Re: when trying to print from internet printer starts and...
Try to reset your system one of two ways. With the printer plugged into your computer unplug from the wall for 30 seconds then plug back in. If that doesnt work then try a hard reset by pressing and holding the Cancel and Left arrow button. Hold down for 30 seconds then plug the system back in and do a test print then tr and print off the internet. If that doesnt work then unistall the Printer software and reinstall the software.

For Brother Laser Machines. Start by pulling the paper tray out a little. This allows the page that is currently feeding through the system the chance to get through without jamming causing a whole slew of other problems.
Once the printer has stopped trying to feed the pages through coming up with an error saying paper out then you can look at deleting all the print jobs in the print queue on your computer. All but the one currently being printed should disappear when you delete them. The one that is left will be errored.
Then turn your printer off for 30 seconds closing the paper tray and try to delete that last job from the queue.
If it will not go then turn your printer back on and let the last couple of pages print out. these are pages that are stuck in the system. If the print job did disappear then just turn on your printer as normal and it should be clear of any jammed printing and you don't end up with Paper Jams in the printer to clear.
Try the feed tires in the tray first. More than likely the paper is not being picked up and causing jam message. The separation roller also has a hub on it to prevent a second sheet from feeding. Sometimes these start to lock up ,a little oil on the hub sometimes relieves some of the tension.
Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.
could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the
drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. 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
Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:
1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Have you ever tried printing sticky labels in the thing? You have to be careful with those because sometimes a piece will come off and stick in the corner of your printer. If you don't have long surgical tweezers to pull it out, you could be looking at an expensive repair. Also check your manual. There are two places the paper can jam in. You might have checked only one. I have a different Canon model but on mine I also have to make sure the correct light is on. Is the light for feeding from the back on, or the light from feeding on the front? If you have the same light, press it again to change the place where it will feed from.
Make sure your paper isn't curled or that you're using paper that's too thick also.
Can't answer more because I don't know what program you are using to try to print.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock
(Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button,
applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through
the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear
the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a
try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly
This is definitely a mechanical problem. You might want to at least partially take the printer appart and inspect it very thoroughly if you haven't done so yet. Did you have any paper jams before? Sometimes when you remove a paper jam the sheet rips and you end up with some shreds of paper lodged in the printer mechanism causing more jams. Another possibility might be cracked or bent paper guides, or simply dirty rollers (these you can clean with alcohol).
