Re: Paper JAm

There are three places to clear the jam: 1. Paper tray (remove it and feel inside, clear paper. 2.Open the front (above the manual feed slot) inside is the drum - remove that and the toner cartridge, if necessary. 3. On the back - open the rear chute. You should be able to remove the paper in one of those areas. See the Brother web site for complete pictures ans instructions.

How to remove a paper jam brother printer

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.

Blinking lights

This generally indicates a paper jam. I had this happen just yesterday, and SWORE there was no jam. And of course my wife looks at it for 2 minutes and finds the paper jam. So be sure to give a serious lookover 2 or 3 times, and get a fresh pair of eyes on it if you still cant locate it.

Hi here is a link to the brother site with a breakdown of the led status lights.

There are quite a few reasons as to why the paper light is coming on.

the obvious ones are a paper jam, low paper or no paper or its expecting paper to be put into the manual feed on the front of the printer.

but there are a few less than obvious reasons as well according to brothers site.

hope this helps.

Brother HL-2030 paper jam

1. Face the back of the printer. You may have to disconnect the cables. Just note their position for later reconnection. Open the rear cover.
2. Lower the forkish cover that is further in the back of the printer. It has a sticker on its left side.
3. There is a "finger" in the middle of the forkish cover that may not be in position. Note that there is on the mid-right side of it a tab, that has to be positioned to go down into the hole.
4. Close both covers and reconnect the wires if necessary.
5. It should now be working BS"D!!!
