.


You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.

Check for a piece of paper caught in the fuser section. Sometimes a small piece will wedge itself in. Vacuum out any residual toner that may be in the paper path.

One of two things.
1. When the jam occured there may have been a small piece of paper torn off on a sensor.
2. And I think this is more likley. One of the sensor actuators has fallen off or is stuck causing the sensor to think there is still paper in the machine.
Take your time and examine the paper path carefully.
The actuators are black plastic pieces about an inch long hanging down into the paper path.
