Please follow the instructions given below:

1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. We will replace the printer, only if it is under warranty.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.

SOURCE: Paper light says on.. wont reset after jam is cleared

We have a few of the HL-2070N's and I have seen this issue on a few of them. Usually it indicates one of several instances that can be found on Brothers website in the FAQ's about what does the LED indicate area.

The main solution I have found is that depending on where the paper jammed it has affected the drum/toner cartridge assembly somehow or another.

  • I recommend taking the Toner Cartridge out of the drum unit
  • clean the corona wire by moving the blue tab at the front of the drum unit back and forth several times
  • I have even used can air here to get it even better all around the drum unit not just at the corona wire area
  • After make sure all is clean put all back together
This has cleared up most all of my paper jam LED issues and allowed for further printing.

Printer is not print properly & paper jam problem. how repair the printer &how to troubleshoot the printer &how check out ,which part have problem.


When you removed the jammed paper, did the paper come out inone piece, if not did all the pieces that were removed make up the entire sheetof paper?
Otherwise there may be still a small piece/s of paper still in the printer,which is causing this error message.When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper.The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

The orange light keeps flashing and it says there is a paper jam but I cleared the paper jam but the orange flashing light will not go off.


1. there is a sensor at the end of the printer which shows paper jam recovery. the sensor of your printer may be jammed. clear the jam and it will work. 2. if not, there may be a small piece of paper near the sensor of your printer. clear it.

MFC640 Printer had a paper jam I took the paper out from the back put the cover back on its still flashing paper jam. what should I do?


TRY OPENING AND INSPECTING ALL AREAS WHERE THE PAPER GOES. USE A TORCH OR BRIGHT LIGHT TO CHECK IF THERE ANY BITS OF PAPER. ALSO CHECK IF ANY BITS MISSING FROM THE JAMBED SHEET OF PAPER. LOOK FOR A SMALL PIECE OF PAPER. AROUND THE ROLLERS OR PAPER MOVEMENT AREA. .ALSO IF PRINT HEAD IS ON LEFT SIDE GENTLY MOVE IT TO THE CENTRE WITHOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING, AND CHECK FOR ANY PAPER BITS BEHIND THE PRINT HEAD..
TO DO THIS YOU MUST REMOVE THE PAPER JAM COVER AT REAR OF MACHINE, LIFT UP THE WHOLE SCANNER COVER AND INSPECT. WHEN COMPLETE REPLACE THE REAR COVER AND CLOSE THE MACHINE. THEN RETRY.
HOPE THIS HELPS BARRY UBON.

My 1900 printer power is on and flashing slowly and the paper/garbage light is on and not flashing.


Hello.

You most likely have a paper jam or a paper feeding problem. Paper may have jammed in the sheet feeder, manual feed slot, or roll paper slot.

Sheet Feeder or Manual Feed Slot: Press the
paper button to eject any jammed sheets, then open
the printer cover and remove any paper jammed inside.
Press the paper button again to clear the error.

Hope this helps.

Printer starts to grab paper then paper jambs.


Hi, Follow these steps:- 1.Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 2.Turn off the printer. 3.Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 4.Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 5.If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 6.If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly.The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 7.If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. 8.Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 9.If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
