You might have a bad sensor or a broken paper lift tray. Check and make sure that your tray has all its levers in place

Make sure the paper source is set up in default and not manual mode. This was happening to me and come to find out it was waiting for me to manually feed the paper in the front. Hope this helps.

I have a Brother HL-2040. The paper light is on, there is plenty of paper, not overfilled, no paper jams, and it still will not print.


That printer is kind of picky, make sure the paper cassette is all the way in, and also remove the toner and drum and look underneath. Sometimes paper scraps stick under the rollers and guides on the bottom.

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)

Brother HL-2040 All LEDs stay lit and the printer no longer works


Turn it on and when all the LEDs light up, THEN press the Go button. One or more LEDs will stay lit and the others will be off. Look in the user manual (you can find it online at the Brothers site if you don't have one). There is a chart in the Troubleshooting section that will tell you what problem your particluar combination of "lit" buttons indicates. It may suggest fixes, or depending on the problem, tell you to see a repair person.
