Paper jam on Brother HL-1270N

Paper has jammed in the roller(s) at thr rear of the printer (HL-1270 Brother).

From the rear of the printer, I can see the paper that is causing the jam - but how do I get at it?

Have tried removing top of printer - no access.
Have removed metal base - no access.

Any more ideas.

Our Brother printer HL-2142 has a paper jam and we cannot locate our manual. Can you help?


hi there!

for paper jam, dont simply pull the paper out of the printer, this will damage the feed mechanism of the printer. but if already did, just open up the cartridge door of the printer (also check on the duplexer at back if it has), check for paper tear, clean rollers if you can too. this is the manual for your printer aswell since you lost your copy:

How could i fix paper jam on Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer?


One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

Paper red light is blinking and it won't print but there's paper in the printer. I had to pull out 2 pieces of stuck paper earlier.


You may encounter a paper jam while working with your Brother printer. You need to be cautious while feeding the paper to your printer. Paper jams are often obvious, but you might come across a situation when you do not get any indication that the paper has jammed up the printer. In such cases, you need to open your printer and visually inspect it to search for the jammed paper. If the rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the printouts, then there is a need to clean them. Using chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers might prove hazardous to your printer.

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)
