Paper doesn't feed correctly. Brother 2040

Paper doesn't feed correctly. Paper doesn't move from tray to path correctly. I have to open the tray and reposition the top sheet. I then push the print button and it will print one page. I must do this for each page.

There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
also if rollers are seen to be very clean and proper as new.then it can be paper pulling gears at the side of the rollers.if the gears are worn out from 1 side it will pull the paper but not in a proper way.in this case also rollers needs to be replaced,becasuse roller are not available in spare they come attached to the rollers.but a local printer repair shop can provide the only spare rollers as thay have it from old junk printers.
thanks.

I Have an EPSON Stylus TX700W Printer , & am having problems getting it to feed paper. Have tried all the Paper Jam solving problems to no avail. Printer just keeps saying "The Paper Cassette is...


This can also be caused when the upper cassette tray (for small paper stock / photo paper) becomes detached from the lower tray. There is a gear attached to the lower paper tray which handles movement of the upper paper tray. Make sure that moving this gear causes the upper paper tray to move. If it doesn't, then you need to snap the upper paper try on a little better.

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.

Brother 2040 printer blinking paper light - I open all of the drawers, took out and put the cartridge back in, played with the paper wheels and it won't stop blinking!





Hello ,

This is due to your computer software selecting the manual feed instead of tray one usually because the software program decides that the paper size is not the standard letter size, such as envelopes, and has to go through the manual feed.

If you are having trouble finding the manual feed, it is found just above the paper tray, usually on the front panel of the printer.

If you are trying to print a letter sized document yet the printer still asks for the paper to be inserted into the manual feed, then one of the settings in the software you are using needs to be changed.

For most windows based applications, you can find a “page setup” menu; in this menu, there is a section that specifies the tray being used to print from.
Make sure the setting in page setup is set to “tray 1” and not “manual”

Thank you,

How do I unjam paper in HL 2142


You open your printer (use your manual to correctly do this)

check all paper paths to see if any paper is stuck

Next take out the toner and drum and check again for any stray scraps of paper that may have been stuck there.

Also open the paper tray and look inside there to see if anything is stuck there.

If your printer has a single sheet tray check there too

If your printer has a back opening, check there too

I recomend that you also purchase "paper path cleaning sheets" to keep the unit clean and paper jam free (once a week if you print constantly and twice a month if a casual user)

NEVER NEVER NEVER get mad and RIP out stuck paper. Such an action will break internal mechanisms inside your laser printer.

Hope this helps Have a great day

Can the Brothers HL 2040 handle printing 65lb


It probably can but only from the front slot, the paper tray has to bend the paper around the roller in the front when feeding.

Brother 2040 paper light .. continuous red


If you removed a piece. But more remains it must also be removed. Look closely along the paper path for something that will release to provide access to the path.

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)
