Question about Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer
I've read several posts on the "red flashing error light" on the Brother HL-2170W. I have mine hooked to a mac - but I'm sure the pc is the same way. One other previous post said look for a paper jam. Well, there are only a few places to look...and I found no paper jam UNTIL I removed the toner cartridge and looked UNDER the cartridge and VOILA, there was a paper jammed underneath. I removed it and I'm back in business. Normally paper jams when it is almost out of the printer and you can locate it by opening the back of the printer. Well, this one was "sneaky" and hid completely underneath the toner cartridge.
Hope this helps someone else...

HI there it sound like you have either jammed the paper exit sensor up or broken the arm of it
youcan find the sensor by the rollers that the paper exits the printer through there should be a small platic arm haning down accross where the paper comes out to tell the printer that the paper has come out if it is jammed in the up position it will make the printer think there is still a peice of paper in the hot fuser unit and wont let the printer start up .
So carfully have a look at the fuser exit locat the arm and free it so it swings down freely and the problem should be solved when the printer is restarted
