Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

Red paper light blinking

Just replaced Toner. Full set of paper in tray. No paper jam. Yet...red 'paper' light continues to blink. The printer seems to be spurting out black ink on the pages (that is, when it worked, the printer has ceased to work at all). My suspicion, based on research on this site, is that the drum needs to be cleaned or replaced. I cannot, however, find any information on HOW to remove the drum (truth be told, I am not sure where exactly the drum is). Please help.

Thank you.

To replace the drum, just pull out the toner cartridge from the front, the drum is the part DR-2025 that is connected to the cartridge. Push down the little purple lever and remove the cartridge from the drum.

IT IS JUST RED BLINKING AND DOES NOT PRINT


Red blinking could indicate out of paper or out of toner. Be sure to check which light is blinking; the one for lack of toner or paper.

Check whether the paper tray has any paper and if it has, is it properly closed? Check whether it has a paper jam also.

Check the toner cartridge and ascertain whether it has anything. Lastly open the top cover and close it again for the printer to re-initiate itself.

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.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.

Red and Green lights are together blinking continiously


I had this problem. The cancel button was stucked. Open the toner tray and slighly push the button side top-cover up. It released the cancel button for me (actually I was trying to open the top, but it worked). The cancel button was released and the blinking red-green stopped. Printer now working.
