Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

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.If the problem still exists, you may try this 2nd option.
> the front door. There is something wrong with the front door, or the mechanisms that signal that it is closed. Closing the front door (the one that you open to pull out the toner and drum) all the way to where it snaps into place then the paper light flashes red. However closing the front door to the point where the "ready" light comes on (don't snap the door into place, just close it and let it rest in place without snapping it closed) and the printer prints fine, pulls paper from the tray and prints like it should.
So give it a try, don't snap the front door all the way closed to where it snaps closed, just close the door to where it's resting closed to where the ready light comes on and see if this helps you.
