    Adding more info - first cartridge OK

  • jerbedn Aug 29, 2009

    My explanation of the problem was quite vague.
    I have two drums.
    Drum #1 works with both toner cartridges.
    Drum #2 has a blinking red light(paper) when I insert this drum in my printer. It starts up normal and then the red light starts to blink.
    Is there a senser or pickup on the drum? No paper in the drum. There was a paper jam once. I cleared it and printed afterwards.

Do you mean a Drum Unit? If you put a drum cartrige called a DR-someting in the unit you must reset the counter. The step by step instructions comes with the drum unit. If you don't have it open the front door and push each button on top of the machine. one of them should reset it then close the door.

Tried 1) reducing amount of paper, 2) cleaning corona wire, 3) checked for jams in toner cartridge and back door, 4) blew dust out of tray with compressed air. Any suggestions?


Check the paper flag in the cavity where the tray goes. If you are getting a constant no paper message that flag might be broken. Here is the Brother explanation of errors What do the LED indications mean Brother

PAPER LIGHT FLASHING RED BUT MACHINE HAS PAPER IN IT


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

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.

2070 printer shows red, flashing 'paper' lcd when there is paper in the tray. I have done the usual, checking tray, removing and restoring toner cartridge etc etc. I have tried a manual feed as this...


  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore. http://www.phillycopiers.com/fix/hl-2040-2070-fix.jpg

Brother MFC 240C has error message ''NO BLACK CARTRIDGE'' even though new cartridge is installed.


I learned this one from a Brother tech, and it usually works:
  1. Put your machine where you can easily reach the power plug.
  2. Lay a few layers of paper on the desk beside it to protect the desk from ink.
  3. With the machine plugged in, remove all four inks. Stand them upright on those papers you laid down.
  4. Close the top.
  5. Unplug the machine and wait 15 seconds before plugging it back in.
  6. Of course, the machine will complain that there is no ink installed. It should tell you which color it want you to install first. Raise the top and install all inks, in the order it asks.
  7. Lower the top when all the inks are in, and the machine should return to normal.
These machines detect ink by shining a light through a clear rib in the cartridge. What you've done resets the machine's threshold between light and dark, so it recognizes full cartridges again.
If it doesn't work, try it once more, and you might still get lucky. otherwise, you may have a defective cartridge, or you may need a new main board$$$.
