Hi there
HAve you seen a small coil spring with 2 lugs come out of the machine? If you look inside the printer cavity you should see one of these springs either side of the internal black frame work.aboutThese should be about 1 1/2" into the machine just close to a clear lens on either side. If one of these is missng the drum/cartridge unit is not properly aligned and will cause jamming as you have described.

Failing that you have either a sensor problem or a faulty drum unit.

Please let me know and I'll try yo help further.

Cheers

You probably need to clean the paper pickup roller above the paper tray. A clean cloth dipped in diluted kitchen detergent and a couple of drops of alcohol, will clean the rubber rollers. Stroke the cleaning cloth firmly from side to side all the way around all the rollers. Also clean the paper separation shoe (rubber pad) at the front of the paper tray. The last thing is to make sure your paper is dry. Damp paper sticks together

Hi Patricia,

Try to do a factory reset on the server.

Whilst the printer is turned off, press and hold the GO button as you plug the printer on to the socket. Notice that all lights on the printer will turn on as well. Continue pressing the go button until the light for the toner goes up and once its up, release the button. Next, hold down the Go button again until the "Yellow Status" light turns on once on, release the Go button. Wait for the printer to initialize and see if the error went away.

Hope this helps.

Printer wont print, paper light comes on, there is paper in tray


Reset the printer with the following method that I searched on the Brother solutions website - took an hour of searching...
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
