Sounds like the fuser is causing the jam. Anything from a dislocated pic finger to other paper debry can be causing these types of jams.
If you open the back door, will the page exit the printer fine of does it still jam?
If it still jams the fuser is definatly the problem. If it dosen't, then it might be the delivery assembly causing the jam.
You might be able to see where the jam is happening if you print something and watch it though the back to see where the paper catches and jams.

When I try to print anything the paper in my Brother HL-2040 gets stuck and doesn't properly feed through the printer. The paper light flashes and I have to open the paper tray, pull the paper down, and...


Sounds like there is a piece of paper stuck somewhere. In the back of the printer is a rear door, fold that down and check everywhere. Get a vacuum and first vacuum, then blow everything. Sometime dust can get in the way if it builds up. Make sure your paper is dry (hasn't gotten wet with humidity), and lays flat. Maybe try feeding some heavy weight paper with the manual feed in from to help push any jams out of the way. I've done all of the above at one time or another to help clear out my printer.....hope this helps

How do I pull out the toner cartrige of a HL 2040


Front panel of printer (manual paper feed is in the middle of this panel) has tabs on the right & left and will fold out and down. The toner/drum is right inside. there's an opening in the middle to grab it and pull straight out. The toner will separate from the drum unit by holding a small purple/blue tab on the left side down, and then lift up and out. Reverse this when putting everything back. remember to shake the toner right-left to loosen the toner before putting back in the unit. To reset the printer, and with the front door still open, hold the GO-Control button down until all lights are on, then let go, close up front door. Power off & back on and you should be set.

Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer Paper jam


Most likely something has broken in the loading gear. Never pull paper against the normal flow, of course, you know that now. Unless you can locate the broken part and replace it, I'm afraid there's not much you can do other than manually feed the paper.

The paper is jamed with it protruded out in front about a inch


I would try first unplugging the printer, then taking the paper tray out, the toner cartridge out, open the back cover and inside the back cover near the power cord is a blue lever. Try pushing this down as you see if you can remove the jammed paper.
