Paper red light blinking. paper is full. What could be wrong? Will not print


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Status light indicates a paper problem. Paper try is full and no sign of paper stuck inside the printer.


Could be a few things:
Try poking a small screwdriver in the bottom of the tray to manually lift the paper. If that works, you probably have a gear problem - see the post titled, "Status light is red and paper light blinking"

If that doesn't work, put some paper in the MP tray and test print (hit GO button 3x). If that works, you have a problem with the paper pickup and might require some parts (hard to find). Inside the drive unit (frame L) is a little circuit board (relay front PCB). As you try to print, check voltage on pins 1-2, it should cycle to activate a solenoid. If you get a voltage cycle, your solenoid is probably bad - if not, your relay front PCB is probably bad.

Status light is red and paper light blinking


Alex,

To isolate the problem, please try the steps below:

Remove and re-insert the paper tray and then click Go.

Take the drum unit out of the machine and put it back in.

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!

Red "Paper" light blinking Brother HL-2040


I agree with another su=olution. The paper light was blinking on and off sugesting a paper jam. Paper had jammed in the back roller and displaced the small lever out of its slot.
Open rear cover, open paper guide by pulling it downwards so you can see the rollers, In the middle of the guide you will see a black lever about 25mm long to the right of this you will see a small slot. The guide will have been pushed to the left of this slot and the Plastic cam will be bowing toward the front of the printer (about 3mm). You need to pull the 25mm lever towards the rear of the printer and then slide the plastic cam to the right so the blade part of the cam slides into its correct slot. The blade is about half a mm thick and the slot is the same and is about 60mm to the right of the lever Use a torch to see it easier. This is a 2 minute job once you see what is wrong.
Hope we have helped someone out there fix a printer

Help please. can't print: paper light flashing even though there is paper in printer


To fix the NON EXISTANT paper jam:

Status light is on, paper light is on - you can hear the paper feed trying to "grab" the paper, but it can't,  and status light goes Red.

Take out paper tray

Reset the blue paper holders, move them tight against the paper so the paper is snug against all blue barriers. Cause: Somehow the blue paper holders got dislodged and the paper is not snug so the feeder is trying to grab paper that  is slightly out of reach.
