    Fourth LED to the right blinks steadily, indicating NO PAPER IN TRAY. I have plenty of paper and even us the singel sheet manual feed and get the same thing. LED blinks constantly no matter if I have paper in or out.

Check the back side of the printer to make shure no paper jam, if its clear take the paper tray out unplug your machine for about Two minutes, reinstall the paper tray make sure pick up roller is free located at the front of the printer that feeds the paper, plug your machine see if it works,
If not unplug your machine again for two minutes
hold down Key ( 3 ) & ( # ) plug in your machine while you are holding both keys tell reset, It might take sometimes up to 4 or 5 minutes.
Good Luck.

Brand: Brother Model: HL-2040 Problem: cannot print, paper error, red light blink, did not feed paper. What should i do? thanks.


pull tray out load a couple sheets look underneath and see if paper is lifted up when closing paper drawer. If the paper is not raised to the up position you have broken the tray lift mechanism and it is not worth fixing. You can jam an eraser underneath the tray to manually raise the tray to do a dodgy fix.

Paper light keeps blinking, paper full, won't print


Paper light blinking could mean a few 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. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. 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.

PAPER LIGHT BLINKS RED


Lots of potentials here.
The corona wire may have become dirty in the jam. That will cause it. Both the front and back door have to be shut. See to it that their respective switches are activated when they are shut. Read your owners manual. It is full of suggestions for this issue.

Will not pick up paper from tray. Red light blinks indicating a paper jam. Prints fine if single sheet thru bypass slot.


Not picking up paper indicates either a worn nip roller (rubber on feed spindle) or you have a broken gear in the feed mechanism.
