Printer will not print

Hello,
I tried to manipulate (touched) the brown roller of a Brother HL-2140 printer to remove a paper jam and now it no longer wants to move paper so it can print. I went to your sight and found out how to correctly remove the paper jam and that I should not have touched the brown roller. Is there any solution or should I buy a new printer? Thank you. Tim

No need to go for the new printer. just get ur printer serviced from a good technician to clear off the jamming problem and it wont effect the printer so much to spoil the printer completely if u touch the roller.its a minor problem and needs some servicing and realignment to be done.

How to load evelopes HL 2140


Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.


Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

How could i fix paper jam on Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer?


One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

How can I check the count of pages printed in my brother hl-2140 printer ?


Turn the printer off then on, wait a few secondes then press the GO button 3 times quickly.

The printer settings will print. It will show you how many pages have been printed as well as number of paper jams and errors etc.

Hl-2140 noises


For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen

Some paper got jammed, so I took it out. Now the


hi, Hello... I would like to try my hand at your problem (it sounds familiar and might be solvable). In a case like this, one has to treat a persistent paper jam assiduously: 1. Turn off the printer, and unplug it. Open up the printer completely, by all available hatches etc (-being that it's a laser printer, mind that too much exposure to bright light will spoil the bluish-reddish developer drum, so don't let light onto it more than a minute or so... or less preferably.) 2. Examine the path the paper takes, as it is printed, from the beginning (the paper tray, or sheet feeder, or manual feeder) to the end (the output tray), and all points in between. 3. Wherever there are bits of paper, or fluff, or anything like that, get it out of there! (-and of course, don't touch the drum - but you know that aleady.) 4. If there are any mechanical sensor switches, make sure they are not bent out of position or otherwise 'stuck on'... and if there are any optical sensors you can see, be extra sure there is nothing sticking in them (within the squared-off-U-shape most of them look like that), that would activate them. 5. Can't see anything? Reset your printer, as follows: Turn the printer OFF. (Or if it won't turn off, just) Unplug the printer from the wall or power strip. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. Plug it back in. Turn it on if it didn't turn itself on. Wait for it to initialize. Try printing again.
