    My red paper light keeps flashing. I have tried everything, cinluding the reset by holding down the go button. I could hold the GO button till the end of time but the four lights do not come on.

    The only online solutions I could find recommended downloading a pc program (freeware). I have the red light forever-on problem and no printing but I happen to have a MACBOOK.

    Does anybody out there have a solution that could possibly help my MAC print out?
    To repeat: The Brother printer will not quit beaming out a red light and refuses to print.

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that helps.

Try to reset the trouble lights.
Open the door again
Hold the GO button until all 4 lights are lit up
Release the GO button
Close the door
Printer will self test and should extinguish all the trouble lights.

Hi,

One of the main reasons for printing issue is the presence of corrupted or updated drivers in the system. For proper working of Brother printer, users are recommended to update the printer driver software. The outdated drivers may popup error messages and may result in serious malfunctioning of the printers. Users may need to ensure that they choose the correct and corruption free drivers for the printers from the genuine websites.

Why does my 2040 Paper light (Red) keep flashing even though the paper tray is full and there is no paper jam?


Hello,

There are several possibilities with too many to type here so, here is a link to the Brother troubleshooting page that gives several causes for the flashing red light. When you get to the page, scroll down until you see the "lashing "paper" light.

When I turn on the printer the light paper flashes


The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.
It will help you to solve the problem.

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)

Sounds to me like the word doc's page size is not set to the same as your printers tray.

In word, file , page set up. page size/paper size is set to "letter" in US I think is standard, it's A4 in Oz

On printer driver check page size setting too

Contral panel, printers and faxs, RIgHT click on brother printer icon, properties, printing preferences, page size
