Its probably 1 of 2 things. either your drum is worn out or your fuser. Most like its the drum. Take your drum out and look at it and see if it looks clean. if it doesnt, it probably is the drum.

another thing you might try, is to make a test print before the paper hits the fuser area and open up the door, this will cause a paper jam, but you can see if you are getting the speckled print before it hits the fuser.

thanks adi

Paper jam. Sheet printed but didn't pass through the rollers


Hi,
  • Remove the paper tray completely by pulling it out towards you.
  • Now pull the jammed/stuck paper out gently.
  • If you cannot remove the paper by the above procedures,open the printers front cover to access the cartridges assembly.
  • Pull the cartridges assembly gently and slowly.This will come out together with the jammed paper.
  • If jam not cleared,open the back cover and pull the tab outwards to access the fuser unit.Remove the stuck papers here.

  • Hope this helps.Thanks!

Brand: Brother Model: HL-2040 Problem: cannot print, paper error, red light blink, did not feed paper. What should i do? thanks.


pull tray out load a couple sheets look underneath and see if paper is lifted up when closing paper drawer. If the paper is not raised to the up position you have broken the tray lift mechanism and it is not worth fixing. You can jam an eraser underneath the tray to manually raise the tray to do a dodgy fix.

How to stop red blinking "paper"? couldn't stop


There is probably a paper jam since you shut it off as it was printing. Turn off the printer. Remove the tray and look inside. Remove any sheets of paper you see. Open the back of the printer (the pass-thru door) and remove any paper you see. Turn on the printer. If that fails, check the blink status against the manual's troubleshooting guide to locate a different solution.

P.s. you may want to get a cleaner sheet and run it thought the rolls.

You just lightly pull on the sheet of paper from both corners. There is no release valve.
