If a brother printer wont turn on its usally a problem of the main pcb! Due to power or lighting strikes the microdevices might be shortcuted. Its cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace the board!

My Brother HL-2070N printer won't print Web page

In January 2011 Brother update its drivers for your printer due to a compatibility problem. You haven't advised what operating system you're using but you apparently need to update your drivers.

If you are running Windows 7, you will have to update the drivers either from Microsoft Update or Brother. Click on this link for Brother.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print

First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

I have a brother HL-2070N and all four lights are blinking.

Yes pressing the go button gives the actual error, the toner light being on when you press go tells me that there's a fuser error. Either the heater lamp is burned out, or one of the overtemp sensors has been tripped, or the power supply is not turning on the fuser. I would replace the fuser first if you have no way of testing the parts in the fuser. You can find a fuser at

All four lights flash continually on Brother 2070n printer

If there is an error that cannot be cleared by the user, the printer will show that a service call is needed by
lighting up all the LEDs as below.
c5ae79f.jpg If you see the service call indication, turn off the power switch, wait a few seconds, and then turn it
back on and try to print again.
If you cannot clear the error and see the same service call indication after turning the printer back on, call
your dealer or a Brother authorized service representative.

How do I remove paper from paper jam?

To remove paper pull the paper with both hands being careful not to tear the paper . If you're unable to pull it you may need to manually rotate the gears that feed the paper through the printer
Now reset the printer by pressing the power button in on state to turn it off and restart
again thats all just take care that you remove the tray carefully

Thanks and Regards
