Hi, Check the power connections.Disconnect the printer and the pc from power and then reconnect again. Check for paper jams in the paper paths and remove any stuck papers. You may also check cartridges status. Change any dry/damaged cartridges. Hope this helps.Thanks!

When I try to print anything the paper in my Brother HL-2040 gets stuck and doesn't properly feed through the printer. The paper light flashes and I have to open the paper tray, pull the paper down, and...

Sounds like there is a piece of paper stuck somewhere. In the back of the printer is a rear door, fold that down and check everywhere. Get a vacuum and first vacuum, then blow everything. Sometime dust can get in the way if it builds up. Make sure your paper is dry (hasn't gotten wet with humidity), and lays flat. Maybe try feeding some heavy weight paper with the manual feed in from to help push any jams out of the way. I've done all of the above at one time or another to help clear out my printer.....hope this helps

I just bought a new Dell with Windows 7. Installed the updated driver from brother. Printer worked OK. As a page was feeding back into the machine it got stuck. I removed the page. But since then the paper...

This could mean that the printer is expecting paper of a particular size (for duplex printing). Press the job cancel button and check that the paper size is set for the correct paper type (A4, Letter or Legal). That light will also blink if the back cover is open or the duplex tray is not installed.

Brother HL-2140 Error light is flashing

Try to unplug the power from the print, wait 1 minute then plug back in.

This may remove the error.

All the lights are flashing including the blue power button light. What does it mean. I tired holding the blue power button down but that did not work. Please help.

This indicates a Service Call Error. Turn printer OFF, wait a few
seconds and then the printer ON. If the alarm continues, perform a
factory reset:
1. Turn the printer OFF.

2. Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn ON the power switch while holding down the GO button.

4. Check the Toner/Drum/Paper LED#s are lit.

5. Release the GO button and check that all LED#s are off.

6. Press the GO button eight times.

7. The printer settings will be reset to factory default.

8. The printer will then initialize and return to Ready status.

If the problem continues and the printer has a one year limited exchange
warranty. If the printer is in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options.

If the printer is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing

I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Error after pulling out paper drawer during printing

The error button is probably flashing because there is paper in the printer that did not feed through. or just power off the printer and power back on and see if that helps

Re: paper jam in brother laser printer hl 2040 : paper red ligh continue to flash

Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

Out of paper light

I've been stuck with a flashing red paper light for a while. The printer could print from the manual tray and could also print test or diagnostic pages.
So I thought it might be driver related, and indeed it was.
There's a nasty setting in the printer properties that makes the printer go woo-hoo. So go to printer properties > tray settings. Check the "paper size" of "Tray 1". If it's set to "undefined", change it to your corresponding paper format. Click Update, Apply. Now print happily.
I still wonder why that setting magically changed. Hope this helps someone.
