Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer prints crooked (8.5 x 11 from paper tray)

Our Brother HL-2070N jammed on us just once because it was turned off in an effort to stop an erroneous long print job that was still in its que.  Ever since the jam was cleared, it prints crooked on standard paper out of the paper tray.  Looking at a documents printed after the incident, there is a noticeable slant from left to right across the document that slants downward 1/4".  We have tried removing the toner cartridge a few times hoping that this would resolve the issue, but we have had no success thus far.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Check that the paper guides on paper cassette are hard up against paper edges

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.

Paper jammed in my 2070N printer & I don't know how to remove it

That machine doesn't have a release lever, you need to pull the paper out, as straight as possible trying not to tear it. There probably is a problem with your fuser, and it will need to be replaced. Even getting the paper out, it will probably jam again on the next print.

Extra paper being fed after print job

Try a test page from the control panel, if this works properly you probably have an issue with the software of the printer. Reload the printer as if it was a brand new machine.

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

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.

Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

Brother HL-2070N won't feed paper from tray

I had the same problem with 2 of the 2070N printers. Solution was that the paper tray was setting to tight against the paper pushing it tight up to the front of the tray. Back the rear support up so there is maybe 1/16 inch clearance between the paper and the end of the tray. No more feed problems.
