Brother HL-2070N red "paper" light flashes after a paper jam

After pulling out a paper jam the "paper" light on my Brother HL-2070N began flashing. I opened all the accesses and found no more paper. I checked the toner and paper size and everything seems fine. I powered it down. Upon powering up it imediately goes to default and the light begins to flash again. Is there a sensor that I might have broken or maybe that got stuck? Any ideas?

    Paper light keeps flickering even after taking out cartridge, adding paper and removing stuck paper. Path seems clear but it won't allow me to print

    I turned off printer right after a page printed and now, when the printer is on again, the Paper button will not turn to green, and I cannot print.

Had a paper jam due to a ream of paper left lying on top of the machine. Opened all covers and removed 3 jammed sheets. they were all complete, no tears. Paper light would
not go out. Tried holding go button when powering up, then pressing it again. Machine seemed to go through its reboot
but light is still on. Removed and inspected toner cartridge and roller, all look good. There is a sensor lever on the gate inside the rear cover. It is in the centre, and it connects via a small plastic rod to a latch or something on the right, when viewing from the rear. This rod has a small quadrant halfway
along it that is supposed to be located in a slot in the clear plastic part of the gate. It was not in position, which was evidenced by the fact that the rod was curved, instead of being straight as it should be. With the assistance of a thin bladed kitchen knife I was able to properly relocate it and the printer
works as perfectly as it always has.

I pulled my hair out on this one. I was printing mailing labels using Word 2010's mail merge. Finally I got things going by printing to a virtual printer I had (FinePrint) and then to the printer. Any time I tried to print directly to the printer from Word I got the paper light. Go figure?

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.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
