Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
There is no paper jammed in the printer, but the paper fed light keeps blinking. Any suggestions
Pull out the drum. There is a blue button on it - if you pull it out and look straight down at it, it should be on the right hand side towards the printer. Slide the blue button back and forth, left to right, 20 times or so. Make sure to position it back to the right side all the way when done and put it back in. It should fix it. It is some kind of wire that is dirty with paper dust, etc. Brother told me to do that very thing when mine was having the same problem. Now, if that doesn't work, I also use the dust remover canned air and spray inside where the drum fits.
Hope it helps.

In Brother's own information it states to -never- use the air-spray in their machines..that it can damage if used on the wrong spots, or can cause grit/dust to scratch parts, ie-drum, or push foreign materials into worse places.. **with caution**

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken .Hope this will help or else you mother board has errrors.
