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?

    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?

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn


We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
