Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer
The Paper light constantly flashes red. Have taken the printer to bits and cleaned all the parts, have even replaced toner and drum. anc changed the type of paper being used. Still the peper light flashes red.
That flashing paper light indicates a few things on these, most often it is related to paper not in tray or jammed/not picked up but I see in you case it isn't.......
Your light can also be indicating that the page size sent, it doesn't think it has so it is asking you to feed correct size paper as per document that you sent it, into the little slot at the front called the bypass...(change paper size setting in tray or document page size).
You can test if above is problem by unplugging USB turn off/on machine should come to green, press go button 5times supersuper fast, test print should print shortly.
If printing labels, card, transparencys or have setting as this paper type machine will default to manual pass (cause it needs to be feed those sort of things, straight, not from cassette.
It can also mean memory full or print overload, (pressing go button will start print of remaing data) Doc too complex
or Door open front or back
or even Clean Carona (blue slidy thing on drum)
Drum light fix below
Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button

Okay guys this is gonna sound stupid, but i called my IT guy. he came up, DC'ed the unit and placed it on my desk. he then reconnected it and it worked fine. apparently, after much trial and error, he figured out that moving it from it's stand and placing on a flat surface fixes it every time. however, this may just be isolated to my printer. but it worked so i thought i'd share.

I have had this problem intermittently for months then I read a post that said it was a dodgy setting in Word but gave no details so I did some investigating and found that the paper source was set to "Manual". Go to File > Page Setup > Paper > Paper Source and change to "Default Tray (Auto Select)". Now works fine.
