Open the paper cassete and check if you have load paper in it.The second thing you can do is to open your printer front cover, remove the drum unit and check for paper jam inside the printer.

I have a brother printer HL2040 lazer printer and the paper button keeps on flashing red. There is no paper jam any where and there is paper in the paper tray. What can I do?


check that the front and back cover are completely closed.
check for a paper jam in the back as well.

if you still dont see anything, you probably have a small piece of paper jammed in the sensor area somewhere in the printer,

Kyocera fS-920KX. Not printing


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

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.

Flashing red light - no paper jam


I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

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)

Paper jam


Any paper jam has to be cleared first but after it is clear, re-insert the paper tray, make sure all doors are closed then hold down the
"GO" button until only solid green shows.
